Headed to Disney + Dining Reservations

Hi Friends!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We made our drive down to Orlando yesterday, and are heading to the Magic Kingdom today!!  I will share ALLLLLLLLL the details (probably far more than you are interested in, haha!) once we get back, especially how we SURPRISED the kids with the entire Disney trip, but I’m keeping it short and sweet today! Since I typically share my meal plan for the week on Mondays, I thought I’d share our[Read more]

Goat & Lulu Obsession: LipSense

I am a big fan of lipstick. And I have been for years– since I started wearing makeup regularly- like back in 7th grade!  Even throughout college, I worked at the Lancome counter in the Lincoln, Nebraska Von Maur because I loved makeup so much (one of my all-time favorite jobs, by the way)!  I like brights, neutrals, pinks, REDS, corals, berries, and everything in between, and it is extremely unusual to see me without lipstick on.  So naturally, when[Read more]

Five on Friday

Hello friends!  I know I say this all the time but WHOOOAAAA, this week has been ridiculous.  But YEAH– we have three kids, three businesses we’re running, on top of friends, family, baseball/softball, OH YEAH I NEED TO CLEAN THE HOUSE AND DO SOME LAUNDRY, church, school, I NEED TO SHOWER AT SOME POINT, and oh yeah, SLEEP!  Haha, no rest for the weary, right?!  Here are five things for this Friday before the three day weekend (cheers to that, amirite??!),[Read more]

What I Wore

I have done a pretty bad job of taking photos of my outfits over the course of the last few weeks!  But I have a few for you today, and will try to do better for next week.  So here are a few things I’ve been wearing lately: Embroidery is my jam, and I can’t wait to continue the trend into fall.  Also, I wore this dress/tunic on Mother’s Day with a ruffled skirt extender, but I also love how[Read more]

Solar Eclipse 2017

We had such a fun afternoon watching the eclipse as a family yesterday!  I checked the kids out of school after Brantley was so sweet and said she wanted to watch the eclipse with her brother and sister.  So we had a little eclipse party in our driveway! We headed outside at about 2:00, knowing that it was going to peak about 2:37.  We spread out a quilt, got out our eclipse-themed snacks, and alternated back and forth on the[Read more]

What Excites Your Kids?

Children can be so gloriously unpredictable.  We can spend so much time and money planning a fun surprise or outing for them, only to elicit a lukewarm reception, but they go bananas over a new bottle of bubble bath.  Sometimes the simplest things to us adults totally blow the minds of our kids!  What a lesson for us, right?  The world can seem to be full of unremarkable things to us but are actually so magical through our childrens’ eyes!  Inspired by this post[Read more]

What Podcasts are You Listening To?

Great part about working from home: Pretty much everything.  Flexibility, working in pjs (if so inclined), lunch with the kiddos, etc. Not so great part about working from home: It can get sooooooooo quiet sometimes that the silence itself is almost distracting!  And then PODCASTS entered into my life. Maybe I was a bit late on the podcast bandwagon, being a millennial and all (let me first just explain that I am a very old millennial, in fact almost as old as you can get[Read more]

Monday Randoms + Fitted White Dress + Monday Meal Plan

Hello Friends, and Hello Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are excited about the new week ahead of us!  I’ve had so many things running through my head lately, and so I’m sharing a bunch of randoms to start the week. We dropped all three kids off yesterday for a week at Bammy and PaDaddy’s for Summer Camp in the mountains!  The kids are joining their cousin Sally Kate for 5 days of swim lessons, dance lessons,[Read more]

What I Wore + What Bammy Wore Too!

Since I didn’t post my WIW last Wednesday, I have a whole slew of outfits to share today!  And no doubt, the best part is that since I’m sharing some outfits from my weekend away, Bammy is going to make her What I Wore debut!!!  So scroll through last week’s outfits and get to the good stuff if you’re so inclined. 🙂  Here’s what I wore the last two weeks: I cannot resist a white cotton top or dress for[Read more]

Handmade Closet: Ayda Top & Dress and Tammy’s Tulip Shorts Pattern Testing

Earlier this spring, I was so honored (and excited!!) to be invited to do some really fun pattern testing, and I am finally able to share the results with you today!  The amazingly talented Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline and Katie Skoog of The Simple Life Pattern Company joined forces to create the sweetest collaborative Mommy & Me 6-Pattern Collection!  I have several of both Caroline’s women’s patterns and Katie’s girl’s patterns and have tested for Caroline in the past, so testing for[Read more]
