Summer weekend travels

Slow down summer!  Though it has been 3 plus weeks since school ended, just the thought of packing away our summer styles and prepping for the cold scares the hee bee gee bees out of me. 

We’ve been taking it as slow as we can between summer camp and our weekend getaways we are soaking up all of the sun we can to fulfill our vitamin D needs. 

With 3 kids in tow we planned to visit some historical sites within driving distance. An 8-10 hour drive may sound like much but we’ve survived 16; now that’s serious. We chose Saratoga/Lake George as our first weekend getaway. We usually visit Martha’sVineyard  but decided to go with a group of our family members and learn about upstate NY. The kids couldn’t get enough of the horses at Bennington Farms, Martha’s Creme for ice cream, Congress park’s Carousel, of course the lake and did I mention the ice cream 🍦. 

As if that adventure wasnt enough we were brave enough to do it again….and many more times to come of course. But, traveling down south to VA to visit family was both nostalgic and educational once again. 

We stopped at chincoteague beach where the wild horses run and the famous story of misty originated.  The kiddies enjoyed one beautiful horse after another with an added touch of beach of course. We enjoyed our stay at a quaint Refuge Inn…. super kid friendly; just what we like!

Summer Days

Summer days are meant to be spent at one of the best places on earth… the beach. 

We love going to the beach to 

-collect seashells 

– talk about mermaid landing rocks 

– build Sand castles 

– read books 

We hope your Independence Day festivities include some time by the sea

What are some of the things that you like to do on the beach? 

Nursery for Boys

Living in a Dolls world for the last 5 years lead me to feeling like there wasn’t any hope in style in a boys life…especially when decorating a room.  Instead of hiring a designer or just going with the verrrry boy themed options in stores; I chose a style that was created by his name.  

Kenneth Sebastian aka BASH is destined to be a classy cowboy in mama’s eyes. Hey it helped! 

With the theme of bash’s nursery coming from his name as a start; next step was incorporating color.  Blues, grays and of course neutrals are always safe for your home.  As a matter of fact neutrals were used in V & K’s nursery 5 years ago; which lead to the reuse of their crib and crib and bumper set being used for their younger brother.  When designing his nursery a sisters touch was needed; so the girls used scooting paper of their own to add art work and color….which became The highlight of the nursery.

Here’s our boy nursery and the most scrumptious part is that baby!!

Lemons to lemonade

Hey!

Today I thought I’d share some fun pics that include a bump date and how much the girls are excited to be becoming big sisters…as well as how humbly blessed I am to be on this journey in life. 

When Twindollicious started it all came to me at a time where I knew there was a fun message to share with many people about twins.  I wanted to share our personal experience as well as some fun facts that most twins experience in their lives.  I knew that there was a message to share but didn’t expect to be helping families; sibling bonds and others on the path to creating stories or businesses of their own. As a business; I can say Twindollicious has developed from fun.  Whether we are enjoying collaborations with others or feeling creative… It’s all wrapped up into one lifestyle. 

Now almost 3 years later a life changing experience has come along with all of these opportunities. We’re adding a little boy to meet the world of Twindollicious and couldn’t be more anxious and excited! 

As I enter the last trimester of pregnancy our calendar fills with meetings and deadlines that needed to be fulfilled…. And heck I’ll humbly do so.  Because prior to having a voice to share stories on sibling bonding, confidence, writing, and the life of an independent mom-preneur there was a question of ….”ok I love children, they like me , I love to help people; now how can I add my life skills and knowledge of behaviors to allow everyone to share their story”. 

We will be sharing talks at domestic violence seminar, attending a woman’s entrepreneur conference and sharing some goodies at a vintage gallery within the next couple of weeks and can’t wait to share details with everyone.

Exercise their minds during spring break

Spring break is here and so is the Spring issue of Multiplicity Magazine. I had the honor of collaborating with this awesome editorial once more and thought it would be helpful while the kiddies are at home. Exercise the mind and body of your children by attending a gym class, playgroup or simple at home activities that will give them a minute of instruction that stretches into 4 minutes focus time.  The article topic focuses on the popular diagnosis of children with ADHD. However research shows that all children engaged in mindful exercise enhances their discipline to focus.  On that note….. I hope you enjoy this article and the fun activities you may have planned for your littles while they enjoy their time off https://issuu.com/twiniversity/docs/multiplicity_spring2016_single_/1

About Two Girls

As we say hello to 2015 we begin to reflect on our goals, what we have done to achieve them and what we plan to do to continue accomplishing them. When this editorial about TwinDollicious and our personal story was featured in CupCake Magazine I couldn’t appreciate it more. It clearly stamps our journey and fuels fire to cross off those future goals as we continue to achieve them.

As the girls are now 4 years old and realize what we have been doing all this time. I now hear them say “we are TwinDollicious sisters” ~ and my heart melts, on how much they love each other so.
