[so. much. attitude.]

While in Target over the weekend, I noticed this Sunn Lab swimsuit on the sale rack and was immediately drawn to it because it was gingham. It found its way into my cart and when I tried it on at home later I was pleasantly surprised. So excited to wear this one if the weather ever decides to cooperate. (Note: Save 25% on women’s suits from Target with code SWIM. Offer expires 4/21 at 11:59pm PT.)

I may be behind on this, but the reboot of Queer Eye is, in Jonathan’s words, “giving me life.” Put this on your Netflix binge list for the weekend.

I’ve never been much of a gamer except for my Nintendo power pad days, but over spring break my little sister introduced me to Wordscapes and I’m hooked.

TTD faves: Cheerily

A week ago I was deep in the depths of a Facebook group when a photo came across my screen of the cutest little babe in a sweatshirt that said ‘Momma’s Mini’ and I had to know where it was from. With a little sleuthing, I found that it was a custom design from a site called Cheerily.

Lorna Diwa, creator of Cheerily, wanted to help people celebrate the parents and babies in their lives. With no kids herself, but friends that do, she often found herself devoting a lot of energy towards finding thoughtful gifts for new parents and babies. Existing gifting sites lacked selection, so she eventually began making the gifts herself or curating gift bundles for her friends.

I placed my order immediately, and am so happy with how it turned out. I think Everett is too. That is, until he can learn how to read.
And can we talk about how perfect the packaging is?! Such a great idea for gifting!
I’m so excited to share that Cheerily is offering a discount code to all of my readers! You can enter code TTD15 at checkout to take 15% off your order. The code can only be used once per person and it expires on May 31, 2018. Happy shopping friends!

[he’s always on the move]

After Marcus and I made it through a self-imposed “frugal March” I was feeling the need for a little shopping this week and J.Crew was having quite the sale. I snagged this striped tee because out of all the stripes in my closet, I don’t have a short sleeved version. (Also added to card: gingham bow tie, camo shorts and cerise tie top)

Everett failed two eye screenings recently and is going to the eye doctor today for the first time. Neither Marcus nor I have glasses, so we aren’t quite sure what to expect, but dang he is going to look so stinkin’ cute in specs. I’ve already been doing a little research and I love some of the pairs from Jonas Paul Eyewear. Stay tuned…

I will forever be Sandlot obsessed, so when I saw this spot on The Today Show I may have freaked out.

TTD faves: Hunter x Target

I was already a fan of the Hunter brand before they announced joining up with Target earlier this year. The boys live in their wellie boots (the first classic in red is my personal fave) and I even have an old blue+yellow lace-up pair for myself that I found discounted at Marshall’s.

Like most Target collabs, I tend to like seeing items in person before purchasing, and I think that will be the same for this one as well.

So in anticipation for the Hunter for Target collaboration to hits stores this weekend, I thought I would round-up what is on my personal wishlist.

TTD faves: Cali girl

It’s been a month since we left for our SoCal vacay (Catch up here: Disneyland + parts one // two // three) and I am still trying to incorporate that cool Cali girl vibe into my everyday attire.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite ways to recreate that laid back style even if the ocean is thousands of miles away and sunshine and warm weather is hard to come by these days.

[Time flies: Ev had his four year check-up this week]

I am getting pretty desperate for warmer temps and when I spotted these darling personalized hooded towel cover ups I thought they would be the perfect thing to purchase in hopes of seeing that thermometer rise.

You know I love me some plaid, so when my mom spotted this gingham dress at Target she knew it had to be mine. I think it is perfect for baby/wedding showers, work and more!

I’ve been liking chardonnays this spring, Butter being my lower end go-to. You can find me sipping out of this insulated mug during the evenings because I get sidetracked too often and can never keep my wine chilled without it.

Download: Easter 2018

Easter weekend has come and gone and this bunny could use a break. This week has been one of those that I feel like I’m scraping by – barely making it through each day. My balance between work and home life is way off kilter and I’m hoping to just make it through.

Do you ever feel like that? Well, I’m here to tell you to hang in there! And to flood you with some sweet Easter photos from the past weekend.
