one. snail mail.
I don’t know when we started this, but Annabelle has been LOVING sending snail mail to my family in Connecticut. She designs cards or draws pictures for her favorites and even puts the stamp on the envelope. We’ve been having the most fun with Post Pal Club. They make unique pre-stamped postcards personalized with your face! Every kind needs a set of these postcards… and maybe I do too.
two. simple mom outfits.
ICYMI, I started a new series on the blog called Simple Mom Outfits. I have three more posts queued up, but nothing after that. I’m hoping all my readers enjoy seeing the clothing that makes me feel comfortable, confident, and pretty (because all Moms deserve that!).
three. bathing suits for Moms.
Last summer I struggled to find bathing suits that worked with my giant boobs and pregnant belly… this summer I’m having trouble finding bathing suits that won’t make me look like a teenager, but also aren’t too mom-ish. While researching rashguards for the girls, I came across a few suits from Lands End that might just make an appearance at the beach in June.
four. famous in love.
There is something about YA novels that I love – Gossip Girl is always going to be one of my most favorite series of all time – and I’m not embarrassed about that one bit. SO … Famous in Love is a book series turned TV show on Freeform that I’ve binge watched on Hulu (thanks GF) and now want more of. Apparently they’ve not renewed it for Season 2 yet, but it better be coming. Because the last episode ended with quite a bit of goodness and I need to know what happens!!! The only thing that bothers me is that Bella Thorne in real life is so weird… just look at her Insta stories.
five. this backpack on SALE!
If you haven’t heard of Lily-Jade yet, take your lovely self on over to their website and behold the prettiest leather diaper bags you ever did see. I have the Madeline in Camel & Jade – the bag can be worn three different ways (love the backpack!) and holds everything a Mom of two needs when she is headed out of the house. Oh and the 12 pocket washable jade organizer that comes with the bag is probably the greatest invention ever. The coolest part is that it doesn’t look like a diaper bag, nor does it have to be used as one once the kiddies are grown! In case you didn’t hear, all of the Lily Jade bags are on sale for Mother’s Day – it ends Sunday, May 7th at midnight CST! – Also, this photo is my favorite. Thanks Lauren Humphries!
Have a fantastic weekend!
