This little boy wants to do everything on his own these days!!! He lovvvves when we let him push around the mini shopping carts and “shop on his own” haha! He also locked me out of his room the other day and any time I tried to go in he would run and close the door on me ­- he only wanted to play by himself ha. He is crazy particular about his food.. like the pickiest eater I have ever met!! He always has been. The number of things he will actually sit down and eat on his own I can count on two hands. He especially loves anything we are eating and I have been craving mac n cheese this pregnancy (okay always) and I love the shapes that Annie’s has (why do shapes taste better, haha?!) and their white cheddar shells so Atticus has started to eat them too which is verrrry nice because he is old enough where I really shouldn’t have to feed him… and the shells conveniently stick onto the ends of his fingers which he finds fun haha! We have always loved Annie’s and recently went to an event they had just for fun and an excuse to get out of the house.. Atticus was offered one of their Three Cheese Mini Pizza Bagels and I quickly said “oh sorry he is so picky he probably won’t eat it!” Nope.. He gobbled that thing right up and went back for more and more so me and David bought enough to fill our freezer ha. He actually ate almost everything there at the event which was honestly SHOCKING. He even got his hands on a Mini Pizza Bagel when it was frozen and before we could take it away he was munching on it and apparently he likes them frozen as well ha. So we went from being Annie’s fans to hardcore Annie’s fans. I just really love that they make everything with simple, natural and organic ingredients and I can feel good about giving their products to my baby!

*Thanks to Annie’s for sponsoring this post.

  1. i love your posts! You are one of the most genuine bloggers I follow. Congratulations to you and your beautiful family on Rosie! God bless you <3

  2. After reading this post I went out and bought Annie’s white cheddar shells and they are so delicious! I practically lived off mac n cheese growing up because I was a picky eater and that is the best I’ve had. I’ve been missing out for too long lol. Atticus looks so cute pushing the shopping cart around and picking up all his favourite things.

    1. Yay!! So glad you loved them! We are big fans over here 🙂 Thanks for reading!!

  3. Love your blog! So I know that you’re more fashion and hair focused on here, but I came across this baby food line I thought you should know about. Bambino’s Baby food offers frozen, organic baby food that is full of nutrition and the little ones love it! Their website is, maybe your new baby will like it!

    1. Thanks so much Kate!! I appreciate that!! And oh great! I love the suggestion, I will check it out 🙂

  4. Annie’s white shells are my absolute favorite! I love those white cheddar shells I seriously could eat them everyday! I need to try their pizza bagels though! I didn’t even know they sold those!

    1. Thanks so much Ashlee!! And I agree!! Annie’s is always our go- to 🙂

  5. Oh my gosh I ate so much Annie’s during my pregnancy. It was seriously the only thing I ever felt like eating for lunch. My husband and I always joked our now ten-month-old would come out orange! Hah

    1. Haha oh my goodness thank you for the laugh! That’s too funny! I think I may be equally as obsessed 😉

  6. I love the Barefoot Blonde in the kitchen 🙂 Congratulations to you for all your happinesses and success! <3

  7. Hi Amber! I hope your pregnancy is going well. Atticus is so lovely!!! I’m italian and I like so much mac and cheese but here you can’t find them…. Can you write your personal recipe to cook them?
    thank you

    1. Thank you so much!! So far so good 🙂 Hoping baby girl will come soon!! And you can buy Annie’s products online luckily!! Amazon has them!! I hope that helps!! I don’t have a personal recipe since it is a mix!! xo

  8. Awww!! Atticus is adorable and love the mini shopping cart! You look so happy and gorgeous! I always get so excited to read another post of yours!! I am in desperate need for a new pair of cute boots now that it is getting colder and colder (yay I just love the holidays!! ) and I just cant seem to find a stylish pair! I was wondering if you could recommend some of the ones you like because you are the style guru and my fashion icon!! Love your posts 🙂

    XO, Taylor

      1. Yes, those were just what I was looking for!! Love the over-the-knee look… Thanks SO much Amber!!!! XOXO

  9. Aww!! Adorable! Love the mini shopping cart! You look so gorgeous and happy!! I always get so excited to see your posts! Do you have any cute winter boots that you like? I am in desperate need of some super cute boots but I can’t seem to find ones that I like. You are the style guru so I was wondering if you had some pairs that you liked.. thanks SOOO much Amber!!!

    xo, Taylor

  10. I’m a big fan of Annie’s snacks, but I’ve never tried their pizza bagels. I must admit that I also used to eat some of the frozen cheese off bagel bites while waiting for the oven to preheat (and I still do this with frozen pizza)! You are looking fabulous in that dress, and Atticus is adorable as usual!

    1. You will definitely need to try them!! So yummy! And haha okay good so Atticus isn’t the only one?! 😉 Thanks for the nice comment!! xo

    1. Thank you!! He loves being in charge at the store, it’s so cute 🙂 And thanks!! I hope she comes soon!! We are so ready!! xo

  11. Annie’s is one of our favorites too! Amber you look adorable!!! Atticus is so funny. His personality is really starting to shine. On David’s snapchat they were playing with a police car in the hall and Atticus Was just so happy????. I love the stage were the simplest things are the best moments. Can’t wait to see baby girl????????????

