inspiration monday: siblings

the inspiration


megan bird



jacket ~ Target
boots ~ b. (a resale shop)
tights ~ Marshalls
skirt, tank ~ thrifted

nora bird



coat ~ Kohls
boots ~ Shoedazzle
tights ~ Target

We took the kids to Target on Saturday, both armed with $15 in gift cards. As they were browsing the toy aisles for goodies, Henry somehow managed to drop his card on the floor, kick is as he bent over to pick it up, and it slid into this dark abyss between the shelving and the floor. $15 down the drain. Not being the first time he has lost a Target gift card, we told him "too bad, so sad" he was out of luck. 

As we are talking to Henry about being more careful and responsible with money, sweet Eva walks over to him and hands him her $5 gift card. It was such a sweet gesture, it made me feel so good as a mom. Henry got the smallest bag of Legos, and Eva got an Olaf necklace, and we were all happy.

How was your weekend?

  10. ah! i remember reading about the last gift card tale, and it's funny how it happens again. i would have duck taped that gift card to my arm and now let go until i reached the register. but then, i suppose, eva would never have been able to swoop in and save the day with that great big heart <3

  15. That is the sweetest story! reminds me of when Brielle set her Toys R Us gift card down in the toy aisle, forgot it and didn't realize it was gone until about half an hour later when we were going to check out and Kaden found it for her. I love seeing my kids interact with each other! So sweet! You both look lovely as usual! Stripes and plaid--two of my faves!

  19. I think it's a boy/male thing. My brother, son, and husband all have lost something of value like keys, wallet, money. And what a caring sister. You're doing something right!

  20. That is the cutest thing ever!! At our house it's my daughter that loses everything and my middle son always gives...the youngest pretends he didn't see ;)

  21. I am craving a plaid sheath this Holiday season. Your Eva is a sweetie and I must say I love Nora's Plaid Coat, also. I own similar boots to hers, on my current post actually (I am wearing them).
