Man life has been crazy busy lately – but all good stuff. If any of you were following along on Instagram story, you may have seen that Kevin Molly and I went to Big Bear this past weekend. It was so nice to get away in the mountains and spend time with our dearest friends for Father’s Day weekend. That said, we drove home yesterday morning so that we could spend some quality time with Owen because we have to leave again for NYC on tomorrow morning. Leaving Owen is still as hard on me today as it was the very first time we left him back when he was just a puppy. The reason we didn’t bring him to Big Bear, is because he gets really anxious and car rides and anxious in new places. So we just didn’t think it was fair to him to put him through all that anxiety just because we wanted to have them around. That felt selfish of us. So our good friend Chris stayed with him this past weekend. And while we’re in New York, Kevin’s brother Ryan and his fiancée Jill are going to stay with the one at our house so he’ll feels comfy at home (plus he LOVES them!). Still, I hate leaving him and I get choked up every single time.
Anyway, all that said I’m pretty nervous to take off again tomorrow because Molly was pretty fussy over the weekend. I’m not sure if she’s going to grow spurt or if she’s teething or if she’s just at an age where unfamiliar places give her anxiety. I get anxiety, Kevin gets bad anxiety, and so does Owen, so I guess it’s only fitting that Molly will get it too. Poor thing! I need to seriously chill so my anxiousness doesn’t rub off on her. But really, she was such a handful over the weekend that something must be going on with her. Any parents out there have any tips for things I can do to help her not feel so anxious and new places? The first thing that comes to mind, is just going to new places more often so she doesn’t get so freaked out because she’s so used to being at home. And we try to do that. We are actually travel a lot and try to bring her to do new experiences all the time. Anyway, I would love to hear any advice any other parents out there may have when it comes to helping your kiddos adjust to new places!
Also sharing my out the details for anyone was wondering. In Molly’s too of course! I got so many questions about this J Brand denim jacket when I wore it on Instagram stories multiple times over the past few weeks. I’ve actually had this jacket forever! It is by J Brand which means it wasn’t cheap! I totally splurged on it when I bought it but I just was super obsessed with it and had to have it. I think I got it like six years ago. Anyway, I found a similar one by J Brand here, however, it looks to be a little shorter than my denim jacket. And it’s still pretty expensive. But I found a super similar one for a fraction of the cost! This light wash jeans jacket is under $60 and pretty much looks the exact same in my opinion.
The dress I’m wearing is just a cute little sundress that I’ve had for a little while now. I’m actually surprised it still available online since I snatched it up as soon as I saw it. I’m wearing a size medium BTW. The reason I bought it is I just thought it would be a cute easy sundress to wear this summer. Plus I’m always looking for cute sundresses that would look good with flats and this one looks so cute with my chucks! And it’s under $50, so you know, I had to have it! It comes in another print too.
The rest of the details on my look and Molly and Kevin’s look are below the first pic! Hope you all have a great Monday I can’t wait to watch the Bachelorette with all of you tonight!
