The best Mother's Day gifts featuring Novae Clothing

Hello readers and family! I haven't blogged in such a long time. It feels so good to write something that isn't for my English class. I cannot believe Mother's Day is this weekend. If you are looking for some last minute gift ideas or if you want to treat yourself, I found one of my new favorite boutiques.
Novae Clothing was created by a stay at home mom of four kids who was craving currents fashions with modest style. Which is perfect for me! As a mother I want to be able to run after Henry and not have to worry about showing too much skin or my shirt riding up. I love all the different styles they carry, and following them on Instagram. (@novae_clothing) Also if you want a discount, sign up for their newsletter, and they will send you a discount code. Plus you can get first dibs on knowing when they have the best sales. They just had a "fill a bag" sale which were the best deals I have seen on an online shop! Who doesn't love a good sale?!





What I wore:
Periwinkle skirt is no longer available but this one is perfect for tucking in and to wear with the floral
Textured Pencil skirt on sale for $10.99 plus one size fits all!


Thank you for reading,
Love
Andrea

Mommy Style Monday: How to connect with your spouse.

Happy Valentine's Eve everyone! I am so excited to be part of Mommy Style Monday with such wonderful ladies. Head to Kiana at Glitter & Donuts or Madeline at CaseyLand to sign up to be a part of the next one! I love following all those mamas on Instagram and connecting with them. What a great community for mothers.

I love the topic of this Monday. How to connect with your spouse? Jacob and I were married for four years before we became parents. Ever since having Henry 18 months ago it has changed. Here are some fun ways we connect:

1) Date night in! Which means Netflix, Hulu, or Rebox movies. We snuggle on the couch once or twice a week and catch up on our shows. If it's on the weekend we may buy a dessert/snack to eat while we watch.
2) Target runs without kids. My mom watches Henry while he sleeps and we head to Target alone. We love walking every isle while holding hands. Simple and cute.
3) Coldstone. We love ice cream and sometimes we sneak away for a short date night. We eat ice cream and walk around the outside mall.
4) Anniversary Trip. Every year we go out of town on our anniversary June 11th and stay alone over night.
5) Notice Each Other. Sometimes the best way to connect with your spouse is just to notice the things they do that you appreciate. It can be something small like a back scratch while brushing your teeth, or something big like a cheesy smile she gets when she is being extra goofy. Realizing that there are a lot of those things that make your spouse special and wonderful are key to being able to connect and love one another. This last one was written by Andrea's husband.

My husband is seriously such an amazing guy. He always opens every door for me (including my car door), makes me laugh/smile everyday, is the kindest guy I know, always tells me he loves me, and is the best father to our son! Happy early birthday tomorrow!
