Learning Songs

By Nicole.

This summer as we road tripped to and from the beach, to grandmas and other locations near and far, we realized we were spending an awful lot of time in the car. We always listen to music, it’s uplifting and happy music, but still, its sort of just killing time, right? About halfway through the summer I started to explore other options. I knew the kids still wanted MUSIC. They love to sing, but I wanted them to learn while at it. Thus inspired our learning playlist.

I hope these songs, and this Podcast ( my kids are silent and completed tuned in while listening, every time! ) will help you feel better about all the time spent behind the wheel! It sure has us! (If you’re on your phone you can access it here through Spotify as well, just not on your computer. Here is the computer version.)

Browsing Amazon’s curation of Athleisure (a trend we love for ourselves but hate for our kids. When will the basketball shorts-to-school trend ENDDD?!) They always have the best round-ups, but we couldn’t help but spot one recurring favorite in the mix: PUMA!

We see you Puma. Bein’ awesome. Here’s the work out pants that caught our eye and are super affordable between $40-$60! When you’re used to the lulu price tag, these are a breath of fresh air!pumapants

OLLY Smoothies!

By Jenna.
Being a busy Mom it can be tough to get my nutrition in. I remember hearing people say “I forgot to eat” and thinking how is that EVEN possible. Then I became a Mom! It IS possible.
We’ve partnered with OLLY before and my family is die hard over their vitamins, but now they’ve come out with Smoothies and I’m in LOVE!
kellyfondots_ollysmallfry-5-of-10-2These incredible line of smoothies are not meant to be meal replacements but rather a quick on the go snack or even a yummy dessert. They’re packed with protein and even better, TASTY!
One scoop and you’re on your way and seriously guys they’re delish! kellyfondots_ollysmallfry-10-of-10

Rugs + Updates + Simplicity

By Nicole.

A few weeks ago I mentioned we were preparing for a move. Well good news. We are staying put! We decided we love the roots we have planted here, and it isn’t time to leave. SO, now that we are going to be here a while, we are going to do some updating. I will try and keep you posted as we make changes around the house. As this first change is a small one, it makes a profound difference to our main living area.ncc_8486

I added this new rug from Rug Expedition We have gone from minimal, to loud, and now back to minimal for our living room. I like how this feels. Its hand braided and adds a simplistic look. Our life moto right now is keep things simple, haha, really though. Saying no to the unnecessary and yes to all things peaceful and good. Hello, pretty new rug, We are glad to have you!

ncc_8484We have a concrete floor that has been super cool and fun, but its cold and we are seeking cozy for this coming winter, so large rugs are a must! We may lay a new wood floor, too. Stay tuned!ncc_8479

Rug Safari CorporationThanks Rug Expedition for this pretty add!
