Fashion Downsized – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I don’t know a whole lot of little girls who don’t like to play dress up. At the tender ages of two and six, my girls already have strong opinions about what to wear. They would think nothing of leaving the house with multiple layers of tulle, lace, and just about every color combo possible, all rolled into one fantastic outfit. But with today’s trends of mixed prints, ruffles, and even tutus as daywear, every day clothing can let them feel as much like a princess anything that comes out of the costume box.

Not that I don’t adore my state but I enjoy it the most during the summer months, that’s for sure.After returning from the… [Continue Reading]

    Easter Style
  • Most Mondays, you can find me at my children’s school, volunteering for kindergarten reading. There’s usually some instruction that goes along with whatever I’m to do that day.

    Kapow!
  • It’s Friday – hurrah! Re-entry into regular life after spring break is always tough, and it makes for a long week. Tammy is back from the Dominican Republic, and me? Well, I stayed here – but I did manage to have a little fun during our week off of school. And we’re both back with… [Continue Reading]
