Friday Friends: Feast your eyes on these Fur Babies!

We'll spare you a lecture on Summer Safety and the importance of life jackets and the like today, but seriously - how cute are these dogs? These Boston Terriers are quintessential Maine sporting their new Canine Flotation Devices from L.L.Bean

Feel like you've seen a reference to Boston Terriers before? You have! Grace's Auntie V is the proud momma of Tika and Swarley and our only complaint is that we don't see more of them!

It's double trouble in the squirrel smock!

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink: In Hippo boxes??

I swear Toddlers reach a milestone development whereby they must attempt to curl themselves into every box and basket in the house, just like cats. No? Just my kid?

Kickoff to Summer!

Since this weekend officially kicks off summer, I thought I'd share my favorite outfits of last summer. 


Friday Friends: Blingin' Quinn

Beautiful Baby Quinn (5 mo) is ready to party!

To rock this high fashion look, add 1 faux fur vest, a tulle skirt, and of course sparkling Swarovski encrusted shoes!

Throwback Thursday: She has great taste in handbags

Throwback to Grace's favorite teething toy.

The girl has great taste in handbags. Here she is taking a bite out of my pink Longchamp at 8 months. This was a must-have item around that age. Luckily she grew out of it!

Derby Days

Derby Day means ladies donning the most fabulous hat they can find. In this case, Josie loved hers so much she event brought it to school on Monday to parade it around!

Hat, One of a Kind; Fleece with hearts, Old Navy; Polka dot cape, Wrapease; Jeans, Children's Place 

Before: Off to the Races!                After: All Derbied Out

Poor Grace, it just wasn't her day. Perhaps an event based around racing horses and hats just isn't her thing. Hats definitely aren't her thing, despite my best efforts. In fact, Grace hates Derby Hats so much, she couldn't even bare to look at either her Nana or Memere, each donning an impressive Derby creation. I guess we will have to file the Kentucky Derby under 'Grace is Not Impressed' and call it a day (see photo below, bottom right.).

At least I had the opportunity to put her in a fancy pink dress and cute and preppy argyle sweater (very Southern Chic)!
Pink and green Argyle sweater, Old Navy; Pink dress, Carters
