Sneaker Round-Up

Sneaker Round-Up

It’s finally sunny and in the 60s around here and you’ll find my boys playing outside digging in dirt, jumping in puddles, watering plants, helping their grandpa plant, running around the backyard; I’m loving every minute of it! Their love for the outdoors reminds me of when I was little and we’d spend most of our days outside playing in the sprinklers and running to the ice cream truck for snow cones on hot summer days. We had one bike amongst the five of us sisters we’d share and being the youngest of the five sisters I’d be the one who never got a turn to ride the bike but I’d jump on and get a ride from each sister. Really nothing would stop us from enjoying our time outside!

With the kids being outside most the day I’m constantly chasing them because with my two year old sometimes playing in the dirt turns into discovering our tastebuds by eating the dirt. Some days I feel like a headless chicken running in all four directions trying to prevent chaos. Last Friday my two year old decided to walk out of the house without anyone noticing and luckily my sweet neighbor spotted him and brought him home (yes, major #MOMFAIL) how that happened is a story to be shared another time! With that said, I’m literally on the run all day and the importance of a good pair of sneakers is key when you’re a mom of two toddler boys. So, here’s my roundup of the 10 best must-have spring/summer sneakers all linked below! These have it all the style, glitz, glam, and of course comfort.

I rarely wear heels because I don’t think I’ll ever be the mom that can chase her kid down with stilettos. Are you the mom that’s walking down the grocery store aisle in her high heels perfecting that catwalk? Or are you the mom that slips on those sneakers and is on the run in the aisles like a contestant on Supermarket Sweep? (How many of you actually remember watching that show?!) I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Joggers for Life

Joggers for Life

I jump with joy the days I can just get a few minutes to myself.  Things around here with toddler boys can sometimes get a little haywire.  I went to moms yesterday and the boys missed their naps by about 5pm my mom was having her anxiety kick in because the kids were literally running and jumping off the walls. The beauty of missing their naps was they were knocked out and asleep by 7pm sharp! I snuck in a nap once they fell asleep which was so refreshing!

We were hit with a bit of rain and some flurries yesterday but that didn’t stop us from hitting the polls! I loved seeing all the posts on everyone stepping out and getting their voice heard! As the weather gets colder we moms still have to step out for early morning school drop-offs or errands and there’s nothing like having a pair of joggers to add to your momiform to keep things warm and cozy. I just had to pop in and share the sweetest deal on the coziest Alternative joggers ever!

(To purchase simply click on either of the images below and buy yourself a pair, there are more colors and prints you can select from once you click the image)

These joggers fit snug like a glove and to add to their comfort they are SOFT!! They have a slim fit to them and they do tend to shrink just a little after the first wash. Initially I bought these joggers in a medium because many reviews said they run small but the medium gave me a loser fit whereas the small size was more snug. I prefer to wear joggers a little more snug (I’m about 5 feet and wear a size 24 or 25).  I love these joggers so much that I have four pairs!!

My first initial find for the Alternative jogger was at Nordstrom but they were priced at $54.  Until I found them on Amazon for less than $25!!!! Sweet deals like this make me jump with joy!!! I’ve linked the Alternative joggers here.  They come in different colors and even a fun camo print (*note pricing varies on amazon based on the print/color you select).  As the weather is getting cooler all of us moms can use a cozy pair of joggers to cozy up by the fireplace or slip them on in the crisp cold mornings when we have to drop the kids off to school. Don’t miss out on this deal! To purchase simply click the image/link and buy your pair now!

As the holidays approach I’m excited to share more styles and deals with you so stay tuned with me I’ll be posting more updates on sales and discounts!
