I wanted to quickly pop in and say Hallelujah!! School is starting for my kids next week and I’m so so excited 🙂 Brooke realized today that school is literally starting in just a few days and it got her all nervous. She’s so cute! Still working out where Blake will go since he’s still on the waitlist for preschool at a couple of spots, including the same school as Brooke. We’ll see if anything comes to fruition with that.
Also, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you totally should! Not everything you find on the blog will be published on Instagram and vice versa. The same goes for all of my social media accounts, actually. Just trying to keep it all fresh…plus I can’t keep up and syndicate them all. I need a nap just thinking about it. Most days, I need naps.
What are you doing for Labor Day? We are heading to the Hamptons because its close and we’ve never been! What are all the things to see and delicious places to eat at? I’m packing lots of healthy snacks for the in betweens, but I’d love to get your opinions. I’ve heard Ina Garten mention that Duryea’s Lobster Deck and 1770 house were good?! Thoughts? Kid-friendly spots only please 🙂
I’m trying to wrap my head around this Hurricane and all the people who are suffering. My heart hurts for everyone in Houston. If you know of a foundation that is doing good work, giving 100% of the proceeds to help victims, will you please leave a quick comment to let me know? I’m looking for ways to help, and right now I can’t give time or service (because logistically I’m here and they are there), but I can give some money. Try to see what you can do too. And if you feel like you can’t do anything, just pray. I can’t imagine having to go through something like this.
Anyways, thanks for all your continued love, help and support! You all rule.

Since I posted a couple of these photos on Instagram, the number one question has been “where did you get your vest?” and the answer is Stitch Fix! Stitch Fix is a styling service that I have been using for years. I stopped for a little once I got pregnant with Eddie, but since we’ve moved here, I’ve gotten back into it and have been loving what I’ve been receiving. (You fill out a style profile and based on that, a stylist will ship you hand-picked items. You keep what you like and send back what you don’t. Quick and painless. More info about it here.) Anyways, the vest is by a company called Skies are Blue and I cannot find it anywhere, though this one is similar. I think if you sign up for a Stitch Fix box though, you can request this item. (From what I remember, you can still do that!!)
My shirt is found here. So soft!
My leggings are from here. Yes they are maternity. Don’t judge.
My Toms are here.
And my new favorite purse that I use when I don’t have kids with me is found here. The color is Cognac.
