You Don't Want To Miss This

+For my local gals-you must head over to Chop5 (over at Polaris) for a healthy, delicious lunch or dinner. Think build your own salad or bowl. Seriously my fav!

+Add a cold shoulder top to your wardrobe this spring. I love this ruffled one (more colors available) 

+The cutest slip on shoes - these are perfect for spring and great for busy moms because they work well with so many different outfits. Really wanting to treat myself to them! 

+An adorable quick and easy Valentine's Day craft for babies + toddlers! (Crafts these days in our household MUST be quick and easy...)

+Need a new phone case? This one is my pick (I've owned 3 or 4 cases by this brand and I've always got so much use out of them) 

+How do you guys feel about this style of Ray Bans? They seem to be making their rounds as the popular style now. I am obsessed with the color of them, but not so sure I could pull off the look? What do you think? Would you rock them?

+ALL the heart eyes for this crossbody bag...

 +Looking for a cute coverup for an upcoming vacation? You can't beat this stripe caftan from ASOS! ($32)

Happy Friday Eve! 


Weekend Happenings

Monday is here and I can't be more serious when I say that I'm really excited about it...

You won't believe it {as I'm knocking on wood over here} but everyone in our house is back to being healthy again, so I feel like a BRAND NEW WOMAN! If you missed it (see also I forgot to share), I went to the doctors last week and found out that I had bronchitis. Not that shocking since Grayson has been getting over RSV (he's pretty much over it now-thank God!), but still a big bummer when you're trying to parent two kids and feel like a semi-normal human being yourself. So yes, I'm thrilled it's a brand new week and that we're one week closer to spring!

Here's some happenings from our weekend // Just some fun things I wanted to share:

Billy got me this necklace as an early Valentine's Day gift. It's from Urban Sparrow Designs (not sponsored at all) and I really love it because not only does it have the boys' initials but also a paw print disc for Rocky. I have been wanting a disc necklace (vs the bars) for a while, so safe to say this is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry!

 Saturday night I went solo shopping to Target (#momsgonewild) to get some Valentine's Day things for the boys. When I got home and laid it all out I realized just how random of the crap that ended up in my cart actually was. And this picture isn't even including the chocolate covered strawberry Oreos that also came home with me...
But hey, at least I got those self-tanning wipes for 20% off (thanks Cartwheel! and yes, I do actually love them-they are so easy to apply and don't turn me orange) I typically like to just do little craft items, new books, and just 1 or 2 little pieces of candy or fruit snacks for the kids Valentine's Day baskets!

I've been sticking well to my plan of cutting back on caffeine. I've had it 2-3 times max in the past 3 weeks. I STOPPED craving it and feel worlds better, but still like to treat myself once a week just because.

 Camden looking adorable playing with his lego's...he's obsessed with that plane right now!
 and don't worry, we do actually have heat in our house but he wanted to wear his hat and since he looked so cute in it I had to snap some pictures.

 This mascara...

Also, let's talk meal planning. Does anyone prepare a big batch of dinners (3-4) on Sunday's to use for the week? I'm thinking about trying it. Yesterday I made these egg muffins to have on hand for the week for breakfast, these no-bake energy balls for snacks, and made a big batch of chicken noodle soup. Now I'm feeling inspired to make even more dishes (like dinners) as well on Sunday's. If you do, what are your favorite dinners to make in advance? Share them with me!

Not pictured but just as fun was a play date the boys had at our friends house! It was also my stepmom's birthday yesterday so we went over and celebrated that with her and she gave Camden a very {much needed} haircut! Oh, and I have to admit we turned off the Superbowl game early. I did watch Gaga's performance though, and of course LOVED it. Thought she looked and sounded amazing!

 Now let's cross our fingers our house remains healthy until like...summer. At least. :)


The Best Valentine's Day Gifts For Her

Valentines Day Gifts

Happy February everyone!

Can you believe Valentine's Day is only 2 weeks away? We don't have any specific plans yet, but I'm hoping we will be able to make it out just for dinner the two of us. We all have been so sick that I don't even mind just staying in, but I pray by that point we're all better. And if not...send help. Lots of help. :)
