Anyone else "married" to the swim team?

Last week pushed every swim team mom I know just about to the brink. There were 4 meets (A, B and relays), a pancake breakfast, and Family Fun Night in addition to the daily practices.

It's enough to drive a gal to bring concealed bevies to the pool.

Or take the Disney theme a little too far...

It's great exercise and I love the team spirit.

The Twofer are not 100% in love with it though.

They like it, they love doing it with their friends, they just don't love the meets.

Especially the ones that get us up at 6:30 am on a Saturday.

Here is how I capture the mood on Instagram.

"7:00 am Saturday morning #swimteam. @MichaelPhelps mother is a saint."


Whoa! Things have gotten a little slow around here!

It's been so long since I posted I think I have actual cobwebs on my blog!

The spam commenters are back in full force too. That's nothing you'll see but I see it on the back end in old posts and whatnot.

So where have I been?

Well, the end of the school year is always crazy with butterfly release parties and all that good stuff.

And Swim Team always keeps us busy from before school lets out when practice is every week night.

Then we went on vacation to the Jersey Shore like we did last year. (Remember the Bumpit photos?)

Then I played catch up with work...

But now I'm back, and ready to roll.

I have a few new things I'll announce in the coming weeks.

And a few headaches I'm sure to experience.

So what have YOU been up to?


Fashion Friday - Goodbye Summer Shoes including the Jimmy Choos

A few weeks ago I told you how surprised I was that The Mister actually knew what Jimmy Choo shoes were. Everyone wanted to know what was in that box! So, I've decided to show you in a quick post that also highlights the shoes I love to wear all summer long. (Relax boys, it's only 3 pairs so you can get through this post).

The Choos

My Jimmy Choos


These are hand-died slip-ons with a kitten heel and I love them. They are comfy, unique, colorful, and fun.

The flipflops

flip flops from Bali?

These I found at the Jersey Shore and they are solid wood which means they are actually pretty comfortable. Though the strap sometimes rubs - some of you may have seen me limping after day 1 of BlogHer parties!

The FIT Flops

FitFlops with shopped pedicure

I wear FitFlops EVERY SINGLE DAY in the Summer and while they are supposed to work your muscles more, I love them because I can walk forever and my feet don't hurt. I can walk through a Disney park and my feet never get tired! You Disney people know exactly what I mean.

(YES - I totally added pink dots to look like nail polish on this photo.)


Disclosure: all opinions expersses are my own and I was not given any of these shoes. Some links are affiliate links.

Outdoor Summer Toys and Games for Twins

I was recently checking out Amazon's collection of summer toys and decided we could use a few things to get us through the hot, sticky summer. Here are a few items that area perfect for families with multiples!


Water Shooters - Summer just isn't a party until someone gets their eye shot out....with water. These Super Soakers come in a Twin Pack for just $16.99



Double Slip ‘N Slide - simply put, it's more fun to race while you are sliding. This Slip n Slide has two lanes so there isn't any arguing over who gets to go first. Just GO!

Toobeez Ez - fort - A great summer twin activity is building a fort because they use creativity and teamwork rather than arguing skills. Toobeez are fantastic for inside and outside fort building. Plus, Toobeez can be used to build things you can use when you play with other toys like a house for dolls, a tunnel for cars and more. You might want to double-up on the Toobeez pack though for extra building material that will make larger projects possible.

 My Little Sandbox sets - OK, so these are just about the cutest things ever...themed table-top sandboxes that come complete with toys! Twins could totally survive sharing one but I'd love for each to have their own. That way they can share the toys but have the box and sand to themselves. You can choose from truck, dinosaur, and farm sets to mermaid and beach sets.

Have you found some great summer toys?
