What I'm Wearing | Monday, 4/14/14

 I have been having fun styling some dressier pieces in a more casual way.  This lace dress wasn't seeing any activity because I always felt like I had to wear it alone and to something fancy.  Let's be real, I don't go anywhere fancy very often!  It just took a little thought to start styling it in a different way...

What I'm Wearing | Friday, 4/11/14

Someone told me I looked like Snow White today.  They didn't say it negatively, but I have to admit, I didn't dress this morning wanting to look like a Disney character.  
Hmmm...rethinking outfit...

What I'm Wearing | Thursday, 4/10/14

Warmer temperatures are bringing out bare legs again!  Woohoo!  That is one thing I love about warm weather - being able to quickly throw together a few pieces and walk out the door.  You don't have to layer and create coordinating ensembles quite so much...and I love the carefree-ness of it!

Now it's not summer yet, so I'm still layering!  The contrast of the scarf gives me even more of a pop of color in today's look.

What I'm Wearing | Wednesday, 4/9/14

Whoa... a whole week has gotten away from me since I last posted!
I'm taking on some additional responsibilities at work for the next 8 weeks along with getting some of our new staff up to speed on our product.  It makes for some busy days!

I was easing into Spring with this outfit.  Tights and tweed to compensate for the cooler temperatures and a bright sweater to remind myself of the colors Spring brings us!

What I'm Wearing | Wednesday 4-2-14

I just loved this outfit.  I did choose to wear my spring/summer dress on a day we got snow flurries, but whatever! :)  It IS officially Spring so it isn't like I can help what the weather decides to do!

This dress is several years old but I'm seeing eyelet pieces everywhere right now.  It is sleeveless but functions perfectly for me even in the summer because I still need a lightweight cardigan all of the time anyhow!  

For today, I tried to winterize this dress a bit ...the cardigan is dark and a heavier weight and of course the boots helped to keep my legs warm and the ensemble balanced.

What I'm Wearing | Tuesday 4-1-14

We had special services at my church last week and wow, that makes for a busy week!  Each one I was able to attend was refreshing (all while I was wrangling a busy baby - ha) and I'm thankful I made the effort to go!

I originally headed out with flats on.  I realized it was colder than I thought so ended up changing to the boots for the rest of the day.  I wore this cardigan and dress together last summer when I was home with Chase on maternity leave.  I just love the colors together and this dress is SO comfortable!

Chase Is 10 Months

You are OBSESSED with Daddy lately.  He can't walk out of the room without you knowing what he is doing and where he is going...and you still will attempt to follow him!  

You like Momma at nap time and bed time...and Momma still enjoys that cuddle time with you!

You are SO BUSY and INTO everything!  We definitely have to keep our eyes on you.  

You mimic so many sounds and things we say.  We are having so much fun watching you grown and learn new things!

You normally go to bed around 7:30/8:00 PM and get up around 7:30 AM.  You still take 2-3 naps a day.  Each is usually at least 1 hour.

You have 4 teeth now - two on top and two on bottom.

You have started smiling real big (showing your teeth) while wrinkling up your nose.  It is the cutest thing.  You also snort while doing this and it makes us laugh so hard!  You are such an entertainer already!

You chew on your bed now...lovely!  When I go in to get you from your naps or in the morning, you are always standing up in your crib just talking and banging away on the sides.

words you are saying:
  • dog
  • boo
  • NoNoNo!
  • Amen (at the end of his meal prayer)
  • ball
  • Dadda
  • Ma (this is a new one that I'm proud of!)
things you enjoy doing:
  • jabbering all of the time
  • waving...a lot
  • standing alone
  • love to play ball
  • going outside to see Hunter (dog)
  • making all kinds of facial expressions
  • eating table food
  • snorting
