Happy Friday! Vance is three weeks old as of today. We’re loving getting to know this little guy a bit better each day, and he already feels like such a perfect addition to our family. (I’m starting to take some of my own advice from this recent Zulily post I wrote with tips on getting babies to sleep, and last night was the best night we’ve had with Vance so far. We’re hoping for more like that!)
Kevin’s brother, Justin, and his wife, Katie, are coming to visit this weekend to meet Vance for the first time, and we can’t wait to spend time with them! Hope you have a fun weekend ahead as well.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share a handful of things I’ve been enjoying lately:
-First, how amazing was President Biden’s announcement last night that all American adults will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine by May 1? I was SO excited to hear that news! I feel like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel as we hit the one year mark of this crazy pandemic.
–I treated myself to a pair of the Vuori joggers I’d been hearing such amazing things about as a postpartum gift, and I can officially say they live up to the hype. I LOVE how soft and comfy these are, and know another pair will be in my future at some point.
-Have you tried the new plantain croutons from Trader Joe’s? We can’t get enough of them at our house! My favorite ways to enjoy them include: on salad, in soup, and by the handful straight from the bag!
-Another food item that’s been at the top of my list lately is the Hot Pink smoothie from Village Juice. Not only is it gorgeous (that COLOR!!!), it also tastes incredible. (I also highly recommend their blondie brownies. Talk about delicious!)
-Here’s one more clothes-related thing to share. (Well, two things, really.) I got two new pairs of shoes that I’m really digging and wanted to pass them along. One is a pair of camo sneakers from Target (they’re SO comfy and I love the subtle camo print to make them just a bit more interesting than a solid pair), and the second is a pair of white and gold sneakers from a new-to-me online retailer, Evereve. (Aren’t they cute? I can’t wait to wear them with joggers or a casual dress!)
-Last up: You may have heard me rave about Force of Nature all-purpose cleaner. I love that it’s SUPER safe (I don’t have any worry cleaning around the kids) but that it’s also on the EPA’s list of disinfectants approved for use against COVID-19. (Talk about a win-win!)
