We are giving our FRYdays a little makeover today, we hope you like it! Just a little peek into different elements of our lives each week in the form of these little lists. We hope you’ll share yours with us, too!
READING: “Boys Should Be Boys: 7 Secrets to Raising Healthy Sons: helps parents restore the delights of boyhood and enable today’s boys to become the mature, confident, and thoughtful men of tomorrow. Boys will always be boys–rambunctious, adventurous, and curious, climbing trees, building forts, playing tackle football, and pushing their growing bodies to the limit as part of the rite of passage into manhood. But today our sons face an increasingly hostile world that doesn’t value the high-spirited, magical nature of boys.” That summary alone sold me!
LISTENING: Bijou Market’s Spring Playlist, I can’t quit it!
ANTICIPATING: Kindergarten for Dash. Ugh!
DECORATING: I love decorating with beautiful coffee table books, some of my favorite recent purchases Christian Louboutin, Tom Ford and Harper’s Bazaar’s Greatest Hits. Locals, Alice Lane’s Wonderland has an incredible selection!
WORRYING: Always worrying about raising Dash and Sunny in a split family.
WATCHING: I don’t watch TV (it’s true she doesn’t, ever! -Em) but my boys have been loving the Leap Frog shows on Netflix!
WEARING: I am obsessed with these Lululemon pants. I know a lot of products say you can wear them from working out to everyday activities, but these you actually can. // Wearing these sandals like crazy, such a great Summer staple that can be dressed up or down. // Also, this highlighter is crazy amazing!
READING: The Smartest Kids in the World. I’ve been thinking lots about how what we focus and praise our kids for is what they become. I’ve seen how the school system can try to label and confine and I always hope to celebrate children for being just who they are! Loving this book.
LISTENING: This American Life on NPR. Always so good, but the “Batman” epsiode is not to be missed.
ANTICIPATING: Visiting Utah this month and eating all the things!!
DECORATING: With plants! Ivy, rubber plants, Hydrangeas, succulents, whatever I can get my hands on!
WORRYING: About vaccinating Lolly. For some reason it’s been really tough for me this time and I can’t bring myself to do it even though I believe in it!!
WATCHING: The Sandlot is on daily at my house, my boys are obsessed. Don’t blame them!
READING: I’ve had These is My Words recommended to me one hundred times, and I finally bought and devoured it. It lives up to all the hype.
LISTENING: I have listened to Sia’s Elastic Heart on repeat for days. I tend to do that, overplay until I’m sick of it. The lyrics stay with me long after the song is over.
ANTICIPATING: My older sister and her little guy (and her little gal in utero!) are coming to stay with us for a month while her husband moves them cross country and I can’t wait!
DECORATING: Nicole and Jenna got me on the pouf train. I switched out my ottoman for a giant one from Home Goods and this one, too! I love that its multifunctional and the boys never stop playing with them.
WORRYING: My little brother got himself into some trouble and is facing the consequences. I am praying non-stop for his welfare. It has re-bonded my family together which is a definite silver lining!
WATCHING: I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the Jinx after we watched it a couple months ago. Until I watched Going Clear. This world, man. Both are on HBO (the HBO GO app is free for the first month, so get it and watch both immediately. That is if you can handle insane people.)
