Nordstrom Sale – Women’s Picks

Now, we’re certain you could find a blog or two that has highlighted all the best deals from the Nordstrom Sale – so instead of doing that we’re going to pare it way down and just show you what we would (and did, bye bye paycheck!) actually spend our money on. Investment pieces all the way down to killer deals, the common thread is that we love it.


We’re loving all the bucket bags, beautiful watches, amazing deals on Marc Jacobs sets, and of course hats galore for Fall! Oh and don’t forget the belt that every Kardashian/Jenner has been rocking, but now at a steep discount!


Romantic tops, shift dresses, lush jackets and vests and hold up– they’re basically giving Patagonia (in all sizes) away.

And because a good t-shirt needs it’s own carousel here’s a handful most under $20. All these tees come in a plethora of colors so don’t forget to click over to see them all!  Also the coziest pajama set in the land for under $40. We can’t even touch how many amazing options on denim this year, so head over HERE to peek at your favorites!


And even though shoes are sort of let-down this year, there are still some great options! Winter boots, over-the-knee, beautiful pumps, and sneakers galore. Find them all here.


One of the best parts of the N-Sale is the beauty exclusives and gift sets. They make special sizes and collections of cult favorites and a discount so you can try all that makeup everyone raves about with less risk. Get a good sampling under your belt and then you’ll know what to buy in full size the next time around! Don’t forget Small Fry’s favorites like Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant // Anastasia Brow Kit // Living Proof Hair Products (dry shampoo is THE best) // Mario Badescu for stubborn skin // And all our favorite perfumes, below!

potty training 101

Oh, potty training! Amongst ourselves it is in the top ranking for our least favorite tasks as parents. Keeping your cool and being a constant source of positive encouragement, while trying not to pull your hair out? Where is our Oscar? We teamed up with Lysol
to brainstorm our best potty training tips. Our middle boys are all four so it wasn’t that long ago that we traversed this terrain, and to be honest we still deal with accidents at night on occasion, so we’re for sure not out of the woods! Potty training takes a long time, and sometimes they’re just not ready, and that’s ok! We’ve all found waiting until they are equals a much happier potty training experience!

We created this little film with our main guy Jenner Brown to share our tips, but to summarize you have to be prepared and have the tools at your fingertips. We go through a roll a week of these wipes so of course they are a huge part of any messy job and killing 99.9% of those bathroom germs* in one swipe is a busy mom’s kind of efficiency!

Nordstrom Sale – Active + Baby Gear

Nordstrom Sale is here! Get exclusive deals on Fall 2016 trends before they go back to regular price! If you get a Nordstrom Debit card you have early access to the sale all week long. Here’s what we’re digging!


Zella Crop // I buy these EVERY anniversary sale! Too good of a sale to pass up! I also love the full length. I am DEAD over their new high waisted version with the mesh – getting all frisky Zella.

I’m DEFINITELY going to need these Nikes and they’ll sell out fast. I am obsessed with working out in Nike Free’s so these ones are being added to my collection. As I a married to a Nike Fanatic I can tell you these prices are insane. Love this Nike bra and don’t forget Nike’s for your kiddos for back to school!

I have yet to own any Alo but with it on the sale this year I definitely will! These leggings are to die for and these one’s also.

Want to throw it back to your old school days of dressing like sporty spice? Me too. This  retro Adidas jacket is in my basket. And this cropped Adidas hoodie (heart eyes.)

My husband and I are both Patagonia fans – he himself owns over 15 jackets, they’re the best for cold winters! This deal is too good to pass up, I never see them so discounted. This fleece is so dang pretty too.

mobile summer

By. Nicole This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own. 

One thing we like to do at the beginning of the summer is put together a car kit for on-the-go fun. It makes being spontaneous so much easier if you have what you need on hand! Here’s what we like to have in the trunk: Swimming and all that it entails is usually the most gear we need for spontaneous summer adventures so having trunks, towels, sunscreen, hats and toys for the pool are a must! Mobile Summer FunBeing out and about all day means we will inevitably need snacks (swimming works up the biggest appetite in us all!) but it needs to be something that will stay in the car so that’s why we love Quaker Oats® Chewy Granola bars! Easy for on-the-go fun and my kids love them. We also like to have fun toys on hand for a stop at the park or pool. These are things I always forget to pack on swim days and as soon as we arrive at our destination, having toys to play with and share with buddies are always the first things they ask for.Mobile Summer Fun To be ready for the reverse, we like also like to pack nicer outfits to switch into for dinner or a night out after. My kids hate wearing wet clothes so the dry alternates get used often! Toss it all in a basket or tote and you’ll never need to make a trip home to make your adventure happen!Mobile Summer FunDisclosure: This post is in partnership with The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own, Check out all the amazing Chewy Granola flavors you can take on the go her



Hey! Im so excited about my FRYday picks this week! These are some real gems.

