Raines has decided to become a vegetarian. I blame R&K (you know who you are), and some documentary he watched with Mike. So lunches have become trickier, which is just what you want as the school year draws to a close: a new challenge! Dear God. We’re barely hanging on here.
Raines….making feeding easy since 2008. #no
(I couldn’t even #hahano that one, it’s such a hard no. My old Denver friends will remember my pain. THEY WILL REMEMBER.)
Anyway, let’s get to it.
A fancy dress for the not-fancy. Remember my friend Linzi? She just bought this dress. It’s easy, cotton, and cool….yet looks so fancy. I’m totally obsessing over it. Hmmmm…..am I a bad friend if I buy the same one??? #nevertoooldfortwinsies?
Modcloth has 30% off swim! Our readers have raved about this retro beauty, especially for post-partum, but for the daring, this suuuuper sexy plunge suit would work, too. Also, pineapple print (with ruffles). Flirty and fun.
Speaking of swim….Hautelook has Marilyn Monroe swim on sale. I’ve never heard of this brand, but I can’t stop thinking about this striped suit or this devastatingly chic white swimsuit. Gorgeous, no? And on sale for $26. Sheesh.
Picnic better. My favorite thing for picnics in the park (or in backyards, or even on city porches)….is this table in a bag. And now it’s on sale.
Let’s redefine nude. There was an interesting discussion about my use of the word “nude” to describe something that was essentially my skin color. I can totally appreciate that we need a broader definition. So I’m thrilled that ThirdLove has just come out with a range of “naked” underwear in a ton of different….nudes. Yay for diversity. (And for keeping me honest, you guys.)
Mom Knows Best. My mom has sworn by the health benefits of dark chocolate for years. Now we all eat it for breakfast. Apparently, Dr. Oz’s Sirtfood diet agrees. Also? Red wine. Sign me up.
Are you a cool mom? I totally resonated with Michelle Peters-Jones’ article, I’m Never Going To Be a “Cool Mom” and That’s OK. She sounds plenty cool to me.
I’m coming for you, Quinoa. Refinery29 explains why Trader Joe’s is so cheap, and recommends a few affordable favs.
In case you missed this on Facebook….we love I Mom So Hard.
