Flannel Shirt, iSanctuary Jewelry and A Reader

Princess Sparkles is learning to read.
She slowly sounds out words and can even read an entire book.
The only thing is everytime she says the word "peas" or "but," she laughs. 
Meanwhile, Pigtails wants a pet, more specifically a bunny.
I told her we already gave her a baby brother.

BLACK TANK, GRAY SKIRT - Alternative Apparel

Monday's Inspiration - Mary Kate Olsen

Today's Inspiration Monday from Two Birds is a flannel and skinnies.  I couldn't quite pull off Mary Kate's look so I did my own version with a mullet skirt and this fabulous new iSanctuary necklace I bought from my friend's store, "Share and Do Good."  The necklace and the bracelet are both made by survivors of human trafficking.

Princess Sparkles reads to Camouflage and Pigtails

Bucket and I visit Share and Do Good in Fullerton.

Princess Sparkles dresses up with her class for Thanksgiving

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (or if you don't live in the US then a nice weekend).  I love the holidays, especially with the kids.  They enjoy it so much which makes me enjoy it that much more.  It's contagious.  Like laughing when someone else thinks "peas" or "but" are hilarious.

Great inspired outfit - I love the mullet skirt!

I remember when my niece was learning to read and she had a book that said "hi" to everything -- and she just cracked up when she got to "hi, knee" : >

Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

Princess Sparkles is hilarious. I must say, I agree it's the end of the post, I was laughing at "peas" and "but" too!

I love how you and Bucket match!! My little on wanted a bunny too... I researched it and they are almost as labor intensive as a little brother!!

I live in my flannels in the winter. Layering them just looks effortlessly cool.
