School is Out, 2017!

We officially ended our school year on Thursday May 4th. After completing our 36 weeks of curriculum, we were ready to call it a year and take the next 3 months off to relax. So for the next 90 days we’ll be soaking up our favorite season, summer.

But first we need to make things “official” and officially end the 2016-2017 school year with our end of the year photos and interviews!

$10 at Target, May 2017

I almost called the $10 at Target posts quits friends  😯 . I know, you are shocked, right?! Truth be told I just have been so busy and after WEEKS of purging I was thinking the least thing I needed to do was go to Target every month and buy more stuff. But then I thought about all of the reasons I love Target and learned that this super fun link-up now has 14 hosts!!! I just couldn’t walk away from my happy place 😆 . I decided to just become more intentional with my purchases (starting next month 😉 )! I can totally do that!

Little Letters, May 2017

The second Friday of the month is mail day! It’s the day I write random snarky & sarcastic letters full of complete randomness that is bound to get me in “trouble” some how 😆 .

So now that I have laid out my disclaimer, let’s get started!

The Kids Behind The Blog, May 2017

Today is another edition of one of my favorite monthly linkups, The Kids (or in my case, girls) Behind the Blog. Every month I giggle, nod, gasp, and lol my way through these posts. I love the sweet innocence of complete and brutal honesty that the kiddos so willingly dish out.

This month questions did not disappoint. But, when you ask a 6-year-old what their favorite childhood memory is you are bound to get a confused look and a silly answer.

Summer Reading Fun

School may be officially over but that doesn’t mean the learning stops. At The Newman Family Independent Learning Center, (#lolololol) we believe that education is something that doesn’t end over summer break. Sure, it may seem like we live at the pool (because we kind of do) but I try to keep our morning activities full of hidden learning time. I love it when the girls are learning without even realizing it. Ever since my girls were itty-bitty I have been scheming up plans to continue educating them over summer break and today I want to share one of my favorites ways with you.

How I Styled It: LuLaRoe Cassie + A Giveaway

For the first Monday of summer break I have a fashion post for you. It isn’t often that I step outside of my comfort zone and post about what I’ve been wearing. But y’all are always so kind to me when I do and this isn’t just any fashion post, it is a LuLaRoe one WITH a giveaway!!!

A couple of weeks back I received the my very first Cassie skirt from Caroline Tiffany. I took one look at it and instantly thought of just how versatile this piece was going to be. Today I want to show you a couple of ways I plan to style this skirt for spring.
