11 years married today💕💕💕
Grabbed breakfast, got our nails done ;), massages, painted our first shiplap wall (the true test of marriage...), and now headed to dinner. It hasn’t always been easy but it’s 1000% worth it because it makes today that much more sweeter than the beginning. Love you babe🥂🖤✨🎨

The perks of being the baby...
1. Mom and dad rarely say no
2. You get treated like a baby even when you’re no longer a baby 
3. When you fight with your siblings & everyone gets in trouble- you always win🥇
4. You get away with going barefoot👣 amongst other things because by the last, as long as they’re alive🙌🏻

Back to School with Rack Room Shoes

Back to School… the time of the year that every mama loves/hates- ha! I really think that’s exactly how it breaks down for most families. Summer created many fun and wonderful memories as a family but the sound of normalcy, kid-free days sound somewhat appealing after a few months of non-stop going life!

Fortunately I’m not there just yet. I still have the option as to how much my kiddos are home with me and I’m soaking it all up! I know just how fast time flies. Before I know it, my daughter will be in Kindergarten and I won’t have any control over her schedule. I’ve got one year left- one year! So for now, as a big Pre-K school girl, I’ve made it a goal to be intentional about surprising her by picking her up early from school, keeping her home a little more, and taking her out on one-on-one dates. Just me and her.

As for the baby of the house, he just started pre-school last Thursday. & the only thing that kept the tears from flowing as I dropped him off was knowing that there is another little cutie in my belly that (obviously) won’t be starting school for a while. Something about the “last” everything that gets me.

We did the whole back to school shopping thing and found some great finds. New shoes are always on the top of the list for us. They need to be practical, comfy, and sustainable. They’re kids- these things will be worn to the bare sole! We found some great finds at Rack Room Shoes for both the kiddos and mom & dad!

Rack Room Shoes offers on-trend footwear for the family through a wide selection of nationally recognized and private brands of great shoes for men, women, and children. They carry some of our favorite brands- Converse, Nike, Vans etc. And because I’m always looking for a deal, I have to brag on their “Buy One Get One 50% Off” promotion on all styles. For a larger family, that’s some serious savings! They are also running a campaign called the Shoes That Fit Campaign. Rack Room Shoes is raising funds for families in need through this annual program to provide new shoes to at-risk children to start the school year. You can donate at the register upon check out in-store, or online.

Below are the links to the four pairs we picked out:

Brooks- Nike

Ella- Converse

Dad- Converse

Mom- Nike

If you’re in search for some reliable shoes- you can wrong with the brands we chose. Or check out more options at Rack Room Shoes.

Happy Shopping! 🙂

Oh and p.s. I do realize that my daughter’s shirt is absolutely way too short, particularly for school. Not cool on my behalf… #momfail
