[Fitzie celebrated his 100th day of preschool this week]
This week has been awfully cold here in the midwest and I don’t know about you, but I could definitely use a dose of SPRING. And what better way to do that than to head to the Des Moines Home + Garden Show that kicks off next week! Even better, I have four tickets to giveaway. Leave a comment on this post (or comment on my Instagram post) to be entered. I’ll draw a winner on Monday, February 4.
In need of a cute Galentine idea? My sister sent over a link to these Valentine cozy socks this week and I think they would be perfect paired with a nail polish to gift to your friends.
A couple of weeks ago I posted about a few Target swimsuits that I ordered. Well, I’m back to tell you that I loved one of them and can’t wait for warmer weather to be here so I can wear it. Definitely flattering of my mom bod!
[we are confused about the weather over here]
With a sick kid + snow days combined, I feel like I’ve been cooped up in my house for far too long. I am hoping to get out this weekend and finally check out Teddy Maroon’s here in Des Moines. What should I have for brunch? Other than a mimosa, obviously.
Speaking of cooped up, the kids were climbing the walls earlier this weekend when I came across an Instagram story series from Amy Lou Hawthorne of The Ever Co. She was sharing all sorts of cool ideas for indoor play when the weather isn’t cooperating. After viewing I immediately added kinetic sand and water beads to my Amazon cart.
For some reason after the holidays I start to crave podcasts during my commute to/from work. This year is no exception and I’ve been loving these two: Dirty John and Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert.
It’s hard to believe we are already over half way through the month of January. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner now, and I’m seeing heart-laden goodies everywhere these days.
So now is as good as time as any to round up a few of my favorites for the littles so that they can spread the love.

[we finally got snow]
Heading into a long weekend and looking for something to do here in Iowa? Be sure to check out the Science Center of Iowa on Monday for their annual free day.
On a recent trip to Target I noticed they already had their swimwear out in full force! I know, I know, it’s hard to get excited when there is snow on the ground. While I was casually browsing I noticed that they had a new line, Kona Sol, and it looked amazing in person. Fast-forward to later that night at home when proceeded to order two black suits (this and this) online!
With an impending winter storm hitting near us this weekend, I’m looking forward to spending some time at home with a roaring fire and a good bottle (or two) of wine. Maybe I’ll even get some Marie Kondo-esqe organizing done?
