Friday Finds // 9.15.17

September 15, 2017

At home with this busy boy and sweet baby this morning while Ivy is at preschool. TGIF! This week went by so slow, probably because I’ve been SO looking forward to Saturday and the GARTH BROOKS CONCERT! Can’t wait!! What are you plans this weekend?!

So, I tooooootally have the shopping itch! You know when you’re done being preggo and you want like a WHOLE new wardrobe because you can finally wear normal clothes again but everything you have is like totally out of style because you haven’t worn it for the last year while you were preggo… yeah, I’m in that stage. So I totally have the itch! Sorry kids, no shopping for you, it’s all about Mama for now! :)

Loving all the new fall styles coming out, and as much as I LOOOOVE my favorite season summer, I’m actually saying that I’m ready for cooler days. It’s been so hot the last few days! Here are some of my favorites to shop right now!

Baby Faves

May 17, 2017

You’d think you have it all… after three kids, I mean, you’d think you have it all. Clothes, blankets, gear, e v e r y t h i n g baby. But there are always new things out there that I reaaaally just can’t resist! With each child, there has been that thing I really need (or let’s be honest… want) and just have to have.

With Ivy, it was the Ergobaby and JuJuBe diaper bag, I knew I had to have them!! Plus all of the cute Aden and Anais swaddles. Then with Leo, it was the Baby Bjorn so he could face in or out, super soft June and January swaddles, the UppaBaby Vista stroller so I could fit two kids in there, and of course the Solly Baby wrap, because I was actually going to do some baby wearing with him! And I did! A lot!

Now, with baby number three, I’m again finding things that I must have! Or just really want to try :) Some brands are new, some brands have been around for awhile, either way, I’ve seen them around and have always wanted them! So I’m stocking up with all my baby faves for our last babe! Here they are! And some things for Mama too :)


diaper bag // swaddle // swaddle set // sling // nursing cover // robe


Diaper bag – Starting with this diaper bag. I really do love my JuJuBe one, it’s super functional, stylish, and easy to use. But I have been eyeing these Fawn Design bags FOR-E-VER but could never get myself to splurge on one. A few months ago they had the blush bag 50% off because the manufacturer had the wrong label, or something, so they were selling them on discount. I was super excited, set my clock, and bought one the second they went on sale! I LOVE the look of it and I am so pumped to use it with this new baby!

Swaddle – Clementine Kids is a very new brand (isn’t the name adorable!!!) of swaddles and quilts and OH SO PRETTY. I love all of the pretty floral prints and they are super soft! So beautiful. I got the the raspberry peony and I might just have to buy the buttercup blossom one too :)

Swaddle set – The other swaddles I’ve always loved are the Little Unicorn ones. Again, super fun and pretty prints very very soft blankets. I got the Morning Glory swaddle set and I looooove the light purple in them.

Sling – I’ve gone from the Ergo, to the Bjorn, to the Sollybaby (which I love and still plan to use!) and now I want to try a ring sling! I fell in love with the WildBird ones, although there there are tons of brands out there, I just love the style, the colors, and the girl who created them (@taylorgolden) is totally awesome. Again, I set my alarm clock for the spring launch a couple months ago and got my Cassin Wrap! I can’t wait to try it out!

Nursing cover – THESE NURSING COVERS. Why didn’t I have one with Ivy or Leo?! Especially Leo, that’s when I kind of started to see them around.  I love that there are so many uses for it – nursing cover, car seat cover, scarf, and shopping cart cover. Genius item! I bought this Covered Goods one and a friend gifted me this Milk Snob one, both are very soft and fun prints!

Robe – Lastly, a robe!! MUST HAVE in the hospital! I didn’t have a robe with Ivy, bought just some cheap one from Target for Leo, and now I see these pretty Pink Blush delivery robes around everywhere! So many fun solids and prints and they offer short or long. I opted for the long taupe floral one and it’s sooooo pretty.

Pretty excited about these new finds! What are some of your favorites with your babes??

I’m 37.5 weeks (because I totally count the halfs at this point!) and super anxious to meet this baby! Can’t wait to use all these new pretty swaddles and gear with her! :)


 

MAMA Style // Maternity Dresses

April 30, 2017

Minus this rain and cold out right now, I’m loving getting out of jeans and into dresses! Maternity jeans are soooo tight right now on this big ole 35 week belly, so I certainly prefer to slip into a dress. I love bodycon dresses! (Here’s one for that I’ve been wearing that’s NOT maternity and only $9.90! Comes in many colors). They’re tight on the bump instead of big and flowy to make you feel even larger than you really are. But I can’t complain about flowy dresses either to hide all the extra weight around the hips and butt! Give me all the maxi dresses for so much comfort! I’ve rounded up my eight favorite maternity dresses out there right now. The denim embroidered one is my FAVORITE!


Top || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Bottom || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4


Isn’t the denim one so fabulous?! ASOS is my absolute favorite for maternity clothes, they’re cheap and offer SO many options! Plus buy the $19/year 2 day free shipping, it’s so worth it! Like Amazon Prime!

The teal bodycon dress (#3) is sooo comfortable and it comes in 15 different colors for only $47! I want like 5 of the colors! It’s so comfortable and you can really keep it casual for day or dress it up for night.

Here are some more of my favorite maternity dresses out there!

Friday Finds // 4.14.17

April 14, 2017

Happy Easter Weekend! We have a packed weekend ahead of us. Starting with lunch with Easter bunny tomorrow! I can’t wait to see Ivy and Leo with the bunny and run around chasing some eggs, should be adorable. Let’s hope neither of them are scared by the big bunny! :) Then we get to go to Peppa Live! Ivy just got into the show a couple months ago, and now Leo is walking around saying Peppa too, super cute. Ivy has the cutest Peppa dress to wear to the show. She even had to sleep in it last night when I showed it to her, she’s obsessed! Should be a fun day tomorrow. Ending with EASTER! I’m hosting both sides of our families and am pretty anxious to stuff myself with some delicious food and celebrate after church. Easter eggs are filled and baskets are made, anxious for these two little kids to roam the yard in search for their baskets and eggs! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Happy Easter! Here’s some pics from last year, oh Leo so cute!

Loved my table last year! Going to do basically the same again this year! TULIPS, LOVE

Spring Dresses for Your Mini

April 7, 2017

FINALLY packing away the winter gear and slipping into something much easier… dresses! Ivy literally could wear a dress every day, it’s always what she picks out! And now with the nicer weather, I’m not bugging her to put on tights or leggings and a sweater to cover up the cute dress! She loves to dress herself, and I LOVE that she is capable of doing that, so we made sure to pick out some of these dresses together because I’ve failed too many times with bringing something home that she doesn’t like… #threeyearolds #ugh. Here are some adorable spring dresses for your mini! :)


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9


Ivy’s favorites are 1, 3, 6, and 8! She’s so funny. I love her random style – cute and quirky! 3 is a metallic stripe dress, kinda love it! And the pinafore style is so cute for the spring, like this dress! So many adorable dresses out there. Ivy picked out this dress for Easter when I gave her about 5 options – she always surprises me! Can’t wait to see all your mini babes in their cute spring and summer clothes!
