So, I totally meant for this week to be my come back week to blogging, but it just so didn’t happen. Other than Monday’s post, I have done nothing in blog land. No blog reading, prepping posts, really haven’t been on social media much still. I guess my social media fast is sticking with me.
I also had my first friend visit me here (more on that later) and my sister-in-law moved in with us this week. So I’ve been kinda busy! I also feel like the stage Claire is in is just requires all of my attention. I really took my social media fast to become more present as a mom and I’m definitely not going back to being less present, so I’ve just been pretty preoccupied!
Anywho, onto some favorites! I’m liking up with Heather today for Friday Favorites 🙂
Having my First Visitor in Hawaii
My friend Alicia, who I used to work with in Boston, came out for six days this and last week. I’m so thankful for a friend to make the trip out here to see me and get to see the sights.
We went to the Dole plantation (above), a couple of beaches including the North Shore, and hiked to a waterfall.
New Ocean Themed Toys for Claire
I don’t get Claire new toys very often, but when I do I have so much fun with it. How cute are these?!
I got these beach-themed books and ocean creatures puzzle for her at a local bookstore. Specifically, we got:
- Melissa & Doug Ocean Creatures Puzzle
- Ganz Mermaid plush doll
- Llama Llama Sand & Sun by Anna Dewdney
- Beach Baby Indestructible book by Kate Merritt
We certainly don’t need any more stuffed animals around here, but she happened to grab the mermaid doll on the way out, so we of course had to get that too… #momlife #wereactuallymermaids
Enough said 😉
I don’t feel I’ve truly decorated our house much yet at all, but I found these at Target and had to have them.
I bought them for our bedroom, but they may end up in the living room. We’ll see!
As I was saying earlier, I’m just so not back with it with social media and I like it. I truly love connecting with people but I feel that half the stuff I’m seeing is not connection and just noise right now if I don’t really know the person. I think I will be staying way scaled back on all-things-social for a long time if I can help it.
Also, Instagram is seriously copying SnapChat? I cannot keep up with watching so much video stuff in social media! I tried it out a few days ago but I just don’t see myself using both the Instagram stories and SnapChat now. Too much work! I do like that you can see videos from people you don’t normally see, but I follow so many people on Insta, it’s hard to keep up.
I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! I have some fun posts planned for next week. Stay tuned!
