Wednesday Wants: Sesame Street Birthday Invitations

So Ashley’s not one to brag but lately we’ve been missing in action because of moves and extra side businesses (me with PDXWildlife and Ash with Intowee).  Yes you heard it right, Ashley started a new paper line on etsy.  Well OK, the “line” right now is composed of  these cute little sesame street invites that she made for Jax’s first birthday but she’s been steadily getting orders for that in between her school work.

She has lots of other really cute stuff too (like casino themed invites and my wedding stationary for a mountain themed wedding) that we’ll feature as she puts them up.

Go Ash!

Wednesday Wants: Skip Hop Lunchbox

So flipping cute!

Dee started preschool yesterday and was so excited to go to her first day.  We owed this excitement to one new item that we added to our household last Saturday – Dee’s Zebra Skip Hop Lunchbox.  It’s no secret we’ve been missing in action on the website lately – what with the wedding and the move directly after so I wasn’t able to tell you all about how obsessed Dee has become with zoo animals.  In particular the zebra, giraffe, and “lion king”.  We went to the Oregon Zoo multiple times in the weeks before our move, as a good bye to my working grounds, as well as to satiate our toddlers constant need to have “mom, dad, dee, zoo” (translation, “mom and dad I want to go to the zoo”).

So as soon as I learned that she was goign to need a lunch box for her new preschool we immediately started looking for cute animal lunchboxes and stumbled across the Skip Hop Zoo Line.

The full line-up of adorable animals

She originally wanted the giraffe but they were sold out.  But the zebra has made her so happy and has helped to keep her pumped up for school.  In fact, she was so excited for school and using her zebra lunchbox that she carried it all the way to the car, then into the schoo,l and then jigged her way to the front desk to show it off.  She keeps asking to pack the zebra lunchbox and go to school!  I’ll let you know if he keeps her this pumped up for school as the “honeymoon” period comes to a close.

Wednesday Wants: Back to School Apps via Parents.com

I thought this was a really cool article by Parents.com.  Apps are becoming a major part of our lives and are not just for our phones, but for personal computers, tablets, notebooks, and laptops (I’m sure a few more could be named).

I thought Easy Reader was a cool one, which allows your to browse through ebooks from libraries.

There are a number of really good suggestions from recipe finders, schedule helpers, brain boosters… make sure you check them out.

Parents.com even has one that is perfect for me a jax, Playgrounds, that allows users to look through, rate, and enter playground information so others can learn about them.

Do you have any apps you love using that help you and/or your family?

Fashion Friday: Dee & Meg PDX Days

It’s Fashion Friday!

We’ve been incredibly bad about posting while I’ve been up here.  What have we been doing with our time you ask?  Well taking care of the kiddos!  And making lots of wedding preparations.  We’ve actually been cooking a ton, which we will be sharing those posts.  But somehow everything else has flown out of the window (except making onesies or children’s tees).

We finally pulled together Fashion Friday!  Hopefully we’ll be a lot better at this in the near future.  Here are Meg and Dee . . . just hanging out at the house this afternoon. :)

We’ll be posting some stuff we’ve been making for the wedding- some more DIY and some cute dress pics?

Have a great weekend!  Hope you forgive us of our tardiness!

ENJOY! ash
