random things for friday!

IMG_8987-2
this week, i just haven't felt the push to finish up any posts of substance. 
so for now, a random post full of random things to share with you all:
.
i'm finally trying to buy some sandals for my boys! i got a great deal on these for asher today at old navy (where i'm working now!) and i'm thinking about grabbing these for roman. i have such a hard time finding boys' sandals. i think that this style of sandal is just so ugly really but i want my boys to have shoes that protect their feet when they are playing! last summer, the boys had a rough time hiking in the mountains with flimsy sandals so i am trying to find something a little more durable. i really like keens but they are just too expensive! any suggestions on cute, quality, affordable boys sandals?
.
speaking of clothing, i am happy that asher has branched out in what he will wear. during the winter, he would basically only wear two different pairs of sweatpants and two long sleeve shirts that he would rotate through. he had a very hard time adjusting to shorts this spring because he is very sensitive and particular. miraculously though, lately he has branched out and become less selective about what he wears! this makes things so much easier and honestly i enjoy it as well because i love dressing my little boys! he is still very picky and wears some ridiculous things, (currently he is wearing hiking boots two sizes too big) but i'm glad that it is less of a battle. 
.
have any of you signed up with Moms Affiliate? it's a new referral marketing network designed just for mommy bloggers! there are different sections for bloggers to look through and sign up to write articles or advertise products on your blog. i recently signed up with them and have been periodically checking in to see what they are offering. if you are interested in making money from your blog, it's worth checking out!
(bonus: if you sign up i will get a cash incentive and you can too when you refer others!)
.
i finally purchased american blogger and hope to watch it in the next few days! have any of you seen it? it's SO weird seeing some bloggers that i've followed forever, like melissa and bridget actually speaking!
( hey look rachael, i wrote about it on my blog! )
.
we just finished parks and recreation on netflix and have moved onto watching finding bigfoot. at first i didn't think a show about hunting for bigfoot would interest me, but we are hooked! watching tv and eating junk food is what we do here every night when the boys are sleeping.
.
i haven't been on instagram lately because i'm having trouble connecting my ipod to the internet! i've missed it but it's always nice to get a little break from some of my "electronics," as roman would say!
.
i've started doing "fun friday" with the boys. i got this idea from a church moms' group that i went to with my friend. basically every friday i have a fun little surprise for the boys. this is way out of my comfort zone because it's one of those "pinteresty" kind of things that i never do but i think it will be fun and roman is super excited! last week i gave them bubbles and jump ropes to play with on the the 4th of july and today i have some really adorable inexpensive little camping themed toys for them which will make them crazy thrilled!
.
well, that's all the randomness that i have for today. happy friday everyone!

  1. Mace has a pair of similar shoes to those Old Navy ones! They are OshKosh, and I agree, they are not so cute, but I really like them because they protect his feet and he can wear them in water like at the splash pad or just running in the yard with the sprinkler on. He also has a pair of OshKosh ones that look like Birks that are SO CUTE that he wears pretty much every day unless he's going to daycare or getting all wet. They were the sturdiest true sandals I could find without spending a fortune. I don't see them online but last time I was in the OshKosh store they still had some.

    1. Thanks for your input Sally! I ended up getting the wrong size shoe for Asher but did the sandals for Roman that I linked to here and they have worked out great. I am just forever wishing that they made clothing / shoes a little bit more cutesy for boys; I feel like little boys stuff is too manly sometimes!

  3. I don't have boys, so I don't know what to look for in boy shoes, but my friends have found great deals on Toms on eBay and Craigslist for barely worn or practically new ones. They aren't sandals, but super lightweight.

    I love Parks and Rec!

    Fun Friday?! That seems like something I could manage- I might try it!
