Wednesday Wishlist

It was bound to happen. C caught his very first cold from school (on his 2nd day) so he was home on Monday. This also meant that there was very little sleeping at the N. house. Having a sick child is the worst. Boogers, tears, forcing medicine down a screaming banshee baby’s throat is nothing compared to the thrashing and crying every 2 hours. Thankfully, we’ve powered through to Wednesday on waves of coffee fueled endorphins and little man is feeling better – clingy, but better.

In between zoning out and trying to stay awake at work, I did a little window shopping 😉

Currently lusting over:

alice + oliva drixa pumps – hot!
parker finn dress – perfect date night dress
rag and bone harrow booties – love the added detailing from their popular classic newbury boots
danielle nicole shoulder bag – loving this color for fall


To Wear or Not to Wear


Me: “What do you think of these shorts? Are they too pajama-y?”

Hubs after raising one eyebrow and looking me up and down (never a good sign): “Uhh, are you wearing them outside?”

Me: “YES. They have pockets! See?”

Hubs: “Can you make me some lunch?”

Me: “C’mon! Return or keep?”

Hubs: “Definitely return”

Me: “Whatever, I’m keeping them.”

Hubs” “WHY do you even ask when you already knew you were going to keep them?!”

These are cute, no?  They have pockets! AND elastic. a win/win on this mama’s hips!

Friends & Family Shopping

I have a confession. I am a shopaholic. I don’t splurge on a lot of designer duds, I can’t pull the trigger on that but I can go nuts at Target w/o a blink of an eye and not think twice. Why, yes, now that I think about it, I do need to pick up a lamp, this picture frame, and colander while I’m here getting toilet paper.

I also window shop at least twice a week, usually before bed, aimlessly putting things in shopping carts all over the web. Then I get angry at myself for not going to bed sooner and wasting precious sleep time and abandon all together. Then I lay there for at least 20 minutes wondering if I should just buy it since I spent 30 minutes prior deciding what size and color to get. Oh, the vicious cycle.

Since we’re going on vacation soon, I’ve been using that as an excuse to get a little crazy with the spending, but this weekend is also Spring’s Friends and Family sales! 20-30% off. I mean, that’s the best time to stock up on essentials and basics M’IRITE???

  • Sephora – 15% off Beauty Insider Members. Use code CHIC. Stocking up on these:
  1. Clarisonic Cleansing Brushes – my 2x daily cleaning ritual
  2. Benefit Porefessional Primer – best primer to keep my makeup from sliding off my greasy face!
  3. Lotus Eye Gel – love this eye cream that keeps me looking less like the walking dead
  4. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense – never been a fan of Clinique until I used this product. My face is dryer than the Sahara during the winter and this kept me ultra moisturized.
  • Rebecca Minkoff – 30%; Use code Friends30
  • JCrew – 25% Swim; Use code SUNNYDAYS
  • Kate Spade – 25%; Use code S13FFUS
  • Gap – 30%; Use code 4FRIENDS13


The countdown begins for our first family vacay to ARUBA in just 15 days! I’m starting to overcome the dread I normally feel when I think about Caden on a plane for 4 hours and actually feeling a bit excited! I know I have a tendency to be a majorly impatient asshole with my hubs – and I admit it – kinda uptight on trips just because I’m not one to do well with changes. Throw a crazy, apple juiced up toddler into the equation, and we might have situation. HOWEVER, I am DETERMINED to make this trip memorable and Shutterfly album worthy and not drink myself into mommy obliteration to take the edge off. (Husband is not a drinker, so I could if I wanted 🙂 )

So of course, I have been shopping like a mad woman and using every possible excuse to go run to Target because we “need” something for Aruba. Since I doubt we will be basking on the beach and relaxing w/ a mai tai in hand w/ my little man running around, I’ve scouring the internet and malls for a swimsuit that is mommy friendly so I won’t have to suck in my left over baby weight 24/7 or run the risk of indecently exposing myself.

With all the drama and sickness boggin us down lately, I am uber excited for the change of scenery for our little fam.
