You Know You're a Mom...Favorites

The other day when I was leaving Adventure Island, I saw this lady carrying a Lilly Pulitzer cooler. It wasn't just a cooler, it carried her towel, wallet, and anything else she would need while she was there. Before Bennett, I would have had a cute beach bag that would have fit my essentials--a magazine, towel, and sunscreen. Now there is so much I need that I need a small carry on bag in order to get it all in. I picked this up at Dillard's the other night and am already in love. I can't wait to try it out! This will be perfect for any outing we go on. 

There are those day that you just have to get out of the house. Monday, was one of them. After Bennett woke up from his morning nap, we ventured out to Babies R Us. While walking around the store, I came across this lotion. I'm all for "wearing those stripes", but if they can go away I'm not going to not try. So far I am loving this lotion, careful can make the floor really slippery. 

I actually asked for this a few years ago for Christmas, or some type of holiday. Now that I have Bennett, I use this daily. It converts to a hand held or can be used as a stick vacuum. When you are done you put back on the charging station. Super easy and cleans up even the biggest things like cheerios. 

Now that Bennett eats breakfast in the morning, I don't really go out for coffee. I actually never should have...but hey, we all learn from our mistakes. Anyways, I generally drink a cup of coffee in the morning with my breakfast and if I go out later in the day I grab a cup of coffee from somewhere Starbucks. 

I am having so much fun thinking pinning such cute budget friendly crafts for dad. I did one the other day with Bennett's friend, and it turned out to be super cute. I can't wait to do this craft this week, and share it with you all. Obviously, after we give to my hubby

What is one of your "You Know You're a Mom...Favorites"?

  1. One of my "mom favorites" is nice pajamas. In the first few months, I lived in these after my son was born. And now since my weekends are spent in them longer than before, I like to feel pretty in pajamas that are a little more coordinated and colorful. Every little extra counts!

  2. and we thank you because thinking of fathers day gift sometimes Is hard.

  3. Thanks for sharing this list, so many great things! I've never seen that spray lotion, I'm going to going to look for it. Definitely need to try it out!

  4. Hi, love the coffee cup. I dont have favorites yet as I am still single. :-D

  5. Love these !! Coffee mug definitely my favorite !! Laci @ Sequins in the South.

  6. Oh yes! Those are all fabulous and I didn't know they made spray stretch mark lotion…going on my list now!

  7. Great picks! I would love a stick vacuum like that for all those little daily clean-ups! Much better than dragging my big heavy one upstairs every time. :)

  8. yes... these...

    i think i would add headbands. i mean, it's hard to look like you're not donning the "mom uniform" but i will throw a headband on in a sec to dress my hair up!
