A few of my favorite things {shabby apple giveaway!}

You may have noticed that I've been a little absent from the blog this month. The main reason being that I've been filling my time loving on this sweet little guy.

That precious newborn stage is so hopelessly fleeting so I've been soaking up every moment. 
Ain't he cute? ;)



On another note, I wanted to share some things that I have been loving recently. These are just a few random favorites of mine that have put a smile on my face. Enjoy!

John Mayer - Born and Raised
Have been listening on repeat. Love his new album!


Homemade popsicles
Popsicle molds are perfect for summer! It's fun to experiment with flavors and come up with your own yummy recipes. This one in particular is nonfat plain yogurt, a bit of apple juice, frozen strawberries and canned peaches. Yum! Talia loves them and I like that they are a happy, healthy treat.

Clear
This is one of the apps on my iphone that I could not live without! If you are an avid list-maker like me, you will love it too. It is a must have to stay organized and it is fun and simple to use. Head over to the app store to check out Clear for yourself.



Shabby Apple
I love to ohh and ahh over pretty clothes and Shabby Apple is one of my favorite places to check out awesome vintage inspired and classic clothing and accessories. Just look at how gorgeous these dresses are!
