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.

  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]

    Kids are So Creative!
  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

    WIW to the Oscars
  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here.
