This & That!

A little this and that for your Tuesday!  Starting with…

…a boy and his dog 🙂 .  Poppy is super funny.  She’s the happiest, most energetic, let me play with you and run around like crazy dog who doesn’t want to stop and cuddle…but she will cuddle up with Smith.

Last week, Erika was on a trip, so I had Britt on Thursday.  We met up with Brooke and Libby to see Dora the Explorer at the movie theater.  Madeley was SO pumped!  I thought the movie held everyone’s attention, no one got restless during it and it was pretty cute.  I mean…I don’t necessarily need to see it again, but it was better than some other kid movies I’ve sat through.  After the movie, the girls took naps…

…Madeley loves to nap in the guestroom.  She calls it “her cozy spot”.  And then this sweet girl…

…woke right up when I took her pic (I was up there to wake her anyway).  They were so sweet all day long!!

Awe!  Look at my sweet girls as they’re heading to school one morning this week!

I’ve been really loving all of the Old Navy things we found for school this year.  When I did my Back to School Everything Post, I told you that Old Navy really made me happy this year, but I feel like it should be repeated 🙂 .  The other morning, they laughed because by accident, they both got dressed in the same dress but different pattern, so I thought I’d take a pic 🙂 .  Here are the details for those of you who are diggin’ it too…


A quick selfie with our “odds” 🙂 .

Friday mornings are just way more fun than other mornings, right?!

Again, I’m lovin’ all of the “fall” colors 🙂 .  Here are the details for these outfits:


Ashby really knows how to pose for a picture.  Hahaha!

I’ve been enjoying all of the one on one time with this cutie pie!  She told me to take a pic because “my hair looks so good!”.

Her favorite part of going to Trader Joe’s?  Coloring while mom checks out!

Speaking of Trader Joe’s…

…have you bought the cauliflower frittata things yet?!  Um, they’re amazing!  You can see all of my current Trader Joe’s Faves HERE.

Saturday night, the weather was so nice here, so my little fam headed to The Yard on our square.  It’s this super fun indoor/outdoor restaurant.  The little three were playing for a bit and Andrew and I had the BEST time chatting with our sweet big girl.

Last but not least, have you been keeping up with Erika this week?  She’s recapping her trip to Walt Disney World last week where it was all sorts of spooktacular!  Mix and Match Travel Agency is so excited about all of the fall WDW trips we have coming up!!  If you would like to discuss a WDW vacation (or any other vacation!) with us, please email us today at!

That’s it for this Tuesday!  I’ll see you all back here tomorrow for WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY!

    Did Ashby’s feet grow three sizes over the summer?! She looks so “big girl” in these pictures AND her feet look crazy long! And WHY didn’t ask you to grab me ten boxes of the frittatas?

    I would nap in that guest room, too!!!! haha I don’t blame Madeley one bit because it looks so comfortable!

    Your oldest looks so grown up! And lovely! Halloween at Disney is our favorite. Our daughter is in college this year, so we have to wait until Thanksgiving to go. But anytime at Disney is the best time(:

    I’m with Madeley. When I’m having a good hair day, it needs to be documented.

  • Narci August 27, 2019 at 6:17 am

    Aw, that pic of Smith and Poppy is so sweet! Love that!

    Cute post and adorable family! Question – where is your duvet and duvet cover from in your guest room? It looks SUPER cozy and we are looking for something similar for our guest room. Thanks!

      Pottery Barn! It’s not recent though…the douvet is about 6 years old, but the blankets and such are 1 to 2 years old.

    Thanks for the update! I hope everyone is having a great week at school!

    When is book review day? I thought it was today? 🤷🏼‍♀️

    So jealous that your girls wear dresses! My 6 year old refuses! I am not giving up hope as last January she finally decided she wanted to wear jeans for the first time ever and now loves jeans (as long as they are the skinny, stretchy, ballerina type from Old Navy). So maybe the same will happen with dresses 🙂

    And Old Navy has the cutest clothes this year! I bought all my kids back to school clothes from there! Can’t wait to see their winter stuff!

    So fun! I love that Erika went to WDW!! So magical!

    Where is the blanket from that Brit is sleeping with? It looks so comfy and it’s super cute.

      It’s an oldie but goodie from Target 🙂 .

    Kensington is just SO beautiful! That last pic of her—she looks like a little model.

    Happy Pumpkin Spice Latte Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Old navy also made me happy this year. We got most of our back to school clothes there.

  • Jen August 27, 2019 at 12:31 pm

    Kensington’s hair is so blonde! She’s beautiful!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick August 27, 2019 at 1:18 pm

    Madeley looks so comfy in that cozy bed! I’d want to nap in there too!
