favorite zulily finds

Posted on: 7/23/15

As a busy mama of five, I find that I do more and more of our shopping online these days. I mean besides having all the kiddos to account for, I admit, I am a total hermit. So sometimes it's just nice to not have to get dressed and leave the house, you know? But also, I buy pretty much everything when it's on sale, and that means thinking ahead for birthdays and sizes the kids will need later in the year, and then keeping an eye out for deals. Zulily is one of my faves. I've found a lot of good deals for our babes over the years! Today, I'm sharing my favorite finds on zulily right now. Run, don't walk, as the sales only last a day or two!

1. little pink leather moccasins for baby
2. wild child tee
3. rubberwood safari blocks
4. our favorite striped pajamas
5. basic rain boots
6. this beautiful book for the kids

8. my favorite alphabet picture cards

beach days

Posted on: 7/13/15

The weather has been amazing lately and we've been soaking up these sunny days with lots of time at the beach. The kids will stay in the water for hours, especially Naomi! She is our water baby for sure and would be swimming until bed time if we let her. Her and Henry love snorkeling and they just got new wetsuits so they can venture out more! I think their record was 7 hours in the water last week?! Little fish! It's been hot enough recently we've taken to eating late dinners on the beach a couple times a week and then swimming during the gorgeous summer sunsets. It's really a great reminder of this amazing world we live in... that something so incredible is spread across the sky every night, for us to see. What a beautiful life this is! Or as Akemi would say "this is EPIC." Here's to many more beach days to come!

1. This sign. It's so good! I find that I have to remind myself to check my priorities every now and then and make sure I'm really giving my time and energy to the things (and people!) that matter the most. It's so easy to stress about things that aren't important and get caught up in all the daily to-do's. But I'm much happier when my days align with whats really important to me.

2. This baby. She popped her first tooth last week and now she's just taken her first steps! Growing up too fast I say!

3. How cute is this little house shape sorter? We may have to get it for Eleanor for her birthday next month.

4. All the crazy, blurry firework pictures from last weekend. I just think they're so pretty! They remind me of some of the pictures of space in the NASA gallery.

Happy weekend!
