Just had lunch with a few friends! One of them has a little boy and a nine month little girl! Libbey and Macie have already had a few play dates!  I can’t wait to see how Libbey interacts with other babies as she gets a little older!

Pink & Red

My little Libbey hasn’t felt well, since she she had her shots on Friday, which is why I have been MIA for a few days. She needed extra cuddles!! So, obviously we haven’t left the house, so I spent the last few days thinking about what to wear for Valentine’s Day! I love any excuse to wear lots of pink!!! Duuuuh!!! Plus, it is 3 days after my anniversary! J.D. and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary on February 11th!! Best two years of my life<3

The pink sweater and blouse are from JCrew Factory! They aren’t online, but check the stores! I just got them both last week in Austin!!! The wedges are Steve Madden from last year, but here are some I looove! The necklace is from a local flower shop, but love this! The skinnies are old, but like these and they are on sale!

I think this blouse is super festive! I got it at TJ Maxx, but this one is also cute! The black jeggings are old, but I like these and looove this hat!! The nude pumps are Steve Madden! Every girl needs a nude pump! My necklace is from Sam Moon, but I can’t find it online, but like this one!

20140123-101842.jpg

I am obsessed with polka dots! They are so classic! This dress is from Forever 21! I like this one!! The pumps are also from Forever 21, but they are old! These are cute! I also love this necklace!! I got the pink clutch at Target over the summer! This one is super cute!

Where have the last four months gone?!

Hello there lovely ladies!

I love Sundays! My little family and I usually relax, go to church, and spend the evening with my parents! Today I am spending most of the day unpacking and going to the grocery store..ugh…

I wanted to share a few pics of Miss Libbey with you guys! She turned four months old this week! Where has the time gone? I love every minute with my little lady! Can’t wait to watch her change and grow more and more! Below are a few pics from her check up on Friday and a few other pictures!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

My little family, along with my mom spent the last ten days in Austin, Texas! I did not want to come home. I loooooove Austin! I would seriously move there in a heart beat! Who knows, maybe one day we will! My mom’s side of the family all live in Austin, so we visit a couple times a year! Our trip to Texas was Libbey’s first road trip and she did fabulous! She is such a good little traveler! We spent our time with family lounging in or pj’s until 11, shopping, and drinking Starbucks! You will come to find that I am a Starbucks junkie and live to shop! Austin has some of my favorite places to shop and super cute boutiques!! I could shop all day everyday! Lib is becoming quite the shopper:) Below you will see some pics from our visit, along with a few outfits that I wore!! Enjoy!

We headed to Austin, Texas to visit my grandma and some other family. This is the first time for most of them to meet Libbey. The trip took about twice as long with a baby and a few minor delays with a window not wanting to roll back up. Libbey did good except for one melt down. I will take it! This is my take on a comfy travel outfit. What morning is complete without a white chocolate mocha too?

This picture makes me laugh, Libbey’s little head. haha

This was the first day in Texas at my grandmas who is still in the Christmas spirit, obviously. It wasn’t a very eventful day. It was rainy though which was just ANOTHER excuse to wear my boots for probably 5/7 days this week.

Hope you all are having a fab week!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you guys are staying warm! It is -11 degrees here today-brrr! Yesterday was the beginning of the majority of bad weather and the snow and I had a baby shower to host. Craziness, I know. Not many people ended up coming, but the decorations were super cute and my friend still had a really good time. I clearly had to wear my Hunter boots since since we had almost a foot of snow. I also put the liners in my boots to keep my feet toasty!

My little family and my mom are heading to Texas in the morning to visit family. Everyone is so excited to meet miss Libbey.

I didn’t get out much this weekend because of all of the snow, but I go for a quick trip with my best friend to pick up her wedding dress! Since there was snow I wore my hunter boots, DUH. Me and Amanda are obviously obsessed. I think we need more colors and styles. If only money grew on trees. I barely even got dressed this weekend, woops. You’re aloud to do that when there are snow storms though, right? I did get to babysit Libbey though while Amanda was hosting the baby shower. She was a happy baby!

We hope anyone else in a bad weather stays safe!

I’m throwing a baby shower for one of my close friends so I have been running a lot of errands. I am finishing up today so I wanted to be comfortable, yet put together. I love these pink wedged heels because not only do they make my outfit a little dressier, but are comfortable to wear for a longer period of time.

Hope everyone has a FAB Friday!
