Life 7 Months Later

At the beginning of the year, I had this great goal to bring the blog back to blogging. Well here I am and I haven't written anything since February during Oscars season. I feel this quote is pretty accurate...


Having a now 19 month old child, a full time job and a house to run is no easy feat. Did I mention I brought back my fabric ornament business back to life? Well I did and in the spring I resurged back into the fabric ornament making so add that on top of everything else I mentioned in that first sentence. 

As we approach fall, I'd like to reflect on our summer. We went to the zoo several times, played with the water table in the backyard, had cousin playdates, went to Tennessee on vacation and made some pretty big life changes. 

Presley at Easter...

 Presley last month at 18 months old...

I promise to do better and write more. I think the only people who pop on here every now and then is my mother and my husband but hey you have to build an audience somewhere. Ha! Until then enjoy each day.

Oscar 2019

The 91st Oscars Ceremony is in the books! 

I think this might have been my favorite one since Ellen hosted. For me and millions of others, the highlight of the show was Lady Gaga and Bradley's performance of Shallow. What a great song, performance and couple. If only they were officially together. 

The best speech in my opinion was Olivia Coleman. Like everyone else on the planet, she too was shocked that she won! She clearly didn't think she had a chance because she had no speech written and was going completely off the cuff. It was super cute and heartfelt though and everyone in the room was in shock with her. 

Now... the fashion...
These were my favorite top 4 looks

First up, Jennifer Lopez aka JLO

I loved everything about this look. The dress, the color, her bag, her hair! I have a hair appointment on Friday and I'm about to show them this picture and say make it happen. 

Next up, Emma Stone...
I loved the color and design of this dress. Not that many people can pull off shoulders like that but Emma sure can. 

Third, Emilia Clark, aka Queen of Game of Thrones. 

The soft coloring and the design work on this dress was stunning on the carpet. I loved it but her brown hair threw me for a loop! I'm so use to seeing her as a blonde. 

Last but not least... Lady Gaga!
This dress was amazing and the gloves were a nice accent but let's talk about that diamond. At first I did a double take! 
The famous Tiffany yellow diamond has only been worn three times and this was the first time at the Oscars. It comes with two bodyguards as well. Not to be mistaken for the Isadora diamond. 

What were some of your favorite looks at the Oscars this year?

Presley’s First Birthday

Last week Presley turned ONE! 

We didn’t celebrate with a huge, blowout party. We just had a few family members over and friends. We didn’t even do party invites that’s how small we kept it. We did eat cake though!
We opened gifts all day long, we played with our new gifts then we would repeat that cycle. In true fashion, Presley was having so much fun he refused to take his last nap so by the end of the night he had been up for almost 8 hours. I was rewarded with him sleeping the majority of the night and getting up at 6:25 a.m. 
The weather was not cooperating on his birthday so we had to wait till President's Day to take him to the Zoo and boy did he LOVE it! He got to see all kinds of different animals and reptiles, take part in the Giraffe encounter and even saw some real life water hogs from the Lion King. 



I think for a first birthday party we did pretty good! Next year will be completely different because he will be so much more aware. We will have to start planning a great birthday theme and plans!
