Friday Favorites

Oh wow... I have no idea how it's been almost 2 weeks since I've blogged. It certainly wasn't intentional, but to be honest, having two kids at home with me all day is hard. Having two kids with me at cheer camp last week was even harder. Hosting a double birthday party after being away for 3 days was hard too. #excuses In short, life has been hectic. But it's been the best kind of hectic, filled with my loved ones & my passions - so no complaints here! I will be posting about the girls' party & all that we've been up to next week, but today I wanted to pop in & share my favorites from the #NSale - because I've definitely found time to shop that! 



Since I'm a cardholder (I have the debit one that comes right out of our normal bank account & highly recommend it!) - I have already made 3 orders from the sale. The first arrived on Tuesday, and the others are set to arrive tomorrow! 

So first of all, I have to agree with everyone that the shoes in this sale are ah-mazing! I have been lusting over a new pair of Nikes for myself, but bought a pair for Ella instead. I think they'll be perfect for our trip to Disney & then they can be her back to school shoes too! 

I'm also LOVING these scalloped Uggs. Ella lives in Uggs all winter long - #hellonewyork - and this is a price that I can actually afford them at. 
My favorite headbands for Livy are included in the sale as well! They are adorable, soft, stretchy, and don't leave marks on her head! I picked up three new ones for her! 

not Livy... this is the pic from the Nordstrom website

Another thing I've been crazy over in the sale is the activewear. I am a huge fan of Zella apparel, so I ordered a new pair of Live In Leggings & this cute top! I plan to wear the top at Disney since it's so lightweight & currently the feels like temp in Orlando is 104. #godhelpme



And I may or may not have this item sitting in my cart. I'm waiting to see how much I end up spending in Disney before I pull the trigger. I figure if I can still afford it & it's still available - it'll be fate!

Ok friends, Ella is gone for the day with her Grammy Nancy, so Olivia & I are going to start the first stages of packing! Wish us luck & have a great weekend!

Weekend Recap

This Saturday we attended my favorite festival of the year - The Corn Hill Arts Festival. I normally go each year with my mom & sister, but this year my mom couldn't make it up from Virginia, so I went with my sister, my kids, and our husbands instead. 

Our first stop of the day was the Duke's Donuts truck! These apple cider frycakes are my favorite and they were still warm when we go to eat them! Ella was a little upset that they didn't have frosting or sprinkles on them, but she came around. 


Every year we see the Fairy House Tour, but normally skip it. This year Ella was all about it though! 

I was really impressed with the fairy houses too. They were all incredibly intricate & you could tell that people had spent A LOT of time on them. People got to vote for their favorite & this is the one that I picked!


And this is the one that Ella voted for!


Eric got in on the wine tasting, while I ate up some meatballs from The Meatball Truck! 


Ella did a little birthday shopping & her Aunt Britt bought her a new Belle necklace! 


And then the crazy dog lady struck again... buying this sign for her backyard. 


After the festival, we took a stroll along the river & enjoyed the beautiful day. Then headed to one of my favorite restaurants - The Gate House - for a late lunch/early dinner. 


On Sunday, we  woke up to cooler temps & a little rain, so we headed out to the grocery store to get our errands taken care of. The big surprise was that our normal truck carts had been upgraded to tractor carts! The girls were really excited about it. We were hoping they'd be easier to drive, but nope, just as big of a pain as normal. 


We came home took naps & then the weather was SO MUCH NICER! We played in our water table (hence why Olivia is topless), took two walks, and did some chalking. 

We finished off the night with fajitas on the grill & some US Gymnastics! Now this week, we're headed to spend a week at cheer camp. We'll be in the gym all day, getting ready for the season. Then the coaches are headed to Baltimore for the weekend

On the Move with Huggies Little Movers & a Giveaway for You!

The big question around our house these days is when will Olivia start walking? She's a pro crawler, an excellent creeper, and even pretty good at standing on her wobbly little legs. But actually walking - we're waiting for the big moment. And in the meantime, I'm preparing for it. We've removed the coffee table from the living room so she can't knock her head on it, we have the baby gates up on both sets of stairs, and we made the switch to Huggies Little Movers, because that's exactly what she is these days!


Huggies Little Movers have a stretchy SnugFit Waistband to help Livy's diaper stay in place & prevent anything from getting out. (A feature I value since Livy mainly plays on our carpets!) 


The unique contoured shape provides a comfortable fit and stays in place as she plays her little heart out. They also feature Leak Lock protection, a DryTouch liner, and double grip strips - all part of the new Huggies Brand Moving Baby System




Another thing I love about Huggies Little Movers is that they're available at my local Sam's Club! And if you purchase between now & July 17th, you'll save $3.00 instantly at check out. If you aren't already a Sam's Club member, you can sign up here! I find my membership to be SO handy. We buy everything from diapers & wipes to watermelon & gas. They have it all & at great prices! 


Save $3 on your next Huggies Little Mover purchase

One last thing... Huggies & Sam's Club have teamed up to offer you a $500 gift card to Sam's Club! Use it for whatever you like & all you need to do to enter is submit a photo of your Little Mover by clicking here
