I've rounded up five things I'm loving this week...
1. The Wet Brush Pro
I realize I'm like 5 years late to the game on this one but this brush is life changing!! I had heard so many good reviews about it and I kept putting it in my Amazon cart but never purchased it. Then I used my sister's when we were on vacation and I was shocked. It's really that good. I have fine hair that knots easily, even worse after two babies and this brush just glides easily through my hair. No more pulling or ripping needed. I have a feeling this is going to help with all the awful breakage I've been having lately. If you've been on the fence- go buy one now!!
2. Think Thin Protein Bars
I have been struggling with healthy high protein meals/snacks lately. I wish I had time to sit down and make myself elaborate healthy snacks but I do not (and I know that one day I will and I will probably being crying because my babies are grown up.. I digress). So in the time being I've been looking for something that will fill me up and curb my sweet tooth. These Think Thin Bars have been perfect. My favorite flavors are peanut butter and brownie crunch. They're a perfect late afternoon snack when I'm teetering between coffee and wine and just wanting to open up the container of goldfish and take it down.
3. Pottery Barn Kids Catalina Bed
I think we have finally settled on a new bed for Miller's room. I have been searching and searching the internet and stores for months for the perfect bed and it doesn't exist, or if I find it it's over $2000 which just is not in our budget for a toddler room! I really wanted him to have a traditional four poster (but shorter posts not tall ones) but I can't find any that I love that are budget friendly so this PBK one is a good compromise. We are 99% sure we're going with the cocoa color and then doing navy blue and orange or red accents to incorporate items from his nursery.
4. Cappelli Women's Sun Hat
5. This Article.
My favorite quote from it.
"If you want to know why mothers — especially mothers in this country — are so batshit crazy, maybe it has something to do with the fact that we are blamed for every. god damn. thing. BY STRANGERS. Work full time? Why are you letting someone else raise your kid? Stay at home mom? Why aren’t you teaching them to be independent go-getters? Breastfeeding, formula feeding, fucking wilderness schools, grit, financial savvy, watching them all of the time, watching them none of the time, free range, Tiger Mom-ing ALL OF THE THINGS OH MY GOD INTERNET MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MINDS."
I tried not to get fired up about the gorilla thing but I can't stand people sitting behind their computers thinking they're experts on everything because they read one article on the internet. I especially cannot handle the judgment and bashing of moms ALL THE TIME. Why don't dads ever take the heat?! Why must we moms be almighty and perfect all the time?! Have you ever seen how fast a three year old is? Do you realize that kids don't actually listen to what you say most of the time, I swear if I tell mine not to do something they go right ahead and do it. I'm pretty sure most kids are that way. Sorry just my little rant for the day just had to get that off my chest and I apologize for the all the curse words ;)
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
