Costumes for Twins Plus One

Thursday, September 21, 2017

I know at some point the twins will want to choose their own Halloween costumes but until then I am determined to have some fun deciding for them!

Last year I convinced Blair to be a donut (instead of a princess or butterfly) and the twins were happy being milk and coffee...

This year I have a couple ideas but would love some suggestions from you guys! Let me know if you think of anything cute in the comments below!

Cal Poly Love

Real is hard to find time to blog! I know it seems silly for a stay at home mom to say that but between Blair's homework, sports, my gym time, errands, chores etc. the day gets away from me! And sometimes I just can't muster up the energy to do it once they are all in bed. So, I'm not quitting on you guys...just trying to figure out how to balance it all!

So far Blair has been off to a great start at school. She loves her teacher, enjoys the routine of school, and always looks forward to pizza day. :)

Last week some friends went to our old college town (San Luis Obispo) and brought the twins back some school spirit wear. The weather is finally cooling off here so we were able to enjoy our new gear while we grabbed some donuts on Saturday morning.

You can tell that Cal is really itching to move on his own and he's so so close! Everly is still content pushing her walker around the house and being held by Daddy. :)

Cal's jeans: AG (from Nordstrom anniversary sale) girl's jeans but you wouldn't know!
Twins' shoes: freshly picked
Evie's bow: Little Elle Boutique
Blair's Jeans: Hudson (Nordstrom anniversary sale)

Both jeans are sold out but check out @tattrdthreads on Instagram...she has the CUTEST worn jeans for littles!

Thirty Five and Lime

It's all about teamwork over here (sometimes)! Blair is training Everly to feed her snacks while she "reads" her stories. Seeing their relationship grow has been so fun and makes my mama heart burst.

Blair always gets super giddy when she gets to match Everly so these outfits were a huge win! They are made out of the softest organic fabric and the print is so girly.

Hallmark Baby

The heat wave has FINALLY gone away here and I'm happy to report we are wearing things like sleeves and pants! Fall is my favorite season and I can't wait for cooler temperatures...and let's be real...pumpkin spice flavored everything! I'm less excited about fantasy football starting again but every rose has a thorn. ;)

I love coordinating the kids and these outfits by Hallmark Baby are just the cutest! The clothes are definitely high quality and there is a lot of attention to detail such as pockets, colored snaps, and extra bows. The material is soft and the prints are darling. These pieces transition perfectly into fall and I know we will get a lot of good use out of them.


shoes: freshly picked

headband: cammi and co

Thanks Hallmark Baby for the coordinating outfits...we love them! 

Back to School

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Blair has had a great first week of school (minus the 100+ degree weather) and I'm so proud of her. She decided that she wants to be a hair stylist when she grows up instead of a butterfly in the Disneyland parade. Once I told her that the people in the parade don't actually live at Disneyland she was horrified and decided a hair stylist would be a better choice. That girl.

So far she loves her teacher and hasn't had any melt downs at school. I love hearing about her day and who "stayed on green" and who had to "clip down." She gives me a very precise report on who did what and it cracks me up. She's been singing songs that she's learning and teaching the babies all sorts of new things.

I can't wait to watch you grow this year, Blair, but please slow down!

Saranoni Blanket Giveaway

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

We're a blankie loving family over here. I still have mine (what's left of it) in the garage. It pretty much looks like a rope that you would climb out of a burning building on but I still love it all the same. Blair attached to a sleep sack  that she used to sleep in as a baby. It is the most disgusting thing you have ever seen...a lovely shade of grey even though it was pink when we first purchased it. 

I've been pushing a blankie on Evie and Cal because it's nice to be able to take it to a new place and have them feel comforted regardless of where they are. They currently have muslin blankets that they like but with the colder months approaching I thought they would enjoy the Saranoni blankets to cuddle with. 

These blankets are the ultimate soft luxury blankets and are beautiful! They are a great size and the babies love them. Saranoni is giving away TWO free blankets to two lucky winners! To enter head over to my Instagram account (@natyouraveragegirl) to enter for a chance to win your own! Winners will be chosen in 48 hours. Good luck! 

Back-to-school Teacher Gift

Monday, August 21, 2017

As a former teacher I have had my fair share of good (and bad) teacher gifts. With Blair starting her first day of Kindergarten in a week I decided I better get on it with a back-to-school gift for her new teacher!

First of all you can't go wrong with a Starbucks or Target card. I'd probably say that those types of gifts (though far and few between) were my favorite. Don't get me wrong...I loved the endless supply of stuffed animals (why?!) my students gave me but coffee is where it's at!

With that said this year I'm going to try and mix in some sentimental with some necessity. I printed out a cute chalkboard print with some sappy sweet phrase from my old chalk shop and I plan on grabbing a starbucks card to go with it. I also saw the cutest pencil sugar cookies and plan on giving those a whirl. Never hurts to get on the teacher's good side early, right?!

What are your plans for spoiling your kids' teacher this year? I hope this helped you out! Happy Monday! :)
