What I've Been Wearing


This outfit was so much fun to wear. It was easy to move in (i.e. chase after the kids in) but still made me feel very feminine.

I wore this on a afternoon date to see Maleficent with Jeremy. I love twists on fairy tales so I was pretty excited to see it - it did not disappoint! Jeremy was also pleasantly surprised and said he'd even be up for watching it again.  Have you seen it? What did you thing?

  2. Wow I LOVE that patterned skirt and those gold brogues.

    I haven't seen that film yet. I've heard good things about it though. I admit I'm pretty lazy about going to the theatre to watch films.

    Thanks for popping by : )

    1. We are pretty lazy about seeing films in the theatre too - it's so expensive and not nearly as comfy as the the couch. A local theatre has a $5 and free popcorn day and I was SO anxious to see this film.

  3. going to comment on the first. Love the skirt and how it flounces out at the bottom, such a neat print. We have a theatre we love to go to where they have a huge menu , large drink menu and you can order and eat and drink during the movie.

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.





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 Knightly Affair

This past Saturday we had a joint birthday celebration for Big Buddy (6) and Mini Man (4). They have both been intrigued with knights and dragons for a while now so that's the theme we chose. 

Papa and Maca Lindsey were gracious enough to let us host the party in their backyard/secret garden, it was the perfect setting. 

In leu of traditional party favors, we outfitted the party guests with a sword, surcoat, and shield. Everyone's surcoat and shield was emblazoned with their sigil/initial.





The shields were also our party craft. They are cardboard which Jeremy cut with a laser cutter. I then hot glued and taped (double reinforcement!) ribbon on the back for handles. The kids used dot markers to decorate the shields. This worked out really well because the cardboard absorbs the ink so fast that drying is almost instantaneous.


In addition to the shields we also had a few other themed activities: a dragon catapult, sand castle building, a row of balloons for sword practice, and t…
