Do you ever feel like buying in sets is the way of life as a mom? Because I can completely relate. I even take it a step further and try to buy as many twinning sets for me and Avenleigh as often as I can. I’m pretty sure there won’t be another time in her life that she will be as excited to match with me as she does right now. No shame in my game, I take full advantage of that!
Just recently she was needing some new shoes (never seen a kid grow so fast) and thought I would take a peek on the Famous Footwear site. SO many styles had my heart. I found the cutest Roxy shoes for the both of us. While I love to match with her, I still think its fun to choose our own type of style within the twinning process. She picked out her own color scheme and I did too.
I’m wearing the Roxy Bayshore Sneakers (white stripe) and Avenleigh chose the Roxy Bayshore (memory foam) slip on sneaker
We took our new kicks and tried them out at one of our favorite places. These moments, the ones that we get to plan out our outfits and our day are everything to me. Such a great bonding experience with her. Those are the sweet memories that I want to keep in my heart forever.
What didn’t we do this day? We danced like no one was watching. Frolicked through the gardens, and told secrets by the daffodils. It was THAT kind of day. These Roxy shoes are so comfortable by the way. The cushiony memory foam insole is life! When I think about it, we’ve been making memories with Famous Footwear shoes since I can remember. Way back in the day when they were toddlers and I would get matching sets for everyone. Clearly not much has changed, haha. I love the kind of place that I could walk into and find great styles for all of us. Famous Footwear has been part of our storytelling for years, and I’m thankful for that.
If your mama heart fills you with joy with you twin with your little, take a peek at some of Famous Footwear’s styles. They have a look for everyone! It’s a good excuse to make memories and grab some new shoes, just saying’.

It’s happening. Summer is slowly winding down. When you walk into stores now, you’re greeted by those back-to-school essentials. While, I’m mourning the slow fade of those summer days. I am excited for the kids to start their new school year. Especially with our youngest headed to kindergarten! AH! Seriously can’t believe that time is already here. She couldn’t be more stoked about it. We recently took a trip to Famous Footwear to find some shoes for that first day of school. Avenleigh couldn’t wait to pick out her own style.
I had a proud mom moment when she went straight or the glittery converse sneakers. I’ve done my job here, guys, ha! They are the cutest sneakers too. I love the material. They’re easy to wipe clean.
We had so much fun going up and down the aisles at famous footwear. Picking out shoes for ALL of us, because the deals. WOW. Just talking about their expectations of their first day back to school. Wondering if their bff’s would be in their same class this year. It was such a sweet experience. These are the moments I remember when I think about my childhood. Back to school shopping with my mom was always my favorite. It’ so wild when it comes full circle!
When you do that BTS shopping this year, seriously, make a stop at Famous Footwear. I’m not even close to exaggerating the deals they have going on right now. We walked out with name brand shoes for each one of us and paid half the price! I even asked the girl to repeat our total because I couldn’t believe it. True story. There’s a style for everyone- from NIKE to VANS, they’ve got it!
Happy shoe hunting!

We’re officially in back-to-school month around here! I’m not going to pretend I’m all smiles and giggles over this. When summer comes to an end, its always a little gut wrenching having to switch gears into ‘reality’. With that in mind, I always cling onto that silver lining. I love the clean slate of a new school year for the kiddos. I always wonder what their favorite subject will be this time around. What will they’ll excel in? How will they choose to express themselves?
As a family, the arts play a big role in our lives. Both my husband and I grew up in an atmosphere that helped nurture our penchant for music, painting (well, Tim not so much, HA), and so on. We definitely know the importance of that freedom to express ourselves through art. Naturally, we have always encouraged our children to do the same.
I am so excited to be partnering with Minnetonka on their ‘back-to school give back’ campaign (in collaboration with Lindsay Stewart). Both Minnetonka and Lindsay Stewart of Free Range Mama collaborated on a mommy & me hand painted collection that celebrates young imaginations and the people who help nurture them. The neatest thing about this collaboration was not only do we get to see a fun new twist on those beloved moccs but a portion of the proceeds will go towards funding classroom projects in partnership with DonorsChoose.org
This is such a wonderful way to give back to our children and empower them to express themselves! Also, you could always use a fun new pair of Moccasins 🙂
Make sure to check out this absolutely amazing project, join us in making a splash!
