Our family’s favorite things to get at Trader Joe’s, all wrapped up in memories.
Last month, when we went to my hometown on vacation, between the four of us and my sister’s family, there were seven of us. Even in the house I grew up in, that would have been a tight squeeze, but my mom has downsized since then, so it definitely wasn’t going to work. So, we decided to get a rental… View Post
All the adventures since our last update; what’s in my Instant Pot; and the books I’m into (plus one I’m not).
Mr. G and I came up with a family summer project when Pumpkin started summer break: try a new ice cream shop every week. I was trying to limit dessert to once a week (which failed miserably) and thought it would be fun to make the one dessert special, and to try places we hadn’t been yet as a family…. View Post
Pumpkin’s annual birthday interview about all of her favorite things.
When I was searching for a dress to wear to a wedding in Cabo, I went into it with two criteria: yellow, and off-the-shoulder. (You know in Steel Magnolias, when Julia Roberts’ character says pink is her signature color? Mine is yellow.) I also didn’t want to spend too much money, because I wasn’t sure how many times I would… View Post
One way to ease the stress of the holidays is to start planning early. I like to start picking up stocking stuffers as early as the summer.
In the few weeks since I shared a bit about how the girls are starting to develop their own unique styles, I have noticed that they do still have some common ground. All photos taken by The Sentimental Mama at The Moxy Tempe. They still like to wear matching T-shirts, they’ll both wear leggings, and sometimes Peanut will wear shorts, so I… View Post
Over the past few months, though, the girls have really insisted on their own personal styles, which are beginning to diverge.
For the next in my Four Ways series, we have the Lark Skirt, which I has been in my regular rotation ever since it arrived in my mailbox. When Lark Skirts launched last year and I started seeing them all over my Instagram feed, I wondered if I needed one. (The power of influencer marketing, haha!) I thought about it for… View Post
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have figured out that I have two LuLaRoe Carly dresses and I wear them on repeat. I thought it would be fun to start a new blog series, “Four Ways,” and what better way to start than with something I wear so often! (Also, FYI, I plan to include other… View Post
*Giveaway info at the end* Living in Arizona, it’s pretty amusing to see everyone get excited about Fall as soon as Labor Day comes along. It’s not technically autumn for a couple more weeks, and our temperatures will be high well into October. But it does also signal the start of football season, which inherently does feel like Fall, doesn’t… View Post
