Friday Favorites

What a week! I am so looking forward to some weekend fun & relaxation before I am officially flying solo with both girls home with me next week. I am freaking out just slightly. We had such a fun week, celebrating Cinco de Mayo with some pineapple margaritas on the patio.

My recipe went a little something like this: 1 cup tequila, 1/2 cup triple sec, about 8-10 freshly squeezed limes, 1 cup pineapple juice & 1 cup pineapple orange juice (simply orange brand). Mix together, pour over ice & garnish with lime & fresh pineapple wedge. I don’t measure everything perfectly so you can definitely do more or less of some ingredients depending on your taste. They were so so good!!

A major perk of the warm weather is being able to bring Harper’s highchair outside for dinner, gotta love not having a mess to clean up! Well, other than the actual mess of Harper herself! 😉 Her favorite outdoor activity these days is picking up pinecones & hitting them with her little golf clubs. Such an imagination she has!

We finally got out of the house this week since I can drive again after my c-section, we did some much needed shopping & a few coffee dates. I have been wearing Eloise in my Solly Baby Wrap that I finally decided to buy, such a great investment. I’m not sure I’m ready to tackle double-strollering quite yet, so this has been an amazing way to take both girls out together. I am currently putting together my “baby number two favorites” post & will be sharing some of the things that have been lifesavers for us. If you have something amazing to share, please do! 🙂

Some not-so-favorites from the week? Our new sleep schedule which is the equivalent of “never”, although I can’t really complain because overall Ellie is a pretty darn good baby. And her cuteness really makes everything okay in my book. I had my first experience trying to nurse while trying to put an overtired, unhappy toddler down for a nap (all while not being able to pick her up). Holy moly. Hats off to all moms who do this regularly, I had no idea what I was in for!
It is officially getting HOT in the south which means it’s time for the girls to rock some sundresses & rompers! I am in love with this denim bubble romper for Eloise & totally wish it came in Harper’s size.
I have been on a swimsuit hunt for quite some time & have officially fallen in love with this floral print (which is on sale this week!). Harper starts swim lessons soon too which makes me so excited for lots of pool time this summer. I also can’t wait to put Eloise in all of Harper’s baby swimsuits that I love so much, although I’m not sure she is squishy enough to fit in them quite yet! 😉

Mother’s Day is this weekend, it seems so fitting to celebrate both my mom & mother-in-law right now after all of the help they have been for us over the last few weeks. After having them stay with us & cooking together a bunch, my gifts are going to be recipe books! This recipe tin or this recipe book are both beyond cute, especially filled with some of your own favorite recipes & even some mixes (like fajita seasoning or cookie mix in a jar) to go along with it!

I hope you all have the best weekend!! You all are some of the kindest, most inspirational moms I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, I hope you all enjoy your mother’s day celebrations with your families!
