I dropped the ball on the NEW-week noteworthies so I figured we could have a fun little midweek post where I just lay out all my random thoughts and feelings as of late! A little bit of coffee or wine talk shall we say?!
I honestly cannot believe it’s FEBRUARY tomorrow. What I really can’t believe is that Evie is going to be TWO in April. Time is flying and it’s so crazy to think she’s been in our lives for almost 2 years…it feels like she’s always been around! This year I am not having a big party for her (check out her “Donut Grow Up” 1st Birthday party) and am opting to let her pick out the “theme” and have a night in with family! I’m super excited for her preschool “party” though. The thought of brining cupcakes or cookies to her class and celebrating with her friends and teachers seriously melts me into a puddle of mush. I’ve always dreamed of doing little things like that as a mama, and it’s a pinch-me-moment to have it coming true.
I’ve been using this new face primer lately and I AM OBSESSED. It gives my skin a nice dewy glow and I love how lightweight it is. I’d honestly never primed my face before buying this product and now I’m going to have to keep in in my permanent rotation. Speaking of makeup, I also heard about these insanely cheap makeup brushes from my girl Madi (we’ve known each other since elementary school), and they are an actual steal and actually AMAZING. Thanks, Madi!! Blurry photo, but I loved my little “glam spot” in our sweet cottage in Palmetto Bluff.
Veteran mamas…when can I potty train my baby girl?! HA. I know it’s early as she’s only (almost) 22 months BUT because Nancy goes to the potty she’s super obsessed with the idea of it and has asked to sit on the potty multiple times. One time she actually did a super tiny tinkle but Spyros and I think it was a fluke. Am I unrealistic to want to set a goal for her to be potty trained before school in September? It’s okay to say yes! I’m trying to get her excited, and since she’s showing interest I am running for it. I let her pick out a potty seat online and here’s what showed up on our doorstep today…
Y’all loved following along on my surprise Christmas trip on Instagram…I’m so happy to report that we had the BEST time ever. Spyros not only managed to keep the destination a secret BUT so did some of our best friends who wound up joining us on the trip as well. We are now full force back to reality but I do promise to get my act together and upload all of my photos and share more about our time there. I’m also going to link my sunglasses right here for y’all because anytime I wear them I get many DMs about them…so here you go: my sunglasses!
This weekend I am off to NYC because my sister in law is engaged and trying on wedding dresses this weekend! I’m sad to be leaving Evie two weekends in a row (I’ve NEVER done that), but I’m excited that it’s for a super fun weekend!!! It’s going to be filled with girly goodness, and I think it will be great for Spyros and Evie to have some one-on-one time together. My sister-in-laws were with me when I said “yes” to my dress, so it’s only fitting that we carry on the tradition! Here’s a photo from June 2013 when I found my dress…and I’m standing on a platform and am NOT a giant unfortunately. I wanted to go to Kleinfeld for fun to try on dresses since I lived in NYC and totally didn’t expect to find “the one” there. We cancelled all other appointments and had a fun rest of the day showing my mom and Elise around the city…we went to lunch, I showed them my office, and I actually bought a piece of artwork off the streets that day.
A random but necessary question for all of you larger busted ladies. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS BRA? I’ve always had big boobs, and unfortunately they didn’t go away when I was done nursing. My favorite sports bra to wear that actually keeps me supported is by the brand Zella. I got it at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, and now I can’t find it anywhere. So enlighten my ladies…please send me a DM on Instagram or leave a comment below on supportive bras for a D+ cup :). THANKS!
Thanks for following me on that oh so random blog post. I’m trying to be better about keeping this space filled, and to be completely honest, my life just isn’t very exciting, and there’s a lot of randomness going on at all times! Thanks for following along with us and we’re more than likely on Insta-story or something so be sure you’re following our Instagram account!
