gift guides: land of nod!

No secret here how much we love Land of Nod year ’round, but especially for the Holidays! We look forward to their Holiday catalog each year and seeing the wonderful, whimsical collections. We wanted to share a few of our own collections of things that caught our eye this year! Our boys love to pretend to “camp-out” any chance they get with sheet forts and binoculars. Any of these gifts would ramp up their playtime or add a touch of that old time camp feeling to their play space. Sleeping bag in the perfect plaid and retro camp pattern // … Read more

We made it! Recovering after a grueling work and play trip has proved to be no easy task so we’re clearing schedules and taking it as easy as possible this weekend! Here’s what we’re thinking about: NICOLE: Wearing: I always cary a backpack when traveling, and we spent the last week in NY together as a team (more to come on that, next week!) This is the pack I carried. It’s a little smaller than my usual go-to’s (see here and here) which was perfect since I wasn’t traveling with my kids.
