Car Organization

Thursday, May 8, 2014
My car is always a mess and with 2 small kids, spills and messes are just out of my control at times. I could implement a rule of no snacks and drinks in the car but with our commute sometimes snacks and drink are my life savers and I am in survival mode right now so I can care less about practicality.

Car organization is a skill I lack and the mess in my car is one my husband's pet peeve.

I was so happy to find this video from WhatsUpMoms, if you are not following her, you should! She is hilarious! Her Mom's Car video motivated to attempt to do something about the mess in my car. I also sent to my husband with the subject reading: SEE! I am not the only one! ha! :)

My Boys Outfit of the Day

Wednesday, May 7, 2014
The never ending struggle for boy moms, is when you go to the stores and see so many isles and racks of gorgeous options for girl clothes and accessories and then when you hit the boys section, you find a limited selection and its all in boring colors.

I get that most boys are not into fashion like some girls are do but US moms of these boys, WE care! And for moms of boys, its not only about putting them in a cute outfit but its also about teaching them self-care, teaching them to take the time to care about how they look and how to look presentable. I am hoping that my son seeing the time and care I put into selecting his clothes, is a skill he picks up on and takes with him when he leaves us one day (hopefully never).

I am always on a mission to find nice, trendy clothes on a budget. Boys will be boys and will get dirty no matter what you do, so not spending lots of money on clothes allows me to give him the freedom to still be him but look cute in the process!

Here is an outfit from this past weekend.

A Brothers Bond

Tuesday, May 6, 2014
We have done a lot of celebrating over the last couple of weeks. Our first born just turned 4! I still can not believe it! It feels like we hit a milestone! Next year he will be in kindergarten! Then, the little one turned the big ole O-N-E! With that big birthday came the accomplishment of sleeping through the night. We got to experience a glorious week of sleep and got the chance to feel well rested and wake up from our zombie haze, only to go back to waking 2-3 times a night because of teething. :) C'est la vie!

What has been amazing to witness is the bond these two are forming. They know they are brothers!
They have begun fighting over toys, and for our attention but they have also realized they are part of the same unit, they are in this together and it's the two of them against the world! It's marvelous.

My prayer is that this bond, that will only grow stronger, will never leave them. No matter how old they get, and what life may bring them, that they know they will always have each other and that is the best gift their daddy and I could have ever given them!

There are days when I feel run down. When the husband is out of town. There are days when I feel like me working full time really gets in the way of me being a good mom. The are days when I am just tired. But even in those days, I know I am blessed. I am so blessed to have my little family.

They are healthy and happy! a handful but oh so cute!!! 

The little one is will be 1 soon! It's a little bitter sweet. I remember the high we were all on when we first brought him home, then it got "real". Going back to work was a huge adjustment. Getting a home routine was hard, we are finally ALMOST there. It's getting easier and easier to manage. We are finally getting to really enjoy these two! 

The older one is something else! He is just the silliest boy ! i love his personality so much! He is very much into superheroes right now.

I am just blessed.

Waiting on Spring

Thursday, March 13, 2014
We have had about 4 snow storms in the DC area and I am over it!!! We have also have also been battling a couple rounds of a nasty cold we can't seem to shake off.

I am dreaming of SPRING! I can not wait. I am ready to put away sweaters and coats and bring out my sandals!

I have a mini bucket list that has me anticipating 70 degree weather and sunshine.

1. Wear hats. 

I don't have time to style my hair every day. On my bad hair days, I can throw on a hat and create a signature look while I'm at it!


2. Rock Blazers

You can do anything with a blazer now. Blazer and a pair of jeans. Easy! I can do that!


3. Do something with lace

What girl doesn't like lace!
