Feels like Summer

Blaire eating ice cream

Well, we went from 50s to 80s here in the midwest and it’s fine. I’ll take whatever I can get at this point! I just want to pack away the long sleeves and break out all of Blaire’s cute dresses and the water table she got for her birthday back in February. We had a great Mother’s Day. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know we…

Updated Family Pictures

We had some new family pictures taken in May and they’re the best! They capture Blaire’s little personality perfectly. This stage of our life is so fun. Blaire has so much fun with her mom and dad. I’m loving this time when she thinks we are super cool! ;) We are lucky to have a photographer who is so amazing with children. She kept telling Blaire, “don’t laugh!”…

My Favorite Purchases This Week

Spring Home Decor

This week has been a fun one! That days are longer, but the weather has been all over the place. We started the week with sunshine, had lots of rain midweek, some snow, more rain… and we’re back to sunshine. For now, at least. I even have the windows open today! Major win. While I guess I’m all for Spring Cleaning, I’m more for Spring Shopping. Spring is…

Mama + Mini: Easter Style

Mama Easter Style 2016

How in the world is it already Easter? While I was super on top of Blaire’s Easter outfit and Easter Basket… I realized I have totally dropped the ball on my own outfit. I know I’ve said it before, but to me it’s worth repeating: This Easter Jason will officially become Catholic. We are so, so excited that we will now be able to celebrate our religion together as a…

Spring Style for Mama + Mini

Mini Spring Style 2016

Looking at our 5 day forecast, there are some 50°, and even 60° days, on the horizon. And that means it’s time to put away the winter clothes and break out some fun (new!) Spring clothes. You know I love a good round up, so here are my favorite spring style pieces for mama and mini. For tiny clothes, I’m feeling all the bright colors and lots of…

Mama + Mini Headbands

You know I love, love, love fall fashion! And now that it’s been under 75° consistently for the past week and a half, I’m finally ready to pack away our sandals and shorts. Woo hoo! This means we’re breaking out our fall wardrobe. So not only are fall clothes my favorite, but you also know I love matching my mini. These mommy & me turbans are so freaking cute! Blaire has…

On Sundays We Wear Kimonos

Happy Sunday! Another weekend has come and gone wayyyy too quickly! Our only real plan for this weekend was a birthday party on Saturday afternoon. We had so much fun with friends and Blaire was super excited to get to spend some quality time with her buddy James. He’s two months older than her and they are SO cute together! She had a lot more fun watching the…

Splash of Summer

A few days now it’s felt like summer and I’m PUMPED! I’m so excited to actually spend some time outside this year and maybe even get a tan. Maybe I’ll even buy some shorts that fit me this year?! Ha. Probably not. One of my favorite summer pieces to buy for Blaire are swim suits! We have some trips planned this summer and also plan to spend lots of…

My Mini

I had always, always thought that I wanted to have a boy first. When I was still in my first trimester, I found the Little Baby Garvin Blog through Pinterest. She has a little girl, Harper, who was born almost exactly two years before Blaire. Reading through her posts and looking at all of her pictures of Harper just melted my heart. I immediately took back every prayer I had…

Pretty Pineapples

I am so excited for the warmer temps, and warm temps = bright clothes! That’s why I’m really loving pineapples. Blaire and I each have a few pieces that we just can’t stop wearing. I title this picture below #teethingbabyproblems. ;) I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pineapple pieces, but these are really just the tip of the pyramid. It seems like everywhere I turn there’s another adorable…

Blaire’s First Thanksgiving + Our Weekend

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has been here and gone, and now it’s December! We had a busy Thanksgiving Day with both of our families. Since my family lives an hour away, we went to my aunt’s house to have lunch with everyone (Except for my parents who are currently in Aruba. Must be nice!) We got to meet my cousin’s three-week-old daughter for the first time. She is…

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
