May Giveaway

Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all of you mamas out there! My Mother’s Day was spent wrangling a certain little boy who was both tired and restless for the majority of the day. My husband was kind enough to take Jack with him on some morning business so that I would be able to shower and get ready without simultaneously entertaining a baby. The plan backfired however, as the last thing Jack wanted to do after a two hour errand run with Daddy was sit in a highchair at brunch (or a lap or carrier for that matter). Needless to say, brunch was fast and furious.

My husband and I also completed some projects around the house (he did the work and I provided quality control) on Sunday, and our little man enjoyed showing off for the grandparents… Jack is now pulling up and taking steps with the help of his his little tikes Push and Ride Racer, which has pushed him over the edge into to full-blown maniac territory.

A month or so ago, I wrote a blog post about my favorite necessities for an older baby. One of those items was an adorable diaper clutch by Caught Ya Lookin’.

Spring Fever

Things are looking up in the A-family household. I’m getting closer to my pre-baby weight (not counting Monday mornings, of course- Hello weekend fooder*), Jack is paid-off at long last, and it’s the first official day of spring! Ice days are a thing of the past, and it’s time to leave the drab colors of winter behind.

Motivated by the changing season, I spent at least an hour last night perusing the internet- more specifically JCrew and Carters- for spring fashion inspiration, longing to drop a significant chunk of change on new clothes for both Jack and myself. Thankfully, my computer ran out of juice before I had the chance to purchase anything, as pay day is four lonnnng days away, and my funds are already whittled down to almost nil. I have online shopping baskets filled to the brim with outfits that I will probably never buy. Sigh.

I don’t know why I spend more money than is absolutely necessary on Jack’s wardrobe. The kid is eight-months old. He spends his day in a house with other children who have no concept of “cute”. On a good day, he ends up with spaghetti sauce all over his shirt (side note- He is finally eating solids. Hallelujah!). On a bad day, well, use your imagination. Despite the fact that J won’t even be able to wear these clothes in a few months, I simply cannot help myself. When I finally pick him up after an exhausting day at work, seeing my happy little nugget in an outfit that I love makes my day. And can you really put a price on that? I think not.

While browsing online last night, I made a visit to zulilly.com and stumbled upon a charming line of diaper bags and accessories. The brand is called Caught Ya Lookin’, and the bags will be on sale for two more days. This amazing find then inspired me to search for other diaper bags, not that I need another one or have anything better to do with my time… At this point, there’s not much I wouldn’t do to avoid the mound of papers I meant to grade over Spring Break. Whoops.

These are my favorite diaper bags right now. Clearly, I am a sucker for all things preppy, striped, nautical, and/or bright. I actually own the first Pottery Barn Kids diaper bag, but in a different color scheme (and sporting a lovely red wine stain- go figure). Click the bags for purchasing information. Happy Spring!

*fooder- an eating frenzy of sorts
