Current Favorites (Happy Weekend!)

I had something fun to share today, but it didn't work out just yet, so...shameless filler post! I thought I'd share a few things that I've been obsessing over lately!

I love them! I'll take navy and tan and...all the other colors.


Anything in Mint. I think we're all obsessing over mint this season. I can't get enough!


Paige and I have been reading them from the library and they are so cute. My favorite is "The Heart and the Bottle". (Prepare to cry!) "Stuck" is another cute one.
"Everything At Once" by Lenka
The other day I played this song and Paige said: "I kind of don't like when you play it so much, Mama. Kind of like how you don't like it when I say stuff over and over again?". (BUSTED!) Sorry, Paige. Mommy gets to have a double-standard every once in a while. :o)

Wearing my hair au naturel. 
(Sorry-couldn't find this photo's source!)
I actually love my hair most when it's air-dryed and unstyled. It's not conventional, but, you know...I think it's pretty!

There you go! Some fun things to check out and try. What are you obsessing over this month?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, everyone! And I hope you're getting some great summer weather to bbq in. It's been cold and rainy here, which is totally unlike our area in June! It kind of feels like Christmas!

Love you,
Disney



P.S. On a totally random note, one dear reader expressed some concern on the last post that I slightly embellish Paige's statements. In case anyone else was thinking that, I just want to clear up that I haven't ever done that. I would never take away from the cuteness by adding my own words! :o) Paige talks a little differently because she's around adults and older kids a lot, that's all. ...Just so you know. :o)

But she's still all kid! See?
(As I'm writing this:)

  3. Love everything about this post ~ especially the hair au naturel! With three boys, crazy schedules and a new puppy, that is the only way my hair is!
    Appalling that someone would question you snd your daughter's abilities. Perhaps if more people spent such quality time with their kids as you do with Paige, we'd have a much smarter and happier younger generation! Hugs!

  4. My mother always taught me that if I didn't have something nice to say I shouldn't say it - well, I guess "anonymous" didn't spend the quality time we did with our parents. My 5 year old daughter has quite an expanded vacabulary like Paige's due to my choice to speak to her as an adult since she was little. Paige is adorable and I hope the comment didn't dampen yours or Paige's spirits. Keep up the wonderful posts (both of you) because I love reading them and looking at the cute crafts my daughter and I can try. Keep making us smile. :) Laura and Madelin

  6. I'm loving that mints a popular color, too! It's one of my favorite colors to wear :) I also wanted to comment re: your little one. People have said the same to my sister. My niece is five and talks like she's fourteen most days. But she is definitely a kid. Just last night, my niece asked me if she could run in the yard, for no reason. My niece may talk like a young-adult most days, but she's definitely still a kid :) Have a great weekend!

  7. Ha, I have a 5-year-old boy and know how grown-up they can sound sometimes. They learn all the big words from their mamas. I'll have to look for those books at our library. I'm always looking for something new and cute to read the boys.

  10. Oh I believe you, I work with Kindergarten and I hear their conversations all the time, little kids say the funniest things that's why I love them so much. =) Love the salt water sandals!

  11. Love Saltwater sandals. I have a pair, and so do both of my girls. Perfect sandals!

  12. Hope you have a great weekend too! My daughter is mostly around adults and older kids too. I love hearing the things she's thinking about.

  13. Seriously what went through my head upon seeing your post: "SALTWATER SANDALS?!?!" I had no idea they still existed, my last pair was purchased when I was 9 (purple, btw). My grandmother used to buy me a new pair every summer, so when I got them, I knew it was the beginning of a great warm season. I am so looking for these now. :)

  14. My kids are so observant and they use "big" word often because they hear their parents using them. Paige is adorable and it is evident that she is creative and so smart. I love your blog, thanks for sharing and making my day brighter.

  17. Hi-I have to say, I'm still looking forward to the something fun, but I'm glad you had this filler postǃ I had never heard of Lenka, but after reading about the song that got you busted (hehe), I checked her out and ended buying the whole cdǃ I'm really enjoying it- thanksǃ

  18. Rachkatt: Cool! I'm glad I helped you find a new fave. I guess I should mention that I've only heard 2 of her songs, so I'm not sure about all the content, but, hopefully it's good!

  19. I am the daughter of a pastor and grown up around adults. A pastor's family is a completely different animal than most people think. So, I would totally ignore the comment and enjoy the comments from your daughter. :) I really enjoy your posts (and Paige's too!) The Lord bless you!!

  20. Disney, Where do you get the, "Saltwater Sandals?" I work with Pre-Kindergarteners and have to wear sandals that have straps on the back, those are adorable. Like I said I work with Pre-Kindergarteners 4-5 year olds. It always amazes me the vocabulary my children have. If you take the time to speak to children without baby talking, they will have a more grown-up vocabulary.

  21. Anon: zappos.com I think is one place they sell them, but ty googling "saltwater sandals", there are several stores that carry them.

  22. Quilts and swimsuits! I want to make a ton of them this Summer but right now we're in the middle of a move and I don't have my sewing machine. I'll be so happy to see her again!

  23. I'm delighted to have found your blog! It's full of the most wonderful things that this life can offer. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  24. I love mint too! Especially with coral :)

  25. Love the saltwaters! My 4 year old also talks "much older" than her age. Its the result of being around adults, talking early, and the fact that I talk nonstop with her because some days she's the only person I speak with and I would lose it if I didn't chat it up with someone. ;) ~Robin~

  26. I was thinking the same thing when that person said something, my three year old is an extremely eloquent little guy, so are his friends... I think it comes from having involved parents(maybe even the lack of tv

  27. I always had white saltwaters growing up and bought a pair of navy when I was in college. Worn ironically, of course. Pac NW grunge?

  28. Hi Disney!! I just discovered your blog and am enjoying catching up on all of your previous posts!!!

    Many well wishes from Australia,
    Tani:)

    P.S. Love the saltwater sandals!!!

  29. I have been following for ages but rarely ever comment ( I am totally guilty of laziness, sorry) I love the sandals, the music and mint. And yes I too have a 4 year old and people will comment that she speaks like an older child. I think it is because I am the person she talks to the most. Even her pre school teacher talks to the whole class like short grown ups and I have seen all of them getting so much better at articulating ideas

  31. I think it's adorable that Paige uses big words -- I did that when I was a kid, because my dad always used big words. :)

  32. Big thumbs up to Miss Paige for utilizing her vocabulary! Woo Hoo! My little girl uses big words too, and she (and you too, Paige) will appreciate that you have so many words at your disposal to articulate your brilliant self when you're older.

  33. some people are crazy! Well, I absolutely LOVE Saltwater Sandals!! In fact, I blogged about their gender neutrality and high quality on my blog last month :) Love your blog, keep it up please!!

  34. I just had to comment on this one. My oldest daughter was an only child for seven years and let me tell you not only did she have an expansive vocabulary by the age of four she was also able to identify and name her own feelings. There are several reasons why, I believe, this was the case. 1. She rarely watched any television. 2. I had been reading to her since she was in my belly and we continued to read every single night once she was born. 3. I spent a lot of time, and still do, speaking to her in an adult way. I didn't baby talk her and I always taught her new words and explained them. When you communicate with your children and don't shove them in front of a tv it's amazing how they can flourish. Spending time with your children, reading with them, crafting with them, etc can have a HUGE imapct on their development...duh. Way to be tactful, you are a better person than I :) Keep up the great work mom! xoxo
