We are such huge fans of Etsy shop Goose Grease! Run by husband and wife team based in Brooklyn, NY, we would gladly take one of each of their awesome line-up!
This top and yoyo combo comes with paint, brushes and a top coat to seal it. Perfect for those days you’re stuck indoors, and we love giving them as birthday party gifts as well!
Check out some of our other favorites from the shop:
We were talking earlier about how lazy each of our mornings usually are. We very slowly work up to starting the day with our kids, and unless we have something pressing scheduled, here’s the agenda: the boys come in each of our respective beds for a little morning snuggle. Eventually they start asking for a beverage of some sort, so we stumble out to our kitchens to start up breakfast. In the next couple hours eventually we will give them a bath and then maybe an hour more they’re finally dressed. Lazy mornings are the best, aren’t they? Maybe a slight exaggeration, but lovely nonetheless. With the two oldest Small Fry boys starting preschool, schedules are getting a little bit more structured and as much as we love those slow-starting days, here’s a quick tip for the mornings you just have to get out the door.
Microwaved Eggs! It sounds crazy, but they fluffy as can be and delicious, and for two eggs it only takes one minute and fifteen seconds! Give it a try and let us know how you like it!
What are some of your favorite time savers for those hectic mornings? We’d love to hear!
Hello Hi Apparel makes the clothes kids and adults love to wear, and it’s as simple as that! Absolute comfort, and absolutely cool. Created by Sam Means of one of our favorite bands of our youth, The Format, and his wife Anita, they’ve been creating apparel for bands and artists for the last ten years and finally decided to launch a kid’s line. We couldn’t be more thrilled!
Occasionally during Utah winters, we’ll get some blissfully near-balmy forty plus degree days. Days where you can actually feel the warmth of the sun on your cheeks and being outside is enjoyable for longer than a few minutes. On those days, we love to take advantage and enjoy these beautiful scenes where we live.
We came equipped with a Clemmie Sue teepee to block some of that occasional icy wind that tends to whip up in the mountains. A picnic of grilled cheese and hot cocoa warmed our bellies, we are still coming up with awesome ways to use those Pebeo porcelain markers and added a little something extra to a tray full of mugs.
