Our Week & Favorites

I've been on quite the blogging roll this week, four out of five days, that has to be some kind of personal record for me!  If not of all-time, definitely since becoming a mom of two, time just seems harder to come by these days. ;)  We have really had such a great week that I can't help but share (because if I didn't, then it didn't really happen, right?!).

So all four of us are finally healthy AND the rain stayed has away for a while, so that in itself has been amaaaazing!  It's crazy how much energy you have after being sick for a while.  I was totally in survival mode & hanging by a thread last week, so after that, it's nice to remember that I actually do (sort of) have this mom of two thing figured out and obviously, that life with these two little ladies is just so, so good.

Waverly's Boots
In other good news, Waverly Maye.  She went through a rough patch a few weeks ago - #threenager, we thought about giving her away to the gypsies - but finally, she seems to be turning a corner and it's pretty much the best feeling ever.  We've started a sticker chart that we go though each night, I'm not sure if that's what caused the change, or that she just figured out that life is so much better when you are good rather than a pain in the a--.  Either way, we are thrilled!  She has just been so much fun to be around lately, so sweet & so incredibly funny.  Last night she told us she just wouldn't be able to clean up her toys because it would be "too difficult" (nice try!), that her (imaginary) best friend Gold has flown away on a helicopter, he is now replaced with "Goddie", and my personal favorite, that all the boys in her class at school are "so gross".

The girls & I went to pick up some pumpkins for the front porch this week, finally!  I took a million pictures because little kid and pumpkin pictures may just be my favorite thing ever, so please forgive me if this is the first set of many. :)  We had so much fun!


Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to share some favorite finds from this week!  I recently ordered this water bottle after reading about it on Erin's blog, I have a weird collection of water bottles because I am ALWAYS trying to drink more water and it never happens.  This one is amazing, totally worth the money & I will never turn back!  Also, this duvet cover.  Obsessed!  I have wanted a new comforter for our bed and the tassels on this one are just perfection.

And lastly, just to prove that girlfriend is still very much a threenager.

Happy Friday!

  4. Some days I am looking for those gypsies too. A happy chart might be the ticket - geesh. How can somebody so tiny be such a pain? I'm really looking forward to the teen years...

  5. I'm currently on hold with those gypsies. Can someone tell me exactly how long I have to deal with such drama and sass? If it's more than a few weeks, I'll screwed. I'm not made for threeanger life.

  9. I would LOVE more information on the sticker chart you are using! We are in the throes of "threenager" with Beckett and are looking for any suggestions! She's so good for everyone else, so I know she has it in her, just must know all mommy and daddy's buttons to push!

  17. Haha the "fly" water bottle (if you follow Erin on Snapchat). I'm loving that duvet cover, white bedding is my favorite and those tassels are the best! Love all of the pumpkin photos, I'm glad Waverly seems to be turning a corner. Scarlett has good days and bad days but some days I want to give her away to the gypsies too, three year olds are hard.

  24. Haha, total threenager!!! :) I am so glad the sticker chart is working....anything that helps, right? Have you tried the Hydro Flask? BEST water bottle ever. I've heard great thins about Swell, too, but I've already invested $40 into my water bottle, so I'll need to keep it a little longer before chaning. :) LOVE that duvet cover!! Get it!
