I am a summer and warm weather kind of girl so living in the northeast, I get bummed once the weather starts turning chilly.  Clearly the only way to cheer myself up is by purchasing a new fall wardrobe!  I've posted a lot of what I have purchased from Nordstrom, Amazon and Target in my Facebook group (and in my "Shop my Closet" blog post!) but I also decided to schedule a "pick me up" Stitch Fix! Make sure to read to the end of this post because there is a MEGA Giveaway for you all!!!!!

Shop my Closet- Fall 2017

It's been a busy month on my Facebook page- lots of deals, hot holiday toys and fashion finds!  I have been loving the affordable clothes I've been finding at Nordstrom, Amazon and more so I figured I should probably put them all in one place!

Disclaimer: I haaaaaaate taking selfies but I know I like seeing the fit of things on an actual person so I do it for you all :)  Links to buy will be with each picture.

Top-Nordstrom's Pleione Faux Wrap Blouse.  Reviews say size up but I am wearing my normal size XS.  Jeans- Lucky Brand Sofia Skinny Jeans from Amazon- fits TTS.

What's in my Emergency Preparedness Kit?!

With the recent natural disasters and the fact that during 2 previous hurricanes, my home in the northeast lost power for a week at a time, I realized that aside from a couple candles, I was not prepared for a power outage let alone something major.  I am a worrier, so I decided to put together a bin for "in case of emergency" that I hopefully will never use.  I went off of FEMA's recommendations and some of them seemed a bit extreme but better safe than sorry, right?


I thought this might be helpful to share with others so here is what I have in my kit so far:

In the spirit of Back to School, I've been trying to brainstorm what products moms are looking for this time of year.  2 years in a row now, I have purchased Mabel's Labels for my kids so I reached out to them to see if they would be interested in sponsoring a giveaway and/or doing an exclusive deal for you all!  They are AWESOME and not only said yes but also sent me a couple things to try out and show you off on my blog!

Top Toys for Active Kids

It always amazes me how two kids who are seemingly raised the same can have such different personalities!  Ryan, who is 4, has always been content to do a puzzle, color, and read books for what seems like forever.  Meanwhile, Ava, who is 2, is my wild woman!  She walked at 10 months and has not slowed down since!  It has been challenging for me as a mom to find things that get her energy out, keep her attention, yet (somewhat) keep her contained!

This Stitch Fix review is LONG overdue!  This will be the 9th fix I've blogged but this is actually the 19th fix I've received!  Eek!  As you know from my moving post, we moved recently and our new house is insanely dark.  I still haven't figured out a spot and time where the lightning is decent so you have to excuse my boring, driver's license-esque pictures!

Whew- I haven't posted here in FOR-EVER and it is for good reason- we moved!!!  The whole process of buying/selling was a whirlwind -we weren't even looking to move but our realtor called us up with a home that was exactly what we had mentioned we were eventually looking for in our "forever" home.  That started a chain event of craziness and today we are happily hanging out in said "forever home."

My Breastfeeding Must Haves

One of the toughest things I have done in my kids' first year of life was breastfeed.  Confession: I had a total love-hate relationship with nursing.  While I enjoyed the cuddles and bonding time, I felt like it was time consuming and as a self proclaimed introvert, by the end of the day, I just wanted my own personal space.  I say this to point out that it is OK if you don't have a magical feeling toward nursing...I never did...but you can still do it if you want!  Thankfully, I had supportive friends and a husband who encouraged me to push through the pain and frustration and it got MUCH easier over time.  I am proud to say I breastfed Ryan for 11 months and Ava for a year. 

I figured it might be helpful to list some of my "must have" suggestions for nursing mamas.  I am by no means a breastfeeding expert, just a mom who breastfed, but here are the products that helped get me through:

Strawberry Protein Smoothie Recipe

Happy New year! I suppose this is the time of year where I trade posting cookie recipes for health food.  Womp, womp.  New Year's resolutions are in full force with me and I even joined a diet bet with some friends (never heard of diet bet?  It is an app where you and a group can do a challenge to win money if you reach a weight loss goal.  Winners split the pot. I am just trying to not lose money!).  I signed up for Weight Watchers and hope to go full force and hopefully lose the 7-8 lbs of baby weight that never went away (19 months later).
