SWIM LESSONS, AGAIN!

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Swim lessons started again this week! Last year, Lia was NOT a fan of swim lessons. She cried and refused to jump in the pool and did not want to go back after the first lesson. 


So, we did a second week last year. And that one went a little better. She was excited, at least!

SUMMER KICK-OFF KIT!

Friday, June 9, 2017


Summer officially set in two weeks ago when school ended here, but Lia has been at her grandparents house since then and I don't feel like our summer really starts until we get her back this weekend, so I threw together a little summer kick-off kit to celebrate!

SUMMER READS

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

With the kids out of town last week, I've had some extra time on my hands! It's been great (and quiet!) and I've spent a lot of it reading. Stillhouse Lake and Dead Certain are my latest reads. They were great! But, they are also mystery/thriller novels and I'm ready to sink into a few more lightweight reads as well. 

DESIGN BOOKS

Tuesday, June 6, 2017


I found this book on our kitchen table amongst flowers and handmade cards on Mother's Day! I've had my eye on it for a while but I wanted my own copy. Something I can dig into, make marks on, dog-ear favorite pages.

SHOPPING FOR KIDS

Thursday, June 1, 2017


Shopping is fun, right? But shopping with kids is a whole different thing! I get stuck carrying around a heavy bag full of snacks and diapers and any tricks I can find to get my kids through a shopping trip and generally I end up chasing Nico out of displays and answering nonstop questions from Lia. It normally isn't fun or productive!

So, I've started online shopping for my kids. It's easy enough to determine the size they'll need in most items and I can find great deals. A few of my go-tos are Gap, Old Navy, and H&M. But, my favorite is ThredUp. Thredup is an online consignment store for kids and adults. They only take the best of the crop!
