I have to be honest here. Ever since becoming a mom, my style has changed. Bye bye to cut-off short shorts, mini skirts, open back crop tops, side boob (nonexistent) exposing camis, and etc. But that doesn’t necessarily mean my style has to suffer, I just modify it to fit this stage of my life – being a mom. I noticed that I started gravitating towards more of “mom clothes”, a little more covered up, a bit more practical, and a lot more comfortable. Ain’t nobody want to see me flashing my ta-tas bending down to pick Em up! 😛 However, mom style can be cute and appealing too, like this floral wrap dress from PinkBlush! I love the boho style of this dress with right amount of flare but still appropriate for a mom like me. The best part of this dress is that it can also be worn as a maternity dress! I’ll be sure to rock this piece when we are pregnant with a second baby (whenever that’ll be!) – it’s so comfy!
I’ve teamed up with PinkBlush to offer a $50 gift card to their store. For all you ladies looking for a chic, boho style apparel, head over to my Instagram for a chance to win the gift card to shop PinkBlush!
Looks like Easter Bunny came to town! Last weekend, our little posse got together for an Easter egg hunt. It was the cutest thing ever to see these little babes pickup the eggs and put them in their baskets. We even got to take a picture with the Easter bunny! I guess she prefers Easter bunny over Santa because she didn’t cry at all. She was actually super excited, kept saying “bunny, bunny, bunny” until it was her turn to take the picture. We traded in the eggs Emma picked up for some candy, it was her first time trying a lollipop. Needlessly to say, she loved it. She full blown cried when I tried to take it away. I guess lollipops are now exposed. 😉 Anyway, so glad to have these little friends of Emma nearby, they are so dang cute together! ❤
Hope everyone enjoys Easter weekend!
No, we are not pregnant. Haha. Now that’s out of the way, we attended our dear friends’ gender reveal party for their second baby! You probably saw tons of adorable pictures of Emma and her newest friend, Camden on my social media. Well, Camden is going to be a big brother and Emma will have another girlfriend in the neighborhood! All my girlfriends and I are super excited for the baby girl to join our gang this August. Can’t wait to meet the little nugget! 🙂
Ever since moving to our neighborhood, we made some really good friends. Without having family nearby, I’m so grateful for these girlfriends who are like family to us. And with all the babies close in age, there’s always lots of room for fun family time! After all, it takes a village to raise children! 🙂
Hello world! It’s been a long time since I last blogged. I’m going to do a winter recap post later to give an update on what’s been happening in our family, but for now… Hello, February!! February always seems a bit warmer due to Valentine’s day and all the love in the air. 😉 Steve and I are usually low key on Valentine’s day, but this year, I wanted to get him something special for being such a hardworking husband and dad! Thanks to my girlfriend in our neighborhood, we planned a golf weekend for our husbands! The weather could not have been better for the weekend, it was in the 70’s! Can you believe it? On Saturday, we went out for a family breakfast and spent some time at a golf range. The boys needed to practice their swing, and the babies had fun running around. Then on Sunday, we surprised them with a golf outing. Tee time was set, and we gathered two other dads together for their 18-hole golf outing! I think they definitely needed a guys day out! While the guys were at golfing, we had a little Valentine’s day photo session of the babies. Although it was a bit difficult to get all the mobile babies/toddlers together for a good picture, it turned out adorably cute! Thanks, Morgan for being our photographer and props manager. 🙂
Blowing a kiss. Mwah!
Too excited about blowing a kiss, Em? 😀
Valentine’s day was a regular week day for us, but with a sweet surprise! Steve had red roses delivered to the house which I was not expecting at all, and he came home with a gift! Steve is usually a practical gift giver, but he bought me a scarf – picked it out all on his own and everything, no hints at all! I was super touched because he usually asks me what I want, but this time around, it was all him! Bravo! We spent rest of the evening low key with dinner at home and calling it a night early. Hope you all had a great Valentine’s day!
One of my absolute favorite things to do is sending out Christmas cards to our family and friends. In the past, we did DIY family photos for our Christmas cards, but nowadays, it’s getting a bit difficult to take DIY pictures with a mobile toddler. Thankfully for this year, we did a photo swap with my friend and photographer, Morgan. We went to Boyce Farms, a Christmas tree farm to take our holiday photos, and it could not have gone any better! Emma was all smiles running around, super animated, playing with the jingle bells Morgan brought which made for the cutest pictures! Steve was also able to snag some cute shots of our babies together! I cannot get enough of these two little ladies, so adorable!
Em had a little accident when we got to the farm, so I had to change her pants at the last minute, but I tried to coordinate our outfits for the pictures – Steve and me wearing vests, and Emma and me matching with grey. Next year, I’ll spend a bit more time on our outfits so all three of us can match!
We also got our Christmas tree while we were there. We are still continuing with our family tradition of getting a real Christmas tree and a new ornament each year. This year, we got our ornament from the Christkindlmarket in Chicago.
We had a lot of fun taking these photos and picking out our Christmas tree. Big shout out to Morgan for making the photo session easy and even more fun!! We had a great time shooting your adorable family as well!
Em isn’t a fan of PDA 😉
I hope everyone has wonderful holidays full of love!
