It was a gorgeous Saturday last weekend in Chicago! I got the kids dressed and we headed to Old Orchard. Both of my kids are big fans of art and enjoying making any craft they can get their little hands on! They were excited to find out they would be making their own journals at the Gap for #ShineOn Saturday! They each chose their favorite paper for the cover of the journal. They picked out stickers, put their name on it and than had fun drawing pictures and writing in their journal. Mia just started the first grade and she is very excited to have her own journal that now is on her dresser in her room.

Since we were in one of my favorite stores, I took the time to do some shopping for fall. I was excited to see that Gap is now carrying the cutest Puma shoes! I didn't buy a pair for the kids yet but they are on my "Must Buy" list!

On Saturday August 25th stop by the Gap in Oakbrook Center to make an animal character badge!
