Personalized Jewelry


Anyone who knows me is aware of my love of jewelry.  My absolute favorite pieces are those that are personalized.  So I was thrilled when Onenecklace sent me the loveliest personalized necklace!  I chose this necklace with the initials of my hubby and baby boy.  The store has so many pieces to choose from that it was hard just picking one!  I've worn this necklace many times since receiving it and it holds up well so the price is well worth it!  If you are in the market for a beautiful personalized necklace for you or a friend, Onenecklace has great options at an amazing price!

More importantly!!  Onenecklace is graciously providing a 10% off coupon to all Dainty & Decadent readers with code daintyanddecadent


Necklace: Onenecklace c/o  /  Sweater: GAP  /  Skirt: J. Crew Factory  /  Bag: Coach

*I was sent this necklace by the company but the review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Easter Bunny


On Saturday, my friend organized an awesome Easter egg hunt for all the little babies.  The weekend before, we had a play date at a gymnastics center and Lucas was a little hesitant with the other babies.  This weekend, however, it was great to see him socializing with the other babies to even holding hands with my friend's sweet little girl.  Lucas is in stranger danger period so I was sure he would cry when he sat on the Easter Bunny's lap but nope!  Instead he was fascinated by how soft his hands were.  I also didn't think he would keep his glasses on but I guess he's fancy like that and kept them on!  We had an amazing time and look forward to more of these days.

Florals and Grey


After months and months of not buying myself any clothes (pregnancy then post pregnancy weight), I'm finally starting to get the urge to buy a couple pieces to add to my closet.  I've sort of changed my mentality in shopping.  I've never been one to frivolously spend but, now, I'm finding that I only want to buy things if I truly love it and know I can get a lot of use out of it.  99.9% of the time, I shop online and now I triple think before I click the check out button.  If it's not something I love, mother's guilt tells me that I could save the money and put into Lucas' savings account.  Anyways, this rambling is because I saw this shirt at Target and almost didn't buy it but it made me feel happy which is just what I need to get me through long days.  

PS: I'm completely aware that this post is one big rambling hot mess ;-)

Sunday Goings


So I missed an entire week of blogging...whoops.  A lot has been going on and until this weekend, I could barely keep my head above water.  I just kept telling myself to take things one day at a time.  First, my husband accepted a position with a different company and, although, I am extremely happy for him as it's a great opportunity for him and our family, I'm selfishly sad.  He and I had been working at the same firm for three years and it's been hard not seeing him at the office every day.  It has also added more work load on me and so last week was absolute madness.  We were also suppose to go to Puerto Rico last week and the NIGHT BEFORE we were to flight out, Lucas got the stomach virus...trip cancelled.  He started feeling better the next day which was most important.

After the last two crazy weeks, it felt nice to get a little more dressed up on Sunday to attend a friend's baby shower.  We also had a play date at a gymnastics center later in the afternoon so the weekend was the perfect ending to a hectic week.  I'm still trying to find the right balance in my life right now so I really appreciate those of you who continue to read this little internet space of mine and check up on me.  Here's to a new week and taking things one day at a time.

8 Months Old


Yesterday, Lucas turned 8 months old and it's another month filled with milestones.  He's crawling so fast, babbling tons, and now pulls and stands up on whatever and whomever he feels like.  We've had to lower his crib since he was pulling up on the bars making this mommy very anxious.

He and Mia are now best buds, well in his mind.  Mia has been amazing with him.  He will crawl intently towards her and she will either jump on the couch or let him pet her.  She has never snapped at him but we always have a hand near her face in case she does.  But she has been such a wonderful big {doggy} sister!

Thankfully, he is still wearing 12-18 and some, I mean very little, 6-12.  We went through a crazy growth spurt early on so I'm glad he's getting more wear of his clothes now.  Soon, he will be taking his first airplane trip and any words of encouragement are greatly appreciated!  I bought new toys that he hasn't played with to hopefully keep him entertained.  He's also really liking Puff snacks so I will have plenty in hand.

Neck Candy


I think I've been in and out of the courtroom almost every day lately so my outfits have felt very blah.  I've been gravitating towards bold necklaces too add a little something special to all the button downs and blazers that have become my uniform.  It was during my maternity leave that I found Jane.com, Groopdealz, and Zulily (for Lucas) and it is so hard for me not to want to buy something EVERY day.  Costume jewelry is not something that I like to spend a lot of money on and those websites have become my go to place for pretty necklaces.  For me, a pretty necklace brightens up my mood and makes me feel more feminine especially when wearing pant suits.  If you haven't checked out those websites, you definitely should!

(Nope, not being compensated by those websites as they most likely do not know who I am...but they sure are familiar with my debit card...)
