Summer Reading

With school around the corner, I know I’m going to miss having Myla at home so much. This summer we have been working on her reading so she is fresh when she heads back into the classroom. One of my favorite things to see is her reading to Viv.  Viv will sit there all day long and listen to her! It is so sweet.

We received these darling books from Bookroo and my girls LOVE them! They have board books and picture books available through monthly subscriptions.  They come wrapped up really cute, so opening them up is like Christmas! 8 (1 of 1)7 (1 of 1)

This month’s box came with two books.  Myla has been reading them non-stop! She even brings them on car rides with us 🙂 6 (1 of 1)

It is really sweet to see Myla improving in her reading skills.  The first time she read a book to me, I couldn’t help but tear up.  Some milestones just get me! It is amazing watching her grow up and I’m so grateful to be her mom.

Extend Your Summer Nights

I’m still in denial a bit that school is starting in a couple weeks and that summer is coming to an end 😦 My summer loving heart never wants it to leave! We have been trying to make the most of every day.  If you are like us, you may also be clinging to summer, and wanting a way to extend your summer nights!

The girls and I have spent a lot of nights this summer watching their dad play lacrosse on his summer league.  We are usually using my phone to take pictures, dance to music, chat with grandparents, etc while we “watch” 🙂 By some crazy miracle (they lost most of the games this season) they actually make it to the playoffs and clawed their way to a victory last night! If you hurry, you can catch my cute husband’s championship victory dance on my Instagram story haha (@savanahpoulsen)

Since we use my phone all day (mainly for our dance parties) and now we also use it all night, my battery just cant keep up! I’m so grateful for my portable charger from MOXYO 🙂 It carries a full charge on it and has saved us many times! By saved us, I mean made it possible for Myla to take more selfies because you know those are GOLD haha

Documenting our fun times together is something that is super important to me.  It’s nice to know I have my MOXYO charger to help! This cute case is also from MOXYO and I love it.  It is sleek and since my phone is gigantic, it’s great to have a case that doesn’t add any bulk!

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I remember the moment I realized how important my diaper bag would be and how much I instantly cared so much about it! I needed it to be so many things, but most of all, I needed it to look amazing.  It wasn’t until after I had my baby that I realized the functionality is just as important. I wish I had this bag and clutch from Seaport Stitches when I started my mom journey!  I have been obsessing over it from afar for a long time and now I get compliments on it daily.  It definitely checks the “looks amazing” box! The best part about it, though, it also checks the functionality box! Some of my favorite features include the zipper across the top (keeping those sweet baby hands from emptying it all day) the pockets lining the inside, the large outside pockets, and best of all-> the convertible strap.  It can be a backpack or a messenger bag style just by adjusting the clips. I never knew I could be so in love with a backpack!

My other new obsession is my diaper clutch.  I almost can’t believe how much I love it.  My favorite part (other than how stinkin cute it is) is the built in pocket for wipes! No more carrying around a separate wipe container, and diapers, and a wallet, and your phone, and your lipgloss, and your keys…goodness! This beauty fits IT ALL in one darling little package.  I carry it with me all the time and when I also need toys, food, books, blankets (I could go on and on) I just throw it in my diaper bag as well.  Honestly, it has made those quick trips to the store, school, or friend’s house so much nicer! They come in lots of cute designs too.  Love love love! Make sure you check out these bags, they sell out crazy fast.  I can totally see why!

Hope you enjoy your day! XO Thank you to Seaport Stitches for sponsoring this post! Also, thank you to Stayc Smart Photography for the photos.  Check her out on instagram @staycsmartphotography
