Pink and Green Cake Smash

 Photographs by Karen Morneau Photography

Cake, anyone? When I first saw these 1st birthday cake smash sessions I knew we had to do it! Karen made it so easy... we just had to show up to her studio and the cake and balloons were waiting for us. I love that the cake is personalized... it saved me the rush of getting something monogrammed. We based the color scheme around her pink and green romper from Janie and Jack. I can't get enough of these photos, they always make me smile.

Eyes on Eyelet

Eyelet Blouse: Madewell (also available at Nordstrom). Jeans: Madewell (also available at Nordstrom). Jacket: Forever 21 (old, similar). Bracelets: David Yurman 1,2.
Moccasins: Freshly Picked. Bow: Etsy.

White eyelet... right there with plaid, gingham and stripes on my hard to resist list. My top is on sale now and has been one of my favorites this spring. It has 3/4 sleeves and is a basic style so I know I'll wear it next year. I have also been wearing it with this oversized cardigan.

I buy most of Lexi's clothes from Gap online. There is always, always a sale going on. I constantly look at the new arrivals because the best things go fast, like this floral sweatshirt and pants. So cute!

Anyway... my weekend was pretty relaxing. We had friends over on Friday night for tacos and margaritas (I had been craving one all week) and I went to a baby shower on Sunday. I didn't get as far as I would have liked to with my photo organization project I mentioned on Friday... it's just never ending. Finally, I got a little shopping in. I bought a few new things to try from Sephora, including this hairspray that I already love. We also accompanied Ted to Bass Pro Shop. I swear I can find something to buy at most stores and this is one I have a very hard time...  but I had to laugh on the way out when I spotted these knock off Jack Rogers for $20.

Here are a few other tops and dresses that caught my eye.

Thanks for stopping by... I've been staying up pretty late to blog again (the only chance I have) and appreciate that you all are still coming back to read it!

Happy Friday! These are a few of Lexi's photos from her one year shoot a few weeks ago. Her sweet dress is from the Beaufort Bonnet Company. I'll be sharing her pink and green themed cake smash next week.

This weekend I'll be attempting to organize my photos... digital spring cleaning. I left off  in November so have several months to catch up on. I upload my camera and iPhone photos into folders on an external hard drive by month. It's been my goal to keep up with it at least every 6 months, print copies and make albums. This round will be just in time for Mother's Day... albums always make a great gift. I go back and forth with sites that I should backup my photos on. I currently use Shutterfly for albums, but open to other options. Would love some feedback!

Have a great weekend!

Blue and White Obsessed: Champagne Bucket

PSA for the blue and white obsessed like me... you need this champagne bucket! When I spotted it in the new AERIN collection at Williams Sonoma I had to have it. I figure that most promotions are going to exclude this collection, so no use in waiting to order. So much for the cutting board I was going to get (and why I was on the site in the first place) ...

I was even more excited when I saw it featured on Waiting on Martha and could see the size. Love that it can fit more than one bottle. Eeee! I can't wait to use it. I also saw some other posts where people use it as a vase.

Blue and white obsessed... hmmm this could be a weekly series. What do you think?

We had the best Easter weekend with Lexi! She had 3 baskets of goodies that I have attempted to keep out of her reach for a couple weeks. I had fun picking things out over the past few months for it (sadly she wasn't having it when I put on her Beaufort Bonnet... let's hope her feelings change at the beach this summer). The green bunny is a Japanese toy called Jabber Ball... when you squeeze it the tongue sticks out and it makes the funniest sound. I found it at the cutest kids store in Westport, Pink Lemon Blue Lime. I think I will play with it as much as she does.

After we opened her baskets we went out to enjoy the beautiful day. We haven't spent much time outside since she started walking. She loved running around and exploring... can't wait for the summer with her!

 Lexi's Dress: Gap. Sunglasses: Janie & Jack. Bow: Etsy.

Happy Easter!
