Back-To-School

Homeschool requires some prep --we're on a kids' study nook & refurbished laptops from eBay, perfect for remote learning & gaming.
A huge thank you to eBay and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Well...school starts in a couple of weeks, and we're trying to get ready. We're re-arranging furniture and scoping out places to create little study nooks. I have zero illusions that two active boys will be able to sit in one spot staring at a computer screen all day,...
As with all things back-to-school, we're stocking up on kid-friendly recipes that aren't sandwiches. Yes to packing lunch boxes & bento boxes full of YUM.
Hey friends, it's been a minute, eh? Lana's had the month of August off from school, and we've spent the last week road-tripping through Northern California and the Nevada desert, visiting all six of her grandparents and her three great-grandparents. We logged almost 1k miles, just the two of us, and I'm delighted (and a little shocked, honestly) to...
Once upon a time, I was able to — successfully — pick out clothes for my kids. I would simply buy whatever struck my fancy, and then wrestle them into it. Done. Admittedly, that phase was pretty short-lived. Both of my kids have pretty strong ideas of what they like to wear, and I know they're not the only...
We're back-to-school supplies crazy over here at TME & today it's finding a bento box & kids' lunch ideas. 5 of these offer Prime shipping — holla!
This school year will be the first that I officially join the glamorous club of lunchbox-packing moms. And I'm not gonna lie: while I've prepared a thousand toddler hot lunches and packed a thousand toddler snackboxes -- which is something I actually really enjoy...like, enough that I regularly document it on Instagram -- as soon and we entered into...
As the school year approaches, an academic calendar is kind of exactly what we need. Blank, printable & fun for the whole fam — we're on it!
Friends. You may remember the calendar that my friend and I designed and released earlier this year from the post where I shared all about it. Well, a few people suggested a school-year calendar version, and I thought what a fabulous idea! Then we made it happen. And by we, I mean me, because it was really last minute...
Just in time for back-to-school & fall, our 3rd kids' capsule wardrobe of the season is gender-neutral, bright & fun. Styled for him, her or them.
I'm back with our third kids' capsule wardrobe of the season. Just in time for back-to-school and fall. Some of you guys noticed that we try to make our capsule wardrobes gender-neutral and this one is no different. With bright colors and fun graphics, there's something for every kid here. (I personally wish this sweatsuit came in my size.)  Top...
Little ones starting kindergarten, fashion-concious kids & "cool" tweens = back-to-school shopping & sales. We're on it & Macy's is nailing it. #SchoolDaze
This post was sponsored by Macy’s and Shopstyle. It's back to school time!! And this year Greenlea is going into Kindergarten. It's kind of hard to believe that she's actually that old already. But when I saw these pictures, some of them caught me completely off guard. She looks so old it actually took my breath away. Is that...
A kids' capsule wardobe full of neutral colors? On it. Our kids' clothes picks work for anyone. Boy, girl or gender non-conforming. Just in time for school.
Our capsule wardrobe series continues with an easy mix-and-match set for boys. (If you missed the girls' capsule wardrobe, you can find it here.) Capsule wardrobes make getting dressed in the morning easier—and we're all about anything that makes mornings easier. This one is all blue, black and grey, and lots of these pieces (actually all of them, really)...
With picky kids in mind, we're eyeing a bright girls' capsule wardrobe that's fun & not too sparkly. Yellow, leopard & neutrals. All heart eyes, right here.
Back to school is one of my favorite times of the year. This year is extra special because Greenlea is going into Kindergarten! I'm so excited for her, but I can't believe she's growing so fast at the same time. Time flies, you guys. I've loved putting together capsule wardrobes for the kiddos every year since G was a...
It's that time — babies are heading off the college! We're eyeing dorm room decor ideas & design inspo to give them an organized cozy space. Check it out.
Gone are the days of showing up to college with a couple of suitcases, a comforter and some strings of Christmas lights to hang over the bed. Kids today are getting super-creative with their college abodes, increasingly moreso each year. So, I figured I'd get myself up-to-speed with this trend, and help all you mamas out there who have...
