Mother’s Day

Fun at the Park

Hola!!! Hope all of you fabulous mothers out there had an aaaaaaaamazing weekend!! There is nothing more important than being a mom! I truly feel being a mother is my calling in life. I always thought I would be a small boutique owner or something else in the fashion world, but once I held Libbey in my arms for the first time I knew exactly what I was meant to do in life! I quit my full time job and vowed to be the best mom to my sweet little girl! Two years later my heart became even more full when I held my sweet Bennett for the first time! I may not brush my teeth until two in the afternoon and not wash my hair for a week, but I would not have it any other way! I feel so blessed that God chose me to be a mom! I was raised by a fabulous mom, so I feel I am the mother I am today because of my mom! My mother is the one of the sweetest, kind hearted, and loving people I know! She is my go to person for everything! She is my best friend! I love the way she looks at my kiddos! Her eyes light up when she sees them! She truly is someone special:)

On Saturday I packed up the kiddos and took them to a park that is about 45 minutes from home! Libbey told me she wanted to have a “nic nic,” so it thought why not spend the beautiful day at the park!

1st Mother’s Day

Helloooooo!!!!
Hope you guys had a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you fab moms out there!!
This year was my first Mother’s Day! I guess I was technically a mom last year because I was pregnant, but this year was extra special!! Being a mom is what I was meant to do with my life! I love everything about it ! Even the stinky diapers and having spit up on my clothes almost daily! She is truly a blessing! I seriously can’t imagine life without her!!! Last year I had an emergency appendectomy on Mother’s Day. I was just a little over 20 weeks along, so there was a chance I could have lost Libbey. She is a fighter and truly a miracle!
Libbey gave me a fabulous pair of Kate Spade wedges for Mother’s Day! I was so surprised!!! I will be wearing them ALL the time!!!

We spent yesterday with family! We went to mass in the morning followed by a cookout with JD’s family. Later, we went to a cookout at my parents’ house with my dad’s side of the family!!

My dress is from a Forever 21 from last summer! I love black! You can pretty much wear any color of shoe and accessory! Love this little lace number from Forever 21!
Below are a few picture from our day at the St.Louis on Saturday!!
Libbey loved the sea lions, fish, and giraffes! She was okay with the monkeys until they moved! We had a small melt down when she was very close to one behind the glass and it moved!
