22 months!

Stopping in for a quick minute to say "HI! I'm still here!"  The month of June is absolutely INSANE...we've been to Key West, Texas and North Carolina already...and now will be heading back to Key West next weekend with our BFFs from college!!  I will do a post on Texas and NC soon, but I had to stop in and share with y'all that my little monkey is TWENTY TWO months old.


 i cannot handle this growing up business.

soon he will turn two and this is not good.  No more babie-ness. 

Quick, someone tell me how to keep him little!

Or wait...maybe I just need to have babies forever.  Let me get on that.

would you just look at the farmer's tan..those skinned knees..bruises...goodness gracious, he is all boy.

A little update about this little guy:

1. Is a great eater.  He eats a LOT and loves most things...his favorites right now are cheese, breakfast bars, black beans, and watermelon.  He doesn't like green beans.

2. He had his first GOAT burger while in Texas.  Yes...true story.  and it was pretty good!

3.  He loves Darla even more than ever.  He will go and hug on her for over 4-5 minutes at a time.

4.  He loves nodding yes and no to everything now.  He still isn't that big of a talker, but we will get there.

5.  He still loves talking to anyone that walks by him.  And he loves waving to them.

6. He also likes to burp on purpose..oh lord.

Love this monkey so much!

Be back soon!

***If you've noticed, blogger is somehow making my photos really blurry.  :(  They are not that way when I upload them so not sure what is going on..sorry about that. ***

Stitch Fix is here!  I got some great items this month and can't wait to share them with you!

I've been with SF for over a year and no doubt, my favorite items in my closet are from them.

1.  Palacio Abstract Print Colorblock Print Tank by Pixley

 I actually requested this top and man, do I love it.  Pink is my favorite color, and it also has navy blue and black in it, so I can wear it with either color.  It fit perfect and is just the right amount of pop for me.  KEPT

2. Fallon Mixed Print Sleeveless Blouse by Brixon Ivy

 Hubby really loved this top on me, but I was just "okay" about it.  The colors were fabulous, but it just wasn't love.  RETURNED

3. Arynn Tie Back Chevron Top by Olive and Oak

 I also requested this top (have i mentioned how much I love my stylist?  She always listens to my requests) but sadly, I was underwhelmed.  It was very sheer and too big for me.  Kind of like a trash bag.  I did love the colors and the print, but I did not keep it.  RETURNED

4. Karla Textured Shorts by Skies are Blue

 These shorts are AMAZING.  I hated them in the box and then when I put them on, I changed my mine completely.  There is no zipper or buttons kind of like maternity clothes (why can't women live in maternity clothing all the time?) but you'd never know.  The print on the front is super cute and the color was nice.  Not something I would pick from the store, but that's the beauty of SF.  To step out of your fashion comfort zone and go for bold styles.  I think I'll get some use out of these this summer.  KEPT

5. Lysette Quilted Clutch by Moda Luxe

 As a mom, my clutch wearing days are limited.  I need to be able to fit a sippy cup, a couple snacks, a toy truck, a cheese stick, and a diaper in my purse.  Sadly, this didn't fit the bill.  It's very pretty thought but I did not keep it.  RETURNED.

What do you think? Did I make the right choices?  Which item was your favorite?  If you'd like to sign up , click HERE!

Key West!

We spent my birthday weekend in Key West with my mom and stepdad- it was a very fun weekend...there is never shortage of things to do in KW and we had a ball.

They are retired and living in their RV..traveling the USA with their weeny dog, Rosie. 

Meanwhile back home,  Winslow is becoming instistent on the strangest things....pool floaties over his jammies, monkey hats, and having long conversations with himself in the dryer. 

We are SUPER duper busy this month...Heading to Texas this weekened, NC next weekend, and Key West again at the end of the month.  Then in July, my sis LOGAN is coming to visit.   oh yeah, we are also looking at buying a house...sheesh.  So yeah, we are staying busy over here.  

Also, it's hot.
