Make Time for what you want! #JordWatch

Morning Cuties,

This year I’m all about being in charge of my own time. Doing what I want to do and being more intentional with my time. The kids are on spring break and we decided to just stay home this year. Staycations can be a lot of fun if done right; so we decided to spend the day with them doing something they would enjoy. If you are in the DC Area and or a Wizard of Oz fan come close, no closer, like seriously come all the way close.

In life we make time for what we want and who we want. Now that I’ve decided to let go of a few things, I’ve shifted my focus and priorities. I also need to work on my time management, we’ll talk about that a little more, or not. But today I made time for my family, this dope party of four. My calendar is frequently full and I get comments like “How do you do it all?” The truth is simple, I make time for what I want and you should do the same.

JORD Watch Wood Watch JORDWatch

#JORDWATCH Style: Ely Color: Maple

And I like to be real stylish about my time, no matter what I’m doing. Thanks to the great folks at Jord, they do wood watches like no one else. Keeping with the wood theme we took the kids to Watkins Park to play. If you’re struggling to choose a new watch, Hotrate reviews can be really helpful.

Within the park is the Old Maryland Farm, they are home to this big fluffy bunny. He was really cute and he had lots of bunny friends.

As not to be out done by the bunny cuteness they had several beautiful peacocks. Did you know that peacocks are boys and girls are called peahens? I had no idea, school #fail.

My man child and a pony

I had to talk my son into taking this picture and the pony kept getting closer. He was smiling but was totally nervous laughter. They also had cows and donkeys in with the horses.

wood watch & peacock realness

This watch is very light weight and I freaking love it. So much so I forget that I’m even wearing it. It was sized just for my baby size wrist and that makes me love it even more. More important than comfort is style. Y’all know I like to be cute and stuff. This means my accouterments must be equally stellar.

My watch is the Ely Maple which is the natural color of the wood. It has been conditioned with natural Tung oil to prevent cracking. Jord offers this watch in several types of wood, you know because we need options. Fun Fact: Maple wood in this watch comes from Northeastern North America and made from the outer rings, also known as sapwood.

Fellas: Jord has watches for men and women this means *clears throat* Mother’s Day & Father’s Day gifts.

We had a good time at the farm, now it’s time to play. Note: This is a farm not a petting zoo.

This place is freaking magical, the ground is made of foam it seems. It’s soft and gives a bit. This is perfect for the little’s that haven’t quite mastered balance.

It is all in the details.

I love attention to detail; I was already excited to receive this watch. What I didn’t know is how dope the packaging would be. I’m so keeping this wooden box, because cute. The box just so happen to match my watch perfectly. Then it was wrapped around this cute little pillow that says Jord. Y’all know I love things with my name on it. Kudos to Jord for killing this branding game. I do however, still want a high end watch from somewhere like, I’ll have to save up first!!

Come on stylish wood watch box.

    Oh..what a cute theme park! I love the whole idea of the Wizard of Oz..The peacock looks so beautiful. The kids were definitely having fun from the look of things. The watch looks really nice too šŸ™‚ .

  2. Dana Carmel

    Very cute watch – I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wooden watch before. And you’re right – Jord’s branding game is on point! Your son looks just like you, btw – you could be twins!

    • MimiCuteLips

      Thanks Dana, I love a company that knows how to brand their products.
      He is my twin for sure, the older he gets the more he hates to hear it. I did all the work I want all of the credit. lol

  3. Chanel | Cultural Xplorer

    This is my first time seeing a wooden watch! I love the idea of it šŸ˜€ It looks like you and the kids had a great DC staycation – I personally LOVE staycations and try to do them as often as I can!

    • MimiCuteLips

      Chanel, I was new to them as well. I love wooden accessories so this was right on the money for me.
      I enjoy a good staycation as well, I don’t have to pack or spend as much money. There are so many local things that we’ve not done.

  4. Stacie

    Now that looks like a fun park! My gbaby would love it. I’ve been seeing a lot of nice Jord watches lately.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Stacie she totally would, even as an adult I was like wow. This is the coolest park I’ve ever visited. Jord is locking down the game.

  5. MJ

    I’m loving that park! We have a few nice ones around our town but they are a good drive which is sad. And the watch, I have one and I love it.

    • MimiCuteLips

      This is a first of this kind for us. It is only fifteen minutes from us which is nice.

    First of all that peacock is just gorgeous! I’ve always thought Jord watches were so cool looking but it wasn’t until my friend got one last year (and I saw them in person) that I realized just how amazing they looked! They’re so stylish.

  13. Chris Lewis

    The Jord watch looks like a beautiful watch. I could easily see myself wearing one for work and for casual occasions too. I checked out their website and love the variety that they have!
