It’s that time again: Switching our capsules.
To be honest, the boys didn’t need many new items, a couple more sweatshirts (replacing t-shirts) and another pair of warm athletic pants. They were done.
The girls and mom on the other hand? We had a few more holes to fill in. FFTC partnered with Arc’s Value Village to bring you a real-life look at thrift shopping for your capsule wardrobe. In doing this, Arc’s Value Village provided us a 20% discount for our purchases. No other compensation was exchanged, and boy, do I have things to share with you!
This is going to be fun.
November is around the corner which means “We Can Give Back Month” is almost here! Woohoo! Read More
I grew up in Minnesota– all over. I was born in Moorhead, moved to Fergus Falls area, lived on the North Shore, and lived in western Minnesota. Now, as you know, I am a part of the masses that make up the Twin Cities.
I love Minnesota. I have a Minnesota pride that is hard to beat, and I am passing that along to my kids. Although with a dad from and two sets of grandparents currently live in Wisconsin, they have a strong affinity for the neighbor to our East.
And honestly, I am okay with that.
Despite that fact, some of my best memories come from my growing up years in Morris, Minnesota. Read More
If you’ve been reading FFTC for any length of time (even just a couple of weeks), you probably have figured out that we love good children’s literature. And I’m not talking about Little Golden Books (although they have their place–in our house we have a place for approximately 200 Little Golden Books, but that story is for another time). We love classics. We new releases. We love bookshops. We love libraries.
We love authors. Read More

Stages Theatre Company always makes me happy, but rarely does it take my breath away. The Little Mermaid, Junior did just that. With Dash on my lap, we gaped at the scenery and all the oceanlife included in the show.
It’s a professional show done mostly by young actors and my kids loved it. Some characters were slightly less believable than others, but it didn’t matter. The whole story is a fairytale. It’s all about magic and fun! We enjoyed every minute of it. Me and my kids ranging in age from 5-10.
It’s a great story for both boys and girls! (just ask my reluctant 7 year old son who didn’t want it to end)
The Celts are taking on the Templars and we’re invited to watch. Read More
