What I ate, wore, and loved Wednesday

Are you ready for this link up extravaganza?? As you know, I usually link up to the fabulous Jennifer @ Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday, and today is no different.

But I'm also linking up to The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore, and This Kind of Love for What I'm Loving!

So let's get started!

What I Wore: I'm really excited to show off this outfit! As a stay at home mom, I rarely have any reason to change out of my usual uniform of jeans and a tee. I mean, at least I don't stay in my PJs all day, right?

But last Thursday, Kaylee's school had their annual Open House, and as secretary of PTO, I felt like I should probably make myself a little more presentable.

It's amazing how much better I felt about myself for changing into something nicer than a t-shirt. I should really do it more often!
Jeans and belt: Decree, from JC Penney; Oxford shirt: Ralph Lauren, from Ralph Lauren; awesome bracelet: a Kaylee original.



What I'm loving:
 I'm loving half priced Easter candy! I got some Dove Chocolate Truffle eggs and they are delicious!
Unfortunately, I REALLY wanted some M&M specktacular eggs, but everywhere is sold out :(

I'm loving switching to my Escada limited edition summer scents. In the winter, I love Burberry Brit, but it's too heavy for summer. It's really not summery here yet, but a girl can dream. I love all the Escada summer perfumes! Stop by your nearby fragrance counter and try them!
I'm loving Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I never eat sugary cereals for breakfast, but I love this for a snack! I know there's nothing too good for you about cinnamon toast crunch, but I figure it's better than a big piece of cake or bowl of ice cream, right?

I'm loving my newest kitchen appliance! I'll have to devote a whole post to that baby :)

And of course, what I've been eating!





Thanks to a free coupon, I was recently given the opportunity to try Van's waffles. I'm not normally a big waffle fan, but I had heard lots of good things about Van's.
Van's has several different choices, but I opted to try flax, since everyone knows that flax is so good for you. The waffles are definitely pricier than your average box of Eggos, but the nutritionals are SO much better too. Two waffles is 200 calories, 6g of fiber and 5g of protein. There's also a decent amount of Vitamin A, C, and B6. Score!

The directions say you can heat them via the toaster, microwave or oven. I heated mine in the toaster oven, and 8 minutes later had some delicious waffles.
They were delicious! Great texture - sort of crispy on the outside and a little softer on the inside, and no frozen product weirdness at all. These were as good as homemade - except healthier and quicker! I would highly recommend these to anyone!
There are several more varieties I hope to try soon, like the Maple Waffles, the Multigrain Waffles, and the Vanilla Waffle Sticks. They also make French Toast sticks which sound great too.


Share the positivity!! What are you loving today??

  1. Super cute blog! Love it! I know exactly how you feel about the not dressing up thing. Since I started back up in college this year I constantly find myself in comfy PJs all the time on the weekends while I'm studying, and my makeup drawer often doesn't see the light of day. But I always feel so much better when I do make the effort so it's something I'm working on improving :)

  5. You look great! I know what you mean about being a jeans a tee kinda mom. In the summer it is better because I normally just throw on a sundress. I am trying to dress more presentable, but it is all about comfort for me!

  7. I am loving this post, lol!! Seriously, I don't have kids but if I'm not going anywhere, I live in yoga pants. It's amazing what some cute jeans and a nice shirt will do for my self esteem. I used to switch perfumes in the summer, but this year, I don't know if I can break my addiction to Coach's Poppy perfume, we'll see. And those waffles look yummy :-)
