August came and went in the blink of eye. We are already into September and getting ready for fall! I keep seeing everyone post about being back to school and the start of pumpkin season coming. Ahhh!!! Even though this month went by extremely quick, we do have some August family favorites that we wanted to share.

family favorites for the month of august for dad, mom, and four little onesMy four-year old has started to love talking about this post each month, and she loves for me to read the comments to her. So make sure you leave our little E a note below. She would love it!

August Family Favorites

Me: I have been loving the cut out trend this month. From clothing, to shoes, to bags, give me all of the cut outs! This cage cut-out waist swimsuit from Amiclubwear is the perfect piece to close out the summer with:)IMG_5475-1

My favorite wine this month has been from the Traveling Vineyard and it is called Heist Cabernet Sauvignon (Read review here). I discovered it when I hosted my wine event in July and I have been loving it ever since.

The Hubs: Mr. Merlot has been obsessing over his JORD wood watch. He really loves watches to begin with, but this one is extra sleek and more his style than your typical metal watch. His favorite beer this month has been Stone Ipa. Again, another hoppy beer for the hubs.IMG_5162

4 Year Old: Our oldest has been absolutely loving school this month! It was her very first time ever going to school, and she is now obsessed. When I asked her what favorite thing was, she immediately answered with “my new class!”. Sweet girl. She is growing up so quickly. Her favorite thing was using her Disney Princess backpack. Read this post on preparing your child for preschool here.

IMG_4570Almost 3 Year Old: Our sweet little “baby G”, as we like to call her, has been into little toy figurines so much. She just sits off in her own little world and loves to play house, line them up in a parade, all kinds of imaginative things. I love watching her and the way her little mind works. Find toys like the Disney Classic Plastic Figurines here.

Twinsies: This month, the twins have been loving having their own little space. Our twin girl thinks she is a queen on her throne in this fluffy chair (shop similar Marshmallow Children’s Furniture Dora Chair here), and our boy twin pretty much climbs into anything… literally. Drawers, boxes, anything he can squeeze himself into. IMG_4539
