Check out the first round here! Lillian & Co. Bracelets — Um, hello! Aren’t these the most classy chic bracelets you ever did see? Such a subtle nod to Disney phrases and something you can easily wear to Disneyland and beyond. Anthology Candles — So these aren’t technically an accessory, but I’m going to say […]

Holiday Gift Guide For Kids

gift-guide-for-kids

Christmas shopping catalogs have been arriving left and right and the other week I let the kids create a cut and glue Christmas wish list as a simple craft. It was pretty fun seeing what they chose and hearing their reasoning. The stuff that catches kids eyes, I tell ya! Jemma had some odd choices glued to her […]

Holiday Gift Guide For Mamas

gift-guide-for-mamas

Ever since the want/need/wear/read philosophy for gift giving was born, I’ve tried to follow suite. It just makes sense! Especially for kids (and that gift guide is coming later this week!). Want/need/wear/read (with an extra category of “do” for experiences!) works well for mamas too, and in my case, just goes to show that I’m […]

The Star of Daddy’s Christmas Stocking

Raise your hand if your husband is the hardest person to buy gifts for. That’s me … raising both hands. Because, ya’ll, Dominic is THE hardest person to shop for. Christmas makes me cringe and birthdays and anniversaries aren’t any easier. And, I’m totally a gift giving person! I love giving gifts! He’s just a […]

Bring On the Milestones, Baby!

Reid is such a good baby. The kind that gives you baby fever much too early. He’s easy going and happy go lucky. Always smiling and quite the little crawler … and one-handed balancing stander as of late! He’s a good little sleeper, comparatively to his big siblings at least, and this boy can gobble down a […]

Christmas Cards On My Mind + a Minted Giveaway

cards-on-gold_2

I’ve always believed that once you do something three times in a row, it becomes a tradition. And so, as of this year, ordering holiday cards from Minted is officially an annual tradition for us!  This isn’t our 4th year with Minted just because though. I return because their photo card options are totally my style (and truly get better […]

Page Turners

Ya’ll know I love a good book, but you know what I love even more — a good series! One of the worst parts about being a reader is falling love with a series and then having to wait for a new release. It’s one of those love/hate scenarios. Like, how I love going to […]

This + That

pumpkins

Forgive the quintessential pumpkin photo. But, for real, it’s October and aren’t they just glorious? We marched our way to the patch this afternoon with some friends. Max’s preschool field trip was canceled last week due to the Great Pacific Northwest Storm of 2016 (that didn’t actually happen) and it just doesn’t feel like Fall without […]

Happy Birthday to Me + a Lily Jade Giveaway!

Rosie in Brandy

I’M THIRTY!!! The big 3-0! Today was a normal, hum-drum day. That’s what happens when you’re a mama and your birthday falls on a weekday :) The kids and I ate maple glazed old fashioned donuts as a treat for breakfast and Jem and I shared one of the new Pumpkin Spice bottled Frappuccino. When […]
