Life Lately

My breast pump just arrived courtesy of my insurance (about freaking time something is covered). And I am already pretty sure that device will become my enemy. From the tubing to the washing/sterilizing instructions it looks like a lot of work! Let alone how to actually use it!
I was able to put together a little basket for David's first Father's Day
I had fun gathering up all the little items. I went with gloves (for dirty diapers), coffee (for late night feedings), a board book called The Pout Pout Fish because David loves to fish, Mike & Ike's (his fav), an "I love Daddy" pacifier, Honest diapers & a Daddy's snuggle bunny tee.

I saw that somehow I missed these went on sale at Nordstrom's and was so bummed as this is the exact pair I have been wanting for years now. How could I have missed them going 50% off?
So then I had the brainchild to contact Tory Burch to see if they would price match. I assumed the answer would be no since Nordstrom had been sold out for well over a month. They were on sale at Tory Burch but for $180 - which is so not $112. Well as of Friday these were still on Nordstrom's site (which sadly they no longer are) so Tory Burch honored the price!! Pretty happy girl! It always pays to ask!

  1. Cute basket! I felt the same way about my breast pump, and hated using it (sorry to be a downer haha) but it was so much work each time, ugh. Maybe you wont mind it though. I know plenty of people that didn't mind using them. And how awesome about your shoes! Congrats!!

  11. The breast pump is probably going to be my worst nightmare...especially cleaning it! Not looking forward to it.

    That's awesome that Tory Burch matched Nordstrom's price...good thing you asked!

  12. Um heck yea to the Torys working out! My friend that was in town this weekend has this exact same pump. Girl friend hooks it up every 3 hours like clock work and I asked her a bazillion questions hah. Love the little basket - such great ideas!

  13. THE MEDELA will be your BEST FRIEND, or BREAST FRIEND. I exclusive pumped after about 6 weeks. PUMPING was just my thing. Anyway, it really is not as complicated as it looks. You just need to clean the two cone pieces and valves (I think that is what they are called). Oh, and the bottles, DUH. DON'T wash the tubing or anything else. DO NOT WASH THE TUBING. I did and it created mildew in the tubes. BLECH. And look at you savvy shopper!

  15. I've never asked for a price match, but I think I'm going to have to start doing so! I can't believe you got those Tory's for such a good deal! Jealous!

  16. Woohoo on the flats score!! Don't worry I promise the breast pump gets easier to use!! I had a love hate relationship with mine- I hated being hooked up to it and felt like a machine but it usually meant I had some freedom to go out and have some drinks!! Hahaha

  18. That was such an amazing deal! Now I'm I'm super sad that I missed out on the shoes...I could really go for a new pair of neutral Revas!

  19. the pump looks complicated but after you use it one you get the hang of it and it really can be a lifesaver so that if you need to run out to get something quickly you can because there is a bottle of milk in the frig for your husband to feed!
