A rundown of what we're doing,
watching, reading, coveting.
Here's what's got our attention this week.
  • Lizzy and I are heading to LA this weekend for our very first work trip! We are popping up at the beautiful shop, Midland, in Culver City–we can’t wait! I really hate flying, but I must admit, I’m pretty excited about non-kid plane travel. This might be a bit of an overstatement, but I keep telling Lizzy that it’s going to feel like THE SPA. I’ll be watching this and this, eating these, and enjoying a a. ginger ale (my plane-only drink of choice)So, not really a spa–basically just a few hours to myself, with permission to sit and eat and watch fun tv. Still sounds great!

  • While we’re out in LA, we’re going to visit the Eames House! There are no photos allowed inside, but we’ll definitely try to get some exterior shots. Follow along with us this weekend! Anywhere else we need to go while we’re out there?

  • Where do you get kids rash guards / sun protective shirts? We’re lucky to receive a lot of cousin hand-me-downs, so I usually don’t have to buy them year after year as the kids grow out of them. A friend recently told me that Primary makes them, which I didn’t know! They check all the boxes for me–affordable, no graphics, solids + a few stripes, in long + short sleeve versions. I wish they were around when my kids were babies because this baby zip version is the cutest.


  • Feel good moment of the week.

  • Do you worry about chemicals in cleaning + beauty products? Do you research what’s in them or do you trust messaging that you read from brands? A few friends suggested EWG for an easy way to check products. I like that I can check on specific things, and that I can also get top lists for different categories, without too much effort (I would start to go crazy if this wasn’t a simple plug and play situation). It’s so easy to switch something like a countertop cleaner to a product that scores an A, knowing that Major has his little mouth on it constantly.

  • Speaking of safe ingredients, I, like most moms, am always on the hunt for a good sunscreen that has safe ingredients, and also feels nice on little bodies. This season I’ve switched to Thinkbaby after reading a great review on Lucy’s List. I doubly confirmed on EWG that it was safe on their skin, and it’s much lighter and silkier than most kid’s sunscreen !
