The Missouri State Fair

The Missouri State Fair


A few weeks ago Ryan took a stay-cation & it just happened to be during the Missouri State Fair. I hadn't been since my college days & I was reluctant to go because of the heat. Ryan had his heart set on going & so we loaded up the car & drove about an hour to the fair one week day. As soon as we got there we watched the pig races & we had never seen anything quite like it before. The announcer had his two kids as part of the show & they were just as entertaining as the actual pigs! They played musical instruments, did backflips, & told jokes. All the crowd was involved & it was a really fun way to start the day!

Yaya's Alpaca Farm

Yaya's Alpaca Farm


A few weeks ago Ryan took an entire week off of work & we had a little stay-cation in Kansas City. We have an ever growing list of places we want to visit & restaurants we want to try & having a week to devote to exploring our own town was exactly what we did. Even with a whole week we only got through about 1/4 of the list, so I guess that means he'll need to take another week off this fall! If you've never done a stay-cation before, I highly recommend it. We always tend to book trips away from home when he's off work, and we even tossed that idea around, but ultimately decided to stay home & enjoy all that KC has to offer.

Mommy & Me Matching Outfits

Mommy & Me Matching Outfits


Last week I asked for mommy + me clothing line suggestions on my Instastories & thank you, I got so many new suggestions. Matching with my little Magnolia is the sweetest thing & she gets just as excited about it as I do! Leopard print is everywhere this year & that will be a style that we wear on repeat. We just stocked up on some basics + leopard print over the weekend at H&M. We're also big lovers of Hunter boots & creating a matching outfit around our boots is always easy & fun.

Part Two: Summer Adventures

Part Two: Summer Adventures


Hello friends. I'm back for the second part of our Summer Adventures post. We didn't go on any trips this summer, but we still made our hometown of Kansas City a place to explore. And on the days that we stayed home, we had cupcake parties (kind of like a tea party, but with cupcakes instead), tutus & Alexa made for the most fun dance parties (Get Up Dance by Blanco Brown, we're getting pretty good at it), and Magnolia is the sweetest mommy to all her baby dolls (heart melting adorable).
