Spring Fashion || Kid's Edition

About a week ago, I shared my personal fashion & beauty wish lists for spring and promised one for the kiddos in our life. I still can't entirely wrap my head around dressing Mallory in anything but functional play clothes (read : Do toddlers really wear white skinny jeans, sun dresses, maxi skirts, etc??) I think I've managed to find plenty of equally cute, practical pieces for toddler girls.  

Take a look at some things I have my eye on for Mallory!

Baby boy fashion?! What??? Speaking of not being able to wrap my head around something...am I really shopping for BOY clothing?! In a few short weeks I will be dressing a BOY! Eeeeek! Before we hop into the baby boy fashion wish list, can we please talk about how many fewer clothing options there are for boys? I mean browsing through the baby/kids clothing sections in Target, it seems there are about 1/3 as many options for little boys as their are girls! I thought dressing boys was supposed to be easier... 

Regardless, here are some of the things I'd like to see baby Woody sporting during the warmer months this year.

Tell me, do you go for function over style for your little's clothing? And what's up with the boys section?!

Hopes & Plans [Weekly Link Up]

Welcome to the "Hopes & Plans" link up! Any hopeful or goal-oriented post is welcome! It can be your life's dreams, aspirations, monthly goals or simply your chore list. Share with us! I hope for this to be a place where we can come to be inspired and motivated by the things other people have in the works. The possibilities are endless! Most things in life begin by first having a hope and then some kind of plan.

Happy happy Monday! We have a thrilling day ahead.... NOT! Just seeing the OB. ;)

Let's see how I did on last week's hopes & plans...

|| See Baby Woody in a growth scan. Yes and it was amazing! Our boy was weighing in at about 5 lbs 8 oz at 33 weeks and appeared to be growing perfectly. He had his tiny little fingers in his mouth and even gave us a good shot of his chubby little face. :)

|| Update my "about" page. Check! No more single image about page on this blog. 

|| Make one of these arrive at my doorstep. Ok, this one didn't happen but read the next bullet point and you'll see why...

|| Go to Ulta!!! My pressures have been pretty stable, so I allowed myself an Ulta outing. (Such a rebel, I know.) While I was there I picked up this CC cream and couldn't say no to this foundation brush! I've only used it once, but I totally enjoyed it. I'll keep you posted...


This Week's Hopes & Plans : 

|| Order Mallory a "Big Sister" t-shirt. What else would she wear the first time she meets "brother?!" Ha! (So funny that she can't manage to say his name, it's no more complicated than "brother.")Do you have any recommendations as to where we can find such a shirt?

|| Finish packing our go bags. Since we are on a slightly condensed timeline, we pack our bags a little early around these parts. (If Baby Woody is like his sister, he could arrive in TWO WEEKS!) Baby's bag is ready to go (although I can't find the damn outfit I  really want him to come home in and I'm not "allowed" in the crawl space to search for it...errrrr #bedrestproblems) and Kyle's bag is ready to go, I just have a few odds and ends to add to mine. 

|| Tone my hair. Is at home toning a thing? I need to scour the inter webs about this one... If you follow me on instagram, you know I had my hair colored last week. I love the way it turned out, but I would love for it to be just a touch cooler in tone. Not to mention we have really hard water at our house, so the brassiness will only stay away for so long...

|| Get dressed. The days of all leggings all the time are here. Uggggh! It's all fun and games for the first few days, then you just start to feel sloppy and gross. (As if I don't already feel that way at 34 weeks on bed rest...) I need a little "getting dressed" accountability check!

There you have it. Lofty, world changing goals over here this week.... What about you? What do you have going on?

Sick & Lipstick Dupes

Hey heyyyy! We are passing around some kind of nasty bug here at our house. Mally kicked things off with a nice round of pink eye and some kind of stomach funk. Kyle was just a day behind her with the most vile stomach bug EVER and I'm bringing up the rear with a sweet head cold. My mom and sister have managed to dodge our symptoms for the most part but their luck may be running out. Dun dun dun dunnnnnn.

So, instead of blabbering any longer, I'm going to send you to my friend Kelsey's blog. Kelsey is on a  maternity leave of sorts, so she let me take over and share some of my favorite lipstick dupes! Make sure you stop by and let her know what some of your favorite dupes are! 


We are off to the third and final OB appointment for this week. Wish us luck! :)
