Weekend Ramblings

August Friday.

Well, here we are.  August.  How did we get here?  I can barely remember the day of the week these days, much less account for a very blurry July.  (There's a reason they don't want you driving on narcotics, Mamas.  A very good reason.)  Thank you all so much for your continued support, love, and prayers.  I meet with...
Any big plans for the weekend, Mamas?  I'm already craving Tired Hands Brewery's house-made pickles and candied bacon.  Yup - you heard correctly:  bacon candied, served with maple syrup for dipping.  Also?  Everything is locally sourced.  It's our go-to spot for Happy Hour, and low-key enough to bring the kids.  Yesssssss. Earth Day is coming up, and John Master's Organics...
WOOT WOOT Weekend, Mamas!  The last two weeks have been very, very long.  I have been inexplicably sick (with a cold!  It's just a cold!) for over two solid weeks.  This nasty virus has robbed me of motivation, sucked me of enthusiasm, and taken my patience out for a looong vacation.  Grrrrrrr. Even my kids have been attempting to cheer...

Friday Fun

Guess who is missing the beach right about now?  I mean...it's not like I don't like biting, 30 degree winds, it's just tha--  Right.  The drastic change from a freeing beach week to waaay too much "indoor family time" is driving the boys and I nuts.  NUTS!  And we're only half unpacked, so the house looks as if a...
Mamas!  I can't thank you guys enough for the video love.  It's funny, but I almost didn't post it.  I don't know...it just felt so unprofessional.  HA!  Talk about the understatement of the year.  But it was definitely real, so thank you for the support.  We'll try to do more of those.  Also, thanks to One Little Mama and...

WHOOO HOO WEEKEND

I was going to start by talking about the weather, but OMG WHY?? (It was cold, then it was warm, now it's cold blah blah who cares).   Sorry 'bout that. I do have a few fun links.  Let's talk about that instead: I collaborated with Mom.me on an article about the Mom Fashion Bloggers to watch in 2013.  This group of...
Mamas, I apologize for the light week.  I had intended to post the promised hair article, but man.  I'm wiped out.  Mike has been gone (since Sun!!) on a business trip, and in his absence, I've broken one coffee cup and two plates, lost the car keys six times, left Pax's winter coat somewhere in Easton, PA (Crayola "Experience"...

Weekend Inspiration. Yay.

Reader Emily clued us in on a little fun fact about Topshop:  they obviously love our name.  Topshop, I love that you love it, but I can't get behind your message.  Or rather, more specifically, the length of that zipper.  Just...no.  Nope.  Have fun with that.   Sorry to kick your weekend off with a crotch-shot, Mamas.  (It's hard not to...
  Mamas, my dear friend Brent has featured me on his awesome street-style blog, Urban Field Notes. Instead of a traditional interview, he fired a few questions at me while we were all having dinner last Friday night.  So I really had no idea what he was planning to say.  True to form, he's funny, in the dryest possible way....
Mamas, we are all fine.  Happily, we never even lost power.  It was a crazy night - I could actually see transformers blowing when I looked out of our window, and watched an entire block of our neighbors' houses suddenly go dark.  If you've been following us on Instagram (@shanachristine), you may have seen the picture I took of Raines...
