Random Monday Thoughts

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great weekend.  I had one of the best I've had in a while -- nothing special, in particular, but I think that's what made it so good.  We had no real plans so we just enjoyed time drinking coffee in bed, watching Sam "get ready" to crawl, visiting with relatives and friends, shopping, hiking, and eating lots of delicious food.  Did I mention it was also over 70 degrees both days?  Honestly, it was one of those weekends Jeff and I were fantasizing about this time last year.  Good stuff.

Anyways, just some random things today...

- First, would you please look at this little stud?  He went on his first hike yesterday.  His dad was a champ and carried all 20+ pounds of him up the side of a mountain.  Yes, those are FLAMES on his sunglasses.  Yes, I realize that allowing him to wear sunglasses with flames and a camo hat completely goes against everything I said in this post --- but they were a gift, and he can't be a prep all the time.  WhatcanIsay? :)

- My mom and I went to the mall on Saturday for a little bit and I thought I should probably pass this along...  There are some GREAT deals at Old Navy right now on all of the bright color-blocking trends out there right now.  I bought a great dress for a wedding coming up in May.  It is hot pink and orange, and I am OBSESSED with it.  (Unfortunately, it isn't online so... You'll have to wait to see photos from the wedding.)  They also have skinny jeans in LOTS of fun colors on sale right now for $25.00.  I'm not usually a fan of Old Navy, but they got it right this season.  If you are looking to update your wardrobe a little without breaking the bank, you might just be in luck!  (And, um, no... Old Navy is NOT paying me to say this.  Obvious, but it must be said.)
A few of my favorites
- I'm already preparing for The Bachelor finale tonight.  (And by preparing, I mean I saved all my laundry to wash/dry/fold/and put-away from 8 - 10 tonight.) I'm rooting for Lindzi; but, I honestly don't like Ben that much so... I'm just watching for the gowns and drama.  Are you watching?  How do you feel about Emily being the next Bachelorette?  I think she is beautiful and I liked her a lot in Jake's season; but, I'll be honest, I kind-of feel like she already had her chance and flaked out.  Am I alone here?  I mean, of course I'll still watch, but she's got some convincing to do.

- Jeff and I are going to see Elton John in concert on Thursday night.  I'm pretty darn excited.  Have any of you ever seen him live?

- And, um, there will be no "12 in 12" update today; basically because I have absolutely NOTHING to report.  I've been a bum the last 300 30 days so... Here's to the next go around!

Coming up this week:
Sam's EIGHT MONTH update,
Even more Midweek Confessions.
My Baby Registry Checklist.
and more.

Have a good one!

  3. Hey girl! What kind of "baby backpack" did you guys get? David is wanting to get one for hiking - especially since we have a couple of trips to the mountains coming up this spring. We've decided that the Baby Bjorn is not good enough for a REAL hike, ;-) so we've started researching some other things.

  4. He's getting close to crawling?? So funny that he is "preparing" to. I laughed out loud. And those shades and hat make him look so old so I can see why you like to keep him looking like the baby he is. Adorable though!

    Thanks for the Old Navy tip. Any children clothes' sales?

  8. I'm OBSESSED with that picture of Sam. I know I already commented on it when you instagrammed it, but I just can't resist commenting on it again. Can I make it my computer background??
