Life Lately + Nordstrom Giveaway Reminder

Monday, February 13, 2017

The last few weeks have been a sweet blur of time with family and friends. It's so crazy to me how January felt so slow and how February is already half over. For us, this means getting a new niece or nephew in just a few weeks. We're getting so excited! :) Last weekend we had a baby shower in celebration of this sweet baby! 

These guys escaped to Ben's parents house and this selfie might be my favorite thing that's ever happened.  Please note that I clearly did not dress Beau, haha! :) 

Beau hadn't had a sink bath in our new house until last week after his at home haircut. It is crazy how small he was when we used to do sink baths and now he was like sitting up in the sink. It was really slippery so it made us nervous! Haha! 

Beau's currently starting to try and eat his pouches on his own.. if we can get this figured out my whole life will be completely changed, haha! 

Thursday was my birthday and we had a really sweet day of being together! Ben and I ended the day with a date night while Beau stayed with his Uncle Zac. I feel like this should be opposite but the longer we are parents the weirder it feels to go places without Beau!

On Friday night we got to be a part of the sweetest surprise! My friend Tiffany's daughter Alexa is OBSESSED with everything related to Paris. She's wanted a french bulldog forever and is always drawing pictures of "her bulldog" etc etc.. Well long story short a very generous breeder decided to GIFT THEM a french bulldog. If you know anything about this dog breed you know they're pretty expensive so this was CRAZY and amazing!! Friday night was the presentation for Alexa's 8th birthday! 

She was SO surprised and named the bulldog Hope. It was so amazing to see her sweet little dreams come true. We were so excited to be a part of the presentation under the pretense of getting some extra photos of the reveal! 

We're getting SO excited for our trip to Disney World in April. We tried Beau's mickey ears hat on him on Saturday and he clearly shares our feelings. Just a forewarning because I know I'll be posting 85 photos a day on Instagram. Eek! 

We are savoring the days where our little boy naps in our arms. We are inching closer and closer to the one year mark and it gives me all the feels!

After family breakfast, my two besties planned a full day of birthday fun! 

We ate lunch at Shake Shack in Dallas.. yum! And then went to Highland Park Village for some shopping. I hadn't been to the Dallas Draper James location and was obsessed! I like Nashville better but this store is just so stinking well branded. I LOVE it!! 

I tried on a few things and ultimately ended up purchasing this top. I'm kind of obsessed with it. I also tried on this.. which I liked but ultimately decided needed to be on sale for it to get a second look!

We popped into Royal Blue Grocery and I got some inspiration for Beau's First Birthday party.. can you guess the theme? :) 

One of our next stops was Bird Bakery for a drink and a treat. A menu like this could almost make me consider liking coffee ;) 

We then went back to Kayla's house and got ready for our dinner reservation in Fort Worth. Where we were going was a surprise to me.. and when we walked into Taverna two more of my good friends were there, a huge surprise! It was such a fun and sweet night with my close friends. I was so spoiled with a few wonderful days of birthday celebration!!

  1. The selfie of Ben and Beau is my absolute favorite! So precious! I'm glad you got that top--looks great on you and I can't wait to see you style it for warmer weather! And my in-laws just talked to us about a big family Disney trip so we're planning to go summer 2018 with everyone. How exciting!

  2. I think it is so funny how we always know when the daddies dress the babies ;-) I usually get pictures of a ninja turtle t shirt under overalls with snow boots haha! What a fun birthday weekend, I love how much you got to do! And beau is so precious eating his little pouch-they are growing way too fast!

  3. Your boys are so cute! And so glad you had a great birthday, sounds like such a fun time! :)

  4. What a wonderful birthday weekend!! That Draper James shop looks adorable, and all of that food (especially the cupcake) is making me so hungry :)
