Spring cleaning has been in full force in our house over the last week! I have mostly been going through clothes and toys (making an even bigger mess), but one thing I have to do almost daily is clean our floors. Don’t get me wrong, it clearly does not happen every day, but because we live in a new-build neighborhood with lots of construction around us, I feel like dirt just flies in and lives on our floors at all times and that makes me want to clean them, often. I recently took a trip to Target (who am I kidding, that’s a daily thing) and picked up a new mop and guys! I am in love with this Freedom® Spray Mop by Libman – one of my latest spring cleaning hacks!
After a week of snow, spring is definitely in the air today. It’s warmer and I can’t help but dream of spring pastels and floral prints! After stalking all the new arrivals from my favorite retailers, I put together this list of items under $50! I am loving the pinks, lavender and sky blues! Even more so, I’m loving those price tags!
I received the bObi Pet in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
Raise your hand if you have been spring cleaning! Raise your hand if you have a toddler (or two) who make messes faster than you can clean them? Right here! Lately, it has been a struggle to keep our house clean. Before kids, it was spotless. Now? Some days, I don’t know why I even try to clean it. But the truth is I have a hard time functioning in a big mess. When our house is a wreck, I can’t write, think, or do anything. I blame it on my slight O.C.D.
This weekend was the first weekend I have really taken a break from the blogging world since Christmas, and it was much-needed. I honestly don’t remember the last day I took “off.” Not good, Logan. Not good. Spending time with my family without worrying about social media or emails, etc. was so freeing and I feel refreshed today. Our Easter weekend began with a little bit of cleaning and laundry because I was way behind (let’s be honest, I always am) and then a birthday party at the zoo for a sweet friend of ours.
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:
Happy March! I am kissing this bipolar weather goodbye (I hope) and welcoming Spring! I am so excited for this month because (1.) tomorrow is my daddy’s birthday and (2.) we are going on our first road trip as a family of five! I am so ready to go to Florida and see our family and the beach, of course! I can’t hardly stand it! So, I have a lot of things on my to-do and bucket lists for this month.
We were supposed to have our family photos done yesterday afternoon, but the weather was pretty ugly, so we rescheduled due to the lovely rain. In happier news, we played outside most of the day earlier this week and it was beautiful. It was cool and cloudy so it felt amazing. My little buddy and I went for a jog and spent the rest of our day playing with chalk, running through mud puddles and playing dress up (See Exhibit A on Snapchat: LoganCan). I also spent part of the day in my new favorite dress! Only part of the day because a lot of it was spent in nike shorts and a tee-shirt. Let’s be real. I love shopping for new dresses during the springtime that will get me through the hot summer days.
Well, I was really hoping we would all feel better by now, but unfortunately we are still under the weather. Playing outside last night in all of the pollen probably didn’t help. We were all yellow by the time we came back inside. Don’t you love this time of year in the south? I thought it would be fun to share a few of my current spring favorites today because I had a little fun perusing my favorite places to shop online and made an entire wish list because so many things stood out to me!
I can’t believe spring is almost here. Well, it definitely IS here in Alabama. The weather has been perfect this week and we have spent more time outside and less time on the computer which has been really nice and very needed. I am so ready for the spring season, warmer weather and all the fun that comes along with a new season. The pollen can stay away, but I love the spring blossoms, the floral print dresses and sandals! So, here are a are ways you can get ready for spring, because it’s definitely coming!
This week has been crazy. The weather has been all of the place, but I’ve still managed to walk every day. Operation Have This Baby is underway. I am so ready. I cleaned the entire house over the weekend, went on a date with my husband and I might have made a few purchases. Oops. What can I say? These Spring 2015 fashion trends are killing me! I am sort of ready to not be pregnant any more so that I can enjoy them. Although, I will miss wearing this baby bump. 🙂
Here are some of the latest fashion trends I am Ooo-ing and Ahh-ing over:
Rompers – I just bought this striped romper at Old Navy and I am in love! It’s so comfortable AND has pockets which is a huge plus in my book. I have been obsessing over so any rompers. I will definitely be in them pretty often this summer!
Colored Suede – These moccasins in Seas Mist in particular are on my wish list. I am loving all of this colored suede that is super popular right now.
Gingham – I purchased this gingham dress from Gap via ThredUp and It has been great! I was able to wear it one time while pregnant, but my almost 39 weeks bump can no longer squeeze in it without looking ridiculous. I am really looking forward to wearing it a lot more this season.
Kimonos – This paisley kimono is from Walk Trendy. I saw it and had to have it! It is no secret that I love wearing kimonos, but during pregnancy, they are even more wonderful. I have loved styling tanks with kimonos and these linen shorts (from Old Navy for $10!) pair perfectly with this one!
Linen Shorts – Again, I felt like I stole these from Old Navy. I mean, $10? I have even been able to wear them during my pregnancy thanks to the forgiving elastic waist. They have been wonderful.
Denim Vests – I showed off my new denim vest a couple of weeks ago, but I am seriously obsessed with it. I have worn it so much already! It goes great with everything!
Birkenstocks – I can’t believe Birks are back “in.” I used to wear Birkenstocks every day for years when I was growing up. They were always my favorite because they are comfortable and go with nearly everything! They have made a comeback and I am really hoping to splurge on a pair in the near future!
What fashion trends are you loving this season?
