#stoptryingtomakefetchhappen Saturday afternoon family movie date.  Best. Ever. Doodle Diary of a New Mom - if you're having a baby anytime soon, you're getting this book for a shower gift.  Love it!! #Outlander jewelry by @pretty_bookish - this #sassenach is verra excited! You can't tell here, but this little miss is boycotting substantial naps today.  Maybe some sunshine and fresh air will wear her out... 🌞 Oh Grand Rapids.  You get me. ❤ 🍺 Sweet dreams, sweet girl. ❤ <3 "Sorry lady, what are these naps of which you speak?"
