Life Lately

I don’t know if it’s because of the season or what, but I cant keep track of time! I feel like weeks are flying by at warp speed. Here are some things that have been happening around here!


Little Eloise is six months old! She now sits, splashes in the bath, talks more and says different syllables like “baba” and “dada.” She loves to hit and bang her hands and is still the most sunshiny baby I’ve ever seen. We are so smitten with her! We are so blessed to have her as part of our family! Half a year; that flew by!

Scarlett had her last dance class last week. I am going to miss watching those crazy three & four-year-olds running around! Here’s Scarlett with her best friend Hannah. dance class

Scarlett requested we have matching Elsa hair. So of course, I obliged. And then she requested a picture. This is my dream realized!

Our friend flew up from Florida to go to the Patriot’s game last weekend, so we did a little sightseeing while he was up. We went into New Haven and walked around and saw a lot of Yale, some of which we hadn’t seen before! I can’t believe how big and beautiful that school is. New Haven is one of my favorite places!

Since we have had kids, we have opened Christmas jammies on Christmas Eve. While I love that tradition, I was always disappointed that we couldn’t get more use out of them in the Christmas season. So, we decided to open them early! Each year with kids gets more fun!

My friend hosted an awesome gingerbread decorating party for our group of friends! It was so much fun. In years past we would construct the houses and then decorate immediately after, but the houses would inevitable fall apart. She made them ahead of time so we could get right into decorating and it worked out great!

Levi had fallen off our little trampoline that morning and onto his bike. Poor guy is always getting himself hurt!

Some of the bunch!

Eloise was a huge fan too. Just watching was enough for her! (Bib from [eafl id=861 name=”copper pearl bib” text=”here”] and we LOVE them! Eloise is so drooly and is always getting rashes on her neck. They are so soft and cute so I don’t mind her wearing them! Not an ad. We just love them!)

Our wonderful friends sent Scarlett this beautiful Cinderella dress and she is in love! And so am I! Now she is finally wearing another dress other than the hoop skirt one. Cinderella was Scarlett’s first favorite princess. I mean, did you see the hips on it? Adorable! Dressing up will never get old!cinderella

Marcus and I were able to steal away for a double date night with our friends. We don’t get out often with other couples so it was so nice! We don’t have any Christmas parties this year so I used that excuse to wear my sequined shirt. But do I really need a reason? 

We were so surprised when we got there to find out that my sister and her husband were at the SAME restaurant! And we both were a half an hour from our homes. So crazy! Here she is stalking me before I realized she was there. It just makes me laugh so hard whenever I look at it!


Some of my family came down last weekend so we had a nice game night. There is nothing like family!

My husband is so sweet. When people stay at our home, we pull out all the stops! He set up this cute breakfast buffet while I cooked waffles. img_1083

  1. Love seeing what you all are doing for the holidays! I’m definitely putting a gingerbread house decorating party on my calendar for next year, it looks like it was so much fun ? And thanks for the bib rec, I love the bandana bibs for Max, but hadn’t seen those on Amazon before. Their patterns are adorable!

    1. Those bibs are my favorite! They are actually cute, and even more functional than standard ones. They are so soft! The gingerbread decorating party is so much fun! Definitely build them ahead of time for maximized success. We learned the hard way ?
