Quarantine with Littles

Just sharing some of our current favorites for keeping the girls entertained and some other great options, too. Everything listed has a free shipping option, as well. So no worries about needing to venture out to a store to get stuff!

Paisley has been doing puzzles like crazy. So I’ll start there.

These floor puzzles are some of our favorite. We actually have several of them. The quality is great and the pieces fit together really nicely. Tons of different pictures to choose from too.

I shared a 4 pack of princess puzzles that Paisley and I were doing, in stories. I tried to find those exact puzzles and could only find them being resold on eBay, but I did find this cute little four pack for $9.99


Marty went and bought this giant pack of chalk and stencils for $12 on Quarantine day 1. The girls have played with it everyday, at some point throughout the day. Plenty of chalk for several kids, too!

P is only 5, but she’s been really obsessed with working on addition lately. So I’m ordering this fun little number toy for her. You can match up the colors, numbers, etc. and you can also take the color coordinated rings and use them for addition practice. Super affordable and it’s wood! I think it would be age-appropriate for kids anywhere from 2-6, different aged kids would just utilize it in different ways.

*SIGH* I have been resisting kinetic sand for YEARS. But Marty brought some home when he went and bought chalk last week and the girls have been OBSESSED. I thought it would be such a mess, but it’s actually not bad. It sticks to itself, for the most part & is SUPER easy to sweep/vacuum up. I’m actually glad he bought it. Both girls have been entertained by it for hours. I’ll share a couple different sets at different prices.

  1. 1lb. of sand + 16 tools $14
  2. Rainbow Sand Set $10
  3. 2lb. of sand + 10 tools $20

We don’t have this but I saw it the other day (can’t remember where) and it looks like such a fun fidget toy! It’s similar to a rubix cube, but meant for younger  kids. You match up the smaller balls (inside) to the colored spot on the ball. Under $8. Definitely worth having around!


This coloring subscription is AMAZING. It’s FIVE dollars a month. Typically you get about 6 hand-drawn coloring pages each month, but Tara has added 20 extra pages this month, for free! You can print the pages as many times as you’d like, and you keep the downloads forever (I can go back and print out pages from several months ago, when we first subscribed). So the pages accumulate over time and you can go back and print out old pages when you need extras! We used to print them out at Office Depot every month, but recently bought a cheap printer so we don’t have to leave the house. The girls love coloring these, but I’m pretty sure I actually enjoy coloring them more than anyone. The best part – nobody is fighting over coloring books/pictures because I print several of each page so we each have one!

I’ll link our printer (if you don’t already have one), where to sign up for the Color Happy subscription ($5) and our favorite markers for these coloring pages.

P’s teacher has been sending daily worksheets to print out and we’ve been doing those but I also wanted to get some hands-on stuff for her to work on addition, counting, etc. So I grabbed a couple things on Amazon! I’ll link a few great options here :

Field of Dreams, exploring Seabrook.

I have absolutely no clue where to even begin with this one, so just let me say this; the entire Field of Dreams / Seabrook, WA experience is absolutely magical. Also let me preface this post with this – I have traveled a substantial amount. I have stayed in a lot of hotels, rentals, cabins, etc. but I have NEVER stayed anywhere like Field of Dreams. Nothing compares to our experience in Seabrook. I can’t speak for every cottage in town, but I can tell you exactly what I think of Field of Dreams. I am in actual disbelief about how perfect our experience was. I’m going to start from the beginning and share it all – no promises that I won’t get sidetracked though!

IMG_9546

Let’s assume you and your family are staying at Field of Dreams – When you arrive in Seabrook, you’ll need to check in at the Cottage Rentals office, located on Front Street, right next to the market. You’ll be greeted like a local, you’ll get a special code that you’ll use for access to your cottage for the duration of your stay & (if you’re traveling with a doggo) they’ll give you a little bag with info about staying in Seabrook with a pup, a few small dog treats & a special tag for their collar in case they get lost. Use the town map and follow Meriweather St. into the Farm District. Pass the community garden, the playground & the basketball courts. Field of Dreams is on the left, just beyond horseshoe park. You’ll arrive at the back of the house. The front of the cottage faces Orchard Walk Park, a small area with a  water feature that separates the cottage from the very nearby woods where you’ll find the Narnia trail. You’ll know you’ve found the right house when you see the red door.

