This week, my kids have all had big milestones! Sophie turned TWO on Monday! I can’t believe my baby girl is two. It doesn’t seem right. My baby boy turned 6 months on Wednesday. How has it already been half a year? And my Hampton had his end of the year spring program at school yesterday! He did great! Did you catch my video on IG stories? We were SO proud and made fools of ourselves ooo-ing and ahh-ing over him the entire performance while also videoing and taking a million photos. It was hilarious.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you haven’t ordered mom anything, now’s the time to do it! Trust me, don’t try to wait last minute. Two years in a row, our gifts haven’t come in on time because of us (cough, me) procrastinating. So this year, I have made sure to order everything in plenty of time (I hope). I tried to choose a something for every mom of all different ages, but couldn’t resist throwing a few of my favorite things from my wish list in the mix. A few of these are included in the Shopbop sale this week, too, so run, don’t walk because they sell out fast!
One of my favorite stores is having a huge sale that opened today to the public! Shopbop’s event of the season sale is a great excuse to snatch up some of those designer pieces you’ve had your eye on for spring and summer! I have a running wish list on their site that keeps growing and growing because they have so many adorable things. I thought it would be fun to share what is on my wish list. Some are realistic and some…not so much. It’s all in good fun, though, right? So, let’s get to the Shopbop sale…
We leave on our spring break trip in less than a week and we are excited to get away for a few days! I am so looking forward to that Florida sunshine and warm weather! It is going to be cold here again this week, so I am praying we don’t get sick again after having a really warm week last week. Love this Alabama weather, let me tell you! The beach is calling my name!
So, I have had a little fun picking out these adorable spring break essentials for mama and her mini! One thing I love about having a little girl is dressing her and even matching her sometimes when the mood strikes! It’s so fun! I have more fun shopping for her tan I do for myself and I have been obsessing over all the toddler things they make to match mommy now! Here are a few of my favorites:
I took this photo a couple of weeks ago not even thinking about the big Shopbop sale, but I’m glad I did because this tunic is a favorite of mine and it is on sale today! I love this sale because I can pick up amazing pieces from brands I couldn’t afford to buy otherwise. I have already been shopping this morning and can’t wait to show you what I bought and some other favorites! You guys know how much I love to shop a good sale. Right now, everything is on sale. You get 15% off when you spend $200+, 20% off $500+ and 25% off $800+! These brands don’t go on sale very often so when they do, I like to shop for things that have been on my wish list!
Who doesn’t love Valentine’s day? Any day I get to celebrate my love is a good day in my book! Plus, there is normally a date night which is rare for us these days and a box of chocolates of flowers included which is double awesome! Really, though I have always loved Valentin’s day because my mom always made it special for us growing up and I remember always having a brown paper bag in my classroom growing up and we would all bring special Valentine’s to all of our friends at school. It was so fun and I always loved reading them and even saved them for a long time until I was a borderline V-day hoarder.
I love putting together gift guides because it gives me a good excuse to do a little online shopping and perusing! I have put together some of my favorite gifts for Valentine’s day. Personally, we normally keep it simple, but if you are more of a diamond girl/guy shopping for your girl, then go for it! Otherwise, this list is for you!
I LOVE shopping the holiday sales! This year,I did most of mine online, but I did get out with the crowds a little bit on black Friday and got some great deals! It is a family tradition for all the girls to go Black Friday shopping and I am not one to break traditions. Before Black Friday, I had not bought any presents and now I only lack two and a few Santa gifts for my kids. Today, the sales continue with Cyber Monday and I am listing a few of my favorite and picks from each below! Happy holiday shopping!
Fall has finally hit the south, although, it isn’t going to last. Tomorrow the temps are supposed to get back up to 90 degrees, but it will cool off again after that. We have enjoyed the cooler weather and a lot of play time outside this week. It has been so nice getting out more and not feeling like I am about to melt. Pregnancy + southern summer humidity just don’t mix. At. All. This autumn-like weather is very welcomed. Know what else is going on this week? One of my favorite sales! The Shopbop sale is great because so many of my favorite brands (like Madewell, Free People, etc.) go on sale and they rarely do! You can shop the sale here and get 25% off up to $500 purchase or 30% off your purchase of $500+ with code ‘MAINEVENT16!’
This is one of my favorite weekends of the year, not only does Ryan have the day off making it a long weekend for us, there are always great Labor Day Sales! I love to shop sales because I hate paying full price for anything. I love to find a good deal. That’s half the fun of shopping, isn’t it? I rarely pay full price for anything, so I like to rack up on sale weekends. This year I’m focusing on Christmas gifts, but I thought I would share some of my favorite picks from a few of the sales I have listed below. I hope you guys have a great holiday weekend and enjoy a little shopping!
