You can tell it’s cooling off because we’re actually able to go outside. Last weekend, we found ourselves at the Zoo. Kelsey loved the giraffe (“long neck” – she would say) and the elephant. The cows were “okay”. The turtles were “slow”, but the monkeys – those excited her. There were pumpkins inside the exhibits for the “boo at the […]
Those legs! Those tights! I could eat her up.
Smile! Or, don’t.
Holding her friend, Avery’s hand.
I took the morning off work to visit Kelsey’s school for the Halloween Festival. If you haven’t seen toddlers parading around school in costumes then you have been missing out! It was a riot. Probably one of the best days I’ve had in a long time.
I arrived around 9:30am and put Kelsey into her “Blossom Fairy” costume. We went from classroom to classroom showing off the kids. She loved it! Every moment of it. From holding Avery’s hand to having mommy right by her side. I just love seeing the holiday’s through a child’s eyes.
PS – She is almost 2 years old. I can’t believe it.
Here’s a fun video for the weekend: 25 ways to wear a scarf. I loved watching it and learned a couple new tricks. Look out for them this winter! Have a wonderful weekend full of pumpkin carving, Halloween parties and lots of calorie-free chocolate candies.
Yesterday, during my lunch hour, I went where any girl would go: the mall. While at Z Gallerie, I found these darling spider rings. I thought to myself, “Kelsey would love these.” And then I thought, “Wait a minute. I love these!” So, I bought two! Two blinged out, creepy, crawly spider rings. For Halloween, of course.
Although they would make a cool desk ornament …
Kelsey loves Tuesdays because Grandma “G-ma” and Papa pick her up early from school. They go back to their house and play, play, play. They bring Kelsey back to us bathed, fed and happy. My kind of day! Today, Papa sent us a photo album of our little bug. Out of all the precious photos he […]
I manage online marketing initiatives for six W Hotels across the West - from W Hollywood to W Austin. I’m amazed everyday at the innovation that pours from this brand. Just recently, W Hotels launched Fashion Next – a showcase dedicated to supporting emerging fashion designers. Our newly appointed W Hotels Global Fashion Director, Jenne Lombardo, selects talented designers that have […]
It may not feel like fall (still 97 degrees) but it’s sure gonna smell like it! I have my pumpkin candles, all of my decorations up and I just made pumpkin muffins from a Trader Joe’s box. It’s beginning to smell like the holidays …
Last year, we ended our pumpkin patch venture with the flu. Not this time! We visited a local farm (darling, little farm) where Kelsey rode a train, pet a donkey, chased a goose and hung out with her cousins. We had a ball. The best part? Spending moments like this with a little girl who reminds me what life is all about … every day.
I think the donkey was showing off at this point. He kept sticking his face through the fence. Kelsey loved this guy. She rubbed her chest (sign language) and said, “happy” when he was around.
Yep. I squeezed into this little car. Kelsey jumped on my lap and “drove” me around the entire park. Such a fun day, thanks mom and grandma for going with us. I have hay in my jeans, dust in my eyes and tons of new memories.
