The Items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview That I Can’t Wait to Get

Hi everyone, it is officially that time of the year…time for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!! I can’t help but get excited to check out the amazing deals they offer. While I did find a lot of items I’d love to snag this year for myself, there was also a ton for our home and the kids as well which is so fun! Here are the items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 preview that I cannot wait to get.

First, I wanted to share some loungewear pieces that are seriously a must-have. This tank top and shorts pj set is adorable and perfect for the summer months, and I also love these floral pajama pants – they are lightweight and the floral pattern is gorgeous {I have a bunch more comfy and cozy styles linked below!}

On to one of my favorite clothing pieces – dresses of course! This navy floral dress is stunning, it looks so chic and classy and would be perfect to pair with these nude square toe sandals. This colorblock floral dress is very unique and I feel like it can transition through many seasons which is always a bonus. It would look soo cute paired with some tan booties for the fall and would also look great with these tan suede mules for the spring! How pretty is this white pleated midi dress?! I definitely have my eye on this one, it’s such a feminine and flattering design and would be adorable styled with these pointed toe flats or a cute pair of pink slide-on sandals.

As for home items, I seriously can’t believe how good the deals are! From this retro pink toaster, the coziest blanket, this non-stick pan set, and lots of my favorite candle sets, they have so many great products on sale for really amazing prices. Love the idea of picking up some housewarming presents, or even Christmas presents to hold onto.

I’m also thinking about grabbing the kids a few staple items like this quilted puffer coat for Augustine. It would be perfect for fall! Are you planning on getting anything this year? I’d love to see any deals you find!

How We’re Planning for Back to School

July 28, 2020

Here are some cute outfits for kids! - M Loves M @marmar

How are we already thinking about back to school?! This summer has really flown by, and this homeschooling thing is completely new for us, so we’re getting a bit of a head start and I thought I’d share how we’re planning for this school year! I really want to make homeschooling as fun and feel as normal as possible, with all the learning tools, backpacks, books, crayons, and more that will make it feel like normal school. So keep reading to see how we’re getting back to school ready!

How We’re Planning for Back to School

I can’t believe summer is already starting to wind down and we are thinking about school! Matthew and I are preparing to homeschool Augustine due to the current circumstances as I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. This is totally new to me and I want to make learning at home a fun environment for the family. Just in case things may turn around and school will be in person, I found some great backpack sets for the kids! This backpack set comes with all your school day essentials; a cute lunch box, pencil pouch, and water bottle. Keeping a backpack filled with all your materials for the day is a great idea and might be something your little one looks forward to opening each day. I got this one for Augustine, although it’s slightly a little big for him. I thought it would be great to keep some of his dedicated school books in it, even at home. He feels like such a big kid with his backpack. It’s so cute!! Thinking this camo backpack might be a great one for him too so maybe he’ll have to swap with Matthew!

As for teaching at home, I wanted to stock up on all the typical classroom necessities like pencils, these ones are thicker for kids learning to write, crayons, erasers, scissors, lined paper, glue sticks and more! Walmart had practically everything I needed which made it so easy. I ordered online and the shipping was so fast, but depending on where you live you’ll probably see how great the selection is in store too. I definitely suggest some learning assisting tools like flashcards, letter tracing paper, critical thinking workbooks, and matching puzzle sets. Workbooks are also another great way to help keep kids busy and track their progress. Augustine loves to work in this Big Preschool workbook. It’s a great combination of being fun and also educational. This trace, color and cut workbook is perfect for kids learning how to use scissors and this site words book is super helpful with enforcing the basics. They can help really implement what you are teaching and a little extra practice is always great! I also want our at home classroom to have some fun hands on elements that Augustine would love! This large World map, fun learning tablet, classroom calendar, and responsibility chart are so cute and engaging ways to learn.

One thing I’m really going to rely on during our homeschooling is having a routine because I know that kids really rely on that. We’ll be getting started in the mornings after breakfast when I feel like Augustine has the best focus and attention. We’ll be saving our afternoons for outings related to what we’re learning {i.e. visiting local farms, aquariums, gardens, basically getting out in nature however we can}. I’m really excited for the opportunity to learn and grow with Augustine and I think it will be such a great fit for our family. If any of you are considering homeschooling, this book was very helpful and encouraging!
