It’s not a vacation recap post, but it’s a post! (Working on that, I promise. So. Many. Pictures. To. Edit.)
We (Camden) have had a rough week adjusting to life post-vacation. As hard as I tried to keep him on his normal schedule, the poor guy is having a ROUGH time sleeping. Maybe because he slept in the same room as us all week? He is also in the middle of a developmental leap which never fails to bring about sleep issues. All I know is that I laid on the floor of his room for one hour and forty five minutes on Tuesday night while he fell asleep because he screamed like he was being murdered if I left. Yay for sleep training round two!
Other than that, it’s been pretty fun around here lately! Here’s a little peek for you:
ONE | Nathan and I got away for the night a few weeks ago to see Hillsong United in Nashville and it was amazing! We left home early so we could get dinner at Bar Taco and wander around Nashville for a little while before the show – highly recommend Bar Taco for dinner if you are in the area by the way. Poor Nathan was only about a week in to recovery for having his wisdom teeth out but was such a trooper. The concert was amazing of course and I only cried once about leaving my baby for the first time overnight. #momlife
ALSO. I’m not sure if this is common knowledge but I found an awesome trick for keeping your off-the-shoulder-tops OFF your shoulders without pulling them down all night so I had to share! You basically take two safety pins and loop a hair tie through them, then clip them to your shirt so that the hair tie fits under your arm pit. Here’s a video that shows you. Game changer!
TWO | I have a ton of books that I’ve read in the past few months that I need to share with you! Someday… While we were on vacation I finished Eligible and in the end, I really, really liked it but it did take me a while to get in to. Probably for the same reason that I couldn’t get in to the original Pride and Prejudice book or the movie with Kiera Knightly – there are SO MANY dang characters it’s hard to keep them straight for a while. Has anyone else read these books and felt this way?
THREE | Last night my sister-in-law and nephew came over for dinner and these boys has so much fun being silly and playing together! Cam loves to be around other kids so much – I’m so excited for him to start his Mother’s Morning Out program this fall. He’s going to love it!
FOUR | I served these Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers over Coconut Rice for dinner last night and it was a major hit all around! I added onions to mine because we looove grilled onions. My sister-in-law was also telling me that they don’t have a grill and I was super confused. Like, how do you cook in the summer? Don’t stoves take a sabbatical? EVERYTHING tastes better on the grill!
FIVE | I talked over on my Instagram yesterday about how apparently the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale means the start of fall to WAY too many people. I will allow you to spam me with posts about fall clothes that are part of the sale (because I get it girl $$$), but I will not allow any other talk of the f-word in my feed. I LOVE fall, I really do but I don’t want anything to do with it until we have squeezed every last drop out of summer, mmk?
Have a great weekend, friends!
