That little look.

Remember: The sweet little look of a baby that loves his mama. You know the look. It's the look that says hold me, love on me, I'm yours and you're mine.

The first year of a baby they change so fast. In a month his expressions might change a bit and one day won't need me as much. For now, I'm going to soak in this little guy as much as possible.

Crazy for: Jeans

I love a good pair of jeans and so does my oldest son, Hudson. They can be worn almost all year round and can easily be dressed up or down. There are so many fits but I tend to stick with slim or skinny jeans on my boys. I also appreciate when jeans have an adjustable waist in them.

Here are some that I'm loving right now in all different price ranges:

1. Old Navy  2. H & M  3. GAP
4. Quiksilver  5. Mini Boden  6. Peek

Where is your favorite place to shop for jeans and what brand do you typically go for?

Stuck On You {review}

I briefly talked about this on Instagram but growing up with the name Summer, I never found souvenirs with my name on it. On road trips, I would always enter a new store thinking this will be the one but sadly, I was pretty much always disappointed. What I would have given to have my name on a cute little key chain, zipper pouch or water bottle.

And then I found Stuck On You. They are known for their great products like labels, lunchboxes, drink bottles, party supplies and even clothing but the greatest thing is everything can be personalized! Yes, no matter what your name is.

We got to check out their lunchbox and their drink bottle. Let's talk about the lunchbox first. You get to design it! First you choose the color, then the design (Parker really liked the robots) and of course you get to add a name. You can really tell how well it's made. I love that the outside is water repellant and made from a durable canvas. It has a little pocket on the front to add a sweet little note if you wanted. The inside has a nice lining that can be easy be wiped clean because with little ones, spills are inevitable.

The size of the lunchbox is great too. You could fit in a nice big snack for your kids while they are at summer camp or pack a hearty lunch for school. The drink bottle also fits inside perfectly.

Speaking of drink bottle, I love this thing. I'm getting my 4 year old to drink a lot more water! He loves that his name is on it and we discussed that we would just be putting water in it and that works for him. That's a win for both of us. The drink bottle can also be personalized with a design and name. He is so excited to use it at his upcoming soccer games!

As cooperative as he gets now days. :)

If you are looking for great personalized products for kids, I highly recommend Stuck On You. They will LOVE to see their name of their stuff.

These products were sent to me care of Stuck on You in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and pictures are 100% mine.

Almond Dip {recipe}

You guys, we are obsessed with this dip. It's so good with pita chips, veggies or you could even use it as a spread on sandwiches/wraps. It's really light but has such a good flavor. You could really add anything you wanted to make it your own!

-1 cup of raw almonds
-1/4 cup Tahini
-juice of 1 lemon
-2 tsp vinegar
-1 tbsp minced garlic
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1/4 cup water
salt and pepper

You can allow the raw almonds to soak over night to remove the skins or you can use them with the skin. I like to keep the skin on.

Put everything in a food processor except the olive oil. Start blending it and slowing add the olive oil in until creamy. You can serve it with a little more olive oil on top and some paprika.

It will last in the fridge for about 7 days but I bet you will want to eat it in one sitting!  :)

Crazy for: Stripes

I think stripes are one of my favorite things for the boys to wear. You can usually find them to match any occasion or holiday. I was recently going through their clothes and realized they have a bunch of striped tees but honestly, can you have too many? I think not!

Here are some stripes I'm loving at the moment:
