Just a Small Town Girl!

By Sarah | July 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

   Whew! How are you all surviving summer? Getting back into the triple digit heat was a bit of a shocker after our vacation, but we are doing our best to stay cool using our teeny tiny blow up pool from the Dollar Tree. Sure, we could invest in something more permanent and classy, but that…

Sailing away!

By Sarah | June 16, 2017 | 14 Comments

As I’ve mentioned before, we have several trips to the beach planned this summer, but I was so busy creating a capsule wardrobe for myself, I realized Princess needed some new clothes for our trips too! When I saw the Sailor Dress from Ellie and Mac, I knew this would be the perfect pattern to…

Kindergarten: Rocked it!

By Sarah | June 7, 2017 | 0 Comments

       Can I have a proud, gushy parent moment for a minute? School is almost over, and I’m incredibly proud of how well my boys have done. We homeschooled for preschool and Transitional Kindergarten, and the decision to attend public school for K was not one we took lightly. It was a HUGE transition…

There Be Dragons Here…

I’ve mentioned before that my son Oliver LOVES fencing. And at twice per week, its pretty ingrained in the rest of us too (even the baby knows a few moves!). So when the “knights and dragons” round 13 at Beanpop Fabrics came up for strike offs, I jumped on it, knowing I would have to…

Like Father, Like Son(s)

As much as I love my mommy-and-me matching outfits with the Princess (see examples here and here), my heart skipped a beat when Made for Mermaids offered the opportunity to create matching Daddy and me outfits for my husband and my twin boys. I love seeing how they look up to and emulate their father…

Portlanders!

You know my well documented love for comfy pants (examples here and here)- it turns out I’ve managed to pass on my obsession to my children! When New Horizons put out the testing call for the girls Portlander Pants, I knew they would be the perfect summer and winter staple for Princess! There are so many…

Suit Up For Summer: Keeping Cool in the Pool

By Sarah | May 24, 2017 | 27 Comments

    School countdown is in the single digits, the temperature is rising and the flip flops are claiming a permanent spot in the doorway: summertime must be (almost) here! And that means swimming, swimming, swimming. I’ve mentioned before that it gets mighty toasty around here (triple digits!) during the summer, so cooling off in the…

Sewing Swimwear: Supplies

By Sarah | May 23, 2017 | 17 Comments

Welcome to the first installment in my series on Sewing Swimwear: Supplies! Before last month, the total amount of swimwear I had sewn myself totaled 1- and that 1 was an ill-fated attempt at a one piece several years ago. That suit literally disintegrated after a few uses, and so I put swimwear on the…

Flat Piping Tutorial and Shark Bait!

By Sarah | May 14, 2017 | 3 Comments

      I had the opportunity to sew up a few more of the prints up for preorder from Max and Meena Fabric this weekend, and I just love how they turned out! The minute I received the fabric I knew it would be a big hit with my boys, but that I also wanted to…

En Garde!

By Sarah | May 11, 2017 | 3 Comments

My son O loves to fence. He picked it up earlier this year, and it has done amazing things for his self confidence, especially since it is the first activity he has participated in without his twin brother. When they are together, people tend to underestimate him since he is so much smaller, but when he…
