out like a lamb

30 March 2017


1. After Bosco gave Diego one of Phoebe's prized My Little Ponies to gnaw on. Proud? Very. Camp Crazy? Always. 

2. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the price of this romper and even though I'm really feeling baby boy vibes I couldn't resist - it came today and isn't cheaply made at all and I just saw the brand makes a whole bunch of super cute summer rompers -- in case you have a baby girl or are having one or know one or or OR.

3. I'm in the middle of reading My Not So Perfect Life which I'm liking (but expected to love! I guess there's still time) but snagged Everything We Keep for free on Amazon (Kindle edition - I just use the free phone app) and stayed up way too late to finish it so I guess it's safe to say I enjoyed it. Next up is America's First Daughter. There are a ton of great suggestions over on my Facebook page too.

4. One of my good friends just opened the sweetest shop in time for Easter! Her prices are some of the lowest I've seen and I asked her if I could share here and she said sure! And is giving readers a 10% discount with code: CAMPPATTON. Yay and bigger yay :)

5. Someone left a comment asking about my favorite mom blogs and I do have a list of blogs I frequent down a bit in my sidebar but it's in dire need of an update so if you've got a favorite mom (or other) blog - or if YOU have a blog that you post on with some regularity -- I'm all eyes!!!

6. Did you see this clip of Nick and Vanessa (Vanick?) playing a drinking game on Ellen? They don't agree on much but I'm still holding out hope that they live happily ever after like the hopeless idiot that I am ...

7. I posted about this in the Sale Rack group but there's an extra 50% off clearance sale (code: ALLMINE) going on at one of my favorite places to shop for Simon and the kids. They often run 40% off clearance but 50%? Yee haw. These tops are $8.50 and the girls wore the long sleeve version all fall/winter - so happy they came out with a warm weather style. 

Hope you've got some fun weekend plans in the works!!

Linking up with Kelly!

  1. For a mom blog suggestion, I highly recommend https://www.coffeeandcrumbs.net/ . Sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious, sometimes uplifting, sometimes all at once.

  2. So many of my favorite bloggers have stopped blogging! I'm keeping on keeping on in my mediocre mom blog fashion, though! Can't stop posting random pictures of chickens and babies, after all πŸ˜‚

  3. My blog is a start but I'm working on it! Having a baby and doing anything these days is a task in itself but prevail I shall.

  4. I LOVE America's First Daughter! If you're into the whole Hamilton craze I think it's a fun book and would also suggest The Hamilton Affair novel by Elizabeth Cobbs (the lazy readers' version of Ron Chernow's Hamilton book).

    I too have a blog (no post this week due to construction) that is part mom blog but I really am sharing it because I do book reviews/recommendations and I know you like to read. www.carriedawaydetroit.com

    Sidenote: I'm SO glad you returned to blogging <3

  7. Ohhh. Just finished Everything We Keep...Since I have my Kindle Unlimited Free Trial, I might as well binge on the sequel tonight. Have you started it? I'm never opposed to my mindless, fiction indulgence!

    And since you asked ;-) www.madefrank.com

  9. I am due with a girl in August so I snatched up a romper or two. Thanks for the tip :)

    I love the Modern Mrs. Darcy blog. She has a podcast called "What Should I Read Next" which has awesome book recommendations!!

  13. Do you know if Amazon Prime does any books on tape for free that I could listen to on my phone? I'm caught up on all my podcast and need entertainment for my dog walks!

  15. Pretty sure you have the main ones covered already! (tales of me & the husband, small things, aspiring kennedy) - do you read cup of jo? That's one of my faves.

    PS Here's a link to mine for anyone else perusing comments :) https://bohemianbright.wordpress.com/

  16. I recently returned to blogging, and it feels so good. Sometimes it's nice to take a break and remember why you enjoyed it in the first place! <3

  17. I've been a Camp reader for a couple years now πŸ™‹πŸ» And I've followed The Fike Life and Wilber Huset through here.


    I have a very humble (not-mom) blog at www.gemlife.me if anyone wants to pop over!

  18. I blog! If I could just do it as regularly as you do...! www.fivekindsofhappy.com

  19. Thanks for the tip on the free Kindle version of Everything We Keep. I also stayed up way too late reading it! I share your love of peplum and just ordered the embroidered chambray dress you linked from Old Navy the other day- so you are keeping us on trend. �� I adore your blog. It makes me laugh (with you, of course - I have three under 5), gives me great tips and it just feels like I'm chatting with a good friend. Thanks for sharing your life with us! Hope you are feeling well. You are a SUPER mama!!

  20. I always love your links posts! My sister and I actually have a blog, and we both have a little one. Our blog is part lifestyle, part events and Boston-area things, and part mom blog ;) http://thebostondaybook.com if you want to check it out!

  21. I mean, if you're looking for mom blogs that love some sneaky humor, I'm going to (shamelessly) plug myself: http://www.anuncomplicatedlifeblog.com just because I'm shameless like that.

    Have you read Big Little Lies? Because I just wrapped up the HBO show, and in keeping with my watch it before I read it vibe, I was thinking about Amazon'ing that one next... But only if it's as good as what I watched on TV!

  22. Love following along with you & your family happenings! My husband is a doctor as well (pediatrician) so I have been able to relate to some of your stories. :)

  23. I agree with you, I enjoyed "My Not So Perfect Life" more than her other books, but I didn't love it.

    Also, I'm not a mom blog, but I blog pretty regularly here: http://www.somethinggoodblog.com/
