Our Day in Instagrams

 Today was a crazy day, and I had an outfit post planned…that didn’t end up happening.  I decided instead that I would post some of the cute Instagram pictures that I took today.

Last night while I was at a meeting, and Josh took the boys to Krispy Kreme Donuts for a little treat.  They were each given a hat and McKay fell in love.  He wore it to be last night to bed and as soon as he was up, it was on his head again.  I really love 2 year olds.

 We had denist appointments today and I can’t even tell you how excited my boys get to go to the dentist.  Our dentist has video games for them to play before they go to their appointments and then when they get in there they just watch a movie and it is over….where was that when I was a kid.  I was somewhat traumatized from the dentist.

 For the first time ever, McKay actually sat and let the hygenist take pictures, clean his teeth and he let the dentist look at them.  This was a huge step for us.

 Today one of my friends and I put together a bulletin board for Green Ribbon Week.  I am on the PTA board this year and it is definitely something new for me! 

 Tonght was the first USU game of the season.  I have to be honest, I am not a huge sports fan, but I am getting better.  We have season tickets this year so I better figure it out!  I just love to be at the games though, it is definitley a “fallish” thing to do :)  I never got an outfit shot, so this will have to do as the one for today. :)

 USU is in Logan where Josh and I livedwhen we were just married (and we both graduated from USU).  We also lived there for a bit when our kids were really young.  It is always fun to come back and show our boys the things we loved about it when we lived there.  Tonight we took them to dinner at a steakhouse we loved back in the day.

 True Blue Aggie Fans!  The boys like to play football, but watching it is a whole different story.  It didn’t go so well tonight…We definitely need to come up with some better ideas for the next game.  They were bored at the end and let just say…we ended up leaving early because things were a little wild.

At the end of the day we headed to Aggie Ice Cream for the best ice cream EVER!  I am actually not a big ice cream fan, but this stuff is just amazing.  Especially Lemon Custard…YUm!

Well, thats was our day in a nutshell, have a LOVELY weekend!

Classy and Feminine

I have the cutest sisters.  This cute one lives in California and visited us last week.  We have missed her and her husband so much and it was so good to see them.  I always love how she dresses.  Her style is feminine and classy and I adore her love of all things vintage.  You can check Michelle’s blog out here.

Back when I went to visit this cute girl a few weeks ago we had so much fun touring around California and shopping.  She has just moved to a fun new city and I can’t wait to visit her again and explore her new town!

When Summer Meets Fall

I thought I would share the guest post that I did for Nautical Stripes this past week.  I have been enjoying the thought of mixing my summer pastels with the earthy tones of fall.  This is what I came up with.  

 I haven’t really done the printed pants yet, and these were my first pair.  Baby steps right?  I thought the good price from Target was worth a little investment (they have some really cute ones right now!) .  I actually really love them!!  Maybe I will get a little braver, who knows right?

 Just some fun mommy moments, my cute little 9 year old just earned his Wolf Award in Cub Scouts tonight.  He has been working on it for a year.  I am so proud of him!

And here is just a picture of the cutest 2 year old that I know.  He is so excited to be Mickey Mouse for Halloween and he found this old hat one of the boys got in Disneyland.  He is definitely in love with Mickey.

Stripety Stripes and a Favor

As much as I love my maxi dresses, I am always wondering how to mix them up a bit in how I wear them.  I have loved wearing my maxis as skirts as of late.

I am in need of some help.  Josh and I are planning a trip to New York City in a few weeks and some of your ideas of things you have loved there  I have been there once before and it was a long time ago.  Restaurants, plays, shopping you name it, I would love to hear your favorite things about New York!  Please help a girl out!!  Thanks!!!!

Mixed Up

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!!!  We had a weekend full of sports (which I know is what you all want to hear about), Palmer finally figured out football and even scored a touchdown.  His favorite however, was the time he ran across the field and leveled some poor child whos mother probably cringed when it happend (yes I am a total mess when watching these games). 

This is the last week of our summer break.  On Saturday night our family was outside as the sun went down.  Josh and Palmer had just mowed the lawn and the night smelled amazing.  One of the only things I regret from this past summer is that we didn’t spend more evenings outside.  Josh and I were way into watching Prison Break on Netflix and hurried the boys into bed as quick as we could so we could watch it really wanted to make sure that the boys got a good night’s sleep :)  In the next week I am going to try to spend as many evenings as we can outside.
