'Tis the Season to Shop with Clay Terrace Mall
The longer I play Santa, the wiser I get when it comes to Christmas shopping. Gone are the days where I scurry from mall, to plaza, to store, to everywhere in between...like you, Mama ain't got time for that! No ma'am! I hit up places where I can tackle ALL THE THINGS in one fell swoop. Enter Clay Terrace Mall.

Back To School With vineyard vines clothing
School is well underway for our crew and one of our absolute favorite pastimes in prep for a new school year is….BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING #shocker. Thankfully for the Chappo Crew, vineyard vines is serving up a heaping dose of fresh back to school threads for the entire family…..Baby Calvin included
Ladies Love the Dyson V8 Vacuum
I remember when December hit last year, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted from Johnny. It wasn't a gorgeous piece of jewelry, or some fabulous handbag...oh no no no...it was something W A Y more fabulous. Something I would use every day. Something that would make my life a helluva lot easier. Something I wanted for over a year. And thankfully for me, Santa delivered, because I finally got my brand new Dyson V8 Vacuum from Ebay
Outdoor Movie Night with Hedgehouse
Put this on your summer To Do List.....snag some Throwbeds, a gaggle of kiddos, popcorn, any and every Haribo gummy you can get your mitts on (#cokebottles), blankets, a projector (we rented ours from Ace Party Rental here in town), and do an OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT STAT!! Gang, hands down my favorite night of this summer so far
The Summer Dining
When we were building our home, we knew very early on we wanted a wrap around porch. Since moving into our home, our screened in porch has quickly become one of our favorite spots to hang as a family. We’ve already outfitted the space with a daybed swing and seating area, but we also wanted a space where we could dine al fresco, and do so without breaking the bank. Here’s the deal, gang, I’m gonna let you in on a secret well known fact…….building a house is a costly little undertaking. Last I checked our property didn’t have a money tree on it, which is why I knew this little area was PERFECT for that high low mix. And lucky for us, walmart.com has totally elevated their home game
Little Ladies, Ivivva by Lululemon
Coming ‘atcha live with my two main gals. Now that we’re in the thick of summer, there’s truly no place the three of us would rather be than romping around outdoors. Whether it’s walking the Zionsville Rail Trail, hitting up the park, going on a run with Chaser in prep for cross country season, watching Roo practicing her gymnastics and dancing, or just kicking it around town….ivivva by lululemon is no doubt our favorite active wear threads of choice
6 Month Old Baby Boy Update
This little critter is on the brink of his 8th month next week, so proooooooobably high time I do a little 6-7 month update--Lordy be, third child probs am I right?! Lots of changes for Baby Calvin these past few months and if I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times....T H I S is my absolutely favorite stage. The preciousness is just at an all time high and I swear there's a new discovery every day
Dads Love His Lids Hat
It’s not often I’m able to get this guy in front of the camera, but in honor of Father’s Day, there’s no better time to have his handsome mug on the blog! When Johnny’s not working, he loves to keep it casual yet still pulled together. He’s a guy after my own heart, because like his wife, he loves a good casually polished look with some sneaks. And he knows I LOVE him in a HAT
The Tween Nest
As I'm teeing up this post, I'm realizing Chase should've totally been today's author. Because no one can convey the love of her new bedroom better than she. If y'all may recall on move in day we only had her Bed from Birch Lane outfitted and well, based on her reaction (read: sheer and utter squeal worthy excitement), she was and still is simply over the moon
39 Things About Me
Happy Happy Easter, Gang! And April Fool's Day, which just so happens to be this gal's Bday!! In honor of my last year in my 30's (Holy Moses), let's share 39 random tidbits you may not know about me! Cheers to a wonderful day with your crew--and to my fellow Fools--Happy Bday...something tells me 39 is going to be one for the books!
Calvin's Four Months
Happy F O U R M O N T H S to our big boy! I'm not going to dwell (read: SOB) on the fact that this time has truly flown by and I wish it would come to a screeching halt, but rather focus on all of this sweet boy's fun facts, milestones, and how he truly has brightened our family in ways we could've never imagined
The Sleep Trainer
"Calvin wants to sleep just like you and me. He just doesn't know how. We have to teach him." And it was with those words that I knew, Ashley was going to help us sleep train our boy.
The 2017 Highlights Reel
So I think it's pretty safe to say that 2017 will go down as one of my best years yet! Not quite sure how 2018 can even begin to hold a candle to the birth of our sweet little bundle, John adopting the bunnies, or mom and pip making the cover of Redbook! It was a whirlwind of year but in the most beautiful way imaginable
Our Adoption Story: We Are the Chappos
Man, gang, this one overwhelms me right from the start. Probably more so than Calvin's Birthstory, our Wedding Day, or any of my other personal posts. I'd say it's because October 18th was a day I never really thought imaginable I suppose. For those of you that have followed s + s for sometime, you're well aware of our journey...and you've been supportive as hell throughout it all. But for those of you that are new, I won't dwell on the past, but the gals and I have overcome our fair share of heartache in recent year's past
