FAVORITE CHILDREN’S BOOKS

FAVORITE CHILDREN’S BOOKS

Fun fact: the months between the end of student teaching & starting the school year I worked at Barnes & Noble. I learned a lot of things about book stores (including how messy & rude people are when it comes to book reshelving!) but spent a lot of lonely nights in the kids’ section. That was the least fun shift because if you have kids you’re huddled up at home in the evenings, not out buying books. I spent a lot of time flipping through picture books & making a mental list of all the ones I’d buy for my future children. Between those hours in Barnes & Noble & all the books we’ve gotten for Adelyn in the past 18 months I have quite the collection to share with you, including the ones that make Adelyn’s list!

5 CLASSES FOR DESIGN + BLOGGING

5 CLASSES FOR DESIGN + BLOGGING

The one thing I’ve loved about blogging that I never would’ve guessed was learning about design & (a little) about websites. It’s this whole new forum that I really love but have spent most of the time teaching myself. With zero background in design & only knowing about blogging through trial & error I’ve decided to get a little more advanced & take some online classes. There are so many options out there but I’ve picked out the top 5 resources that I’m either trying or are on my long list to sign up for!

A SHORT STORY

A SHORT STORY

Part of my spring wardrobe shopping involved getting new shorts. And I pretty much hit the jackpot at Loft! Mine are all pretty old & maybe a little too short? The ones at Loft are only a half inch longer but seem to make a big difference in terms of not being booty-shorts but also not looking frumpy. It’s a fine line!

They looked quite nice all folded in my drawer this weekend. Because it may be raining & I may be headed north for spring break but darnit, my closet is ready for hot weather! That’s right folks, I switched over my wardrobe & packed away all those winter clothes. Let me tell you how depressing it was to once again put away my lovely skirts & pants that for a second winter I could not wear. Darn babies & weight gain! Luckily I have these shorts to look forward to, right?
