I'm a shitty blogger but I'm giving you a Free Groove Book

Yes, I know...I've been slacking on blogging. But believe me it is because of this face.

I went back to work this week and it wasn't as bad as I thought. Saturday was quick day but Tuesday was my regular 10-7 schedule and there is nothing worse than leaving while your baby is sleeping and coming home and they are sleeping within the hour. You feel like you lost the entire day.
Another eh part about going back to work, is that I have to pump there. Boobs out at work, even if it's in a closed room is awkward.  Also the carrying case to the Medela looks like an ugly book bag so
I am totally eyeing this Sarah Wells pumping bag

Yesterday was my 6 week postpartum check up. Josh was so excited for this appointment because at your 6 week check up you get the "ok" for intercourse. Well let me tell you, the doc may say that it's ok but it don't feel ok! tmi? 

This little onesie got a ton of attention on my instagram. It's from a little shop on Etsy called From Ash With Love. She has other glitter onesies as well, and I am currently just holding myself back from purchasing all of them!!! She is currently offering my readers 15% off with this code
JESANDFRIENDS


ALSO, I finally subscribed to Groovebook.
If you don't know what it is, I'll explain. Every month you get to select 100 pictures from your camera roll on your cell phone and upload them to the Groovebook app. They will then make you a book filled with 4x6 pre-perforated photos. It's only $2.99 a month. Now I don't know about you but since the digital camera invention, I don't print shit. So this is perfect for me. 

It comes in a little purple booklet in an envelope via regular mail.




I absolutely love this thing! It's going to make keeping up with Charlee's photos a breeze. You want a free book???

A Backseat Post

Best part about breastfeeding? You don't have to bring baby food with you! Worst part about breastfeeding? The girls are out all of the time and some people are highly offended by it. 


I was recently given the opportunity to review a nursing infinity scarf aka a breastfeeding cover aka a great mini blanket to cover yourself in the car when your husband keeps the AC on 60 and high all of the time. 


This entire post was written from the car, hence the sunnies and the backseat pics. This is what happens when you are on maternity leave and have nothing else to do and you see an epic looking coffee on Instagram that is made with coffee ice cubes and called "the cubsta" and the closest place to get this "Cubsta" is an hour away. BUT this place also has amazing sammwiches and it totally worth the drive. It's called Brooklyn Water Bagel.

We were in the car for a good 3 hours yesterday and my little peanut slept for most of it. She woke up for a quick snack and that's when I fell in love with this nursing cover!

See? People can look in your windows and you have full privacy!

These are made by Carolyn. You have heard me talk about her before on my blog. She made our nursery crib sheets and changing pad cover. She is a stay at home mom and her husband is a two time veteran and I love working with her.  
All of her fabrics are from independent designers and they are super soft! Custom orders are a specialty of hers so sometimes the fabric she has will be exclusively for you! She also makes organic wood teethers that we will be using once we get to that stage. I can't say enough good things about the quality of her stuff! Most nursing covers are just nursing covers and that's exactly what they look like. This one looks like an accessory. It is by far one of my favorite baby/momma items lately and I highly recommend all breast feeding fashionista's have one. 

Carolyn is offering 10% off of any nursing scarf with the code JESS upon checkout. This offer is good until August 6th. If your a new mom head on over and grab one or if you know someone that is having a baby, this is a great shower gift!

Dear 4 Week Old Charlotte Elise

Dear Sweet Charlotte, today you are 4 weeks old! My has the time flown by BUT I have enjoyed every moment watching you grow and change. Your dynamite persononality is starting to shine bright! 
You hate tub time but love a sponge bath. 
You hate pacifiers but love the boob. 
You love to be snuggled when it's time for a nap and you are doing a great job sleeping at night! 
You can rock a knot headband like nobody's business. 
You hate the hiccups but love the gripe water that gets rid of them.
You toot like and old man.
You are a pleasure to bring anywhere with us due to the fact that you sleep through everything and are extremely portable. 
You are the most happy right when you wake up! I get the most smiles out of you then and they melt my heart. 
I am looking forward to so many more exciting "firsts" and watching you grow.

I love you my little peanut.

The Long Awaited And Disappointing Marg!

Yesterday is was beee-autifil out! It's been so muggy that we haven't really been going outside! I know, lamesauce right? We decided to head down to the Cape Cos Canal. There is always a breeze there so it makes the humidity more bearable.
This is our first family photo....pathetic lol! 
Charlee slept through the entire thing!

My mail day yesterday was pretty ah-mazing too! So many of you seem to be loving the donut onesie!! I fell in love with it too! I'll be sharing a discount code with you soon! Also I can't wait to share how great the nursing scarf is!!! Nobody wants to see your nips, and this cover does that job of covering everything up! All new moms should have one of these! 

On our way home from the canal, my mom had texted me that she was in the area. I know she  loves watching Charlee and since it was "National Gorgeous Grandma" day yesterday, I thought she should see her grand baby! She came by for 2 hours to babysit while Josh and I went to a local restaraunt that is on the water. For the last 9 months, I had been patiently awaiting this day. Margarita day had finally arrived. I was just as excited as Billy on Nudie Magazine day or when Ralphie got his Little Orphan Annie Decoder Pin. I had even saved my kimono for this day...
Not really, but you see how important this was.

Well it went like this.........
It was just OK. I don't know if it was all the hype that I put on it, or that it didn't come in an standard margarita glass. At this point I faced the facts and accepted that they don't use those type of glasses here. But then look closely.......
My gosh damn cocktail shrimp came in my margarita glass!!!!!! Talk about ruining my whole celebration! 
So, I had a margarita and a half, some fried pickle chips, shrimps and headed home! It was the perfect amount of time to just get out of the house for a few with just my hubby!
To wrap up my Wednesday, I got the best snap chat ever from Jen over at That's what she read. Unfortunately her son broke both of his arms falling off the playground this week. I can't even imagine. But at least she is making the best of it!!!!

TGIT!! I can't wait for this weekend!!!!
