Mamanista Fridays: Florals

This year is moving at record speeds!  I can't believe it's about to be March!  When March arrives I tend to move full speed with spring fashions.  This week for Mamanista Fridays we are wearing florals.  Florals are on trend for spring.  I actually own more floral items than I thought. I have a few pair of pants, dresses, tops and skirts.   I decided to wear the new addition to my floral collection, a navy floral dress from Lulu's.

Peyton’s Favorite Snacks: The Good Bad & Ugly

I’m amazed by how picky and opinionated kids can be about what they eat.   When I introduce a new healthy snack, I feel like I’m walking into my boss’s office to ask for a raise.  Not really, but almost.  It’s either yay or nay with this little one.  Mostly nay.   When I was a kid, I was happy to get any snack offered to me.

Spring Moto Jacket

This weekend I realized I just can't run around like I used too.  I had a action packed weekend scheduled.  My Saturday started out with a private lunch for the Bronner Brothers Hair Show, then met up with Mister to get Peyton to take her to Mimi's house for a Disney party and then to the Hawk vs. Knicks basketball game.  Whew... I'm tired again just thinking about it.  Sunday morning I woke up with a crazy migraine that lasted until the afternoon.  I had events scheduled for Sunday but I didn't make it. I'm getting old.  Peyton had a great time and that's all that matters.

Abby & Co. Grand Opening

A new "Family" boutique has arrived in Atlanta!  Abby & Co. held their Grand Opening party on Monday.  I'm totally in love with Abby & Co.  If this blog was a store it would look just like Abby & Co.!  Seriously, it's a one stop shop for fabulous moms!  Abby & Co. carries the trendiest clothes for the little ones, hard to find toys and baby gear, gifts for your girls, and fabulous clothes for the moms!

Wanted: New Hairstyle

I'm looking for a change.  I've been wearing extensions for years.  They are easy to maintain, convenient and my hair (weave) always looks good.  But I'm kind of over it (for right now).  I need a new do!  I want a style that I can wear with my natural hair.

The Cold Shoulder

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day!  Glad we didn't have any big plans for V-Day.  Just as I called it, Mister got the bug that Peyton and I had.  So the weekend was spent nursing him back to health.  Glad that's over!

Happy Valentine's Day Dolls!  After this crazy week, I'm looking forward to enjoying a quite evening at the crib.  Since all the stores have been closed this week, I still need to make Peyton a Valentine's basket.  She asked me if she was going to get a Valentine's card...Aww! Yes Baby!  The theme for Mamanista Friday's is Valentine's Day.

Baby Fashion Week Day 4: Lady in Red

This week has been nutz!  I had some kind of stomach bug on Monday and P got it yesterday.  Thankfully they are only lasting for 24hrs.  I'm sure Mister is up next.  On top of that, the city has been crippled with snow since Tuesday so you can't really go anywhere.  So ready for things to be "normal" again.  The Babiators event that was to be held tonight will be rescheduled, date tbd.  Peyton has one more Baby Fashion Week outfit to share.  Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow it's only right that Peyton wear the color of love.

Family Valentine's Day Gifts Ideas

I can't believe Valentine's day is next Friday!  Mister and I typically just go out an have dinner for V-day but this year I think we will be celebrating at the crib with Peyton.  Since we won't be going out, it's OK for Mister to buy me something nice.  I was planning on sharing my Valentine's wish list but I figured I would make this a family affair.

Luxe for Less: Everlane

The older I get I realize that I need to back away from these teeny bopper cheap stores.  My nerves frayed while shopping in these stores with all the “OMG”, “Totes” and giggling going on.   I’m in the fitting room trying on things that don’t fit and asking myself “What am I doing here”.  Moving forward, my goal is to focus on quality and not quantity.  Every grown woman needs to own quality pieces of classic wardrobe essentials like a pair of nice jeans, a great handbag, sweaters and the list goes on.  One thing I've always wanted to have in my closet was something Cashmere!   Once you touch some good cashmere you know why people over pay for this luxury material.  If you are coveting luxurious cashmere and silk pieces for your grown woman wardrobe for a realistic price, Everlane has you covered!

Awesome All Day

I hope you guys had a great weekend.  Peyton and I are taking a break today.  We've been traveling this weekend to support my good friend that lost her 14 month old son.  I'm so heartbroken for her, her husband and their 5 year old son.  I wish I could take just a little of the pain away.  I didn't want to say anything on the blog because this is hard to except.  Please say a prayer for my friend and the family. 

While we try to get back on our routine around here, I would love if you would head over to the FabKids blog, Awesome All Day to check out the Little Fashionista feature on Peyton.   Head over to get the inside scoop on Peyton's style and fashion tips.  Thank you for your support!
