TGIF! Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is less than a week away?? I mean, 2019 is flying. 

These new Lake pajamas from their Heart Collection are our new favorites! I’m so excited that they now make kids sizes because they’re seriously so cute and comfortable! This pink and white stripe set is Lilly’s new favorite pj’s to wear!

My heart pajamas, Lilly’s pink stripe pajamas

I also wanted to share this adorably charming book by one of my most favorite artists, Janet Hill. It’s called Miss Moon: Wise Words From a Dog Governess and the story and illustrations are based on a prim & proper woman who lives on a small island off the coast of France who has 67 dogs. Seriously, so quirky and fun. Also, Janet’s 2nd book, Miss Mink: Life Lessons for a Cat Countess, just released too!

And here’s a little Valentine’s inspired round up to end our week! Everything from the perfect gift, a pretty spring wreath, to the perfect girly outfit.

The Tokens of my Love set is THE cutest. Would be so fun to keep these on hand for loved one’s birthdays through the year. Really love this little ceramic travel mug (coffee just takes better out of a ceramic vessel). And these heels, jaw drop.

Introducing the Why The Heck Not post. If we love it, I’ll do it again. But only if we love it :) 

WHY THE HECK NOT

Buy a new swimsuit in February? Why the heck not! Especially when it’s a cute as this pink and red one.

Actually get organized in your laundry room? Why the heck not! I’m all for every day items that make my life easier, and this hanging drying rack is cute!!

Buy yet another striped top? Why the heck not! This one nips in at the waist and works for both day and night.

Splurge on a statement daybed? Why the heck not! I mean, there are actually a lot of reasons not to, but you have to admit this peacock cabana daybed is pretty amazing.

But yet another pair of pajamas? Why the heck not! You know you’re going to live in these cotton striped pj’s anyway.

Wear wrist weights on your sunset walk? Why the heck not! These wrist weights comes in a lot of colors and have amazing reviews for being comfortable. They can be worn on your ankles as well.

Wear seashells on our toes? Why the heck not? These shell adorned slides are the cutest vacation sandal!

Bare a little shoulder? Why the heck not! This adorable off shoulder dress is the best way to dip your toes in the one shoulder trend!

Finally replace your door mat? Why the heck not! This navy gingham outdoor rug is great all year round and will make your mail carrier happy!

Actually order online the coffee you want instead of limiting yourself to your grocery store’s lame selection? Why the heck not! If you haven’t tried Counter Culture, what are you waiting for?

Buy your next vacation dress before you even know where you’re going (or when)? Why the heck not! This scalloped embroidered wrap dress is so amazing that it’s probably not going to be around when you do actually know!

Get a fresh pair of classic ballet flats? Why the heck not! Because chic ballet flats are always a good idea.

In partnership with Athleta. Active. Healthy. Confident.

Today is National Girls & Women in Sports Day, and to celebrate Lilly and I are partnering with our favorite activewear brand, Athleta, to share some of our favorite ways we stay active together! As a mother, it’s important to me to set a healthy, active example for my kids. I want to encourage them to be strong, both inside and out.

Lilly is using these pink toning weight balls

My kids love to try out a lot of different sports and activities, which I encourage! There are so many more options today than there were when I was growing up. Staying active not only builds a healthy lifestyle, it builds confidence, too! 

Having a small gym space in our home has definitely boosted our activity level. It’s fun to turn on some music and exercise together. Lilly loves practicing yoga, doing pilates, dancing, tumbling, cycling, lifting (light) weights, jumping rope… a wide variety of exercise keeps it interesting! And you don’t need a room dedicated solely as a gym, a small open space anywhere in your home will work.

Our pilates reformer is pretty popular in my house (we have the Balanced Body Allegro 2 Reformer). It’s my favorite way to exercise! It’s great for strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, and is really fun to use.

Taking a cool break, which rather nicely shows off Lilly’s Athleta sweatband! I love how it coordinates with her leggings.

Speaking of, Athleta’s leggings and tops are soft and stretchy – important features for kids! They’re great for all activities – both indoors and outdoors!

And I love my white crisscross hoodie! It’s thin and lightweight, but still keeps me warm.

Today, February 6th, marks the 33rd Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day! This celebration has empowered women and girls to get moving, reap the benefits of physical activity, and push past their limits both in sports and in life. Lilly & I hope you’ll join us in celebrating!

By now you’ve heard of Marie Kondo’s hit show and movement about decluttering your life, getting organized, and sparking joy. Goodness knows I need some serious organizing to happen over here. I’ve been looking at my home in a new way, focusing on items that I don’t love. Where did they come from? Why are they still here? There are some things around here that do NOT spark joy. Maybe you know the feeling? Worn out toasters? Art that is no longer your style? Dingy ceiling fans that make you cringe? Tired bedding? 

So today’s home favorites post is a round up of home swap outs! Beautiful every day pieces that will make you happy to be around. Joy sparkers!

A classic outdoor rug to bring new life to your front door or mudroom. A cute mirror to replace the morning one in your hall or powder room. It doesn’t have to be a big change.
