Favorite Umbrellas for Kids

They love them and get true joy from using one when it rains. We get soaked helping them use them when it rains. The umbrella - the ultimate accessory for kiddos. Recently we picked out a few really cute ones. Hey, if you’re going to get soaked they might as well look super cute, right?! I still have vivid memories from my childhood of pinching myself every. single. time. I went to close my umbrella haha. BUT I still had to have it on a rainy day! Enjoy some of Bitsy’s favorite umbrella picks for kiddos below. (PS - any of these would make a fun stocking stuffer!)…

Back to School - The Label Edit

Stocking up on new labels for your children’s clothing, lunch boxes, bags, water bottles, extra set of clothing, sports and activity gear (and the list goes on and on…) is necessary this time of year. Once you’re in the thick of things in September you will be happy you have them ready-to-go. Here’s Bitsy’s edit - the brands we like for what and why…

DIY with Me and My Hubs - Pretend Shop for Kiddos!

Happy Monday! Today we are excited to start a new series on the blog. The series, “DIY with Me and My Hubs”, will be our way of sharing projects Mike and I have taken on (whether they are projects we have created or projects we have read + learned about that became inspiration for our own household needs|wants). Since Mike and I are DIYers and love to create, there have a been a lot thus far. Some live permanently in our old home, others are movable and some now live in our “new” renovated (by us!) farmhouse. Today’s project share - a mini pretend play retail shop (lemonade stand, puppet show stage, etc) for kiddos….

Back to School - The Backpack Edit

As much as I am dreading the start of school, it is time to start shopping for the little ones so parents are prepared and the kids are excited. Since back to school shopping can be overwhelming, exhausting and annoying, we've decided to share our “back to school” edits with you. We are sharing the backpacks that we feel are worthy choices. Reasons being…these are the bags that pack a good style punch (yet, not something your kiddos will get sick of easily - or you!), the bags we feel are functional for elementary schoolers to carry,

Gardening With The Littles

It’s not a secret that I have a brown thumb. Truthfully anything I attempt to plant, if I’m successful to even get it in the dirt properly, usually ends up dying. However, in our new home I have made a firm commitment to embrace it, make our new yard our own and enjoy it while doing it! Enter my girls…

New Baby

When a family member or friend have a new baby it is sometimes tricky to come up with the right care package to bring them to let them know how excited you are! Food + nourishment, something for the little one to wear or use and a hug. When that meal-train email comes through you can hop on it without stress. Through the years, I have honed in on my go-to care package - what peeps need (+ want!), a package that is not too expensive that is also easy to put together. Let’s face it - when I make others dinner normally my own family suffers and eats eggs that night! Today Im sharing my “new baby care package” jam with you. My gig is tried and true and easy…

Namaste + Little Yogis

We recently came across a show on the Amazon Prime app called Cosmic Kids Yoga. Our girls are obsessed with it. Like, ask to do yoga before breakfast obsessed. So since they’ve been consistent with this show and really enjoy doing yoga together along with Jaime, the host, we decided to gift them their own yoga mats. Lucy is obsessed with owls and Greer loves anything with birds, so we chose these mats for them…

Everybody Walk The Dinosaur

In honor of my & Other Stories Dino cardigan arrival and Greer’s dino valentine choice we thought it would be a “roar” to share some of Bitsy’s favorite dino-wear that we’ve spotted in the past few weeks. Let’s be honest, dino patterns are popping up everywhere lately so they weren’t tough to find. But we were determined to find some pieces that have that good ‘ol Bitsy swing…

1st Birthday Paintings

We struggle with finding the right, cool art for our home that not only goes with our aesthetic/decor, but has meaning and isn’t $1M! Finding something we actually WANT to look at all the time that makes us happy for any particular reason. In our old house we were building our collection as we started to build our family so naturally we had a lot of walls to fill.

Art Cart Organization!

Things were getting out of hand. Every time my girls wanted to color (not even take on a big art project) I was getting stressed. There was no system. And the clean up would be too much for us all. I already had the great coloring mat idea (you can find that here), but I needed a place for that to live along with all of their markers and other mediums. I was stressed, they were stressed and the worst part was that my kids didn’t have their creative outlet when they were home.

DIY Little Red Riding Hood + Goldilocks Costumes

This year Lucy and Greer picked their Halloween costumes on their own and truthfully at separate times (seriously, last spring!). Lucy told me she was thinking Little Red Riding Hood and Greer told me she was thinking Goldilocks

Disney Goody Bags

The first day we were in Disney we decided to leave the girls a fun little goody bag to get them pumped up for our first experience there. It totally worked and they rocked what we gave them the whole trip! Here is what our goody bags looked like:
