Friday Favs


Friday, April 29, 2016

I survived my first week back in the office and it's finally Friday. I have never been so happy to see you. Being back in the office after being out for two and a half weeks is rough. Sure I had tons of emails to catch up on, lots of work to do, but jet lag kept creeping up on me.

Anyways, let's get onto our Friday Favorites with Karli and April.

One. We have family photos tomorrow. Finally. I am excited and nervous about it. Excited because we need updated photos of our cuties, but nervous because it is in between meals and they can get cranky and want their naps. Our pictures are scheduled for 9 am because the light is perfect then and we have a busy day ahead of us. I have our clothes mostly picked out, but hoping (more like stressing) that they go together.

Two. That brings us to our busy day after pictures. We are taking the girls to my in-laws house for their first sleepover away from home. My in-laws are beyond excited. We picked up another pack n play from my aunt this week and now we just have to pack for the girls overnight trip. Why are the girls going on an overnight? Well Rory and I have a wedding to attend tomorrow afternoon and we don't want to come home (the reception is a mile from our house) slightly tipsy and worry about taking care of the girls. So we did the responsible thing and asked if the grandparents wanted a sleepover. It wasn't a hard sale at all.

I received my dress a couple weeks back and I loved it until I tried it on when I got home from Tel Aviv and as Rory was zipping it up, the zipper busted. It zipped but had that gap in the zipper. I freaked out a bit, but managed to get it off and get it unzipped without damaging it. But I was worried it would happen again when wearing it. I contacted Lombard and Fifth and they were super sweet about it. They sent me a new one and the next size up just in case. And then I send the damaged one back along with the one I don't want and it is all free shipping. Amazing customer service.

Three. Nordstrom is price matching Ray-Ban glasses and I really want to pull the trigger on these. I loved my Ralph Lauren aviators and I tried these on and need them. And they are on sale. Should I? On sale for $116.

Four. Speaking of more shopping, I want to get some peep toe booties or booties in a nudish color. I have my eye on these two. Need, want, must have.

Five. I am on the hunt for a water table for my girls. I have looked a few up on amazon, but I want to hear which ones you have and ones that you love. I think my girls would love one this summer. Send me your picks.

Six. I had to throw one more in here because I love this stuff. I know I have mentioned it before, but I love Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser. This stuff is gold. I never got dark circles until I had my lady babies. I tried to get by with a little concealer and then Jess (from The Newly) mentioned this dark circle concealer and I knew I had to try it out. It hasn't disappointed at all. I pretty much use this stuff daily and I am only a quarter through the bottle and I have had it for months. Buy this stuff. It is so much cheaper than the YSL stuff I was buying and works just as good, if not better.

Have a good weekend!

  1. Oh no! I'm so glad the company is being so awesome about the stress. That's great. Can't wait to see it on you. Yay for their first sleepover. My kids have slept other places, but not without us. Cam had slept at home with Mimi AG our house when Emmy was born but that's it. The girls will have a blast. :) love those shoes. Have a great weekend!

  4. Yay for grandparent sleepovers and fun at weddings! enjoy! We have a basic water table (I think it's step 2 and blue) and it's fine. I think more features would be more exciting. Hope your pictures go well!

  5. I'm so glad you were able to get the new dress. I love it so much. Have so much fun at the wedding. I can't wait to see pics. We have the busy ball step 2 water table. It's basic, but the ball feature is fun for a little boy.

    1. Was the water table expensive? I definitely want one for the girls and a small slide to put inside. A few twin moms recommended it to me. Now the search is on.

    1. I think I need to get the sunglasses. I made some extra cash through overtime on my trip and I think those glasses are just what I need. Yes need because my others broke and I have to fix them daily.
