Memorial Day Weekend & Fourth Fashions

Hope you all had the most wonderful long weekend with your loved ones!  It's crazy to think that at this time last year, we were one day away from our due date & anxiously (not patiently) waiting on our second baby girl and now, we are celebrating with our sweet little set of sissies.  What a year it has been!!

My brother came home from Colorado this weekend, which we were all really looking forward to.  I know there are tons of families that live all over the country and that people deal with this sort of thing all the time, but damn, it's hard.  We miss him like crazy & I especially hate that he's not here every single day to see all the girls milestones and new things they have going on.  Yet we make it work and it's that much more special when he's here, so we choose to look at the positive AND to look forward to a trip out there soon (West Coast ladies - I'm coming for ya!). 

We had so much fun spending time with family & friends and getting to enjoy an extra day with daddy home, which always makes the biggest difference.  The girls even survived a few nights out way past their bedtimes (something we don't do often, anyone else's kids turn into crazies after 6:30?). I'm sure we will be paying for it all week long but - it was worth it!  And we are officially more ready than ever for summer.

Girls Suits
And now for some fun stuff!!  All the red, white & blue has me all kinds of inspired to get us girls some extra fun stuff for the fourth.  I've rounded up some favorites, for little ones & mamas, too!

Red Dress - Chambray Top - Wedges - Blue Romper - Denim Top - Striped One-Piece - Gingham Romper - Denim Shorts 
That off-the-shoulder red dress can't get in my cart fast enough. :)

Wishing you all a very happy (short!) week ahead! XO

  6. Spending time with family is the best. While we live close to the greandparents my brothers both live far away, so I can totally relate! I love the girls in their red white and blue and Waverly's hair is amazing!!!
