Friday Round Up

Happy Friday!  A little look at life lately...

{This is our new version of happy hour, ha!  The Henry's Hard Soda's are SO good - orange is definitely my favorite, but the ginger ale is really good, too.}

{Our first farmers market trip last week!  She naturally slept through the entire thing, I swear the louder the place is, the better she sleeps.  We did not end up making a quiche like I mentioned... but we did buy a premade one so that counts, right?  Ps. this tee is only $5 right now, such a good deal!}

{I do love the Insta stories since I'm all about less apps to deal with, but you can't beat the Snapchat filters.}

{We got a new computer!  FINALLY.  We decided to go with the Mac Book Pro Retina and the screen is amazing.  We've always had PCs before this, so we're still getting the hang of it.  Send any tips or tricks this way!}

{This little lady is still sleeping pretty well at night.  She goes down around 9pm and sleeps anywhere from 3-5am and I'll take that for being 7 weeks old.  During the day is a totally different story.  Must. Be. Held. At all times... I try and put her down in her crib and she'll sleep for 15-20 minutes and then she's crying.  I don't know why - I do everything the same as nighttime: swaddle (I use this one during the day because it's cooler), sound machine, door closed, cool room, etc... only thing I can think of is that it's not dark in there?  If I could just get her to take ONE nap a day in her crib, it would be so helpful for me to have some free/alone time.}

Also I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of your amazing and super thoughtful comments from my post on Monday.  I'm still working on responding to all of them, but I'm so glad that I'm not the only one feeling this way.  Maybe together we can bring blogging back to what it used to be!

And finally, a few things I was loving this week...

+ I needed to print square sized Instagram pictures for Haddie's baby book so I tried Foxprint for the first time and highly recommend!  The price was reasonable, they shipped super fast and the quality is great.

+ Individual sized Justins Peanut Butter Cups -- need I say more?

+ My hair has been needing a little pick-me-up lately, so I used this clarifying shampoo and this hair mask (both drugstore) and I was super impressed.  My hair was much shinier and smoother after one use.

+ Old Navy is killing it in the dress department lately.  I picked up this SUPER comfortable and flattering t-shirt dress in black this week and had to restrain myself from buying so many others.  Their dresses are really rivaling Anthro's right now - this one was my favorite. 

+ Not loving?  This Korres skincare set.  I actually felt like the products worked, but holy crap I could not get past the smell.  Everything smells extremely strongly of roses and I just couldn't handle it.  I used the overnight sleeping mask once and had it on for 30 minutes before I had to get out of bed and wash it off because I was getting a headache!  Just save your money and skip it.

Have a great weekend!

  3. Haddie is SO cute, I can't get over it...glad she's sleeping well for you. Hope you find a solution for the day time- one of my friends went through it with her baby and it ended up being a reflux issue. Not saying that's what Haddie's is, but it's crazy how so many different things can be a factor without you even knowing it.

  4. You two are the cutest in that dog-faced snap! YAY for a new computer! You probably saw, but Shay Shull (mixandmatchmama.com) did a whole post about her Mac book earlier in the week and mentioned a few pointers she got in the comments so you should totally look through those!! Hope you have a great weekend, love!!

  5. Really loving Old Navy's stuff lately! You can't beat their sales too. New computers are such a fun purchase! You'll get the hang of an Apple in no time and be totally hooked. Prepare to never go back to a PC!

  6. Laughed so hard at your comments on the skincare smell. I am WAY sensitive to smells and have rejected so many products on that basis alone! I'm going to try that clarifying shampoo - I've been looking for one for a while! ~Hannah (www.HannahAtHomeBlog.com)

  8. Henry's hard soda has been my jam this summer! I just picked up the new cherry cola flavor, which also is delish. So glad that little miss is sleeping pretty well for you! And, yay for a new computer! I used to have a Mac but went back to PC after college because I never understood it lol. Have a great weekend!

  9. OMG that puppy filter- y'all are too precious!! And I definitely prefer Snapchat but can't pick just one.. I have to look at ALL the stories because I'm OCD like that. Ugh. And you will LOVE your Mac- they're seriously the best and I cringe when I have to use a PC now :) Happy Friday!

  10. How adorable is baby girl?! And loving your happy hour drinks, too cute! The curtain rods came in for the nursery, and we still need curtains and everything I read said to get black out curtains so their naps during the day will be just as (or almost as) dark as when they go to bed at night which will help them sleep better. So maybe that's the key to her daytime naps? Cheers to a fabulous weekend <3

  11. Career nanny here... For sleeping during the day, try a swing that goes from side-to-side. Not a mamaroo - an actual swing. I like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Fisher-Price-Little-Snugapuppy-Cradle/dp/B00DGA06JQ/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1471615263&sr=8-3&keywords=baby+swing+side+to+side
    (overly cutesy, I know, but it has worked for all of my newborns...)
    Swaddle as normal and place her in the swing. ;)

  13. Hold on... I GUARANTEE Insta is going to have those fun filters soon enough. They know people want them.
    You just need to crank up the heavy medal every night in Haddie's room :)

  14. Haha the look of your happy hours in my future! Love it!! Congrats on the new computer :) That is exciting!!! Do you guys have black out curtains in the room? We were debating about whether or not we needed to get some so the baby can nap in her room during the day. I love the picture of the two of you at the farmers market, so cute! Those dresses you found at Old Navy are so cute!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  16. You're going to love the Mac! I still barely know how to all of the features on mine and I have been using them since college, but they're so durable! When Greyson wouldn't nap without being held we got black out shades and it made a world of difference!

  17. Dying for a Macbook Pro, so if you find tips, please share! I love seeing those sweet snaps of the two of you! She's an absolute doll! xx, I'm Fixin' To

  18. Yay for a new Mac! You are going to love it! I've had one since 2009 (just got a new one last year), and in that time, my husband went through five PCs! That hard soda sounds super delicious!

  19. You are on it doing baby book stuff! I am SO behind and haven't done Logan's baby book yet! Mostly because I am still looking for the best option for digital layouts. oh well. And ps our Michigan trip got cancelled due to sicknesses..hopefully we'll reschedule for a time when we can meet up!

  20. Aww you guys are so cute as puppies! ;) I hope the sleeping thing gets figured out soon!

  21. Love all these sweet pictures with Haddie girl!! She's so adorable!! Congrats on the new computer! I'm still learning how to use mine too... lol

  22. Aw, that is one sweet baby! My son was the same way with wanting to be held all the time and not napping well. I even remember asking his pediatrician if a baby could be held too much. His answer was nope! Haha.

    That dog filter is my son's favorite. He's 18 months and thinks it's the funniest thing ever!

  23. I need to try that hard soda! Sounds so good! And have you seen all the hard seltzer everywhere now too? It's essentially La Croix with booze! Perfect!

  24. Yes, that is such good sleep! Good job, little girl :) I've heard good things about those peanut butter cups. Need to try some!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh you two are so cute. I totally love the filters on snapchat, they are the best! My friend's little girl was the same way, she always had to be held during the day. The minute you put her down she would crying, real tears and everything. I think she liked being held because she like snuggling. She is 3 now and still loves to snuggle but only at night. During the day, she has to be a big girl, no one can hold her and she will tell you she is a big girl not a baby. haha

  26. We have that paci for Lucas (cant believe hes here) he hates it haha!! Love the snapchat filters!! My Lucas doesn't like to be swaddled, which is a bummer after I got a ton of different kinds haha Hoping baby girl takes a nap alone soon!!!

  28. Y'all are the cutest! And I'm jealous of the macbook pro - I bought the air and while it's great for just blogging, I do a lot more editing for work now and I wish it had more space!

  30. Old Navy is KILLING the dress game right now!

  31. Look at all that pretty dark hair! So cute! I don't understand the IG stories... I can't even get them to play. Lol. But your right, snap filters are the best! I wish I had some advice for naptime! ML isn't much better. If he's not nursing, he wants to be held. I use a carrier quite a bit but like you said, some free time would be nice!

  32. ugh i'm sorry she won't take naps during the day :( my friend's 3 year old was the same when he was a baby, slept great at night but never napped properly. she tried and tried and would listen to him scream and finally she just gave up, like screw what he's 'supposed' to do, she felt wrong letting him scream you know? her second baby was the opposite, napped great but didn't sleep well at night. how is Haddie with baby wearing?
    anyway i hope she starts napping miraculously soon ;)
    i'll be checking out both of those hair things from target - my hair is feeling so blah lately. and that old navy tshirt dress is too cute!
