It's the nearly the weekend! Last Sunday Seb came down with roseola, so we've all been a bit out of sorts this week. However, now his fever's gone and the rash is starting to get a bit better, so we're on the road to recovery!
It's been awhile since I've done a post like this, so I have quite the collection of links to share with you! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet??
This is the newest Christmas song out there featuring Kristen Bell (aka Anna from Frozen). It's pretty hilarious, and I'm going to think of it every time I get a "Merry Christmas" text this year!
More than one person sent me the link to Unhappy Mothers in Western Art. Motherhood isn't always easy, but I feel like I'm handling it better than some of these mamas!
Porn for Moms of Toddlers is another link I found awhile ago but wanted to share again. I won't ever tire of hearing Don Draper say, "Did you step on a LEGO barefoot? Good thing I give an excellent foot massage."
I've just started reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler, and my book club is reading Boy Snow Bird by Helen Oyeyemi for our next meeting in January, so that's what you'll find on my nightstand over the holidays.
My cousin sent me this post called "To the mom wondering if it matters." I made the mistake of reading it at work, and it brought me to tears. Spoiler alert - It totally f*^@ing matters.
I have been LIVING in this sweatshirt lately. Paris-inspired yet super cozy. Bestillmyheart.
These booties by Sam Edleman were on sale at The Bay recently, and I really needed a new pair of black booties this winter (my last ones are 8, 9, 10 years old?? Something like that...and they haven't aged well...). Anyways, these ones are so comfortable. I also love them in the saddle colour. I found they ran slightly big if you order online.
I do as much of my Christmas shopping as possible online, so I have started placing a few orders for friends and family. However, I added the limited edition Kiss & Belle Lipsurgence Lip Set by Tarte into my shopping basket for myself. I call it elf tax. Plus Tarte Cosmetics is both eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Total guilt-free glamour.
And to make room for any other style finds you get over the holidays, Refinery 29 has a pretty good list what you can toss from your closet.
I don't normally like people telling me how to start my day, because they're usually telling me to go workout or some other nonsense like that, but this is a list I can get behind. It's from Apartment Therapy and it's 10 Things to do the First 10 Minutes of the Day. #5 is the one I need to work on.
It's no secret that I love the Rookie Mom's 52 Weekly Baby Challenges, and now I'm super pumped that they've come up with a matching list of Things to Do with your Toddler before they turn 2. Seb's 2 and a half, but I'd still do pretty much everything on this list with him.
And can someone with a baby please please please do this??? I'd love to see the picture!
