A new look for Prose & Company!

I'd like to introduce the new look of Prose & Company!! What do you think?? I'm constantly switching things up around my house, so why not mix it up on the blog too? I love the fresh new look!

None of this could be possible if it weren't for an amazing & beautiful woman in my life, my multi-talented, cousin Tabitha Kidman! A huge thanks to her for seeing my vision through & for creating something so cute, simple and chic! Tabitha is such an inspiration and I'm so incredibly blessed to have her in my life...even if there's 2,000 miles between us, she's like a sister and I adore her. Thank you again Tabitha for working on this for me! Your love and encouragement means the world to me! 

If you haven't already, check out her blog here & check out her beautiful nursery art in her Inspired By Giving Etsy Shop! Go on, check it out & order some custom nursery art!!!! 

I'd love to hear what you think!

Toddler Movie Date

We'll have 5 Kid's Popcorn baskets please!?!??

One of our local movie theaters, Ybor Muvico, offered free family-friendly movies all summer long during their, Summer Film Festival . The free movies played in the mornings, a few days a week for all different ages, giving families plenty of choices to go to the movies with out putting a big dent in the wallet!

Thanks to my beautiful pal, Shauna, for sharing the news of this great program, we picked a 'toddler-friendly' feature & planned a fun day for our little tots! We took the kids to the movie in the morning, ate lunch, and then took a trolley ride with the kiddos. We chose, "Clifford's Really Big Movie" for the kids to see that morning. Clifford the Big Red Dog, popcorn, 5 kids 3 and under & a 9 month old baby sibling, oh boy....Here we go!

Here's a look at our fun day at the movies with 5 toddlers!
Moms couldn't stop giggling to snap a picture! :) 
The kids all did great during the movie! It was a first-time-movie for a few of these cuties & they were happy as could be! Who wouldn't be with a belly full of popcorn & friends to join them playing musical chairs in the seats & running in the aisle?? 

Trolley Time

After lunch, we bought tickets for the in-town trolley with the kids. If you haven't ridden the trolley or it's been a while, check out my previous post here where I share our re-discovery of the Teco Street Car Trolley. It's super fun and air conditioned, perfect for a Summer day!

The kids were so excited! Laughing and giggling, but also fighting over the window seat or because someone wasn't giving enough space...Clearly, we were nearing nap time! :) As you can see, there weren't many other passengers & plenty of space! LOL


By the end of our fun-filled day, we had a bunch of worn out kiddos & tired mommies too, but everyone had a great time! For more info on the Summer Film Festival, be sure to click here and look for a Muvico in your area!

As always, thank you for reading my blog! xoxo, Natassja
