How was your weekend? Ours was both equally attractive and not without having its hiccups. I fulfilled my pal Sam and her baby Henry for delighted hour on Friday, which was so substantially pleasurable and hilarious now that they are equally previous more than enough to interact with every other! June gave Henry a big kiss on the nose but he was unsure about it. 😂
But then, June came down with a pretty speedy abdomen bug around midnight on Friday night time, which led to us staying up with her a whole lot of the evening. That was the initial time that’s ever happened and it was just so sad. 😭 But thankfully she woke up her smiley self on Saturday early morning and it seemed to have passed as quickly as it arrived on!
Then my dress collaboration with Elisamama launched on Saturday at 10am (due to the fact I was up all night with June, I entirely slept late as Neal obtained up with her and enable me sleep–I woke up to Fisayo’s psyched speedy fireplace texts buzzing my phone! 😂) and we were being bought out by the conclusion of the afternoon!! We are SO delighted and can not wait around for you all to get your attire!
Then we experienced magnificent day night on Saturday evening (with a authentic babysitter who was not family members, haha! It went terrific!) and it was so significantly exciting. We went to Osteria Langhe which I are not able to advocate more than enough and it did not disappoint. Neal nonetheless started experience unwell yesterday night with…you guessed it…stomach bug symptoms. And then June was up off and on with teething very last night time. So I am a pretty drained sitting duck about below. 👀 Which is the update from our dwelling. Pray for me. 😆
In any case, let’s bounce into some reader thoughts!
What are your preferred sunblocks for you, Neal and June?
Alright, if we’re chatting physique sunscreens–for June, I appreciate Pipette’s 100% mineral sunscreen lotion–which grownups can entirely use way too! It’s a 100% mineral sunscreen which was important to me for her, and it rubs in seriously immediately which is critical for a squirmy newborn.
For myself and Neal, I have a couple of. For a spray, I enjoy Supergoop’s Participate in sunscreen mist. From time to time you need to have a drugstore invest in to re-up even though, and I usually go for the SunBum spray which is readily available at really. a great deal any pharmacy or grocery shop! Each are clean chemical sunscreens that go on clear.
If you want a 100% mineral system sunscreen, I have not discovered a spray that I enjoy for that, but I do appreciate Beautycounter’s Countersun sunscreen lotion. It doesn’t leave a white solid or take eternally to rub in! I also love their face adhere for all of our faces (including June’s!) and I don’t have issues making use of it about my make-up possibly if the sun is sensation added solid and I need to have to re-implement later on in the working day.
For an everyday, underneath make-up sunscreen, I’ve been applying Supergoop’s Glow Display which I love alone or under makeup. I also enjoy Pharmacy’s Inexperienced Defense confront sunscreen for a 100% mineral product.
What’s the latest amusing point June is undertaking!?
June Enjoys animals. She gets so excited when she sees a dog, or a horse, or a cat, or seriously any animal. She does this hilarious growl factor “talking” to animals and squeals and kicks her legs seriously fast. It is SO Cute. We have not too long ago learned she also reacts this way to taxidermy. 😆 (I.E. a deer head on the wall as aspect of the decor, for illustration.) She has not pretty understood they really don’t reply again still. 10/10 extraordinary entertainment.
Do you have a most loved weekender duffle bag?
I do! I’ve experienced my Lo & Son’s Catalina duffle for decades now and I even now appreciate it! I’m pondering of getting a person for June so she can have her personal bag as well for weekend journeys! I will say I have the beige canvas and it’s so cute but it definitely exhibits grime, so I could think about going with a dark color or the poly material as that appears like it might be less complicated to wipe off. (They did not have that again when I bought the bag).
Just for entertaining: what is the greatest kind of potato?
I will get the controversial element out 1st. I really don’t like a baked potato and I don’t like mashed potatoes. I am a entire flavor kind of gal, and these in my impression are just…you know. They could be a lot much more interesting!?
I do like a 2 times baked potato (you know, combined with sour cream and butter, garlic, salt, pepper, chives and melted cheese on prime?) I really don’t mind a mashed potato with the skins still on with lots of cream and garlic, but I would never decide on to buy them when I have other alternatives.
French fries will very first and foremost be range just one. Specially a thin, crispy, sizzling, salty frite. Preferably eaten on a sidewalk cafe with a glass of cold white or rosé on a warm day. (The DEFINITION of the very good daily life, for me.)
I also like truly skinny crispy hash browns. Diner-style. All those are a close second! (But also, McDonalds hash browns are wonderful way too). Also scalloped potatoes–my mom generally designed them for exclusive events escalating up and I generally appeared forward to them on Xmas and Easter. My MIL also helps make actually great scalloped potatoes and also these tacky potatoes, I consider they’re known as funeral potatoes? These are SO Very good.
This concludes my potato Ted Discuss.
Hope you have a excellent rest of your day!
