Links I Love {35}

Dreaming of blossoms and warmer weather!

ONE // I made this popcorn and ate it while watching The Bachelor. I think I enjoyed the popcorn more than the show.

TWO // Future entryway goals! So pretty!

THREE // B loves these letter recognition worksheets.

FOUR // Do you shave your face?!? I started to about a year ago and love it! Here's a good video explaining how.

Happy Friday!

Little Things

We survived the storm this weekend! We had our second nor'easter here in Boston. This last one was a lot more intense than the first. Water was coming over the sea wall a couple hours before high tide, so I packed the boys up and we headed to a friend's house for the day/night. Thankfully our apartment didn't flood! A tree did fall near it though so that tells you how strong the wind was.

Now on to the real reason for this post!

The boys were outside playing with their trucks one afternoon this week. I was wishing we were doing something more fun especially with how much we've stayed home lately. Then the thought came to me: "They are having a blast doing what they're doing."

As moms we guilt ourselves way too much and I'm totally at fault with doing this too often. We need to remember more that our kids enjoy the simple things just as much (or more) than the big outings we take them on.

This was a great reminder that I needed this week and if it does anything, I hope that it will help you remember to not be so hard on yourself!

What's Up Wednesday {2/28/18}

It's been a little quiet over here on the blog and in our lives in general. We don't have anything exciting going on right now (except for B having the flu) and I'm fine with that because the next few months are going to be busy ones!

With that being said, here's a look at our month with What's Up Wednesday and of course I'm linking up with ShaySheaffer, and Mel!

What we're eating this week: I made this Eclair Cake on Sunday and it was a hit! B has requested tacos and tortellini for dinner so I'm sure those will be on the menu sometime this week!

What I'm reminiscing about: A year ago we visited Boston for the first time and I was dreading moving here. Fast forward a year and we love it here and are so grateful for this adventure!

What I'm loving: Being able to put my hair in a ponytail! I'll put a picture on Instagram soon!

What we've been up to: Laundry with my little helper, taking down the Valentine's decor, and sanitizing the apartment- we are tired of being sick!

What I'm working on: Eating healthier! I asked my friend to write up a meal plan for me and I've been trying to stick to it. It's tough!

What I'm watching: NCIS and The Bachelor! It's the first time in a while I haven't looked at spoilers for The Bachelor, so I'm excited for the finale!

What I'm reading: Royal Target by Traci Hunter Abramson - Such a good, easy read! I just started As You Are and it's been great as well!

What I'm listening to: The Greatest Showman (still:)) and Marco Polos- I have LOVED this app for staying in touch with friends!

What I'm wearing: It's still winter over here, so lots of sweaters, long sleeves, and boots!

Ignore Baby E sleeping on the floor. He would not wake up when checking out at the store! haha

What I'm doing this weekend: We don't have anything planned and sometimes those are the best kind of weekends!

What I'm looking forward to next month: Hopefully being outside more and more sunny days!

What else is new: Nothing I can think of!

What's your family's favorite spring break destination? We love going to the beach or visiting different states! This year we have a fun trip planned in April that I can't wait to tell you about!

Mount Vernon in DC

Happy Wednesday Friends!
