Style Summary

Both this dress and jacket were happy thrift finds - together they cost less than $16. 

SUNDAY earrings: target, jacket: thrift, dress: vintage/thrift,  shoes:dsw, 

This skirt is also a happy thrift find. I got it just a couple weeks ago and I plan to have my mother-in-law shorten it a little bit (it's even longer than it looks - I rolled it up at the waist) but when Jeremy suggested a last minute movie date I couldn't resist the urge to wear it.

MONDAY earrings: target, sweater: aw, skirt: thrift, shoes: frock swap

This dress is from college. I haven't worn it in a couple years. I just recently rediscovered it while  unpacking summer clothes. I'm not sure I'll keep it; the spaghetti strap bodice is not quite my style anymore, but I did really like how it looked with this cropped sweater.

TUESDAY hat: charming charlie, sweater: old navy, necklace: thrift/diy,
dress worn as a skirt: maurices (very old), shoes: dsw

 I rarely wear outfits without color and always feel a little edgy/tough when I do. Seeing these pictures tell me that it's all in my head though - I don't think I have the ability to actually look edgy or tough. 

WEDNESDAY earrings & shirt: target, pants: gap, shoes: frock swap, bracelet: gift

This skirt was given to me by a dear friend and is probably my favorite hand-me-down ever. Sadly, while wearing it I discovered a tiny hole. Debating on whether or not to keep wearing it...it's not in a super noticeable or potentially awkward place so I'm thinking, yes!

SATURDAY earrings: target, shirt: old navy, belt: thrift, skirt: hand-me-down
shoes: florence

    1. Thanks Amber! Complete transparincy though, there are days like today where I'm not at all put together - messy hair, no make-up, sweatpants and a t-shit was today's look. I think "messy days" make getting dressed up all the more fun though.

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.
