Non-Baby Things of Late

As my Instagram account has proven, my life is much more appealing to others when I have a cute baby clogging the feed! Thanks for loving on this little girl of ours. My world these days is "all baby, all the time," but I thought I'd throw out some non-baby things of late.

These non-slip ruby slipper socks were gifted to me by my sister Christmas before last, and oh, my gosh! I think they received as many compliments in the hospital as Presley did! I was wearing them when I was admitted to the hospital, and I never got around to putting on the cozy camping socks from REI that I packed in my hospital bag. Every single person who saw my socks on delivery day chuckled and commented on them. Such a good ice breaker!

I am obsessed with Peglets. Have you heard of them? I want a set for Presley, but which one to choose? Harry Potter? Superheroes? Disney princesses? Our family? The options are endless.

Have you heard of a Dirty Dr. Pepper? Kara from Peglets told me it is Dr. Pepper with a shot or two of coconut syrup. I've been craving one for three weeks.

Movies we've seen lately include The Imitation Game (loved it!), Whiplash (ridiculously good!), Birdman (terrific), St. Vincent (funny and sweet), Into the Woods (great, if you love musicals), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (meh...), The Last Five Years (only makes sense if you already know and love the score), and Ida (terribly boring -- do not watch). Have you seen them?

I could watch HGTV's Rehab Addict all day. I wish I was a renovation bad-ass.

I'm really fascinated by essential oils. I follow a handful of natural living blogs and Instagram accounts, but truth be told, I don't even know where to start. Do you have any recommendations for starter kits?

I can't get enough of Earth Balance's coconut peanut butter.

A new website called Bloggish launched last week. Have you heard of it? Basically, it's the easiest way to find new blogs within a certain category/type that you're looking for. Check it out! You may see a familiar face in the crowd. :)

I'm a bridesmaid in a Maui wedding in August, so I've been dreaming of swimsuits. I love the simple fringe flair of THIS one, and just in case I don't have my pre-baby body back, I like THIS one too.

Okay. That's all. Happy Sunday!

Those are cute socks :-)

we're firm skeptics - turned - believers with EO's. I recommed the Young Living premium starter kit. It's a great deal and gives you a lot of the basic oils. Feel free to text me if you need help ordering or have questions :-)
