life lately

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

i feel like my tuesdays are my new mondays. weekends are always packed and i find myself regrouping on mondays and not even able to put out a blogpost to start the week. oh well. 

there will certainly be days like that and i'm finding that it happens more and more lately. this past weekend, we took a quick trip to chicago to visit family - glad to be able to spend time with my sister and also hang out with ben's family at the same time. 

the weather was perfect. we strolled down michigan avenue, get to visit an amazing italian restaurant (excellent!), window shopped and also met the architect/designer for a little project we are getting ready to start soon. 

despite a cancelled flight early sunday and more delayed flights on our way back to houston, i felt like we were able to accomplish a lot in a short weekend trip. we made it back home super late sunday night ~ tired yet relieved. just happy to be back home sweet home. 

fall fashion for kiddos

i don't know about you but everytime fall comes around, our little guy's fall outfits no longer fit him! i try my best to take advantage of end of season sales to grab bigger size shirts, jackets and pants so he can wear them the next time fall comes around! 

i do miss a few things everytime, like caps or gloves but in case you need to do some shopping for the little ones, here are a few things that caught my eye : 

i always forget to get him halloween pjs too!

happy fall

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

yesterday was officially the first day of fall. here in houston, we actually had a first taste of fall weather early in the morning with temperatures as low as 65 degrees. nevermind that it only lasted a few hours, i still enjoyed waking up and leaving the house on a nice crisp fall morning! 


so much to look forward to this season ~ aston's halloween parade at school, celebrating halloween (great that it falls on a friday night this year), football weekends, anticipating thanksgiving and the holidays!
