Mid Week Thoughts & Happenings

Just a bunch of updates from this past week!

+We had our first road trip to Cleveland this weekend with our newly trained toddler + also since Kona has joined our little fam! It really did feel like we had a third kid with us, but she did really well in the car and at Billy's parents house. We celebrated the new baby news with his family (brother in law's baby...NOT ours:)) Camden went the whole weekend without having a single accident which was AWESOME since he was sleeping in a new house and with all the traveling we did in the car! We only had to stop once on our 2 hour drive for him to go potty. So impressed and proud of our big boy.

The boys got to go sledding and got to hang out with their great grandma and lots of other family too! 

+Lately I've been on an organizing kick. I think it's because I really want to keep our house organized and easier to get to things than our previous house - I don't want it getting out of control! I have been buying baskets and glass jars for the pantry like a crazy lady.

+I'm sharing our office space on the blog tomorrow! I will include links with everything that I bought & what all we did to fix it up since we moved in! If you're wondering about our kitchen cabinets, they finished them last Friday and are now hung up in our kitchen! We are in love with the results! I've been going back and forth on the hardware for them and also ordered a sconce for over the sink, so I want to wait until I finish these up before sharing the pictures.

+I have been obsessed with Lil Snappers fruit for the boys! With their "kid-sized" apples, pears, and oranges they help to make preparing their meals a little bit easier (I will take all the help that I can get in this department!) and are perfect for packing in bento/lunch boxes for on the go snacking. Both of my boys eat A TON of fruit so I love how much fruit you get in each bag. (They have a store finder here if you want to look up where you can buy them in your area)

PS-Because some of you might be interested in entering: they are currently having a contest where 11 lucky people can win a Visa gift card and Lil Snappers gift pack valued up to $1,000+! Enter here!

+Couldn't resist buying these adorable rose gold espadrilles. I ordered my true size, 8.5, and they fit great. I really should be banned from shopping at Target for the next 6 months. At least. 

Happy hump day friends! 


  1. Do you have any tips for potty training? Alexander is not showing any interest yet, but he'll be 3 in April so I know it's time (or close to time ...)

  2. I have a question about potty training too. What do you do when you are out? You mentioned you stopped one time, did he sit on the potty where you stopped? We have a little potty reducer seat we are starting to use at home so not sure what to do on the go! Thanks!!

    1. Hey girl! Yes, he just sat on the potty at the public restroom where we stopped. When I run errands and stuff with the boys to Target or the grocery store (for example) he will go in the bathroom there too. We do have a travel potty that is in my trunk for those just in case moments, but haven't had to use it yet. It's hard getting used to having to go in public bathrooms (yuck!), but I didn't really want to be teaching him to pee in the car either. :)
