Outfit of the Week

Happy Thursday! Okay friends, I cannot get enough of these pants. They are beyond comfortable, light weight and a great fit (high waisted, momma style). I love that I can wear them around the house while I’m running after Caroline, cooking, cleaning or just relaxing since they are so cozy. I can also jet out of the house in them and feel put together unlike sweats. You can basically wear them with any top too which is a bonus! I like tucking my shirt in with them because of the high waist and feel like it looks better since the pants flow. My go-to pairings are our favorite target tees, a bodysuit or just a simple button up like the one below (of course from target and only $17.99). And these Tory Burch sandals are a must for summer, I wear them almost everyday! They are a little pricey (I know sister!) but they are comfortable and last for a long time. I feel like this outfit is very Hamptons Chic, almost like I am prancing out of one of those gorgeous houses in Revenge. This look will be a staple all summer long! Cheers, Meg

Bedroom Reveal

As most of you know we completely renovated our new home. My husband and I made all the design decisions, so it was a lot of work, but it has made the final result that much more special. Our master bedroom is one of the rooms that looks the most drastically different. We were able to take out all the built ins (which allowed for extra space), added wood floors and a fireplace. Here are the before… And the after… We still need to finish decorating the room, but the bigger items are complete which I consider a win for now. I have a bed to sleep in and dresser drawers for my clothes so it is live-able. With the wood floors, I knew a rug was a must so that was one of the first decorative items I was searching for. I fell in love with this rug because of the vibrant colors and the design was fun. With the dozens of colors, most sheets and throw pillows will match. Also, this is the bedroom set we got which was super affordable and the headboard is gorg! I like to live in space awhile before I finalize all the decorating (it feels so final to me) so now I’m on the hunt for unique bed side table lamps and cozy sheets. Anyone have any good suggestions? Where do you like to shop for home décor? Cheers, Meg

Lord & Taylor sale finds

I try to visit Lord & Taylor every time we are visiting my husbands family. They have the best deals and then always have extra discounts when you get to the register. It isn’t the best shopping experience but if you go in ready to hunt, you will find some great deals & leave so happy! This last time I found some great staple pieces! Since having little Caroline, I have noticed my clothes just don’t fit the same and a lot of them I am not very comfortable in. So I am slowly building up a new wardrobe, everything shifts just a little here & there after a baby and the boobs…don’t even get me started. Nothing fits the same on top! All these pieces provide me the coverage I want with the cute style. More info & videos on our insta story. If you head over to shop these or any items from L&T online make sure to use code JUNE at checkout to get an extra 30% OFF!   Bell Sleeve Shift Dress   Cutest overalls Stripped button down tank Stripped Cotton BCBG Blazer Distressed Long Denim Jacket Happy Shopping!

Guest Blogger-Momma, Oil/Health Guru…Lesley Meyer

Becoming a mom has without a doubt been the best thing I have ever achieved (and am still working to achieve everyday). I say “achieved” because it is something that has taken a lot of effort, courage and patience. Without even considering the additional challenges that come with parenthood, like the ones that can come along with getting pregnant, not to mention LABOR; just being a parent that you are proud to be is an extraordinary challenge and achievement. Before I had a baby, I never really understood why everyone said raising children is the hardest job in the world. When I thought of something being “hard” I would think of something extremely physical or that required hours of studying, practicing, or learning about in order to achieve. While parenting does present some physical and mental challenges, I think the thing that makes it the hardest job in the world (which I now agree with) is that it is constant. You never get to walk away from it. Balancing the life you used to live before kids and your life now with kids can be tricky. Worrying about your kiddos every day hoping they are well fed with the BEST food, praying they don’t get sick, making sure they are learning and growing and happy while also trying to make sure you still get some quality time with your spouse and friends and family….it’s a lot. And for the working moms, that is a whole other ball game. It is […]

Saturday Snacking

As most of you know, we love our sweets! I (Kay) am also world’s biggest snacker. Skinny Dipped Almonds are my new sweet/snack obsession. Not only are they delicious and hit the spot for my sweet tooth, but they are also healthy. Who doesn’t love that combo? Made with real ingredients they have protein, fiber, organic finishes and dark chocolate. I’m starting to consider myself a health nut now that I’ve added these to my piggy habits ha. The story behind the brand is also amazing. Check it out here. The company was founded by a mom and daughter (any mothers dream) after a simple discussion on a long road trip about why chocolate covered almonds have so much chocolate on them. And, just like that – their company was born. They set off to create an almond that was lightly dipped in chocolate hence the name skinny dipped. The almonds are also dusted with either cocoa, raspberry, and dark chocolate. My favorite is the raspberry, Meg’s favorite is the dark chocolate and Chet loves the cocoa (Dewey is allergic to almonds so he couldn’t give his opinion). Clearly, all the flavors are so tasty! As we are running around each day, Skinny Dipped Almonds are something we always have in the diaper bag, in our desk drawer, car and/or purse to quickly eat on the go to satisfy our hunger. Check out the site here and purchase yourself a few packs to get you through your busy day –  so […]

Must Have Baby Items- Add Them to Your Registry NOW!

Katelyn’s Must-Have Baby Items (That Meg, Luke & Caroline 100% agrees with, pics are the proof) When you are having your first baby, the list of items that you need can be pretty overwhelming! I remember trying (key word trying) to do my registry and I didn’t even know where to start! Luckily, my sister and bestie Lesley took over per usual and did my registry for me. In hopes to help those soon to be mamas out there that don’t have a sister or Lesley to knock it out for them, here are 8 items I could not live without since Lucas has arrived! The Julien Canvas Set – Leader Bag  Price: $195 Why I Love It: Not only is it a cute stylish diaper bag, it’s super practical when it comes to the design to help you be as organized as possible. It has various compartments (who knew you would need so much stuff for such a small human when on the go) to easily and quickly find what you need. It also includes a little clutch for the changing pad, diapers, wipes so you can just grab that for a short walk, etc. Lastly, it has straps that allows you to safely hang from your stroller. 4moms® mamaRoo® Baby Swing Price: $249.99 Why I Love It: Because it gives my arms a break!! Lucas loves to be moving so this has been our saving grace when he needs to nap for more than 10 minutes or I […]

Beach/Summer Essentials at Target

We love nothing more  than a good beach trip and summer is fast approaching. We thought we would round up these beach essentials we got at Target, that worked perfectly on my trip to Florida. The Tote was probably the biggest hit since it is so large, also used it as my carry on so could fit the needed toys, snacks etc. to get a 18 mo. thru the flight. And A New Day has a lot of super super cute tote options for the summer, look at this one.… I think I need it! A lot of my other purchases were from the Bullseye Playground so take a peek at your next visit to your Target store. And my cover up is so affordable and makes me so happy with the yellow tassels and pineapple print!   And this little towel poncho was the perfect cover-up for Caroline. Not to mention all the swimsuits 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 […]
