Our family was freed up last minute from some obligations Keith and I thought were going to have us staying put for Spring Break. Which left us wondering what we could do on short notice that we would all enjoy. Crowds and crowded places really make me crazy. I need personal space. And don’t like […]
Let’s talk skiing with little ones. With Del now almost five and having skied four times, we’ve gone at this a few different ways, so here’s my perspective having experienced this from several points of view. This is for people like us who ski once or twice per year. For those who have access to […]
Not just your typical Monday. So many great deals this Monday, so it’s a great day to finish your holiday shopping… and have time to get those gifts in time to wrap them up pretty AND without having to pay rush shipping. Many of these deals are TODAY ONLY 12/10, so if you snooze, you […]
Does everyone agree white elephant gift exchanges are so much fun? But when you go to parties with super clever friends who give super clever gifts, there can be a lot of pressure to not be the one who brings the lame gift that no one wants to steal. Amirite? So if a white elephant […]
Stockings might be my favorite thing on Christmas morning. Maybe it’s because they’re usually things not asked for, so they seem like bonus gifts. Who doesn’t love a bonus?! Santa is pretty clever with his ideas; I’ve rounded up some of our favorites. With planning, those elves can gather meaningful gifts for stockings that don’t […]
If you follow @topknots_and_takeout on Instagram, you got a glimpse of a. our sibling/spouse love for each other (in a non-creepy way) and b. the adorable place we took a couples trip for a weekend vacay. We called this trip our “Sibling Bash”… because we’re super wild, so ‘bash’ is only appropriate. Or something. Our brother Daniel and his wife Kristen got married in Dripping Springs several years ago. Their schedules did not allow them to honeymoon for an extended period immediately following their wedding, so they found Sage Hill Inn & Spa as the perfect place to relax and recharge to close out their wedding weekend. Fast forward a couple of years, Christiane planned a visit with her husband, followed by Daniel and Kristen deciding to join in on the fun, so naturally Keith and I were not going to miss out!
Fun things to put in an old purse for a toddler/little girl to play with. Many items you have around the house.
There is a nasty rumor out there that ‘they’ don’t make cute boy clothes. Just not true. As the mom of both genders, it’s true there are more accessories and probably more variety for girls, but there are sooooo many cute boy clothes. My little dude has developed quite a love for fashion over his […]
Remember when you were 18, about to “go out”? You planned your outfit, you knew just what was in style, and when you went out, you were generally wearing the same thing as every other 18 year old girl. Now….now, if you were to go that same place you would feel like a dinosaur. Somewhere […]
Okay, since doing a couple of stories about packing school lunches, Erica and I have had a few questions about what we pack in our kids’ lunch boxes. Since I am always looking for new, easy ideas for things to pack in the kids’ lunch, and I’m sure other people are too, we’ve decided to […]
