Liquid Gold

Liquid gold aka breast milk is a term you hear a lot around the Conlon household these days. The name was coined by my husband in the hospital when we learned how quickly it would stop Lucas from crying. However, even though it is usually the cure to stop that sweet little cry, breastfeeding has also been one of the most stressful things for me as a mom. At the beginning, I dreaded feeding him. I know that sounds awful, but it was not that pretty picture experience everyone shares. I dreaded when the clock struck that three hour feeding time because usually it was a disaster. Of course, I thought it was me and I was doing something wrong. I found myself in the middle of the night googling youtube videos, article on how to “properly” do it, using items like a breast feeding boppy pillow, but nothing was really helping. Finally, I went to a lactation specialist for help. After she watched our feeding she was in shock about the major major over supply of milk I had and how it was basically drowning him. This is a great “problem” to have, but even though it was a good thing, it had its own challenges. Lucas was either choking which lead to crying (screaming to be exact) or eating too much to0 fast which lead to projectile milk spit up. We both would be covered in milk and it typically ended with him not getting enough milk leading […]

Give Your Sofa a Makeover With Throw Pillows!

We bought this large ottoman sofa from West Elm awhile back, before we knew we would be gutting a house and moving a few months later. Luckily, we were able to make it work in the new space by adding a love seat sofa. I have always been more of a leather girl when it came to sofas but the one we had prior wasn’t that cozy, so this time we went for fabric and comfort. And boy can I tell you these sofas are COMFY!! My husband and I can hardly pry ourselves off them at night to head up to bed. They are the perfect lounge couches & luckily West Elm makes them stylish as well. Since we moved, I have been on a hunt for throw pillows to give these couches some life. I had my eye on multiple Anthropologie ones, but couldn’t seem to pull the trigger because they ranged from $68-$138 for one pillow. I mean they are gorgeous but with the amount of pillows I wanted it wasn’t going to exactly fit into my budget. And let’s be serious, Caroline is always spilling things on everything or literally taking a crayon to it..eeeek. I know those pillows would have made me nervous that they would be ruined everyday. So, I went on a hunt to find nice but affordable pillows. I looked at a lot of places online and found some good options but nothing was really hitting the spot. Then when browsing in Target […]

Three ways to Style a Bandana Scarf

We have always loved the bandana style but have had trouble finding the right material, fabric etc. Then we found this one at Target by Universal Thread. It is perfect…we liked it so much that we got it in the Purple (seen below) and yellow! Below we are showing the three ways we like to style it… Neck tie (Oh and btw this top looks like denim T-shirt but is just cotton. So comfy and is the perfect shirt to pair with your banada. shop it HERE) Hair tie… Bandana tie… We hope you all have a great weekend! Cheers, Meg & Kay

Disney Land Trip….Worth It?

Sadly, I do not think so. First of all, I had no idea the price was so outrageous to get in. It was $135 per adult ticket, therefore a whopping $270 for a day at the “The Happiest Place On Earth”. Thankfully, Caroline was free but still WOW. And, I’m sure if she was a little older their would have been a price and our small little family outing would have been over $300. To me, that price is just INSANE so I already had a bad taste in my mouth about the entire experience. I’m also not a big fan of lines, but like any tourist attractions there are a lot of people. We got lucky and the lines weren’t actually that bad that day (thank goodness) but even waiting 15 minutes with an 17 month year old for one ride seems like ages. I think the biggest thing was the overall vibe I got. It felt so commercial to me, nothing about it seemed organic. For example, to see Mickey you had to of course wait in line, then you were quickly herded into a room, shoved in front of him to snap a picture, and then they gave you a card on how to pay for the picture and access it. No magic moment with Mickey there or real interaction for that matter. Even the $25 headband ears seemed expensive and since I knew Caroline wouldn’t wear them (can’t even sneak  a bow into the girls hair) I went […]

