WELove Art

We will pop up on some art! The fam and I love to be apart of and decipher the beauty of experimental art. The Hirshhorn blessed us today with Ann Hamilton’s What Absence is Made Of. Also not to be missed is the work of Ai Wei Wei. Kids and adults will love the powerful Lego art and the wallpaper pieces make for great conversations. Get there before 2018!

Another favorite piece on display is called “Five Day Forecast”….. this will be a little scavenger hunt… Find it and let me know how you felt.

Halloween 2017

Last week after school Halloween began for our family! I picked up Princess Elena of Avalon and we head right over to NOMA to enjoy a Pumpkin Palooza!

We have been attending for the last few years and it’s amazing how this community event has grown tremendously in attendance numbers!

Next up… we enjoyed some weekday funnin at Catholic University! Both kids were official NASA astronauts ( it was so cold baby boy didn’t get to show off his shirt…. but he did trick or treat…. for me 😜 because I mean let’s be honest…. I can’t let my precious baby eat candy yet!) The kids had a blast! The students worked hard and were so kind to the attendees! They served pizza and snacks, had a trick or treat trail with fun costumes all around. Tons of games and activities, face paint and two moon bounces on a large field that was highly decorated for all to enjoy! We will definitely be back next year!

Three days into Halloween and it’s time to hit the Halloween streets! Crowded per usual! Fun costumes and a bucket full of goodies.

Are anyone else’s kids obsessed with The Descendants Movie? Liv/Uma was pumped to get all suited up and debut her outfit!

The weekend was also filled with parties cue: Beyoncé “We Like to Party” ….. and

Halloween has not even officially arrived!

We explored the opening day of the Folklife Festival yesterday on the National Mall and it was a great time! Pack snacks, a blanket and make a day of it.   

                  

               

Learning how girls as young age six start building bridges for their tribe using natural fibers was stellar!

We Love…Free Nail Polish

So a few months back in Liv’s Citrus Lane Box we received a dark purple Juliep polish “Gabrielle” perfect for the fall! Me and my mini enjoy polishing our nails and just can’t have enough colors so when I ran across a deal to get FREE polish I had to share! This polish not only leaves your nails looking flawless (no thin streaky polish here) it also omits 4 of the nasty carcinogens normally found in nail polishes.
Coupon Code: FREEBOX
Act fast as I’m unaware how long this deal will last! I just paid $3.99 for s/h
