Hello, I’m Bee, a twenty six year-old mother of one and wife. I created Beesosimple.com to share my journey through motherhood and life. I'm an avid Netflix watcher and self proclaimed foodie, who enjoys cherishing the simple moments in life.
Between extracurricular activities, work, sports, and play dates the role of mom can be both the most rewarding and demanding job in the world. So figuring out what’s for dinner should be quick and stress free for a change. I have teamed up with the beautiful sisters, Mia and Sante, from Leave It To Mama for a fun summer series featuring mom-friendly recipes and family time ideas the little ones will love.
For this installment, we wanted to feature a recipe that was healthier, simple to prepare, and something all of our kids could enjoy. After collectively brainstorming through our mental recipe books, a taco bar seemed like the perfect idea.
In my household, we kept it pretty basic: ground turkey burger, shredded cheese and carrots, romaine lettuce, sautéed corn, and soft shell tortillas laid out assembly line style for easy taco creation. The nice thing is - I only have to cook the turkey burger and corn while still providing a filling whole foods meal in the end. Lately my daughter has been on the picky side with her choices in food, so this was a good way to give her a variety of options to pick from.
I’m able to have the meal ready in about 30 minutes, which works well with my busy schedule and my husband’s never-ending hunger. Taco bar will definitely stay in my personal go-to recipe book and I can’t wait to try different ingredients and table settings.

My husband and I decided to take a quick trip to San Francisco with our daughter. This was pretty significant due to it being our first trip on a plane together. Once I wrapped my head around the one hour flight with a potty-trained nearly three year old, it was full steam ahead.
If you haven't guessed by now- I'm a thinker. I have to stop myself from over-thinking, analyzing and being too type-A. So this family first was bound to be the ultimate test.
I considered the basic traveling questions-weather, transportation and lodging. Then added the car seat, stroller, and entertainment components. Luckily, there are some great options on the market that made my planning easy.
I researched the gate check options for our existing car seat - Safety 1st - Elite 80 Air Plus (which is no longer available but a phenomenal seat) & stroller by Britax, B-Agile. Both are great for daily use but considered bulky in the travel world. So I weighed my options for renting a car seat upon arrival and purchasing an umbrella stroller.

Once we decided to take our gear, which was free to check on Southwest Airlines, everything fell into place. I ordered two travel bags (see below), reviewed a list of family excursions and prepared for an adventure.
Big questions: Did the bags rip? NO. Wheels break? NO. Were they useful? Both were superb! Stood the up to the test with ease.
