Hope you all had a great, short week after the 4th! We are really leaning into summer this week and are obsessed with summery manicures, hats, and food. See everything we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
Growing up, our moms were ALWAYS ready for a last-minute birthday party with a stash of small prepared gifts “just in case.” Did anyone else’s mom always seem to have Bath and Body Works gift sets, Lisa Frank notebooks, or friendship bracelet kits at the ready? We always think of those standby gifts when we’re scrambling to put together a last-minute housewarming or birthday present (which has happened one too many times lately), so we’re taking a page out of Mom’s playbook and trying to be a little more prepared.
In partnership with our friends at Poppy & Quail (a mother-daughter duo themselves), we’ve put together a few grown-up gift kits so we can always be ready, look like we have our acts together, and impress a few moms along the way.

Instead of dwelling on all the weird/bad/annoying things that happened, I thought I’d pull together a list of questions to ask before hiring house painters, to help you all avoid some of my frustration.
Everyone ready for the holiday weekend?! We are!

See everything we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
My house painting is finally done! (I think… more on that next week.) I’m thrilled with the dark teal house paint color I chose: Sherwin Williams Seaworthy. I have started to completely forget that the house was ever lemon yellow, which is an ideal outcome for any painting project. It looks like it should have always been this color.Keep Reading
So Michelle is still working on those gym shoes, Robin is loving a piece of technology she never knew she needed, and Hannah can’t get enough of Everlane. See everything we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
If you’re anything like me, the thought of baking your own bread is terrifying and visions of flour covering every square inch of your kitchen is enough to not even try. I am here to tell you, however, that this is an easy homemade bread recipe that is really good and doesn’t take your entire day to bake. Win win!
Summer is officially here! It is a scorching 90+ degrees in Pasadena and Cleveland is battling sweltering humidity; so pick your poison. While we’re all searching for the coolest spot in the room, here’s our Summer Fashion Wishlist and what we’re daydreaming of wearing once we can put clothes back on our bodies. Keep Reading
