  • Quarantine cuties! I bought these outfits before the lockdown because we were scheduled to be traveling this week. Since their hair was done we might as well 📸. But why are they so cool! Links to their outfits on the blog. #targetstyle #fashionkids
  • Those pedicures hit diff when you can’t go to the nails shop! It had gotten so bad that I didn’t want to touch my own feet. I grabbed my pumice, cuticle remover, soaked my feet and went to work! These were supposed to be my spring summer sandals. Got them from ASOS before ish got real! I’ll link them in my stories shortly.
  • Shout out to all the moms holding it down and homeschooling!  These kids may be trying to take us out but we got this!  @Supermomculture #dontrushchallenge featuring

  • No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

Prepping Tips for Go RVing

July 10, 2017

I just returned home from a family trip that I never imagined I would be taking. If you follow me on Instagram or SnapChat you saw that we went camping. I’m so blessed that my family got to have this experience. Before I get into details of our RV trip, I wanted to share with you how I prepared. I’m from Chicago originally, a big city and I don’t know the first thing about camping.  With the help of Pinterest and some major planning, I pulled off this amazing summer trip with Go RVing.

1. After the initial shock of “What did I get myself into’’ I went to GoRVing.com to learn more. I looked at what was included in the RV, so I would know what I needed to pack.

2. Research campgrounds. Since this is the first time doing any sort of camping for both me and my husband, we knew we wanted to stay in Georgia. There are a ton of RV campgrounds. We just looked for one that had the best amenities.

3. Head to Pinterest. I headed to Pinterest and searched RVing. Of course, it was information overload. I stumbled upon a few helpful packing lists that I printed out.

4. Break down lists. I broke up my lists into sections. Kitchen, First Aid, bed, bath, and clothing. This helped me to focus on each one to make sure I had everything.

5. Meal plan and prep. Again, I went to Pinterest for meal ideas. I tried to find the easiest meals that I could make in our small kitchen.

6. Head to the dollar store. I’m the kind of person that likes to have everything that I can think of before I leave. I may be one of the few people that can spend $100 in the dollar store. You’d be surprised how many things you can find for any trip.

7. Call the campground. I called the campground to ask every question I could think of. They happily answered all of them.

8. Pack light. I kept everyone to one backpack for the trip. I didn’t even bring makeup. Ok, I brought concealer and a brow pencil.

9. Hair. One thing I knew I wasn’t going to do was be responsible for combing 3 heads of hair while on our RVing trip. The girls wore braids and twist. I wore hats with a bun in the back. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

10. Plan activities. I always try to make a “flexible” schedule before any trip.  Check out your parks’ attractions ahead of time. Bring some board games and cards with you as well.

We may have packed light on the clothing, but I may have gone overboard on the kitchen. Our Type C motorhome had a full kitchen, and I wanted to make sure I made the most of it.  In addition to the kitchen, I made sure I had a first aid kit, bug repellent, and a toolbox.

Now that I feel like an RV pro, I can’t wait for the next trip! I’ll be sharing more from our RVing trip soon! Until then, you can learn more about Go RVing HERE.

Have you ever been RVing or camping? How do you prepare?

    Wow! Thanks for sharing this info. I am in the same bucket as you were….never went camping and wouldn’t have a clue on how to prepare. I know my kids will enjoy doing this one day. Now I have a true process to follow!!
