Coachella Shorts #brotherinnovis #brothercanada #thesearethedays #Coachellashorts

When I saw these shorts made by iCandy Handmade, I was immediately in love. In fact, I went to the fabric store the very next day to grab embellishments {I’m trying to be responsible and use up fabric I already have…I know, sad!} and purchased the pattern from Striped swallow Designs so that I could get started right away. Now let me tell you – the pattern is ridiculously easy. Which is probably why it took me ALL night to figure it out.…

{Grace and Salt} #companiesthatgiveback #payitforward #thesearethedays #adoption #T1D

I feel like nothing I say will do this story justice. My heart is so full for this family and their purpose, and I can’t wait for the day they set foot back in their home as a family of FOUR! The last two weeks I have featured companies that give back to other organizations, and while Grace and Salt is as well, they are doing so in a different way. Instead of donating their funds to another organization’s good…

A Killer #kidtrend thanks to @u_lace {with coupon code} #thesearethedays

U-Lace has solved the problem in the most fun and customizable way! This is probably my favourite design and I am desperate to get Jonah a pair of high tops so I can copy it. Ha! For now though, he’ll have to just enjoy the fun orange and…

The Shine Project #companiesthatgiveback #payitforwardfriday #thesearethedays

I’m not sure how I first heard about The Shine Project, but it was late in 2012 and shortly before I placed my first order. I was attending a work party with a white elephant gift exchange and I wanted to get something practical (stemless wine glasses) and something meaningful (bracelets from The Shine Project). I couldn’t have been more excited and in fact, even got a bit choked up while explaining to my coworkers what the bracelets represent. You…

A Boy Can Never Have Too Many Swimsuits Either #swimsuitsforboys #thesearethedays #notsponsored

Since I don’t think girls should have all the fun and because Amazon has an awesome selection for boys too,  here’s a collection for them too. After all, Jonah’s drawer is just as full {or over-full lol}. It’s a real problem you know 😉 Have fun browsing, and shopping. And same as before, if you go to buy one and it’s sold, I’m sorry. *big grin* 1|2|3|4|5|6|7 8|9|10|11|12|13|14 15|16|17|18|19|20|21 The boy section at any store is always so much more blah…

Fancy Time in Kelowna #ManteoResort #thesearethedays

After checking out of our *not fancy* hotel, we got ready to visit our cousins at their {soon to be ours} actually fancy hotel. Jonah even got his fancy manners on : They were both SO excited ~ in fact, when I asked Brooklyn after camping what her idea of a great holiday would be, she said, “A fancy hotel with a pool and a twirly slide!” Little did she know… I was smitten right away. The resort itself is…
