Her mini style..........

So last week we talked about how we like our little men dressed, so I though it only fair this week we chat about the little ladies.

Hmm.... how would I describe Taylor's style? I definitely like more traditional, but I tend to let her wear some modern tossed in the mix as well. Sometimes the modern stuff can be so cute on little girls. But when it comes to shoes I always keep it traditional. I love white, gold, pink or sliver and that's about the only colors I will ever choose for her.

Thank you once again Nordsrtom for doing it right in the little girls shoe department. I had a hard time choosing just one summer sandal this year so I ended up with these and these.

While shopping for her sandals I couldn't resist this sweet dress. I like to think it looks modern traditional. And yes, I just made that up ha! How sweet is this dress and bloomers in the same pattern.

Ok enough rabbling, here's my little mini modeling her new wardrobe. I know she's mine, but I could just eat her up!
(Her dress is a 2t and I think it runs tts).





I had to include my little dude in this one. I love how sweet and Easter ready they look here. They were ready to hit the egg hunt!

Here are a few more of my favorite "color selected" sandals I love for little girls!
Ok, I may make an exception with my colors for these

It was a good one.........

What a beautiful weekend we had! Things are about to get busy around here for the next couple weeks, so this laid back time with my family was just what I needed. Todd and I looked at each other last night after dinner and we both just smiled. He then said, "It's been a good weekend hasn't it?"and I responded, "It's been really good!". Why do weekends have to come and go so fast?

Prepare yourself for picture overload guys :) 

{P.S. Make sure you checkout the new lust list tab. I added some amazing new things, like this dress this dress, and this tank}.

Now back to the weekend............


On Friday night we celebrated one of my dear friends turning another year beautiful ;) Lauren, I love you, and had so much fun celebrating with you!!


On Saturday morning our neighborhood put on the cutest Easter party. They had 1000+ eggs, a bunny, jump castles, face painting, balloon making, and food trucks. It was pretty neat and the kids had a blast. I feel so blessed that my children get to grow up with all these fun things and wonderful people.





On Saturday afternoon we grilled out and planted our garden. I am so excited about all the fresh veggies and peppers!!!

Then on Sunday we packed up and headed to the beach! It's pretty much our happy place! There is no place I would rather be than on the beach with my family. The waves, the sand, and smiling happy babies. Nothing can beat it!!!












The kids are on Spring Break this week!!! We have a few playdates planned, some pool time, and we may even go back to the beach. And tonight, Carson, Todd, and I have a date to see Rio 2 :)
Happy Monday guys!!

5 on Friday........

Hello Lovies!! It's Friday and the weather is absolutely beautiful here!! I am feeling so happy and grateful today! I love it when I wake up feeling this way!
{Maybe it's the new drugs, but hey, whatever it is I am feeling happy and I like it}.

Since I missed my lust list on Thursday, I have a few finds I must share with you. So, sit down and prepare yourself for some goodness!!!

1). I am drooling, and I mean drooling over the new Lilly Pulitzer print! I really want everything in it, but this blouse is definitely a front runner. Would be so fabulous with white jeans! In for a close second and third are these two!

{ps today on Rue la la Ella Moss will be on at ll:00 and Lilly Pulitzer gifts at 3:00. Click here to shop}.








2.) 
I know I talk about these two playing together a lot, but they are just so sweet together right now! Don't get me wrong they fight a ton too, but moments like these melt my heart! I hope they always love each other this much!






3). I am having a black shoe crisis and need y'alls help! No really, it would mean a lot if you just comment real quick and tell me which to choose, or which you like the best! I have a problem when it comes to making decisions!!! I know, real world problems right?!



4). We have lots of fun plans this weekend!! An adult birthday party Friday night, Easter egg hunt on Saturday, and plans to replant our garden on Sunday!!! Yay for fun plans with the family for the weekend!!!! And to get you in the Easter spirit how cute does Tay look in her outfit from last year? She is such a tiny little bean ;) 

Outfit old shoes here. Seriously, the most precious gold shoes ever!


5). Last, how gorgeous are these Easter eggs? I really, really want to make them, but who am I kidding it's Ninja Turtle eggs for the win over here ;)

Preppy Style.......

So I don't think it's a big secret I like my men dressed preppy. I always have and always will.  As soon as I found out Carson was a boy there was no doubt what his wardrobe would look like. The older he gets the harder it gets, especially in the shoe department!

It can be kinda hard to find a "cool" shoe that looks good and that goes with most outfits. Again, especially with boys! 

Luckily Nordstrom has us covered once again! A preppy mama's dream come true! Really though, they have them all. From play shoes, church shoes, running shoes, and even cool flops for the summer. Thanks Nordstrom for making kid shoe shopping so easy!!! 

Carson and I are both loving his new Toms!









Carson's outfit details:

Here are a few more of my favorite summer shoes for boys! Carson actually just grew out of his Rainbows so these will definitely be making the cut!


What's your style when it comes to your little guy? I would love to know!

New Blog Design + Easter Ready.........

Did you guys notice the changes around my little old blog?!? 

I've gotta say, I am pretty smitten! Sara is pretty much the bee knees when it comes to design, and the girl gave me everything I wanted and more (and let me tell you, I was a pain in the ass). She really is the sweetest, most adorable gal around, and just plain talented! So, if you're in the market for a new design,  a few updates, or even business cards, Sara is the girl you need to contact! Can not wait to share with you guys my business cards she created, they are perfect!!! Oh yeah, and she writes an amazing blog herself, go check it out here!!! 

Isn't she the cutest!?!

Are you guys Easter ready? I can honestly say for once in my life I feel ready for a holiday! I have everyone's outfit ready to rock and roll, and I even have the kids Easter baskets stuffed and ready! Now don't go thinking I have it all together by any means because yesterday I forgot to put on underwear, brush my teeth, and I lost my car keys ;) 

But hey, mamas got her Easter dress!!!
