Mommy Style Summary

These outfits are from the past two weeks.  I honestly haven't gotten dressed much over the holidays - lots of leggings, baggy sweaters, & pajamas - it been wonderful! 

earrings: target, scarf: florence, sweater: gap, jeans: anthropologie, shoes: dsw

This dress is from eShakti. I've admired their pieces for awhile so I was was pretty pumped when asked to pick out a dress from their online boutique. It took me a bit to make my decision - they have tons of fun designs - but in the end I just couldn't pass up these embroidered bicycles. One thing that makes eShakti clothes extra special is that they offer easy customization (neckline, hem, & arms), so you are guaranteed to get the fit and style you are looking for.  With this dress I chose to change up the sleeves and shorten the hem to knee length. The dress lives up to all my expectations; it fits well and is very comfortable to wear. 

sweater: gymboree (boys), dress: c/o eshakti, tights: target, shoes: gift, necklace: old
fur cowl: gift/kohl's, dress: francesca's, tights: ?, shoes: gift, 
hat: wal-mart, cowl: diy/gift, sweater: thrift, jeans: gap, shoes: dsw
sweater: anthropologie, dress: hand-me-down, boots: gift/piperlime

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…

Preschool Syllabus: Dr. Seuss

Normally I'd do a Dr. Seuss unit in March around his birthday. We had to do one now though because on Saturday Big Buddy and I going on a date to a Dr. Seuss exhibit. The exhibit is only at the museum until January and I'm afraid if we don't go now we might not get the chance.

We are of course reading lots of Dr. Seuss's books. A great advatage to studying Dr. Seuss in November rather than March is that all his books were available at the library. I also found a great children's biography which is perfect for preschoolers.


 We've read it a couple times and Big Buddy loves reciting all the facts he's learned

LEARNING "TRAYS" -I rotate these, setting out about four a day from which the boy's can choose.





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…
