The story behind this playhouse is it’s one of the first things I bought when I left my job to be a stay at home mom. I bought it for something crazy like $30 from another mom on buy/sell/trade. It was supposed to be my super cute Pinterest project to work on “when I had time” while I was at home with the kids. Cue the laughter.
In the beginning, I had structured the blog on reasons to get out of the house: and that was legit. Because inside the house, baby Wyatt would cry anytime I would try to finish ANY task if I wasn’t holding him.
As a SLO CAL Storyteller, the region’s tourism district will be arranging monthly adventures for us to try out along California’s awesome Central Coast. This ranges in anything from water excursions and horseback riding to nature tours in the backcountry expanses of our region. Then we will take pics and video along the way, write about it, and post it on our blog & theirs.
If you’re going to the California Mid Stare Fair with small children, I highly recommend heading to the entire Rancho Frontier area on the southwest side of the fairgrounds (South Gate area of Frontier Town) and making that your home base.
Overall, this tent playhouse is a beautiful item. It satisfies all the things I look for in kids stuff: fun factor + style. AND it was so easy to put together. More on that below. But first back to the style … I like that it boasts the Scandinavian look I endlessly search for but is so surprisingly hard to find. And that scalloped roof detail is oh-so-sweet. That’s why I was so happy when I found Petite Maison — a company that just so happened to be looking to push an expansion into the U.S. this year. Woot.
We received an Octopus Hoopla bath toy compliments of Nuby in exchange for our honest review. And the verdict is … we love it! Overall, we highly recommend this for bath time since it can be used in a number of ways.
This set came with a stainless steel fork, spoon and knife trio featuring a cute picture of a bee on the handle. It’s perfect for my 2 year old who is still learning how to use forks and spoons at mealtime.
I received this Round ABC rug compliments of Lorena Canals Rugs in exchange for our review. And, you guys, it’s kind of perfect.
We picked this rug in the natural/black color scheme for our living room/play space, and it’s just been the best thing! It’s big and soft, 100% natural cotton and the kids love playing on it. The kiddos have also incorporated its ring of bold letters into playtime, often singing the ABCs as they walk around it – which, let me tell you, is the cutest thing ever.
I’m happy to share that the fine folks behind PASO Magazine (where we have a column) have created a second publication called Colony Magazine for our neighboring city of Atascadero!
And I’m absolutely honored for our Two in Tow column to be included in its inaugural issue published July 1, 2018!
My wish for my children is that they always find friendship in each other. That they find joy and creativity in play. And that they each have their own comfortable space. These words are inspired by our newest collab compliments of DockATot.
I received two DockATot Grand Docks in the oh-so-chic Bananas For You print in exchange for our honest review.
