Ten on Tuesday [No.60]

Y'all, I am on a roll with bringing my Ten on Tuesday posts back!
Honestly, I just really missed sharing with y'all and this is one of the simplest ways for me to actually put together a post that doesn't require lots of computer work (a v-hard thing to do with a busy almost  one year old!)
So let's jump into this week's roundup...
We had Charlie's one year pictures done this past week & I just need to know, do any other Mama's get stressed out about pictures like I do?
I guess it's not stress, it's more just anxiety.
You want the pictures to turn out well not only because you're spending time & money on them, but because you only have one opportunity to capture this moment in your little one's life-no pressure, right?!
Well, our photographer that we've been using lately, Tori with Little E Photography, did a wonderful job as always-even though Charlie is such a tough customer and proceeded to bawl when presented with his smash cake 😂
She salvaged the shoot and I cannot wait to see and share the finished product!
I just have to share this picture from this past Sunday afternoon.
We love to grill out over the weekend and we enjoy just sitting down on the patio, hanging out as a family.
On Sunday it was pretty warm so I decided to pull out the kiddie pool for Charlie & Forrest decided to take a dip too. They truly are the best of friends & I love watching them together!
 We had a slight reprieve in the weather here in Alabama with almost (dare I say?) Fall-like temps and the only word I can think to describe it is just glorious!
We absolutely take advantage of the cooler temps any time we get them & we enjoyed riding around the pasture spotting calves after bottle-feeding Minnie Pearl and then we came home and played in the yard before bath time.
 These two are just the best of friends!
My whole heart!
So Carter's is running a 50% off sale right now & I needed to pick up Charlie a few things for Fall/Winter, so I looked through their selection since they always have good staples and good pajamas and did a little shopping & I wanted to share the pieces I bought him!
Tiger Pajamas (I still love him in footies and they have the sizes we need!)
Long Sleeve Navy Pocket Tee (I love Carter's shirts for Charlie & I think this pocket tee would be so adorable with a masculine monogram on the pocket!)
Three-Pack of Dress Socks (I know I'll have to buy more socks for the winter, but I got a good deal on this 3 pack & I like the navy, gray, and khaki colors)
Football Long-Sleeve Shirt (Charlie had this in a onesie last year & I loved it so much that I picked it up in the shirt version)
Halloween Two-Piece Pajamas (I love Charlie in seasonal clothes & pjs and these are an inexpensive option that are so cute!)
I always look forward to seeing what Essie's seasonal collections are going to look like & this Fall 2019 collection is no different-I love the shades and the names!
My personal favorites are the far left, Home Grown which is a pretty warm peachy shade & Rust Worthy (second from the right), a beautiful rusty copper shimmer shade.
If you're a parent (or you frequent Target/their website/get their emails every single day/etc.) then you've probably already heard of their carseat trade-in event, but it's happening through September 13th!
All you have to do is bring in your old carseat (including booster seats, infant seats, carseat bases, and even expired or damaged seats) and they will give you a 20% off coupon to use on a new carseat, stroller, or select baby gear.
I don't really buy into the whole meal-kit services usually, but we got a really good Hello Fresh coupon in the mail and I decided to try it out this week...well, they sent the wrong box!
So, while they did credit the money back to my account I did still have the food so I thought we'd try these recipes out and this one, Sweet-as-Honey Chicken turned out SO yummy!
I wouldn't recommend getting it from Hello Fresh because this is easily a meal you could recreate at home & do it on a budget, but the way the chicken is cooked is something to take note of and I'll definitely save the recipe card to try it again sometime.
 Does anyone else agree that weekends are just the best?!
We still have normal farm chores to do of course (Minnie Pearl still needs her bottles!), but we try to be a little more low-key and just enjoy our little family.
Charlie likes to crawl up on his daddy and watch a little RFDTV before heading to the farm to get some excavator work done!
After going almost a full year without reading anything other than a magazine, I have finally been bitten by the reading bug again and have been devouring books over the past month.
I'm on my fourth book from August/September and can't wait to do a roundup for y'all soon-but until then, check out my current read and pick it up for yourself if you enjoy a little mystery with a strong female character!
I had to save these pictures for last because this is so exciting!
If you've read my monthly update posts for Charlie or my Empties posts then you will probably have noticed how much I love Aveeno products, especially the Aveeno baby products since Charlie had such sensitive skin when we first brought him home.
They were so kind to reach out & show us some love by sending a big package of goodies that we can't wait to dig into!
These lavender products will be perfect for Charlie's nighttime routine!
We love the Aveeno baby shampoo & I'm thrilled to get to test out their lotion and body wash-it will be awesome as the air starts to dry out and my skin dries out with it.
These are a must-have for our diaper bag; they're wonderful for those of you doing baby-led-weaning  too because you know how messy baby's can get while you're having lunch at a restaurant!
We are always outside in our family, so you know we have to be dutiful in covering ourselves & especially Charlie in sunscreen to protect our skin.
They actually sent a full size of the bottle of Aveeno Baby Sunscreen, which I shared with my sister since she's about to have a new baby in her house to protect, but y'all already know I love that product for Charlie and am excited to test out the stick.
My skin has been doing so much better, but after being out in the heat & sweating over the weekend it was a bit irritated. I'm thinking these gentle products, full of hydration will really help me recover.
And more products for Mama!
I love overnight products because all the require you to do is sleep, which is obviously a favorite of mine. I'm also really excited to test out their serum+primer because when skincare companies delve into makeup products, that is always interesting to me.

Wow, that was a big Tuesday roundup!
Let me know below what is going on with y'all-I'm dying to find out!
Until next time. . .
