Mommy & Me Shoes

To say that Sienna and I have a pair of matching shoes is definitely an understatement. We actually have three pairs and are on our way to number four! 

YES…I am that mom. 

And I love every minute of it!

The hard part about having matching shoes with your toddler is that their feet grow so fast! She is already on her second pair of gold Saltwater Sandals and her leopard flats are about to be one size too small. Mommy is in need of some new ones so maybe we will switch it up to a loafer style next!

Can you believe that she actually received her little purple Hunter boots before me? So I made sure Santa brought me mine a few weeks later ;) These will also have to be replaced when she outgrows them because let's be honest, who doesn't love splashing in muddy puddles?

And now I've started my Yosi Samra obsession! They are the cutest and comfiest ballet flats I've ever had. And guess what?? Yep, you guessed it: they have a fabulous little girl selection! 

Love my little mini-me :)

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's day is right around the corner and if you are a busy, procrastinating mom like me you probably haven't picked up a gift for the father in your life. I've been scouring the web and came across some gifts that  would make a popular gift for every dad...

(Clockwise from the top)

1. Chillsner Beer Chilling Set-This is one of my favorite gifts from the guide! These frozen chillers fit perfectly inside your beer bottle and allow to you drink the beer while it stays ICY cold the entire time! I may just order these once I'm done with this post and hope it gets here in time...I would Danny would love these ;-)

2. Classic Checkered Skinny Tie- Every man needs a skinny tie in their wardrobe. My dad nor Danny own one so now may be the time to help them with their dad swag!

3. Nike Men's Heritage Golf Shoe- Do you have a dad in your life that just golfs occasionally? This shoe seems perfect! I'm sure there are plenty of golf shoes with a heftier price tag, but these seem great to wear out to the driving range.

4. Field Trip All Natural Beef Jerky- What guy doesn't love beef jerky? This jerky is low fat and all natural, leaving out all those pesky preservatives and additives. I'm sure any dad would just dive right in!

5.  The Big Green Egg-If you have a dad or a husband who loves to smoke their food and barbecue, chances are you've heard them talk about the Big Green Egg smoker or they already own it. If you want to be considered daughter/son/wife of the year...this gift will buy you that title ;-)

Happy Shopping!

Please Don't Grow...

Danny happened to get two consecutive days off this week so we did what any Floridian would do and went to the beach! It's days like these that we are so grateful to have the beach as our backyard :) Before dinner we let the kids run around in a grassy area and I of course went picture happy.

They are so flippin' cute at this age and I am really trying to soak in every.single.moment. Sienna is already a little person and every day I'm amazed at what comes out of her mouth. Daniel is still a little baby and is quickly turning into a little man. Every day I squeeze him because I know it's the last day he will be that small...

Days like these make me want to have more babies (because I literally go back and forth every day of my life)...then we took them to a late dinner and had a double baby meltdown and had to take both of our dinners to go. I mean what were we really thinking letting them run around and wear themselves out before dinner?

Here are some special moments I captured...

Dont ask me what she's doing...^^

And but of could we not try for the self timer shot?  I think we are starting to get the hang of it compared to this one
Love our life with les deux :)
Daniel: Shirt and shoes are from H&M//Shorts from Target
Sienna: Shirt from H&M//Salt Water Sandals//Skirt: Unknown-was a gift

Wearing Your Popsicle

Today we gave the phrase 'wearing your popsicle' a whole new meaning...Usually with a one and two year old you can bet that when they are done eating their popsicle, they are wearing it, but today we did things a little differently...

Since it's All Things Popsicle Week I thought we'd break out the latest popsicle threads for the littles. Sienna is going through her 'I don't want anything in my hair' phase, but Daniel was a good sport and rocked the popsicle bow tie we made. While browsing through H&M the other day we found an adorable popsicle and ice cream dress! It will be the perfect summer dress to wear to any outing in this Florida heat. 

Stay tuned tomorrow because we have some frozen treats to share as All Things Popsicle Week comes to an end...

Sienna's dress is from H&M and she is wearing Salt Water Sandals in gold.
Daniel's shoes and shorts with suspenders are from H&M and his Gingham button-down is from Gap Kids.

