Cold Shoulder Sweater

Happy Friday!

Well this has been one busy and tiring week! We went to the doctor yesterday and Sutton has RSV. I will be honest I am saying it matter of factly today but I pretty much lost it yesterday when I heard that. It is the worst thing to see your little baby get poked all over when you know they aren’t feeling good to begin with. Sutton was a real trooper!! Continue reading “Cold Shoulder Sweater”

Pretty Planning with START Planner

Hello Loves!!

After the holidays I get thinking of my new year goals and how I am going to follow through and achieve those goals. I actually am a planner by nature, and thrive on being organized. Hoping this planner will help me to be on time to things.  I mentioned a few posts back about my workout goal for 2017!  A few other goals I have for myself is to grow this fun blog I started, help to educate and share my love of essential oils and to live in the moment with my girls. So often I am thinking and planning other things when playing with Harlo especially. I want Harlo and Sutton to see me putting them first and living in the moment. With my planner to plan and organize myself will leave me so much more time to really BE there for the girls! Continue reading “Pretty Planning with START Planner”

New Year’s Style with Crazy 8

Happy Tuesday!

Hope everyone had wonderfully blessed Christmas! We certainly did just came and gone to fast for my liking! However, New Years is right around the corner, who has festive plans for their new years celebration? Getting dolled up and ringing in the new year with my main squeeze sounds tempting but dressing up and celebrating with Harlo and Sutton sounds even better!! I can’t believe we have gone through a whole year already!! Dressing up my girls for holidays and even just for my own mamarazzi photo shoot is the best!

Keeping Fit and Stylin’

2016-2017 End of Year Clearance Sale
Hello lovely friends!

The holidays also get me thinking about goals for the next year! One of my goals is one of those popular goals. WORKOUT! I am not starting just to lose baby weight, I have decided just to start for my health now and for my future! I haven’t worked out since getting pregnant with Sutton. I will be essentially starting over and I am open to some fun workouts that y’all do! My hubby is even interested in starting with me! I don’t do crazy workouts and I don’t go to the gym! I like work outs I can do at home and don’t make me want to die! I enjoy yoga and light weight training! Continue reading “Keeping Fit and Stylin’”

Well this weekend was full of Ho Ho Ho’s, runny noses, and snow! Why can’t there ever be a December without the sneezes sniffles and snots? ha haweekends with the ostrowskis We have been running our Young Living diffuser with Thieves and R.C. to help support little Harlo’s nose and boost her immune system! If you want some of these oils head over here! I am hoping Sutton doesn’t get it but after being sneezed on multiple times a day there is only a small window of hope!;) I also have been putting the thieves on Harlo’s  feet with socks, some breathe easy rub from Honest Company and having her take elderberry syrup!! Annnnd following her around with tissues ha ha ha yep I am that mom 😉bench hangs

So our weekend was fast and chaotic pretty much like most weekends! Saturday we went to the mall to see what I say is the ‘REAL’ Santa because it is the same place I went to see Santa as a kid!! I love the tradition. This year Harlo had no tears just smiles for good ole St. Nick and told him what she wanted for Christmas! (a doll carrier that she can wear) We are at that stage where she wants to mimic everything I do! I love it and never want it to change 🙂 Sutton also did a great job she wasn’t phased one bit! Sunday it snowed ALLLLLLLLLLLL day and we played in for a little bit! Embrace what you do not like!

Holiday Hats

Last night we went out to a local town that has a holiday train come through and performs Christmas music! The train is  decked out with lights and one of the train cars opens up and a band is playing Christmas music and Santa is there too! If it wasn’t so cold we would have stayed the entire time 😉 Harlo has a love for trains right now so she loved watching the train come into town with the pretty lights! It was a fun and super cold event 😉Holiday Train Continue reading “Holiday Hats”
