Our Weekend...


I hope y'all had a great weekend! It's a bagillion degrees here right now and I will fully admit that getting through the summer with a pregnant belly and 20 extra lbs of weight on your frame isn't as fun as it looks (no, really).

My ribs have been hurting again (they did the last time too) and I'm uncomfortable pretty much daily. It started much earlier this time around, just like everyone told me it would. Nevertheless, I'm thankful for this sweet babe, but please can it just get a little cooler outside?

Harper has been quite the sweetie lately. She will suddenly say "I need hugs" or "I need cuddles" and I'm always more than happy to oblige.
 Speaking of being sweet, Harper got a super sweet delivery on Friday of a beautiful romper from Shop Stork. How precious are those three little ice cream cones? 

Shop Stork has generously offered a 20% off code for my readers too--- just enter VERONIKASBLUSHING at checkout through July 31st! It's also free shipping in the U.S. (yay!)
 They also sent some super cute items for baby boy -- a Beau Loves onesie and KiraKids leggings. Love all of the online shops I'm seeing carrying fun, trendy and different boy clothes!
Harper wore her new romper and a LouLou & Company bow headband to her friend Margot's second birthday party on Saturday. It was so much fun and my friend did an amazing job hand-making the decor. It was the sweetest little fiesta theme.

Saturday night I celebrated Candice's birthday with friends. A group of us had dinner at SaltAir Seafood Kitchen and they brought out a massive cotton candy dessert with a sparkler after we ate our meals. Yes please!
Today we enjoyed a train-themed birthday party at Little Gym celebrating Harper's friend Tyler (Happy second birthday little guy!) and then after nap time we all hung out with Candice and went out for dinner together. Harper had a blast exploring Candice's house and playing with her wooden tea set.
 And before I go, I'll remind you that Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is nearly ending and you can still pick up this beautiful Kate Spade wallet at the discounted price. I've been loving mine!

Coming up on the blog this week, I have a fun review of a subscription service I recently got to try out…stay tuned for this look and a few others!

Monday Mints

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!

When I was getting ready for work this morning I put on this pair of Kendra Scott earrings and the rest of this minty outfit followed.

I wore my gap shirt dress with mint green Kate Spade flats and a faux calf hair leopard print belt. It was literally 100 degrees outside today and just the walk to and from my car was sweat-inducing. There's simply nothing more comfortable than a cotton dress on a day like this.

I also have to mention this adorable crib sheet sent to me by Madly Wish. I just love their whimsical prints and patterns and the quality is top-notch. The color combo of this sheet really adds a fun pop of brightness to her nursery. You can check out their full collection of baby items here.

Have a great week!

Our Weekend...

Happy Sunday! We had a new little friend join our family this weekend--- well, maybe he's not so little. 

We originally ordered it for baby boy, but as soon as it came, Harper declared it hers and the kisses and hugs were endless. The conversation went something like this:

"Harper, look what we got for your baby brother!"

"No mommy, that giraffe is mine."

"What about your baby brother?"

Harper walks over to her toy basket and pulls out her Sophie the giraffe squeaky toy...

"He can have this one, mommy (pauses to look at me intensely, turns and points to the giraffe) that one is mine."

Well then. I guess I should have know better than to bring a 5 ft tall giraffe into our house with a giraffe-loving toddler around.

After Harper's Little Gym class Saturday, we had a play date that was cancelled due to her friend being sick, so we decided to beat the heat by going to the mall. I hate the mall more than anything on a Saturday, but it has a Disney store and if you follow me on Snapchat, you saw Harper's delight at seeing "Elsa" figure skate to "Let it Go" on the Galleria's rink. Perfect timing! And let's be real, I also had my eye on a special something with a sweet little bow from Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale that I didn't pull the trigger on last week. She's mine now:

Someone on IG asked me to post what the inside was like since I mentioned it has a ton of card slots, which is the main reason I purchased it. I have a ton of gift cards (plus other cards like my debit card, health insurance, driver's license, etc). I get a lot of gift cards for holidays and special occasions and I always end up hoarding them together in a separate little zip wallet and forgetting all about them. I wanted something that had enough slots to where I can keep them all in one place. The wallet also has a zip pocket in the back where I have more gift cards stored. 

And speaking of gift cards, I'm a total weirdo about them. I always save them because I want to make sure I buy something special with them…but then I end up looking back a year later and realize I haven't used them. So I'm trying to get better at that...
How cute is this gold bamboo mirror that came in last week? It's currently on sale for $99 and it's great quality. I'm a teeny bit obsessed with bamboo right now. I've had these bar stools on my wish list for quite some time...

Modern Burlap is a shop I discovered on IG and I can't rave enough about their swaddle blankets. I love the simple black and white designs. They're a little on the pricier side, but they're super big and I like that they don't have typical "baby" prints on them like baby ducks or elephants. Plus, you can use swaddle blankets for so many purposes- as a nursing cover or car seat cover and a blanket for an older child. Harper still sleeps with her Aiden & Anais swaddle blankets in the summer since they're so lightweight and breathable. The Modern Burlap ones are made of 100% organic cotton and are totally unisex.
Saturday night, we celebrated National Ice Cream Day 24 hours early and went out for some good ol' marble slab. I get their birthday cake ice cream with double cookie dough and it's pretty much like heaven in a cup…and I'm not just saying that because I'm pregnant. I'm just as rabid for it anytime of year. 
Today we went to the pool again with my in-laws which is always our favorite thing to do on a Sunday. It's fun and relaxing and lets us beat the heat. I wore a scarf as a cover-up today which I also did when we were in the Bahamas last fall. It's such a fun way to use a scarf and in this heat, it's lightweight and so easy to take on and off. You can also tie it around your waist just to cover your bottom half.

We bought Harper a new puddle jumper because we could not for the life of us find the one we got her for the Bahamas anywhere. She loved "swimming" and kicking around in the pool!
We left the pool, took long naps and just enjoyed some quiet family time at home after dinner. The perfect end to a Sunday!
 Hope your weekend was great!


If you popped over to my IG earlier today, you already saw this, but I wanted to share this top here for those who haven't seen.

It's part of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale which is open to the public today! At just $21.90 It's a total steal (regularly $34). It's super long, flowy and perfect for hot summer days. The crochet trim is on point. It's just fantastic. So much so that I think I'll check it out in some of the other colors too!

I'm wearing a medium, but I would have gotten a small had it not been for the bump, so I recommend ordering your regular size since the length is generous on this top.

Happy Friday and happy shopping!
