A few things I'm loving right now. ๐Ÿ’— Happy weekend!

One thing I've always loved about Cincinnati is UDF. I didn't really realize it was possible for a gas station to be cute, but UDF has got it handled. And they have ah-mazing ice cream (I mean UDF = United Dairy Farmers, so yeah ๐Ÿฎ). My favorite is sea salt caramel, so I always have some (literally a tub) on hand. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I've had this nail lacquer for quite awhile, but it has been on heavy rotation as of late. It's super, super sheer (this is literally FOUR coats), but I love the iridescent look of it. Unfortunately, it looks like it is discontinued (why do brands do this???), but you can get it on Amazon for a hefty 40 bucks ๐Ÿ˜ซ // MAC in Delicate 

Even mild acquaintances of mine know how much I love baths. It's the perfect way to unwind, relax, read a book, drink a glass of wine, eat of a box of chocolates, listen to music. Pretty much all of my favorites activities can be done while taking a bath. And a bath isn't complete without some bubbles. I basically buy Johnson's Baby Bedtime Bath in bulk because it's cheap so you can use a TON of it every bath (and I do). And as the label promises, it helps baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer (and yes, I am the baby in this situation).

Last but not least, my nephew has been doing all types of cute stuff the past few weeks, and every time I see him my heart just breaks a little more ๐Ÿ’” 

1. I used to always dance for him when he was really little, and he'd just stare at me like I was crazy (because I am ๐Ÿ˜‚). Now when I come over, he starts dancing immediately when he sees me. So we dance together all the time right now, and it's just about the cutest thing in the world.

2. On Tuesday he started doing this thing when I'd hold him where all of a sudden he'd just look at me as if he wanted a kiss. So I kiss his little lips and it makes him so happy and makes me cry because I just can't handle it. 

3. He started saying my name ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ Or my aunt name, which is Boo.

Who knew a baby could be your best friend?! Dying over this child. Can't wait to see what he does next. Oh, and also, my sister announced on her 'gram that she's expecting her second baby. So cat's outta the bag! #morebabies #cantwait
