Easy Breezy Summer Tops with Plus Size Options

Summertime always calls for no-fuss breezy clothing.  Especially living in Florida where the temperature is hot and hotter, clothes must be breathable.  Although most of my favorite tops have sleeves on them, I love tunics in the summer because the gauzy fabrics aren't uncomfortable and I love a baggy fit.

Lucas' First Birthday Party

I started planning Lucas' party little by little a few months ago.  We went with a "prince" and my mom and I slowly began gathering things in his birthday colors.  My husband made the awesome invitations!  I helped by putting the wax seal on the back but that was the extent of my help with the invitations.  We did a lot of crafting such as making the banner and the crown.  Since the day was for Lucas, I really wanted to make sure that there were fun things for him to do and for the kids and babies coming over.  We turned the patio into a playroom that had a water table, slide, tunnel, coloring books, ball pit, and a station to make a crown.  The crown station was a hit!  As for the smash cake, yeah, he was not so interested.  I basically had to place his hands in the cake because he did not want to get dirty.  Lucas played a lot, laughed a ton, and flirted with everyone.  Overall, a great time was had by all!

12 Months Old

Welp, this is my last Lucas update because Lucas is 12 months old!  I have a one year old...where did the year go?    This past Friday was his first birthday and it took everything in me not to cry.  He is now so interactive and talkative/babbles.  He says lots of "words" but he most likely does not know what they mean or direct them to one person.  He loves music, cars, blocks, Mickey's Clubhouse, and Jake the Pirate.  He walks like a little maniac and throws some serious tantrums.  I don't give into those so I don't want to reinforce the behavior but, man, has he perfected the art of a tantrum and it's usually because I won't let him play with something dangerous.  I know, bad mommy.  He still takes two a day and sleeps from 7:00 p.m.-6:45 a.m. throughout the night.  We're still working on regular food vs. purees but he sure does like to eat.  Overall, he's a great baby boy and we are all still so in love with him!  It's been an amazing year and it's been so much fun sharing these updates here.

His "prince" party was this past Saturday and I'll share some of those photos this week!

Bad blogger!  Bad blogger!  Just when I start getting into the posting groove, poof!  Work hits me hard and Lucas' birthday party approaches (this weekend and so excited/sentimental!)  Just when I start thinking things will start slowing down, they multiple.  I won't complain though since there are worse things in the world.  My little guy's party is this weekend and this Friday he'll turn one...ONE!  I think I'll sign off now that I got misty eyed thinking about my baby no longer being a baby ;-(

Summer Florals

Lately, I've been loving bright, fun colors and patterns.  Seen as though this time last year I was wearing the same black dress because it was the only thing that fit my massive preggo belly, colors and variety is such a nice change.  J.Crew Factory has really hit it out of the park this season and I love that I'm able to find prints I didn't get the chance to purchase at J.Crew.  I'm sort of on a shopping hiatus since I'm saving up for furniture at the new house but that doesn't mean that I can't dream shop and if I accidentally hit the checkout button and oops I get a confirmation email with my order, that's okay too ;-)

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!
