Where does the time go?

Our baby girl Sloane is now 8 weeks old and growning way to fast in my opinion.  I feel like I blink and she's already twice the size she was when we brought her home.  She has been such a blessing and has fulfilled our lives in ways we never imagined.

She has given us many smiles to cherish and brighten our days. 

We've shared a few cries and quiet moments too.

But cuddling takes precedence over everything else. 

Needless to say, we love every sqaure inch of her.

Tip Toe Twins

Last week while we were out and about school shopping, we headed to the Premium Outlet Center in Houston.  When ever I shop there I always make a stop at the Tory Burch store to see if I can score some cute shoes on a discount.  This go around I found a beautiful pair of tan ballet flats with a black patent toe.  I snatched them up immediately and was on a shopping high when I left the store.

To make this purchase even better, the next day we were in Gap Kids and I spied a pair of black toe ballet flats for my 4 year old.  Of course I could not resist the purchase since they looked just like mine and like my daughter would say we were twinsies!

First Day of School Style

Today was a big day in our house.  My daughter started PreK and did an awesome job at drop off.  She was very brave, not one bit scared and eager to learn.

She also put a lot of thought into her first of school outfit.  As you can see she was feeling sassy! 

A little Monday Runway pose for you.

Here is the sweet smile I saw all morning long.

Making our way to school.  The bag is as big as she is.

This is her "come on mom" look.  She was done with the photos and ready to head out.

Make a wish!

Yesterday was my husband's birthday and we had a casual dinner at home just the four of us.  It's a tradition with our family that we bake a cake for each other and this year we made a chocolate fudge cake with chocolate icing.  It was delicious. 

Check out the action pic below.  The baby's face cracks me up.

Mom's One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book

Found this precious memory book for mothers. I love the idea of writing a simple one line a day journal entry to archive precious moments between you and your children. I've never been one to keep a journal, but a simple one line entry I can do.

I am In The Mood for Fall

I am so ready for fall. I am over the severe drought situation we have in Houston. I want to enjoy the outdoors again, not just run from indoors to the car to avoid the 100+ plus temperatures.

To fuel my dreams for cooler days a JCrack (JCrew) catalogue showed up in my mail.  I think I need to add these to my fall wardrobe.

First up, the Cece Flat from JCrew.
