I'm so sad today. My last kiddo went off to school this morning and while I've done some serious celebrating in previous years on this day, I'm only feeling sad right now. So far I've distracted myself with a 10,000 meter row-for-relief challenge at my local Orangetheory for Hurricane Harvey relief and I decided I'd do a random post with my … [Read more...]

My baby will be starting middle school in less than two weeks. It's hard to believe he's such a big kid now. He's entering middle school and moving school systems so it's a big change for him. In honor of the change, I've been looking into getting him a new backpack. He's had the same L.L. Bean backpack for the last three years and while it's … [Read more...]

Our family has been loyal fans of Great Clips for both my husband and boys for year. We have a local Great Clips and have gotten to know the girls there over the years. I became an even bigger fan too when they introduced the Great Clips app a couple of years ago, making online check-in a breeze and cutting down on our wait times. (I can't … [Read more...]

Technically, our new Kindle Paperwhite is supposed to be a back to school product for our family. I received an email pitching me on the benefits of the Kindle as a back to school essential (there are many!) and thought, hey, this is awesome for us! It came in the mail, but as I started playing with it, I have to totally come clean and tell you … [Read more...]

OshKosh B'Gosh is just one of those iconic kids clothing companies that has been in my head for years as a high quality children's clothing company. I remember wearing Oshkosh B'Gosh myself as a child. They've been around a long time (established in 1895) and while the style has changed a lot over the years, the quality has not. You know you are … [Read more...]
