Anniversary + Weekend Pics

Jun 20, 2011

Today marks my one year blogging anniversary! Hard to believe I started this little blog a year ago hoping that just my friends and family would read it and now I have over 300 followers. I am so flattered that you all care to read what I write! Blogging has been such a wonderful experience for me. All you fellow bloggers are constantly inspiring me and I learn so much from each and every one of you! This has been such a great creative outlet for me now that I am a stay at home mom. I truly value all our “friendships” and your comments always make my day! So thanks for reading, inspiring me and motivating me! I am thankful to be a part of this crazy blogging world and have you girls in my life. I love you gals!

Now on to our weekend! We had a fabulous weekend filled with two playdates, a cook out at a friend’s house and a fathers day lunch at our house! So much for a low key weekend, right?

This is my new favorite outfit. I seriously wear it once a week. I wore it to our Father’s Day lunch yesterday and maybe Monday too (don’t judge). Tibi Blouse, JBrand Rolled Cuff Jean Shorts, Tory Burch Flats.
Sterling giving Matt some fatherly love on Father’s Day

I did manage to get a little love on Father’s Day too!
My two favorite men

Sterling rocking his Tom Brady hair do as we like to call it.

Not quite sure about this whole sharing thing.
We are trying to teach Sterling the importance of not drinking and driving but I don’t think he gets it. This party animal would not set Mommy’s wine glass down!

My little man was completely exhausted from all his playdates and busy weekend! Yes, I am totally that crazy mom that still takes pictures of her child sleeping at night! I can’t help it he is so darn sweet when he is sleeping!

I hope you all had a great weekend and special fathers day too!
