I hope you all had a great weekend! The first week of school was exhausting for all of us, so we spent the weekend catching up on all things from sleep to laundry and work. Kindergarten is a huge change for both Jackson and for us. I’m definitely getting used to a new schedule with him being home earlier (and all of us getting up earlier), but I think it’s going to get really fun once we’re used to it.
If I had a dollar for every time I said “good routine” around here, I’d be heading out and buying myself a nice pair of shoes right now. But that good routine is really what we’re striving for these days. I’m hoping to be better about my workout schedule this week and I swear I’m ALMOST caught up (and dare I say, ahead?) on both blog and client work.
I did ask Jackson to join us in today’s post, but he refused to participate. He looked pretty cute, but you’ll just have to trust me on that because he’s sitting on the patio above us watching some Transformers show that I don’t understand on his iPad.
Meanwhile, for the moment Dylan will take any excuse to get me to himself for time to run around with me and pose for a few photos. He’s becoming quite a ham these days and yells “cheese” when he sees anyone pull out a camera or phone to take a photo of him.
One of the things I love about doing Mommy Monday with our group is that we get to find out about really great brands and share them with our readers and friends. Brynn Hudson was a new-to-me brand that I really was excited to partner with. Dylan and I are equally big fans of these earrings. I like that they are really light and are a fun accent for outfits. He likes that he can yell “ball” when I wear them. I know I’m totally behind on the trend, but I really like these earrings with the stacked baubles. I think I avoided wearing them with a very little baby so that he wouldn’t pull on them, but Dylan truly doesn’t bother with any of my jewelry so it’s nice to try a few new things. You can actually get the earrings I’m wearing in a double or even a single drop, as well as a few other colors.
See how the other mamas in our Mommy Monday group are styling their Brynn Hudson pieces:
