    Superhero Classroom Valentine Cards!

    Admittedly, I’m not someone who goes all out for Valentines, I think it’s still to close after Christmas and I feel like I kind of save it for Easter! But now that I have one of my kids in school, Ive found myself a little more excited for it than usual. Picking out cards for him to handout in his class was so much fun, and since Minted has such a huge selection, we had so many fun ones to choose from! (I shared a bunch of my favorites HERE!) His teacher emailed us letting us know they’re going to take all the Valentines that day and each child is…

    s’mores | hauler back | super friend | taco | warm heart | tickled pink This is the first time I’ve had to buy classroom valentines cards for one of my kids, and all I gotta say is, this ish just ain’t what it used to be! I remember we’d get a box of cards, usually just cardboard pieces that we would have to separate and stick a lollipop or something on the back.

    Christmas in Leavenworth

    This post may be a few weeks late, but I couldn’t not share our trip to Leavenworth with you guys, (and maybe to document it for myself too!), because it was sooo magical! The pictures wont do it justice and if you ever get a chance to go, don’t hesitate! There are so many delicious places to eat and beautiful sights to see! (Oh & if you find yourself there without kids, there are endless wine tastings all over this quaint little town!) There are lots of photos, and I made a little video too. It’s terrible quality, mostly videos saved from snapchat but I just wanted to share this…

    Christmas 2016 Vacation Recap!

    Now that I have one of my boys in school, Christmas vacation takes on a whole new meaning. It was so, soo good to have all three boys together every day all day, so good to just stay in our pjs for five days playing with all our christmas presents, so good drinking endless hot cocoa, building gingerbread houses, taking a trip to Leavenworth, to just give up the routine for a bit! I never wanted any of it to end, because like everything else, it goes by to quickly, and here we are, back at school, at work, and back to routine. Its good, I like it, but I’d…

    Christmas Gifting with Minted

    cannon beach print I love personalizing and finding unique gifts at Christmas for those people closest to me. It’s a bit more special and really shows that you put a lot of thought into it. Minted is one of my favorite places to go for such gifts. There are so many beautiful pieces to choose from. One of my favorites are the foil-pressed state maps. Especially being in the military, everyone is away from home, and giving them a little piece of home for their wall, is so special. Plus these pieces are so beautifully made. (I got one for a friend for Christmas, but I couldn’t quite post it…

    Cozy for Christmas (Pajamas for the family!)

    beanie | sweater | sweatpants | C’s pajamas When you’re juuuuust about to be four year old begs you to take pictures, you never, ever say no! This handsome guy and I have gotten so much time together these last few months since my oldest started school and its so incredibly amazing to get even closer to him and have so much one on one time. He drives me batshit crazier than anyone else in my house, but he also loves the absolute hardest. (and now I want to wake him up to squeeze another hug from him just so those little arms will wrap around my neck.) I digress.…
