friday favorites

Happy Friday! Dustin took today off work so this morning I got some girl time with Olivia and Penelope while Della was napping at home, a great way to start any day! All 3 girls just miraculously went down for their naps so I have a few minutes to blog before Dustin and I have lunch together in the backyard. He went to pick up one of our favorite lunches, the parmesan-crusted milano salad from Biaggi's. If you guys have one near you, seriously it is so good!! Tonight I have a girls spa night with my girlfriends and I cannot wait for that either! Definitely a fun weekend so far!

It's been awhile since a Friday Favorites post has gone up and I have so many things to share!

one | I get asked often what my favorite diaper bag is and hands down I say Fawn Design every time. I was first introduced to the brand when Penelope was born in 2015 and used a black Fawn bag and loved it. It has the perfect amount of space for 2+ kids, still room for my stuff and tons of pockets which = organization, my favorite thing ever. I've tried many different diaper bags over the past 4 years and keep going back to my Fawn bags. This Fall I've been loving their Gray bag because it matches everything. I recommend them to every new mom because if a diaper bag is not only functional but stylish, total win!

two | On the theme of my favorite things for motherhood, we have these glass bottles for Della and I absolutely love them. We used Dr. Brown's bottles for our first two girls but I really wanted to switch to glass when Adaline was born and they are as amazing as I hoped they would be. I picked them up when they had a friends & family sale and after my discount ended up getting the whole set for $40 plus free shipping, so watch for sales to scoop them up! They would make a great gift for a new Mama as well.

three | Our favorite hair clips for the girls are from Ryan & Wren. Poppy and Olivia wear them daily and I always make sure to have a few in my diaper bag when we are out and about. Over the past few years I've had a chance to design some festive clip sets with the owner Mary, who is so wonderful. The clips come in so many fun colors and the glitter ones are the girls' favorites!

four | Fall is the perfect time to pull out a Gathre mat for outdoor activities or indoor art, picnics and playtime as the temperatures drop. We love them and use ours daily (our favorite sizes are the Midi and Maxi). Enter ABLESSEDNEST at checkout for 15% off your purchase at Gathre through the end of the month.

five | We may be getting a little ahead of ourselves as far as the seasons go, but I recently picked up this book for Olivia and we are both loving it. It is illustrated by one of my favorite artists and both the pictures and text are just darling. 

six | Now that summer is over, I am in full-on purging mode, getting rid of most of the girls' outgrown clothes, selecting a few of my favorite pieces to hold on to for next season for their sisters and then adding some new pieces in to their wardrobes. I also pulled out all our fall boots, cozy socks & winter knits and have been organizing it in their rooms and in our front entry. My favorite storage are the pom bins by Pehr designs. If you've been following for awhile you know I used a set of three pink pom ones for the girls' Easter baskets this year (here) and I also love them for toys, books, dolls, swaddle blankets and diapers & wipes. We have a few different sizes but the ones we have the most of are the pints and bins. I keep this one in Della's nursery with rolled up swaddles in it and the same one in Poppy's room with her dolls. This size is perfect for the girls' hats, scarves and gloves in our entry way as well as their shoes and boots. 

seven | Another question I get a lot via DM are my favorite dishware for the girls. Hands down, Replay Recycled is our absolute favorite. All their products are made out of recycled milk jugs, are dishwasher safe and super durable, even with three little ones! We have been using their divided plates, bowls and utensils since Olivia was little and they have expanded their line since to offer so many new colors (including amethyst and teal) and products. As for drinkware, each of our girls have an ELLO Luna water bottle in different colors and we love them! I shared about them a few months ago when we first got them and recently added this purple one for Della. They are a great size, dishwasher safe and the straw makes it easy for kids of all ages to use, even our littlest lady. W

eight | I picked up flannel sheets this week in the gray stripe print for Olivia's bed and can't wait to get them on this weekend so its extra cozy! I also love these (on sale!) and these for a toddler bed.

nine | My favorite swaddle blankets from Max + Moose release in 3 new colors on Sunday -- birch (my fav!), maple & blue spruce. I have used just about every swaddle out there since Olivia was born and Max + Moose remain my favorite. Think of them as your favorite tee in blanket form -- they are cozy, soft, have just the right amount of stretch and are great for tiny babies through childhood. All our girls love them and our collection is ever-growing!! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and if you have any favorite things we need to try, be sure to share them below or send me an email or DM! XO
