Lucy’s 1st Fiesta

TACO BOUT A PARTY!!!! I’m a bit of an obsessed planner.  I look on Pinterest for months, and in this case, well over a year for ideas.  When I was still pregnant with Lucy, I was pinning on a secret Pinterest board, ideas for Lou’s first big party.  And you know what happened?  A month before her birthday I changed themes.  It was originally going to be a luau- how cute is that?  Lucy’s Luau?!  Well, it was Fiesta time in Texas over Lucy’s birthday and I just had to  ...

Lucy Kaye: A Birth Story

This day, one year ago, Chase and I became parents.  I can’t say the birth story is very exciting or dramatic but it was just perfect.  Here is our tale of how we became a family of 3!   The evening before, I had been experiencing some prelabor twinges, so we went for a walk in the park hoping to speed things along.  I woke up at 3 in the morning and could tell it was the day!  Chase and I timed the contractions at home for the next few hours- by 5 am,  ...

Trend I’m Loving: Cactus Print

Along with the dawning of summer, bright and fun prints comes with it.  This year, the print of the season is cactus!  I love the fun takes on the prickly plant, from cartoon-esque drawings, to sequins, to photo prints.  The colors that go along side the cactus prints are some of my favorites: washes of green with pinks, preferrable a blush tone. cactus shoes // cactus shirtdress  &lt;br /&gt;<br />

Beginning Camping Season at Sheep Creek

Our annual fishing excursion to the Duck Valley Indian Reservoir signals a sort of waking from a winter long hibernation of outdoor activity.  It marks the first camping trip of the season, and definitely not the last.  This year was all the same as the past and also quite a bit different, with a baby in tow.  Especially with a baby who just wanted to get down in the dirt and stuff handfuls of rocks into her mouth.  What stayed the same, is that it gets cold and WINDY.  ...

A Little Lambie for Lucy

As they are for most children, Easter baskets were always such a fun tradition at our house.  I still associate the Starburst jellybeans with said tradition, and my family still jokes about a little stuffed toy that would say “Happy Easter!” in the most annoying, obnoxious voice us siblings got one of the years.  I realize Lucy will not remember this first Easter, so I’m not going to pretend I went all out or anything.  But I did find a precious little  ...
