Summer has been a whirlwind for us! As I am sure it has been for you. We are still in Utah. Kevin came out to visit us for the weekend and it was so great to reconnect! We stayed in Park City with the kids at the Woldorf Astoria. Our friends came up one night and got to swim and enjoy the s’mores they offer to all the guests around the fire. My friends son said “they offer PUBLIC s’mores here every night!” We joked that “Public s’mores” is the answer to world peace. Really tho if you haven’t been to Utah before I highly recommend it and staying in Park City is a treat. The girls and I rode the ski lift to the Alpine Slide that we got to slide down, while Finn and Kevin rode the ski lift to the top and back down. Did I mention so much swimming?! Finn had private swimming lessons- cried the first day and the second. Kevin said it is like we pay someone to drown out kid for 30 minutes while screaming “mommy”. Yes, it was sad. But a necessary evil. Last day no tears and able to put his face under and get to the side of the pool safely! Remember that nursery we made over in two days for my sister-in-law? If you missed it you can see it all HERE! And meet the little sweetie who gets to sleep here every night! Are your ovaries aching?? He is so darling. And I had not seen their dresser in person! It didn’t come in while I was in town doing the makeover. I actually thought I sent the company I was working with the gray version of this dresser but must have just sent the link and it was white in the link. We still love it in the room and it probably really works better because it is a small space and the white helps it to blend in better. AND after seeing it in person I really want it! (THIS Dresser reminds me of it, their original one is discontinued).

This kitchen from Boxwood Avenue has all of my favorite things! Contrast, classic white cabinets, texture and fun!
I went thru Nordstrom Anniversary Sale by category. Pages of deals. I was mostly impressed with their Home Decor! Really so many great pillows that had butterflies growing in my tummy excited for fall! All the rich colors and textures are just my favorite thing. I noticed that most of their pillows come with down inserts! That is rare. So make sure to factor that in when you look at the prices. And be aware of sizes. I only selected pillows that were 22″ or bigger.
Click on an image to shop it! And also picked out a couple of my favorite clothing pieces from the sale-

My now 24 year old was a screamer during her first swim lessons. It was hard for me not to go “save her”. Her teacher was a man who had worked as a lifeguard in his teens along the beaches/lake in Chicago, and had pulled out so many kids who didn’t know how to swim and some who didn’t make it. His mission in life became to make sure kids learned how to swim and be safe, and she eventually spent 6 years of her life doing the same!
I bought some of the pillows. I can’t wait to get them!!
Love it! Do you recall where the crib sheet is from? I want one!
