Life Lately

Happy Tuesday!  I don't know about you all but with a forecast of 80 degrees in April and a settlement with my favorite seller today it's gearing up to be a really good Tuesday.

This past weekend was a packed but fun weekend.  Friday night I had a Junior League Gala and rocked a pre-pregnancy dress!! It's the little things that excite me these days. 
This was actually a bridesmaid dress for my friend Kate's wedding 2 years ago- so you can wear bridesmaid dresses again and it's a bonus if the first time you wore it you weren't pregnant. 

Since the weather has warmed up we have been doing a lot of walking around these parts.   It's been good for all of us, it gets me and Kyle moving and it wears out Layla which is usually the intention of the walks.

We spent Saturday walking around downtown Annapolis.  I forget all the time how lucky I am to live so close to the water.  We decided we need to take more advantage of it this summer.

We stopped by Paws Pet Boutique to pick up a new summer collar for Layla. If you're local I totally suggest visiting them- they are so nice and friendly and have a huge selection of collars and leashes for dogs.   I really wanted to get the matching leash but Kyle refuses to let her be too girly.  

Sunday we ventured into DC with some out of town friends to see the Cherry Blossoms.  The weather man was wrong and I believe the highest it got to was maybe 63 degrees and it was super windy!  There was really only one tree with a few blooms on it but it was still fun to play tourist for a little while. 

 For the record it's impossible to get Kyle to dress up on the weekends. I gave up years ago.

 I've been meaning to share this with you for awhile but here is an updated shot of our family room with the white fireplace!   The room still has a long way to go and I have 100 ideas floating through my head but even just the paint changes made a huge difference. 

Ignore the ugly fireplace screen- we need a new one but can't more that one or Layla will roll around in the ashes.  

Now here is the before so you can compare: 

Hope you all have a good Tuesday and are enjoying warm weather!
