What I've Been Priming

Good morning friends! It feels good to be back after a little teensy break. On Wednesday I plan to share more about baby Liam and a (non-overshare) bit of his birth story, but in the meantime I wanted to have my Prime Purchases up before Tanya's link up tomorrow! I did not buy a whole lot on Amazon last month so I will keep this one short and sweet. See you back here Wednesday for a little more info on our sweet boy!

Life Lately

Good morning! We have had a VERY busy past few weeks around here so I figured I'd share a bunch of the pictures I have stashed on my phone.

Friday Favorites-- Trader Joe's Edition, the Frozen Section

Today I am linking up with Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites and I am sharing some of my all time favorite finds from Trader Joe's.. but everything from the FROZEN SECTION. Why from the frozen section? We were so blessed last time we had a baby that several family members/friends/neighbors brought us food and it spoiled us rotten. Then, we ate all the food and realized "oh snap, we actually have to start cooking again??". I am "prepping" in advance for some last minute meals that don't require anything from me except popping it into a microwave. Because when I'm not getting any sleep, making a home cooked meal is NOT how I plan on spending my time. #mustgetsleep #andmaybeashower

Let's Look: My Calendar

Good morning! Today I am linking up with Erika and Shay for Let's Look. The topic today is one of my absolute favorite things... my calendar! If you've been reading here for long, you know that I am obsessed with my planner. I am one of those crazy planner people.

Lily Grace's First Day of 2's Pre-K

Good morning friends and happy Monday! Last week our sweet girl had her first ever day of school. Just like every other mom on the planet when her baby goes off to school, I had a million different emotions. We are so excited for her to begin this new stage of her life (that we know she is more than ready for) and are beyond thrilled that it will be at such a wonderful school. That being said, where did our sweet baby go?! How is it possible that our children get older but we don't? 😉

Here are a few pics from her first day of school:
Ready to go but not so ready to hold her sign still 😂

Friday Favorites-- Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

Good morning friends and happy Friday! I am officially on maternity leave-- woohoo! I now have a glorious week and a half (give or take) where LG has started preschool before the baby's due date. Wouldn't it be my luck that the baby will come tomorrow and I won't get to enjoy any "quiet time" before the craziness hits?? Hah! 

Today I am linking up with Erika and Andrea for Friday Favorites to share with you some of what I **hope** to see as a part of the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. In case you didn't already know, the sale begins in stores this weekend and online Monday.
 This is the BEST time of year to buy Lilly Pulitzer items at a heavily discounted rate. Last year I grabbed a swimsuit, a couple maxi dresses, and some dresses for Lily Grace. I love buying her dresses from the sale because when they're heavily discounted I don't worry as much about things getting on them/them getting stained. 

Here is what I am hoping to see go on sale:
Pearl Stretch Shift Dress-- I love these classic shift dresses because they will still be in style for years to come. They are also so flattering on every body type.

What I've Been Priming

Happy Labor Day friends! I hope you are all enjoying the extra day off today and spending it doing something fun. The weather here is beautiful so we are spending as much time outside as possible today. One of the nearby suburbs of Charlotte has an adorable festival going on this weekend so we are kicking off the day riding some rides with LG and watching her bounce in a bouncy house to her heart's content. If you follow me on Instagram (@lcdarrell) you may have seen some of our videos and pictures from the parade and festival on Saturday. We plan to be back at it again today for more fun.
