o happy friday!! the very last friday before christmas!! On one hand im so excited for christmas to come i can hardly stand it but on the other i want to take some more time to enjoy the season, relax, and cozy up next to the christmas tree. Maybe we’ll just rock our christmas lights and christmas tree well into February?
The Wet Brush . Anyone with a little girl NEEDS THIS BRUSH. I can’t even begin to sings its praises loud enough. I swear even with some kick-ass detangler we still got tears every night. . . until the wet brush entered our lives. I even steal it from lex every morning to use on my hair when i get out of the shower. I don’t know what exactly it’s magic powers are- probably something to do with the spacing and size of the pins, i dont even care. i just straight up love this brush.
SHARED PHOTO STREAMS. Ok i’m about to get a little tech-geeky up in here. Anyone with an iphone needs to be using their shared photo streams. You can have up to 10- and each can hold up to something crazy like 5,000 pictures. They act as the perfect back-up from all those precious iphone pictures AND let you share pictures with your friends and family. The only downfall is that you have to manually add pictures to your stream- but if you make a habit of it i swear you wont regret it! We used it a LOT while in new york- so the boys back home could see what we were up to. Plus it cut back on me having to email or text everyone their pictures. I just threw them in the stream and everyone could save, use, and adore the pictures. Get on board with this people. Its a gem of product, totally free, and way better than relying on the cloud and your own photo stream to keep everything safe in case of a major iphone meltdown.
IG DIRECT. oh yes, another handy dandy iphone thingy i dont know how i lived without. Its like snapchat on instagram that allows you to judge the picture for longer than 7 seconds. My poor friends are now all subject to my “selfies” (which usually revolve around me eating food)- but i’m pretty sure it just makes them love me more.
MophieIve had iphone battery issues for awhile now. I swear i charge my phone up to 3x a day (and i dont feel like i use it THAT much). While in New York i knew i was going to encounter major battery issues. Enter the mophie. It’s a sleek case that gives your phone an extra charge while on the go. It was SO handy. and definitely ensured that i was able to facetime any time with lex and mike back home. Ive kept it on my phone since, and i’m not so overly paranoid and obsessive over my battery power anymore!
TUCKER. I swear we have one of the cutest doodles ever. We’re straight up obsessed with this guy over here- and sadly hes one sick pup. The only problem is no one knows what’s wrong with him! We took him in 6 weeks ago for extreme itching- and since then we’ve encountered issues with this sweet pup. He’s running a temp of 103, yet all his tests come back normal. The next step is to whisk him off to a doggie dermatologist, and a doggie internal medicine doc to see if they can help. And we get to take his temp 2x a day. . . rectally. Which is just plain uncomfortable for both of us.
