Hello from the Outer Banks!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Back at it this week with another Bailey's Bites and excited to share some random updates with you all 🙂 some of these updates I shared on Instagram throughout the week, but excited to share on this week's Bailey's Bites as well!
We made it to the Outer Banks!!!
My favorite place in the world. If you're reading here I'm sure you're following along already, but get ready for lots of #DOTDs (if you're new here, that's Drink of the Day). We have a whole daily drink menu coming in hot.
I got my Created Colorful color analysis back!
In case you missed it, I shared all about my experience with my Created Colorful color analysis here. I was excited to find out I'm a light summer! It was so fun having this done. If you end up getting it done, let me know if you're also a light summer and we can share shopping ideas!
The most amazing custom Hawaiian shirt...
I posted this picture on my Instagram when we got to the beach and I got SO many questions. I got this custom dog Hawaiian shirt for Charlie's birthday, but knew I couldn't wait a few weeks to give it to him because it would be perfect for the beach. If you're looking to make one, you can have it made here.
Eleanor got her first COVID shot last week!
Again, if you don't agree with this decision, please keep your thoughts to yourself. We believe in science around here, and you'll be immediately blocked if you have something rude to say. Zero tolerance policy on this one. I was shocked that she had ZERO side effects whatsoever - not even a little bit of fussiness. We went with the Moderna shot and go back four weeks later for her next (and final) vaccine. I can only imagine how the moms of littles who were born right when the pandemic began felt - I felt a HUGE sense of relief and I only had to wait six months. It was an amazing feeling!
Omg, THIS ATHLETIC SKIRT IS EVERYTHING.
I ordered FIVE athletic skirts from Athleta recently in hopes that I would find one that worked because I find them so much more comfortable and flattering than shorts for my body type. I returned four of them, and absolutely fell in love with one of them - this one. I got it in the navy. I found that it ran true to size, and I want it in allllll the colors now. I'll be living in this at the beach, and for the rest of the summer!
Baby-Led Weaning has been SO fun so far!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know we started our baby-led weaning journey last week as Eleanor turned six months. I thought it would be so much scarier than it's been so far, but I've been having SO much fun with it! If you're a mom and plan to start BLW at some point, I highly recommend following @SolidStarts and @FeedingLittles. I also highly recommend taking the Feeding Littles course - I learned SO much from it. I also received several questions about what high chair we use and this is the one - it is the one I've seen that's highest recommended in terms of positioning, etc.
You guys know I love a good headband...
And I've been SWOONING over all the headbands from Anthropologie. I mean, just look at them. They're gorgeous and several of them are high on my wish list.
A snack I'm LOVING lately
Omg, have you had the Trader Joe's Sour Cream & Onion rings yet?? They're SO GOOD. I can't get enough of them. They remind me a lot of Funyuns. They're gluten-free and made from lentils... sounds weird, but they're so addicting. Highly recommend picking up a bag next time you go.
That's it for now!! Hope you enjoyed this week's Bailey's Bites and hope you have a great week 🙂
