It’s halfway through the week (a holiday week!!) & it seems like the perfect time for a completely random post. So here goes, ten things on my mind!
1 – Target does it again. Damn it. Is it just me, or do they just keep getting better & better? I went yesterday for a couple last-minute things for the girls Easter baskets and came out with let’s just say, way too much.
I was scrolling through IG recently and came across my favorite post ever, click here
and tell me that this has happened to you.
2 – Speaking of Instagram, I am running a fun giveaway for the girl moms right now if you want to pop over! The post is here
, it’s to win a $20 store credit to Blooming Addi
and it runs until tonight at 12pm. We love these precious bunny bows and there is so much other cute stuff to wear all year long.
3 – Swimsuit season. Yall, I just don’t know that I am ready. Two babies later & there is just no part of me that is ready to show my show my stuff to the world in just a couple short months. So I’m totally on the hunt for something that I’ll feel good in, I never ever
thought I would wear a tankini (my younger sister is totally going to get me for this one), but how cute is this
?! I also am obsessed with this one-piece
, I think an entire post of fun one-pieces is totally in order.
4 – Cue the haters, because I know this is going to sound horrible, but I am just a little over breastfeeding. Hear me out though! Avalon’s teeth are seriously killing me. I know Waverly had teeth by this point too, I don’t know if Avalon is just a little more fierce or what, but it sometimes feels like I am in a wrestling match. She’s also gotten really distracted, even at night, so I feel like I have to work hard to calm her down and then it never fails, once I do Waverly comes running in yelling “Avalon ELLLLLIE, it’s your sissy!!!!”. And I’m back to where I started. My goal is still one year, and I do love it when it works, so I’m hoping we can hang on for a few more months.
5 – Birthday party planning!! Avalon turns the big ONE (say what?!) at the beginning of June and Waverly turns four at the end of July, and we’ve definitely started thinking about how to celebrate! Avalon will have the big traditional party at our house, and then I’m going to try to go way more low key for Waverly this year. Her biggest request is for her friends from school to come and for donuts, so I’m thinking a small brunch with close friends, family, and a few four-year olds!
6 – My husband & I have a wedding next weekend and I’m so excited. So, so freaking excited! Is that crazy or what?! We haven’t had a date night since Valentine’s Day and even then we stayed home while the girls went out (and they brought back Avalon early), so this pretty much feels like Christmas. And I’m going to wear heels. This is BIG-time. 😉
7 – I recently was sent the cutest leggings & dress for Waverly from Liz at LulaRoe, we love them! The leggings are the most comfy ever, and you know we like that. Waverly’s dress is so cute, the print is perfect and even better, it’s a twirling dress! Her fave. You can find Liz’s shop here.
8 – We are so excited to celebrate Easter this weekend!!! So far this week we have been to the Easter bunny & made treats for family, we can’t want to host our family for an early Easter dinner on Sunday. How amazing does this mashed potato casserole
look as a side? Both girls would be all about it.
9 – I’m really sad that The Bachelor is over. What am I supposed to look forward to every week? Any suggestions on mindless yet fascinating shows to replace it?!
10 – I’ve started a running note on my phone of some of my favorite things Waverly says lately, this has got to be the best age for funny little statements. Some recent favorites, we were driving and the car next to us pulled out in front of us & she says “SLOW DOWN LADY”. A couple days ago she looks up at me completely randomly and says “Mom, I had so much fun when I was in your belly”. And maybe my favorite (or not?), “Umm, why are your boobies so flat?”. I asked her what she meant and she said “like, there are none”. Apparently the days of the big pregnancy/breastfeeding boobs are officially behind me.
Happy hump day, friends! XO
