College football season is just around the corner and with two crazy fan husbands we have to embrace the season…

To make we used our easy baby bow template (HERE)…

We then tied university colored ribbons instead of the classic bow.

Maybe the girls will be the lucky charms this year…let’s hope so!

Go Bruins!

Holler Dollar: Fine Tip Black Pens

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

We are always on the hunt for the perfect writing pen and are happy to spend a few dollars here and there to try out new contenders.

We found these Ultrafine pens at the dollar tree, all three for one dollar!

The hunt is over for an awesome pen for only $.33!

Time to stock up!

Cheese and Crackers for Lunch

Friday, August 14th, 2015

One of my early memories is of me sat in our living room at lunch time, watching my 15 minute program, with my mother on her chair with a big bread board across her knee prepping crackers.


Today with lil mouths of our own, the crackers are back!

They are such and easy and tasty lunch at any time, but in these hot summer months we really appreciate little prep and no heat!

THESE crackers are our recent fave, (we’ve been finding them at Costco) they are gluten free so Em can enjoy too.

Topped with Brie cheese, bacon and basil.

(Our baby version is goldfish crackers and Havarti cheese.)

Paired with what ever fruit on had you have the perfect lunch!



Holler Dollar: Teeny Tiny Elastics

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

I have only one purpose in mind when doing my hair every day… to deter those little fingers from pulling it all day long.

Two little pieces pulled back with teeny tiny elastic does the trick nicely.

500 elastics for a dollar at the Dollar Tree is so much cheaper than anywhere else.

They will come in handy when Jane gets enough hair for pigtails too!

Easy Summer Gifting with Ikea and Mrs Meyers

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

My favorite color in the summer is blue.

I don’t love blue any other time of year, but in the summer I want blue stripes and linen everywhere.

I put together the cutest blue gift for a bridal shower last week…
