Friday + A Giveaway!

Happy Friday! 


-ONE-
I blogged all about Knox's first birthday party on Wednesday, so click over and take a peek at my sweet baby's precious little party. How on earth have we already celebrated his first birthday?! I'm thankful I still have a few more days until he's actually one. ;) 



-TWO-
Well, I broke down and finally started "Southern Charm" when Season 1 was running on Bravo recently. (The original, not that awful Savannah replica. No thank you!) I recorded all the episodes of Season 1, and we are hooked! But we couldn't find the rest of the seasons and we were so bummed. But, Brandon and I finally found a way to watch it: thank you, Bravo OnDemand on DirecTV! I just love Cameran and Shep. Why did it take me so long to get into this show?! 



-THREE-
Have y'all ever heard Leon Bridges's music? When Brandon and I were in Charleston last month, the bar at Zero George was playing his music and we both immediately asked Siri who the artist was, and have since been blasting his music on repeat {typically on our Amazon Echo Dot as I'm getting dinner ready or when we're playing outside}. Download some of his stuff; you won't be disappointed! (Our favorite song of his is "Coming Home.")

-FOUR-
We have started to play a nightly game with Walker in an effort to A) encourage better sleep {no screen time before bed} and B) spend some special one-on-one time with him after Knox goes to sleep. I asked some friends for their ideas for little kid-friendly games, and y'all, they delivered! All I could think of were Candyland and Chutes & Ladders, and they suggested Count Your Chickens, Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game, Zingo, and Hi-Ho Cherrio. So I quickly got on Amazon and ordered these so we can have a full array of fun nighttime games. Do those of y'all with kids have any of your favorite non-screen-related games? Hit me up!



-FIVE-
And now for the most fun part: a giveaway in partnership with Megan Made Designs! I actually went to high school with Megan and have known her my entire life. She's the sweetest mama of two precious little boys and probably one of the craftiest people I know. She just opened her new business, Megan Made Designs, where she makes the cutest T-shirts for adults and kiddos, tote bags, and even little cut files that you can download and DIY! 

Megan has been so sweet to give away one T-shirt to a lucky winner here {applicable to U.S. residents only}, so use the Rafflecopter tool below to enter! I'll announce the winner on Monday. Good luck! 

I mean, how cute are these?!

  23. Those shirts are cute! I've never been a big Bravo watcher but last summer when I went back to MN for the summer I wound up getting sucked into all of those shows, Southern Charm included.

  24. I will definitely check out Leon Bridges' music! We are huge music lovers and love finding new music to jam to :) I love the "Chaos Coordinator" shirt! They are all so cute, though. :) Happy Friday!

  25. I LOVE Southern Charm....but I'm still not sure about the savannah version.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd have to pick the 'Dance Mom' tee. Those Bravo series are my crack! I have to wait until no one else is home to watch, though, because everyone just mocks mercilessly when I watch them :-)
