Five on Friday

I'm so excited to get back to these posts. They are some of my favorite :) This week we've been going a little stir crazy stuck inside because of the frigid cold outside. Please weather, warm up soon! On to the 5!

My mom has been into this whole oil craze, me, not so much, but I have been using them a little and we even got a diffuser in our room that we use every night for different things. My mom got me this little kit the other day and its really fun to play with. I really love the lemon one right now for a good mood booster and I just love the smell so much. Harper loves them to and she always picks "the purple one" :) What are some of your favorite combos and ways to use oils?! I'm a newbie, help!

Harps and I ventured to Barnes & Nobles today and I fell in love with this beautiful Cinderella book. The illustrations were so magical and dreamy I could not stop thinking about how excited I am to see the new movie coming out next month! I have decided that will be the first movie we take Harper too.  It might be a little too old for her because its not a cartoon but she is princess smitten and she even repeatedly watches the princess diaries on netflix which is not cartoony at all and she loves it! 

H is still loving her Just Like Mommy Cosmetics makeup! We play with it at least everyday and it keeps her sweet little fingers out of all my makeup which is great! hehe. 

I have been OBSESSED with the show Scandal!! Anyone else?! With business being so slow right now I have a lot of downtime at night so I have been binge watching on Netflix almost every night for the last two weeks! The last two nights I stayed up past 1 a.m. because I couldn't look away!! It is sooo damn good!! 

It is always a good day for a cupcake!! :)

Happy Weekend!

Life Lately/ Camera Roll

The last couple weeks have been absolutely amazing! A few small hiccups (like a stomach bug) but nothing that has really slowed us down! I mentioned this a touch in my last post but we finally bought a new car! We have been planning for this for probably 2 years now so its a huge deal for us. We got a 2013 Hyundai Elantra in drum roll, sparkly gold!! hehe. Kidding kidding, Nick picked out the color and I was so happy it actually does look gold so I'm feeling pretty cool. ;) We have both had really old crappy cars so now we have a great reliable family car that has just made our lives so much easier! We are very thankful. We have been trying to do as much fun stuff with Harps as possible lately. Once spring hits for me, our life is going to be a little chaotic with work and weddings so I am trying to spoil the crap out of her right now and spend every second doing everything possible to make her feel like the princess she is! It might be guilt of being busy but oh well, she is happy healthy and just the best, and yeah, spoiled. Speaking of healthy, she had a stomach bug over the weekend. It was scary and gross but other than throwing up one night really bad and the day after at Target (yeah that was gross and sad and I hope that never happens again) she has acted totally fine! Its been two days since any pukes so I think were in the clear?! Fingers crossed! (ps- I posted a photo and what happened at Target on IG and of course one person had to write a snarky comment about how I shouldn't have taken her out of the house... Ha. Thanks lady. You don't need to tell me what I should and shouldn't do with my child. Maybe we should have stayed home but I didn't know at the time that I still had a sick kid on my hands. She's had no other symptoms of anything until her episode at Target so yeah, shut it! Sorry for the rant and I know that is the nature of putting my life out there but are those comments really necessary?! fuck no! If you don't have anything nice or positive to say, don't say anything at all! Even my girl knows that! Sheesh.) 
We have another busy week planned and of course it is freezing here! No snow but just so cold you don't want to do anything but stay in and eat. hah! And with that, were off to the gym!

Making valentines day treats for dance class.
She was bored of car shopping... Who knew it took 4 hours to buy a car ugh.
My "we just bought a car" selfie! I look a little scurred. haha

Pre v-day dinner with Daddy! It was over 50 degrees and the snow was still melting! It felt  hot that day! ;)

Errands with Mommy in the new ride!
Daddy bought us roses and chocolate for v-day! He is the sweetest!!
Sunday Donuts and grocery shopping!

We took H to build a bear because well we wanted to! She picked out princess Celestia and she loves her!! 

The morning after her bad sickie night :( We stayed home and relaxed and she was fine that whole day. I don't know what was going on :(

See, back to her normal self by Saturday (so I thought...)

Minutes before the puke explosion in the middle of the aisle at Target. Yes it was everywhere. This adorable dress is now in the trash and good thing she had her rain boots on because, just because! I had to buy her a new outfit to ride home in even. Poor baby :(

Sweet girl begged for nails all weekend. She was one happy girl!

Showing off her new princess nails!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I couldn't be more in love with, everything!!! My baby, my man, my family, my career, my friends, etc., my life!!! I am really feeling so blessed and so loved! We celebrated V-day a day early with Daddy because he has to work today but we had a breakfast just the two of us and then while I got a haircut he took Harper on a sweet cupcake date and then we went to dinner later and just had a wonderful family day! Oh yeah, and we got a new car!!! Ah! We are beyond excited and we still keep thinking we have to give it back because this has been something we have been working towards for years now! We are so happy to be able to have an awesome new reliable car that we can get around in. Valentines Day has always been a good one for us. Three years ago we found out Harper was a girl on Valentine's Day so it is forever in my heart a very special day for us.
Happy LOVE day friends!!! xoxoxo

Weekend Recap

I feel like these are the only posts I do, eek, BUT, I am going to try and be better this week! 
I was looking through my blog at posts from last year and it was amazing reading about Harps a year ago and it took me right back to those moments. Its exactly why I wanted to start blogging and it just lit a fire in me to really start documenting more on here and maybe step out of my comfort zone and start talking about my fitness goals, more fashion, more photography, more Harper (obvi), more food., etc. Just more. I hope no one minds if this blog becomes more about everything in our life than just Harper girl. I mean, I know it is all about her, but, you know what I mean! ;)

We were stuck inside with a snow week so even a glimpse outside was a big deal! Luckily, its almost all melted already and we are hoping for warmer temps.

I am so excited that Harper has become a brand rep for Just Like Mommy Cosmetics. They sell awesome pretend "makeup" but the amazing part is that no colors come off! I was skeptical at first because Harps is a smart cookie but she actually adores it so much and plays with it all the time and even does my makeup and never seems to wonder why there is no color. Lol. It's a great activity for all those girly girl toddlers out there!!

We decided Harper needed a extra fun day on Friday so after school we took her to BounceU,  a giant bounce house play area thing (hah) and she was in heaven! We have been there once before and this time she could navigate and get around all the jumpers so much better it was crazy. She really loved it and so did we because it was an extra cardio workout for mommy and daddy chasing her around! ;)

I then took her to get her nails done while I got a pedicure. She sat next to me in the fancy chair and picked out her own sparkly pink polish! The sweet ladies were so nice to her and she was so good at sitting still. Funny story: The lady that was painting her nails kept talking to her and calling her "baby" and she kept turing back to me and saying, "What she saying?!" ;) O M G everyone was dying laughing!! I was a little nervous at first that the sweet nail techs would think she was rude but they were totally awesome and were laughing along too and trying to get her to say it more and more, haha!! Kids are so dang funny!!
