The Limited at the New Tanger Outlets!


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,



YOU GUYS!  Tanger Outlets has arrived in Columbus!!  This gal and her need for a great deal have paired nicely with the greatest outlet mall to ever exist.  I headed out last week to check out the madness and boppin’ around with my gal pal, E, I was completely overtaken by the great deals to be had!

I got two dresses and a pair of earrings at The Limited for under a hundred dollars.   One of the dresses ringing in at only $30.  I mean?!

If you are even a little local, you must stop and check it out–and of course let me know what you snag!

Hope you are all having a happy week!

Seven Months!


, , , , ,

7 months!  Eleanor is all about the open mouth kisses when you say “can I have kissers?” She responds to her name and follows us from room to room.  She also learned a fun new skill, crawling up the stairs.  Obviously, babyproofing is in full force over here.  She has had lots of different fruits and veggies and only really has shown an aversion to avocado, much to my disappointment.  She’s back to sleeping 12 hours a night with a good nap in the morning and in the afternoon.  She’s probably a little over 20 pounds and she wears mostly 12-18 month clothes.

We love our little squishy!

Hope you all have a great day!

Friday Favorites!


, , , , , , , , , ,

Good morning, friends!  It’s been another great week around here.  I am sad to report that I only have one mere week left of summer break.  I am trying to stay positive as I know that this is time with my girl that not a lot of people get, including my hubby.  The little girl in me is REAL excited to bust out a new planner, new supplies, and walk into that classroom with fresh eyes and a fresh heart.  BUT, oh summer, you were swell.  I feel like I am going to miss so much, but her sitter is so awesome and I know she loves going there and that’s just another person that gets to love on her and be a part of her life.  See all the self-talk happening around here?

Anywho, let’s get to it.  I haven’t done a roundup of my favorite things in awhile so here it goes:

  1. Girl’s Striped Dress because a girl can never have too many striped numbers.  Especially for $15
  2. Toy Car Already starting to think about E’s birthday AND Christmas because they are only 4 days apart.  Yikes.
  3. Rabbit Doll  As far as baby stuff goes, I’ve tried to stay neutral in the event we have a boy someday because they use this stuff for like a week.  But she’s getting to an age where she will play with toys for awhile and she will cherish toys like this forever!
  4. Freshly Picked Moccasins The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is happening now if you are a cardholder, opens to everyone else the 22nd.  These moccs will be 41.90 during the sale!  Which is great for shoes that actually stay on!
  5. Eyebrow Primer the condition of my eyebrows is pathetic right now.  They need a little love, so I splurged on this and the…
  6. Volumizing Fiber Gel super easy to apply and I have noticed a huge difference.  Makes me feel a lot more put together.
  7. Sugar Paper Lamp Sugar Paper for Target has put out all of their new desk/school supplies and they are all just perfection.  This lamp is a mere 34.99 which for a sleek lamp, is a steal.
  8. Gold Dots and Stripes Washi Tape I go through gold washi tape the fastest (I use it on all invites and for Christmas) so two rolls for 3.99 is a great price!
  9. Oops Eraser Too cute to pass up.
  10. Rifle Paper Co. Planner Picking out my planner for the year is by far my favorite thing to do.  I can’t wait to break it open and fill it out!  I always wait until the first day of teacher work week, it gives me something to look forward to!

What are you all loving this week??

A Night at Columbus Commons!


, , , , , , ,




Good morning, friends!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Last Thursday we headed down to Columbus Commons for the free downtown live concert and had an absolute blast!  Eleanor rode the carousel, we ate at the Paddy Wagon food truck, obviously stopped by our fave ice cream, Jeni’s, and listened to some awesome bands!  We didn’t quite make it to the Spikedrivers, who came on at 9, but there were other great bands that started around 5:30!  Bar and food trucks open at 5!

If you are in Columbus, be sure to stop by!  Here is the lineup for the next three weeks!

July 14: The Floorwalkers
July 21: The Conspiracy Band
July 28: Mojoflo

…and don’t forget there is still time to enter the Little Standout Giveaway!  Winner announced Friday!
Hope you all had a great weekend!

E Snaps Pics at the Zoo + Giveaway!


, , , , , , , , , , , ,


Good morning!  We spent the happiest day at the zoo yesterday!  It was the perfect temp and we got there in time to see Nora, the baby polar bear, who is only out for about an hour in the morning!  E also got to feed the giraffes, which again, we stumbled upon at just the perfect time!  Eleanor grabbed her Camera Teether and snapped the whole day!  She’s just the best.

Speaking of the best, these teethers are amazing.  They are so so easy for her to grab and to hang onto.  Another aspect I love is that it is easy for her to hold WHILE she gums it in her mouth.  With a lot of teethers it seems to be hard to accomplish both, especially having small enough parts that she can comfortably put in her mouth at this age.  Plus, aren’t they the cutest??

I am so excited to give away a $25 credit to one reader today!  Enter through the rafflecopter below!

…and in the meantime you can snag 15% off your purchase with code paris15!

Good luck and have a great weekend, friends!
