Wedding Outfit Inspiration

Clutch // Blush // Lipstick

This weekend, Will and I are headed to a wedding ... assuming Joaquin doesn't ruin our plans (JOAQUIN, IF YOU'RE LISTENING, TURN A LEEETLE TO THE RIGHT!!).  I have been mentally planning my outfit for a couple weeks, and I've pretty much settled on an autumn-ish dress. I haven't worn it in a while, but I featured it in this post.  Now that I think about it, I'll probably wear that entire outfit.

I couldn't resist a little window shopping online this week, so I put together this little wedding-inspired outfit. This would be perfect for a fall wedding, but it could also carry you into winter.  And, hello, I need that lipstick!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend.  I hope I have an amazing weekend (Joaquin, I'm looking at you!  Don't be knocking down any of our trees now, mmkay?).

Rebecca Reads: Lumberjanes


I'm back with another graphic novel recommendation!  I've been reading quite a few graphic novels lately.  They're not everyone's cup of tea, so I am never sure if I should share them all here.  If you are interested in more graphic novel or comics recommendations, please let me know!

My most recent read is Lumberjanes.  This was part of my anniversary present from Will.  He remembered that I wanted to read this.  Lumberjanes is about a group of friends at summer camp.  It's basically Girl Scout camp in comic book form, which is something I can appreciate.  The story is interspersed with snippets from the Lumberjanes Handbook, which is pretty funny.  The group of 5 friends encounter some weird things in the woods during their nightly excursions (that are totally against the rules), and the book ends on a really great cliff hanger.

I would recommend this to anyone who used to be in Girl Scouts or anyone who could use a little dose of girl power/warm and fuzzies.  The action is a little choppy, but this series is about 17 books long.  Hopefully it gets better as the story line progresses, but I still enjoyed it!

Last week, fall officially started.  And to 'celebrate' the first day of fall, I wore a very summer-y outfit.  Call this my last summer hurrah!  Since last week, the weather has been gray and rainy.  I can't say I'm complaining --  I love this kind of weather!  But, I haven't taken any more outfit pictures yet.  I'm going through my sweaters right now, so I suspect that autumnal outfits will come soon.

What are you looking forward to this fall?

Our Favorite Yogurt Snack with Dannon® Danimals®

I always have my eye out for quick kid snacks.  Although I like to cook and bake, I don't want to be in the kitchen all day long.  So, I like to do a little of both -- a little homemade snack with a little quick snack.  This pairing keeps the kids full and happy while we're on the go!

My favorite snack combo is yogurt and granola.  Now, I haven't been successful in having my kids try those two snacks together in one bowl.  They really prefer the two things separate.  So, every week or so we make a batch of these granola bites.  Paired with the Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies, it gives them fuel for all of their adventures!  Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies contain only the good stuff -- they do not contain any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.  They are also a good source of calcium and Vitamin D.  We basically use this recipe for the granola bites, but I've tweaked it over the years to suit our tastes.

Right now, Walmart has a special edition 12-pack of the Dannon® Danimals® Smoothies. They are super cute with different animals in sports outfits.  There's also a pretty neat contest going on right now.  It's called the Dannon® Danimals® and Play 60 contest.  If you find a "Golden Bongo" bottle (located in specially marked packages), you could win a Play60 Field Day for yoru school with NFL pros!  Please check the Fuel Up To Play site (down below) for more details.

We all love this snack so much, because we easily keep it at home or on the go.  When the kids pack the Dannon® Danimals® in their lunch boxes, they throw a few of the granola bites in as well.  We also freeze the yogurt to put in lunches.  That way, they stay super cold until lunch time.
