Well hello guys! I’ve been pretty checked out this past week. I hosted a few groups of friends in beautiful Santa Barbara so the laptop got pushed aside and replaced plenty of pool and beach time. My hosting itinerary was pretty aggressive being nearly 7 months prego but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. My friend and beauty blogger pal, Kathleen joined the girls and me with her two boys the first half of the week and then my friend and business partner Lauren flew in with her two boys. At one point the lineup was 3 moms vs. 6 kids under 6. And 2 of the 3 moms are very prego! WILD times, but good times and even better, happy and hilarious memories. I’m not going to lie I’ve never appreciated having a hubby more from a parenting teammate standpoint. The guy does a lot for our girls, not to mention he’s a lot of fun too. I think he deserves some extra loving this week.
When it comes to having no extra time for getting ready I’m most often throwing on a dress or romper because it’s one step faster than two pieces. Rompers are a go-to during the summer. I found this cute ikat print at J. Crew and it actually fits the baby bump, so that’s a plus too. It’s just so easy which is exactly what busy mamas need. Even on vacation, there’s never a dull moment and rarely time for primping. I’ll definitely break this guy out again next summer. It also comes in black and it’s currently on sale. Not too shabby for a Monday.
