FRYday: Nicole

Hey friends!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that Emily and Jenna and I take turns in the spotlight each Friday. It seems like ages since I’ve been writing a Fryday post. Happy to be here to chat about my recent favorites things!untitled-1

On my table, always. This. I met the founder of Soma last year at a retreat in San Francisco. Thats when I knew life would never be the same. They just released this gorgeous water bottle that I am literally dead over. NOTHING is more perfect.

On the floor in Dash and Sunny’s room is this pretty rug!

In the concrete hallway for this cool fall weather I added this runner.

I created a little study/lounge room upstairs next to my bedroom. Currently I’m sitting in this pretty thing! Next I want to buy this black one for downstairs in the living room.

These are little wild, but sometimes I’m down with some wild sunnies. The tortoise keeps them tame.

Im loving clogs this fall, I especially appreciate the extra height these platforms give me, when I’m feeling a little frump.

AAAANNNNNDDDD that’s a wrap!

Love ya!

We’re SO excited to announce our FIRST (we hope the first of many) ANNUAL


A family-friendly Halloween Party, Monday October 31st from 4-7 pm! We will be partying at White Shanty (still time to enter their killer giveaway here!) in Provo, UT so LOCALS this is for you!! In addition to White Shanty we’re teaming up with these awesome locals shops:


Provo Family Halloween Party

We wanted with all our hearts for it to be free, but it became to hard to plan without any concrete numbers of guests so we’ll be selling tickets for $3 at the door and we have limited tickets so once they’re gone, we won’t be allowing anymore in. (We’ll be sure to post online if we sell out, but we don’t anticipate we will, as we said just needed a number to plan on!)

The $3 ticket will be for any kiddo who wants to participate in the fun and games! In addition to the games, we’ll have giveaways, dancing, a Smilebooth!, other photo-ops, a costume parade, food, and lots more. Something fun and safe for your fam to do before heading out to trick-or-treat or in place of trick-or-treating if you have little ones with early bedtimes!

You can buy your ticket at the door or if you want to make sure you have a spot, you can pay for your tickets here! Just put the names of the kids tickets’ your purchasing for in the “special instructions” and we’ll have your tickets reserved at the entrance for you!

8 baby carrier halloween costumes

Halloween with a baby and older kids can be tricky! Some parents might split up or have on stay home, but if you’re committed to trick-or-treating as a family this is the post for you! Pushing a stroller is great for Halloween night until you get to stairs, so we’ve found that baby wearing is your best bet for keeping up with your big kids. These baby carrier Halloween costumes are hilarious and so inventive!

First you need a carrier. You know we love the Ergo! I have used this nearly everyday of Raleigh’s 4 months. Russ loves it, too. It’s been such a big help with my transition to three kids and I love that he’s getting to the size where I can flip him around and look at the world since he’s constantly craning his neck anyway. 😉 Find their color selection here! We have the gray Adapt and the linen and love both.Baby Carrier Halloween Costume Ideas Baby Carrier Halloween Costume Ideas

Then you just need some felt, safety pins, glue and a killer idea. Here are EIGHT of our favorites from around the web:
