All the things I’m loving so far in the month of April! Let me know your favorites down below.

Adidas Ultraboost Clima Shoes. THESE SHOES. Oh my gosh. I haven’t bought anything other than Nike shoes in years. I thought those were comfortable, but these are on another level. I want them in every single color. I currently have them in this easy blue. Easily the most comfortable and weightless shoes I have owned in years. I am not running in them, but I’ve walked MILES in them. Amazing.

Moana!! We are absolutely obsessed with Moana in this house. Max loves it. Eddie and I love it. We watch it every week and every single time we get in the car, Max asks to listen to Moana. We have the soundtrack memorized. The music is amazing and so catchy. The movie is so great!

As far as music, I can’t get enough of Slide by Calvin Harris. I also still continuously blast the mood booster playlist on Spotify daily.

MY OTHER RECIPES

DeLallo’s has these new vegetable marinades that we are DYING over. Eddie found them in the store last week and we’ve been using them almost everyday since we’re grilling nonstop thanks to not having a kitchen. My favorite is the sweet asian chili marinade. The flavors are unreal! I don’t see them on the site yet and I’m not sure if they are in grocery stores, but if you live in the Pittsburgh area, hightail it over to DeLallo and grab those marinades!

Also, with the kitchen under construction, I’ve been getting coffee out waaaaay more than I should be. I love the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew from Starbucks. I also tried the Coconut Cream from Dunkin, but when I order it, I have to get it *barely* sweet (like 1/4 of the sweetener) and with 1/2 of one cream! I swear otherwise it’s like drinking pure sugar and it comes out white because it has so much cream. Sometimes I just get iced black with a pump of coconut.

I am LOVING these Halogen long linen dusters for spring. I bought the blush and black ones, they are so light and the perfect weight for this weather. I also think they’d be cute in the summer with dresses and shorts!

Sam Edelman Ankle Strap Sandals. Ha, can you tell I did a big Nordstrom shop at the beginning of the month? I didn’t have a pair of block sandals and wanted something a little dressier. These are super comfortable to walk in! I wore them all day (well, about 6+ hours) last Saturday in NYC and my feet didn’t hurt a bit. I got them in the nude shade, but also really want the blue and pink!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I LOVED the Victoria Beckham launch at Target. The pink pants and top? The black dress with the bunny collar? Love. I also grabbed a TON of baby girl stuff since my brother and SIL are having a girl in July! Crazy aunt alert.

This isn’t a new purchase (I bought it last summer), but I’ve been back to using my Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack a ton this month and it’s SO wonderful and helpful to have a backpack with a toddler! It holds a million things (his water, my water, diapers, wipes, etc) and is so convenient. I love this one.
