(Last Minute) Lumberjack 1st Birthday Party

Poor Ford. He is totally getting the “third kid” treatment. I knew his birthday was coming, knew I should probably do something for it, but it wasn’t until two days before when I realized that if I didn’t use Amazon Prime to order things that day, that I would have to actually take my three rambunctious boys into a store, that I actually put something together. I’m not sure how actually “themed” this party can be called, but I was inspired by all the amazingly cute Lumberjack parties on Pinterest. Feel free to note the lack of decorations/games/silly printables and notice the most important thing- everyone’s happy. You can’t beat a birthday party that Mom didn’t break her back trying to plan and the kid is totally happy. He’s a baby anyways, all he cares about is that cupcake. Happy Birthday Ford!DSC_7000DSC_7074

He’s gotten so big! I can’t believe it and I see him every single day. Onto the food!


Thank goodness for Publix and their delicious always ready desserts. Once again, (if you’re interested), I got the bow-tie, the little trees, and the buffalo plaid pants all off of Amazon Prime just two days before.


I try not to brag on my kids much, but this kids adorable. Look at those eyes.



Can you tell he liked it? We had some Publix cake for everyone else, and presents for the little birthday boy.


Happy Birthday Ford!

The New Magnolia Home Kids Line

Where was I when the Magnolia Kids Line was released? Here I’ve been drooling over the whole Magnolia Line and somehow I missed that Joanna designed an entire line of kids furniture! I’ve been swooning over it all week and now I’m ready to re-decorate all my kids rooms (which is great since I haven’t even posted their current room design yet), now if only she made a few cribs to go with it or some bunk beds! I linked straight to each piece on the picture so you can just click right on the item to take you to it’s site, or check below the picture to get the links too.

Back To School With Mini Boden

This post was sponsored by Boden as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Boden (16)

Our neighborhood has been buzzing lately with kids coming back in town and everyone getting ready for back-to-school season! My favorite part of starting back at school was always back-to-school clothes shopping. It was so fun to get to pick out new clothes and outfits (with my Moms help, of course). One of my favorite places to shop for my own boys back to school season clothes is Boden. Their Mini Boden line has tons of clothes that are stylish but also comfy. I let Sawyer help me shop online for what he thought looked cool, and it was easy to let him pick what he wanted from their site since everything in their Mini Boden collection is kid-friendly: easy to wash, durable, no tags, and super comfy, plus they offer worry-free shipping and returns on purchases over $49. You know when you see those kids who just look super-cool? Their probably wearing Mini Boden. If you have a daughter, you seriously need to check out their adorable spins on classic kids clothes like rabbit embroidered skirts and fun patterned swing dresses. I can’t even browse their girls section because it makes me want a daughter so bad! I’ll just spoil my friends daughters for now, but at least they have so many cool clothes to offer for the boys too! Bright, fun shirts, handsome button-ups, cool shoes, and a huge selection of jeans make it a one stop shop for finding stylish boy clothes, which all moms of boys know is not always easy.

Some of their best selling items for Back to School season are their t-shirts. Sawyer loves how comfy t-shirts are but hates when they are scratchy or have tags. He hasn’t complain a single day that he had this cute raglan tee on. I love how bright and fun it looks and goes great with his new jeans and shoes. Their jean collection is super durable and really comfy (they feel as soft as my jeggings). He’s wearing the slim fit, and they also carry straight leg, skinny, and cargos all in cool-looking washes. One of my favorite things is that even though he’s wearing jeans (which I prefer since they stand up to all his outdoor exploring) they are soft enough that he can move and play without feeling restricted.

Are those high-tops not the cutest? Sawyer is ready to go for back to school! Even though we are doing pre-school at home this year, we have tons of fun trips and outdoor learning planned. The other day he wore these clothes out on our playground and got super dirty, and they washed great and look as good as new- even the Georgia red clay stains came out with one wash and no stain remover (for those who aren’t familiar with the dirt down here, it is impossible to get out and has ruined wayyy too many of my kids clothes!).
