Back in Ballet

Charlie and I attempted a Mommy and me ballet class about a year ago. Although she LOVED the class she wasn't old enough to necessary understand that it wasn't okay to not follow the rules. I didn't want to punish her for not getting it so we stepped back until she got older.

This evening was her first class back in Tippi Toes. It was so much more successful and as expected she absolutely loved it. To top it off she gets to dance with her best twin friends; Sophie and Campbell.

My Baby is No Longer a Baby

Within a month our baby has gone from wearing diapers and sleeping in her crib to a pantie wearing little girl who sleeps in a queen bed. Although I am proud of Charlie and the milestones she has accomplished I am sad. I am sad I will never see her curled up in a crib and I am sad I will never see her running around outside as a diaper baby ever again.

I could eat up that wedgie bottom

Whelp... I celebrated the return of Mother's Day Out way too soon. Charlie has strep. Yup, strep in August. She came home Tuesday from school with a fever that kept escalated so we took her to the after hours clinic that night. They confirmed our suspicions with a positive strep test. She was the fifth positive strep in the 3 hours so wash, wash, wash those hands. I guess we will try MDO again next week.... Boo

Girls Weekend 2013

Every year my three best girlfriends and I attempt to have a girls weekend. It doesn't always happen so we are thankful when it does. Last weekend we took advantage of the fact my parents have a house at the lake so off to Grand Lake we went. To say it was a wonderful weekend is an understatement. I am already to do it again.

Hard to drive away from these two

Waiting on Sarah's footsies to arrive

You know where to find us

Literally best friends for well over 10 years

Who knows but I do know I am dressed

The preggos head out for a very relaxing ride

We made it!!!! Charlie and I made it through the summer without Mother's Day Out for weeks and it was as hard as it sounds. It is so nice to begin to get back in the routine of things. We start ballet and Mom's Bible study in the next few weeks as well.


Best picture I could get of our busy gal

New House Update #3

Our latest project around the house has been Charlie's big girl room. It is somewhat complete. I still have a throw on back order, pictures to hang, and accessories to buy but you get the idea. I really love the room because it fits our girl's personality to a tee. It is fun, colorful, and girly all at the same time. I have to say this has been the most fun project so far. I will post complete pictures up in a few weeks.

Love this window seat. Looking for colorful pillows to add

Found this dresser at an antique store. Obviously need to add accessories and a picture above

We lost our wonderful toy storage in the move so Josh added shelves to one of her closets so we can hide her toys

A Party for your Head

I wear my hair in a lazy ponytail nearly every single day. It becomes sloppy looking but when it is this hot outside I am not going to have my thick hair making me hotter. But lets be honest, I wont do my hair this winter either. I have been on a massive search to find a way to spruce up my hair and Anthropolgie was the answer. I literally couldn't have purchased on of each but these are the ones I got and love.

These headbands are wired and they twist around your head. It is a bit hard to explain but you just wrap it around your head and knot it up top:

These are turban style headbands:

So if you are in search of fun hair accessories you should check out Anthropologie.
