Lovin the 'Girls Trip!'

When my little Presley was born we were ecstatic to hear Isabella would have a sister! I'm pretty much a girly girl and one of my immediate thoughts to now having 2 daughters was all the fun "girl trips" we can do throughout the years. Dreaming of a little NYC, some San Fran, Seattle and going to plays, the ballet (you get the idea). Well, they are only 3 years old and 5 months but we had our first 'girl trip' to Palm Desert with their grandma (my mom). Honestly, travelling with 2 babes is a bit exhausting but they were both very good. We did lots of shopping, bird watching, swimming and even managed to get in a few happy hours! Here is a snapshot through Instagram (love that program!). Can't wait for many more "girl trips" in our future - my 3 year old is hooked on this idea! Enjoy...

Getting kids to both look? How is it done?

All dolled up for dinner out. Thanks to my friend LD for the adorable dress!

Lots of sister lovin! My 3 year old is an amazing big sis - I'm so proud

Kids Art - LOVE this idea!

Yesterday my girlfriend was over for a playdate with the little ones. Both our oldest kids are in preschool and we are amazed at all the "art" that is coming home - and were discussing what the heck to do with it all!? I'm in the midst of creating a craft room (more on that later) and have a couple ideas for all my beautiful kid art but nothing that was too exciting until I saw this idea! Designer Jan Eleni has done the most brilliant thing. She took pictures of all the art and then shrunk it down to fit in one large frame/piece of art. It looks so fresh and is a keepsake you could pass down to your children. Now, the logistics of it all I will have to work on but this is going on that long to do list of "projects." Here's how it looks. Fantastic heh! Enjoy...
