Gosh you guys, I can’t even tell you how much I loved reading your comments on yesterday’s post. It was really comforting to hear that I’m not the only one that has mommy amnesia!
I had so many random topics bouncing around my head this morning so I decided could bring them all together by numbering them. Because that makes for a coherent post, right? Sure, let’s just go with that…
Keeping up with growing kids is tough. One day Hailey has a closet full of clothes and the next, not a single thing fits her… like not one single thing. So this past week I stocked up on a few items through ThredUP. If you haven’t tried this online consignment yet, you should. The prices are great and they always thoroughly check for quality. I’ve bought a Kate Spade wallet for myself, as well as clothes for the girls… where it’s tempting to mark brand: Hanna Andersson and just shop from there…
I also snagged a few well-priced new items including these Target rash guard bathing suit sets and these Old Navy swimsuits. The girls are in swim lessons every week and new suits were needed. Plus we just booked a family vacation that I’m PUMPED about, so bring on the rash guards!
Also, yes, I am pushing for another year of matching… I’ve officially become that mom.
Kaitlyn’s tutu — she is obsessed with it and twirls whenever she puts it on.
Finally I snagged a couple of these Henley Tee Dresses that I wish came in every color of the rainbow. They are perfect dresses for everyday play wear and they look so sweet on the girls. Plus, the price is right!
Let’s talk food! I was feeling the need to switch things up this week and tried Jen’s Pad Thai recipe.

Holy smokes you guys, it is delicious and came together more quickly than I anticipated! Not that I’m surprised, as I can always count of Jen’s recipes being great. I highly suggest putting it on your must try list.
I picked up these Dorot frozen cubes from Whole Foods and I’m in love!
I always end up with leftover ginger going bad after I use the little I need for a recipe, but these frozen cubes mean I can keep fresh herbs and spices ready to go in my freezer. Each cube is equal to 1 tsp. Aren’t these cool?!
A few helpful links!

6 Tips for Finding Balance as a Work at Home Mom by Amber at Mommy’s Me Time. Honestly it’s still challenging for me to refer to my blog as work since I love it so much that it feels like a fun hobby. However, it is work (just with a positive connotation!) and I found these tips helpful,
