{Weekly Wins}: May the 4th Be With You

Happy happy Friday, lovies! Sorry for the cheesy title, I just couldn't resist!
This week flew by for me, and I hope that it did for you too!
It also had a ton of wins, so let's recap:

~Ella's first birthday party was a total success, and all of your sweet comments and birthday wishes were amazing!
~Getting cards and gifts in the mail from friends for our girl's birthday--love snail mail!

~Weather that allowed us to play in the water table every night after dinner. Some of those nights wine was enjoyed by the adult kids #extrawin
~done with thank you cards for gifts from Ella's birthday!

~a 90 minute massage on Sunday afternoon last weekend, once we got back home from all of the birthday festivities. Heavenly!
Obviously this was taken in the aftermath of the amazing massage haha
~This sweet photo of Ella and one of her best buddies at daycare on Wednesday. The smiles get me! And also, babies in sunhats!
~making plans with MG's coworker to watch Cooper during our beach vacay this summer (one less thing to worry about in the meantime!) Cooper is going to love all of the attention from the family, including the 13 year old and the 5 year old. He may not want to come home!

~Sunless tanner--in these early days of dresses and shorts, and also trying to protect my skin from the sun, my two sunless tanner options have given me a great base and a nice glow.
I highly recommend Rodan+Fields Sunless tanner (NOT sponsored, I just seriously love it that much), and Jergens Natural Glow Wet Moisturizer which my nieces actually introduced me to last year. Nice glow, protected skin...win-win!
On that note, I'll leave you with that GLOWING recommendation (get it???? :) #cornymomjoke

Hoping your weekend is warm and sunshiney--our forecast is looking like rain the whole time which will be a bummer for the bachelorette party I'm heading to with my friend tomorrow. Hopefully it passes quickly!
Catch you girls next week!


  1. I've heard great things about the R&F tanner - I should definitely try it! Have a fun weekend! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  2. That photo from daycare is so so sweet!! Does your heart good she loves it and has sweet buddies there! I hope your weekend is as wonderful as you are!!

  3. Aww what a sweet photo from Ella's birthday party! Massages are the best way to relax in my opinion, so glad you got to do that after the festivities. Have a great weekend!

  4. I need to try that sunless tanner. I'm so pale, but I'll take pale over skin damage (and possible cancer) any day. Have fun at the bachelorette party! (And babies in sun hats: SWOON.)

  5. Love you and your corny jokes. But need to get me some more R+F. thanks for the reminder.

  6. I love the R+F Sunless Tanner. I just ordered some more. Love the daycare photo.

  7. Water tables are my girls favorite, too! Yay for first birthdays! XO

  8. I have heard great things about R + F self tanner. I need to use something to maintain my tan. Loving all the cute Ella photos. My girls still love their water table. Have a great weekend!

  9. Love Ella's birthday outfit and so happy to hear the weather warmed up last week! I hope the rain didn't get in the way of your bachelorette party this weekend. My neighbor sells Rodan & Fields so I'm going to ask her about the sunless tanner although I know their prices tend to be steep. The Jergens one sounds like a good affordable alternative!

  10. Our E has that same water table and she absolutely loves it.

  11. Water tables are awesome at that age!! Enjoy those sweet baby cuddles, mama

  12. Water table for the win!!! Those things are seriously awesome and provide so much entertainment! My youngest will still play with it for hours! I love the one Ella has!

  13. I need a good sunless tanner .. I will have to try that one!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
