sentences of summer

James absolutely LOVES the bathtub; So we took him to the pool today! 

First off, I need to invent newborn size swim diapers...

...seriously? This is ridiculous!

Second, the Community Center pool is indoors. 

"Brilliant!" I thought. 

"He won't be out in the sun and we can just enjoy ourselves!"


While James DID look super cute in him cloth swim diaper...

...the pool was WAY to cold for our little man! He didn't enjoy it. At all.

So I snapped a few cute photos of my men... our money back...

...and went home! :)

30x30 | Day 1

I decided that I am going to post each week's outfits every WEDNESDAY. I am posting today's just for fun, because Wednesday's are very busy for our family! My first choices seem very routine to me, as I wear them often, but they are an outfit nonetheless! What did you wear today? Email me a picture to!

I am also challenging myself to do a new hair style from Kate of The Small things Blog. She has awesome tutorials that are quick and easy! Check 'em out!

Day 1

Have a happy day!

30 x 30 Challenge

I love to shop. I love to window shop when I can't afford to shop. I love the smell of malls, the hustle and bustle of other shoppers and I love to see new trends and try to make them myself, from consignment and thrift store finds. This challenge's origin is from Kendi at Kendi Every Day (if I am wrong, please let me know so I can give due credit!) This challenge is simple. You choose 30 items and make outfits for 30 days. 30 x 30. I am doing this to challenge myself to shop in my own closet and to use what I have in new ways! It requires creativity and possibly a bit of boldness! Some of you might only have 30 things, while others may have a closet jam-packed full of things you don't wear. Either way, I challenge you to do this with me! If an entire month isn't for you, choose different parameters...7x4, 10x10..what EVER suits your fancy! :) I have posted my pieces below and will be starting the challenge tomorrow! I would love to see what you come up with, please email me paigetolle(at) and I will post your photos as well. Get creative. Be Bold!

I am going to post outfits to the blog in a weekly post, but there is a good chance my facebook or Instagram will be updated daily, so follow me! I look forward to seeing your outfits!

Have a Happy Day!

Earlier this week, we made a trip back home for James's two month appointment & shots and for my postpartum check up. This trip just confirmed even more how much James is growing and changing. A few short weeks ago when we moved to Minnesota, all our little man did was snooze in the backseat; he was careless and clueless to what we were doing and where we were headed, he just ate and napped. This is not the case any more! He was awake a lot of the time, which is nice to keep him on schedule. We have a great system going since implementing the Babywise technique and if he sleeps all day, then guess who gets to stay up all night!? Instead, He played with Geoffrey and continually pulled his blankie over his face, and every time we pull down the cover on his car seat to block the sun from his face, he hunches over trying to see out. It's Adorable.

There was a severe thunder storm while we were home, we received five inches of rain, which in turn, flooded the roads back to Minnesota. We had to take the scenic route through South Dakota, which I thoroughly enjoyed, minus the 55mph speed limit. (why on earth do we need to go 55 on straight roads? I miss my 70mph Montana highways! ;) James needed to eat so, we decided to make a pit stop at Nicollet Tower. After climbing the stairs, it is beyond obvious that our plan to start Insanity in September is necessary. My calves STILL hurt. Who has sore legs from climbing a few hundred stairs? I'm a sissy :) All in all, it was a great trip, I enjoyed taking the extra time with my little family of three and visiting somewhere we had never been before!

"Ya still there mom?" 

                                                    "Yes, son, mama is still coming with!" :)


...proof of "the chins" and that I survived and faced my fear of heights!

Have a Happy day!

2 Months

I can't believe James is two months already! Our lives have changed so much and we have learned how to operate on less sleep than I could ever imagine! At two months old, James:

- is smiley all the time and has the cutest giggle I have ever heard
- eats like a champ, weighing 10 lbs 2 oz
- still wears newborn size clothes
- loves his giraffe, Geoffrey
- his favorite times of the day are between 7-8 am and 7-8 pm
- has already visited 4 different states
- babbles non stop, especially when his daddy talks back to him
- loves to suck on his hands
- drools ALOT
- sleeps for 5-6 hours at night, and we are VERY thankful for that!






We love you Mr. J!
