Happy Mother’s Day to all of my fabulous Mama friends! I hope you all are having a fabulous day thus far, and are being treated like queens! We kicked off mother’s day yesterday with breakfast at my favorite spot- ( if you are from the suburbs here in Chicago, you N E E D to try “Citrus Diner” in Westmont!) and then we headed to the zoo. It was 75 and sunny, talk about perfect. Giuliana was so excited mostly because the dinosaurs were staged there today and she is OBSESSED with dinosaurs! For dinner we headed to the River walk, because the weather was just way to perfect not to! We had dinner at the river cafe and walked around for over an hour looking at the ducks, and exploring every single water fountain.

Later today we have a BBQ planned with my family, but in the meantime I will be spending every second occupied with my two favorite munchkins that made me a mom. Some days are great, some days are horrible, some days I need 5 glasses of wine, and other days I want to wake them up when they go to bed because I miss them. Motherhood is a wild ride- am I right?

I consider myself blessed to be both a girl mom and boy mom. It’s the best of both worlds. I am SO SO SO happy to have one of each. Giuliana gives me all the drama and sass, but loves to shop and dress up. Colt is already super laid back, and I look forward to being a baseball & hockey mom… and am super excited to have a “mama’s boy”.. after all, Giuliana is ALL about Cory, all day every day.

Even though today is my “designated” holiday, I really am treated like it’s mother’s day every day, and I am ever so thankful. It’s the little things.. like Giuliana telling me she has my mother’s day card in her play kitchen microwave and to not peak because daddy said it’s a surprise. Or when she picks me weeds 🙂 Bless her heart.

Another perk of this Mother’s Day was being introduced to  (insert salsa dancing emoji)… I know guys, I’m obsessed.  is the largest online consignment and thrift store that offers clothing for women, men and children. Bringing brand favorites such as Zara, American Apparel, Madewell, BCBG, Calvin Klein, NIKE and many more.  Swap,com was sweet enough to gift me with a credit to shop for myself and the little’s for mama’s day! I immediately fell in love.

The dress I’m wearing is Tonatiuh and it still had the tags on! Brand spanking new friends. Such a steal.  Giuliana is wearing a romper from Children’s Place… that too had tags on. Her cute shoes are Cherokee brand- look at those details! Do we look marvelous or what?!

I also snagged Zara jeans for Colt, along with a baby gap shirt, little shoes, and a Tobi romper for myself. They are all pictured below. Heart swoon! Keep on scrollin’ for that coupon code 😉



There are SO many cute items that I need to go snag later- shhh don’t tell Cory 😉
