✨Jordan bought me a card that said, "Let's Stay In". I do enjoy going out, but after wrangling a crabby, tired, and sick toddler all day ordering take-out and watching The Olympics together was everything I needed.

There's a few Valentine's Day mishaps from our early dating years in my stories today. It's a miracle we've made it 13 years. 😂

✨Phoenix has croup and what I thought was pink eye, but is actually a side effect of an ear infection. 😩I had my first of many ear infections at 5 months, so I think making it 18 months without one to be pretty great.
-
Most of my plans for the next few days will be thwarted, but Jordan and I just booked two sans-Phoenix trips for the year, starting with New York City this summer! ✈️
-
Dreaming and planning trips help propel me forward through some of the yuckier parts of life. Anyone else share this idea? Also, if anyone has tips on getting an 18 month old to not spit out their meds let me know.

💕Phoenix and I spent the afternoon prepping special Valentine's Day mail to be sent to his friends. I'm not a super crafty person, but there's something so endearing about making and receiving Valentine's.
-
Phoenix doesn't yet know his mama is keeping a little treat for herself this Valentine's Day — @unreal.snacks dark chocolate peanut butter cups!
-

These are certified Vegan, Non-GMO Project Verified, and free of gluten, soy, and dairy. All made with responsibly-sourced fair trade ingredients. Good quality chocolate is often made with the simplest of ingredients.

Check out UnReal Dark chocolate at your local Whole Foods Market.

What are your Valentine's Day plans?

💕 February is dreary where I grew up, so my mom always made Valentine's Day special. And I want to carry on that tradition for Phoenix! We’ll be sending out cards to friends and sharing special treats. #sponsored
-
I can’t share all of my treats with Phoenix though! Once Phoenix is asleep Jordan and I will order take-out and enjoy a little Valentine’s date-night in capped off with my new favorite obsession — @unreal.snacks' dark chocolate peanut butter cups. -

✨Over the past few months Phoenix's love for books has really grown. He'll bring @jordandshort and I books and sit on our lap pointing at different features on the page.
-
I've found creative ways to not become bored reading the same book over and over again. 😜
-
What are some of your kids favorite books? Phoenix loves: The Little Blue Truck, Zingy, and Don Quixote (it's a bilingual picture book).

✨Raise your hand if you got 8 hours of sleep last night? 🤷‍♀️Jordan and I went on a date last night, so I'm feeling extra sleepy this morning! It’s okay because my Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream comes to my rescue — it immediately reduces puffiness and dark circles for a bright-eyed effect. #AD
-
If you missed it I have a new blog post all about the 3-Step Reset I’m taking with @Olay. I've added their cleansing cloths to my routine -- I love how it gently exfoliates.

✨ I’ve been on a skincare journey for several months and am finally experiencing results. Yay! Having acne is embarrassing, but ever since my diagnosis in October my perioral dermatitis continues to diminish.
-
After the indulgence of the holidays my routine needed something more. There’s a new blog post up all about the reset process I am taking with Olay's 3-Step Reset.
-
The steps are simple, but effective and I’m already seeing results particularly by adding @Olay’s Daily Facial 5-in-1 cleansing cloths into my routine. -

✨18 months and full of life! So full of life his curiosity messed up my freshly pedicured toes. 😂
✨The parenting question I'm asked the most is how I've found our babysitters.
-
I finally decided to write a blog post with my tips on finding sitters when you don't live near family -- we maintain our life through childcare (even though Phoenix is now in school we have to have backup for snow days, etc) and I'm so grateful for the love Phoenix receives.
-
If you're local to Nashville I also have a coupon to @sms_nashville because sometimes you need the guess work taken out of the process.
-
So, tell me 👇, where have you found your babysitters or do you live near family?

✨I nominated myself for 5 random facts because this is the fun stuff about social media and who needs to wait to be nominated?
-
Check my stories for all of my facts including the time I broke two bones within three months! 😳😬
-
So, tell me 👇, have you broken a bone before?
✨This week was sooo long. It's hard to believe only a few days ago the entire city shut down due to a sprinkle of snow!
-
I had a great weekend (a day date + seeing friends!), but I'm ready for our regularly scheduled programming. Mostly excited Phoenix will have school again -- my kid loves his teachers so much. I could tell (through a few toddler tantrums) he missed them.

❄️SNOW DAY ❄️
Miraculously Phoenix fit in the winter boots Jordan's parents bought him last year. I almost forgot we had them stored away!
✨I'm the luckiest to get to spend my days with this boy.

✨I don't even mind that Nashville shuts down at even the smallest hint of winter precipitation. I think we'll develop some fun snow-day activities throughout Phoenix's life.
-
I was homeschooled so I didn't quite get the full snow-day experience. What did you like doing as kid on snow-days?
-

So far we've eaten donuts and watched The Force Awakens.
✨Hey! I wrote a new blog post all about our experience walking The Brooklyn Bridge. Just click the link in my profile.

Travel with a toddler is a riot. Phoenix napped for a total of 20 minutes and if you zoom in on this photo you can see his stink face. 😂

✨ January weekends are made a little more special when cozying up on the couch with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
-
I'm enjoying a glass while watching The Golden Globes! I loved Lady Bird and The Diaster Artist. What was your favorite 2017 movie?
-
@muddybootwine wine is a small family run California winery and is now being sold in Nashville! I found this bottle at Belle Meade Wine & Spirits.

Phoenix's new trick is grabbing his shoes and jacket, running to the door and yelling bye-bye!
-
Too bad Nashville is an arctic tundra (today, with windchill, it felt like -2!) and I'm avoiding going outside! I'm originally from Chicago and I do not miss this kind of weather. 😜
-
What are your favorite indoor activities for little? We mostly rotate from room-to-room, so Phoenix doesn't get too bored.
