My sweet friend Ashley at Chickadee Chickadee has launched a new dress line and I couldn’t be more excited to see the adorable pink and navy preppy patterns she chose! Ashley is an Atlanta girl as well. We are friends through church and our daughters go to the same school. We have also been in a discipleship group together throughout the last seven years. A couple months ago, Ashley passed around the photos of her sample dresses and I was so tickled with her selections! Pink and Navy Preppy Nautical!! Of course, I love it!! Ashley has worked countless, countless hours alongside a local group of seamstresses to create this beautiful new collection of summer goodies! It has been so fun for our little businesses to collaborate over the years. If you are not familiar with the talents of Chickadee Chickadee, please be sure to take a fun visit. The “Offshore Ruffle Tank Dress” would be an absolutely perfect outfit for your Preppy Nautical party!

I always love when I come across cute clothing that coordinates with Sweet Peach party themes! Are you familiar with Castles & Crowns? I’ve ordered several things from their adorable shop, including the girls’ Christmas pjs from last year. I have been so pleased with their quality. Castles & Crowns has released their spring line and it includes the most precious watermelon collection. What a sweet outfit for those summer watermelon parties! See my Eliza’s Watermelon Picnic party for more ideas and find all the coordinating printables in the shop. Plan your watermelon party and then run over to Castles & Crowns for some matching sweetness! Come on summer!!! SHOP Castles & Crowns Watermelon Collection

My VERY favorite shoes for the girls are on Zulily today! I just ordered the pink polka dots again. $19.99 is a super great price so I had to share! On top of that, I love that Puddle Jumpers was started by a mom of two little girls. Adorable and durable shoes with a portion of their yearly profits giving back to orphanages around the world. Love them! Order yours today on Zulily!

It used to make me crazy when stores would put out Christmas decorations and start the music in October…. or if you are Hobby Lobby, July!!! I well understand all the crafters have to prepare very early for holiday business. I start thinking about Christmas card designs in September and October myself. Now with children, my time is soooo much more limited that I have started shopping early as well. Instead of losing Halloween and Thanksgiving by thinking ahead, I feel like I completely gain it. I have only succeeded one year, but let me tell you, it was the most wonderful feeling!!! I set the goal of being completely finished with Christmas shopping by December 1st. {With exception to our tradition of taking the girls shopping for each other}. I was able to focus on the true meaning of Christmas- the birth of Jesus!! – and enjoy the season fully with our family. Now, all of this is coming from a girl who has been shopping on Christmas Eve and wrapping presents at midnight waaay too many times to count. It’s a serious challenge for me to work that far ahead, but I’m getting better and have three little ladies that provide great motivation!! Anna Claire and I had a big shopping day a few weeks ago and had the best time together!! If I had all three with me, it wouldn’t have been enjoyable at hour six…. or hour two for that matter. Yes, we shopped for 6 hours and loved every minute of it. Just being together, one-on-one made it so fun! Special snacks, getting to hold my hand non-stop and all the little talks that come with being on a date. We found some sweet gifts and I wanted to share one that I just love. Are you familiar with Stacy Brown Designs? She makes the most adorable hand painted personalized bracelets. I’ve bought them for others and they are super cute! One day, I will actually buy one for myself too! She has sooo many designs, color combos, patterns and styles. Stacy Brown also sells monogrammed purses, frames and so much more! To see all the possibilities, be sure to check out her beautiful shop! I hope you can find some special gifts for your loved ones this year. Join me in shopping early (this post is my accountability!!). Let’s take away the stress of Christmas and put the meaning back in it!
