Friday Favorites

Hey Guys! Sorry I was MIA last week, there was just a lot going on and I didn't get a minute to sit down and blog, so I apologize for that! I hope you all had a great week and here in Upstate NY all of the kids are back to school so Good Luck to All The Amazing Teachers I Have Met! 
On to the favorites! This week I seen a lot of horrible things in the news so it was hard to sift through all the negativity to find positive things to write about. So with that being said, here are some of the things that I have been loving this week.

"I know I don't have a lot of time, but if I may tell you a quick story. Recently, I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue, 'Mama?' I said, 'Yes, baby?' She said, 'I'm the ugliest girl I know.' And I said, 'Huh?' And she was like, 'Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair.' And my brain went to, 'Oh my god…

Hey Guys! Happy Friday! I hope all of you had a wonderful week! This week was a bit busy for us, we went to a HUGE Flea Market that was a great day for us to spend time together as a family and then Lilly began taking steps on her own. She is getting so big and is growing so fast! This weekend we have some shopping in our plans and to just enjoy the last days of summer! With that being said who is excited for the Fall Season?? OMG! I am so ready for the cooler weather and the fall decorating!

Transitioning Into Fall🍁

Hello Guys! Today I wanted to create a post about Fall Fashion! I was recently scrolling through Pinterest and found some amazing pieces that worked beautifully as we transition into fall. Most of them are dresses that you can simply add a cute cardigan or jean jacket too and you are instantly ready for fall. I am all for layering in the cooler months with sweaters, leggings, dresses, and scarves. What are some of your favorite go-to fashion ideas for the fall? I would love to hear about them in the comments below! 
Here are some of my pics!
Let me know your favorites!

Friday Favorites

We made it to another Friday! Aren't Fridays the absolute best? I know for me everyday seems to roll into one since being a SAHM but on Fridays I do feel just a bit more happier! I hope all of you had a great week thus far and are looking forward to the weekend. I can't even believe it's back to school for some kids, here in NY they got about five more weeks to go! The summers always seem to fly by! I have to admit though I am anxiously awaiting for Fall! I am ready for the cooler, comfortable weather, not to mention all the cute Fall outfits that Lilly and I will be sporting!
Anyways, enough of my rambling! Here are some favorites from the past week!

First Year: A Letter To My Daughter: July 31, 2017

Hello Everyone! Today I am doing a special post for my sweet daughter Lilly. In the months before Lilly's birthday I knew I wanted to write a letter to her explaining our journey in having her and how much she has blessed our lives thus far. So I began writing and I think that it came out exactly how I wanted it to be. I will be holding onto it until she is 18 but until then I wanted to share it with all of you, as well as a glimpse into Lilly's first year of life and my first year as a Mother! 
I hope you all enjoy reading this and I will leave the letter I wrote to Lilly down below! Have a beautiful week and I will see you all for Friday Favorites!

When we first brought Lilly home we were experiencing an array of emotions but we were so happy to finally have our little miracle. I have to admit the first night was ROUGH, and I am sure it is for a lot of new parents. Once we figured out Lilly was going to have to eat formula it was much better. The first three months of having a …

Happy Friday Everyone! We are so excited for the weekend to arrive because we will be celebrating our little girl on Saturday! She officially turns 1 on Monday, July 31 but we are celebrating a few days earlier. I can't even believe that a year has gone by already and we are actually thinking about baby number 2! AHHH! I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with Lilly and see her grow and learn new things every day! We are in love with our little miracle and we can't wait to celebrate her tomorrow! 
I hope that all of you have big and exciting plans for the weekend !

Happy Friday Everyone! This week has been so HOT, how is the weather where you guys are? Lilly and I have been just doing tons of water play and eating the occasional ice cream!

But for now let's just enjoy the rest of the summer!
Here is what I have been loving this week!

Hey Guys! I hope you all had a an amazing Fourth of July! We spent it with family and we had just the perfect day!

Anyways, I wanted to share a few holiday inspired favorites from this past week!

A Healthier Me

Hey Guys! Do you ever just wake up one day and think I could be doing so much more for my self to make sure I am living the best possible life! Well I have had that realization recently and I want to talk to all of you about what my plans are for achieving this change in my life. Since becoming parents Gregg and I have always said that we want to be around and active in our child or children's lives. In order to do that we have to live a healthy lifestyle and be role models for our kids. 
Now don't get me wrong we haven't lived horrible lifestyles but there is always room for improvement no matter where you are in the fitness world. So as of tomorrow we will be starting a new. Eating better, working out more and just overall watching what we eat and making sure our fitness takes a front seat to all of our lives. 
I am going to share with you a few ways that we are going to do this. Now, this for us is not just going to be a diet for a few months, we want to create a healthie…
