A couple of weeks ago, Evie called Sarah with a pretty outlandish proposal: “Want to do National Novel Writing Month with me?” NaNoWriMo, as it’s known, is an annual event in which writers from around the globe commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days. That’s about 200 pages to tackle, starting November 1. If you’ve been listening to our podcast, Best Friend Banter, you heard us talk about trying to balance full-time motherhood with writing in our “Domesticity + Dreams” episode. Writing a novel in 30 days with young kids running around won’t be easy, but we’re going for it! We’re going to…

Woohoo!! It’s time for another super generous LulaRoe giveaway!!! By now, if you’re an Evie+Sarah reader, you know how much I love Lularoe. Super comfortable, stylish and affordable…I’m a big fan of the brand. Especially because they celebrate women of all shapes and sizes. Today we’re talking about the Cassie skirt. Are you a pencil skirt person? As a mom of three young kids, I’m definitely not. Or so I thought. When I first started buying Lularoe last year, I thought the Cassie skirt, which is a stretchy pencil skirt, would be the one item I wouldn’t purchase. How could…

They come slowly. in the first few days of school, that time when you’re super excited to see anything in your child’s folder, so you don’t really pay attention to what it’s asking. We still need extra tissues, ziplock bags, pencils! We’d so appreciate any extra you have!! So you send them in. You’ve got some extra. No problem. And then, a few days go by, and you get the first fundraiser packet in the folder. Selling cookie dough, popcorn, donuts, magazines…whatever. And there’s a sweet note attached, saying that they don’t want the kids going door to door. But…

Ladies, you know that most of the time, I focus my Bullet Journal on the practical, NOT the bells and whistles that turn so many busy moms off to Bullet Journaling. The honest truth is that keeping a Bullet Journal doesn’t require artisitic ability or even creativity. But…if you happen to possess either one of these two, your Bujo can provide a beautiful space to let your creative juices flow. Below, I’m highlighting ten of the Bullet Journal gurus who inspire me to make my own journal beautiful every now and then. Kara Benz of Boho Berry     Dee…

Half the country is talking about Hurricane Matthew. Where did it go, when will it go away, how much damage did it do? For the last week, we’ve been holding our breath all over the eastern side of the US, wondering where it would go next. I’m fascinated with weather, so when a storm like this comes around, I am all over it. I like to know all the what-ifs and the percentage of particular situations. These storms can be scary. There’s a lot of hype and you don’t know what to expect until it happens. And there’s wind. There’s…

This week’s vice presidential debate ended up being much spicier that most of us expected. What should have been a carefully curated discussion between two seasoned politicians ended up being a barrage of insults and interruptions, with a few policy points scattered in between. One of the most shocking statements to come out of the debate centered on the criticism police face in light of recent shootings. When asked, “Do we ask too much of police officers in this country?” Pence responded: “The Fraternal Order of Police… hear[s] the bad mouthing, the bad mouthing that comes from people that seize upon…
