No longer a baby!?!

In just over a week my little angel is going to be one!!!  ONE!!  I still don’t think I can wrap my head around this.  Today was graduation day.  How have I already experienced a graduation with her.  lol.  She graduated from our Mommy & me class and it was such a bitter sweet experience.  I am proud of the little lady she’s becoming and so sad that my tiny baby isn’t so tiny any more.  This class and the mama’s I’ve met have been such a support system for me.  For any first time moms, I couldn’t recommend joining a group like this enough.  Having friends and a support system of people going through the exact same things as you is amazing.  Especially that first year of sleepless nights, new emotions and many firsts.

Lately Carlota has been keeping my hands full.  There are just not enough hours in the day and unfortunately I haven’t had as much time to focus on my blog.  I don’t know how all the mama bloggers do it out there.

Normally you will see the both of us in jeans and a T-shirt but today we got dolled up.  This  shift dress is perfect for any occasion.  I could dress it down or pair it with these boots and hat for a hip night out.  Maybe I need to start planning some more of those soon so that I can wear it more often!!  This clutch is handmade by J c & e and I just love the details. Its perfect for sprucing a simple monochromatic look.

Thanks for stopping by.

With Love,

Freshly picked – Giveaway


As soon as I saw these sweet little moccasins I knew I needed to have them for baby Carlota.  Before baby girl was even born, my husband and I were obsessed with baby shoes.  Something about seeing shoes we loved in a tiny size…we were sold instantly!  How cute are these little mocs with those chubby legs…..definitely irresistible.

Once my husband saw Susan and Freshly Picked featured on Shark Tank he wanted a pair for Carlota as well.

I was initially attracted to the brand by the cuteness of the moccs.  They come in so many different colors and patterns they can suit any outfit.  I knew I wanted to have a little mini me fashionista so these shoes were a must.  It wasn’t until I had baby girl that I realized how great they are.

Anyone with a newborn knows that as soon as you put socks on them, they are off in about 5 minutes….if you’re lucky.  She is moving like crazy when she’s awake, kicking her legs all over the place. That’s why these moccs are a gem.  They are made with an elastic at the ankle to keep them in place for your active baby.  They start from newborn size all the way up to toddler.  She still needs to grow into these moccasins so I’m happy we have some time with them.

I can’t wait until she’s walking to really put them to use.  But please don’t grow up too fast baby Carlota, mommy wants to soak in every second with you 🙂
