BEST COFFEE IN SEATTLE + RUFFLES ON EVERYTHING

We’ve officially given into the cold weather and are trading our favorite ice cream shops for coffee shops! This one is C & P Coffee Company in West Seattle. Doesn’t that bright colored door just beg you to come in and see what’s on the other side? The answer is delicious coffee and an eclectic and cozy atmosphere. It was too busy to try and take pics inside so the equally cute front patio area will have to do, but you guys would have loved it!

The weather was decent (aka, not raining!) so we grabbed our drinks and snacks and sat outside. Americanos are my go-to but opted for a latte just for the foam. Best decision I ever made :)

I’ve also traded in my tees for sweaters (and sweatshirts of course)! And thanks to a Happy Birthday coupon code to Anthropologie, I have a new one with ruffles. There are so many cute ones out there to choose from but I’m loving the detail and placement on the sleeve.

Can we also talk about how cute Poppy’s little ruffle dress is!? I’ll link all outfit details below!

Poppy had fallen asleep on the car ride and woke up on the wrong side of the car seat, if you know what I mean? Come to think of it, she’s always kind of a bear when she wakes up! Could it be a blood sugar thing? Or just a personality thing? Snacks always help but I think that’s just a general rule of being human.

Aside from snacks, we haven’t left the house lately without a travel bag of shopkins for Poppy. They’re easy to sort, line up in a row or pretend play with.

Poppy perked up on the walk back to the car, so we decided to stop by a friend’s house just a few blocks away for some playtime. Not a bad way to spend the morning!

What’s your favorite way to spend a morning?

LET’S CHAT: ESSENTIAL OILS + AN EASY DIY BEDTIME SPRAY

It’s hard to ignore the essential oil bandwagon thats been growing strong now for awhile, particularly within the motherhood community. I’m wondering if there are any other trends we can compare it to? Maybe tupperware parties? Anyways, I often find myself somewhere in the middle of most issues, political, theological, and even more often when […]

I HEART TJ: TILLY’S NEW YORK THEMED BDAY PARTY

A couple weeks ago we celebrated our Tilly Jane’s 9th B-day with a New York City themed party. The festivities included street food inspired eats, T-Swift jams, the cutest photo backdrop, lots of confetti and of course her sweet friends. So basically all of her favorite things! I was extra lucky to have lots of […]

NOVEMBER DINNERS

Seems like we’ve skipped the second half of fall and went straight to winter, and not just because of the bins of Christmas decorations sitting in our family room. It actually snowed over the weekend, which is not normal but does make turning on the oven that much more appealing! This morning we whipped up […]
