What I've Been Wearing

Only one outfit this week; luckily, it's one I thoroughly enjoyed! This dress is from eShakti and a treat to wear and very comfortable. This is the third time I worn it. First, I paired it with a cropped sweater and then later I wore it to my sister's graduation party. Both times it held up very well to lots of movement: sitting, holding kids, etc.

Small Graces and a Smattering of Our July 4th

It's been a busy last couple weeks...I guess I almost always say that, huh? Life with kids is just plain hectic, even when we don't have plans it feels like we never really stop. I've been especially thankful for the few naps I've gotten in recently.  Even twenty minutes can make such difference.

Our front porch has become quite the hang out spot for our family this summer. In the afternoon and evenings it's full neighbor kids. In the morning, however, it's peaceful and the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee. Jeremy and I try to sneak out there before the kids are awake but sometimes they end up joining us. 

a mug of milk, not coffee :) 

What I've Been Wearing

Two dresses layered over each other is a bit of an unconventional pairing; however, it was actually quite comfortable and I enjoyed the over all look. The top dress is a vintage shift, I love the stripes and the fit; but it's a bit short for anything other than a date. The bottom dress is a thin strap pleated dress I wore in a wedding last October. Paired together, they provide the perfect amount of coverage for church.

The rest of the week, I was obviously,  feeling a bit patriotic.  :) 

Pipe Cleaner Fireworks

Happy Independence Day! Our family is super pumped for all the festivities.  The kids are particularly excited about the fireworks! We've been googling videos on how exactly fireworks works and decided to craft some of our own.

Supplies: pipe cleaners, scissors, construction paper, tempera paint, spoons, & glitter.
