Once a month, we send you an email with a handful of things to help make the month ahead a Certified Pretty Good Time.
What We're Bingeing
This month, we're all about finding win-wins with what we're watching with our husbands. For Julie, it'sUntoldon Netflix—the perfect mix of sports for Dean and documentary for her. For Irene, it's theJustifiedreboot on FX. Deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens is irresistible to all.
...the collegiate collection fromSmocked Auctions. With college football (finally!) returning this weekend, make sure your tiniest belles and beaus have their game day best ready for Saturdays. We're especially loving the Smocked Bishop Dresses.
Currently Saving Our Sanity
Irene has recently become one of those annoying people whopreps fruit ahead of time and stores it in mason jars in the fridge. Still unclear if this actually makes fruit last longer, but early returns indicate it's well worth it to have an aesthetically pleasing fridge and an accompanying sense of moral superiority. Pro tip: Useplastic lidsfor your mason jars to avoid rust buildup on lids and jars.
Something for Mom
If you're lucky enough to have a chance for a cup of coffeeafterthe kids have left for school, make it a special one. We loveCopper Cow Coffeefor an easy Vietnamese-style pour-over at home, or invest in anAeroccinofor cafe-quality foam.
It may still be approximately 98 degrees here in the South, but Fall. Is. Coming. You heard it here first:2023 Boo Basketswill launch on September 26. Mark your calendars—quantities are extremely limited for this release!
Yours in good enough parenting,
Wife, mama of 2 delightful hooligans, gifting enthusiast, and big fan of color.
