6 Things I'm Excited About


If you haven't heard the good news yet, IT Cosmetics is now available online and in store at SEPHORA! Happy happy dance! Beyond excited about this. My entire skin and make up routine consists of IT products. I swear by their CC cream.

Currently they have nine exclusives at Sephora, which are apart of their IT Cosmetics™ Color-Infused Skincare™ line. I plan to do a review on a lot of these products soon, but I did want to share the ones that are now available at Sephora:

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm; $38 (This balm is SO GOOD! It's a cleanser, makeup remover, and anti-aging serum in one. )

The makeup melting balm and under eye cream are honestly amazing. The skin perfecting brush makes foundation go on perfectly. IT is killing it with these products!


(a) Camden starts "school" tomorrow! I seriously feel like I'm sending him off to college in way...ha!

He has been in in-home care with a nanny (who we love and Grayson will still be going to her) since he was 13 weeks old, but now that he is almost 2 he really needs more structure and we think he will thrive in more of a classroom setting! I toured a bunch of early preschools and daycare's the past few weeks (which is another reason why my blog took a backseat-I have been so busy with this) before finding the one we decided on. Although change is hard and I'm a little nervous, we are really excited about it because we know he is going to learn so much and we think he will love it! It's also only a mile from my work and within 5 minutes from our nanny so it's location is super convenient. We got him a little backpack and I've been reading this book from his favorite series to him in preparation. :) First day of school pictures most likely coming soon...

(b) Watching my boys relationship grow...Camden is just obsessed with Grayson. He wakes up in the morning and asks for "baby", and tells him he loves him before he goes to bed at night. I honestly can't describe how happy these two boys make me...I just feel so lucky to be their Mom.


I have been using Octer (a new to me website) when shopping online lately. It is a unique marketplace of the biggest US stores where you can shop departments or shop by store. I like it because it compares thousands of brands and shows the nearest matches, so you'll always get the perfect price and possibly discover products from stores you hadn’t considered before.

I just got this adorable cable knit sweater and hat set for Grayson by ordering through Octer...


FOOTBALL SEASON! This gives me a great excuse to whip up some yummy game day food. Crock pot meals, chips and dip, and football games kind of just go together...am I right? The only other thing I need is a fall scented candle burning and then I total fit the description of basic.

 I made sausage dip the other week and served with tortilla chips. It's my favorite dip recipe because it's so easy and everyone loves it! It's just white velveeta cheese, 1 lb. of Jimmy Dean sausage, and a can of Rotel!


 Have you seen Jack Rogers new rain boots? They come in a bunch of cute colors and I need them...

 shop them all here

 Oh, and these Nike shoes...perfect for athleisure wear and for fall/winter!


The new series This Is Us. Who else is watching??

PS: Grayson is TWO months old today! Post coming this week after his doctors appointment!

Happy  Tuesday! Don't forget to enter my giveaway from yesterday if you haven't already! 


  1. I LOVE It Cosmetics! I've been slowly buying their product line from Ulta. I need to try some of those moisturizers and creams! good luck with Cam's first day of school. I know that can be hard on a mama, but I'm sure it'll be great!

  2. Is there a huge difference between an in home daycare and a Nanny? We have been looking for part-time childcare and the options are endless these days!!

  3. IT products are some of my favorites! I swear by their CC cream and love the cleansing balm! It works so well!

    1. I am obsessed with the cleansing balm too...it's amazing and does such a good job. My skin is always so soft after using it!

  4. Yay for toddler 'school'! My Cam loves going now! It was definitely an adjustment, but he loves his teachers and has made so many friends. I love that he gets social interaction and does so many fun activities! He will love it! And I have had my eye on those nikes for a while... may have to pull the trigger here soon!
