Pax is finally wearing shoes!  For the longest time he wouldn’t wear shoes.  I’m talking months, people!  Once I put them on him he would refuse to move his feet.  He would either sit down or act as if his feet were cemented to the ground.  It kind of reminded me of a dog who hates to wear clothes.  They won’t come to you when you call them.  Instead, they just stare at you until you take them off.

Finally, my little baby coconut loves wearing shoes outside.  Woohoo!  I mean how cute are these Splendid for Stride Rite shoes?  Oh yeah, and they’re on sale!

Stride Rite has been the go-to brand for both my kids and the Splendid line is super adorbs.  These baby sneaks are super cute, cool, and shaped perfectly for little feet.  The rounded toes help prevent stumbles and falls.  I personally adore how colorful and trendy these look on my coconut’s feet!  If you’re looking for a gift for a new walker you have to buy these!

Seriously Distracted

Life throws a lot at us and finding “me” time is hard. fruitwater is encouraging women to steal more moments for themselves. It got me thinking I really don’t take time for myself. I hide out in the bathroom. Yes, it’s true. Sometimes a mama just wants to brush her teeth and scroll her Instagram in peace!

fruitwater stealing moments

Speaking of Instagram, this Seriously Distracted episode will have you rolling with laughter. James Franco followed one of the girls and hilarity ensues. What would you do if James Franco followed you?

The moral of the story? Delete all pictures that make you look basic. If you don’t, James Franco might unfollow you.

Sometimes stealing a moment for yourself could be something small. Taking a couple minutes to watch a Seriously Distracted episode gave me a chance to escape what I’m doing and enjoy the moment. It’s something small but a big part of my day. Taking a moment to savor a zero-calorie fruitwater is a tasty way to steal a moment for myself.

Like the girls from Seriously Distracted, I use social media as a way to steal more moments.
Follow fruitwater on Instagram at @fruitwaterbev and submit a photo showing the world how you make the most of your day by stealing a moment for yourself for your chance to win a $1,000 prize towards your next stolen moment! Make sure to include #stealamomentsweeps and #fruitwater in your Instagram submission.

What are your favorite ways to steal moments for yourself? Tune in Tuesdays for more Seriously Distracted episodes.

More Issues Than Vogue

 

I don’t know about you but this holiday season feels like such a whirlwind!  Is it seriously already 2015?!  Life has been so hectic but I guess that’s how life is.  There is a huge storm rolling in tonight so we are preparing for that.  I still need to go grab some backup batteries for the flashlights, fill the car with gas, and buy some extra water.  I’m curious how a wind storm out here compares to a Nor’easter.

#GIVEHAPPY This Holiday With OshKosh B’gosh

oshkosh flannel

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received an OshKosh B’gosh gift card to purchase product and to thank me for my participation.

The holidays are here which means it’s the season of giving.  OshKosh B’gosh wants you to #GIVEHAPPY this season.  #GIVEHAPPY should generate feelings of joy, happiness, and smiles.  It’s in the simple everyday moments that #GIVEHAPPY lives.  You have give hugs, smiles, fun, love, laugh, or even cookies.  I wouldn’t be mad if you decided to give me cookies.  Just saying.  

With the falling temperatures I decided to give my boys some much needed holiday clothes.  OshKosh B’gosh makes more than the overalls they’re known for.  They got kids covered from casual to dress, head to toe, and size 0-12.  Yes, they now carry up to size 12 for your kids to enjoy their favorite styles longer!  I have been dying to buy the boys some cozy flannels and I found the best styles in my local store.

My oldest adores bowties and he found the perfect one that could go with almost any button up in his closet.

The quality of OshKosh B’gosh clothing is truly outstanding.  Paxton wears Damian’s hand-me-downs and they still look like new!  I love how the clothing is age-appropriate, relatable, real, and most importantly stylish and long-lasting.

Obviously, I only purchased clothing for boys but I wish I could have bought the girl’s clothing.  I need a little girl or niece in my life.  The gorgeous sparkly dresses, soft leggings, and cozy sweaters had me drooling!  If I wasn’t done having kids I would try to have a girl just for the clothing!

The styles are so versatile.  The leggings could be worn with a long-sleeve tunic, the jean jacket could be paired with a button up, and the sweaters can go with a dress or jeans.  Everything mixes and matches so well!

 The camo triple jumper pant easily pairs with a warm pull over and hat.  I even want a pair for me!  It has a soft jersey lining, pull-on waist, and ease in the knees – just what busy boys need.

Netflix Picks

November seems to have came and went in the blink of an eye.  As the month ends it’s time to reflect.  Sure, November brings us turkey and pumpkin pie, but it also is a time when friends and family get together to celebrate great food and company.  One of my favorite ways to spend time with my loved ones is cuddle up on the couch and watch some Netflix.

As a football family, we are likely to move more times than I can count on my hands.  It is really important to me to teach him the value of each one of his friendships.  I want him to learn how to get along with someone who is different than him, appreciate differences, and building each other up.  Isn’t that what all moms want for their kids?

These are some of my favorite kid shows focusing on friendship:

netflix #streamteam november

VeggieTales in the House

Sesame Street: Elmo and Friends

The Fox and the Hound 2

Wild Kratts

 

And for mom and dad:

netflix #streamteam friendship

New Girl

Gilmore Girls

By the way, every single episode of Friends is coming to Netflix January 1st.  Yes, all ten seasons!  You better believe I wrote it in my planner.

What Netflix shows are you loving?  Are you as excited to binge on Friends as I am?
