REMEMBER SHOPPING WITHOUT A MASK?

I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.

NAIYA’S (QUARANTINE) THIRD BIRTHDAY

I blinked and we officially have a three year old!  I’m sure I sound like a broken record at this point but I truly can’t believe how quickly time is FLYING by with my girls.  Also, the growth between ages 2 and 3 is truly mind-blowing!  Last year at this time, Naiya was a baby who had just started nursery school and this year, she’s a non-stop talking tiny person (who is home with us all day during this global pandemic but of course, that’s another story!). Sharing photos today from our special, low-key birthday weekend together and a Naiya update below too. It wasn’t the birthday celebration we would have planned but since Naiya was smiling the entire time, it was definitely one for the memory books. 

ULTIMATE AT-HOME DIY MANICURE

I just got my nail polish 3D-printed for less than the cost of a professional mani and my nails no longer look quarantine-disheveled over here!  If you’re looking for the perfect at-home, salon-perfect mani pedi, sharing a company you should know about today because I’m obsessed. And make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post for a discount code to try this brand out for yourself.

8.5 MONTHS WITH SADIE AMELIE

As quarantine continues, I’m continuing to soak in all of this extra time with my girls. Today, we’re all dressed up with nowhere to go but we’ve gotten used to this of course.  After singing “Let It Go” from ‘Frozen’ 25 times in a row, Naiya asked if we could wear matching princess dresses and she also wanted “ballerina buns” in her hair.  You ask and you shall receive in this household right now.  We put on matching white dresses and Naiya picked out baby Sadie’s floral onesie.  Linking to all of our looks below as well as some of our favorite family snapshots from the weekend. What month is it even? How much bigger can my eyebrows get?! After all, it’s about the most important questions right now. But in all seriousness, hoping everyone is hanging in there as best as possible in all of this craziness.

WHITE EVERLANE SWEATER + LEOPARD

I can’t think of a better time for Netflix’s ‘Tiger King’ to have come out other than during this quarantine. Have you watched it yet? We’re big fans over here (OMG, Joe Exotic’s music kills me), so naturally, our outfits have been reflecting just that. Sharing the cutest leopard onesie Sadie’s been living in the past few weeks as well as a comfy outfit I’ve been loving that feels like sweats but looks more put together.
