Thanks so much to everyone that participated in my Roll Call post on Tuesday! It was so fun to hear from so many of you and has definitely given me new blogging inspiration. More lifestyle/motherhood and shopping posts coming right up! This week went so fast. I had all these grand plans for blogging and they just kind of got away from me. I'm looking forward to a weekend at home with nothing to do - just catching up on a few things and hanging out with my little family! And maybe sneaking in a couple of the 10 best Halloween movies to watch on Netflix. But for today's post, a little bit of everything...
In case you've been living under a rock... Shopbop is having a sale! Most of their stuff is a little over my price range, but there is a lot of goodness around the $50-100 mark and it doesn't hurt quite as much when you're taking 25% off. This dress that I wore to a wedding last weekend and my new favorite flats are both included and the initial necklace I've been drooling over is on its way to me. If I could really splurge, I would get this cashmere wrap scarf in gray. GAH. It's gorgeous. (Use code MAINEVENT16 at checkout.)
I have the best recipe for you (the picture doesn't do it justice). This chicken and mushroom dish is to die for. Nick's mom made it for us as our first meal home with Hadley and it was the most delicious thing ever after hospital food. I finally decided to make it myself this past weekend and then proceeded to eat it for 4 days straight. The prep time took me a little longer than the recipe states, but worth it to do on a Sunday!
Speaking of Hadley... girlfriend slept through the ENTIRE night for the first time this week! She fell asleep about 8:45pm and didn't wake up until 4:30am - which is usually close to her middle of the night feeding time - so I laid there waiting for her to start crying, but she was just chatting to herself and then fell back asleep all on her own! And then proceeded to sleep until 7:50am! I couldn't believe it, it was like the most amazing thing ever. We have been really struggling with sleep the past couple of weeks (can the 4 month sleep regression happen early?), so a full nights rest was seriously needed.
I need a new mascara. Suggestions? I've long been a fan of They're Real, but it's just not doing it for me right now. Drugstore or more expensive, I don't care - just something that works! Happy Friday, friends!
