A Little Extra Thankful (Okay A LOT!)







Top – Thankful Tees: Urban Smalls; Jeans: Cat & Jack; Second – Thankful Tee: Children’s Park Avenue; Headband: Hobby Lobby; Skirt: Similar

So of course we are extra thankful this year, we have two beautiful blessings now! It was Cameron’s first Thanksgiving and unlike his sister, he loves food. He enjoyed sweet potato, mashed potatoes and pumpkin. Even with two kids, we managed to make three stops to visit family and friends. It was such a wonderful day filled with lots of love and laughter.

Kayla also had a Thanksgiving event at school where she wrote on her leaf that she was “thankful for her momma”. She just melts my heart. But if you ask her in person she says she’s thankful for her Daddy, Mommy, Cameron, Rocko and Nonna. She loves her little brother so much. She was so happy to see their matching shirts and loved that Cameron’s said thankful for his big sister and vice versa. She actually snuggles up to him and kisses him in our pictures all on her own, I never even ask her to. It’s the cutest thing ever. Although there are definitely times when she’s snatching his favorite toy out of his hand or singing extra loud when he’s sleeping in his car seat right next to her. But hey, that’s what big sisters are for…I should know šŸ˜‰

Hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving as well!

Christmas pictures have already been taken and can’t wait to share!!!



Pumpkin Patch DIY






Tutu: Tulle Fabric, Elastic, Flower; Shoes: Mini MelissaĀ Silver CatĀ (these run big); Creeper; Boo Iron Transfer: Similar; Hair Bands: Goody

This year, Underwood Farms set the scene for Kayla’s pumpkin patch shoot. She had so much fun! She loved the wagon ride, pumpkins, big hay spiders, bottomless shaved ice and of course the animals. But most importantly she was the cutest fall princess at the farm. I put this outfit together for about $15 (excluding shoes and hair ties) with supplies from Hobby Lobby and couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. On top of that, it only took about 2 hours (or as long as the run time of Ride Along) to complete. IĀ had so much fun creating this look, I can’t wait for my next DIY project.