Seabrook loves a good pop of color!

Field of Dreams sleeps 10ish people. The cottage has 3 king bedrooms, each with it’s own au suite bathroom and individual decor style. There is also a kids’ room with dual bunk beds and a separate play nook with plenty of toys. There’s a half bath off the laundry room, a gorgeous farm style dining area and living room, complete with a HUGE sectional & a full size kitchen so you can eat in instead of going out! There’s also a private hot tub at the back of the house & a gas fire pit on the front porch. Hello s’more roasting! * One room in the house has heated floors, but I’ll leave it up to you to to find out which room it is!

IMG_0171

We cooked dinner in the cottage twice and it was SO easy. We ordered Home Chef meals and had them delivered on the day of our arrival (you could also just bring them from home in an ice chest). The meal kits come with 99% of what you need and the rest is available in the house. We were able to just toss it all in the fridge and cook it when we were ready. I’ll share more about our experience with Home Chef in a separate post, but if you’re looking to try out their meal delivery, you can use code BGROWW100 for $100 off your first order right here! Field of Dreams has every dish, utensil, tool, etc. you could possibly need plus all the essential spices, just in case! One night my sister and I cooked together & the next, my mom helped with dinner. We could easily work together in the kitchen without any issue, we saved a ton of money by eating in AND we had so much fun cooking together and then enjoying dinner as a family, in the privacy of our cottage!

Field of Dreams is a dog-friendly cottage, so bring your pups! We brought our dachshund, Bear, along for the adventure and I am SO glad we did! We took him on a beach trip one other time but even though our hotel was pet-friendly, they didn’t necessarily LIKE pets & it almost seemed like they purposely made it difficult to bring your pet with. So glad we took a chance and brought our little guy with us to Seabrook. He had just as much fun as the rest of us! I seriously appreciate that Field of Dreams loves the  puppers just as much as us! Just make sure to leash your pup & clean up after them, though! You don’t want to be THOSE people!

The only real downside to staying at Field of Dreams? Eventually, you’ll have to go home. Paisley & Hallie both shed a few genuine tears before bed on our last night at the cottage. They weren’t ready to leave “our new house” and I don’t blame them one bit. This trip was a dream come true. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We made so many incredible memories, spent time together as a family without the distractions of “real life” and were able to enjoy every second of each day. This trip was something that’s usually hard to come by with kids; easy and so, SO relaxing. Field of Dreams, you have a little piece of our hearts forever. No doubt about it.

Want to know more about the town of Seabrook?

Seabrook is a beautifully curated, little beach town along the Washington coast, home to the Field of Dreams cottage. You can walk anywhere in town in less 10 minutes. There aren’t a ton of overwhelming souvenir shops or questionable diners. There are, however, a couple great restaurants, a coffee shop, a candy store, a toy store, a book store, one tasteful Seabrook merchandise store, a small grocery market with all the essentials, a four-legged friend store, a Chip & Jo-esque interior decor store, a spa, a bike rental spot & a small clothing boutique. Essentially – there is one of everything. But just one. And they are all beautiful! It’s quality over quantity in Seabrook. The streets are clean, the cars on the road are few and pedestrians rule the streets. There are free, kid-friendly adventures on every corner. Several trails for hiking, a special trail for gnome hunting, 10+ parks scattered around town, a basketball court, a zip-line, a dog park, horseshoe pits, bocce ball courts, countless fire pits stocked with freshly chopped wood, an indoor pool, a gym, tennis courts and of course, the beach! The town is divided into 8 districts, each named fittingly. Field of Dreams is nestled in the Farm District, across from the Equestrian center. The distance from Field of Dreams to the town center is about a 5 minute walk. Seabrook is like something out of a movie. The people are so friendly, everything is clean and beautiful. The entire town is esthetically pleasing. Hundreds of cottage style homes in the most gorgeous colors with the sweetest little crushed seashell sidewalks. The kind of place you can walk around at night and never look over your shoulder once.

I could keep you here all day chatting about all the little things to do around Seabrook, but I figure it’s easiest to just share a few photos from *some* of our adventures and caption them accordingly :

The gnome trail – Find the old stump on Compass Street and just beyond it, you’ll find the start of the gnome trail. Tiny fairies and gnomes tucked away in their homes, just waiting for you to find them. Our kids had SO much fun hunting gnomes. Constant gasps and shouting “LOOK!” to each other as they found each little gnome house.

Visit the horses – The Seabrook Equestrian center is right across from Field of Dreams and the horses are beautiful! Definitely the biggest, friendliest horses we’ve ever met!

Head into town, grab yourself a Chilly Goat (thanks for the suggestion, Liz) at Red Velvet Bakery & then go around the corner to Tides by Seabrook, say hi to Rowen and buy every single hat in her store, because they’re amazing! She has much more than hats, but I’m sure you’ve noticed my obsession. I’ve never seen such beautiful town merchandise!

We also had dinner at Koko’s, a mexican-esque restaurant in town, found some quirky candy at The Sweet Life, snagged some cute things for the girls from Brooklets Toys  & browsed SeaWorthy Home for a bit. All definitely worth visiting!

Being bored, grumpy or stressed in Seabrook is not an option. Relaxing, having a good time & just going with the flow are the norm here. Both girls really loved Brooklets Toys, right across the street from Tides. Paisley really loved all the little hidden trails we walked & wanted to spend hours on the zip line. Hallie’s favorites were probably the gnome trail and the giant Saint Bernard we met in town. My favs? Shopping in the town center and relaxing at the cottage. Something for everyone!

And no – we did not forget to visit the beach! We found starfish and sand dollars and cruised up and down the beach several times. I love watching the girls get excited over every little shell.

Last but certainly not least, I want to extend a very special thanks to The Anderson’s for allowing us to share their sweet, little, hidden-gem beach house with all of you. Until next time, Seabrook! XO

Vacation Style!

I wanted to share EVERYTHING about our trip all in one place, but there was just SO much to share, so I decided to split the outfit details into a separate post. Some outfits are linked on the liketoknow.it app. Several of the pieces we wore during our trip were from Polliwogs Children’s Boutique in Richland. Shop their online store here or if you’re local, find them in the Uptown shopping center in Richland. Alexa has created such a beautiful little spot to shop, she chooses the most beautiful pieces to sell in her store and she is such a sweet gal! Use code BGROWW for 15% your order.

These AMAZING sweatshirts can be found here : adult // kids . I’m wearing the S/M & the girls are wearing 2/4 & 4/6. We wore these sweatshirts for a good portion of our stay. The weather was colder than we had anticipated and these were PERFECT.

Paisley is wearing this lace neckline dress, the bell sleeves are so dang cute! And my sweet little sundress is this Rylee & Cru mama style. I’m definitely thinking about going back for this dress in the other color. The length and the thickness of the material are soo goooood! We have a few other Polliwog’s outfits to share but the weather wasn’t quite warm enough to take pictures of them while we were in Seabrook, so I’ll be taking pictures of them in the next week or so and sharing them when I can!

June & January sent us a package of goodies also, but unfortunately it was delivered after we had already left town – so I’ll be sharing those styles soon also! You can use code BGROWW20 when you shop here at June & January!

All of our hats are from Tides by Seabrook!

The Gift Guide

I will be the first to admit it, I’m not the world’s best gift-giver. But I do have some awesome suggestions. Even if these don’t fit, maybe one of them will spark an idea for ya!

What YOU could ask for when someone asks:

0FDD54D7-0CF3-4E98-BB91-684B629E7F61IMG_5949

These huggie hoop earrings are probably the #1 thing I’d ask for this year, they’re just so dainty and perfect. I have the necklace that matches this “mama” ring and it has held up SO incredibly well. I shower with it on, sleep with it on, swim with it on in the summer, etc. and it hasn’t shown any signs of wear at all. Such great quality for an awesome price.


IMG_5944

This. Blanket. Holy cow! Such a cute ‘snuggle on the couch’ throw. Available in several colors, too! It’s on sale right now, but don’t come after me later if the sale ends. Lol.


IMG_4970 IMG_4972 IMG_4971

Any FP bag would make a great gift, even for non-moms. Pro-tip though, their shipping can be painfully slow sometimes, so if you want to be absolutely sure you get your order before Christmas – you can order most of their bags through Amazon and use the free 2-day shipping. There are tons of color options for every style of bag. Here are some Amazon links to their bags –

IMG_5955 IMG_5954IMG_5956

This hair dryer brush has been a super hot item this year. I have been wanting to try it out for months so I asked for it for Christmas from my Mama this year. Certain colors are cheaper, some are sold out, etc. But definitely check it out if you blow dry your hair a lot.


