Give Please A Chance: Please Jar

By Nicole, this post is sponsored by Jimmy Patterson Books. My kids are visual learners. If there isn’t something in their face, hands and mouth, it’s hard for them to grasp what is trying to be taught. With Christmas coming, they seem to be getting a slightly more demanding, naturally, but it isn’t welcome. Give please a chance came in the mail just as we started our Please and Thank you Jar. Dash and Sunny each have their own jar and their own pile of felt balls. When they go out of their way to say please, thank you, or … Read more

This month’s partnership with Mo Mail is so incredible! Nanette’s Baguette is a story of Nanette who gets the exciting repsonsibility of going to the bakery to buy a baguette. Except it smells so amazing that she can’t help it and she starts to eat it, before long she has plowed through the baguette. Now what? Grab a copy to find out!!In addition to the story, what makes it so remarkable is how it came to be! We love this film showing behind the scenes with Mr. Willems himself.

FRYday: Emily

Now that we’ve split up our Frydays I feel like I haven’t chatted with you all in so long! I have so much on my mind so let’s get to it: WEARING: I have been such a baby about getting back to exercising. I know myself and if I go to a class I am gonna go all out and I won’t be able to walk for a week after. So, I’m trying SO hard to ease myself into it. Like 10 push ups a or walking hills with Raleigh strapped in this Linen Ergo. Loving these killer Pureboost Adidas, there’s … Read more

First Forty Days

I have had this book recommended to me several times since being pregnant and so I am so happy to have them here sharing their tips for nurturing your post-partum self. They open the conversation about important the first 40 days are. I know of so many cultures that truly take care of the mother like you would the newborn. I don’t know if its just the culture here, or maybe a pressure I put on myself but it seems like life just goes on when you have a baby and I love all this book’s concepts of truly taking … Read more

forest fort DIY

Pillowfort – the stellar line of kids furniture, decor and bedding – launched at Target a little over a week ago and we’re weak in the knees. We can never get over good design for kids and seeing SO much of it all in one place like Target is almost too much to handle. So to celebrate, and because our boys are all about forts we knew we had to create a little reading tent for them. There are so many themes to pick from this line but the Camp Kiddo line was our favorite for this DIY. Camping, woodland … Read more
