When I first started reading blogs in 2009, one of the first stores I was introduced to was Modcloth. I loved and still love their classic pieces at affordable prices. So when Modcloth contacted me regarding their Uniquely You Campaign and sent me the picture of the dress to feature in this polyvore set, I was ecstatic! This dress is definitely one that I would purchase for myself. I was trying to decide if I wanted to dress up or down this Lead by Example Dress and ultimately decided to go business casual. Business casual is pretty much what I wear all week at the office and I had fun dream shopping while creating this set! Modcloth has tons of cute dresses and accessories that are not only affordable but classic and on trend.

This cool guy is 7 months old today! Since the last update, Mr. Lucas has started to crawl, eat solids, and on Saturday he said his first word! DADA! Or more like dadadadadadada. Which actually works to my advantage because if I'm exhausted and Lucas needs attention, he now yells dadadada, and I can now look at my husband and say he wants you.
I decided to make his baby food and I am obsessed! His favorites are sweet potatoes, bananas, and oatmeal. He absolutely LOVES music!
Since he was a newborn, the only song that would put him to sleep was Lennon and Maisy's version of Ho Hey. Now, he is mesmerized by Jeremy Groves' Stay the Night and I love video chatting with my sister so she can see his reaction since Jeremy is her boyfriend. He could be screaming his head off but the second you play either of these songs, he's completely quiet and will soon fall asleep. However, on Sunday we learned that the Beatles Yesterday has the opposite effect...weird.
This little guy has quite the personality and has stolen my heart. I can't believe he's already 7 months old...I may even be already planning his first birthday party...

So this is off topic from the things I usually blog about but I SWEAR it's worth it! My sister's boyfriend, Jeremy Groves, is an amazing musician and yesterday he released his single Stay the Night. It is absolutely one of the best songs I've heard in awhile and, although I may be biased, I promise that it's my honest opinion! I teared up a little because it has such a beautiful melody and I love the lyrics. It's the perfect song to hear on repeat right before Valentine's day!

The past two or so weeks I've been hit with major working mommy guilt...I mean epic meltdowns. The catalyst was definitely when my mom, who watches him three days a week, called me at work and said I should call the pediatrician because Lucas was having a bad skin reaction after his 6 months shots. The doctor's office recommended that he come in immediately to rule out anything serious. Since I was still at the office, I tried my best to make it to the hospital but by the time I got to the doctor's office, Lucas was already seen. I talked to the nurse and she told me it was nothing serious but I was boo hoo crying as if I missed his wedding. Ever since then, it's been increasingly getting harder to leave him in the mornings; especially since he has learned how to wave goodbye...
Since my husband and I work together at the same firm, we are able to take nice lunches together and spend time together away from the office. Therefore, weekends have become our time to get our Lucas fix. The past couple of weekends have been weekends of firsts for my little guy. He got his first haircut, started crawling, and played in the playground recently. I tried to wait until he was a year old for his first haircut but that hair was getting unruly! As much as I love his crazy hair, it was time for a little trim. I am absolutely loving weekends and if you can't tell by now, I'm pretty obsessed with my boy and spending every second of every day with him!

I've been absent lately and will resume to regularly posting soon. These past two weeks I've had crazy deadlines and early morning or out of town hearings so I am exhausted. I'm still learning how to balance my life and, unfortunately, blogging is my favorite hobby and I've had to put it on the back burner. And there was no way I was going to blog about my makeup less crazy hair self! Trust me, you don't need to see those pictures ;-)
I am happy that it's Friday and even planning on going to a Valentine's day party this weekend with Lucas. Have a happy weekend!
