    Rain, Rain, Go Away…

    ¬†Thrifted vintage dress and heels | Target tights | self-made flower crown | old umbrella | New Old Fashion Vintage scarf Well, today I am not that happy with anything. It’s dumping buckets of rain outside, which limits my photographing ability; I adore this dress but today I just couldn’t get it styled the way I want it, my hair is having one of those days (any attempt to do anything with it has been foiled) and is getting to the point where I need to decide whether to dye it red or back to my natural color and I just don’t know, and also I’m cold. So here’s the…

    Sunday Sweets: Where My Heart Is

    ¬† A late Sunday Sweets post for you guys today! We were gone all day, and being me… I rarely schedule these things ahead of time! I took these photos a few weeks ago when the sun was absolutely perfect and my husband and Asa unwittingly matched. This is where my heart is. I hope you have all had a fantastic week! P.S. 14 days until Dressember! Are any of you going to do it? Even if you only do a week of dresses, it’s still a great way to spread the word!

    Sunday Sweets: Escape Artist

    He increasingly escapes from diaper changing time these days, with knowing how to roll away and sit himself up, and crawl backwards. We’re waiting for him to figure out forward motion, but since he knows he can sit up, he just pushes backwards until he’s on his butt, and hasn’t realized forward is a good option. Plus, he’s pulling himself up to his knees to get stuff off of the coffee table and couch now, so uh… we might have a straight-to-walking kid on our hands. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

    Sunday Sweets: Halloween Edition

    ¬† This year, we all went on our very first Trick-or-Treat adventure with Asa’s cousins; Mr. Owl and I have never gone, and it’s Asa’s first Halloween. So we got dressed up in our costumes (Mr. Owl as Brand from the Goonies, me a generic 80’s girl at his request, Asa a frog) and traipsed around a shopping center asking for candy from store owners. Obviously, Asa is still too little for candy. But that didn’t stop anyone from giving it to him! It was a lot of fun. At one point, I walked up to a booth with all four of my nephews scurrying around me, and the lady…

    Mama+baby style: the cat and the fox

    These past few days, I have not been feeling great about myself. About my body, about my abilities as a housewife, about my mothering… you know those moments, when there isn’t anything particularly bad about life, but it still just feels off to you? I’m going through one of those moments. And I am not crying out for comments that I don’t need to lose weight or I must be a great mother or whatever… I just want to talk about it. There are a lot of fashion bloggers who happen to be moms, but I don’t think many of them talk about life as a mom, and how it…
