Life Lately

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Sorry I didn't have my normal Monday post.  This past weekend was so busy I didn't have time to work on the blog, or take any outfit photos.  We celebrated Mason and Tyler's first birthday, and had family in town for their party.  The party ended up being a blast, and we lucked out with perfect weather, which we were especially thankful for since we had planned on the majority of it being outside.  On Sunday we went the New England Aquarium.  I was excited to take Mason and Tyler there for the first time, however it was so crowded it made it hard to move around, and not very enjoyable.  Overall the trip to the aquarium was worth it because it was great to watch the boys and my niece and nephews have a blast seeing all the fish, but I definitely don't recommend going on a rainy Sunday afternoon, especially if you need a stroller!  The best part of the weekend was just being with my family.  Since they live in Vermont, I don't get to see them on a daily basis, so I love when we have time together.  Although I love blogging, I have to admit, it was nice to take a full weekend off from the blog and social media (I normally work on the blog a lot on the weekends).  It was great to just be in the present and not staring at my phone while spending time with friends and family.  Since I don't have a new outfit post to share today, I thought I'd share a few snidbits from my life lately (most images are from my Instagram),  and a few photos from the twins' party.

 I've been obsessed with these Revlon lip stains.  Whenever I put lipstick or gloss on, it's usually gone within twenty minutes.  These stains actually work and stay on for hours.

 We got the twins their first pair of shoes.  How cute are these Converses?  Now they match their dad.

For the past two months, I've been making detox smoothies for breakfast every morning.  This blueberry one is my favorite.

Mason and Tyler's birthday cake.  We did a Mickey Mouse theme for the party, and got their cake from White's Bakery and Cafe.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  They really make the best cakes in the Boston area.

Mason and Tyler eating cake for the first time.  They loved it!

Thanks for stopping by!
