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

Happy 4th!

Here are some pieces of our wonderful day!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

enjoy! ash, meg, dee, & jax

FASHION FRIDAY: Returned from China, Meg & Dee

Meg & Dee are finally back from China!  And Jax & I are up visiting them!

Hopefully you’ll see much more of us after this week.  The transition for all of us (their return and our travel up north) has resulted in us being a little lax in our postings.

Here are some pics of Meg and Dee.

Hope you have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Featured Esty Shop: Revolution46

With Father’s Day around the corner if you’re still scratching your head over the perfect gift for dad maybe you should go and check out REVOLUTION46.  Their t-shirts have a fabulous retro hipster vibe happening!  And they’ve graciously donated the above t-shirt for all those super dads in your life for our Beer & BBQ Father’s Day Giveaway (of course if you don’t win you can always just purchase one of these gems yourself).  While you’re shopping for dad you may want to check out some of their other creations – I’m a fan of the brother sets (even though I personally only have one girl).

Like these Retro Robot Big Bro & Lil’ Bro Shirts:

Love the mohawk!! These kids are hipster with a capital H!

Or the Big Brother Vintage Airplane Shirt:

Wright Brother’s eat your heart out :)

But if you were attracted to this post because of the cool super hero logo from the Father’s Day giveaway then never fear . . . other super hero shirts are here (oh no, even I recognize that as being a horrible reference . . . fail?).

These batman shirts would be so cool for a super hero themed birthday party!

If you’re in love with the Father’s Day Super Hero shirt but want it for your little man – no prob, they have that too:

I particularly like the ones with the numbers in the middle for how hold your little one is. So cute and what a good way to do a yearly photo op for a boy :)

Joe and Frannie run the shop and they’ve told us, “Everyday is a new journey when you are creating! We believe our designs are a source of immediate delight and lasting pleasure.”  We think these gifts will give so many fathers a super happy Father’s Day and heartily agree that giftees will look back fondly on receiving one of Joe and Frannie’s unique shirts.  We hope you go support custom and hand made through visiting their shop!

Fashion Friday: Little Boys Graphic Tees

It’s fashion friday!

It’s funny, both Meg and I are transitioning right.  I’m right in the middle of figuring our my graduate school acceptance and starting summer classes.  Meg just got back from her 3-4 month stay in China for her PHD work, which is why our posts have been a little light(not our usual) as of late.  I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite thing right now for Jax . . .

GRAPHIC TEES

We’ve pretty much transitioned to using only t-shirts and pants/shorts for Jax.  I find using two pieces easier with a squirmy one year old who won’t lay on his back for anything anymore . . . not even changing a diaper.  It’s a game of finding something that will occupy him while I change his diaper (or his clothes) or I’m chasing after him with a diaper, which he loves being chased.

I’ve found a lot of cute tees at target, old navy, carter’s, and of course WE MAKE THEM!  I shared with you some of our recent creations last week.  If you have a shirt that you want upcycled to a cute baby, toddler, or children’s tee, contact us at our shop or via email  for details.  Here are a few cute ones I found that I’m eying for Jax:

i actually bought this one in Target for really cheap, like $5.

This is supper cute. Love the bright neon color, which is totally popular this summer. Carter’s Tee – $10.50

ummm . . . don’t mom’s rock! of course they do. :) Carter’s Tee – $6

back of the above shirt.

So you get the idea . . . :)  We sometimes go through a couple shirts a day.  What can I say – Jax plays like a little boy, plus he’s learning to eat like a big kid.  So we are both messy often!

Have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash
