Friday Things

Happy Friday! Thanks for all of the love and awesome questions on yesterdays post! The first edition of Asked & Answered coming right up next Wednesday. And don't worry - the sleep post will be coming, too!

This week was a good week. After a previous couple of crappy weeks, I feared 2017 was going to be terrible, but I think it's starting to redeem itself. This week brought an army crawling Hadley (omg), an overweight Brady that needs to lose 10 pounds, a girls night out disguised as a Junior League meeting, buying the worlds worst dry shampoo (don't waste the $4), and trips to the gym to continue my couch to 5k program (I'm up to running 8 minutes at a time!).

Let's start with Hadley! Girlfriend is on the move and the game has officially changed. Gone are the days of just setting her down and getting stuff done. Now I set her down and straight to the wall outlets she goes. Why?! I only wish I had invented the outlet covers, I bet that man is a bazillionaire because I just had to buy about 800 of them for our house. And can someone tell me how to change a diaper on a baby that won't stop moving? Please tell me there is a secret mom tip or trick I'm missing that doesn't involve body pinning my baby that just wants to roll onto her back and crawl away from me during the eight now extremely annoying times a day I change her diaper?

A much better purchase for my girl this week was a BEACH BAG. I know, it's January. And she's six months old. But come summer, she is going to be rocking this bag and I can't even wait. I just wish there was a matching adult size one...


I take any chance I can at matching us though and did it twice this week. White sweaters and jeans below, and then gray sweatshirts and leggings the next day. I love it a little too much. And the baby winter hats kill me. I can't stop buying them! This one is from Zara.


Now that Hadley is sleeping in her own room, we had to rearrange the furniture to get her giant dresser off of the vent. It wasn't letting enough heat into the room - especially with the door closed - and it would be freezing in there at night. I was a little sad about the new set up, but I tried everything I could to fix the temperature problem (other than a space heater because I've heard too many horror stories about those things!), so this was our only option.


Ahh, girls night. I mean Junior League meetings. The best chance I have at wearing scarves (Hads loves to choke those around my neck) and heels. Guess where these boots are from? Target! I was kicking myself for not buying these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a few weeks ago, and then I stumbled upon these guys on our weekly Target trip. They are super comfortable, but they do run small, so make sure to size up. And they stay up really well around the leg! That's always my complaint with cheaper boots, but no problems with these so far. A very good budget buy.

Don't mind all of the mirror smudges. Cleaning is on my to do list for today ;)


Ps. has anyone else been having trouble loading Nordstrom's website this week? Happy weekend!

  6. Man, major kudos to you for your all white stuff in your house. I'd be worried it wouldn't stay white...exp when a kiddo discovers crayons ;)

    Not going to lie, the baby army crawl is super cute!

  12. Love the JL outfit!! I felt the same way you do about scarves but with dangly earrings and necklaces - I feel I am still hesitant to put on danglies if I'm with little man, and he's ALMOST FOUR. Can't believe the boots are Target - I'm in desperate need of tall boots as I've officially walked right through the soles of mine, eeeks.

  15. That beach bag!!! Love your outfit too! Girls night sounds fabulous and is always good for the soul. So the diaper changing problem...I dont have that issue yet but I am already reading tips on how to help with that when it becomes a thing. This article has a pillow in it that sounds like it could help? There are some other cool products in here anyways...and a few that I already have! https://www.romper.com/p/12-baby-products-invented-by-moms-that-make-life-easier-15235
