Tonight we went and saw our baby's beautiful face on a 3D/4D scan. It's the first time they have seen baby since our dating scan and it was so special, levels of excitement here are indescribable. We also had a sneak peak of Quinn's baby (see stories) which melted me to my core, especially because she insisted on doing the same at 18months old when we saw Theo at his scan. One thing is for sure, we cannot wait to meet this precious soul ❤️
Our family is so excited for the 2017 @macys Thanksgiving Day Parade! We’ve been watching last years parade all morning!! Does your family watch it? ❤️ Thursday at 9am on NBC - so excited!! #macysparade#ad

You all know I love me some bargains, but lately with Christmas 🎄 just around the corner and THREE sprogs to cater to (all of whom are desperately spoiled and ask for things like, oh I don’t know, a trip to the DisneyWorld for their 7th birthday and parties at Center Parcs 😳😳) I have started really thinking about how to shop savvy. Tesco Direct is one of my favourite places to shop savvy for electronics and gifts this year, their bargains are epic. 💆🏼♀️
Here are a few tips:
✔️Look for own brand toys, they are often just as good and half the price.
✔️Shop offers, always check for them and grab them whilst they are hot 🔥
✔️Use your clubcard. All the years I’ve shopped at @tescofood and all the times I’ve worked with them and I STILL forget my clubcard. 🤦🏼♀️
✔️Check for their Price check symbol – it means you won’t find it cheaper in any other standard retailer.
✔️Check coupons and discount codes - @myvouchercodes is one of my fave places and I’ve just become their Tesco Direct ambassador! You can find the answer to win a £100 Tesco voucher this #BlackFriday, all you have to do is check out my top tips on the @myvouchercodes Tesco Direct page and answer this question: What do I recommend as my top tip!
Happy shopping! (Ad) #savvysquad#MummyForTheWin 💪🏻
I'm literally in survival mode. No, it's not the twins, yet. It's my satanic toddler. I don't know if it's teething or one of those mysterious toddler stages when your kid is beating you because you look in different direction, but I have to wait for my husband to come home to take a breakfast at 7 pm. Good news is that we'll make a lot of savings this Christmas because Santa doesn't like naughty kids. But it's not like they care 🙄.
🇫🇷 Je suis littéralement en Mode de survie. Non, ce n'est pas encore les jumeaux ! C'est mon bambin satanique. Je ne sais pas si c’est ces dents ou une de ces étapes mystérieuses où votre enfant vous bat parce que vous le regardez de travers. Mais, je dois attendre que mon mari rentre à la maison pour prendre un petit-déjeuner à 19 heures. La bonne nouvelle est que nous allons faire beaucoup d'économies à Noël parce que le Père Noël n'aime pas les vilains enfants.
The little things 👨👩👧❤️ (btw, her feet aren't that long lol)

I have been a Grade A sour puss today - I made incorrect orders for business supplies, shipped highly anticipated Lilly vinyl to our old address in Tennessee, and had to call not one but TWO state departments of revenue today. But, at the end of the day, all that mattered was a great report from my OB-GYN, watching my toddler collapse in a fit of giggles with her Daddy, snuggles with my (freshly bathed!) doggie, and settling into flannel sheets with a good book and a 3-wick candle. Tomorrow is a new day - and the first set of grandparents arrive - so bring it on!

Some of the stages in toddlerhood can be SO frustrating. I'm trying so hard to be calm and patient KNOWING this too will end. Keeping thankful that she isn't a twin because handling this one with her mischevious ways is certainly a bazillion times easier than when I was handling the twins mischevious ways at this age! "Get a baby lock" you may say. HAHAHAHAHAHA. I'll just leave it at that..
Trying to catch up on cleaning, do as much deep cleaning and de-cluttering as possible because I move on Jan 1st! Not a big move lol. Just to the other side of my duplex. This little girl is sure making this small transition HUGELY difficult though!
January 1st is just a small step to something big coming on later next year! I'm looking so forward to 2018!!!

#behindthescenes of a mom boss at work. Me sitting at home in #Nashville, running two businesses with mismatched socks and yoga pants (so glamorous, right?), surrounded by toys and the two cutest assistants all because of the INTERNET.
Beats the 8a-6p with a 2.5-hour commute I did for years before making the plunge.
Share a photo of your favorite place at home to get online and tell me how you #MakeTheInternet homey.

Currently learning how to have better balance in my life. Usually my days go smoother and my family is happier when I set a schedule. I set a time for everything and work best checking off my planner full of to-do boxes ☑️ I feel more accomplished, happy, and less frustrated. What is something you do to feel more balanced in your life? ✨ // #nourishtoflourish
These two look innocent but they drove me bonkers today. I tried to have an "inside day" but only lasted until 3pm and then we braved the DOWNPOUR so we could get some fresh air (ie. I could regain my sanity).
🎨 Do you have a creative hobby? 🎨
We landed in the Bay Area last night, were greeted by both my parents when we walked into baggage claim, I slept in my old room (like a rock), I woke up early and headed into San Francisco to visit the Pinterest headquarters. Then, I rushed home to watch my nephew and my sister rehearse for the Nutcracker (my sister is an amazing teacher at the ballet school we both went to growing up). From Pinterest-worthy projects to watching kids enjoy the magic of dance…….today has been an inspiring one. Somehow as adults, we forget to dream. We forget to imagine. We forget to create and experiment with the hustle and bustle of errands and to do lists standing in our way. .
After today, I’ve decided one of my goals for 2018 is to find 5 minutes a day to do something creative. But WHAT? Suggestions please? Do you draw? paint? knit? sculpt? .
This non-crafter needs all your tips! If you’re looking for me…..I’ll be on @pinterest. On December 12th, they’re releasing their Pinterest 100 for 2018. The top 100 ideas that we all need to try. I just need to pick ONE, right? #mypinterest#pinterestworkshop
