Momento


My sweetheart, the love of my life, the most beautiful guy on the planet in my humble opinion, he literally deserves a present every day.  He isn't perfect, but when I think about it, yea he kind of is.  And maybe it is good that I am writing such a lovey dove post after a Sunday at which he woke up before me, got dressed and then got the boys dressed for church, got them breakfast, did the dishes, finally woke me up to get dressed and then got the baby ready and all of the kids in the car, yea thats a lot for just the morning but it doesn't end there.  He did a few loads of laundry, folded everything and put it away, did the dishes again, picked up clutter again, got the boys showered and off to bed all while I held Jonah, fed him, and played with him, because he refused to nap and hadn't slept good the past few nights and I was so tired, and he is leaving for Dallas this week and he is trying to make things easy on me while he is here.  Again, I say, no he's not perfect, but at the moment I can't remember why.

Gift giving is one of my favorite love languages, although I am not always the best at it.  I got him cologne for the first time this year, Chanel Blue.  I really don't think I could afford the collectors editions comic books he wants, or a pinball machine for that matter, and I guess I am not as bad as picking out ties as I thought I was since, since he wears them more than any others, but I think for a guy, you can't really go wrong with a beautiful watch.  He deserves all the watches, and this one from JORD Wooden Watches is such a unique addition to his growing collection, and since he travels so much, I really love that when he puts on his watch in the morning, or takes it off at night, he will think of me.



I got him the Olive and Acacia wooden watch, because I loved the classic design and how the black metal face contrasted with the wood.  It's woodsy and charming, and I love the idea of paring it with cozy cardigans and sweaters for the winter.  It really warms up an outfit and its masculine in an earthy way.  He really loves it, and paired with his Chanel Bleu and Chris Pine status head of hair, I've got heart eyes for days lately. 

Thank you JORD for this beautiful gift that we will cherish.  And the good news is, I have a giveaway going on and you can win one of these beauties too.  Just follow the link below to enter! The giveaway will end 3/5!

Closet Updating with Pink Blush

My closet needed a little love after I purged so much this Fall.  I got rid of so much that didn't fit or hadn't worn in a few years, and impulse buys, which I have been trying hard not to do anymore.  I made a little list of the new things I needed and I loved the idea of getting rid of 2 trash bags full and replacing them with just a few new staple pieces to pair with my favorite vintage items I had kept.  I found a few of my new staples at Pink Blush. I knew I wanted a cozy lightweight pullover to wear around the house, a nursing friendly church dress, and a nursing robe as well.  I have worked with Pink Blush before on maternity styles, but I love that they are not exlsusvily maternity and that they carry plus sizes and nursing friendly finds as well.  Here is what I got for my closet and how I am loving them!

This knit thermal top is so soft and light weight, its exacly what I was looking for to wear around the house and not feel frumpy.  I love it with my vintage linen elastic waist pants for a very cute and cozy day look, its the cozyness of pjs without looking like you forgot to brush your teeth haha. I loved this sweater so much I got one for my mom and sister for Christmas! The hood and the tie neck are so cute. 

This dress is actually a maternity dress so there is plenty of room to grow in it.  Also, the top is stretchy and pulls down so I can nurse Jonah easily.  I love this rust and lace combination, and is such a pretty silhouette. I have a short sleeve dress in this color that I love so I can consider this one my winter version of that! By the way I was freezing in this photo but I wanted to show off the pretty long sleeves.

It seems like every robe I have had has been to short, or too thin, or too fluffy, or wasn't modest enough which to me is the whole point of them.  When I found this pretty one in the perfect fabric weight and in the prettiest design and length, I knew it was what I had been searching for all along. It's so cozy and thin, and I can make breakfast in it without feeling like I am in a giant stuffed animal suit! It's so perfect for our cozy mornings at home.
I think my closet and I are pretty content at the moment.  It feels good to look in there and see only what I really wear and need!  Thank you so much Pink Blush

Baby Gear Must Haves

Hey you mamas and papas, I have teamed up with Baby Cubby today to show you some great finds at great values, because they price check, even with amazon, and do the research for you for a curated collection of the niftiest needs for newborns and up!  Here is what I am loving.

Wow, I wish I would have invented this.  Empty your baby food into the capsule and then squeeze it into the spoon.  Yes Yes Yes. 

                                                                 Boon Squirt Baby Food Dispensing Spoon

This stroller is so compact and light, it folds down super small and even comes with a back pack bag to wear while traveling.  

Our go to shoes.  They even have our favorite color, Blue Spruce, a super cool grey blue neutral. 

I have worked with Tubby Todd a lot over the past year and was not surpised to see them offered here.  Such lovely scents and all natural ingredients.  We love Tubby Todd products!

For me, there is nothing better than a backpack style diaper bag.  I need extra hands, so I can't afford one to be taken away holding a shoulder bag.  I have some awesome ones but on really active days, I 
go with the backpack. 


Such a sleek, well made, safe, and easy to install carseat.  I love its simplistic style.

This is what we are eyeing for Jonah's first birthday.  A sweet walker that he can load his toys in as well.  I am sure the big brothers will want to play with this too!

So if you are looking for shower presents, or are an overwhelmed new parent, give Baby Cubby a visit.  They have the best of everything you need, and a lot of great brands to explore and fall in love with.  I find online shopping so much easier than going to a store, no lines, reviews to read, and its easier to compare the details of products.  Happy Shopping!
