Friday Friends: Jackson in Virginia

This little guy is all set for a trip to the pool! And it's a good thing. Have you ever been to Virginia in the summer (h.o.t.)?

Sure Jackson, we'll have an organic Lil' Crunchie. Don't mind if we do!

Throwback Thursday: Pinch Me, I'm Cute

Let's take a trip back to August 2012 when Grace was 6 months old and sporting the cutest little crab bodysuit with matching pants (not shown here) and headband. One of my favorite pics of all time!

Throwback Thursday: Let's go to the pumpkin patch

This photo is not the most season appropriate, but it's cute. I mean, I agree that there's just something so wrong about even uttering the word "pumpkin" during the month of June, but here we are.

As you can see, Grace is not impressed. In fact, my original caption was this:
Yes Mom, let's go to this pumpkin patch. You know how that thrills me.
Amazingly this was all the handiwork of my mother in-law, Penny. So beautiful in person.


Until next time, #tbt!

On Wednesday We Wear Pink: Lemons

Romper - Carter's / Headband- Children's Place

Mom, I wish I could resist the mulch but it gets me every time.





A Ball Gown to the Playground

Here's Grace all dolled up at the Narragansett Playground. Why such a fancy dress for rolling around in the wood chips? Well it was Father's Day you see and we were fresh from a nice breakfast celebrating Grace's great-grandfather (aka Poppy) while Grace's Dada was living it up in Las Vegas, but that's for another blog. The Playground was a little spur of the moment and while I had another shirt for her to wear, it didn't seem appropriate to let her run around bottomless. So sacrifice this dress we did!

I wish I had taken some cute shots of her at breakfast, but she was feeling quite hangry (hungry+angry) and was taking it out on the crayons. Not typically behavior that mom bloggers such as myself care to flaunt around on blogs.
Dress - Koala Baby/ Shoes - Stride Rite
 One blueberry pancake later, Grace was ready to frolic happily again.
 Static and all.
 Especially with her crazy nut enabler, Nana. (See below) I found out this weekend that their favorite theme song is "Boom Boom Ain't It Great to be Crazy" Thanks Nana, you always know how to whip this little one into a frenzy.

Friday Friends: Kylie & Quinn

Hey there! We have siblings Kylie and Quinn on the blog today, coming to you straight from Delaware! These two are definitely ready for a summer stroll by the seaside! I love the nautical stripes on Kylie and you have to check out little Quinn's awesome shoes!

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink: +Throwback Thursday

That title right there. It blew your mind didn't it? Well here's a combo Wednesay/Thursday Pink/Throwback (and I'm talking about throwing it wayyy back to 1988 or so)

Here are my sister and I sporting complimentary frocks that more than likely were purchased straight out of the J.C Penney catalog (remember that monstrous book with all the toys?) I actually remember that dress vividly.

Josie has a pensive look while checking out cousin James's Twilight Turtle. Hmm, what does this button do?

Window Shopping: Preppy in Pink


Friday Friends: Little Lilianna

Meet pretty little lady Lily, Gracie's new BFF! 
Lily arrived in April and has hit the fashion parade ever since! 
Here she is in a beautiful paisley Vera Bradley print that I spotted right away.  

Tutti Frutti Ruffle Bodysuit, Vera Bradley
I love this picture of Lily. It so reminds me of both of her parents! A little spunky like her Mommy and  determined like her Daddy! I'm sure you can all agree that it's so amazing to see the offspring of your good friends, the bits and pieces of each personality. A little combo person!

And if you didn't quite get your Vera Bradley Baby fix yet, head on over to the site for more scrumptious items!

Throwback Thursday: Kicking Back with a Flamingo


It's no secret that I'm obsessed with flamingos. In fact I just returned from Miami where flamingo style is timeless and eternal. This TBT had to make an appearance because this was one of my favorite tees of Gracie's from last summer. I also adored these little Ralph Lauren velcro booties. I miss them.

Summer Style Season Begins

This weekend we had sizzling summer weather. Sizzling as in a few days at the 90F mark that is typically reserved for mid-July through mid-August, definitely not June 1st! I can't complain. I love the heat and it was a perfect excuse to outfit my new toddler in summer gear. This weekend we picked up a water table, splash pool (it's living at Nana's), sand toys, bathing suits, water shoes, rompers, and summer jammies. I think she's good for a little while! Now it's time to play!

As soon as it was completed, Grace was screeching with glee at her new water table. Her favorite activity? Taking things out and putting them back in. Maybe a bucket would have fit the bill just as well :)


The end of May marks the beginning of Summer Fridays at work. Summer Fridays mean I get out of work early and shop way too much. It's ok though, I think it's out of my system now.
Last Friday, I stopped by Garden City and visited Children's Place, Carter's, and Gap Kids. Great finds at all three, although Carter's was having a great sale on the casual rompers that I needed for Grace. At $6 each how could I resist??
