1| Nordstrom Finds
Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you've heard that the half-yearly sale is going on at Nordstrom right now (through May 31). I wasn't planning on making any purchases - or even looking - but my will power just wasn't strong enough. I ordered this swing tank (in rose water, shown below), this lace-hem camisole (which I can picture layering so well under sweaters and such in the fall), and this one button wrap (in the plaid) that everyone keeps talking about. I have already received and love each item so far...
I'm considering going back for more. I have my eye on these adorable wedges, this Kendra Scott cuff bracelet (shown below - which never goes on sale!) and this pretty little thing while they are marked down. The anniversary sale is coming up in July, so I am trying to be good and wait for that. But goodness, Nordy's makes their sales hard to refuse! And it doesn't help that stuff flies when it goes on sale either. The pressure. Struggle is real, y'all.
2| Self Tanner
So, I used this product to give my Casper the Ghost white legs a bit of color this week. The result wasn't terrible - I definitely had a nice little glow. However, I also had a few lovely little streaks. For the price, I'd consider continuing to use them. However, I am definitely open to suggestions for better options. I prefer tanning towelettes - so much easier and less messy than lotions and foams. Suggestions?
3| Old Navy Wish List
I've said it before, but I really feel like Old Navy has been hitting it out of the park this season. I keep going back and finding adorable things that I didn't see the last time I was there. Last time I made a purchase, I earned some super cash, and will be using that up this weekend, as it starts on Saturday. I'm hoping to snag this chambray sundress, these adorable cropped pants, and this cute little tank. Oh, and another pair of these. Have you seen them? They are like (cute) flip flops with ankle straps. All I can think of is just how much more convenient they will be when walking down the beach with a toddler and infant in tow - no more worrying about flip slops slipping off in the hot sand. On that thought, maybe I should get a pair in every color....
4| Life Lately
B and I are up to our ears in diapers, toy cars, and tiny laundry. And I won't lie and pretend like every day is magical or easy. Being up at all hours of the night with a wailing newborn is not for the faint of heart - and definitely makes you question your sanity at times. But, the love that we have for these children makes my heart hurt in the best kind of way. At times, when I look at these tiny people that we created, I think it might just explode. Watching Caleb grow and mature has been so special. He really has grown so much in the last few weeks, and has taken to having a little sister like a duck to water. He's amazing. And Vivi? Well, she's the cutest little nugget you ever did see! She's so sweet and snuggly. We hate to see her sweet little face screwed up to cry, and really hope that she outgrows this colicky stage soon. Here's a few photos from life lately:
My daily view. A pretty cute way to start the day.
She's trying so hard to lift that little head. Can't miss a thing.
Watching the rain.

That one little curl...
This weekend, B and I are getting not one, but TWO, much-needed date nights! Woohoo! Tonight we are dressing up and heading to a dinner roast with his colleagues, which should be fun - orthopedic surgeons know how to have a good time, in case you've ever wondered. I've never seen anyone get roasted before, so I'm curious to watch it go down:) And tomorrow night, we have a double date to one of our favorite local restaurants with two of our favorite people - my sweet mama friend, Kristen, and her hubby. Can't wait to catch up with them. B's mom will be watching both kids for us tonight, and tomorrow night, we are hoping Vivian cooperates because she will be coming with us while Caleb gets some time to hang out with Pops.
Is it sad that I'm most excited about the prospect of doing hair and makeup two days in a row and having a reason to wear a cute outfit? Sad, but true.
Happy weekend! To join in on the Friday fun, link up with any of the following ladies/blogs!
