girlie garden...

After finally having a full week of spring, I decided it was about time to get to Home Depot and stock up all things yard related.  grass seed, fertilizer, plants, flowers, mulch, etc.  I thought it would be fun to let LA have her own little garden to tend to this year while we were outside busy with our own chores.

After finally narrowing down her search from every flower there to about 5-6, we got busy. The first day she kept them watered.  I had to slow her down from over watering.  she was a little eager.


We then went to town planting them.  she picked out the planter (a drink tub)


 and also the placement of each flower.


It turned out beautiful...


She is very proud of it...


and takes the waterings very seriously...



Lets hope she has a little greener thumb than i do and can keep these babies alive for a little while.

11 months

 I cant believe little Lou is 11 months old.


She is really close to walking.  shes taken a couple of unassisted steps.  but likes to hang on mostly.


She is currently saying, mamma (sometimes) doggy and dada.  And an occasional "all done" after eating.


She officially outgrew the infant carseat.  her long legs were hanging off by too much. Shes loving the new seat.  and my arms are loving it too.


Happy 11 months silly girl...

Monday Happenings...

 Happy Monday!  Want to wish a happy  birthday to my beautiful mother.



The girls decided to sing her a little happy birthday song this morning...


I know Im biased but are they not the cutest?  They have been ridiculously cute lately.


and have you ever seen a sweeter sleepy face?


also this happened.


right?!?  its the cutest picture ever.  wish i would have taken it with my actual camera and not my phone.  but whatevs.

Things have been super busy around here lately. LA is in soccer and she could take it or leave it.  she thinks its for boys.


Ballet is still her one true love though...


Ballet and Frozen...

obsessed. 

hopefully the weather will warm up and stay warm soon so we can get some time outside.  this winter has been brutal.  and long.

also hoping to get a few house projects in this spring.  we have a bunch of boring stuff lined up first though,  like a new AC unit (ugh), some crawlspace mildew removing, and some new toilets. not looking forward to any of it. like i said, totally boring. but hopefully i can squeeze a couple fun projects out this spring.

off to birthday dinner celebrations!  Happy Monday.

Friday, Im in love...

Ill take them...


Normally I am a sucker for an all white kitchen, but I am loving the black cabinets here.  mixed with the wooden beams and brass accents.  Im in love. And its perfect with the white subway tile and grey grout.



Kiddy Docs?  Yes Please.  Except my child wouldnt be caught dead in them because
1. they dont twirl
2. they arent pink
3. they dont sparkle
4. i like them.


she would however swoon over this, kinda like I did.  until i saw the price tag.  seriously? $170 for some chiffon and sparkles?  come on, JCrew.


I love a good Ikea hack. Im really loving this little table.  Im pretty sure you could stick legs on any piece of furniture and Im going to love it.


Happy Friday!  Its 65 degrees and sunny out so Im taking advantage.

10 months...

 10 months. dang.


cant believe girly is almost a year old



she is such a goofball...


She is constantly on the go.  crawling, furniture surfing, or using her walker. girly is always on the move.


She is into blocks lately. or more so tearing down sisters blocks. or more so tearing up anything sister is doing.


Her favorite activity is still eating.  Girl will eat anything.


Happy 10 months sweet thing.
