Here we go. January and February: GOOD RIDDANCE.

My little snow angel.

It just so happens that baby clothing sizes vary widely. My lil flower bud is almost three months old and there are some "0 month" size clothes that are way too big... and others that she's already grown out of (*sniff sniff*). So of course, while it's still cold, I had to try on her cute (newborn sized) snowsuit even though her arms and legs only fit halfway to the edges.




GIANT BABY PUFFFF


And here's a bonus pic of my sleepy winter baby. The handsssss.

i'm lost


It seems like February has been swallowed up in flat grey.


I shouldn't venture out.


I might just disappear.

i gots opinions


WANNA KNOW WHAT I THINK? I THINK THIS BLOG NEEDS A LITTLE LESS OF MOM AND A LITTLE MORE OF ME. WHATCHA THINK?


WELL?


HMM???


OH.... MOM. DIDN'T SEE YOU THERE.


WELLLL THIS IS AWKWARD.

off topic


Ok ok... despite the fact that I've made fun of the store and its clientele for quite some time now, I am humbling myself and admitting that there are several things that I would buy/have bought from the angsty teen mecca known as Hot Topic. What can I say... I like cutesy things and guns and hearts and skulls and stuff. LEAVE ME ALONE *storms off to bedroom slams door and flops on bed*


Look, there's even something for Violet! Adorbz...

that voice


I love love love Adele's voice. New album drops todayyyy.


You are beautiful and amazing.


FUN FACT: Me and Violet have a song... Adele's cover of "Make You Feel My Love". I sang it to her lots when she was in the womb and now out of it. Lovely lovely song.

FUN FACT #2: There is a cover of "Lovesong" by the Cure on her new album, which is the song Mike and I danced to at our wedding. I tell ya, Adele has been there for key moments in my life.

IT'S AWESOME.

I was never in the girl scouts, and I probably would've hated it at the time due to my extreme shyness. However, I wish giving out badges for accomplishing stuff and wearing them around was a standard practice. I need a "I GAVE BIRTH" patch. And I definitely earned my "PUMPKIN PIE" badge. Think of all the possibilities! In the meantime, if you wanna buy me a present, they sell lots of vintage girl scout patches on Ebay.

cozy o'clock


We've seen a few warmer days, but I'm not putting away the warm snuggly stuff just yet. Me and Violet and Zooey know how to get our comfy on.





say hello to my little friends


Gah! The cuteness! These DEFINITELY win the "best Jeremy Scott designed Adidas sneakers" award... ousting the previous champion:


I think it's safe to say, however, that both could be considered necessities. Love!
