I know it's Tuesday, but I am still recovering from last week and this past weekend! It was such an amazing weekend spent with family and friends. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law very kindly threw us a 'sprinkle' to celebrate our little one this past Saturday. My husband and I went through a lot of struggle to get to this point and it was very hard for us emotionally, at times. To be able to celebrate and have others celebrate with us felt amazing. Like seeing the finish line in sight after a grueling race. For me, I felt like it was the start of developing some closure to this entire IVF process.

Stocking the Freezer Before Travel with Ling Ling

This post was sponsored by Ling Ling as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

One of the hardest things for me, before traveling is clearing out the refrigerator. It's difficult planning meals out with minimal to no leftovers and clearing out all the random things while making sure you have just enough to last you until you leave for your trip. I also like to stock our freezer with a few meals I can heat up once we get back. Unpacking and getting everything put away takes a lot of time so I've found it is very convenient to pull something out of the freezer for a few nights when we get back instead of cooking something up myself. I'll be honest, after taking a vacation from cooking it also takes me a few takes to build the motivation to start it up again!

Claire's Strasburg Childrens Dress

Strasburg Childrens review, Caroline Lace Dress
Two years ago, Claire wore a Strasburg Childrens dress for my sister-in-laws wedding rehearsal dinner and a couple weddings we attended that summer. You can see her dress here. She still loves that dress and since it was a pretty soft blue, calls it her Cinderella dress. We have some events coming up including another wedding, and a baby sprinkle my sweet sister-in-law is throwing us. So we wanted Claire to have a special dress for these days. She had the opportunity to pick one of Strasburg Childrens Charleston Summer Beach Collection again and chose the Caroline Lace Dress in lavender this time.
