A little Lilac, with Smocking Bird Kids

Baby girl is 8 months old and I can’t believe time has gone by so quickly! She’s starting to eat more and more food and nurse less and less. Her favorite thing in the world is watermelon and I wonder if it’s because I ate so much of it when I was pregnant last summer with her. She loves to hang off my arm, and …

So clearly if you’ve been following along with me for a little while you would have noticed that I’m a sucker for cute little dresses. Why might you ask is this the one item I always gravitate towards for all occasions? I’ve broken it down for you point by point, if you aren’t a “dress” believer maybe you will consider these reasons for why it’s …

Exactly one more week till France and I’m still trying to organize exactly what I need versus what I want to bring with me. One thing I’m taking for sure are these heels. I think I wear them probably more than any other item in my closet right now. They match everything, are super comfy and the pink is so cute. They come in a …

Exploring the streets of Deep Ellum, and already found our new favorite sushi spot, Deep Sushi! We really wanted to sit somewhere outside and listen to live music, but once we stumbled on a sushi option we could hardly remember what the initial plan was supposed to be. Next time, out door patio and BBQ for sure though! Deep Ellum has a really relaxed vibe …

These sisters get along so well I can hardly believe it. Ok, they haven’t spent a whole lot of time together but the times they have shared have always gone so smoothly. I’m lucky that Annabelle is at an age where she is happy and willing to make an effort to play with a baby. Although I never leave them unattended for more than a …

Hello Sunshine

Hello Sunshine! And just like that we are almost back into the weekend! What is it about summer days flying past at a faster rate than any other season?! I was worried I wouldn’t have enough activities to keep the kids busy for these long summer days but actually filling up time has been no challenge at all. The kids have been really sweet and …

Baby Blue, with Smocking Bird Kids

It is fitting that Annabelle’s favorite color at the moment is violet. She tends to waver a little bit between all the pinkish, purplish hues of the rainbow, it’s hard to keep it all straight sometimes! Spending the Summer with her and not committing to a particular schedule has been pretty liberating I must say. Although having all three kids is not without its challenges, …

The long holiday weekend is over and it’s back to real life now! One new thing that I can really look forward to are Fridays! Not just for the obvious reason of being the weekend (although that’s great too!) but Michael and I are starting to have date nights more regularly now. We don’t do anything “crazy” but we get a bite to eat, try …

Red, White and Blue! HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! I am so looking forward to this long weekend! We are starting to build our own little family holiday traditions now. This weekend we will be doing lots of swimming, tanning, barbecuing and eating lots and lots of watermelon. I feel very lucky to be American and this country has provided so much for me and my family.  …
