My Favorite Things at Trader Joe’s

Hey friends! Hard to believe it’s already Thursday! With R off, this week has been zooming by. We went to the pool for the first time on Tuesday, the zoo yesterday, and the Science Museum this morning. I’ll definitely share more thoughts on those outings later (especially the pool with two little kiddos), but today I wanted to pop in and share my 10 favorite things at Trader Joe’s. I know it’s a little random, but I went on Tuesday, and it is and has been for a while, my favorite grocery…

Happy Memorial Day!(& Playground Observations)

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope your holiday weekends have been full of sun and hot dogs and fun. We’ve been having a decidedly low key weekend. R has been working, and we literally did not leave the house Saturday or Sunday. Mostly, because as I’ve mentioned on here before, I am a big old chicken when it comes to solo outings with both kiddos. And I become even more of a chicken when it’s a holiday weekend, and I know everywhere we could go would be crazy crowded. So instead we’ve…

Saturday Six.

So, this was supposed to be a “Friday Five” post that I intended to write last night after the kiddos went to bed, but, Bobby woke up 45 minutes after he went down and proceeded to party for THREE HOURS. So obviously, no writing occurred. The good news is because of my insistence on alliteration in blog post titles, I get to share SIX things on my mind instead of a measly five 🙂 1.Speaking of sleep: After last night’s rough patch (and 2 previous nights of Bobby waking up after a solid couple of weeks…

Yumble Kids: Meal Delivery Review + Discount Code

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. However, I was sent the product to facilitate a review. As with every review you’ll find on this blog, all thoughts and opinions are honest, unbiased, and completely my own. Like any parent of a toddler, I’ve developed some pretty major anticipatory dread associated with dinner time. Ryland went from a 1-year-old who would eat pretty much everything to a 2-year-old whose only consistent food preferences are yogurt, cheese, and fruit pouches. I’m not a big fan of meal planning to begin with…

End-of-the-Year Teacher Gift Ideas!

Well, friends, it’s fast approaching the end of the school year. This was Ryland’s first “school” year (if one, 3-hour block a week can really count as school 😉 ), and I am SO happy that we enrolled her last fall. She was only 18 months when we started, and I worried it might be too young, but after some initial tearful drop-offs, she has absolutely fallen in love with the whole school thing. I already posted this on Instagram, but I have to share her “first day” and “last day…

Weekending

After two weekends in a row spent recuperating from a nasty sinus infection, I was actually able to enjoy this weekend, and enjoy it we did! On Saturday morning, Bobby was kind enough to be my 5:30 am alarm and we both lost our collective cools over the Royal Wedding. I know a lot of people think it’s silly or stupid and mock those who got really into it. But I don’t care. There is not a cynical bone in my body when it comes to this wedding. I got really into it. I was…
