Hi! Me again, with another amazing Risaroo Wovens woven wrap. This is their new print Lemonade, in a brand new color way – Mint. Mint Lemonade, which is also a perfect refreshing drink for this hot weather that we’ve been having. Yellow and green. It’s cushy and soft. Slight stretch. It’s breathable, airy. All the perfect qualities for a wrap.

I threw Tot up in a double hammock for about an hour and a half. We go walking around our neighborhood. Double hammock is our go to, with a base size wrap. He loves it and my daughter likes grabbing the tails to help. Tot is pretty weightless in this wrap. I had no issues with digging in the shoulders. It felt pretty cushy and held solid the entire walk.

Mint has a slight stretch. Each pass glides over and stretches a tad bit for the perfect tight carry. I had no issues with it relaxing during our usage. I didn’t have to readjust or fix any passes. Due to the stretch, I would consider this wrap ace bandage-y. I felt like it hugged us right out of the package. It hugged the curves, no issue – as you can tell from the seat in the picture above. There was no breaking in or anything, and it already felt that way. I can’t even imagine how much softer this wrap will get with time.

This wrap is Tencel and cotton – so it’s pretty easy to wash. I know Tencel can get a bit fuzzy with multiple washes, but I haven’t had that issue with RW. There are some pretty easy hacks out there to fix it, if it happens. Also, air drying afterwards really keeps that from happening. The Tencel does make this wrap so soft and airy though. It’s nice and smooth, with a bit of texture from the ecru pattern popping out.

It is also so FLOPPY. When I do the drop test, it just flops straight down. It’s not stiff at all. I love breaking in wraps, but when one comes all perfect and soft and ready to go – it’s exciting to me. It will only get better with time. Because of the pattern, I would be cautious of pulls. But with any woven wraps, it’s always possible, so be careful.

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣

My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣

  • Pretending there are fall vibes with 90° weather 🍁🍂🎃⁣

We melted at the pumpkin patch this weekend. Now we are hiding from smoke and hoping our power doesn’t go out. ⁣

How’s your weekend treating you?
  • Prism Black went live today and I’m so excited for them to get their new homes. This kaleidoscope weave is so grippy and textured. It really locks those passes in tight. 🌈 💎⁣

  • Corn mazes are our favorite 🌽 We try to stop at one every year and grab some photos at the pumpkin patch. The kids love the corn pit. I love listening to them get along and discuss the corn maze map and answer the trivia so we know which way to go. Such a great adventure. ⁣
