It's been WAY too long since I've done a life update type of post. Oh...where to begin, where to begin?
+We have our first family vacation (Cam's first time flying!) in less than 2 weeks! We are really looking forward to having a full week all together. If anyone has any tips for traveling/going to the beach with a little one (other than the feeding during takeoff), please send my way! Especially if it has to do with packing or what to bring/what not to bring. Also, I bought a lightweight umbrella stroller to bring with us but am starting to wonder if I will want our BOB with us? Which will be best?
+For the next 10 days before we leave, me and Billy are doing a big detox! It's actually a free guide from Steph's company-you can read about it here. It's two shakes per day and one regular meal. So, we will have the shakes for breakfast and dinner then lunch will be on our own (there is a list of approved foods you can have/make.) It's designed to be for 14 days but since we leave sooner than that, we are just doing 10. Even doing it for a week would be extremely beneficial! I was so excited when Billy told me he will do it with me so we can motivate each other AND because this means I don't have to cook dinner for 10 days! Yessss...
+We had an awesome date night last Friday to celebrate our five year anniversary-a delicious dinner at Rigsby's Kitchen and some drinks after at Forno (LOVE both of these places if you visit the Short North often) It was a great night with my love. Our vacation was sort of our anniversary gift to ourselves, but Billy spoiled me with 3 dozen of the most beautiful roses...(and new Lulu shorts and this bar necklace that I've been lusting over!)
+In the past few years I've gone from not liking Taylor Swift at all to absolutely loving and adoring the girl. She's officially converted me. Her newest song/video Wildest Dreams? Yes please. All of it (looking at you, Scott Eastwood.)
+I'm feeling crazy emotional lately about how big Camden is getting. He is almost 8 months old (and is such a busy little one!), has two teeth, is eating 2-3 "real" meals per day, and the other day we realized he will only be on formula/bottles for another 4ish months! After that, he's like a little boy and then I'm practically sending him off to college.
+I found the perfect drapey tee from Target the other day (see-I can't stay away for that long.) It's so soft and will be perfect for the fall to layer under cardigans or to wear with leggings. I bought the teal wave color. I thought about going back to grab a few more colors, but then noticed they are on sale for $9 online right now, plus an additional 10% off for labor day. #timetostockup
+Kids personalized Christmas jammies...already thinking of ordering Camden a pair because well, it seems every other parent on instagram is doing it. Is it normal to order them this early? Either way, I have no problem joining in on this because...so cute. so cute.
+A lot of my favorite items from the Nordstrom sale are BACK on sale. If you missed out on them then, now is your (second) chance. My picks: this cardigan (only $28), this striped top (perfect for now & fall), and this Nike half-zip (obsessed with these colors!!)
I feel "out" of it in blog land lately (the good news is I'm feeling a little better..thyroid wise..) so if you're reading, please leave me a comment letting me know what you're loving lately!