Bundle of Joy Baby Shower for Sisterlove

What is more fun than planning a baby shower for your sister/best friend….nothing! Our best friend, Lesley (since we were 2 & 4 years old) collaborated with me on the entire shower and helped with all the planning & details. We are so lucky to have her be apart of all our big days and life adventures. For baby showers our taste is more subtle, aka not overly baby themed. Les came up with the theme… Bundle of Joy, which was perfect for a January winter shower. We were going for a cozy, winter, intimate feel with baby blue, navy, maroon colors and plaid & wood accents. Obviously, we needed a hot coco bar, Katelyn loves her hot coco and what is more cozy then wrapping up in a blanket and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate!? Also fit the theme perfectly. Les, mastered the hot coco bar… with a ton of candy toppings, cute signs & to top it off handmade cookies that looked exactly like hot coco cups with tiny marshmallows! A doughnut wall was another must since who doesn’t want a fresh doughnut at a shower brunch! And to set them up a doughnut wall was a must. I thought about making the wall, but my husband convinced me by the time I would actually get it made correctly it would cost me more than just buying it (haha…thanks for the confidence babe), but he was right. At the end of the day I didn’t have any […]

OOTW

Outfit of the week! Since we are spending the New Year holiday up in Keystone, I have pretty much been in leggings and PJS :)! But now I am living in the cute bomber coat I got at the Columbia outlet in Silverthorn. I am not a huge outlet shopper but I was very impressed with the Columbia outlet, the deals were great and the inventory was fairly organized. I went home with cozy pair of gloves, a fleece pull over liner for skiing & the adorable bomber lightweight coat in my favorite maroon/port color ! And score I found it on amazon prime, you can shop it here! The pants I have been wearing since Christmas and in these picture are the Zella Live In Legging….love them! They are perfect for everyday or a workout (which I never do but hoping to start in 2018). The scarf I purchased a few years back but recently just came across some very similar ones on amazon for all less than $13 and all the colors are super cute, shop them here. For mountain weather, hiking, snow shoeing etc. a pair of waterproof Sorell Boots are a must, I got these two years ago after the winter season on major sale, I think they are super stylish and are very warm. Sorell has a great selection on their website and they even had a few Sorell styles at the Columbia outlet as well :). We hope everyone had a very happy New […]

White Christmas

Ok y’all we have been obsessed with white booties these days and are pretty much in love with the pair I got at Nordstrom. It is a unique height and the softest leather, not gonna lie thou I had trouble getting them on and off at first. But I used a plastic bag to slide my feet in the first few times and then the leather stretched a bit and now they are perfect. I wear them as often as I can. I really feel they have these boots are made for walking vibe. White booties are really all the rage this winter and here are a few we are loving from at Nordstrom so you all can take part in the trend and a sneak peek of my Christmas card! AND my Boots are 40% OFF… great deal shop them below (not a ton of sizes left but the other colors are gorg too)! A sneak of the Christmas card pics that the lovely Alena of @modaprints kindly did for us and what these booties look like on!     More options, click on pics for details   Happy White Christmas bootie shopping!   xx, Meg and Kay

Funfetti Swimsuit

This was my fourth time searching for another swimsuit the past year and a half… there was preggo suits, just had a baby suit (milk seriously coming in), still nursing swimsuit & then this last one post nursing swimsuit. Not going to lie the chest does not look like it once did nor does my body but hey I got Caroline & I try to focus on that, although it is a big change! Anyways, I came across this swimsuit at Everything But Water in Cherry Creek Mall. I was in love with the multi color crocheted detailing around the edges & the tassels of course! I also, love cover ups so this swimsuit was perfect because it has every color in it, there for goes with all of my coverups :). It was also very comfortable since it didn’t tie around neck and instead fit more like a bra with the two straps connecting straight back. The around the neck suits tend to really hurt my neck but during the nursing months it was impossible to wear anything but the halter style…they had to be held up & covered haha. Anyways, I am really happy with this suit, the top had just the right amount of coverage & the fun colors really made me happy every time I put it on. Details below…..
