Thanksgiving Day Family Pictures

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we took family pictures with my parents and sisters.  My little sister picked out the cutest little suit from H&M for Lucas to wear.  I couldn't stand the cuteness!  As for what I was going to wear, I was stumped.  Not to keep playing my little violin, but my old clothes are still not fitting like they did pre-pregnancy so I'm limited with options.  The day before we took these pictures, I saw this picture on Tara from Mix and Match Fashion's instagram and knew it was what I would wear.  Thanks, Tara!

My little dapper man was just as handsome as ever as he obviously channeled his inner Justin Timberlake with his suit and tie.  He loves his aunts so much.  Melisa makes him LAUGH so hard that his body shakes.  And he loves staring at Adriana then giving her a coy smile.  He thinks she's pretty :-)

If you are like me and have trouble thinking of what to wear in the mornings, there's an awesome new website called The Style Up.  After you sign up, you will receive one email each day with an outfit inspiration that matches what your local weather will be that day.  Isn't that so cool?!  The lovely team over at The Style Up recently featured me on their blog here.  I love getting my Style Up emails each night and they are such a big help!

On me: J Crew Plaid Shirt, J Crew Cardi, Stuart Weitzman Capsize shoes

It should come to no surprise what I am most thankful of this sweet baby boy, Lucas.  I am so thankful for his existence, health, and love.  I am thankful for my family and especially for my husband.  My entire family has been so supportive and loving.  I am incredibly thankful to have such an amazing husband and an even more incredible father.  He is truly a rockstar and together, we have a pretty amazing life.  I am also thankful for those of you that read my blog.  Your comments and emails bring a smile to my face and warm my heart.  Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, I'm giving thanks for:

1. This guy and that little girl...

My husband and I started dating in high school.  Since this time, we graduated from schools, moved away from home, passed bar exams, married, moved back home, traveled, started practicing law...we've been through so much and I can only hope that the next 60+ years are as amazing as the past decade and a half.  Together, we have an amazing life and family that will one day expand but for now, our cozy family of three (little Mia, the doxy) are as happy as can be.

2. These two crazy kids...

Aren't my mami and papi cute?!  They are funny, obnoxious (don't get offended, Mom!), caring, loving, and all the good things great parents are suppose to be.  Did I mention they are funny and not on purpose?  They taught and are still teaching my sisters and I so much that I don't think I will ever be able to repay them.  Love you guys!

3.  These silly little sisters...

They make me laugh, sometimes drive me crazy (as I probably do to them as well) but they are my little sisters and I love them dearly.  We've been through a lot but we are always able to laugh later.  I'm very proud to be your big sister.

4. That stressful thing I do every day called my job...

Yes, job, you stress me out but I can't imagine doing anything else...besides being independently wealthy of course ;-)  In all seriousness, it has always been my dream to practice law and now that I am, I have to remind myself sometimes that I am doing exactly what I've always wanted to do and that I'm blessed.  It might sound cliche but I enjoy helping solve people's issues.  I feel fulfilled and gratified and hope these feelings never go away.

5. YOU!

I first started reading blogs in 2010 when I was planning my weddings and stumbled upon a fashion blog.  I was hooked!  I thought about starting this blog back then but never got around to it.  Now, it is like my own little personal space that I never thought anyone would know about.  I never knew what the blogging community was until you, readers, welcomed me.  This is such an amazing community and I'm so happy to have connected with other bloggers and readers.  I look forward to coming home from work and checking my emails, comments, and your blog posts.  I've enjoyed "getting to know" some of you through your own blogs.  Basically, you are awesome :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!
