February Update!

By on February 28, 2012

Since I have been a total blog slacker I went ahead and downloaded the Blogger app for my phone. I still am without a lap top so hopefully this will motivate me to post more.
We have been very busy this past month and I have a feeling March is going to be just as crazy.
First we had Valentine’s Day, which was nice. We went to dinner at this place called Azteca and Ace was dancing in his highchair to the men playing music around the restaurant.
Adonis also had his first swimming experience. It went really well. We spent the day at my parents and he was loving it.
This past weekend we went to Daytona so Branden could go to the Daytona 500 with one of our friends and I stayed back with his wife who is one of my best friends and their two daughters. It was great spending the weekend with them. I wish we lived closer.
I still need to do Ace’s 7 month post. I am slacking! He is doing so much so I need to get on it.
I am adding pictures but now sure how they will turn out so hopefully they post! I downloaed photo grid so I could put a bunch of photos from this month in one.

RIP MACBOOK!

By on February 19, 2012

It has been a ghost town around here and I swear I have a good excuse. My lap top of 5 years has died. I can not tell you what a bummer this is. It just stopped working and I am now heartbroken because I have so many pictures on that computer. I am going to have to back it up somehow. I am hoping Monday I will have time to post about Ace turning 7 months, Valentine’s Day, Ace’s cute new things he is doing and our weekend. I will have pictures also! Stay tuned.

Look for Less Update

By on February 5, 2012

Last night my sister, mom and I went to Target because it was the only place open and we were bored. They decided to help me scope out some items for my Look for Less challenge. I was surprised I found everything I was looking for there. I had planned to look for the shirt at Forever21 or Charlotte Russe because they usually have t-shirts like the one in the picture but found a cute tee at Target. It is gray with letters, so not the same but still cute. I also found a couple cardigans, nothing with sparkles or anything on them so I went for a plain black one that was 3/4 sleeves. I also found some silver bangles and a white watch. I had the cut off shorts, black purse and a pair of black wedges I wanted to use to complete the look at home. It really helped keep the price down. My total at Target was less then $50 plus my Mom bought the cardigan since she wanted to get my sister and me each something. My sister and Mom suggested having a $75 budget so I stayed under that. I believe I was just under $65 with tax if I had bought the cardigan.

Didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it too lol

Watch: $12.99
Bangles: $4.99
Cardigan: $19.99
T-shirt: $12.99
Shorts: From my closet
Wedges: From my closet
Purse: From my closet

So after putting the outfit together I realized it wasn’t very baby friendly. I then decided that instead of just trying to do a look for less, I would then revamp it to make it more practical for everyday Mommy wear. I decided that the cut off shorts and wedges were a bit too much for me with the baby so I switched those out for some distressed jeans I had from American Eagle and sandles I got from Old Navy forever ago. I switched out the purse for my diaper bag and removed the bangles since they would rubbed against Ace’s back when I held him. I think the mommy look is definitely more me. So here is my look for less mommy make over.

Much better! 

Mommy Make-Over
Jeans: From my closet
Diaper Bag: Baby Shower gift
Sandles: From closet

February Photo Challenge!

By on February 4, 2012

I am officially obsessed with Pinterest. I wish it was around when I was planning my wedding and Ace’s nursery. I was searching around and found different photo check lists and there just so happened to be a February one! I am going to really try to stick to it and do a photo a day. I am obviously behind since it is already the 3rd almost the 4th of the month. I will try to do them in order but may do some out of order. Here is the list!

Look for Less

By on February 3, 2012

I used to love the show “The Look for Less”. My friend Kat and I used to sit around and watch it everyday when she was pregnant with her first daughter. It was our favorite show. Now that there is pinterest I see all these cute outfits and some are super expensive so I decided to do a look for less on one. I am going to post the picture today. Give myself a budget and try to get the outfit this weekend. I need to figure out what the budget should be though. Also if you have any ideas on where I can get items that are similar please feel free to let me know. You can email me at brenna.boyd.kania@gmail.com or post a comment. This should be fun!
