• Mini Break


    We’re taking a mini break today with Edie and Dot at my new favorite spot in downtown Oakland, Blue Bottle Coffee. It seems to be on the way home from all of our afternoon so I’m always finding an excuse to stop in and grab a drink and snack.  Come follow along on our outing…

    Blue Bottle Coffee is housed in the historic W.C. Morse building with huge glass windows with high ceilings and vintage tile. They serve delicious drip coffee (I’m personally obsessed with their mochas), and other yummy baked goods like poached eggs on toast, cookies, and savory waffles!


    Edie opted for a chocolate milk and a cookie of course, she has a serious sweet tooth like Jared. Our new favorite line of hers is when we asked her what she wanted to drink for dinner (but phrased it “what do you want in your cup?”), she responded nonchalantly, “Oh, just candy”. We laughed for a full ten minutes.  Kohl’s has some really cute, easy pieces for warm weather coming up like this SONOMA Zip Zag dress Edie is wearing (only $16) with the Rugged Bear Toddler Girls’ Huaracha. These sandals are classic, and Edie hasn’t taken them off since we got them!



    Dot’s been getting great at solids lately, so I gave her little pieces of their delicious waffle and some parfait. She attacked it like a pro! She’s got on an easy summer dress too. Kohl’s Jumping Beans Baby Girl Cuffed Dress comes in a bunch of different patterns and colors with sweet bloomers to match. It’s only $10 too! Bloomers and a top are the simplest baby outfit for summer. Also, I’m kind of obsessed with Dot’s Tommy Tickle Mary Jane crib shoes. Love the classic vintage style of them.


    I’m loving this SONOMA Crosshatch Jean Jacket I’m wearing. Oversized and perfect for transitioning from spring to summer.
