Style Summary

SUNDAY earrings: gift, scaft: gift, dress: spain, sweater: gap, tights: target, boots: target
I bought this dress in Zaragoza, Spain, May 2010. The mix of prints caught my eye but honestly, the main reason I bought it was because I adored the boutique. It was tiny, tucked inside an ally, took up multiple floors, and was staffed by gorgeous yet friendly ladies. The whole store wouldn't fit in my suitcase so I settled for the dress. On another note, I did iron it before wearing it, we just didn't have time to take pictures before church and kids and wrinkles seem to go together. 

TUESDAY earrings: ?, collar: free cycle, cardigan: zara, shirt: ?, necklace: francesca's
skirt: anthropologie, tights: target, boots: piperlime
Several months back I hit quite the jackpot on freecycle. I was probably trying to get rid of little boy clothes or asking for dinosaurs when I saw someone was offering up three vintage fur collars! They are all gorgeous but I'm having trouble figuring out how to wear them. This is my 1st attempt. I liked how the outfit turned out but I will admit that I did feel a little silly for the first hour or so. :) If you have any other ideas on how I can wear my fur collars, I would love to hear.

THURSDAY earrings: target, shirt: h&M, sweater: gap, necklace: f21, bracelet: gift
 shorts: gap, tights: ?, shoes: thrift
This sweater is my latest bargain - Gap clearance and a 30% coupon brought the price down to $3.50! These shoes are old but where also a good deal; they are Nine West and were on clearance at Plato's Closet for $8 - I guess teenagers don't appreciate bright blue loafers. 

SATURDAY hat: target, earrings: ?, scarf: target, shirt: frock swap, sweater: vs
pant: anthropologie, shoes: target
Notice my awkward wave in the bottom corner, my neighbor had just come outside and was encouraging me to smile. Pretty sure everyone on my block thinks I'm crazy and probably a little vain - nice, but crazy...and vain.

Paint Chip Word Families

We haven't been doing a ton of school work this summer but we have tried to fit in a little reading practice everyday. We are currently working our way through Bob Books and The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading - I  highly recommend both. I saw this idea for paint chip word families on Pinterest several months ago and knew it would be one we'd have to try. I changed it up a little bit so that the the strips pulled through the word family cards.  

My supplies: large white paint chips, various colors of paint chips, sharpie, scissors, and an x-acto knife
 Step 1: Because my colored paint chips were so wide I folded and cut them in half.

Step 2: In the center of the white paint-chip, use the x-acto knife to cut two openings, at the top and bottom of the white square, the width of the color strip. 

Step 3: Use the sharpie to write letters on paint chips (a list of word families can be found here
Step 4: Pull strip through word family card 

 Step 5: Have fun readi…

A Visit to Nashville

Last weekend Jeremy and I took a quick trip to Nashville. We left the kids at home with Maca so it was a great mini vacation. We took overnight Mega buses there and back which was perfect except for one young man who needed convincing that, despite how expensive his headphones were, or how amazing his jams may be, nobody else wants to hear them at 2am. I may have not handle that situation in the most graceful manner. 
We got to Nashville Friday morning and after cleaning up a bit we went to Marche's in East Nashville for brunch and then explored the downtown. 

Friday night we had some crazy good food at an acclaimed local restaurant City House - the building is also very impressive. 

Saturday morning was my favorite part of the whole trip. Our friend Joni took us to a hiking trail where we marveled at Tennessee's beauty and enjoyed the almost 70 degree weather. 




The rest of Saturday was spent exploring Nashville neighborhoods and indulging in a bit of shopping and delicious f…

Preschool Syllabus: Farms

We started a new homeschool unit this week: farms. With all our harvest activities it seemed like a natural choice.  This last weekend we attended a neighboring town's scarecrow festival and we plan to go to a pumpkin farm with a barnyard petting zoo in the next couple weeks. We will focus on this unit for the rest of October.


During our rug times the boys and I will be singing a lot of farm related songs (Counting Coconuts has complied a great list) and make our way through the mass of books I checked out from the library.  I won't overwhelm you with a picture of them all but I will recommend a couple. For fiction Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin and Gossie by Olivier Dunrea.  Both of these books have a nice rhythm, great pictures, and sweet humor. We actually own them and several others by these authors - they are some of the most read books in our collection.  For nonfiction, 21st Century Junior Library has published several great farm-themed books.
