Oh Friday, it's wonderful to have you back. Is it just me or did this week drrraaaaaggggg?! What do you say we kick off this weekend with a whole bunch of random?

Ready go!

one || I've reached a new low in my life. After sporting a cracked/chipped iPhone screen for several months, I finally got it fixed and now shamefully sport an Otter Box on my beautiful iPhone 6 plus. What stings more than the big nasty case is the "told ya so" I got from Kyle. I can oh so distinctly remember our conversation a few months back... 

Kyle : "You're really putting that stupid case on your phone?"
Me : "Um yeah! It's cute."
Kyle : "You are definitely going to break your phone."
Me : "Psh, no way! I've had an iPhone since the 3 and have never broken a screen once."


two || Valentines day is just around the corner and I'm seriously stumped on gift ideas for Kyle. Because we are super spontaneous and romantic, we have already discussed our Valentines Day parameters. $50 budget for gifts. I cook something special for dinner. Kyle is in charge of dessert. Done and done! Needless to say, we both have a healthy appreciation for clear expectations. Anyway, I need help! A new tool or fishing shirt doesn't scream Valentines Day, but it's probably what he wants. Any ideas??

three || I'm pretty sure I need these. If you follow me on instagram, you are well aware that we are battling a wicked case of cabin fever up here. This winter has not been good to us so far. Lately it's been all frigid temps and non of the fluffy white stuff which means the outdoor activities are scarce. These four walls have me dreaming of bright colors, florals, green grass, sunshine, and a cold beer (post baby of course.) 

four || Mallory's swim lessons begin next week. They are twice a week for thirty minutes the entire month of February. I'm so excited to get her in the pool and watch her experience something new! What I'm not excited about is squeezing this pregnant bod of mine into a swim suit. Lumps and bumps and stretch marks oh my! Phew, thank goodness I'm married. ;) Did having a baby make any of you other moms hate wearing a swimsuit even more than before? I went from bikini lovin' to mom suit in 9 months flat. Literally, this is what my suit looks like. And I like it! 

five || This week Kyle and I moved baby Woody in to Mal's room. By "moved him in" I mean we put his clothes away. I was getting a little concerned that at this point in the game, we didn't have nearly enough prepared for him. Thankfully, I was wrong. After taking an inventory of what we already have, we've come to the conclusion we have a little of everything but not enough of anything. That makes sense, right? Apart from one or two "baby gear" type items, I just need to continue collecting baby boy clothes. Twist my arm why dontcha! ;)

There you have it, my word vomit for today. I hope you have an outstanding weekend planned! We will probably spend ours laying low and watching the Super Bowl. Kyle hasn't been feeling well which means he probably won't be down to hike...probably ;)

Dressin' Up My Jammies

We've finally gotten a bit of a cold snap up here in the last frontier! Hallelujah! Temps have been hovering in the single digit negatives, with wind chills a bit more brisk than that. No complaining from this pregnant lady! My extra insulation has me thinking that 30 degrees is rather warm...

Anyway, when it's bitingly cold outside, I want nothing more than to snuggle up in my jammies and not move a muscle. Alas, life must go on and toddlers must play, so I've figured out how to make loungewear work in the daytime. 

Boots ||  Sorel - Joan of Arctic
Leggings || Target - Seamless
Sweater || Target Maternity (old, also love this one!)
Jacket || Old Navy (old, I do like this year's version in red)
Bag || Longchamp - Large Le Pliage Tote
Scarf || Boutique (LOVE this one even more!)
Lipstick || MAC - Snob
Nails || Essie - I Pink I Can

Happy Wednesday!

Kyle Gets Mushy

Today Kyle is here to answer some mushy gushy questions about yours truly. It's been a few months since we participated in the Blogger Men Tell All  but I had to capitalize on forcing Kyle to say nice things about me the link up's Valentines Day twist.

Ready? Dun dun dun dunnnnnnn!

holla if ya dig my cabin^

What is your favorite memory with your blogger?

Finding out she was pregnant... both times.

What is her best quality?

Independent, strong willed... aka she is down to argue. This is all fine and dandy, except she LOVES to argue when I'm trying to go to bed. The two don't mix in my head because my argue box is no where near my sleeping box.

What is something the two of you enjoy doing together?

Trying new restaurants and going on hikes.

What is your favorite post of hers that she has ever written?

Dog posts. Nothing brightens my day like old yeller pics (sorry mal)

(Read about LT & Schatzi)

How much time do you think your blogger puts into blogging each week? (And what are you normally up to when she's blogging?!)

1 hour a day (really I have no idea). Because I'm such a model husband, while she is blogging I tend to the house, kids and canines, ensuring she is uninterrupted. (really though, probably asleep, watching TV or crying for help with the nastiest diaper I have ever seen)

And that's all he wrote. 

Have a fantastic Tuesday!!
