Plant Shopping & 12 Things

  1. Had the best waffle ever the other day – it was at at Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles at the Phoenix airport. It looked like a glorified eggo waffle (I love eggo waffles) and was soooo good so last night I ordered another from a different location – except this one was not as good and seemed like a different waffle. Sad.
  2. My biggest pet peeve (okay not my biggest but up there) is when there are people looking for seats at the gate at the airport and none are available for them because people are taking up too many unnecessary spaces. Like one guy was alone and had his mcdonalds bag in one seat, his backpack in another. Another women was taking up FOUR seats with her belongings. I can’t handle the fact that they see families or couples walking around trying to find a seat and don’t even THINK to move their stuff.. real fired up about this one right now hahah.
  3. I love having a group chat with my girlfriends where we can literally say whatever. It always lifts my mood. Love that nothing is off limits with us – like we can talk about a weird bodily function or something we hate. Doesn’t have to be pretty and nice and make us sound good. Everyone needs friends like that where you can literally say anything.

4. I went to my 10 year high school reunion – I was honestly so nervous for it but it wasn’t bad and in fact I actually thought it was pretty fun so I am glad I went.

5. We just got back from Memphis and had such a good time – from the amazing food to getting to learn more about St. Jude’s and meeting some of the patients – it was an amazing experience. I want to tell you more about this in a bigger blog post so I will save it for that!

6. I am very happy with this recent Amazon find – I found these pajamas for the kids – they are so soft and only $15 and the colors are so pretty.

7. Another pet peeve is seeing people insta storying and driving. It makes me sick that I have ever done this. I have only done it once that I can think of BUT STILL. I have become wiser since. It makes me so anxious seeing mothers insta storying with their kids in back. Or really anyone for that matter. The other day I was behind this truck – he was in the fast lane and I was wondering why he was going sooo slow with a huge line of cars behind him. I passed him and looked over and sure enough he was just full on texting. Not the subtle texting you sometimes see people doing where they think no one will notice – just straight up had his phone out typing away while going 50 in a 75 with people passing him.

8. My drink of choice on all flights always: cranapple.

9. Something I did recently that felt sooo good was I got rid of ALL the kids mismatched cups, plates, bowls, etc and started fresh with a plain white set. I got these items all in white – flat plates, divided plates, cups, silverware, bowls. It is so nice to not have colors because sometimes my kids ONLY want a certain color – so I feel like white just makes it easy so no one is fighting over getting a “special” plate but mostly it just makes me happy seeing all the white in the dishwasher or in the kid’s drawer haha – so gratifying and makes me feel so organized.

10. I haven’t given a house update in a while!! I need to do a blog post on it. It is super exciting seeing certain things get done like seeing the roof on finally and the trim work done. I will post some pics soon!

11. The other day I realized I never picked out a book to read for the month and now I am so behind so I am going to pick back up in October! Still deciding which book to read..

12. I love that I can feel the baby kicking now 🙂 I have a pregnancy update post going up Monday!


P.S. My top is by Posse, my bag is Polene, jeans are maternity from Shopbop (they are also having their sale!), my silk cami is Cami NYC, earrings are Bauble Bar, and sandals are Hermes.

  1. Hi amber!
    I know this is an older Post, but I went back to look for it because I still remembered how amazing you looked with the Polène Paris bag! After 2 years, I finally want to buy it myself, but I am hesitant about the color. I love the color you’re wearing here, but I’m worried the suede part will stain too easily.. what’s your experience? Is there another color you’d also recommend?
    Thanks so much already! ❤️❤️

  2. The white plates thing made me think of socks! Lol. I have the exact same kind of socks for all of my daughters socks (a white pair I love from Carters…I have like 20 pairs for her) and then I do the same for me and for my son. It makes life so much easier. Now if I could only convince my husband he needs to do the same!! Lol!

  3. My 10 year high school reunion is next year! Good to hear you had fun, because I’m definitely nervous about it! Can’t believe how quickly time has flown

  4. Thanks for the kids pajama link! I LOVE the little boys vaenait underwear but never knew they made pjs too! Ordering some for my twin girls and little guy 🙂

  5. Amen to the airport thing. I try to assume they are unintentionally spreading to much and maybe they are a jerk too 😬 and ask if I could please use the seat. I’ve made the same mistake and was happy to move out of the way when somebody brought it to my attention. I learned the hard way once when I got in a huff that a couple was blocking the stairs when they could clearly see my hands were full of heavy stuff and they just stood there. I said “sure, just keep blocking the way” then I found out that she just got the news that her father’s cancer was back…so ya, the world doesn’t revolve around me and I was totally being self absorbed and petty. I try to remember that everybody has their own challenges they are dealing with and sometimes they just need some patience and kindness.

  6. Can’t wait for your house update! I want all the details 🤗also, I have a book suggestion for you. Read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, I’m an avid reader and this is one of the best I’ve ever read!!

  7. I 100% agree with people taking up 3/4 seats just by themselves… It always makes me feel so angry and uncomfortable and I’m always so close to saying something but don’t actually want to start a scene… And the thing you said about Instagram and driving is so important, it sickens me that some very popular people still do that and make it look like a cool thing to do …

  8. Great post! I also hate it when people take up all the airport seats. It’s fine when there’s lots of space, but if others have to stand, I think it’s only fair to place your belongings on the floor.

  10. People in the airport can be SO oblivious! I would just smile sweetly and ask if any of the seats are available! PS we are a few weeks apart in pregnancy and I’ve been loving all of the baby kicks too, it’s the sweetest<3

  11. Waiting for her to share where this greenhouse is at. So thought this would be the post but I’m not seeing it. Anyone?
