Links I Love {24}


Happy Friday!!

This week was a busy one and involved FOUR trips to the DMV! I won't tell you how annoying it was but I'm happy to say that I hopefully don't have to go back for a long time! :)

We also took a day trip to Rockport, MA this week and loved getting out of the city! All of the pictures and details will be up on the blog next week!

ONE // If you've followed my blog for a while you know that I love tea tree shampoo! I got this shampoo and conditioner a couple weeks ago and I love the smell and how clean and soft it makes my hair! Maple Holistics has an awesome free sample program that you should join if you love trying out new hair products that are reasonably priced!

TWO // I've got some exciting news! I'm now a brand rep for Lexi's Loft! She makes the cutest graphic tees, like the Wifey one I'm wearing above. Be sure to check out her shop and you can use this promo code: WHATLINDSEYWORE for 15% off!

THREE // This bell sleeved top is so cute, affordable, and has stripes!

FOUR // I've decided to do preschool with B a couple times a week at home. This week we got his workbook and lesson plans! It's going to be a little work on my part but I think he'll enjoy it!

Have a great weekend!!

Linking up with.....Friday Favorites,  High Five for Friday
I received Maple Holistics Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner to review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own!

Day in the Life {Summer 2017}

I haven't done a day in the life post since March and I love reading these types of posts. The past two weeks have been so fun and I wanted to remember one of these summer days! 

Disclaimer: I was really bad at taking pictures this time because I kept forgetting, so I'm sorry!

4:30am I woke up to feed Baby E and by the time I was done my husband was leaving for work.

4:55 I went back to sleep!

6:41 B came into my room and Baby E wakes up. We eat breakfast and I shower.
7:55 We walk to B's swim lessons. It's only 65 degrees and I felt so bad that B had to swim in the cold!
8:30 Swimming lessons are finished. We walk home and I switch the laundry I started beforehand. I feed Baby E his baby oatmeal.

8:50 Baby E goes down for his morning nap and I do my hair and makeup.
9:45 We run some errands and go to singing time at the library.

11:15 We meet our friend at Castle Island and do a photo shoot for her Etsy shop, Lexi's Loft. (I'll be posting pictures next week!)
12:05pm I let B play at the playground before we head home to eat lunch.

1:20 Nap Time! Mom break for me!

3:40 Both boys are up...One child ended up sleeping and the other didn't!

4:10 I folded laundry while the boys played with cars.
5:00 I made tacos for dinner and we ate. Baby E has his chicken and apples:)
6:15 I hosted a Bachelorette Finale watching party!

6:30 Baby E goes to bed!

7:45 B goes to bed!

8:15 My husband gets home!

8:40 We finish watching the show and I'm so glad this season is over!

8:50 I hang out with my husband while he writes notes and I watch Heartland.
10:30 Bedtime!

Three Things

Hey everyone!!

I thought today was a good day to share three new things going on with each of us!
Baby E:
1) He's so easy to make laugh and smile! He's definitely making up for all of that crying he did his first seven months!

2) Walks along furniture and can stand up in the middle of a room.

3) Still doesn't have any teeth and is nine months old...I'm not too worried but I am starting to wonder where they all are!

B:
1) Started swimming lessons last week!

2) Is so good about telling me if Baby E is stuck somewhere or about to eat something bad!

3) Has been playing pretend with his animals a lot lately and it's so funny to listen to the things they say to each other!

Hubby:
1) Got sprayed by a skunk riding his bike to school! How does this happen in Boston?!?! Luckily he was able to just change his scrubs and the smell went mostly away!

2) Has never been so tired in his life!

3) Has the least amount of laundry of any of us because the hospital washes his scrubs!

Myself:
1) I made overnight oats for breakfast last week for the first time and they are so good! My favorite mix-in is raspberries with cookies and cream protein powder!

2) HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts have been my go-to workout this summer. I love that they don't have to be very long but I sweat a bunch!

3) My friend told me about these dresses and they are so cute! I got this one for my birthday!

Have a great week!

Life Lately


Sorry I've been a little MIA lately. My husband started his oral surgery residency and life got crazy for him, which in turn meant that I have been single momming it. He's been gone 100+ hours a week (it's insane!) and it's been really hard and overwhelming for both of us. I'm not telling you this to feel bad for us but it's just our life right now and we are pushing through!

The boys and I are loving Boston! We have been trying out new playgrounds and making new friends. I have been getting pretty good at parallel parking too;)


I spoke in church on Sunday and this quote is from my talk: "Men and women who turn their lives over to God will find out that he can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He will deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, raise up friends, and pour out peace. Whoever will lose his life to God will find he has eternal life." (Ezra Taft Benson)

This time of our lives has been harder than ever but we both know that there's a reason why we're supposed to be in Boston and doing what we're doing, so we'll continue looking heavenward for guidance and strength!

I want to say that I'll be back to blogging regularly but like I said were still adjusting and figuring out life right now so I'll try to get blogging more frequently but I can't promise anything!
