Notes from a Birthday & Marathon Weekend!

Yesterday, our beautiful baby girl turned two years old, which is absolutely wild!

We woke up bright & early (thanks to daylight savings time), opened up presents and met our friends to go watch the NYC Marathon, what has become a yearly tradition. We had such a fun morning cheering on the runners and celebrating Sasha with donuts. Later in the day, our families came over for dinner to continue the birthday celebrations.

The Underrated Pleasure of Eating Dinner Early. This article is old, but it’s new to me. Someone I follow on Instagram shared it and it totally resonated with me. While I’m always down to partake in late dining festivities, I definitely prefer an early bird special. A 5PM dinner with a cocktail is one of my favorite ways to do it. How about you?

The Common Belief that Steals our Joy. Grace shared this post and I loved it so much, I had to share here.

Also from Grace, my mouth is watering looking at this Salmon Gravlax recipe that she shared from her father.

Tips on dealing with feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. 

The New Balance 327’s have been a bit hard to get, but they’re now available in this pretty pink and black combo and this cream and blue color combo. If you’ve been eyeing them, I’d act on it and they seem to sell out so quickly.

J.Crew is having 30-40% off what seems to be most of their site. I love their Women’s Holiday Shop and Winter Weekends Shop so much.

I love this little corduroy jacket for little boys or girls.

These are some of our favorite comfy pants for Nate.

I ordered this henley in both white and black.

A potentially great dress for the holidays. I haven’t tried it on so I cannot speak on how it looks on, but I’m planning to order to assess.

Sephora has started their major sale for those who are Rogue Members. Tuesday it’s open to VIB. I’m getting my post ready, but a few things I’m definitely getting: my favorite Hourglass mascara, a new tube of GrandeLASH and one of my favorite night creams. They’re also doing 30% off for the Sephora Holiday collections. Use code YAYHOLIDAY.

    Your Sephora picks are MY Sephora picks thanks to you (that mascara…where has it been all my life?) Have you tried the Tower 28 Sunny Days tinted foundation? It’s even better than the Saie version!
