I LOVE when I read the Birchbox Blog and stumble upon a familiar face! Check out this great before and after brow pencil tutorial.
They also did a great post on 7 New Mom Essentials for Kate Middleton. I have to say, right after Little B was born, I had a new love and appreciation for fancy cosmetics (as if I didn’t already have one pre-baby!) When you’re tired and feel gross, a little fancy shower gel and some luminizing powder can be just the ticket!
On Monday, I was hurting for dinner ideas, so I called in reinforcements. Here are some recipes they shared. (Note: instead of making a yummy dinner, we caved and went to Outback for a free bloomin’ onion–who can compete with that?!)
I can’t wait to try these Quinoa Black Bean Corn Tacos.
And you can never go wrong with hamburgers and sweet potato fries–yum!
And now, some favorites from Little B:
Little B turned six months this week! Can you believe it?! Time is flying! Some of his latest favorites include sitting in the bath tub and splashing for 30 minutes each night, reading Llama Llama books again and again, and food–any and all kinds of food–he loves plums, graham crackers, and applesauce. So far the only thing he hasn’t liked has been cauliflower, but who can blame him?!
|Just trying out some prunes.|
He has a few favorite toys, but one that we LOVE is this Haba toy. I thought it was an angel, but apparently, Amazon calls it a beetle. It’s great for chewing, playing, and hanging on his car seat for road trips. I really like finding quality, multi-purpose toys, and this one is a keeper!
Life is full with our smiley baby boy and we are loving it!!
