Weekending and Spring Outfits

Happy Tuesday! Like I mentioned on Friday, we had a busy weekend planned. We made it out to the car dealership and Matt took care of everything so that they gave me a loaner for the summer. It went really smoothly, Aida was a champ, and I even ended up with the bigger SUV with a technology package. Needless to say, I feel like a boss driving around in it.

After the dealership, we went over to the new World of Beer location and had some drinks and an afternoon snack. I can't tell you how happy I was to be reunited with pretzels and beer cheese!

The whole family had a great time at the baby shower! There was lots of delicious food, and Matt and I definitely enjoyed showing off our sweet girl.

With all of these activities going on, I've had some fun putting together spring outfits. Here's what I wore to the shower:

Both pieces are from Target--I felt like the dress needed a little more form to it, so I added the chambray top and tied it around the waist. I was quite pleased with the result!

Last night I went to a mom's night out with the ladies from the newborn moms support group. It was so much fun, and I'm so thankful I have such an awesome husband who made it easy for me to go out on my own for the night. I wore a jumpsuit that I found at Target--sadly, it's sold out, which is so unfortunate. It's a gorgeous print, and it's actually easy to nurse with it as well because the top unbuttons. (I tried to take one of those selfies while wearing this--you know the one, where you don't see the person's face, just a perfectly applied red lip, a statement watch, and the outfit. Well I reviewed them all this morning and every single one was blurry. Womp womp.)

Although the jumpsuit is sold out, there is a romper available in a similar print, plus a couple of dresses in the same print that have potential for fun outfits--they could very easily be dressed up or down. Plus, you can get 15% off clothing at Target right now with the Cartwheel app!




How do you all feel about jumpsuits/rompers? I'll admit, it took me awhile to accept them but now I can't get enough!

Friday Five

Happy Friday! For the first time in a long time, we have quite the busy weekend planned. Tomorrow, we are going to go to the dealership to get my vehicle situation figured out. There was a safety recall on my SUV, and the parts won't be available until August or September! The dealership has offered us a rental, but we're looking into other options--since we're leasing, we might be able to bump up to the latest model that isn't impacted, or go up to the bigger SUV (which wouldn't be a bad idea, considering how much stuff we packed on road trips when it was just the two of us). Hopefully we will get it straightened out so I can stop worrying about it.

On Sunday, I'm heading over to my in-law's house for a baby shower for Matt's sister--she is having baby #2, which means another bff for Aida! I'm going early to help setup, then Matt is coming by later so Aida can make an appearance.

And now, for something else I haven't done in a while--five things for Friday!

// I recently bought a jumpsuit from Target--it's similar to this one, looks like the actual one has sold out online! I can't wait to wear it to a mom's night out at a local wine bar on Monday. This is kind of a big leap for me, I'm not even much of a romper person, but the colors were gorgeous and I know it will look great with my new heels I showcased the other day.



// The other day I saw a car decal that said "your girlfriend loves my car." Dude was driving a Nissan Altima. Come on, buddy.

// Matt and I have weeded out a significant number of TV shows. For the most part, they were already shows that we had a fading interest in before she was born. On the other hand, I've taken up binge watching during the day. Some of my favorites include 30 Rock, Girls, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Fuller House (watched the entire season in one day--can you blame me?).

// It's my birthday month! I honestly have no idea what I want to do for my birthday, which is highly unusual for me--usually I have it planned out months in advance. Obviously, things are different this year and I don't really know what I want. Maybe a nap?

// We're still trying to get into a routine around here, and it ain't easy. I totally get the idea of "eat, activity, sleep," but it's difficult to achieve that when baby refuses to settle down for a nap. The one routine we have managed is I usually nurse her around 4pm, then treat myself to a beer or glass of wine and Matt takes over the next feeding with a bottle. We all do what we gotta do.

This sweet face.
Aida and I have ambitious plans to go to the new mom's support group today, followed by a trip to the mall. Follow along on snapchat (@modernkate) to see how it goes!

All Love,
