Yes, it’s true, my husband hates when I wear this hat. I stole it from my brother Spenc long ago (who also happened to hate when I wore this hat, for who knows what reason). You see, it seems to be a sin to wear anything referring to the Yankees in this household since B is a die hard NY Mets fan. I, on the other hand, could care less what logo is featured on the front, because it’s so. darn. comfy. Paint spots and all. Plus, it covers greasy hair quite well. :)
Anyway! Onto the real intention of this post! I teamed up with some fabulous ladies again for a “How I Wore It” post. This time our inspiration came from this outfit below:
I loved the green and navy paired together (and stripes! Bring on the stripes!) along with the mix of her casual denim and sweater with those fancy heels. I decided to play off the colors and stripes (my fav!) and downplay a maxi skirt with more of a casual look. (read: mom friendly, I could wear this every single day)
Outfit details: Maxi Skirt: Honey & Lace | Tshirt: Target | Jacket: Old Navy | Hat: Stolen from little brother | Necklace: The Dainty Pair | Sandals: Target and not quite warm enough to wear them yet :)
And there you have it. My husband-despised hat, momiform, too cold for winter but perfect for spring outfit. :) Want to see how my other favorite ladies wore it? Check out their blogs below (they are darling!)

Hola! Last week Brian and I took a little adventure…all on our own! Yup, that’s right! We dropped off Ellie at Gramma’s house (thanks again!) while we went cruisin’ down to Mexico! Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before and a “babymoon” was the perfect excuse to enjoy some salty ocean air and sunshine. :) Ellie could have cared less that we came home (that was hilarious) and who can blame her, she was spoiled and had far too much fun at Gramma’s house! I have lots of photos to share from our cruise, but here’s just a few until I can put together a big post! (Also, I cannot get over all that glorious COLOR in Mexcio! Be still my color loving heart!)
1/30/15 | Oh so independent.
I wish I could freeze time and pause right here at this stage. I want to always remember Ellie’s tiny, talkative voice, her crazy, blonde hair, and the way she has to do everything herself. “I do it!” I don’t want to forget how much she loves pink (especially her pink utensils!) or how much she loves to steal a tiny lick….peanut butter, pancake batter, syrup, anything! I loved watching her concentrate oh so hard on making her sandwich so perfectly, then finishing off every last bite. And her little blue marker hands? So Ellie!
I am so excited to share today’s post with you! My dear friend Kallie recently reached out to me and invited me to participate in her #ServingOthers2015 challenge. It’s so easy to get caught up in my own schedule and activities, that sometimes (a lot of the time) I forget to focus on others. This year, I’m trying to make more of an effort to serve others first, as well as teach Ellie how happy serving others makes us! Service doesn’t have to be big, grand, and expensive. It can be as simple as sending a letter or putting away a bag for the canned food drive. (Or in my case, remembering to set out the bag for the canned food drive. Ahhh!) Ellie and I had a lot of fun putting together this short video with some of our favorite forms of service. I’m hoping this will inspire me do a little more and be a little better. How do you serve? Check out Kallie, Sue, and Kelsi’s blogs and link up below!
We’ve been having an abnormally warm winter and I’m one happy camper! Sunshine, extra park days, and no bulky winter coats? I’ll take it! All this extra sunshine has me dreaming of summer. Since we’re still a ways out, we brought summer indoors! What says summer more than a fresh fruit smoothie? Ellie and I enjoyed drinking ours together, with her favorite colorful straws, of course. (I’m not the the only one that requests cute straws now!)
Our smoothie was super random, but delicious! If you want to make a similar one, you’ll need:
-1 cup diced cantaloupe
-1 cup frozen bananas
-3/4 cup juice (we used what we had in our fridge, some lemonade! But this would be delicious with anything – orange juice, etc!)
-handful of ice cubes
Mix in blender until smooth, drink, and dream of summer! xo
