Welcome to the Sunday Skim… Get your coffee and enjoy a few minutes of peace…
Fashion… We are in the season of the gown as I like to call it. Awards season is upon us and that means our tv screens and computers will be full of pictures of beautiful dresses and people telling us why they loved them or hated them. I like someone who is willing to be brave and take a risk. These are some ladies who really pushed the boundaries last season.
Family… We started working on Paxton’s wagon float for his Mardi Gras parade yesterday. He was really wanting a Ghost Busters float but we talked him into a Star Wars float instead. If you are looking for ideas here are a few I came across on Pinterest. Bee In a Garden // Space Shuttle // Bath Time // Circus
Food and Drink… For my friends who are doing Whole 30 this month this recipe is for you. We are not doing Whole 30 but we made this recipe the other night and it was amazing. Smoky Bacon Sweet Potato Hash
News… If you watched the Golden Globes last weekend then you were able to see Oprah Winfrey’s amazing speech. If you haven’t heard it yet you can view it here or read the transcript here. I have watched it more times than I can count this week.
Social… We are so excited to be partnering with Northshore Birth Options as a sponsor of their Preparing for Postpartum event February 4th. You can view all their event details here and I will be doing a special post dedicated to postpartum dressing prior to the event.
Health… I have always been terrible about eating breakfast. All my life I never was one to eat breakfast and it always made my mom crazy. It wasn’t until I got pregnant with Porter and having terrible morning sickness that I started eating it regularly. Now I have to eat first thing or I feel terrible all day. The kids are good eaters for the most part but I have a hard time getting Paxton to eat in the mornings so I try to mix it up a lot. These are some great ideas to get you out of the routine of eating the same thing every day. 39 Healthy Breakfasts for Busy Mornings
Lifestyle… One of my resolutions for 2018 is to get all of our pictures into photo books. I take so many pictures so at least I am capturing the memories but now I just need to get them somewhere we can look at them. Shutterfly is having a 50% off hardcover photo book sale now through the 15th. Use code: FAVORITES.
Home… Just like I thought Target is continuing their collaboration with Chip and Joanna Gaines and Hearth and Hand with Magnolia has a spring line. It launched at Target a few weeks ago. The line is smaller than the first Christmas/Winter feature but they have been adding items little by little. Here are a few of my favorites… Woodgrain Desktop Clock // Stoneware Pitcher // House Bud Vases // Pomelo Coconut Lidded Candle // Embroidered Placemats
Beauty… I suffer from bad dry skin in the winter. These are some great tips in case it is an issue for you too.
