Friday Favorites

Hi All!  This has been a crazy week.  Hubby was on an extended work trip for the first time since Baby N was born.  Thank goodness for my mom because it was a little C-R-A-Z-Y, especially during bed time.  Whoever said having a third is just like having two is dead wrong!  Especially early on when the little babe needs so much attention.  I could write a whole blog post about this one!

Anyway, here are my weekly favorites.


I've been looking for cute winter hats.  This one is currently in my shopping cart and I'm in love with the double Pom!  This double Pom beanie and this beanie are also adorable and more budget friendly.

I also like to twin with my baby boy so I recently purchased him this adorable infant beanie along with these lighter ones for when he gets a bit bigger.


Hubby got me a new iPad for my birthday and I like to use a keyboard with my old one.  The old keyboard didn't fit the slim new iPad 9.7 so I found an amazing one that I LOVE.  This iPad keyboard is stylish, functional, and cheaper then some of the other ones I've looked at that are in the store.


While I've been home on maternity leave I've been dreaming about refurbishing my office.  I usually like to choose a color scheme and run with it.  I've been really liking navy blue lately and have been looking at this rug.  I am also obsessed with the idea of a blue velvet chair like this one or this one.

Happy Friday!!!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  As I've been mommy'ing over the past few weeks I've been thinking about how to manage my time including my blog.  #Reallife has taken over and it's challenging to juggle all the things pulling me in different directions.  As you can see in the picture above, nothing is quite what it seems in a perfect snapshot of a moment.  

So, I'm going to try something a little different and on Fridays post links to my favorite finds through out the week.  I've been spending a lot of time browsing the web while nursing (even in the middle of the night) or walking around the stores since I am not yet allowed to exercise.  Below are some of the things I've found and loved.

Fashion & Style

Comfortable fashion is my go to lately.  Especially while losing my post pregnancy weight.  I recently purchase this striped graphic long sleeve T-shirt from Old Navy and it is so easy to wear with denim and sneakers.  I also purchased this lace up sweater from Old Navy which is totally comfy.  I purchase both in size small.  Did I mention they are also both on sale!  

My white lace dress I'm wearing in the picture above is so pretty and at a great price from Chicwish.  It's beautiful and easily dressed up or down.  I purchase mine before the baby was born in a S/M.  Even with the extra post baby weight it was very flattering.


Occasionally, the boys give me a little "break" around dinner time.  We had chicken cutlets that hubby offered to grill but I wanted something different.  I tried out this Chicken Francese recipe.  I substituted earth's balance butter instead of regular butter since I suspect baby N is allergic to milk protein like my oldest boy was and am currently on a non-dairy diet.  I also added shallots and then strained everything before I added the chicken back into the sauce.  I did not follow the cooking instructions exactly so instead of baking the dish I just simmered on the stove top in the pan.  It turned out delicious and the best Chicken Francese I've made so far!

All things Baby

I just purchased these Milkies Milk-Savers Breast Milk Collector Storage today.  I tried it out immediately and they work amazing!  Instead of my milk being wasted on the opposite side from where I was nursing it collected in these cups just as advertised.  I definitely wish I had them sooner.

My favorite milk savor bags are from Lansinoh and my all time favorite burp clothes are these very plain ones from Dundee Mills.  They aren't as pretty as some others but they are larger and more absorbent which is what you really need them for.

Have a great weekend!!!
