Aloha! Chris and I flew to Maui yesterday for some much needed R&R and a little babymoon he surprised me with for Valentine’s day. The funny thing is, we have never taken a babymoon before, but I guess it’s our last one so we’re living it up before becoming a family of five! We’ve never been to Hawaii before and don’t have any major plans while we’re here–snorkeling, eating, and relaxing are topping our list. But if you have any outstanding places or restaurants we should definitely check out, especially in the Ka’anapali area where we’re staying, we’d love to hear!
We have a few posts scheduled for while we’re gone, but I couldn’t resist checking in today and sharing a few things that I came across this week that I can’t get out of my mind… (cue my terrible podcast song? haha)
• We try to get a few new books for each child that comes along. Of course, they are always loved and read by all, but it’s a nice way to grow our little library over time. This week, we picked up three new ones, including Next To You—a ridiculously adorable book that’s written as well as it is illustrated. It goes through beyond cute scenarios featuring animals that you’d do anything for–and always goes back to, but next to you, they’re just okay. Or, meh. We laughed and squealed. It’s a must have!
• Obsession level: madness with this bathroom before and after!
• I’m working on a budget version of our one room challenge nursery (just like we did for the girls’ room) but in the meantime, here’s a really good copy cat ($200 for an 8×10!) for the gorgeous rug we added to the space this week.
• I have received so many questions and compliments on my eyelashes–they are extensions! I have been getting them done since December–originally for a shoot, but then I couldn’t stop because it has made for a very low maintenance routine. However, I just got them filled for the last time before this trip. My lashes are growing and shedding like crazy and while I used to only have to get a fill ever 3-4 weeks, it was becoming necessary at least every two–which is no longer low maintenance. Wah WAhhhhhh. The good news is that my friend, who has the most incredible lashes (that I thought she just HAD) told me she uses Babe Lash serum and within a month hers were long and thick and now they really look like extensions! I’ll return and report, but for only $35 (compared to so many super expensive serums out there) it’s definitely worth a shot!
Hope you all have a happy, sunny weekend!
