Pre-Shopping:)

Hellooooo!!!!
I’ve been behind on my blogging this week…. I promise I’ll try to do better next week! I’ve had a lot going on and am still trying to figure out why Miss Libbey won’t sleep! Silly girl!
So, tomorrow Libbey and I are tagging along with my mom and a family friend to visit my sister at school and to do some outlet shopping! I thought I would do a little “pre-shopping” today, so I know what to look for tomorrow! Below are a few things I will be on the hunt for tomorrow!!!

20140424-104101.jpg
Loving this dress! I die for anything nautical!

20140424-104236.jpg
How cute would this be with colored pants and layered pearls?! So cute!!!

20140424-104430.jpg
Hello! This is going to be mine!! I would totally put this tee with cute denim shorts and white converse tennies! Cute and casual!

20140424-104807.jpg
I’m a sucker for anything with buttons! This dress is perfect for summer nights! Throw on a cute pair of wedges and you are good to go!

20140424-105312.jpg
I’m not a fan of short shorts,so these are the perfect length for me!

20140424-105723.jpg
I’m obsessed with this maxi dress!! I could live in maxi dresses!!! You can never have too many! (My husband might not agree:) )

20140424-105947.jpg
Miss Libbey so needs this outfit!! I can’t wait to have her chubby little thighs hang out all summer!!

20140424-110144.jpg
I also love this little number!!
I will probably end up buying more for Lib, than for myself! I can’t help it:)

20140424-110400.jpg
Dying over this denim romper!!!

Hopefully I see all this cute stuff tomorrow!!!
Thanks for reading:)

Seeing Spots

Happy Tuesday lovelies!!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend!
Miss Libbey had a great first Easter! She got 3 Easter baskets! Lucky girl! The weather was sooooo nice over the weekend! It felt amazing to finally break out wedges!! I was so excited about dressing Libbey up for mass and getting out the door in time that I forgot to take outfit pics! I have a few pics of my little family, so you can still see my outfit!

My pants are from Forever 21! I loooove them!! They are so comfy and cool!!
They aren’t online anymore, but these are very similar!!!
My shirt is from Target, but I got it over a year ago. You can seriously put almost any color with these pants!! Yellow would be super cute!! I was in a hurry and had to find a shirt that didn’t have to be ironed! Haha I think a flowy blouse would be cute!!!
I can’t find my necklace online anymore, but this and this would be cute with the polka dot pants!
Miss Libbey’s outfit was from Von Maur!

Bejeweled

Hola!
So, yesterday a friend and I took our little ones to see the Easter Bunny! I was afraid of what the outcome was going to be because Miss Libbey has a little bit of “stranger anxiety!” I was thinking a furry bunny would send her over the edge, but it was the total opposite! She was laughing and kicking her little legs!

I totally forgot I had the cute bejeweled sweater from J.Crew hanging in my closet!!! I had it all winter and didn’t wear it! I’m so mad at myself!! Is that a sign that I have too many clothes?! Nah!!!

Windy Wedding

Hello Again!!
So, don’t judge my pictures!! The pics are from a wedding on Saturday! I mentioned yesterday that the wedding was outside. Well, let’s just say that it was probably the windiest day of the year! The bride’s veil was wrapping around the groom’s neck and bird seed was hitting people in the face! It was craziness! I didn’t really get any good outfit pictures because of the crazy wind! My hair is everywhere in the pictures! Libbey looks cute though:)

A Few of My Pinterest Faves

Hiiii!!!!
So, by now you all know that I have a little girl that I am OBSESSED with:) I find myself spending less and less time in the kitchen the older she gets! (She is only 6 months, so my poor hubby will probably be eating pb&j for dinner by the time she is one! Oops!) But seriously, the older she gets the more fun we are having! She is laughing, pulling up, and definitely getting her own personality! So, really why would I want to miss out on that and spend time in the kitchen?! I have found that Pinterest is my life saver for quick dinners! Also, my crockpot has become my new BFF!
Below are a few of my favorite quick and easy recipes from Pinterest!

20140410-114409.jpg
This was sooooo easy and quite yummy!! It tastes a lot like chicken pot pie, but so much easier and faster to make! It is a perfect meal because you have your meat, veggies, and bread all in one!

20140410-120953.jpg
These oven tacos are aaaamazing!!!! I will make them over and over again!! Pour yourself a margarita and you are ready to eat!

20140410-121234.jpg
I have made this bubble up pizza multiple times!! I love anything that has to do with pizza though!

20140410-121602.jpg
This skillet lasagna is delish!! Pop some garlic bread in the oven and you are good to go!

Hope you enjoy!
