best boy wardrobe tips!

All my best tips for creating a wardrobe both you and your boy will love! Filled with all my opinions — take it for what it’s worth! My #1 tip is to fill their closet only with pieces you both like. So when they start flexing their decision-making muscles you won’t cringe. I don’t take my kids shopping, ever. It’s not fun for anyone! At least yet. So I shop online and I pull my favorite items, items I know they’ll like that I like, too, on separate tabs and I show the boys all the tabs at once and … Read more


I’m sure you all already know H&M is my first stop for fashion for myself and my kids! Their new arrivals always excite me and seem to land right with what I want to be wearing each season. HAYES: Sweatshirt // Socks // Shorts CALLUM: Pants // Sneakers // Jacket // T-shirt EMILY: Blouse // Sandals // Jeans // Earrings

abercrombie kids!

This post is brought to you by Abercrombie Kids. All opinions are my own. Abercrombie Kids sent my boys the greatest back-to-school care package and I wanted to share what my kids picked and a few of my other favorite items from their Fall Arrivals! One thing to note about Abercrombie Kids, the clothing quality is truly next level. Russ has commented on clothing maybe three times in his life said how soft, yet durable the t-shirts felt!  As I’ve been shopping for my kids for Back to School, Abercrombie Kids is sort of in a class of its own as far … Read more

Backpack season is upon us! So many darling options out there! I broke it down for boys + girls and there’s a mix of preschool size on up to youth.

Back To School Shoes

Sponsored by Rack Room Shoes. Back to School means so many things for our family this year, as a whole and for each individual and we might all need a little extra dose of courage for Back to School 2018!  I need all the tips on how to make moving to a new place right before school easier, more peaceful, or even fun for the kids. It might keep me up at night a little. We’ve started attending church in our new area, meeting up with a couple people nearby that have kids around their age, hopefully that will help! Gonna … Read more

DIY Reading Fort

This post is sponsored by Kellogg’s. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Currently my boys share a room and both of them have been known to yell to the other “I just need some space!” so I knew it was time to create another option for them if they need to get some alone time in! A good ol’ sheet fort on my bed (since I’m never in there until way past their bedtime anyway) is just what they doctor ordered. We’ve had an ongoing incentive at our house that they can earn different rewards for every book that … Read more

pickleball summer

This post has been sponsored by Danone Waters of America. All thoughts and opinions are my own. So my husband is weirdly good at tennis and LOVES playing in the warm months. Trouble is, I am not so good! He’s asked for years and years for us to spend time playing, but I never seem to get better– ha! A few years ago we tried out Pickleball, have you played? It’s essentially a mix of tennis + ping pong, and it is so fun! I feel like I was able to pick it up and improve so much faster! The … Read more
