still hibernating....


yes i realize that Michigan doesn't look anything like this at the moment... "snow-pacalypse" has hit us hard snagging us 3 extra days of vacation (one of which i spent puking my guts) on account of the roads being literal ice rinks and negative double digit temps...
ugh.
i hate weather.
so up go some pics of a sunny day and green grass..
a girl can dream...

speaking of dreamy...

 tee hee..




{in other non-important news, giant earrings make me happy...}

today Soph and i talked/snort laughed about how we always discuss our amazing/genius ideas and then never do them/document them...
i smell a new years resolution coming on...
i mean for real we are a couple of blog slackers and its high time we got off our butts and sat down at the computer... on our butts.
i mean we were booted off a "fashion blogger list" because we dont blog frequently enough AND Sydney keeps stealing all our ideas straight out of our heads {clearly we came up with all her effortless goodness and she is a mind reader... or we lie. ok. we lie}
to top it all off i have hit all time lazy girl status hitting 2,000 followers on pinterest which is only possible if you are trolling pinterest 10x's per day EVERY day.. {for real EVERY pin is a re-pin i kid you not!}
its time to get off my butt 2014!
{i guess ill take sophie with me}

Can I try it on now, mom!!!?






We got the most fun package from Matilda Jane Clothing! They have such beautifully made items and Eden took one look at the cute patterns and said "Can I try it on NOW?" She had been feeling sick the past few days but sure enough a new outfit made this girl feel like jumping on the trampoline!

Matilda Jane has the most darling stuff for kids and really cute stuff for women too.
Sooo we want to share with you a $50.00 gift card so you can see for yourself.  Just drop us a comment and we will draw a name in a week! Happy New Year :)

Sisters, sisters

We may live far away from each other but we have found ways to stay close:
We send each other loving text messages...

We help each other make outfits but more importantly we tell each other what not to wear... ("That headband like that.", "That lumpy cowl neck top." or "That ugly turtle neck.")


 We motivate each other to get things done...(washing dishes, making dinner, getting out of bed in the morning or helping each other find new ways to cut onions with out crying...)

We... well, ummm... lets just say we try to answer the call by seeing who can make a more "creative" face than the other.






Our love is just so.... "special"

merry merry merry






Tops: c/o Skip n' Whistle Top, Neaklace: blogger exchange, Skirt: c/o Eshakti similar, Shoes: Nine West thrifted Similar

Brent came with me to my dance studios Christmas party... there was about one guy there for every 25 women...  He was a great sport and a handsome date. 
We have been getting all sorts of surprises ready for our little family's Christmas this year. We didn't have many traditions growing up so I feel like I am a crazy "traditions!" person. We've made gingerbread houses, drank lots of hot chocolate and decorated our tree. This Saturday we are taking Eden to see the Nutcracker and I can't even wait!! 
Dance parties turned crazy wrestle tickle fights have got to be my favorite holiday event so far... we are averaging about one every other night.

PS I am in love with my unicorn Christmas T-shirt... Skip n' Whistle you've done it again.

surviving traveling with toddlers


We all love traveling with toddlers during the holidays, right? Yeah... no. 
This April we made a big move from Utah to Texas. We spent 3 days in the car with our 1 year old and 3 year old... and we survived. I figured with all the lovely traveling that happens this time of year I would share what got us through. Here are some fun things I scored for the trip!

 Dry erase boards...
 Clip boards and crayons...
 Metal tins and magnets...
 Felt color boards...
 Pipe cleaner!!
 Microphones for backseat singing...
 Stickers and blank books...
 Distracting toys...
 Connecting links...
 Play phones...
 And the secret weapon... Light up toys!
 I stashed everything in this bag and put it behind my seat...
 We survived 3 days of travel with very few melt downs! What has worked for you? How do you keep the kiddies entertained while traveling?

Happy Thanksgiving!!

lazy procrastinator...

thrifted top, DownEast skirt, Forever 21 shoes and glasses

 i have spent nearly every waking moment sewing one thing or another and not all of it was by choice... {although we all know i would rather sew than do dishes}
i have 10 dance costumes, two easter dresses and a baptism dress to finish... i am an idiot.

i love to sew but i am just as lazy about it as i am about everything else... i simply do not appreciate a time constraint... gives me anxiety... i like to procrastinate freely

plus every seam has to be perfect... and fitting 10 dance costumes on 10 different little bodies might just send me over the edge... 
i think i better start cutting...
yesterday.

there is a trick that i use that works farely well..
i tell myself that i am going to do something way early... like a month early... and then i dont.
BUT it magically gets done on time...
a little brain trickery...
you're welcome!




so... somebody is super hunky...

 gotta love a man in uniform...
his lawn mowing uniform...

...i couldnt resist...

 {Soph that crazy face was for you}




{this skirt needed a little nip in the waist and i used my own tutorial to fix it...
you can find it HERE}
