Little People Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace So I have to admit something, I’m horrible at picking out age appropriate toys for my kids. If you have ever walked through the baby/toddler toy isle you know what I mean when I say that the toys look…. lame. It doesn’t help that my kids always gravitate towards the ‘big kid toys’ whenever we are at Target. Enter the Little People Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace: Our first encounter with this toy was at a family function. I couldn’t tear my girls away. I chalked it up to a classic case of […]
Mom Daughter Pre-Spring 2017 Fashion Haul If I’m being honest ‘hauls’ are hard for me to organize. I buy constantly….little bits and pieces all the time. Ask my husband….its bad. That being said heres the items I’ve already purchased for Spring 2017. This bag from Zara. This is the ultimate ‘statement’ bag. Its giving major Chanel vibes with the tweed and the chain strap. Theres a subtle metallic silver woven into the tweed, and the denim color is gorgeous… its just amazing. All for a mere $40. Comes in a cream and black color way as well.
An Ok Easter Basket Haul I know what you are thinking… ‘Its not even March yet Kelsey…CHILL’. Well I can’t chill… in general.. BUT I also know that stores run out of holiday stuff fast and usually don’t replenish. Most of the good stuff isn’t available for purchase online. Plus, if you are planning on doing a basket and filling eggs you are going to need even more supplies. So drop what you are doing and head to the store for your own Easter basket haul… after you finish reading this post. I think I’ve mentioned this earlier but we […]
Ok toddler style – I’m back for another OOTD. We went and visited Amys Cupcake Shoppe in downtown Hopkins, and if you are local to the Minneapolis area… GO! I can’t say enough nice stuff about this place. The cupcakes are awesome, and I’m a tough critic… I usually hate the cupcake places people rave about ( I like to be difficult to please… obviously). I swear I have the unique ability to taste preservatives/chemicals in baked goods from miles away, Amy’s passed this test with flying colors. The best part about Amy’s is this cute play area. I had […]
I can’t let Danielle have all the fun…. these are our ‘Outfits of the day’ today. Kid style can be tricky, I want my kids to look cool but I also know they are going to possibly lay down on the floor of the mall in their clothes for a good ole fashion tantrum, or smash fries into their fur vests (happened today). It may seem like an exercise in futility dressing your child in ‘outfits’ instead of just whatever is easy, but it doesn’t have to be! I don’t go to many boutiques because HELLO I have TWO to dress. It […]
Vegas Momcation time! Lets be honest, this trip would be amazing if it was just uninterrupted napping and eating. Two moms with no responsibilities in LAS VEGAS all weekend!

Christmas is over and its time to focus on the next holiday up- Valentines day. Side note- I should really take my tree down. As a kid, Valentines Day was my favorite holiday. My mom threw me these awesome after school tea parties. There would be a spread of cutesy decorated sweets and kiddy champagne in my teapot…. I felt like a celebrity. The cherry on top was always the Valentines basket. I knew the minute I heard “its two girls” at my 20 week ultrasound that this was a tradition I had to keep alive. Plus you gotta soak […]
So shopping has always been a huge part of my life because I’m a shallow person. Also because I model my life after Cher from clueless… who doesn’t want to be Cher from clueless?! Just me? oh ok… moving on.. Shopping after having kids has become more of a guilt trip than a pleasure cruise. I know I’m not alone on that. In a past life, I never batted an eyelash at four figure handbags…I’m gross and I know this isn’t endearing at all. I regularly gave away items from my closet with tags still attached (see? I’m not so […]
I don’t even know where to begin or how to feel. I don’t even know that I should write about this because keeping this blog fun and lighthearted was the number one goal. Sorry Danielle, I’m here to ruin that. I’m out a job. But not out a job. Displaced. My job is being forced to relocate. A job I’ve had for close to a decade.
