Memorial Day Weekend Outfit

As I’m trying to get my life together post vaca (it always takes me days to finish laundry, putting things back and emptying the suitcases with the little one jumping around – not easy) I wanted to share one look I wore in Italy that’s just perfect for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend! I’m looking forward to some much needed family time as my husband couldn’t join us for our trip to Europe.

This dress is super comfy and perfect for barbecuing, sipping drinks, and chasing after your kids! It’s labeled as a ‘mini’ dress but being 5’4 ft it’s the perfect length for me. The dress has a round neck, tiers and the cutest frilled elbow-length sleeves. I’m wearing the white and red, but it’s also available in white and blue!

12 Month Update

The day of Luca’s 1st birthday has come and went by so quickly and now it has already been a week that we have a one-year-old! I’m still a little in denial but he’s proving me every day that instead of my little baby boy I am a mom to a sweet toddler now! It’s so crazy to me how fast this year went by.

Luca’s actual birthday was last Thursday which we ended up at the doctor’s office with his second ear infection 😦 Luckily we got rid of it just in time for his birthday party on Sunday which I will put a blog post together hopefully this weekend. The hubby has officially left the house for a bachelor weekend and I’m hoping to get all things crossed off my to-do list – we will see how much I can actually accomplish. Stay tuned!

Latest tricks: Walking like a champ but still need a finger or something/ someone to hold onto for security (I’m blaming it on being sick twice in the last month which somewhat caused a setback); he does really well when he is unaware that he is actually walking and has done 8 steps all by himself so far, not that I’m counting and have my camera in my hand at all times… He also manages to feed himself with a fork when food is on it.

Daily routine: For just two days last week got a major scare thinking he was done with his morning nap but thankfully he is back on track with his sleeping schedule. waking up around 7 am, morning nap around 9-9.30 am, afternoon nap between 1 and 2 pm and bedtime at 7.30 pm. We still love going to our Mommy and me class, run errands, take Henry to the park or to the lake.

Foods: We have started giving him probiotics to build up his immune system again after getting sick twice and having to take antibiotics for 10 whole days and I just mike it in his pancakes or eggs for breakfast. It has only been a week though so I am not quite sure there has been a difference. For lunch and dinner, we always try to give him fruit first like cut grapes (current favorite!), strawberries, bananas, pear, or kiwi. then usually follow with bread with cream cheese, noodles, veggies, soy in form of vegan hot dogs, sausage or tofurky (all available at trader joes), and sometimes add apple sauce or yogurt at the end.

Favorites: Along with his birthday he was showered with new toys and the ones he’s been playing with the most are his Lego Duplo sets, a little tikes guitar (similar one here), a school bus, and still Mr. Bear (his giant stuffed teddy bear).

We’ve been enjoying having my mom in town from Germany, but we will take her back to the airport tomorrow. And then in just less than a week, we will start Luca and I will start our journey back to the homeland as well. I’ve been really nervous about this flight for several reasons. For one I am once again flying by myself and have Luca on my lap during the whole 10-hour flight, and additionally, he has become so active, he can never sit still or will fall asleep on my without being extremely tired or nursed. Planning on writing a post about our flight experience no matter the outcome.

Spring Fashion Favorites

So excited to share two of my favorite outfits for this season with you! I had the pleasure to team up with a local DFW photographer and it was so much fun to shoot these. Unfortunately, we picked the windiest day to take pictures and a lot of them looked all crazy with all my hair in my face. But take a look! I’ll try my best to include links for my outfit details!

My blouse was from Zara but is already sold out, but here are some similar ones from SheIn  and Zara’s, and another one from SheIn.

Mid-rise pink skinny jeans also from Zara.

My heels are from the Target and Altuzarra from a few years back, they are so comfy and I always get compliments on them! Here are some similar ones from Target and Nordstrom.

My 2nd outfit is a little more summery with the cutest navy gingham (yes, again!) and eyelet detailed skort perfect for running after your little 1 year old lol!
