Let's Get Personal | Three-Ohhh!

I recently turned the big 3-0. Maybe it's not a big deal, and I've been told so many times as I approached turning 30 that it's not that bad at all. That you really discover yourself and don't really care what others think anymore. You're... you. I'm like, Okay.. great! That makes me feel so much better. It really does. But right now, I'm not really there yet. I hope to get there. Do you want to know how I feel right now? Age is not just a number. It's how old I am!

7 Month Update + Nuby Soft Plush Activity Ball Giveaway


Doesn't it feel like this year is just flying by? It's almost September, and so many changes coming up! Jayden is starting kindergarten soon and Gabriel is 7 months (today) and just so active! He's learned to crawl (real fast but not completely on his knees yet). In addition to putting everything he gets his hands on in his mouth, he constantly needs to be entertained and your presence is required if you put him down otherwise he'll scream as if he's been abandoned. I mean seriously, scream blood murder. I'm always out purchasing toys, anything that will possibly keep him occupied, and quiet--haha.


We received the Nuby soft plush activity ball from our friends at Nuby and has definitely become a current favorite of ours because it has different activities on the ball that will keep him occupied for a good amount of time (not forever I'll say! Kids I tell ya--not kidding) We recently brought it on a family trip for fun play in the car and in the pack and play while at the hotel.


It consists of different textures and activities to help promote hand-eye coordination. There is a donkey plush character that has a stretch element and can be hidden in the ball's side compartment. The other side of the ball has the same stretch element with a rattle ring that Gabriel loves to gnaw on, multiple spots of crinkling and squeaky noise to stimulate his senses. He loves anything soft so sometimes he'll lay he head on it like a pillow--cuteness overload.

We've partnered with Nuby to giveaway to one lucky winner a Nuby Soft Plush Activity Ball of your own! Head over to my Instagram (@terrimyang) on how to enter. Giveaway will start 8/25 through 8/27 (11:59 p.m. CST)

Minneapolis Night Out | Smack Shack

Guest post by Bea (explorempls.com)

Who doesn’t love date night? If you are like me, I am always excited to spend one-on-one time with my husband and look forward to our nights out all week long. Sometimes I run into the predicament that I can’t choose where to go! Minneapolis has so many great restaurants and options it can feel overwhelming when you have to make a choice.

5 Month Update + Our Current Favorite Nuby Products

As I sit and look down at Gabriel everyday, I'm still in awe and cannot believe he's already hit the 5 month mark (that's almost half a year!) He's hit so many milestones this past month, including holding his own bottle, rolling over, teething, and starting solid foods. It's all so exciting, and you betcha momma's documenting every moment of it!

Farmer's Market Street Style | Chambray and Roses

What's better than spending a day browsing a farmer's market? (I would insert "on a sunny day" but it actually rained!) My friend Kellie (blogger at The Classy Artist) and I spent some time together with our little ones at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market, which is apparently the largest farmer's market in the Twin Cities area, however it was my first time there. When it comes to style, I knew right away I wanted to style a chambray button down top--and make it work with anything else!
