Follow Your Art with Gymboree & Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Gymboree, but as always, all opinions are my own. #FollowYourArt

We've been having an unusually warm and beautiful February here California! We've had almost two weeks worth of bright sunny days, prompting us to break out the shorts and spring clothes, and enjoy some extra time outdoors!

My boys love all the messiest outside activities like playing in mud, wet sand and of course sidewalk chalk! I love letting them go wild and express their creative side, and hate telling them to "not get dirty", so I truly appreciate being able to dress them in clothes that meet the cuteness level I like, while still being durable enough to withstand their creations.

Sidewalk Chalk has been incredibly popular with both of them lately! Owen likes to draw some of his favorite characters and Luke mainly draws lines. They usually end up covered from head to toe in CHALK!

When I feel sneaking in a little lesson here are some of our favorite activities:

Find and Erase Matching Shapes
Gross Motor Games
Number Line Fun!
Chalk ABC Game

I really dislike having to tell my children to not get messy when they're playing, I want them to have fun and express themselves and not worry about ruining their outfits! -- that's why I love Gymboree!

They've been making kids clothes since 1986, and know that parents want clothes that make their kids feel great, inside and out. That’s why play-ready quality and comfort are so important!

There is so much new to see at Gymboree right now! They're ready for spring with hundreds of bright, new styles and fresh ideas—it’s a season full of possibilities!

Here are the links to what the boys are wearing -- most of which are 30% off right now!

Owen's outfit details:
Luke's outfit details:

Gymboree styles are ready to be mixed so kids can start to discover who they want to be. Because when kids feel great in their clothes, anything is possible.

I'd love to hear what cute spring outfit you'd dress your kids in! Head on over to Gymboree and then share what you'd pick in the comments below! 

I'll pick one comment at random to win a $50 Gymboree gift card!

Friday 5 - Shoe Steal, Soup Recipe and Decorating Help!

Helloooo, Friday! The last two weeks have been rough with sickness for Luke and I, which means little sleep and a whole lot of tissues being used. I'm so thankful it's the weekend again and that we're all 90% better. The weather has been gorgeous this week, so I'm looking forward to enjoying with my family.

O N E - FIRST, can you believe I paid a little under $6 for these shoes from Target? They were already on clearance and then with the 20% of from the Cartwheel app the total came to under $6, and I was totally amazed! I really like the shoes, but for that price I LOVE them.

T W O - The soil is currently being replenished in the community garden and these two boys are super excited to plant some stuff! I asked the master gardener (thank goodness for her because I'm clueless when it comes to gardening!) what we should plant when they re-open in March and she suggested we start with beans, peas and herbs. I'm really hopeful this will get my children to eat either of those things!

T H R E E - I'm realllly taking my time putting things up on our walls.  I don't want to rush into making any decisions, because I know once somethings up there I probably won't take it down. What should I put here above the buffet table? I think I want to put a mirror there, but if you have some suggestions or other cool, more creative ideas I would LOVE to hear them. 

F O U R - Owen made this cute card for his teacher's birthday this week! We searched Pinterest for ideas and dug through our craft stuff to find the supplies, and then he did most of the work with the gluing and placing and cutting and folding. We don't do a lot of crafting, but it's always fun (and super messy) when we do!

F I V E - I made this Lentil Soup with Spicy Italian Sausage a couple weeks ago when it was raining and it hit the spot. It was so good, and the lentils really thickened the whole thing up. It calls for a lot of broth, and needs every last drop of it.
