Central Park

Shock to no one that I went back to the park for a second time.  It's literally my favorite.  Saturday morning, we ate breakfast at the Laduree restaurant down near Soho and walked a bit through the area before taking a taxi up near our hotel.  I was on a little bit of a mission.  I had just recently purchased this bag that I wore the beginning of our trip but I was on the hunt for the one I'm wearing here.  I loved seeing the monogram a lot of other people have but I desired the all black bag as it's something a little more classic that I can wear to work and out and about.  I have been dreaming about this bag since I saw it online.  I went into an LV store in Orlando but they were all out and told me that it was unlikely that any store would have any in soon.  The first day I was in New York, I went to both LV stores and the boutique in Saks had ONE bag.  As I thought more about it, I started feeling guilty about indulging and treating myself.  My husband kept trying to buy it but I said I wanted to think about it even though I not so secretly wanted it badly.  It's strange because before kids, I didn't think twice before I bought something for myself, now with kids, I literally think of every little detail and try to talk myself out of everything.  Sure enough, the next day, the bag was gone.  As we walked through 5th Avenue to get to the park, we meandered into the 5th Avenue LV store, and there it was!  As I was trying it on in front of a mirror, two other women were asking for it and I could hear the women asking the SA if they could purchase it.  It was just meant to be and although it was definitely a splurge and I'm done buying handbags for a long time, it is my favorite bag ever.  I've been wearing it non-stop since buying it and immediately put my stuff in it in the store and walked out (after paying, of course).  

As soon as we got to the park, I promptly took out my Laduree macarons (yum!) and walked through until we got to the Boathouse.  We bought some pretzels, people watched, the weather was perfect, and, ugh, take me back!  It was another great day in the city.  In the afternoon, we freshened up at the hotel to get ready for dinner and to see my little sister hard at work at Saturday Night Live!

That Time I Matched My Kids

Yep, that's right.  I bought us all matching outfits.  No shame in my game.  I even bought my husband a matching shirt but he wouldn't wear it.  Rude.  So he looked like the odd man out, not me of course.  The lady matching her kids, nope, I didn't look weird AT ALL.  In fact, I plan on matching my kids in the future.  Yep.  In all seriousness, I couldn't wait for this day to come.  When I was little, my mom made us all match and I hated it.  Now, I plan on trying to get away with matching as much as I can.  Since I know my husband doesn't read here often, I'm going to make sure he is in the car and not looking when I put the kids in the car so that when we get to our destination, POOF, we're ALL matching and he won't have an opportunity to change.  I'm a genius.

Pumpkin Patch 2015


We had a great little weekend that included a trip to the pumpkin patch.  It's a new tradition we started once Lucas was born to go buy a pumpkin at a pumpkin patch and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite fall activities.  The weather was great and the company was even better!  I love living in a world with Octobers :-)

Holiday BBQ


It's a shame when my 11 month old is tanner than me.  My glaring paleness aside, we enjoyed a fun filled weekend of bbq's and shopping.  It was a long weekend that was much needed.  We went to my in laws home for the 4th of July then the rest of the weekend was either spent playing at home or out and about.  I could get use to these kinds of weekends.  I hope it was a safe and relaxing weekend for all!

Down, Set, Hike!


Don't worry because this cute little football did not get spiked.  It was his first Gator football game, though!  Hence my super glamorous get up.  I've never been the girl to dress up or look put together for football games but I envy those girls that do.  Lucas slept through most of the game but we liked to pretend and say that he was watching the whole time.  

The night of the game, my sister and parents kept Lucas for the night.  I thought I would be okay and had plans to do a little shopping in the evening then have dinner with my husband but my hormones had different plans.  I was a crying mess and had to take a Tylenol PM.  Seriously.  I'm a mess though Lucas, I hear, had a great time and slept a lot.  The only thing that kept me from going to pick Lucas up (which by the way was just a mile away from me) was realizing that my husband and I really needed just one good night of sleep.  We got the sleep and then rushed to pick up our baby early Sunday morning.  How I will ever go back to work and not cry all day is a mystery to me.  Any advice is much appreciated!

This weekend, my husband and I accomplished so much for our little Lucas.  On Saturday, we (and by we I mean my husband) pretty much finished the entire nursery with just a few things missing.  On Sunday, we took a day trip to Tampa to visit my sister, Melisa.  Not only did she and my mom buy more cute clothes for Lucas but Melisa surprised us with a bag FULL of more goodies.  Pictures of Lucas' loot are on my instagram.  Lucas will definitely be one spoiled little boy :-)  I hope it was a good weekend for all!
