    Snack Packing Tips + Family Friday Round-Up

    snack packing tips

    Charlie and I participated in a fun camping-related post for Momtastic that is live today, and I also shared some tips for how to pack the perfect snacks when sending your little to day camp. It was fun, and you can read the difference between my answers and his answers to the same camping-related questions :) We also got to try some of the new Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, and I must say they are am yummy as the famous Girl Scout Cookies they are inspired by. There is even one based on my favorite Thin Mints®. Exciting, right? Go check it out here.

    My other Momtastic post for the week: Stroller Shopping 101 – read the full post here.

    And if you want to see the winner of my Ultimate Goodies for Mom & Baby giveaway, go check the bottom of the original giveaway post here. Once a winner has been randomly selected it will display at the bottom of the giveaway in the entry box! Good luck to all who entered (there were A LOT of you!). I wish you all could win!

    Have a lovely weekend. xx

    Family Friday Round-Up

    Family Friday Round-up | Summer Family Fun on Oh Lovely DayHappy Friday! It’s already felt like summer around here and we’ve been enjoying it (I’ve mostly been hot, but also trying to enjoy it). We have just over two months before we add another baby boy to the family, so we’ve been checking things off our family bucket list (#bucketlistbeforebaby over on instagram). I’m also losing steam and energy as I enter my third trimester – one day I was feeling great and then someone turned off the energy switch. Oh, and this bump is getting big y’all. So, what’s new with you :)

    It’s been a while since I shared my mom + baby posts with you, and I’ve done a lot that I think you might like, so here ya go:

    DIY Washi Tape Gallery Wall

    DIY Washi Tape Gallery Wall on Oh Lovely Day

    I shared part of Charlie’s big boy room, and a super easy and kid-friendly room DIY over on Momtastic: a washi tape gallery wall. It is so easy with no heavy frames to buy or hang, and no worries of frames falling or glass breaking. Plus it is the perfect solution to our “no heavy items hung above the bed” since we live in earthquake territory. Head on over to see the full DIY, and leave some love if you like it will ya? I’ll be sharing another DIY I did for Charlie’s room next week too.

    art sources: Abraham Lincoln quote print / stag print / Macklemore lyric print / Be Brave print /map / whale print / trees print / Dr. Seuss quote
