Reentry from vacation is hard. Especially when the holidays are over and it’s January and everything seems gray. January is my least favorite month of the year. After the fun of the holidays, January seems to drag on and on.Vacation helped ease that a little bit. There are so many things I want to share about our trip to Aruba and why it really is awesome, as Jackson likes to say. Later this week I will be sharing more about our trip to Aruba. If you want a sneak peek, head over to Instagram and see some of the pictures I posted last week.
Speaking of Instagram I’ve had a lot of questions about the shoes Grace is wearing in two of the pictures I shared last week. The cozy little pink booties, that she’s rocking are from Baby Bobux and they are the Pink Slink Skin soft soled shoes. I was sent the shoes to check out and not only do I love how they look but they keep her toes so warm that I don’t have to worry about putting socks on her and best of all, she doesn’t pull them off. These are the first shoes I’ve had that she keeps on her feet. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
For Christmas I got a Ninja Coffee Bar System and I’m just a little obsessed with it. It makes a great cup of coffee and a really good latte. So much that I’m not even tempted to stop at Starbucks. (affiliate link)
I’ve finally got to a place with parenting two kids where I can cook dinner without having to worry too much about Grace needing something. After 9 months it feels like we have a good routine and I can get back to regular cooking again. This week I made chicken parm and it’s one of the meals that I know I make well. I can’t wait to share the recipe with you but I hated the pictures I took, which means I need to make it again this week…not that I’m complaining. What have you made lately that you’ve loved, I’m looking to change-up our go-to meals.
January might not be my favorite month but it’s the perfect one for turning on the fireplace and watching TV. I’ve been enjoying This Is Us, the return of Nashville and of course The Bachelor. If there are any new shows I’m missing out on let me know.
Don’t forget to check back on Tuesday for our new Travel Tuesday series on traveling with kids.
