How did your week go? Ours was a blur of laundry, trying to recover from Pax’s bout with pinkeye last weekend…only to find out that Raines now has pinkeye. SIGH. We cancelled Pax’s birthday party on Friday…so we’re left with a house full of balloons and a just-turned six-year-old who has been playing Die, Stormtrooper since he opened this new costume for his birthday. I’m all DON’T SHARE THE HELMET WITH RAINES because seriously. That’s the last thing we need.
Don’t be surprised if I’m suddenly wearing sunglasses in all of my pictures.
These seriously cool hair-tie bracelets would make great gifts.
Speaking of gifts…Laura found this hysterical Lionel Richie mug. (Perfect for tea lovers.)
The most-shopped item from last week? These velvet skinnies.
This little faux-fur puff is a total lifesaver (it’s the only way I can easily find my keys in a jam-packed bag).
Suddenly we’re all obsessed with star prints. I’m seriously considering this dress, Gwen has me drooling over this romper, and, of course, J.Crew’s Tippi sweater and metallic star tee (both 30% off right now).
Amanda is taking over The Mom Edit’s Snapchat (@themomedit) this weekend! Amanda says, “I’ll be headed to a benefit to raise awareness for postpartum depression/anxiety, which I had with both babies. If you’ve been affected, too, consider making a donation to the National Coalition for Maternal Mental Health“.
If you’re ever wondering why we love Nordstrom so much….here are a few reasons why.
Book nerds, get excited. Amazon just released their list of the 100 best books of the year. (Thanks, Amanda!!)
The most amazing big brother ever. Wow.
From our slack channel…..Scotti has been working on gift guides, and came across this gem:
Philly families! The Center for Architecture and Design is hosting a series of family workshops every Saturday through December. Think architecture via gingerbread, designing and building an entire city (in a box), and going nuts with K’nex. Full schedule is here.
Enjoy your weekend!
