The Fifth of July

The day after a Holiday. Your one wish is to stay in bed for an extra hour because lets face it, you went a little too hard on the White Claws the day before. You just pray that your child sleeps in a little. And he does… It’s 8AM and he is still a sleep. You’re husband however, is wide awake and up for the day. Yes, I’m talking about Brian. He was up before me! I’m as shocked as you are. You go downstairs, make coffee, watch tv and he is still a sleep. 9:30AM rolls around and no peep. You’re sitting there wondering why you didn’t just try to fall back a sleep because this scenario will N.E.V.E.R happen again lol. But then around 9:50ish he finally wakes up. I have to admit I peaked in his room to make sure he was ok. Who else does this? Even though you know deep down they’re completely fine, you still want to double check.

Mason’s morning routine is: wake up, get milky, watch a few shows and eat breakfast. This morning we watched Paw Patrols and somewhere during the episode they said, “surprise”. Well, that is the first time he said surprise and wouldn’t stop saying it all day. When he says new words it makes my heart SO happy :-).

What else do 30 somethings do on their day off? Hit up Lowes of course. We’re contemplating redoing our kitchen and just wanted to price some things out. If you guys have any remodeling tips send them my way! But yea, after that Brian had some catching up to do on work and Mason and I went to the pool. Here are some pics of us at the pool last week but we wore the same swimsuits. I’m obsessed with them and they’re from Target! So you can snag these online or run into your local store. What have you guys been up to this Holiday weekend?

These swim trunks are Cat & Jack and are only $9.99! Link below for direct link.

Babies don’t keep

I have been trying to think of a direction I want to go with my blog. I love writing but haven’t been very inspired to write lately. I was out with Mommy friends the other day and was given some very good advice. Journal a little each day. Journal about what you did that day, miles stones your child has hit, funny or sad things that happened, phrases they say. Memories fade, unfortunately, but being able to go back and read about different events that happened, you’ll cherish forever. This really hit home for me. I have a lot of memories of my childhood but sadly, a lot have faded.

That being said, I’m going to use this space to write about my family. The silly, sad, happy and everything in between. I will of course be sharing all of my outfits and Masons 🙂 and any great finds! I hope you all enjoy the ride ❤️

A little color for your Thursday

I have to admit I’m usually slightly behind on most trends. I love new looks but trying them for myself is another story. I completely jumped on the high rise band wagon though and am not hopping off! I hope high rise jeans neverrr go out of style. I’m also LOVING the wider leg trend. Check out these super cute blue high rise pants. They are on MAJOR sale and are from Anthropologie. So ladies, run don’t walk! They’re currently under $60! I’ve also linked some tops/ shoes to complete the look. Sadly, the top I have on, is not linkable but if it ever is, I will be sure to link it for you! I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Activities for 1-2 year olds

For starters I would LOVE to hear ideas from y’all! What activities do you do with 1-2 year olds? Honestly, this has been a struggle for me. Mason, is such a smart active kid, and is constantly keeping me on my toes.

I found a few activities that I’m going to try with him. Let me know what you think and chime in with any ideas!
