Oh hey there! Yes, I’m still alive! I didn’t mean to take such a long break from the blog but after coming down with the world’s worst stomach bug over the weekend, I haven’t been able to think of anything other than the back of my eyelids.
I’m back today though sharing some fun things I’ve been loving lately! It’s the little things in life, right? I’ll also be back tomorrow or Friday to FINALLY share a first trimester update, even though we’re well into the second trimester at this point. Better late than never!
Alright, let’s dive in.
iWatch Series 3
I was recently gifted an iWatch, and after being really skeptical of the whole smartwatch fad the past couple years, I think I might be a believer. I was able to choose my watch, and I went with the rose gold aluminum case and sand pink band, and I LOVE it! It’s the perfect shade of pink, and the sizing is spot-on. It’s also very comfortable, something that usually bothers me about watches because my wrists are small and boney. I’ll admit though, that I’m still figuring out all it is capable of, and I’m nowhere near an iWatch expert yet! I honestly probably couldn’t even tell you half the things it can do, and half the time I can’t figure out how to change screens or find things, but I’m learning. Ha! I am really loving the fact that I don’t always have to have my phone in my hand, which is a HUGE plus. It’s been really nice to be able to see text messages, alerts, or emails come through on my watch rather than always checking my phone.
About a month or so ago, my glasses broke in half. Literally. They snapped. In. Half. Pretty annoying when you’re blind as a bat and really rely on your glasses at night after you take your contacts out! Unfortunately, my vision insurance doesn’t cover new frames until mid-March, so I needed to find a cheaper solution to last me until then! Enter: Warby Parker! I received a lot of positive feedback about WP so I decided to give it a try. Basically, they’re an affordable glasses solution where they send you 5 pairs of your choice to try on, then you send them back, and order the pair you loved the most online. I haven’t received them yet, so I can’t speak for the ultimate quality yet, but I can say that I love the frames I picked out and I think I’ll be happy with them as a backup pair no matter what.
Last week I finally had a little extra spending money so I treated myself to some new bedroom lamps! I’ve been wanting to replace our lamps since last summer because Adam’s bedside lamp broke during our move. I looked at places like Target and Home Goods, but ultimately found a pair of lamps at Hobby Lobby that I just had to take home.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Adeline is at the most fun age EVER. Like ever. And she’s recently started singing “her song” aka Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and it absolutely melts my heart every single time. There are no words to describe how sweet it is. Her little voice is just beautiful.
Johnny Weir + Tara Lipinski
YAAAASSSSSS. Please tell me your favorite part about the Olympics is also Weir & Lipinski’s figure skating commentary because it is fantastic. I love this duo so much and they have done such a great job at making the commentary fun, and relatable, and they are just hilarious together!
Leslie Jones at the Olympics
Enough said. Leslie is living her BEST life.
What are you loving lately? Are you a fan of Weir + Lipinski? Have you had a stomach bug lately?
