Mother’s Day is only a few days away — and now that I’m a mom myself, I have a whole new respect for this special day. I know now everything a mom goes through, and how much she selflessly gives to her kids and her family. So, I’m definitely looking forward to a day to spend with my new little family of four. Hoping to have a [few] mimosas, enjoy a stack of waffles, and soak up the love. We usually will spend the day with my family too and have a whole mom celebration morning [because lord knows by the afternoon we all need a nap]. This year I’m doing something fun too, I put together a little Mom’s Day Dinner get together with my sweet friends who are mommies too. I was going to host a brunch at my house, but then decided I wanted a break from the kitchen, so we’re all getting together, no kids, on Friday night to just have a few hours of feeling like adults again.

If you’re looking for some last minute mom ideas here’s a few things that I’ve been obsessing over and have on my own mommy-wants-it list.

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Recipe Box // Mama Bear Shirt // Spring Candle
Strawberry Lip Balm
Shipwreck Bar Utensils  // Children’s Drawing Necklace

And don’t forget that mom’s gifts don’t always have to be bought. Here’s a few other ideas of things that mom would LOVE [maybe better than any actual gift] on Mother’s Day.
1. No yogurt flung in the carpet, no tantrums, no watching mommy pee, one glass of wine and a brownie
2. One hour alone with the remote to not hear the sound of Mickey Mouse’s voice
3. Not having to wipe up the foot/leg/mess of the toddler falling in to the toilet
4. A hair appointment…or just 10 minutes to actually curl my own hair and do something other than a messy bun.
5. Make that 2 glasses of wine and a hot fudge brownie sundae

I’ve started a new [good] habit! When I’m up nursing Holly at night, I’ve gotten in to the routine of reading on my Nook. I had started out surfing on my phone, looking through Pinterest, watching YouTube videos, and as a result, stimulating my brain and then having a hard time going back to bed. […]

Holly: 8 Weeks Old

April 30, 2016

Yup, 8 weeks. I feel like life is in flash forward mode and not slowing down. This week was a very sentimental week for me. Holly is now sleeping at night in her own room. While that’s incredible and amazing and I’m getting a lot better sleep, it also made me super sad. With Logan […]

April 27, 2016

Here we go again. With having a baby, comes losing the baby weight. Always a fun process — the adding the weight can be way funner than losing the weight. A few months after having Logan I had found AdvoCare and started my first ever 24 Day Challenge [it was a modified nursing challenge] and […]

Tasty Dinners

April 26, 2016

I’m that kind of person who rarely makes the same dinner twice. I love it. My husband hates it. But seriously, thanks to Pinterest I have a hard time just sticking to the same ole meals. I love to try new things and just have a variety of different foods. Some times too much variety…my […]

Holly: 7 Weeks Old

April 24, 2016

We’re gonna change Holly’s nickname from Missy Poo to Miss Smiley Face. This girl just doesn’t stop smiling [if she’s awake that is]. If you’re in a bad mood, just hold this little bug and let her flash that BIIIG gummy smile at you, and boom, bad mood instantly gone. She’s also got this little […]

White Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio Overnight Oats

April 21, 2016

Let’s talk about mornings, and how now with two kids, mornings are absolutely crazy. I try to wake up before everyone to either workout or just get some things done around the house before the madness kicks in. But, the last few mornings I’ve been more tired than usual. The middle of the night feedings […]
