Five Things

 Hey hey hey! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! 

Lots of fun things to share with you guys today, so I'm getting right into it! 


I like to share my five things on Monday's because then I'm able to include my weekend favorites. Like these beach towels. I've been using Aurorae's beach towel (I got the Med. Seas color-it's a beautiful deep blue) at the pool and when we go to the cottage to the beach and sit in the sand. You can easily stretch out comfortably on it, but what really makes them different/stand out to me is how absorbent and soft they are. The microfiber is nice and thick, so it doesn't feel like your laying on a normal, regular towel. It's seriously so soft! 

If you're into yoga/fitness, Aurorae has some great yoga mats and accessories as well! You can see all their products here.  




We finally bought a Blendtec! Life. changing! It's the best blender out there, I swear!

 I don't think we've gone more than a day without using it since we bought it, which was a few weeks ago! I really should do a full post on it because it's that good but I'm not sure if anyone would even be interested in that? If so, let me know!!

 Anyway, on the weekends we've been making some really yummy cocktails and I had to share our recipe from Saturday night... 

I randomly picked up ingredients from the store with no real recipe and it turned out delicious...

 -4 shots smirnoff sorbet light mango passion fruit vodka
-1.5 cups frozen mango
1.5 cups frozen pineapple
-1 cup simply balanced sparking peach mango juice (from Target) 

Blend all ingredients together and serve! Makes 2 drinks. SO YUMMY!


We found a new favorite brunch spot in Columbus: Walrus!

 We had the best brunch here on Saturday...I'm still drooling over our dishes.

We split the El Morsa (bisquits, two fried eggs, fries, cheese) and the Chicken and Waffles. Both were AMAZING! I also tried their "Juan Pablo's Seeing Eye Dog" drink, which was a combination of bourbon, carrot juice, ginger beer, and OJ. I was surprised how much I liked this! We loved this place and plan to head back there for lunch soon.

 After breakfast we walked over to a park/splash pad area downtown. It was such a beautiful day!


 Boo the Pom came home with us after a recent trip to Target. Rocky immediately attacked him when I showed him, haha! Aren't they cute?


Is there anything sweeter than a freshly bathed bebe with a comb over (and a side of drool?)

I think not... 

Ugh, I could just eat him up.


Happy Monday! 


  1. Definitely would be interested in a post about the Blendtec! I am trying to decide between that and the Vitamix! Torture!

    1. Definitely go for the Blendtec!!! We researched the differences between the two for honestly...months. Haha! Maybe I will do a post because we learned a lot about the two when we were looking. Be on the lookout for a post soon!

  2. I would love to know your journey of weening off the pump, only if you are willing to share. I am currently pumping, and freezing, and wanting to make it to 9 months.

    1. Sure! Honestly, it was a lot easier than I expected. Email me for more details (whalenkat@gmail.com) but basically I just started by cutting out one pump per day. I cut out one of the afternoon (the lunchtime one) sessions. Then after a week or so I down to 3 pumps per day: morning, 4-5pm, evening (before bed). I then decreased how long I was pumping at each of those sessions by a few minutes. Once comfortable with that, I cut out the mid day pump. So I was just pumping 2 times per day: morning and night. Then I dropped the morning pump. After that when I was only producing 1 oz or so, I dropped them all. After 24 hours with no pumping I had to pump for a few minutes just to give some relief and then after that I was fully done! Hopefully that makes sense because I typed really quickly, but again feel free to email me if that's confusing!

  3. I'm all about the comb over after bath time!! Love it!

    P.S. You're little one is an absolute doll! After seeing him with all of his dark hair when he was born, I hoped and prayed my little boy would be born with dark hair, and he was!! Yes!! Dark hair boys for the win! :)

  4. Camden looks so adorable after coming out the bath! He is such a cutie.

  5. Camden is a doll and I need chicken and waffles now! I hated pumping ugh!

  6. Oh, I need one of those towels ASAP!

  7. I can feel that the articles contained in this blog is so interesting. I also get a variety informasin, thanks.
