Hope everyone had a great weekend. We sure did. We made not one single plan. After a few back to back weekends filled with plans we were happy to just sit at home and watch Homeland- finished the first season. So good!! Need to get my hands on season two ASAP.
Friday Sterling had no school- no idea why they needed to be out Friday and Monday for MLK but they were. Days without school can be long so I hosted a playgroup with a few of his friends. Us moms enjoyed mimosas while the kids played and ate lunch.
How adorable is this picture of the boys praying before lunch? Melted my heart. They all go to the same school and learn the prayer "God Our Father" and they sang it before lunch. Seriously wish I had recorded this sweetness.
My blurb book came in the mail and I could not be more thrilled with it. I did only Instagram pictures since they are hard to print. The quality was fantastic. I ended up doing a soft cover book because it was cheaper and I am so glad I did. Sterling is obsessed it- my child is totally vein, he loves looking at pictures of himself. I highly recommend! The site was easy to use and my book came in less than a week!
I tried my hand at mixing patterns this weekend. I am normally not really one for mixing patterns. I think it looks cute on others but not me. But here is my look for Saturday errands.
I went to two different drugstores and Walmart trying to find the Revlon Soft Nude lipstick. Not one had it of course. However at CVS for 75% I found the shade darker than Soft Nude called Rosy Nude for a whopping $2. It is darker than I wanted but actually not a bad color. And surprisingly the lipstick went on well and stayed on.
Excuse my nasty hair in this picture but this is how the lipstick looks on. Subtle color and it lasts awhile this was after it had been on about 2 hours. Totally worth $2.
Upon further researching I found out the elusive Revlon Soft Nude is now discontinued. I managed to find an Ebay site however that sells them so I ordered one to test out. You can't beat the price.
I found some fab new pillows for our guest bedroom from HomeGoods. Seriously how awesome do these pillows look? It makes me happy everytime I walk by this room. Its coming together slowly but surely.
When did my little baby turn into such a big boy? He is almost too big for the baby swings. Time flies.
I did manage to force him into a cute outfit this weekend, bribery always works. Dressing him has become such a pain in the arse and a challenge. He is so opinionated and all he wants to wear is his spider man shirt. Every. single.day.
Case and point as soon as we got home from church this came back on. And he wants to wear shorts everyday no matter how cold it is. So hard headed.
Boys will be boys.
Happy Monday. No school again (ahhhhhh)!
