My Favorite Hair Prodcuts

Monday, March 25, 2019

Hey Mama's! Let's chat hair products, which actually makes me giggle to even type this because I am the furthest thing possible from a hair "expert," in fact, if you watched me dry my hair I would lose all hair credibility... but, I do want to share some hair products that I keep coming back to! 

My hair texture is a bit unique, I have a lot of "fine" hair, which also happens to be naturally curly/wavy and at times can get pretty dry. Within the past year, I rarely wear my hair curly and rely on dry shampoo and hair spray for day 2 and sometimes even day 3 hair. With that being said, I am not one of those blessed ladies who can wear her hair down for day 2 and 3... when I wake up my hair is such a hot mess and the amount of time, energy and heat that I would have to put into styling it to wear it down would be a waste. of. time. 

Friday Favorites: March 21st

Friday, March 22, 2019

Happy Friday friends! This week went by SO fast, the little ladies and I were outside as much as possible and it felt SO good. Being able to head outside once Emmy and Isla are up from their naps makes that hard 4:00- 7:00 time frame go by so much faster, plus that fresh air makes the little ladies fall asleep the second their heads hit their pillows!

The girls are on Spring Break next week and we have some really fun things planned to make their week special. We ended up booking one night away in Lake Geneva, one of our very favorite places and can't wait for the family time away. The girls and I will also be spending part of our week baking, crafting and decorating a little bit for Easter, which we always look forward to! Speaking of Spring Break, my very first "favorite" this week includes this week's blog recap and my post on our road trip essentials!

2: Five Photos From Our Week

The one photo I snapped at the wedding Scott and I went too this weekend, 
we had the best time in the city! And if you remember my post from last week (Mom Style: Wedding Guest Dress edt.), I ended up wearing the green dress, which was also perfect because it was St. Patrick's Day weekend!

My little book worm, we finished the entire Ivy & Bean series and are about to start the Mercy Watson series next, I love reading chapter books with my big girl!

Can you tell my little wild woman was happy to be outside!? The sunshine felt SO nice!

This is the first time Isla "played" outside, last summer she wasn't crawling or walking yet in the Spring/Summer, we can't wait to see her run and play with her sisters this year!

I shared this throw back on my Instagram this week, look at that sweet little baby Avery! I was pregnant with Emerson in these photos, it's hard to remember a time when there were only THREE of us!

3: A Few of our Favorite Costco Finds- Our family loves a good trip to Costco, we aren't sure why, but the girls LOVE Costco! It might be the fact that we get the girls dinner there after we shop, I mean you can't beat $2 slices of pizza, topped off with soft serve for dessert! Here are some of our Costco favorites, are you a Costco shopper? Tell me what I HAVE to grab next visit!

Their chips and salsa are the BEST, the salsa has the perfect "kick" to it. 

This organic pasta is delicious, it's the only pasta we buy and Kirkland's sauce is a favorite with the little ladies too!

Hands down, the BEST prices for organic string cheese and Spindrift.

I'm not sure if they have the street taco kit at all Costcos, but it is the BEST! Scott and I always grab one to have for dinner that night and the lime cilantro sauce is delicious!

4: Mom Style- Ok, so "mom jeans," Scott isn't the biggest fan, ha! But, these jeans are SO comfy and they were only $22 from Target, so even if the trend comes and goes, I'll definitely get my $22 worth out of them. My whole outfit is actually from Target, I could wear this pink cardigan everyday, it's the perfect cardigan for Spring!

5: Weekend Plans- We have a somewhat busy weekend ahead, but it's packed with a ton of fun, a date night with our neighborhood friends, a first birthday party, brunch with girlfriends and hopefully some time to organizing this HOT mess house of ours! It may be a little premature, but I would love to swap out my girl's winter clothes for their spring clothes, I'm just SO ready to pack away those big winter jackets... but it may be a few weeks too soon.

That wraps up another Friday Favorites, next week I will FINALLY be sharing all the details of Isla's first birthday party, along with some tips on how to have a "Pinterest" worthy birthday party without breaking the bank. Have a great weekend with your family, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!

Rainy Day Looks for Girls

Thursday, March 21, 2019

Spring has arrived and my little ladies and I can't wait to head OUTSIDE, even if that means splashing around in a few puddles. My girls LOVE wearing rain boots and I love that they can slip them on and off by themselves! I couldn't help but notice all of the adorable rain jackets, boots and even umbrellas that are out for my little ladies right now. Any of these trios would make the best Easter basket gift too! 

I have invested in Hunter boots for my girls and they hold up so well, in fact Isla can probably fit into the first pair that Avery had and that Emmy wore too. Knowing my girls, they would go crazy for the clear glitter rain boots as well, maybe we will have to add a pair to our collection! Which trio is your favorite!?

Let's Chat: Road Trip Essentials

Monday, March 18, 2019

It's almost time for Spring Break around here and I thought it would be the perfect time to show you one of my favorite "Mom hacks." A few months ago I decided we needed something to help us keep our car organized, I of course turned to Amazon Prime and found the Mimmo caddy by Mollie Ollie. I was looking for something that I could store some snacks and activities that the girls could do in the car during road trips or even for the times we are early for preschool pick-up. I should mention, we are the proud owners of a mini-van with a DVD player, however, we do limit the use of the DVD player.

When our caddy isn't packed for a road trip, it's perfect for storing an extra set of clothes, extra diapers and wipes, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, all those little things you may need while out with the kiddos but don't want to weigh down the diaper bag with! I also love that there is a zipper compartment on the side of the caddy, I threw in some first aid supplies like band-aids, Neosporin and even a few essential oil rollers (Stress Away and Thieves to be specific). Overall, the caddy is super sturdy and provides plenty of storage, it's also really light weight and just the right size to store under a captains chair seat. The longer handles make it easy to throw over you shoulder if you wanted to take it with you, I'm thinking of how great it would be to just carry this caddy into your hotel room so your kiddos have some toys to play with during vacation! So many great uses, affordable and the best part of course is that it's PRIME, gotta love that fast shipping, read below to see what Avery and I packed our caddy up with, now we just need to plan a road trip!
