Ian was out of town last night, but Camille and I had a wonderful day and evening. A late afternoon rainstorm threw us a little for a loop, but we got creative with a dance party, some silly photos, and I even got brave enough to let her ditch the crayons for some REAL paint.
I am still receiving my Rocksbox sets and loving them! This past shipment was a great one ... all three pieces my stylist Justine sent me were home runs. She selected a Kendra Scott necklace (the Frances style in Iridescent Peach), a Margaret Elizabeth druzy bangle, and some Gorjana rhinestone stud earrings.
Don't forget that you may use my code ALIZADVENTURESXOXO to try out your first Rocksbox box completely free. You can log on, fill out a quick style questionnaire, and take a look at what sort of pieces they carry with no commitment. As a member, you can constantly update your wishlist (screenshot of mine below) to show your stylist the items you'd love to see show up on your doorstep. Wear the three designer pieces as long as you'd like (a day, a month, a season!) and ship them back in a prepaid envelope right from your own mailbox to get your next three pieces.
Occasionally I'll love a piece so much that I decide to keep it. In this situation, you're offered a discounted price, and you just leave it out of the box when you mail it back. So easy. Have you tried Rocksbox yet? I'd love to hear if you are liking it as much as I am.

Recently I had an opportunity to try out Boon's new SNUG lid. This silicone spout is a universal accompaniment to just about any cup with a normal 2.5"-3.75" diameter. So, you go out to a restaurant, grab your SNUG from your diaper bag, and BOOM, instant sippy cup. The silicone lid is BPA-free, PVC-free, Phthalate-free, and my other favorite two-word combo, dishwasher safe!
Here's why we are favoring it more than ever these days: I'd been using the take and toss sippy cups almost exclusively with Camille (man, they are easy and cheap), BUT she has recently learned how to snap the lid off by herself. We've had some spills and dump-outs, and we've never been happier to have a slipcovered sofa during snacktime. So when these arrived, the heavens sang because the silicone lids are so snug (hence the name) that they are impossible for Camille to remove.
I love knowing that I can keep one stored in my bag, taking up virtually zero room, and she always has access to a sippy cup.
We are BIG FANS!
Boon SNUG is available at Target and on Target.com.

It's consignment sale season and this excites me so much! Last Friday evening after an early family dinner at Chuy's, I went over to the Harris YMCA presale and scooped up some goodies. I got five outfits for Camille, an adorable beach coverup in case the new baby is a girl, a little sailor outfit and blue Boppy cover in case the new baby is a boy, a gender neutral towel, some vintage wooden blocks, and ... an Ergo carrier (yay!) all for a grand total of $60. This weekend there's a sale I'd like to hit, and there's one more next weekend. Between the three of these, I'm hoping to get all of Camille's spring and summer wardrobe taken care of since we will be a litttttle busy this year with a newborn :)

I have talked to so many women whose babies turned around 37/38 weeks, and I'm 35 right now, so I'm staying positive. And ... hanging off of the couch three times a day.
TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
