What A Whirlwind?!

Our lives have been so busy and I hate that my blog is being neglected! I don't want to lose your interest, but I'm having trouble trying to balance it all. So, this post is going to be all over the place in order to catch you up on what we've been up to.

First up - family getaway to King's Island and Great Wolf Lodge! The kids had so much fun and this was our first vacation together since Amelia was 4 months old!

The moment we arrived and had the kids on their first ride a huge storm hit and the kids got soaked!

I thought I'd share this photo with you in case you're ever wondering what my hair looks like after a storm!

Next up was my trip to San Francisco for the Stella & Dot Hoopla convention where the Fall line was debuted! Oh, this was the most wonderful business trip I have ever been on and I can't wait to go back next year!

Blythe - Chief Creative Officer & Jessica - Founder & CEO

My Team with Danielle (The Director of Training)

And last, but not least I came home to my kiddos and took them to get haircuts the day after I was back from Hoopla. My babies aren't babies anymore!

Have a great week and I promise to update you more consistently! I've seen some amazing Fall must haves for my wardrobe so I might share those things next time!

4th of July

4th of July for us was rainy, rainy, rainy! We were able to make it to the parade in the morning, but the fireworks were postponed to last night. The kids love the parade - mainly because candy is being thrown at them for over an hour. What more could a kid want?!

Wyatt has a new fascination with Michael Jackson and so he popped out his rendition of the moonwalk while one of the cars in the parade was playing "Billy Jean". He had quite a few people laughing and that is just what that boy loves - to entertain!

Isn't she adorable? I had to snap this photo and was able to catch up with her parents afterward to get their contact info so that I could send them some copies.

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th celebrating our freedom with family and friends!

Run, Don't Walk...

to Target!!!!

I had not been to Target in at least a month - that is a long time, you know?! Well, Joe and I were able to go today sans kids and boy did I find some amazing pieces.

Here is just a sampling - enjoy!

And I could not pass up buying this piggy bank for Amelia's room - we're going to be updating her room with the new Summer Soiree fabrics and this will fit in perfectly. Amelia immediately named her "Sally" and began filling her up with change from her stash (her stash = daddy's change drawer!). She's no dummy!

So, while you are out and about this weekend I would highly suggest stopping by Target!

Loree Alayne Photography + Nurture Event

My amazing photographer friend, Loree of Loree Alayne Photography, has teamed up with Nurture for an exciting event. Loree is the mastermind behind my family's wonderful photos.

Nurture is a fabulous new store for babies/kids age 0-6yrs. The store is located downtown on Mass Ave. The owner of Nurture also owns Silver in the City and At home in the city (two very cool stores). So here is the scoop .... Loree will be doing free photo sessions at Nurture (inside the store and at surrounding outdoor locations) on Aug 7th and 8th. To qualify for the session you have to buy an outfit from Nurture between now and Aug 7th. Your kiddos have to wear the outfit purchased from the store to the photo shoot. The photos will be displayed at the Fall Art Gallery Walk on Mass Ave from 5-9pm on Sept 4th. Several photos will be chosen as part of a display that will be in the store throughout the year. You will also receive a password to view and order pictures online from Loree's website.

So, head on over to Nurture and sign up for an unforgettable photo session with Loree.
