Our Lately's

I've started an Etsy shop! 
 Crazy, I know.  But, I thought that other momma's out there might be in need of some sweet little bows for a great price (they're only $1.00 each), so I figured I would try it. 
Let me know if you're interested.  I have these 4 colors on hand ready to go, but I can get more colors for a custom order if you need something specific. 
See the button on my side bar that will send you straight to the shop!

On our way to Charleston last week. 
I just flipped Isla June around (2 weeks shy of her 2nd birthday) as she had an absolute hysterical fit going backwards after being forward facing while Baby Sam was riding in the car (the two seats couldn't be rear facing next to each other.)  So, we're trying it out.  She's thiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to to 30 lbs. She has a new obsession with climbing into the driver seat now, so we'll see how long this lasts.  Momma might whip her back around and just deal with the protesting. 

Playing in the Apple store.  She knows these IPads like the back of her hand.  It's crazy what this generation has a the tip of it's fingers.  I mean, I remember when the Internet first came out.  And cell phones.  I don't think she's going to believe me when I tell her that.  Or, she'll think I'm as old as a dinosaur.

Our day trip to Charleston completely wore her out.  She actually asked for "night night" music and blankie.  And then promptly fell asleep.

Oh, potty training.  You drive me crazy.  I keep meaning to write a post to chronicle our 5 day venture into potty training that went awry.  It's getting better now as she will sit on the toilet quite frequently without prompting, and she can do it herself.  Plus, she thinks flushing is so fun. 

She climbs on ours rear facing.  We're on the right track....

She found her bathing suit hanging up and decided, first thing in the morning, to put it on.  Over her PJ's.  And she needed her new shoes as well.  Not sure what her plan was for the wagon.
This was all before 8 am.

The next day, we headed to the beach.  It was packed.  It's officially summer break.

Watching for airplanes.

She's been insisting on wearing her bunny slippers lately.

Library day.  We love you, library.

Mommy's hat has become a new obsession.

New shoes from Gramma Lee.  Which she now refers to as her "Gramma Lee shoes"

We finished picking out all the colors and elements of our house we want to build.   It seems every time we take 2 steps forward, it's 5 steps back.  Maybe one day?

She made me "tantakes" from her sand table.

I've implemented cocktail hour around here.  And it included appetizers.  It's just one glass of red wine (and almond milk for Isla June), but it's fun and it motivates my husband to get home on time.

Sauteed Squash.  After a facebook chat with Amy and a phone call to my stepfather.  I'm excited to try different recipes with these farmer's market staples.

I think the obsession is back.....

She seriously wanted to jump in that fountain.  Took her shoes off for it and everything.

Happy Friday, friends!


  1. Those bunny slippers are too cute...where are they from?

    1. They were a gift from my sister in law, so I'm not sure. She got them in multiple sizes, so I know that bigger is an option if that helps. I'll try and find out from her where they can be found. I know etsy has a lot of cute knitted booties, so checking there might be a great start!

  2. Is this just the sweetest little blondie ever?? She looks the way I always imagined our daughters would look, with my husband being so blonde.

    congrats on the Etsy shop - I would totally buy some if I wasnt a Mom to a boy!

    1. HI Michelle! She is our little blondie now, but when she popped out, she was a brunette! HA!
      Enjoy your boys, I'm sure they are tons of wonderful fun!

  3. Adorbs. Love the green polka dotted dress! And the cocktail hour. We have cocktail hour TOO often round these parts :) Good luck with the squash, give us reviews!

    1. Thanks for all the tips! They didn't have any more squash or zuchinni at the Farmer's Market on Sat. :( Hopefully we will have some on Wednesday for me to try all the recipes you gave me!
      Love me some cocktail hour. :)


I love your comments!
