• Goooooooood morning!

    It’s Friday and you know what that means! Here is another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. Ready, set, GO!

    Sandals – Oh my gosh, all of my summer shoes are so old and disgusting. Last year, after Quinn was born, I pretty much lived in Rainbows, but now I really need new ones. I’ve looked online and in-store (Marshalls and TJMaxx), but I haven’t purchased anything yet. I stink at shopping, but I narrowed it down to what I am looking for. I want a casual-dressy pair of sandals (maybe a wedge?), something like these or these, as well as a pair of nicer flats, like these or these. What do you guys think? What are you wearing on your feet this summer?

    Summer Beauty Essentials to Get From Target – Yes to all of these.

    Sally Hershberger Glam Waves Texture Spray – I just bought this the other day. Love it and it only cost $12.99 on Amazon!

    Why ’80s Babies Are Different Than Other Millennials – I always knew we were different!

    Acai-Bowls – I remember loving these so much when I was in Oahu. This post has lots of delicious-looking recipes for recreating them at home!

    more kids – I loved this article about having more kids and feel like I could have written parts of it myself.

    23 All-Time Worst Engagement Photos – This was funny!

    Mini Veggie Muffins – I made these for Quinn yesterday and they were a big hit. I’ll share the recipe on CNC soon— I just need to put together the post.

    16 Life Hacks All Women Absolutely Should Know – Love this. Lots of fun ones!

    Suction bowls – My sister told me about this set of suction bowls, and they are awesome now that Quinn is starting to feed himself with a spoon. He still makes a huge mess, but food doesn’t end up everywhere.

    A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have sent well wishes and prayers for Murphy. The poor pug has had a rough few days, so we really appreciate it. Ok, let me back up a little and give you guys the whole story… Back in January, Murphy had an ear infection and then some […]

    Photo Dump V

    May 28, 2015

    Good morning! It’s time for another edition of random-photos-from-my-iPhone! Murphy taking a ride in Quinn’s stroller. It was too hot for pugs and he was done walking, so we gave him a ride. He seemed to really enjoy himself! Quinn hanging out on the slide at the playground. I slid him down the bottom part […]

    There’s Nothing Better Than A Booger Kiss

    May 27, 2015

    Helloooooo! How was your Tuesday? It definitely felt like a Monday, right? I kept thinking that all day long. Anyway, we had a nice little Tuesday over here. Murphy still isn’t doing well, so the vet suggested not leaving him alone, unless he was in a crate, and I just couldn’t do that to the poor […]

    A Letter to My (Almost) One Year Old Son

The journey of motherhood is different for everyone, and I felt that the best way to convey this was through a letter to Quinn. I just wanted to share […]
