Carter’s Little Baby Basics Collection

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As most of you know, Carter’s is a top mom’s go-to brands. You are guaranteed to find something for your child, and at an awesome price. Recently I was introduced to their Little Baby Basic collection, which I had to grab a few things for Remi from! This line is filled with cute, comfortable pieces perfect for babies from preemie to 24 months.

I’ve always love Carter’s onesies, I personally think they fit the best out of any others. They are not as wide as others, and longer, therefore they can be worn for a longer period of time! Which is great. Another thing I always, always get from Carter’s is their sleepers. I love them so much. They come in cute designs, and I love that a lot of pieces you can just keep on them all day long and still look fairly put together, haha, because #momlife. Sometimes you just wear jammies all day, and sometimes that is more often than not!

Weekend Getaway to Midway, Utah

It has been too long you guys! And for that, I’m sorry. We have been so busy the last month or so, and things just get away from me. We have been having fun, though! One of the fun things we did was visit Zermatt Resort in Midway, UT. We have been there twice in the past 3 months, and Saylor asks to go back to the indoor pool just about everyday. (Yes, they have an indoor pool and it is awesome.)

The Zermatt Resort is designed like a traditional Swiss-style, actually a lot of Midway is. I don’t know anything about Midway, but it is such a cute little town. It is close to Park City, and sits in the most beautiful valley. There is a popular crater there too, that you can go swimming and diving in. It is naturally warm and I hear it is awesome.

Spring is in the Air…

…and I am feeling it! As each season comes and goes here in Utah, I am learning how bipolar the weather here is! One day it will be 65-70 and gorgeous, and the next it will be 30 degrees cooler and snow! Not even kidding you, it is crazy! Everyone here complains about the snow, but this California girl loves it! It helps that it typically all melts the same day, I will admit! It is just so nice to live in such a beautiful place, that has all different seasons!

  

My little sister, who is about 6 years younger than me, is the cutest thing ever and I always ask her opinion on clothes and makeup and pretty much anything. Our styles are pretty different, but she bought one of these hats a while back and I wondered if I could pull it off. When Troy and I went to Vegas a few weekends ago I saw a cute, simple black one at TopShop and decided to get it. I have only worn it one time, but I think it is cute! Same with these platform shoes…totally out of my comfort zone, but they are rose gold and very comfortable! And they aren’t too high, so I can actually still walk in them, haha!

10 Month Old Remi Rowe

Can you believe it, 10 months old?! I sure can’t. I still feel like she is so baby-ish and little, and I love that. I want to soak in as much cuddles and nursing and loves as long as I can. She has grown so much this last month or so, and I’m really noticing it. She is still a tiny thing, which is one of the reasons why she still seems so much like a baby to me. She has 4 teeth, the 2 bottom and her 2 “i” teeth on top (her fangs) which is so funny! I never want to forget that. She’s like a little vampire and it’s so cute.

Spring Favorites & Wish List

My wardrobe has been SERIOUSLY lacking lately, so I have been doing a lot of (window) shopping. I want to throw all my clothes away and start fresh. Does anyone else feel that way? Is it the change in fashion, the season change, or do my clothes just suck? Or all of the above. While going through my closet I have found that I hold on to things, for who knows why. I guess I tell myself that I will wear it one of these days, and with many things, that day never comes. My new rule is if I haven’t worn it in the last year, it needs to go. I have been selling on Poshmark lately, and have really liked it. It is super easy.

Bookroo Subscription

If I remember correctly, I have talked about the company Bookroo before. When Saylor was younger, I had gotten the Board Book Box which comes with 3 books. They were perfect for her when she was little, when she enjoyed looking at the bright colors and pictures. Now that she is older and starting to read a little bit, I wanted to get her some books geared towards older kids.

     

Each month Saylor gets a cute package of 2 wrapped books. And I mean literally, wrapped! She loves it so much because she feels like she is really getting something special. I love that their company takes the time to make things special for the kids. It also comes with a little card, telling a bit about the books of the month.

When Sisters Become Friends

  • This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

As the oldest of 3 girls, I grew up with 2 built in best friends. I won’t go into the details of the road we took to become friends (sorry, mom!), but we are the best of friends now & I love that my girls have the opportunity to develop that. It is amazing to see the connection they have, even from such a young age. Saylor is so motherly toward Remi, always wanting to help her and keep her away from her toys, haha!

     

Ever since before Saylor was born, Carter’s was our go to choice for clothing. They carry the cutest prints and styles, are affordable & have good sales, and their sizing runs more true to size than other baby/children’s clothes. I saved a lot of Saylor’s clothes for Remi, and as Remi grows, the nostalgia I feel when I go through her old clothes is bittersweet. I love that my girls can share the same clothes, and that they both can create memories in little outfits.

Learning to Relax & Take Care of Myself

Thank you iHerb for sponsoring this post!

Does anyone else have a hard time relaxing and taking time for yourself? I know I do! Of course I love to relax and pamper myself, but sometimes being a mom to 2 busy little girls impedes that. There are days that are so stressful and long, that I will literally force myself to take a bath or do a face mask…something that simply takes 10 minutes but is a sure way to elevate my spirits and make me feel relaxed.

    

iHerb carries about 1,200 brands and over 35,000 products that you would typically find at health food stores and natural pharmacies, and their prices are much more affordable. Shopping with them is easy breezy, and all orders in the US over $20 ship free. They also ship to over 160 countries and have customer support available in 10 languages…now that is really cool.

Shape Mags with Say

I was recently introduced to the coolest toy and had to share with you. The company is Shapemags, and they make magnetic tiles in different shapes and colors. These toys allow creativity while making learning fun. I also love that it is something any age can play with and learn something…whether it is colors and shapes, or using their imagination more to see what they can build!

 

Our set of Shapemags came in a nice box, all organized and ready to play with. Saylor started playing with them immediately, and we currently have 3 different piles of her projects around the house. I had no idea she would be so into building things! Her set also came with a set of stilemags, which connect to the face of the tiles and are so fun! They come in numbers and letters, as well as images to use while building your creations!

Family Photo Updates

We were so overdue for some new family photos, so we recently went to Camera Shy Photography in Lehi. If you live in Utah, you are probably familiar with them, as they have many locations. I had heard good things about them, and was excited to give them a try! Remi is finally sitting unassisted, and we can get her to smile (sometimes), so I thought now would be a good time to get some family pictures taken!

    

Saylor is 4.5 and as sassy as ever. Literally. She has SO much personality and I don’t know where she gets it. Okay, actually I do. Her dad, LOL. She is so funny and she keeps us laughing all day long. She is learning so much in preschool this year…she is starting to read and it is so much fun watching her learn. She is a great big sister and helps me a lot with Remi. She loves “egg mcmuffins”, yogurt, and basically any treats. She is still tiny for her age somehow, but I like her that way. She says that she wants to be a princess when she grows up, actually the tooth fairy, and her favorite thing to do is play with her friends and go to the park. She has a terrible habit of picking her fingernails, and is very particular about her hair, and loves wearing bright pink eyeshadow.
