My 13th Stitch Fix

My 13th Stitch Fix came over the weekend and it was a good one! I was excited to see some things right away in the box that I knew I would love. Now comes the hard part- making decisions!!

Here’s what I got:

41Hawthorn Carla Crochet Detail Blouse $58

I have a few other tops by this brand and love them. I initially was skeptical about the red as I don’t wear a lot of red but once I tried it on, I was convinced it had a place in my closet.

Decision: Keep

Market and Spruce Jannice Knit Dress $58

I really, really liked this. It fits well, it’s flowy. It’d be perfect for summer…but I’m waffling. I don’t love the back- halter straps aren’t my thing.

Decision: Undecided

Market and Spruce Girona Eyelet Detail Top $64

This was one that as soon as I laid eyes on it I knew it had to be mine- it’s SO me. I am fairly certain you will see me in this all summer long.

Decision: Keep

Hailey23 Kodi Jersey Maxi Dress $78

I do love this but I also just bought a maxi dress right before Easter and don’t feel the need to add another floral maxi to my closet right now.

Decision: Return

Renee C Arlette Skirt $54

Another item I was skeptical about but I did like it. That said I wouldn’t get enough wear out of it.

Decision: Return

All in all, this fix was a win! When I have to struggle making decisions of what to keep and what to send back, it’s a good one! What do you think of my items this month? Love ’em? Hate ’em? Am I making the right choices?

Three Things To Know Before You Go: A Year with Frog and Toad at Children’s Theatre Company

This past weekend my little girls and I had the opportunity to attend opening night of A Year with Frog and Toad at Children’s Theatre Company. We are huge fans of both CTC and Arnold Lopel’s Frog and Toad books so we were pretty excited.

In true form, Children’s Theatre Company did NOT disappoint. It was a fantastic show- complete with plenty of bouts of laughter. I’d recommend the show to all families with children of all ages- both my three year old and my eight year old enjoyed it immensely.

Here’s a few things to know before you go:

  1. There’s no frog or toad costumes. The two main characters are played by two adult men who do an incredible job, physical humor an all, as Frog and Toad. But beware, they aren’t walking around in a frog or toad costume. It’s a ‘use your imagination’ sort of play. [You’ll recognize company actor Reed Sigmund as Toad and as always, he plays his role in a completely believable way. He makes a great toad!]

  1. The Snail who delivers the mail absolutely steals the show. Every scene he was in, he owned the stage and the audience was fully engaged with his part of the story.

  1. There are just FIVE people in the cast which is really fun to see them transform from birds to turtles to snails and more.

As always, plan on arriving early. There are plenty of Frog and Toad mementos to choose from in the gift shop if that’s your thing. We always pre-order our admission treats so that we don’t have to wait in line. Cookies are $3.

The show is about an hour and 45 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.

A Year with Frog and Toad runs until June 18th and tickets are available right here.

On Feeling Tender

I always feel extra tender this time of year. Like the wind could bring tears to my eyes. Two weeks ago now my mom would have turned 60 and three days from now my Miss E turns 8. It’s this strange pull between sad and happy, happy and sad. Nine years ago now, nearly to […]

My TENTH Stitch Fix

My TENTH Stitch Fix came last month. TEN! I can’t believe it! If you remember I wasn’t at all impressed with my last fix. As a matter of fact, it’s the one and only time I’ve returned the entire fix. I had kind of forgotten I had another one scheduled until it was at my […]
