{one} being a mother, according to Shonda Rimes.

Even though being a mom is my full-time job, I sort of love this description of a Mom’s role by none other than Shonda Rimes. Being a mama is forever.

I am such a sucker for pom poms on hats, & this one is no exception! It is 40% off with the code FIRSTLOOK along with the rest of the site!

{three} Trader Joe’s new products.

Did you know that TJ’s posts about all of its new products on its website? I don’t know about you, but I only shop for certain things at TJ’s (quinoa, snacks & crackers, pesto, olive oil, nuts, almond butter, cornbread, frozen croissants), partly because the selection is limited for what we eat & partly because we aren’t usually happy with the produce. However, when I do go I always check the end cap that is full of new products & always manage to find something I can’t live without trying. Now I will know to check ahead of time because time is so precious when you are shopping with a toddler!

Also, don’t forget to add your DIYs to  our Pinterest Christmas Linky Party! It will be live all month!

friday I’m in love.

welcome back friday!

{one} go gold for childhood cancer awareness month.

childhood cancer awareness month

{via Charlotte’s Story}

As I mentioned last winter (here) our niece Charlotte was diagnosed with stage 3 liver cancer when she was 15 months old. Since then she has had an amazing journey & recovery from chemotherapy & surgery to respect the tumor. We are so, so thankful every day that Charlotte was such a fighter & such a brave little one. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & as much as it pains me that we even have to have a month devoted to cancer in children (seriously, it is just awful!), there aren’t nearly enough resources being used to help with research, treatment, & maybe one day, cures. Check out Kendra’s awesome post over on the Orlando City Mom’s Blog.

{two} five minute magic green sauce.

5 Minute Magic Green Sauce - use on salads, with chicken, or just as a dip! Easy ingredients like parsley, cilantro, avocado, garlic, and lime. Vegan! {via Pinch of Yum}

Have I shared this before? I feel like I have, but maybe I just like it so much that I have been sharing it with everyone! (Also, the search function on my blog is broken, so no Buenos). We don’t eat a lot of chicken around here, but if we do, I like to jazz it up a bit. I am all about simple during the week, so I buy a big box of chicken breasts (we like the Simple Truth brand – it isn’t organic, but for the occasional meal it works!) & then I can defrost in the fridge during the day, marinate for 30 minutes, & then have Aaron grill it up. This sauce though would work on a lot more than chicken! Try it & let me know what you think!

{three} fall wardrobe.

ZARA COLLECTION <3:

As fall feels like it is rapidly taking over Seattle (seriously summer, why such an abrupt end?) I am feeling ready for the transition. It seems like eons ago I was wearing sweaters & jeans, & keeping the sleeves rolled down on my button-up shirts. And you know what else I am ready for? Dressing Eloise for the fall! What is it about clothes for tiny humans that are so darn cute?
