Whew! I survived this week solo with all four kiddos. haha! It was my first time flying solo with the group and we all survived!
Tab was out of town until late last night. Nixon had baseball camp every morning, Ebby Lee had Backyard Bible Club, we had several play dates in there, and we managed to make it to the pool three days as well. #whowantstofistbumpme #haha
Just like every Friday, I’m joining my friends, Andrea and Narci, to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES! I have a big ol’ post full of favorites for you today. You might want to grab a cup of coffee or some water to stay hydrated. 🙂
First up, Nordstrom reached out and asked me to talk about one of my FAVORITE kid brands, Tucker + Tate, win-win for me! Tucker + Tate is a super cute kids’ line at Nordstrom. From swimsuits to sandals to everyday wear, they have it all. My favorite thing about this brand is the price! The clothes are all super affordable and everything my kiddos own is comfortable. (Kid win in their book!)
I wanted you to see what cute and comfy goodness Tucker + Tate has to offer. Bowen’s shirt is sold out but this is similar, Bowen’s shorts, Ebby Lee’s shirt, Ebby Lee’s shorts, Britt’s romper, Nixon’s shirt, and Nixon’s shorts can all be found on Nordstrom.com. (Free shipping and free returns!!)
Just like I shared on Wednesday most of our summer days are spent by the pool. Then we come home to have some down time. All these outfits are the type of outfits my kiddos would grab all on their own. Comfy is their love language. And Britt’s love language happens to be having her mama hold her. That’s why her hands are up!
Can you tell we’re all a little smitten? 🙂
The colors and patterns all scream summer right now.
I turned around and this kid was twelve…or almost. Doesn’t he look big? You can shop Bowen’s shorts and a similar shirt.
Super cute, everyone was comfy, and very affordable…FAVORITES!
I had to include one more of this cutie.
And a few more favorites…for Britt this tie dye dress, for Ebby Lee this tank and short set, and this tee for the boys. Britt has a couple other outfits and a swimsuit from Tucker + Tate. I’ll make sure I link them when she wears them and I’ll make sure to take a picture.
You can shop all the looks at the bottom of the post.
Britt Bradford is everyone’s FAVORITE at the moment. All the kiddos just can’t get enough. Last week, Nixon and I put together this Jump-a-Roo. We were really proud of ourselves. If Britt gets really tickled about something, she’ll wink that one eye when she smiles. So sweet.
Miss Priss had her first ever day at the pool with friends. She did great! She’s a big fan of the pool…so my days of laying out pool side while my kiddos swim are gone for a few years. If you see me at the pool, odds are-Miss Thing and I will be in the water.
I fed her some food and then sweet Nixon shared his fries. She was loving it!
Britt got to attend Miss Ashby’s 5th Birthday Party!
This little guy was such a good sport and partied hard with his bestie as well.
It was group picture time and this is the look I got when I asked Madeley if she’d hold Britt. Her face LIT up! Britt happens to be one of Madeley’s FAVORITE people.
This crew had so much fun celebrating Ashby!
I’ve gotta be honest so far the hardest part to our new normal is the fact that we have four kids. (Mamas with six kids are laughing at me right now and I would be to if I were you. ;)) Britt is a really easy baby…she eats well, sleeps well, and has a pretty laid back attitude but four kids is a lot. On this particular day we’d been home two weeks and in the late afternoon I loaded all four up to make a major Costco run. I’m talking two carts BIG trip kind of run. Ebby Lee and Nixon both pushed. I directed traffic (and by traffic-I mean I made sure no one ran up on anyone else’s heels because YYYYIIIIIIIKKKKKEEEESSSS does that hurt!). We kept it moving quickly and after loading everything in the back of the car I had this moment of being so proud of myself. (I’m throwing humility out the window for just a bit…haha!). It was the first time I gave myself a pep talk and was saying…You’ve got this! Up until this point, I’d forgotten the diaper bag, somebody was crying, or we were just a hot mess at all errands. So I’m definitely not saying I have it all together all the time. NO, I’m saying I had one moment in the first two weeks of us being a family of six and I thought it deserved documenting. I also might have called Tab and bragged about how well the Costco trip went. On the way out of the parking lot, one kiddo hit another kiddo and the moment was completely over. I’m glad I took the picture because it didn’t last long.
In the last week, we’ve been to four doctor’s appointments. I’ve had a random assortment of kiddos at each one and I must tell you they were so good. I bragged about them on Instagram last week.
A Sunday selfie with my FAVORITE five people 🙂
Any Southern Charm watchers out there? I was channeling my inner-Cameran.
Sunday afternoon, I took two hours off for some much needed ME time! I headed straight to the nail salon for a manicure and pedicure. I was a little happy about it. haha!
My two hours alone were complete motherhood minutes…where you’re so tired and just need to be alone but the second you’re gone you miss them. Sigh. Anyone else do that? This crew is my absolute FAVORITE.
A big THANK YOU to Nordstrom for partnering with me today. Again, you can shop the post here…
Don’t forget to join the link-up! Hope you have a great Friday! XO
