Happy Friday and Happy May! I’m recapping my friday favorites for the first week of May: shopping for Mommy and Me Lilly Pulitzer outfits at Saybrook Home, Annabelle’s Kindergarten orientation, and my Mother’s Day gift favorites.
Mommy and Me Outfits at Saybrook Home
There is nothing I secretly love more than dressing like my daughters. I know they aren’t always going to want to be like Mommy, so I take advantage of every chance I get. This first week of May we went down to Old Saybrook to try on Lilly Pulitzer Mommy and Me outfits at Saybrook Home.
Saybrook Home is a spectacular fine furnishing, home decor, and apparel store located in Old Saybrook. If you’re local to Connecticut, visit Saybrook Home this weekend to shop Lilly Pulitzer! They’re one of the only stores in Connecticut that carries this much LP. Oh… and make sure you check out my IG stories today for my Lilly Pulitzer try-on! Don’t worry, the girls are in the videos too.
On Thursday I put on my best brave face to attend Annabelle’s Kindergarten Orientation. We can’t believe she is so close to starting big girl school… it seems like yesterday she was learning to walk.
I’m lucky I have a husband who hides his emotions well because if he had shown the smallest amount of nervousness or sadness I would’ve lost it.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I know it can be a struggle to think of not only a gift for your Mom, but for yourself too.
A Day at the Farm with my Blogger GalPals
I can’t forget to share what I did last weekend! I was invited to my friend Christine’s farm in NYC for the day along with some of my favorite local New England bloggers. We made the most gorgeous floral bouquets, stuffed our face with homemade apple cider donuts, and chatted about life. It was so wonderful to meet the girls I’ve been talking to over the internet for so long in real life. Michelle, Jen, Alicia, Christine, and Christina are all so incredibly talented and amazing – I can’t wait to see you all again soon!
Another busy week is in the books and while I’d like to say I’m excited to relax for the next two days but it’s the complete opposite. We have a lot going on in May with every weekend but this one completely booked. With that being said, there’s a lot to be done with this free time!
Tonight we are going to dinner at my best friend’s house. This is the first time she and I have lived in the same state since 2005!
