My Favorite Jewelry

I added a few new items to my wardrobe from Old Navy recently. This rosy pink blouse is one of them, and this button up gingham top is another! I know my mirror is so dusty, I need to remember to keep windex up here!

Behind the Screens:

Emily figured out how to pinch a puff with her pointer finger and thumb and feed herself! This is one of my favorite milestones! I can set her up in her highchair, scatter a few small bits of food on her tray, and keep on cooking or working in the kitchen!

Justin and I are in the middle of making Kindergarten decisions for David (which is WILD by the way because I just birthed him last week). There is a lot to think about and I’m so thankful we have a handful of great schools to choose from. It’s one of those decisions that is kind of a “right or left” decision versus a “right or wrong” decision. And we continue to remind ourselves that if our first choice isn’t right, we can always switch it up next year.

I spoke at a working mom’s group a few weeks ago and it was wonderful to be in a room with other mom’s in a similar boat. I met so many wonderful people and hope to get to another event they host soon.

These look like the perfect “game day” app!

So I always dust a little secret brightening powder on top of my under eye concealer but this idea makes total and complete sense and I’m going to try it and report back.

I’ve been wearing Nude Mood by Essie from their Treat, Love & Color line for the past few weeks. I’ve found that 2 coats creates the nicest opaque color!

I’m still quite active on Pinterest and am always adding to my hair, beauty, food, and home boards! You can check out my page here!

I have these new balance sneakers in a different color and absolutely love them. I wear them to bootcamp or just running errands!

Did you catch yesterday’s Day In The Life vlog? I had a lot of fun filming it and I cannot BELIEVE how natural David was on camera!!

I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!

I actually just picked up the blouse from Old Navy while doing a lot of damage in their weekend sale!

I’m always on Pinterest, too. It seems to be making a bit of resurgence after popularity waned a couple years ago .

Old Navy doesn’t do much for me, but where did you get the cute sparkle/dotted jeans?

Have you tried this new natural nail polish?

I tried the under eye concealer trick, but using the original urban decay primer potion. It wasn’t perfect, but I think I need to play around with it. I’ll look forward to any updates you give if you try the Marc Jacobs one. Now following you on Pinterest πŸ™‚

Love those milestones when kids can start doing simple tasks themselves – can’t wait until the day mine can take their own showers!

What color do you have in the New Balance shoe? Just curiou…

They’re regular jeans. It’s the dirt on her mirror making them look dotted or sparkly.
