4. The weather has been so up & down lately that we literally can’t keep up, both Waverly & I are battling colds because of it. The good news is that it was warm long enough for Waverly to wear this corduroy jumper, so much cuteness!! I’m just not ready to cover those legs up quite yet.
TWO: I ordered a pair of Converse this week, I used to be strictly a heels kind of lady but being a mom changes everything. 😉 I’m all about flats these days for all that running after Waverly I do, & I’m not going to lie, I’m really excited to embrace my sporty side once these babies come in.
THREE: Is anyone else as obsessed with gift wrap as I am?! I almost love wrapping a present in pretty packaging as much as I love picking it out. I’m going to a bridal shower this weekend & picked up one of the Spritz bags from Target to put it in, best line ever!
FOUR: We had family pictures last weekend because we already didn’t have enough of us, right?! 😉 Waverly is growing so fast & I couldn’t resist a few for spring, she wore this dress & I couldn’t have loved it more. Floral print is always a favorite of mine & the color was just perfect for this time of year. Can’t wait to share soon!
FIVE: I have been loving popcorn lately for a low-cal, easy snack in the afternoons. So with Cinco De Mayo coming up on Monday, we decided to get festive a little early with a batch of Chili Lime Popcorn (click link for recipe). I am so excited to pair this with a margarita on Monday, what better way to kick off the week?!
And I have to share, this week Waverly either let me know that she is very ready for potty training or the exact opposite. I haven’t decided which. She handed me a diaper while repeating “diapa”, something she has been doing for a while now. Yet when I tried to put it on, she said “no, mama” & wanted to do it herself. So there she was, desperately trying to put her own diaper on while laying flat on the floor. Something I’m sure I couldn’t even do on my own while laying down (& that I really, really hope I never have to). She got really fancy & added a wipe (while repeating “cold”), & when she really gave up on successfully getting the diaper on, resorted to putting one on her baby. We must have put ten diapers on that baby doll. I must admit she was damn good at it & even so polite that if she made a mistake, she told the baby “I sorry”. 🙂 Oh, how I love her & this age so very much.
Happy, happy weekend to you all!
ONE: I never shy from a print in fashion & am always looking for new, creative ones for Waverly & I both. Right now I am loving all of these “fruit” screenprinted sweatshirts, tees & dresses that are popping up everywhere. They are so much fun & perfect for the warmer weather. Waverly loves strawberries & with her hair color, this was one I couldn’t resist.
Here are my FIVE, they are extra-sweet this week!
|Heart Dress (Old Navy; In-Store)
Waverly’s heart dress is definitely a keeper, but this gold headband is one of my favorite ones she has ever worn. And she has worn a lot of headbands. Thank you to Willow Crowns for this lovely gem, we are planning to get lots of use out of it all year!
Love the white on top & how light & airy it feels! So perfect for spring, which I am starting to feel more than ready for. Too early?
As much fun as I was having with family over the holiday week, I really missed this link-up.
Super excited to be back & to be talking all things CHRISTMAS!
Here are my FIVE.
I have decided that I have a love-hate relationship with all of these “super-sale days.” While my love is obvious, these type of things are so beyond dangerous for a shopaholic like me. And now that I have a shopping sidekick to go with AND to shop for, it’s only harder. 🙂
After some much-needed snacking to fully prepare for battle, Waverly Maye & her Jameson Monroe headband joined me at the mall. Favorite deals of the weekend were 50% at Gap & Old Navy, 20% off at Asos, 15% off at Land of the Nod & Lightroom Photoshop on sale at Best Buy. With the exception of Gap & Old Navy, all of the deals are still going on so check them out! (If you dare!)
TWO: Advent Calender. SUPER excited to start this tradition with Waverly Maye! Even though she won’t completely understand yet, I am happy to pull a treat or activity each day on her behalf! I included a mix of fun activities, holiday toddler-friendly candy, & stickers. In an effort to save money somewhere, I decided to make my own even though I am LOVING this one at Target & this one at Pottery Barn Kids. I’m thinking I’ll go with mine this year & try to scoop one up after Chrismas on sale for the years to come. 🙂
THREE: Pretzels. Made these little gems over the weekend & YUM!
ONE: Fringe. Fall & fringe go together like Thanksgiving & turkey, in my opinion. I am LOVING this trend right now more than ever! We have stocked up on fringe vests, sweaters, and most importantly, mommy & mini fringe boots. But this fringe jumpsuit totally takes my fringe fever to another level.
Wild Waverly doesn’t like to sit still enough to like the swings at our little gym, but she LOVES, LOVES this one. I think because it is outside & she is such a nature lover. And my favorite part is when she says “seeeng” to let me know she is ready to get in it. *I really can never get enough of that sweet baby voice & would like to request that she keep it forever. 🙂
And actually, my students have been pretty great & have made it a little bit easier to leave my girl. That, and the fact that we get to talk fashion & style all day long. Sitting on www.instyle.com is my job. I do it for the kids. 🙂
TWO – It’s an endless summer for us in VB. It’s still hot as hell out, so we are taking advantage at the beach. Waverly Maye is a total beach baby. She LOVES IT … every part of it, sand & waves included. My crazy child gives me a mild heart attack everytime she takes a bite out of the sand or dunks her head in the water. I totally blame my husband for all of it, she totally gets it from him. They are two peas in
a pod the sand.
FOUR – It must be the teacher in me, Waverly & I have been having dates at the library lately. I am trying my hardest to get her interested in books. We have an entire four shelves packed with them & I read her at least one a night, but this active little lady definitely doesn’t like to sit still. For anything. So little by little, we are getting there and the kids section at our local library has definitely helped. Especially the fact that it is usually pretty empty and she can run through as she pleases.
I’m trying 🙂
FIVE – My sister-in-law got me this necklace for my 30th, and OMG – I have worn it everyday since and may just wear it everyday for the rest of my life. I love it, it matches everything, and best of all, it has Waverly’s name right across it. Even when I am away from my little, she is right with me. Bestill my 30 year-old heart. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