These beanies are so amazing! Their the closest thing I can find to my favorite beanies from last year that people always ask about. I’ve seen them style by tons of other bloggers and they look really, really similar to mine! Available in 4 colors!

I’m actually wearing this cozy sweatshirt (and the leggings linked below) as I’m writing this blog post. I would buy them  both in every color if I could. I think the sweatshirt speaks for itself as far as coziness/comfort. It’s amazing and has fur in just the right places. And these leggings – They are the most buttery soft, amazing leggings I’ve ever found. Squat-proof, not too hot, they don’t pill at all and they are soon soft. SOOOOO soft. Both the sweatshirt and leggings are available in several colors. I’ll share a few of the colors, but there are tons more!

IMG_5964 IMG_5962 IMG_5963

The leggings –

IMG_5961 IMG_5959 IMG_5958

 


Can we please talk about how these slippers are this cheap? Plus free shipping? Okay. I’ll take one of every color, I guess (there are tons of colors, I chose shared a few here)!

Black Friday Round-Up!

I’ve rounded up a few black friday sales from retailers/brands that I love and already own. I could have done a round-up of every black friday sale I know of, but that’s not really my style (& that would be really overwhelming).

So, here we go – my top fav Black Friday (week) sales to check out!

As always – you can shop anything and everything I love/own by going to my liketoknowit profile and shopping through the images.


First up – Everything here is 40% off, no code needed! I haven’t seen any exclusions at all. So this is a really good sale! I have way too many items from this retailer to link them all here, but you can scroll my liketoknow.it and see them all, styled in outfits & I share my size info often in the captions over there.

IMG_4984 IMG_4985 IMG_4986 img_4987.png IMG_4988 img_4989.png img_4990.png IMG_4991 IMG_4992 IMG_4193 IMG_4996-2 img_4998-2.png IMG_4995 IMG_4993 IMG_4997-2 img_4994.png


BOGO on my absolute favorite bracelets, how could I not share? These are great for you, your friends, your sisters, teachers, cousins, mom, etc. The quality is amazing and every single one of their styles is really, really versatile! You can also find several IRL pictures of these on my liketoknow.it page & over on Instagram!


One of my absolute favorite cosmetics brands is having 30% off site wide this week, but their products do tend to sell out pretty quick when they have big sales, so you may find that a lot of items are gone at the end of the week. Their free shipping threshold is only $35 so it’s really easy to get a ton of stuff + free shipping for under $40 total. This post has 99% of my favorite products linked. I swear by the “flexitarian” highlighter, LOVE their setting spray & only use their brow gel on my brows. It’s my holy grail, #1, must-have makeup product. Shop here!

 


The. Best. Baby. Shoes. And bags and kiddo shoes, of course. Both my girls wore FP as babies and they still wear FP sandals. I have loved FP forever and ever. I even have some of their mama stuff with the FP logo on it. I’ve hosted giveaways with them on my IG before also. My love for this brand is YEARS old. Their sale is incredible. Everything is 30% off, plus an additional 20% off with the fringe. You should* be able to get a free membership as well.

If you want to learn more about the brand, go here! If you just want to shop, go here! I know this sounds cliche, but I *do* get messages from people who are bummed that something I shared is sold out, but the things I share do generally sell out quick because the bargains are so good. So please don’t wait if you’re hoping to score some great deals this week! The bags and popular shoe styles will FLY off the site.

I’ll also link a few of my current favs below with individual links to shop them directly!

img_4969.png IMG_4973 IMG_4974 IMG_4970 IMG_4971 img_4976.png img_4977.png IMG_4972


My absolute favorite baby/kiddo clothing brand is having amazing deals all week. You have to be on top of it to take advantage of the best deals for you, though. So I’ll share a graphic below to help you keep-up!

I’ll drop a few pictures of my girls in J&J below but most of the pieces we own are sold out by now. So sorry! There are TONS of really great pieces going out for this sale though!

You can also use my code BGROWW20 any time when there isn’t already a sale going!
