This embroidered white top from the Sweetest Stitch is such a springtime staple! I’m always looking for a amped up white tee that’s easy and cute, but not too casual, and this one is everything! Embroidery is such a hot trend this year but I know it can be a little intimidating. Trying pieces with thick colorful stitch work is hit or miss, so a top that’s neutral like this one is great. I just saw this embroidered dress on their site… So cute!! Perfect for summer!

I haven’t even posted since we got back from California! We had such a great time! I’m missing my family so much already! Porter played so hard with all his cousins. One night we were there he fell asleep at 5:30 and slept till 7:00 the next day!!! I was so nervous he would wake up at midnight, ready to party, but thank God he slept through the night! My hometown is known for it’s rodeo and he was so excited to go, but he only lasted about 2o minutes, lol. Thankfully we had a plan for my parents to pick him up in case that happened.

I just started reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I’m not very far but it’s so good already! I can already tell it’s gonna be a forever favorite!

We had the most perfect day to try out our new Planet Box Lunchbox! Confession time… I’m really picky about how my food is stored! I can’t handle anything in the bread, cracker, cookie, family stored in a plastic baggie. Fruit, veggies, and nuts are fine, anything else, no way! This is why I was so excited about my Planet Box! I love that that there’s a guide for how much to pack, I didn’t have to put Porter’s yogurt or dip in a a bunch of different plastic containers, and the portioning is perfect! There are three different lunchboxes to choose from so you can choose which design best fits your eating routine. I chose the Rover because Porter, John, and I like variety when we eat so no matter who I’m packing a lunch for it’s the perfect portions for us.

I loved not having a ton of trash after our picnic! No brown paper bag or plastic baggies to throw away! I can’t wait to take it when we go hiking, I hate having to pack a ton of different containers or baggies when the the goal is to keep your carrying load minimal and then having all the empty containers and trash to carry! John and I both tend to forget our plastic containers either at work or in the car and then they stink so bad, not with this! The clean up was so easy and didn’t retain any smell!

The carrying bag was perfect for our picnic! It fit Porter’s sippy cup, utensils, lunchbox, and his Boogie Wipes! I had everything I needed all in one bag! I really like that that Planet Box is practical for everyone, not just moms! Go check out the different designs they have, there’s something for everyone!  Note:  They have Bambini Eugene listed as a store you can buy these at!  Go and support a local shop!

I’ve really been longing for spring lately. I don’t know if it’s the after Christmas slumps, or the cold gloomy weather, or both!  When I got this cape from Trunk-Up Boutique in the mail and put it on, my somber feelings about the weather completely went out the window!!

I was so comfortable and warm without having to put on a ton of layers. I was so happy the weather will be cool enough so I can continually wear this cape, because I love it THAT much! I’m even more in love with the color than I thought I would be! It’s kind of an olive/yellow with specks of all different colors! You can’t really see in the photos, but it has the cutest button up detail along the neck too! This is the second item I’ve gotten from Trunk-Up and I love their company! Go check them out!

Trunk-Up has graciously offered to give away this exact same cape to one of my followers on Instagram.  All you have to do is follow me and Trunk-Up Boutique and like the latest Giveaway picture on IG.  Winner will be announced soon! Update:  Congratulations Missmazariegos for winning the Cape!  I hope you love it!!

Porter and I had a little mommy/son day date to go see “tractor in the sky.” (Huge crane that is being used to build a new hotel) We got some Starbucks (chocolate milk for him), yummy treats, and he sat and watched in awe. I’m really loving this age! He’s talking so much more, asking questions, arguing (lots of fun) 🙂

It’s John’s birthday on Sunday and my brothers birthday on Monday! Excited to spend some time with my guys!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

When I saw this black and white striped dress I just had to have it! I’m such a sucker for stripes and this is a dress I can wear into spring! I bought a medium because I wanted it a little big and I didn’t want it to be too short! I think a small would have been perfectly fine though! Now I want every black and white striped dress I see in every style and cut! This was the first non-rainy day in so long and I was sooooo happy to see the sun! This dreary weather has really been wearing on me!

On the plus side I have been getting a ton of wear out of my Hunter boots, it’s all I’ve been reaching for! They are a must have in this PNW weather! If you are thinking of buying a pair check out my What to know before buying Hunter Boots post!

John surprised me last weekend with tickets to go see The Revenant- It was so good! I’m a huge movie lover and from the moment I saw ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?’ I was an instant Leo fan! I recommend it for sure if you can handle gory movies!

We had our first ever all night throwing up sickness with Porter last night 🙁 We knew it was only a matter of time. Thank God he was only sick one night because it was awful to see my baby so sick! He’s back to his good 0l’ self asking for cake pops and trips to go see “tractor in the sky!’

Hope everyone is enjoying 2016 so far!!
