A Random Picture Post + Giveaway Winners Announced!

Happy Fri-Yay! This week flew by for us, which is just the way I like it! We’ve got big plans tonight of catching up on the Bachelorette (JoJo is my girl crush). I’m hoping most of our weekend we will be spent by the pool, although Dave does have to work a bit, so we’ll see.

But before we head into the weekend, I wanted to share some pictures from life lately and a few things I’m loving!

My {current} favorite snack…

Reese's Snack Mix

If you take nothing else away from this blog post today (& there’s a good chance you won’t because I’m just rambling today) – take special note of this snack mix. It is addicting and it takes all my will power not to eat it for breakfast. If you see it in your grocery store, grab as many as your cart will hold.

My Current Cravings…

Cute Romper

This new romper by Albion Fit. How freaking cute is that? And they say you can even run in it, but I would totally rock that thing on date night. I think I’ve showed Dave a picture of that romper no less than 15 times. I’m super good at dropping subtle hints.

Jetsetter Bag

Okay! Have ANY of you heard of Henri Bendels? Whenever people ask me what I miss most about living in NYC, I usually say Henri Bendels and they look at me with a blank stare and I’m all, “Wait! You’ve never heard of Henri Bendels?!” It is one of my all time favorite stores (I’m pretty sure it is my sister’s #1 favorite store) and they have the cutest bags/jewelry/accessories/sunglasses. I have this bag pictured above in black & grey and I use it as a diaper bag and it is AMAZING because it is a backpack (so my hands can be free, which is awesome because I need my hands to carry ALL the babies), but it can also be worn as a purse. I love when I see a picture of a fashion blogger or Taylor Swift wearing this bag because I’m like, “OMG! That’s my diaper bag!” And for one split second I feel like I’m totally with it. Anyways, this new cognac color was just released and I’m lusting after it big time and I wanted to share it here for any of my mama friends looking to invest into a stylish diaper bag. And if you haven’t checked out Henri Bendels, go to their website. Seriously. Go now.

My Naughty Boy…

My Naughty Boy

This kid is so gosh darn cute, but boy can he be naughty. We were walking the dogs last night and the kids were sitting in their stroller and all of a sudden Andi Rose started screaming and I looked down and Atlas was biting her leg. He immediately said he was sorry and kissed her and tried to hug me because he knows that’s the quickest way to avoid getting in trouble. He is such a naughty little booger and he knows how to turn on the charm when he needs it. Lord help me.

My little fashionista…

My little fashionista

I love picking out my clothes for things like church, Bible study and date night but I love picking out Andi Rose’s clothes even more. The other week when my mom was visiting she said, “Andi Rose has a cuter wardrobe than all of us.” She’s totally right – this little thang is always styling…except when I just let her run around in her diaper because sometimes there’s just nothing cuter than a baby in a diaper. But anyways, she was killing me in this little hat at the pool the other day. And for those of you wondering, No. She does not use my neulash. Those are her natural eyelashes and I’m super jealous.

My jam…

Count On Me

I have my nephew, Pierce, to thank for introducing us to this song. Atlas is now obsessed with it and we listen to it no less than 8 times a day and I love it because Atlas sings every single word and Andi Rose dances her little booty off to it (even though it isn’t a booty-dancin’ song – she would shake her booty to church hymns because that’s just how she rolls). The lyrics are so sweet and it’s been the perfect tune to play in our house this week. Bruno Mars can really do no wrong in my book – I always love his music.

My new running shoes…

New Running Shoes

My running shoes were getting pretty worn down, so Dave surprised me with new shoes and I can’t believe what a difference I can feel in my legs now that I have some cushion back during my runs! I’ve sort of been getting that itch to sign up for a long distance race and I think having new shoes may be just the added push I need to get me to find a race and commit! Also, here is picture proof that I really do wear my Bic Bands during every single workout…


Ignore any gray hairs if you spot them. I’ve tried pulling them out, but I think that myth is true. When you pull out 1, 7 more grow back. I blame Atlas & Andi Rose a little bit.

My treat…

Kai Perfume

I’ve used Kai products on and off since high school and I’m obsessed with the smell. I think I’ve actually mentioned it on the blog before. Anyways, I snagged this little roll on perfume + a bottle of lotion during the #nsale last week and I’ve loved wearing it every day. Last night when we got in bed, Dave said, “Wow! You smell good!” It’s just a good clean everyday scent. Check it out, if you’re in the market for new perfume or lotion.

My best friend…

My Babes

I’m so so glad to have Dave back home after almost 10 days apart. Since we had to cut our Florida trip short for him to fly to Pennsylvania, the kids and I went several days without seeing him and we all missed him so much. He did a giant water slide last night in his work clothes with Atlas because Atlas didn’t want to do it alone. Dave was’t wearing a bathing suit, but he didn’t want Atlas to miss out on the fun so he just owned that water slide in his work gear. Isn’t that so great? I married him because he was hot, but turns out he is also fun and selfless. Bonus! 😉

Giveaway Winners

Last night, I wrote down all the names for each giveaway and Dave drew the names out of a glass container (I’m sure there is a techy way to do giveaways online, but we old school). I was so stressed about it because I seriously wanted everyone to win. I told Dave we need to win the lottery so I can give away all the things (and buy all the cute rompers and handbags, obviously). I would totally be like the Oprah of bloggers.

Anyways…the winners are…

  • Face Edition (Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillowcase): Mo_Likens 
  • Hair Edition (Kerastase L’Incroyable Blowdry Serum): NancyWander
  • Fitness Edition (Yoga Mat + 3 Bic Bands): LianaGarmon
  • Lip Edition (Dior Lip Maximizer + Rose Salve Lip Balm Trio Pack): Kathilanoue

If you are a winner, check your e-mail or IG direct messages, as I will be reaching out to you today. 🙂 I’m super excited for each of you to try a few of my favorite things!

Thank you so much to all who participated. I really do wish I could give away all these things and more to each one of you! I had so much fun reading all your comments and I hope to host more giveaways in the weeks to come!
