I'm a stay at home mama living in PDX with the hubs Chris, our two boys and two cats. We are living in (and slowly fixing up) our first house, a midcentury ranch. Jesus has captured my heart, and I am so thankful!
This little blog is mostly about our adventures as a family of four, with the possibility of a recipe or craftiness sprinkled in there.
Two things I am loving in our house right now are:
#1: our West Elm bedding
I know that you can find bedding in all different price ranges, but ever since I tried out West Elm's bedding I haven't gone back. We have multiple quilt sets, duvet covers and sheet sets from WE and haven't ever been disappointed. The materials they use are so comfy, and it's true that you get what you pay for.
I'm especially picky about my sheets and the way they feel on my bare skin...these jersey sheets feel like you are sleeping on your favorite t-shirt! Amazing!
You buy the bottom piece then you can get the different straps and change them out depending on what you feel like wearing.
What's even cooler than the way they look is who makes them:
These beautiful ladies (most of whom are believers) are from Uganda and make these sandals
"Sseko Designs is a not-just-for-profit enterprise that recognizes the power of business and responsible consumerism to support sustainable economic development, which in turn affects a country's educational, justice, and health care systems. The goal of Sseko Designs is two-fold: provide university tuition for these promising young women through a sustainable monthly income, while also contributing to the overall economic development of Uganda."
I was looking around the website and noticed that you can host House Parties, selling Ssekos. If I were to host a house party would you guys be interested in coming? I have no idea what it takes to host one but I thought I would see if people think these sandals are as awesome as I think they are.
Would you come?
PS: I know I said I would post pics of Bennett's room but I took some pictures but they didn't turn out well and we still have a few more things to hang up. I want to post about it once it is completely done so you get the full effect. Okay? Okay.
