Monday Mornings

Yesterday, I got the best gift ever….a Sunday NAP! Addie and I fell asleep after church and it was GLORIOUS. (Thank you, Brian!) The only downside to sleeping for a few hours is by bedtime…I was wide awake! 😉 Ha! So this morning, I was a little slooow moving. Thankfully, the girls didn’t mind at all. We found ourselves hanging out in their room, playing princesses and reading books, before they got ready for the day. 
Since we’re living in a furnished apartment, we didn’t bring too much of our own stuff with us. Addie’s crib came along, of course, and the other item I insisted on bringing was this blue cart (from HERE). It’s incredibly handy to have by the side of their beds. On the bottom basket, we keep all diaper wipes for easy access. The blankets tend to hang out in the middle with all the girls bows…and oh my heavens, they have so many bows! Yes, yes, I realize that’s my fault and it’s probably a problem, but whatever. 😉 The top row has bedtime essentials – all the girls favorite books (listed below!) and Oh Joy! for Target JOHNSON’S® baby lotion. I’m absolutely loving the playful patterns and prints, I’m a serious fan of Oh Joy! Like, she’s up there with Taylor Swift. 😉 The girls and I have been using this lotion for just about forever (I even bought it for myself throughout high school and college because I love the smell so much!) You can find this darling Oh Joy! +  JOHNSON’S® collection exclusively at Target and until 7/22/16 or until sold out!
Also, these fake peonies are my FAV. I love that they brighten up the room and I don’t have to throw them out when they die. Ha! I mentioned above that the girls LOVE reading books. Here are a few of our favorites: 
Pinkalicious (seriously, Ellie ADORES this book)
Secrets of the Seashore (awesome bedtime book to use with a flashlight!)  
Miniature copy of the Book of Mormon (Ellie carries this one around with her everywhere!) 
Big Animal Board Book (we read this one over and over and over again!) 
Grateful for nice and slow Monday mornings and superhero summer camps for Ellie, today! Also, so grateful to partner with Oh Joy! Target and Johnson’s® for this postI’m sharing #JOHNSONS in my life as part of a JOHNSON’S® sponsored series for Socialstars™. You can find all Oh Joy! for Johnson’s® products here and connect with Johnson’s® on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as well as Target on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter .
