Happy Thanksgiving & blessing others with KINDNESS!

Happy Thanksgiving Lovelies!

We just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how thankful we are for each of you.  We know we have been blessed to get to know so many of you through this site.  We are grateful for our families, warm homes, and the blessings we experience each day.  
We wanted to highlight Matt Tribe and his website  He decided when he bought his all-you-can-eat Olive Garden Pasta Card, he would use it for good. He used it 125 times to bring warm food to others including friends and even hungry strangers on the street.  Matt, thank you for being a blessing to others.  I'm sure each of them is thankful for your generosity.  
What can each of us do to help someone this holiday season?  I guarantee not only will someone be thankful for you, but you too will be thankful for the experience.    

Have a safe & Happy Thanksgiving!

Impromptu Photo Sesh + My Favorite Slouchy Knit Beanie

Sundays are the best days. Not only because we are spiritually refueled, but because it is the one day that we get to completely enjoy each others company. For the most part, life slows down for a brief moment. 
Sometimes those moments need to be documents and out comes the camera for a mini sesh. You don't need a photographer. All you need is a camera, some natural light, and and inspiring muse. This little nugget was all the inspiration I needed in her comfy GAP sweats. I love the detail on the little jacket shoulders. 

 She is in love with "MIMI" (Minnie) right now and occasionally i'll hear her sweet little voice calling for "FIA" (Sophia the First)
 Seriously, she could store our winters food supply in those cheeks. I LOVE it! 

 The bond between mother and daughter in indescribable. I love my boys to the moon and back, but there is something, a twinkle in her eye, a feeling that rocks me to the core, a heavenly bond. I feel like she has been with me waaay longer than her little lifetime! I knew she was coming before I even saw those double lines. Having a daughter is equally gratifying as it is terrifying. My relationship with my mom has been the root of those feelings...but that is another post.
 I love anything comfy-cozy and this beanie from Target is all that + the chips! They have a great selection if you keep missing all your favorites from the boutiques. Can I just tell you that it has taking me almost 30 years to feel comfortable in a beanie? I instantly felt like I should lower my voice and start hunting or something. In other words, manly. Maybe its the whole confidence with age thing. 

 The Mr. decided to join in. Doesn't he look adorable snuggling with Minnie? ha ha 
I sure do love this man. He is a Godsend for putting up with me and all my crazy. He hates the spotlight and I love just works. 
 Let's talk about boyfriend socks. I like to call them hubby socks. Where have these been all these winters??  This is one trend I am tardy for the party for. They are my new favorite winter staple. Best of all..if you don't want to buy them I'm sure you could just go raid your significant other's drawers. Just stay away from the unmentionables. 
Don't worry. I'll never grow up and I plan on rocking latest fashions until I'm 80+. Even if that makes it UN-fashionable. I don't care what consensus says. But then again... I never have.

Baby T Moccs heart & SOLE!

Our #1 favorite footwear for our littles would have to be BabyTMoccs.  We have talked about them before on our blog, this time we are testing out their new rubber sole.   Ava has pretty much exclusively worn her platinum moccs seen here since March and they have held up perfectly with a lot of love on the soles.  As Ava started walking everywhere, I decided it's time for the sole.  We took them straight to Disneyland and she loved them.  Moccs help little growing feet bend and move in the shoe.  Ava is a tippy toe walker and she can still do that with the rubber sole.  I have never found anything that stays on her little feet better and the elastic helps hold the shoe on without being too tight. 
 Overall I would suggest adding the sole if your little is a walker or if they play outside a lot.  It's a $10 add on, but I think it will extend the life of your babe's moccs.  Ava's newest pair are gunmetal and to-die-for.  I'm also loving BBT's newest fun stripes, skulls, and flowers.  I love buying local and these shoes are made right here in Utah.  The quality is unreal and they are super soft.  
Check out their website here and I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
