Friday Can’t Live Without It Link Up

I read a lot of blogs. More than I can actually keep up with- but lord do I try! And my blog feed has definitely morphed over the last couple months from all home decor blogs to all the cuteness and honesty of some fabulous Mommy blogs. But a couple have stood the test of time and one is Newlyweds:North.

Stephanie over at Newlyweds:North along with Laura and Cait are hosting a Friday Link Up and the topic of choice is “Can’t Live Without It.” There are sooo many things I feel I can’t live without but thinking about this past week the one that comes to mind is…

Fresh air.

There’s no denying that this was a beast of a winter. Combine that with having a baby at the end of December and yes, I’ve been hibernating for the last 3 months.

Temperatures finally broke into the 50s last week and after a total Momma-meltdown on Wednesday night, my Momma promptly took me and my babe out for a walk.

Best. remedy. ever.

It was literally around the block for maybe 15 minutes but it made a world of difference. A four o’clock walk, home for a tubby and bottle and my boy was out before I could get through the first verse of Wheels on the Bus. It was fantastic. And left time for Momma to have a much needed glass of wine and episode of House of Cards with Dada.


Here’s the boy looking like Roy Orbison. Such a cool dude. Jared got us out for a walk again on Saturday which broke up my Easter cleaning/set up madness. I’m looking forward to many more walks with this stud all summer. It really has the ability to transform my mood and I know Eli appreciates breaking free from his life of captivity.

So that’s my Can’t Live Without It for the week. Be sure to check out Newlyweds:North, Home Sweet Ruby, and Happily Ever Parker. They won’t disappoint. And hey, maybe these blogs will become your Can’t Live Without It this week.

  1. What a sweet little babe! I have a good friend who had a baby Dec. 1 and she said she has just hibernated. Scared for him to get sick and cold weather makes for a hermit! Thanks for linking up with us!! Have a great weekend!

    • Oh good, I’m not the only one imprisoning their newborn during cold and flu season! Glad to be a part of the link up! Thanks for hosting Laura!

  2. I’m so with you on the fresh air! After I has my son the one thing that made me feel so much better while recovering was going for a walk! Thank goodness for Spring! Thanks for linking up :)

    oh my goodness, thank you for the sweet words! and as a recovering northerner, can I just say that I could not relate more to your post! On the days when it was literally too cold to take the baby even to the car I thought I was going to lose it! thank you so much for linking up, we love having you! xoxo

  4. I can’t get over how awesome your baby looks in those sunglasses! Love! I totally agree with you about walks outside. So refreshing and necessary
