On My Mind | No. 01
Just a list of random things… and everything on my mind!
Hi! I just love a good stream of consciousness post… and this is just that! Sometimes it feels good to write it all down and tell you everything I’m thinking in this *very* moment. So here’s the first edition with many more to come!
Some very random thoughts about all the things…
I picked up this scented honeysuckle laundry detergent on accident and I am obsessed with it. Smells like heaven and it just as good (if not better) than the fancy kind! Also, I feel like I have to add that I’m VERY sensitive to scents and this one doesn’t give me a headache. Five stars.
I’m living in these hair clips. It’s so much easier on my hair than a regular hair tie and I just love how simple it is. I have one in my bag, in my hair, or clipped on to my person at all times.
Guys… do I need a Costco membership? I feel like it’s needed to fully complete “the new mom starter pack”! Any maybe it will help me meal plan for these… but seriously, sell me in the comments, please!
I wear these short overalls just about twice a week—they are so comfortable and sporty! I have them in the long version too, and wore them all throughout my pregnancy (see here!). For this pair, I ordered them in a medium and are still very roomy, but in the best way. Probably my favorite thing in my closet currently… well, my second favorite! This dress is truly a 10/10. (I wear a small.)
My girlfriends are throwing a tea party on Saturday just for fun and I am SO excited. (You know how much I love my tea cups and vintage china collection!) I’ve been loving getting out and about again, plus I have this floral dress that is so ready to be worn!
Speaking of, getting out with a baby is so much fun. I was worried before I had Laurens that I wouldn’t be able to go-go-go like I used to, and if anything I think getting out is even better now. (Like our big first family vacation… we really did it!) Do I have more stuff with me? TOTALLY. Does it take more planning? ABSOLUTELY. Do I typically end up very sweaty in this Florida heat? 100%. But it’s the greatest! I love toting my little buddy around town, and he loves to be out as much as I do! We go to coffee shops, run errands, and visit friends. My car, diaper bag, and stroller have become my home away from home and we make it work.
My mom has been coming to help me on Mondays and it’s the best ever… I’m so grateful! I’ll never take for granted how lucky I am to have her close by. Truly such a gift!
I really need to get a manicure/pedicure, and this is going sound ridiculous, but I’m SO picky when it comes to my nails! (As evidence here, all my favorites!) I usually head straight home and redo them after the salon, which totally defeats the purpose. I’m not even a gel or dip kind of gal, I just want a really good classic manicure. HELP! Do you know of someone in town?
Ryan and I are going to see Top Gun Maverick (I’m so excited!) on Saturday night and I’m already thinking about the GIANT tub of popcorn I will be having. (And here’s my favorite homemade popcorn recipe!) I might even bring my fave df treats with me, too.
I ordered the cult favorite denim shorts yesterday, and I’ll keep you updated! Everyone RAVES about them, so fingers crossed they live up to expectations!
Last but not least, I’ve been trying to wake up before Laurens as much as possible during the week, and when I do it really helps set the tone for my entire day… but it’s a wild card! (Remember my pre-baby morning routine?) So on Monday, I had an entire hour to myself, but this morning not so much! There has to be so much grace in everything these days, and I’m learning to lean in! But no matter what the start of my day looks like, this *always* helps!
Okay, that’s all I have for you for now… I kind of loves these type of posts, do you?! You know I’m always open to hearing from you and what you’d like to see/hear/read from me, so be in touch!
