This past weekend during a quick trip to Target, we purchased Everett his first legit LEGO set. We started small, not knowing what to expect, but I for see a lot of little pieces floating around our house in the near future. I better start looking for storage solutions now!
We are planning a getaway to wine country at the end of September and I just came across this article about packing bottles into your checked luggage. Seemed to be quite appropriate given my penchant for bringing home bottles I can’t find here. Think I might pick up a few of these JetBags for the trip!
The boys head back to school next week (I shared my annual BTS little looks post earlier this week!) and I’m a little emotional. It’s hard to believe that my baby will be starting preschool. I’m packing his little backpack for the first day with all of his nap time favorites, including a monogrammed blanket from Pottery Barn Kids (love this buffalo plaid version!), his favorite lovie (how cute are these from West Elm?) and water bottle. Am I missing anything?

We celebrated Fitzie’s birthday last weekend and he received this super cute sink set. The faucet actually works! Little Tikes also has a version of this with a stove. Start ’em young!
I tend to squeeze my workouts in during my lunch break since I have access to an amazing wellness center at Des Moines University. After my grueling workouts with Missy, I’ve been applying a spritz of Scandic Skincare’s Ren/Pure Pre-serum to my face after washing off the sweat. It gives me some much-needed hydration and wakes-up my skin when it’s feeling a little dull.
It’s Iowa State Fair time people! If you are local and have kiddos, take a peek at this great round-up of kid-friendly activities. Happy corndog eating!
[can’t wait to celebrate this little guy this weekend!]
I’m totally late to this one, but I just finished binge watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon’s Prime Video. I’m sad that it is over and can’t wait for season two later this year! Highly recommend.
Target’s Hyde and Eek! Boutique is live and it is GIVING. ME. LIFE. I’m especially obsessed with these spooky kids plates, this black chipwood basket and the perfect font fabulous trick-or-treat door hanger.
One of my absolute favorite jewelry makers, Made by Mary, launched their birthstone stackers this past week and I can’t wait to wear mine! You see, I purchased them as a “to me, from me” gift for my birthday in October (yes, I’m crazy like that!) I tried them on last night and they are so good!
Two years ago, I first held you in my arms.
Today you are running, laughing and soaring.
You will always be my baby, Fitzgerald.

Up, up and away! If you are local, the annual National Balloon Classic kicks off in Indianola today and you won’t want to miss it. The past few years we’ve gotten up early, grabbed some donuts and headed to the dawn patrol flights. So beautiful!
Over a lunch break this week I snuck away to Target to see if I could find any deals on end-of-season/outdoor items. I was shocked to find two these Hearth & Hand with Magnolia galvanized lanterns on clearance. They will be perfect on our porch this fall surrounded by pumpkins and gourds.
You guys know I love a good collab, but how freakin’ cool is this Keds x Van Gogh combo?!
