Life Lately

So here we are five days into my maternity leave prior to little babes arrival. Just some snapshots of what we have been up to while we wait for Presley to celebrate her birthday!
Puppy and bump snuggles. 
Lots of little clothing to wash!
Consuming ALL the watermelons!
A little DIY project!
And some indulgences :)
And here is a first world problem. I registered for and received this diaper bag that I love. 
But I went shopping with my mom at Macys and found this Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag for an unbelievable deal. It's regularly $298 but was marked down to $71 (crazy!). I also had a store credit so this cost me a whopping $33!
Problem is I really like both of them but feel silly keeping two. Which one should I keep? The Pottery Barn one has more pocket spaces but would be harder to clean. The Marc by Marc Jacobs one has exterior pockets and a cleanable outside.
Help a girl decide! 
I have a feeling I might just keep them both and alternate. 
Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

  1. For 33 dollars, I would keep them both! It might be nice to have an option to switch out diaper bags from time to time!

  2. Keep them both! Maybe the grey PB one could be dad's diaper bag??

  3. i like that you can clean the marc jacobs one BUT i actually like how the first one looks better. i say keep both. it'd be good to have an extra bag in case one gets dirty OR you can use it to travel or take to the gym. also the first one is something your husband might be okay walking around with. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. That is the probably the cutest load of laundry ever! haha! I like both bags but if you keep just one, I think I would go with the Marc Jacobs one if its easier to clean! I agree with Jillian, I feel like you could get use out of both though!

  5. I can't wait for Ms. Presley to make her debut! I like the MBMJ bag personally especially since it's easier to clean! And that price is redic!Life as I know it

  6. For that price, I would definitely keep them both and just alternate them. They are both way too adorable to take back! Presley will be here so very soon! How exciting!

  7. I would keep them both, but all I know about diaper bags is that I had to constantly carry them for my friend after she had her baby haha! And Finn looks adorable, is he getting excited too?

  9. Both! If it makes you feel any better, I have five :) I use my MJ one the most, but the other four get used as well, especially if we are going on a trip.

  10. I would keep them both :) The grey one looks great for the summer seasons and you can switch to the black one in the winter. You'll be carrying it around ALL the time and will want to switch it up once in a while so you don't get sick of them haha PS. your days pretty much are the same as mine haha. Just waitinggggg....

  11. Keep them both! From what I've heard - you can never have too many!! You could also use one as a 'daycare' diaper bag - that way it's ready to go each morning - and if you happen to have one of those days that you forget it at daycare - you have a backup!

  12. I think you'll be happy with both. You can alternate or you can use the Potterybarn as a beach bag. I have one similar to yours that I use as his beach bag and I still always need the diaper bag too!!

  13. I say keep both because they're both adorable and you never know, maybe hubby would rather use the PB one when he takes the babe out??

  14. Love all of this!!!! I think you should keep both diaper bags! it wouldn't hurt to have two and quite frankly, you got a great deal!

  15. Keep both bags for sure! Keep the Pottery Barn one in your car or when you are out with your hubby (it is more manly) and then use the Marc Jacobs one just for you! Do it girl and have a great weekend!

  16. Marc by Marc Jacobs all the way. But that's probably because I have expensive taste ;)
    LOVE both of them though, so I think you wouldn't lose with whichever one you do keep.

  17. Keep them both! You'll need them. I would use the PB one in the beginning and as she gets older and more into food, etc, use the MJ one since it's easier to clean.

  18. I want to snuggle your dog, so stinking precious! That face! And now, I'm craving ice cream.... Love your DIY, right up my alley!

  19. Aw Finny can't wait for P. Look at that face! Just keep both bags. The blue is great for every-day but the black is perfect for winter and "nicer" outings w/ baby!?

  22. Keep them both and alternate! I actually like the Pottery Barn one better, but they're both cute! Plus, the Pottery Barn one is a bit more masculine for David to carry :)

  25. I have the Marc Jacobs diaper bag and love it. The cross body strap is a must when you are also carrying the car seat. That is an amazing deal!
