Thoughts for Thursday: Life Lately

First off I would like to welcome Owen from Davis Duo as a new Thoughts for Thursday host!!  We are so excited to have her join us, so make sure to follow along because she has the most adorable family and is recapping her drool worthy trip to Grand Cayman today on the blog!

It's been awhile since I did a life lately post. So I figured I would pop in to tell you all what we've been up to.  Honestly it's nothing that exciting, but you all seem to like these posts ;)

We've been getting some snow here lately.  No big snowstorms but enough snow to keep the kids excited and happy!  The local schools have been closed a few times but my boys preschool pretty much never closes for snow, so we've been trucking through those school days despite the snow.

I picked up the Ninja blender after Christmas on sale at Target! We haven't had a blender in about a year so I'm so happy to have one again. We had the original Ninja which was about 10 years old and this one is about 100x better. I'm hoping I can convince the kids to try one soon.  I just ordered this Amazing Grass Kids Superfood in chocolate to see if the kids will drink a milkshake :)

I also ordered this acrylic makeup organizer from Amazon.  It arrives today so I promise to give a full review and share details once I have it organized. I had been eyeing the GLAMbox ones and the Container Store ones but the price of this one just made so much more sense.

I've been playing around with my new DSLR camera and trying to get used to using it.  So far I haven't left auto mode ;). I let Matthew play with my old point and shoot and he's having so much fun being a photographer with mommy.  His pictures aren't too bad for a 3 year old ;)

I have been living in this LL Bean pullover lately! I don't normally gravitate towards this olive green color but decided to try something different and I'm so happy I did.  It's the perfect winter color with jeans and Uggs too.  I think the olive green is sold out but the gray, navy and cream are in stock! 

Thursday are our days off, meaning neither of the kids have school or activities so we usually end up doing a lazy pajama day.  As much as I love having activities with the kids sometimes I really enjoy these lazy winter days.

  1. Jealous of your Ninja! Let us know if the boys like the chocolate 'milkshake'. Bennett loves smoothies, but recently I can't get Camden to drink them! And you will love the acrylic make up organizer! I have the same one and it is so nice to be able to see all your make up!

  2. How precious are your boys in the snow!? We got straight ice last night, no fun. So excited to be hosting with you! Xo

  3. You have a lovely blog! I am so jealous of you Americans with all this snow! Europafox x
