Dresses: Vonbon, Headbands: Vonbon, Shoes: Minnetonka
I love having the girls wear matching outfits.  Dahlia, my older daughter, seems to really be into it now too. These dresses they're wearing are so soft and made of organic cotton. The headbands are easy to adjust. I love the knot style. They made the perfect little church outfits.
Penelope has been doing great. She's eating more and more each day.  She started back at school on Monday.  I was so nervous for her to go back.  I just want to keep moving forward and try to get our lives back to as normal as possible (post here to catch up on what happened). Penelope has been so happy to be back at school. I think she just loves being around other kids her age.  The people that work at her school are amazing and she loves them.  They generally can get her to eat more than we can! I think they have the magic touch.
Speaking of getting back to normal, I started to try and get into a routine of running again. I cannot believe how hilly our new hood is.  My run yesterday was so slow because I am not used to running hills.  Normally, when I run on our treadmill I don't adjust the incline.  It's great to finally be able to run outside again! I hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Currently Loving...

 Spring outfits   Sunglasses, Tank Top, Tee, Earrings, Shorts, Black and White off the Shoulder Top, Black Purse, White Off the Shoulder Top Happy Monday! I just wanted to share some of my favorite items out there right now. Shorts and white tops have been on my radar. They remind me so much of summer! It was 90 degrees here on Friday and a little bit cooler the rest of the weekend. The weather just got me so excited for summer. I have been searching high and low for a new swimsuit. So far I’ve found the top I like but I can't seem to find the right bottoms. I am a huge fan of mixing and matching to get the right combo. We ended up having a really busy weekend. We had a birthday party, park play date, campfire with the neighbors, brunch with my mother in law and some water table fun. I just love being outside finally! These are my favorite shorts (I have last year’s version) and this is the BEST tee shirt (I have it in two colors). I really want a pair of these earrings but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. These sunglasses are so cute and such a great price. This top comes in black too and is super cute. I hope all of your weeks get off to a great start!

Make-up Brushes...

IMG_0614 IMG_0609 IMG_0606 IMG_0605 IMG_0603 IMG_0600 IMG_0595 IMG_0592
  Make-up brushes are a perfect Mother's Day gift.  They're something that your mom may not buy for herself but something she would use every day.  This is one of my favorite brushes because I can put my make up on really fast and I love how it goes on.  You use less make-up and get less oil from your hands on your face. Here are some of the reasons I like the brushes and info about them from Sigma's website.  It's always hard to me to tell where to use a brush on my face! The quality is amazing and the prices aren't bad. Brush Cleaning Mat- This is amazing. It makes such a difference in getting your blushes clean. I always struggled to get my brushes clean enough.  It makes a GREAT gift. 3DHD Kabuki - Great for all over. Uniquely designed for all areas of the face to apply liquid, cream and powder products uniformly on every curve, crease and angle. This brush is great for under eyes. Medium Sweeper- This brush features a dense, wide brush head, ideal for exact product placement on lid. Great universal brush for cream or powder products. 3DHD Precision-   It was uniquely designed for smaller areas of the face to apply liquid, cream and powder products uniformly on every curve, crease and angle.  Great for eye shadow base or blemish spots. Angled Contour-  This is the must-have brush for powder bronzer and blush to achieve a gentle contour. Making Contouring really easy! Flat Kabuki - This brush features a flat top brush head with very soft and dense fibers.  This brush provides a flawless, high definition finish with liquid or cream foundation without any absorption of product. LOVE LOVE LOVE this brush.   If you're looking for a last minute gift idea.  Go to Schuler Shoes and try on a pair of Naots. They will donate a pair to those in need. If you buy a pair, they will donate two pairs.  The event starts on May 5-7, more details here.

She wants to eat a blueberry chocolate muffins.  I think it's so funny that she came up with that flavor. It sounds gross! Her teacher's always make it so special so I'm really excited to see what she does. We are going to have brunch at our house on Sunday.  I am looking forward to some bacon, banana bread and waffles. As I've admitted before, I am addicted to off the shoulder tops. I love the color of this one.  It's so cheerful and it stays down, which is hard to find. I also found these AMAZING white jeans. It's a perfect Spring look! I hope you all have fun plans for Mother's Day weekend.

Full Flower Cut Crochet Stripe Top...

Shirt: Chicwish, Jeans: BLANKNYC, Tote: Tory Burch, Ring: BaubleBar, David Yurman, Bracelet: J.Crew, Sunglasses: Karen Walker, Nail Polish: Essie
This week has been BUSY and I am exhausted.  We have family photos tomorrow weather permitting and then after that I am taking a break.  I am going have to make a last minute gap run tomorrow because my order didn’t come in on time. This shirt and jeans are even cuter in person. I have worn the jeans more times this week than I care to admit. I feel like they go with everything. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Floral Shift Dress...

Dress: Charles Henry ( love this one for $88), Shoes: B.P. (similar), Clutch: GiGi (great for Mother's day), Ring: David Yurman, Bracelet: David Yurman, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban (25% off)
I love this dress. I got it to wear to my Mother's Birthday party and a couple other events I had here in Minneapolis this spring. I've gotten so much use out of it. It's the perfect dress to wear to a bridal or baby shower. I just discovered today that it comes in this really cute Chambray, which would be perfect for a Mother's Day brunch. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Mother's Day is this Sunday. I still need to get my Mom a gift. I've been planning on getting her one of my favorite make-up brushes that I'll tell you more about on Wednesday, but you can pick it up here. It is a TOTAL game changer. This weekend we took family photos. I did not think they were going to turn out because it was really cold on Saturday morning and Penelope was so crabby. Our photographer gave us a little sneak peak at the photos yesterday and they're adorable. The lighting was perfect and she got some really good ones in between Penelope's tears. After that, my husband put together our new chairs for our pouch and we played outside as much as we could all weekend. I wish it would have been a little bit warmer, but it wasn't raining so I can't really complain. I hope you all had a great weekend.
