Life Lately

Sorry for the radio silence!   Mills is on the MOVE big time and I NEVER.EVER.SIT.DOWN.  EVER.  I mean I wanted him to crawl and pull and up and scoot and meet all those milestones but I never imagined just how much physical work that would be for me. Phew. I seriously don't sit down unless he naps.We have gates everywhere but apparently an eight month old is smarter than the gates so I just spend all day playing defense. 

I wish I could say we've been doing fun crazy exciting things but we really haven't.  It's been so freaking cold here that we've really just been inside. A lot.  We all have a horrible case of cabin fever and it's supposed to be 54 today (woohoo) which means we will be taking a long walk! 

my view most days...

It snowed on Monday. I didn't believe the weather people and thought it would be a dusting.  Wrong, it was 7inches of powder.   Conveniently Kyle was in Boca Raton, FL so I had to shovel the driveway myself.    I've decided I deserve a pair of Tory Burch sandals as a reward (just joking, sort of)

I think my new holiday thing is to make dessert in honor the holiday... so on St. Patrick's Day we had shamrock brownies.   They were delicious. 

I'm hoping the Spring Equinox brings warmer weather.  This winter has been awful and I'm not sure how much longer I can take it.

We have started working on our guest bathroom upstairs which will be Mills' bathroom so I'm trying to make it kid friendly but not too over the top. 
 I found this amazing Serena and Lily shower curtain for $24.99 at Homegoods thanks to instagram friends so this was my jumping off point and I'm excited to paint and get started.  We aren't doing a  full renovation yet- that will probably be 2015 but in the meantime I plan to add some things to spruce it up so it doesn't scream 1980s. 
I still haven't settled on a paint color but I will keep you posted as I work on it.  

Happy Thursday Friends!



  1. Yay for warmer weather (for a few days at least)! With Abby I was so excited for her to roll, crawl and walk and with Ginny I knew better and was more than happy when she didn't stick to the same developmental schedule as her big sis! Can't wait to see how the bathroom looks - that shower curtain was such an amazing score!

  2. Seriously? You sound JUST like me!! I don't sit down!! Savanna is about to be 10 months and she NEVER STOPS. I can't wait for the weather to get warm..at least it's spring now, right?!

  3. I was actually thinking about you today and wondering if I've been missing your posts or if you just haven't been blogging! Love those shamrock brownies! Great deal on that shower curtain!

  4. Ummmm, how is he so big already?!? Goodness, their first year just flies by too fast! And seriously - 8 months is a BUSY stage. I remember thinking that life as I knew it was over when Jackson started crawling......like you, I never sat down!

    He's absolutely precious - glad I stopped by and got a good dose of some darling baby goodness this morning... not a bad way to start a Friday! Happy weekend ahead, girl!

  5. M is looking like he is loving being a man on the move!! It is exhausting!!! I feel like all I do all day is say "No, Brody. No, Brody" as he gets into absolutely everything all around the house. I feel like I mind as well donate all his toys now because those certainly don't interest him anymore. He wants the pantry or inside the fridge or toilet seats, remotes and computers!!
