Our Weekend Recap and a COUPON!

You guys!  It's already Monday again!  We had a pretty full weekend, but managed to squeeze in some fun family time.  The weather is changing, so we've been trying to get the girls outside whenever it's not raining.  Eric had a big meeting on Friday afternoon and surprised us by coming home early as soon as the meeting was over.  We packed up and took the girls to the park.  I sat on a blanket listening to Phayre Coo and watching Eric and Sloan play on the big play structure.

I thought to myself, "How I am this blessed?!  Look at my incredible husband and our beautiful daughters.  I wish I could freeze time and stay in this moment forever."  And then Eric gave me the look... That look where he's panicked or flustered and I think he might just run away.  He picked Sloan up and started walking towards me, which made Sloan completely lose her shit because she thought she had to leave the park.  As he walked up to me, screaming and flailing toddler in hand, I asked him what was wrong.  With a straight face he said, "Did you remember to put underwear on Sloan today?  Because she just went down the slide and flashed the entire park."  Well shit! Obviously I forgot and the girl likes being naked so much she never tells me!  <insert the emoji where the monkey is covering his face>. Because I'm not the absolute worst mother in the world, I at least had extra clothes in the diaper bag.  So I put some panties on Sloan and calmed her down with some yogurt covered raisins (sugar fixes everything-or alcohol, but I stick to sugar with the kids).  Crisis averted and we went on to enjoy the rest of our park date.

I seriously feel like taking a newborn and a toddler out in public, is like traveling with a circus, but you don't know what the circus acts are.  It's a surprise every time you leave the house!  Although the acts almost always need a set of clothes at the end.  I look at these moments as my way of earning a glass of wine though :).  After our park outing, we went to our neighbors house for pizza and I got to enjoy a nice cold glass of rosè, perfect start to the weekend!

Here are a few photos from our park trip:

And because all circuses travel, we also took our little circus to the mall.  Everyone wore underwear and it was actually a pretty successful trip.  Outside of Sloan tackling another little girl at the disney store for touching "her" Minnie tea set, there weren't too many incidences.  I caught the other little girl on their way to the ground and then we got the hell out of there in a flash so it hardly seemed like an incidence.  

I picked up a few new fall favorites and thought I'd share...

Gap is having their friends and family event (you can save 40% online with code FFBEST or save 50% off five regular priced items in store with code FFBEST50 through today 11/9).  I picked up the cutest "Oh Deer" sweatshirt for Sloan, these candy cane striped tights for Phayre, and the cutest cable knit cardigan EVER for me (seriously it is so flattering).

Nordstrom is having their fall sale and I picked up a few things there as well!  These over the knee boots are only $64!  And the striped top I wore to the park is only $18 (I seriously live in this top-I recommend sizing up one size).

Sloan is obsessed with nightgowns so I was really excited to find this plaid ruffle nightgown at Gymboree (on sale for 40% off)!  You can see the rest of my holiday pajama favorites here!
