Back to School Favorites 2019

Sloan and Phayre start school in 25 days!!!  I'll be honest, I am SO not ready to get back on an early morning schedule.  I also just love having them home so much!!!

I took the girls school clothes shopping this morning and we found a few cute things, but I was kind of disappointed with how picked over the stores were!  I couldn't find anything they liked in their sizes!  We came home and finished up our shopping online and I am happy to check school shopping off of my list!  Now I just need to start preparing for this baby to come (so soon!!).

Here are our favorite back to school essentials, I hope you find something for your little lady here!

Striped dress (Both girls loved this dress so I had to order one in each of their sizes!)
Pink water bottle (These are our favorite, they're so durable and keep drinks ice cold!)
Pink polka dot coat (Got this one for Sloany! Seriously considering ordering it got P too.)
Rainbow freezer pack (these are my favorite kind, I order a few new ones each year)
Cardigan (my girls have these cardigans in so many colors, they go with everything and you can't beat the price!)
Glitter backpack (Sloan finally wore me down and I splurged on this for her, it is SO cute!!)
Skinny jeans (If you have a long and slender girl, she needs these.  These are the ONLY jeans that fit Sloan!)
Pointelle long sleeve tee (Favorite basic tees ever.  There is also a short sleeve version.)

I also wanted to mention that I love the name labels from Stuck on You.  Sloan uses these bento boxes to take her lunch to school and Phayre uses these divided containers to take her snack to school!

A Halloween Birthday Party (in August!) // Happy Birthday Phayre and Briar!

I love love love celebrating my two summer babies together!  Phayre and Briar's birthdays are just two weeks apart so it's been so fun the last two years throwing them joint birthday parties.  The best part about summer birthdays is getting to plan the party outside.  I rented a space at our local park and it was just perfect.  It's actually the same space we had their party at last year (remember their cute little Camp Brown party??).

Phayre is so excited to finally turn four!  All of her little friends have already turned four so she's been dying to join the big four year old club.  She's also the last of her little friends to move up to the pre-k class at church which has been a very big deal for her.  They're all reunited on Sunday's so life is just as it should be :).

I cannot believe Briar is about to turn two.  Even though I am pregnant and about to have another baby, I still feel like I was just pregnant with B!  Fastest two years of my life I swear!!  Briar is at such a fun age.  He's talking like crazy, is so polite, and one of the funniest humans I have ever known.

Phayre Bear requested a Halloween dress up party this year which was pretty funny since their birthdays are in the summer.  I thought for sure she'd eventually change her mind and pick a different theme, but she was adamant that it be a Halloween dress up party so that's just what we did!

So many friends came to celebrate P and B.  They had the best time and we are so grateful we got to share such a fun day with so many friends!  Phayre wanted to be Tinker Bell at the party so that meant Briar had to be Peter Pan, Sloan had to be Wendy, and Eric and I had the worst Captain Hook and Nana costumes of all time! 😂

Phayre's Tinker Bell costume  /  Wings  /  Shoes  /  Headband  /  Briar's Peter Pan costume  /  Green tights  /  Sloan's Wendy nightgown  /  All of the banners and cake toppers are from Pearl and Jane  /  Eyeball balloons  /  Spiderweb tablecloth  /  Black cauldrons  /  Candy Corn  /  Ghost piñata  /  All of the little pumpkins on the table are from Hobby Lobby

Two Year Old Boy Gift Guide

Our little Briar Brown is almost two!!!  I know I know, I can't believe it either.  How on earth can this sweet boy of ours already be turning two?!

I rounded up some fun gifts for a two year old boy.  Briar is obsessed with airplanes so you'll see lots of airplane toys!  I can't wait to spoil our boy in just over a week!

Happy Birthday Phayre Bear! Four Year Old Girl Gift Guide

I made this gift guide over a month ago and never got around to posting it!  No secret that the blog has taken a back seat this last year... we're always around on Instagram though!

Phayre had the absolute best fourth birthday!  We brunched at her favorite restaurant (Slappy Cakes), played in the water at Jamison Square, shopped at a little local toy store, and finished the day at Por Que No for tacos!  Phayre loves all things rainbows and unicorns so you'll see those in lots of her gifts!  She asked for a jewelry box, a robe, and an American Girl Doll.  I found the cutest of each and that's just what our girl got for her special day!

I always get my girls some new books and workbooks.  I love this letter tracing book, Mermaid School, and All The Ways To Be Smart.
Daisy Hat (it sold out, bummer!)
Unicorn jewelry box (This was a massive hit, P loves it so much)
Poppy Lane and Co. bracelets (use code HELLOBABYBROWN for 20% off-these are our absolute favorite bracelets!)