Wearing: In the way of fashion, I have a new obsession. These cropped flares (or kick flares as some brands refer to them are EVERYTHING to me. I bought more pairs than i deserve, and have been living in them. They are so refreshing. Ive grown tired of the same old skinny jeans, but I’ve been in such a casual funk. These have been the perfect fix for me. These ones from Madewell are one of my very favorite fitting pairs and they are 50% off which is a dream come true for you all!


My sunglass fetish lives on. I told my friend who was questioning the amount of money I spend on them monthly that its a great long term investment plan. As long as I care for them they hold their value and can be resold at any time. Consider it…food storage. (BIG BIG WINK) These are the latest.

Decorating: Strewn all over my house are copy throw blankets. I like to be able to get cozy any place, any time. I even sneak blankets into the movie theater with me. Weird? This is just one of the pretty throws I’ve snagged lately.

I don’t have a place in my house for this yet, but I LOVE these rode gold, single bulb pendant so much! Any ideas of where to instal it? Maybe a few in a line in the bathroom? I cant decide.

Eating: The kids and I spent the last month in San Diego. One long month of vacation eating is rough. I am going to talk more about this in a full post dedicated to this life saver, but for now, here is a preview to get your mouth watering. Project Juice!



Wearing: Of course now that I can’t work out (two more weeks until that 6 week check-up!) it’s all I can think about. Ha! Where was this desire a few months ago? It’s not about losing weight, I really am just missing the release and rush I get from a good work out! Buying up a few pieces in my postpartum size from this round-up to get me excited. Top // Bottom

Reading: Haven’t started this yet but it’s my book club’s latest pick! Anyone read it?

Listening: This Ted Talk. When I start to panic about all the things wrong with this country as of late, I think she’s cracked the case. “Why you think you’re right even if you’re wrong.”

Decorating: Loving my marble laptop case! Such a good deal too.

Eating: Per all your suggestions my last Fryday I cut out dairy and living my sad non-cheese life. Basically all my favorite foods – ta ta for now. I am not totally convinced that it’s helping, part of me thinks he’s just still trying to sort out his digestion (being a month early?) and it’s gonna be rough for awhile. BUT! Cant imagine it’s hurting either, so pressing on.




Wearing: One of my favorite pair of white Jeans is on sale! These are a summer staple for me and should be for everyone!

We have been road tripping and I’ve been guilty of living in these!

Eating: This cup has been life changing for my water consumption (I’m finally off Diet Coke!!)

I’m also wearing new eyebrows 🙈 I would have never thought I would do it but I got my eyebrows microbladed and I absolutely love it!! Mel from @allure.artistry in Utah is the only way to go!! It’s made my life so much easier!

I still fill in occasionally with the brow whiz.

Watching: Olympic trials!!!!!! You guys the Olympics are my life and I can’t freaking wait!!! Already planning my opening ceremony party! My favorite party store better be ready!

Similac: Fruit & PB Toast

Today is our last post with Similac Go & Grow and we are sad to see it end! We love having food recipes here on Small Fry, we’ll have to be better about keeping it going in the future! kellyfondots_jennasimilac4-5327There isn’t a kid in the world who won’t eat toast and getting creative with bread is all the rage so why not add some Similac Go & Grow to it to help amp up those nutrition facts and because it’s flavorless it’s no problem!kellyfondots_jennasimilac4-5320

There isn’t much of a recipe here except to add the Go & Grow packet to whatever nut butter you choose! Almond, Peanut Butter, Nutella etc…get creative! kellyfondots_jennasimilac4-5311

We love adding fruit like bananas and strawberries and adding some chia seeds and honey for added flavor and fiber.kellyfondots_jennasimilac4-5316


And it’s obviously kiddo approved! Get your Go & Grow here and head to our instagram @smallfryblog for a fun giveaway!
