Okay, so it wasn’t exactly a cool, brisk autumn day when these pictures of Elisa and I were taken — in fact if you look closely you can see sweat beads on my face and I had to pin my bangs to the side because… sweat. It’s mid-October and we are still having 80 degree days with FULL SUN. Sadly over the years I’ve become
Ok, I’m ALL about getting out of the house. Especially with three kids — I tend to stare out my window and day dream of running away from home. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Of course, I always end up chickening out and not doing it. Hahaha! But you get me. One of the “getaways” I (used to) enjoy was going to get my hair done.
As so many of you know, I’m always about comfort, practical and stylish. Sweat pants and extra large mens t-shirts should never be worn. Ever. With so many clothing and wardrobe options now for women of all sizes (thank you for STRETCH) there is no excuse to look anything less than your best. With that in mind, the Berry Dress, just one of many versatile summer dresses
Girls! I’ve been wearing THE perfect undies for a few years now. I found Simply Perfect by Warner’s and have never looked back. See, most underwear problems happen because they are not made for girls with hips and curves, causing pinching, the dreaded roll down and not enough fabric to fit properly over your butt, “baby bump” or hips. Bad underwear ruins not only
Soooo, this hooded olive green jacket from Old Navy isn’t exactly spring-like, but it is in fact ideal to bring in spring because of the various ways to style it — that’s why I’m sharing this for Take Time for Style’s Moms Do Spring Style virtual look book. Whether you are a mom of young kids (note the milk stains on the arms) or an empty-nester, this
That’s right, Costco clothing. I grabbed this burgundy, grey and black poncho wrap and tossed it in my cart along with my frozen veggies, diapers, wipes, jumbo pack of tuna and dish towels. For $20 you can’t go wrong and the quality is great. Besides, we all know Costco has great items and if you do a bit of digging in their clothing section, you
Hello? Is this thing on? Check 1, 2… Oh hey! Good to see you — I’m back. I was out of commission (again) because you know… three kids, three kids oh and THREE KIDS. Two at home and just life. Now we moved to a new home with more room and light so we are in the midst of UNPACKING and getting set up. The fact is,
I really wanted to bundle up this weekend — at least 2 layers and maybe a cute pair of boots. But noooooo, it’s still HOT around here. That, and mosquitoes! This is not Florida so I don’t know what’s going on. Related Post: Fall Layering Like a Mother Plus I’m still breastfeeding, my hormones are out of whack and I sweat non-stop. My hair looked
DO NOT REPRODUCE OR COPY IMAGES WITHOUT PERMISSION Shopping for baby girl clothes can be oh-so-dangerous! I truly enjoyed buying cute baby clothes for my first daughter and more recently (she’s 3 1/2) seeing her choose her own pieces as she develops her own sense of style. Now it’s Elisa’s turn to be styled by mami and Carter’s has everything we need from basics such as bibs, bodysuits
Yes, I’m all smiles because of my baby girl, but truth is I’m a hot (literally) mess! It’s been 2 months since giving birth and she being my first summer baby (the other two were in January) I have to say I’m NOT loving this time of year with a newborn — high temperatures, super long days, mosquitoes and the other kids are home for vacation.

She’s mine and I can’t stop staring at her! Elisa is my saving grace, my light, my everything. Amazing how she, my third child, has
I’ve been trying to write and post this since Monday, but all things baby get in the way and frankly — I’m absolutely thrilled with that! Some days while the other two are playing or watching TV I’m doing nothing more than sitting, holding and staring at Elisa. Yes, STARING. Watching her sleep, smelling and kissing her. She is my addiction — I can’t get enough of