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a long and relaxing holiday weekend! Even though summer technically hasn't started, it sure feels like it's already July around here! It always seems like Memorial Day is the perfect time to kick off summer in this Florida heat. And what better way to cool off than with an ice cold popsicle?
We LOVE popsicles in this house and it seems like lately I have been seeing popsicle swag everywhere. So I thought it would only be fitting to declare this week All Things Popsicle Week! I'll be posting popsicle-themed recipes, diy tutorials, and even popsicle fashion trends. 
Above are some cute popsicle goodies I found already. It seems like Kate Spade is really making their mark lately with these icy pops...Enjoy!

Summer of Rompers

I think it's safe to say Sienna will be spending most of her time this summer in rompers! I love them, she feels like a princess in them...everyone's happy :) Every girl needs a Chambray romper in their wardrobe...This cute little Nautica romper was given to her for Daniel's birthday :) Yes, she got a lot of gifts on top of all his gifts that she considers hers as well.
^^^This Cherokee romper was picked out for Daniel's mustache bash.^^^
Here are a couple of cute ones I've seen in the stores:

And what better to pair all these rompers with than a pair of gold Saltwater Sandals...
We just bought Sienna new ones because she outgrew her first pair! Mommy also has a matching pair in gold :)
Mommy also just added these two rompers to her wardrobe:

Will you be taking part in the romper revolution this summer??

My Fashionable Little Man

My little man was dressed to the nines for his first birthday party! It was a 'Little Man-Mustache Bash' at the park so the bow tie and fedora were a must! I actually just sewed the bow tie right on to the tank since the overprotective mommy in me didn't feel it would be safe to have to have it wrapped around his neck :)

We already had the shoes and while shopping for the tank I came across the MUST-HAVE suspenders with the rolled up shorts. You can bet he will be wearing these puppies all summer long!

I really can't wait to show him these pictures later in life and hear the, "Really mom?" lol

Daniel is wearing head to toe H&M except for the bow tie which I scooped up in the Target Dollar Spot!

Did you have any fun birthday outfits for your little one's special day?

Walk It Out With Tsukihoshi

As most of you may already know, my little baby Daniel is now a walking little man! You know what that means, right?? Well yes, my head will just spin a little more, but it also means we need some new walking shoes!!! I am a firm believer that children should have the proper walking shoes while they are learning how to walk as well as after. There are so many flat-bottom, poorly made shoes that I know would irritate my feet so I have made sure with Sienna and now with Daniel to spend an extra buck on a solid shoe.


Sienna's walking shoes were always Stride Rite brand, but this week I stopped into good 'ol Nordstrom just to take a peek and Daniel walked out with some new kicks...Tsuskihoshis to be exact. Say that three times fast! The saleswoman that was assisting me introduced this shoe to me and she claimed that it was a better shoe than the Stride Rite brand ones. Visually it did look like it gave a lot more support around the ankle which is important when you have a little one who wants to run already! And after seeing Daniel in them for over forty-eight hours I can honestly say I'm in love. I can see a huge difference in his walking, or running should I say, since purchasing them. They do cost a pretty penny (around $56 after tax), but like I said, it's important to have a great shoe in the beginning stages of walking! 

I'm so glad I decided to stop in Nordstom and check out their kids selection. While I was there I spotted these adorable Toms too....


Someone has a birthday coming up next month so we may just be investing in his first pair...

Have you tried Tsukihoshis for any of your littles???

I Mustache You A Question...Will You Be my Valentine?

I love February :) There is so much love to go around this month and I need to get going with my Valentine's Day baking, crafts/valentines, and gift for the hubby and kids! I went ahead and started to browse through some cute outfits for the kiddos so i thought I would create some style boards. There are insane amounts of cute clothes out there for babies and toddlers that it can actually be a little dangerous. The good thing is, most of them can be worn year round whereas with the other holidays the cute outfits expire once the holiday is over...well at least in public :) How cute is this milk mustache shirt above?? It's from a cute shop, birthday couture, on Etsy! I will definitely be ordering something from there soon...
Here are some of the cute finds for baby boys...I am just loving all the mustache/Valentine's combos:
skull shoes // tee //i heart pjs // heart mustache pjs //heart throb tee
And these were some of my favorite pieces for the little girls! Sienna actually has the heart tee from H&M: 
heart jeans // headband // tulle skirt // wristlet // heart tee

Now I need to go dream up my mommy must-haves for Valentine's Day ;)
