This dress reminds me a little of the popular Heidi Merrick Dress from last season that I never got my hands on.  Love the navy/pink combo.  Would be super versatile and it is less than the HM version.


Sterling’s Minnetonkas that we ordered for fall just came and I could not be more obsessed.   I mean how freaking cute are these for little boys?  They also have a cute girls selection and they are affordable compared to other kids shoes. I found mine herešŸ™‚


Thanks to my friend Katie I demolished half a bag of this yesterday while shopping at TJ.  She recommended I try it and I loved it (so did Sterling).  It is full of flavor and a great snack!

Best part is a bag is only $1.99.


Adore this tile.


We have really been working with Sterling trying to teach him to say his prayers at night before bed and before we eat.  Love this sweet simple prayer for before meals.

    I love the dress!! But I can't help but feel a little sad about the new SHOPBOP look- I thought it was THE BEST site and the facelift is taking some getting used to. What do you think?

    I have a very similar dress from DVF and you know it was not at H&M prices. Boo! Those moccasins are adorable. Two of my friends just had boys and I feel like I need to get them! xo

    I LOVE that TJ popcorn too! It tastes like dill pickles to me (:

    I'm crazy over those little moccasins. I'm showing them to my son tonight to see if he'd wear them. He's only 5 but already has his own style. Gotta love that!
