Boat Day

Last Friday, we went boating with some sweet friends and we had so much fun! There’s just something therapeutic about being on the water and the kids absolutely loved jumping off the boat and swimming. Since this blog sort of serves as a journal for my little family, I wanted to share a few of the pictures from our boat day here.

 Happy Camper shirt is part of the #nsale, if you’re interested. I think it may be sold out, but there are other cute ones here & here!

Also, Atlas’ face in the above photo is hilarious!

We are doing our first family 5k tomorrow morning. It has been a long time since I’ve done a race, so I’m excited and this will be the first race Dave & I will do with the double stroller! We certainly aren’t going for any PR’s, but we are taking the opportunity to just be outside and exercise as a family. Wish us luck. Or really, wish Dave luck since I’m sure he will man up and be the one pushing the stroller the entire time…except, I’ll take it from him right before the finish line so for the picture I look like the hardcore parent. Just kidding. Maybe.

Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to remind all my girls that the #nsale ends this weekend, so if you’re looking to stock up on any cute fall styles/beauty products, definitely check it out before Monday. A few of my personal favorites not mentioned in previous posts include this hoodie (a good basic piece for winter that I think will be cute with leggings and sneakers), these Zella leggings (I own 2 pairs of these because they are THAT great. A must have in my book because they can be worn on a casual walk with sneakers or dressed up with riding boots or rocked with hunter rain boots on a cloudy day), these deodorant wipes (perfect for after the gym if you know you’re not going to be showering for a while – Hiiiii mama’s! 🙋🏻 BUT, if you’re choosing between these wipes or the Donna Karan deodorant, go with the DK deodorant – it’s amazing!), and these running shorts (I actually think I linked these in a previous post, but they are so nice I’m sharing them twice)!

Aaaand, not included in the sale, but worth mentioning are the new Topshop pieces recently added to Nordstrom’s site. Topshop is killing it lately, ya’ll! So much so, I felt the need to make this collage to show you just how adorable their new items are.

I usually find a lot of their stuff too edgy for my taste, but lately it seems like every time I peruse Nordi’s website something from Topshop winds up in my bag. Seriously – that yellow pleated skirt is just too perfect and I already  snagged this blouse because I couldn’t resist the ruffles going around the collar! If you’re sitting at your work desk, staring at your computer, wondering how to spend the rest of your Friday I just gave you a solid 30 minutes of browsing activity. Just scroll through the new TopShop items and before you know it, lunchtime will be here! I got you, girl. 💁🏻

I hope you have a relaxing weekend, friends! Thanks so much for reading CnC this week. 🙂 I’m hoping to have some posts on motherhood (probably my favorite posts to write at this stage in my life) + some more workouts coming at ya next week so come back and see me!


  1. Loved your post. The pictures are so cute. I ordered the yellow skirt from Nordstrom for work. I thought it was so pretty. Also got the shorts not to run in of course but to work in the yard! 😉 Taking advantage of last minute items while they are on sale!

    • If you don’t love the skirt, I’ll take it! 😉 I bet it will be beautiful on you and I feel confident you’ll love the shorts. They are comfortable and lightweight – perfect for yard work!
