We were spoiled with amazing weather last weekend, but this week we haven’t been so lucky. It’s been a chilly and rainy mess in our neck of the woods, so Lucy and I have been spending our days at the house working on her walking skills and snuggling the day away. I never would have dreamed that I would be content cooped up in the house, but Lucy has completely flipped upside down everything I thought that I knew. These last ten months of being a mama have been no question, the best of my life. This baby changed everything, and I have zero complaints. Okay, well maybe I have complained a little about the sleep deprivation, but she has been *knock on wood* sleeping through the night, so I just decided to block it out of my mind;)
It has been a hot minute since I’ve shared the links I’m loving lately, so let’s do this.
1- I’m a liiiiittle embarrassed by how many times I have watched this video of Ludacris rapping the children’s book Llama Llama. Could this be the new genre of kids music? I wouldn’t be mad.
2- I started using Amazon Music this month and it is AWESOME. You can get a 30-day free trial right here, and it sucked me right in. I had been using Spotify Premium before Amazon Music, and it is probably 100,000x’s better. Yes, 100,000 times.
3- I made this Creamy Avocado & Spinach Pasta yesterday, and Lucy went HAM on it (see photo below.) I didn’t add the pecans or basil because I didn’t have any on hand, but it was tasty and I give it two thumbs up. Lucy devoured two tray fulls (because that is an accurate unit of measurement once you have kids) last night, and the leftovers today. Girl can eat.
4- Pinterest has been my obsession lately, and I am having so much fun pinning home ideas, birthday party ideas for Lucy, and quotes that make me want to run a marathon. Obviously not going to do that….ever…. but you can follow me here and maybe you can gain a little more motivation too;)
That’s all I’ve got. Happy almost Friday, be sure to whoop it up! XO.
Between a black lab, a cat with a life purpose of knocking things onto the floor, and a baby…we have some serious messes at casa de Albert. & When life gives you messes, buy a robot vacuum. Enter in- bObi Pet! Imagine living in a world where there is a machine that you can program to clean while you are sleeping, at work, or just while you’re kicking back with your feet up. Well, prepare yourself, because it exists….and it is awesome. She sweeps. She vacuums. AND she mops. This vacuum is the housewife Shane wishes he had;)
So, I went to see Shania Twain in concert again….I was not lying when I said that I was going to become her groupie. My previous blogpost about the first concert is right HERE if you’re interested;) Yesterday was my little sister Kayci’s birthday, Shania just happened to be playing a show in Chicago that same night, and we were both free; The stars were aligning for us. I found floor tickets for dirt cheap on StubHub the night before & I paid twice as much to sit in the very last row three days earlier…Rookie move. Our seats were actually good enough for me to get photos of her that you COULD ACTUALLY SEE. What an accomplishment. Kayci and I were right towards the end of the aisle, and when Shania went through the crowd she passed us and we touched and made some really intense eye contact…….Magical. Best. Night. Ever. Seeing her twice in one week was really a dream come true for me, but I think I would go to every single show if I could. She was my OBSESSION growing up, so really no one should be surprised by it whatsoever. I should probably just start an entire category for Shania posts on my blog at this point, because honestly I don’t think I am done seeing her in concert. No shame, reeeeally no shame.

After the concert, we bought Shania T-shirts off of a very sketchy man in the parking lot from the car, and when I asked him for a small he l i t e r a l l y pulled it out from inside his pants and I did not think ANYTHING OF IT. Is this my life now? Whatever, we have shirts with Shania’s face on the front AND back that we paid basically nothing for….that’s all that matters. Oh & here is a picture of my dog in my Shania shirt. Good times.
Until next time, I hope you are having an amazing week!
Last night was one of my favorite nights, ever. If you have the chance, RUN and see Shania Twain in concert; it was everything I could have dreamed of. I have always loved Shania, and the fact that I have friends that love her just as much as I do….is a blessing.

We were in the nosebleeds, literally the last row….so high up that I couldn’t breathe after walking up the stairs once (which actually may not be saying a lot at all coming from me #fitness), but we were in the same room as Shania Twain & that is ALL that matters. Our seats actually weren’t that bad at all, and we were loving every second of it. It was 10000% worth the 12 year wait to see her in concert, oh my goodness I can not even begin to explain to you how much I loved it. My friend Molly actually cried when she sang “You’re Still The One” yeah, that big of fan. It was so much fun knowing every word to every single song she sang, and I wish I had us singing “Any Man of Mine on video,” because you would understand why I have no voice today if you saw that. American Idol status. The LAST row ^ I could see Shania great, but when I looked at my iPhone today to check out the pictures I laughed out loud, they are absolutely terrible and grainy…So we won’t be posting those. I was so excited to get some quality pictures of us with her in the background, but they wouldn’t let me bring in my selfie stick….COME ON. So we hid it in a bush and went on our way, selfie stick-less. I’ve also officially decided that I want to become a Shania groupie, and now meeting her is definitely on my bucket list….Who can make this happen for me?????;) None of us could not handle how amazing she looked, and she REALLY makes me want to wear thigh high boots and bedazzled jumpsuits, because that is definitely a practical outfit. & since I attempted to document her outfits and failed, here are two of my favorites from last night….Straaaaaight from her website.
I. Love. Her. Okay, I am going to wrap up this blogpost because this is getting a little of hand….I love her clothes, I love her blonde hair, I love her music. Shania Twain is goals. Okay. There we go. I hope you had a great weekend!
End Table | Mirror | My Side Pillow | Bed Set | You Look Good | Geo Light Pendant
I totally don’t need another end table, but this one is so pretty and it has Maryssa written allllll up on it. Same with the mirror, it is meant to be on my wall. There are two things that I can’t have enough of when it comes to decorating: mirrors, and pillows. So naturally, I need to add a few more to my collection;) Really I could go through and explain each and every item I linked, but that’s boring and not fun….Hard pass. I hope you have the BEST weekend, I get to see Shania Twain in concert Sunday; & that’s just about as fun as it gets:)
I really, really don’t know how to put into words how much our wedding day meant to me. The day was so full of love, laughter, and just a few tears….Also, the weather was absolutely PERFECT. I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time I went through the 2500 (yeesh) pictures. But, instead of being rambly, I will let the photos speak for themselves. Here is a look into our Best. Day. Ever.
I never knew you could love someone THIS much, but I am so blessed to have Shane in my life. We are soooo in loooooove and we don’t care who knows it! April 11th, 2015 was the first day of the rest of our lives, and to me, there is no better title than Mrs. Albert.