    1. Thanks so much Arley!! And I agree, I love seeing his personality develop 🙂 It is so fun!! Thank you for reading!! xo

  12. I can’t believe Atticus ate it when it was still frozen! That’s commitment hahaha Love to hear your stories, there are always fun! And may I say you look so fit. Did you do exercises trough out your whole pregnancy? It looks like you just add a bump to your body. I wonder if you have gained any weight at all, you look soo good! Xoxo

    1. Haha I know!! He is hilarious!! And thanks so much!! My main form of exercise is walking around the city and I go to spin class which I LOVE! Thanks for the nice compliment!! I am so flattered!! xo

  13. Love this! Atticus is seriously such a cutie, and he looks so grown up in these shots! <3

  14. Soooo cute! I really think Annie’s is terrific for little ones..heck we eat it too! My daughter loves their cheese crackers! I think he’s the perfect age to start doing those little things on his own, bc once baby girl is here he’ll be able to do so much to help out!! 😉 Enjoy him up!!

    1. Thank you so much!! 🙂 And I know huh?! I think I am equally as obsessed with Annie’s as Atticus haha! I am glad you agree!! And yes! We can’t wait for her to arrive 🙂 xo

  15. I still cannot get over how adorable you are pregnant. As stunning as ever – maybe even more so since you just radiate happiness! Love the pictures of Atticus shopping “all by himself.” He’s growing up so fast!!

  16. Omg, I totally understand what you mean! My little boy has been picky since he could eat something else than breast milk. I could give him all the healthy homemade food and all he did was to zip his mouth and look at me with his big blue eyes. Now it’s getting better, but he still has some downs when it goes to eating. So now when he’s 3 I decided not to be too crazy about feeding him (I try to follow his time and cravings – and of course my common sense 😉

    BTW, you look great! I still have 2,5 months to my due date but my bump is like yours 🙂 and I too have a long grey cardigan like yours to wrap myself when it’s colder 🙂 xoxo

    1. No way?! What is it that makes kids so picky?? haha! That’s good it is getting better though, it gives me hope with Atticus 🙂 You sound like an amazing mama!! Thanks for the sweet comment!! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy gorgeous!! xoxo

  17. Awh you guys look like you are having fun! You are about to drop any day! LOL!

    1. Thanks so much Tami!! I try to keep up but I am SO ready for baby girl to come haha 🙂

  18. How cute! Love when stores have mini shopping carts! <3 When I was little, I would eat ANYTHING, but the older I got, the pickier I got. haha. So hopefully the older Atticus gets, the less picky he gets, since he is starting off picky! 🙂

    1. Thanks Hayley!! 🙂 And okay that gives me hope that maybe the opposite will happen haha!

  19. Oh how I used to love bagel bites!!! Everyday after school I would turn on Ricki Lake or Oprah and sit down with my bagel bites and cheetos. Oh to be a kid again 🙂 Feeling nostalgic.

    1. Thank you so much!! That is so kind of you!! And I know huh?! I felt like such a kid saying that haha!!

  20. Love this post! I’ll have to pick up some of those mini pizzas for my son to add to our current rotation of macaroni/pizza/spaghetti + a vegetable! And I love that the ingredients are organic, so I won’t feel bad if he’s had pizza for say the 4th night in a row lol! 🙂


    1. Thank you so much!! I love hearing that! And definitely try them out!! You and your son won’t be disappointed!! 😉

    1. Thank you so much!! That is such a nice compliment 🙂 I appreciate it!! xo

  21. Oh that cardigan is to-die-for!!! You look so gorgeous with your baby bump, making me miss mine and I didn’t think that was possible! 🙂 LOVE Annie’s.

  22. Haha I feel the same way about Annie’s!! They just taste better. When I was pregnant I craved Mac b cheese All the Time! But I at least felt like I was being semi healthy with the natural organic ingredients.

  23. You look gorgeous! I always love seeing your little guy grow. Mine is almost 6 months old so sometimes I feel like your pics are a glimpse into my future haha

    1. Thanks so much Sophie!! That is so sweet of you 🙂 And aww how cute! I love hearing that!

    1. He LOVES going to the store 🙂 If only he knew how to push his cart without running into things haha!

  24. Hey Amber! Love the post! I always come to your blog for advice & inspiration for fashion and beauty! Just wondering if you could do a post on winter outerwear? I live in Chicago and I am in desperate need of a new down coat and snow boots to get through the extremely cold winter here, but find everything to be so ugly! If anyone could find practical yet cute winter wear it would be you!

    Thanks so much! Melissa

    Also do you ever shop at Bloomingdales? 🙂

    1. Hi Melissa!! Thank you so much!! That means so much to me 🙂 I am so glad you follow along!! And that’s a great idea! Thanks for the suggestion, I will try and work that in 🙂 xoxo

  25. This is adorable! I absolutely love Annie’s. They are ethical AND make great food! xx

    1. How cute!! I love how kids like to do it all on their “own”. It is adorable 🙂 And yay I am glad you love them too!

  26. They are such a great company and I love their food too. It’s literally the only mac and cheese I’ll feed the kids I babysit. He is too cute pushing that cart!

  27. Atticus is growing up so fast, it makes me want to cry. I feel the same way about my Sister who was born two days before Atticus.
    Can’t wait for your baby girl to be born 🙂
