spring break

06 April 2018

1. I hope no one tells my kids that other people actually travel and do fun things during spring break because we've done a whole lotta nada this week and it's been just fine. I've got the, "remember our Disney trip?" all ready to go in my back pocket if any of the kids ask (they won't, I don't think) and the weather has been wonderful and the pollen has finally floated up north so ... staycation or bust.

2. As mentioned before, my mom always finds the best toys for the kids and these are no exception. I'm proud of us for keeping them in their assigned container for well over a year which is pathetic but also ... miraculous.



3. I read and loved two books recently! I feel like I get to about the 76% point (thank you Kindle app) of a lot of books when I just can't bear another paragraph but I finished The Queen of Hearts and Now That You Mention It this week and if you're looking for mostly vapid beach ready bookage - you might like them too!

4. I've been up a lot with sick kids (the mercifully swift 24 hour bug that has to hit everyone on a completely different day) and have had some extra late night scroll time on my hands in between wash after wash and happened upon what looks suspiciously like a knockoff of Article's Sven couch? Right? I (whispers) don't hate it. One bit.

5. Long overdue! But, I had to thank you for all of your sweet comments + emails about my grandma. Her funeral was sad but a great celebration of her life and I appreciated all of your kind and thoughtful messages.

6. I've been reading and seeing how much my favorite fashion bloggers (although I believe the term these days is influencer) love these high waisted jeans and this is the first I'm seeing them on sale PLUS an additional 30% off. I'm tempted to try them on although I think I'm the last person in the world to hop on the high rise train. And I don't think they're trendy but I love finding t-shirts with slightly longer short sleeves (Everlane makes a good one!) and LOVE this one. I'm sure they won't but I'd love if they came out with a whole potpourri of colors to choose from.

7. Alright, we've got a fun weekend ahead hanging with Simon's college friends who are in town and rented a house with a pool along with breathing a sigh of relief that we finally finished the last of the house projects before we list said house (we'll worry about someone actually buying it -- on a later date). Yee haw.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and are enjoying the Easter season!!

  2. Those Madewell jeans are all I buy now. They keep their shape and are worth the money.
