Monday Morning Musings | No. 245

Movies, soup, tea, and a little vitamin D…

I’m currently typing this post out cuddled up under the covers with a hot cup of chamomile tea while the dryer finishes up its final load of the day. I mentioned in my Saturday newsletter (see here!) that all three of us came down with a fairly intense spring cold, and woof, this weekend we were a mess! BUT there is light at the end of the tunnel! It’s never fun when someone in the house is sick, but when it’s the entire house, it’s downright comical. At times Ryan and I would just look at each other and just laugh as we were both carting around a personal box of tissues.

I would have obviously preferred if we were all feeling 100% and didn’t have to cancel all the fun plans we had, but truthfully it was super sweet weekend. We ate homemade chicken noodle soup that my mom dropped off and watched Father of the Bride 1 and 2. We took turns rocking the baby back to sleep *at all hours* of the night, sang countless made-up songs, and took a handful of drives nowhere since the carseat is always such a hit! A truly funny weekend and one I hope not to forget, but I’m glad is finally over!

Although!! We did get a little wind in our sails on Saturday afternoon for a bit and thought maybe a little vitamin D would help plus, the bike seat we had ordered came in and to be honest, we were dying to see Laurens in a tiny baby helmet! And oh my gosh, it was a hit! He loved his little ride just around the neighborhood and his smile was HUGE the entire time. Now that we are all on the up and up, I can’t wait to go on nightly rides when Ryan gets home from work. Seriously so fun and unbelievably adorable.

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our weekend, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few new obsessions…


The Best Bike Seat

We’ve been talking about getting a bike seat since before Laurens was born so we’d done a ton of research and finally landed on this seat from Thule. Then we saw a mom with her 18-month-old at East End Market with the same seat, and we asked her allllll the questions. She confirmed what we were thinking, it was the best! We went home and ordered it that night. And gosh, I’m glad we did. HOW CUTE IS THIS?!

(Safety first! This is the helmet we ordered, it was one of the only ones that fit his little head snug.)

Loving Yellow Everything

I already ordered this, I can’t with the yellow stripes these days. It’s all I want to wear! So happy. I also rounded up a handful of my other favorite striped shirts here!

Wooden Eggs For Easter

I found these wooden eggs on Etsy over the weekend and I am so excited about them. I hope to use the each year in Laurens’ Easter basket, so I wanted something that would stand test of time! Aren’t they fun?! This year they will probably just stay empty… he’ll get a kick out of just clapping them together if we are being honest. And I can’t wait!

Wear Everywhere!

I just got this striped tennis dress in from Addison Bay, and y’all it’s SO cute. Like unbelievably cute. I have it in a size small, but might swap it for a medium for the length, but either way I’m obsessed! Whether you’re on the courts, on a walk, or off to the grocery store… it’s actual perfection!

The Sweetest Blouse

Another fun find! This adorable blouse is so cute. I am so into everything Pink City Prints is doing, but this blouse is a total home run. I ordered it in a size small and I’m so into the fit. Seriously such a great find. LOVE love love!
