Ode a la Rose in Chicago

This weekend is Mother's Day. We're celebrating a little early in our house since I'm pinch hitting in a last minute marathon for a friend who came up injured. (More on that later.)

Look what came to my door today from Ode a la Rose!
I love fresh cut flowers, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why I don't get them more often. They are quite simply a joy to have around.
Sunday is Mother's Day, don't forget mom! Get your last minute orders in stat! (You can also find Ode a la Rose on FB and IG)

Ready For The Rain With #KamikStepOutside!

If April showers bring May flowers, I'm ready for some spring flowers up in here! That said, with our Kamik rain boots, we are not letting the rain in Chicago slow this family down. When we go out, we need our boots to:
  • Keep our feet dry
  • Be comfortable
  • Be stylish
I love that Kamik has a boot for EVERYONE in the family!
Benny is hard on rain boots.
He is LITERALLY always stomping in puddles. For him I chose the Stomp (Big Kid) boot. They fit perfectly, keep his feet dry and he loves them.
Mags is all about style.
Would you believe she and I are only ONE size away from each other?!
She and I both got the Jennifer women's boot.
They are perfect for rainy Chicago days AND your feet will stay dry even if the wind turns your umbrella inside out!
Andy says his Lars boot are the most comfortable rain boots he's ever owned and he LOVES them!

If you're on the look out for rain boots for the whole family, you can find Kamik's everywhere. Check out their store locator. You can also check them out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The rain just keeps on coming in Chicago, BUT our feet will be dry with our Kamik boots!

*I received free rain boots for this review, all opinions are my own.

Sleeping Beauty

I have been putting off mattress shopping for too long. Do you know what I've found? Mattress shopping doesn't have to be hard OR expensive.
I got a new mattress from Best Choice Products. This bed shipped straight to my door neatly packed in a box. All we had to do was open it up and let it expand for 48 hours.
Fully expanded, it is about 6 inches thick. It is SO comfortable!
There's memory foam on the bottom and then a gel topper for coolness.
 The only problem I've found with my new bed, is that EVERYONE wants to sleep on it.
Even Mr. Kitty.
I'm NEVER going back to spring mattresses again. EVER!

Go check out Best Choice Products. This is the bed. I've got my eye on the Eames dining chairs next. SO much to choose from! Happy shopping!
