Style In The Bump {Pre Birthday Celebration}






This past Sunday was my Birthday! Yay! You'd think I would've made a much bigger fuss out of it but to my astonishment I just wasn't in the mood to go cray cray this year. Just another year, another day, and another reason to count my blessings. I spent the day exactly how I like it; with my boys. First we had brunch at our favorite local spot. Then we went to the park and stood in awe as Aleksandar rode his bike for the first time as if he had been doing it for years. Such a rockstar that kid. We then came home, ordered pizza, and after having a belly full, my boys brought out my favorite ice cream cake and sang "Happy Birthday" to me. Lovely day with my lovely boys...could not have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate my birthday.

A Few Of My Favorite Pins



As of late I've been pinning away all things neon and hot pink. These are just a few of my favorite pins of this week.

1. How amazing is this hot pink nail lacquer against a nude, tangerine, or even a navy hue? A bright pink nail polish is such a great color for summer. Some of my favorites are "Pansy" by Essie, "Pinky" by Pop Beauty, and "That's A Hot Pink" by OPI. Photo Credit Johnny Miller via Hilary Inspired

2. Im always on the hunt for some cool colorful artwork. Love this piece! Image via Papaya Blog

3. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to doors. Yes, I know...It's a little coo coo but I really love how the front entrance of a space can be made into a piece of art. It's so inspiring. This piece by Allison Beuker immediately spoke to me. Image via Society 6

4. Along with a neon nail, Im loving a bright pink lip. I've been mixing a lot of tangerines, corals and pinks this summer. Some of my favorites are this "Hot Pink" matte lip color by NARS, "Pink Petal" by Smashbox, and this amazing deep orange "Lady Danger" by MAC. Image via Shop Hers

Have a safe fun filled weekend my friends!

Style In The Bump {Robert Rodriguez + Chanel}






Surprisingly I've found it a bit easier to style the bump this time around in my summer clothes rather than layered in my winter attire as I did with my first pregnancy. 'Wow just saying that made me feel like such a grown up...second pregnancy?...my Lord'. I love the summer. Its probably my favorite time of the year. And being pregnant with my little one makes this summer all that more special!

A Note To You My Son...



You're becoming a big brother soon. I can not believe how fast this day has come. I can still remember bringing you home from the hospital proudly galavanting my newborn along the concrete streets of New York City. Your dad and I could not stop holding and cuddling you that night. You for sure slept in my arms more than any other place (like the more appropriate places as in the crib or the bassinet) for the first few days of your life. You and I have always had that kind of connection. That mother and son bond that only a well nurtured kinship between a mom and a child could ever know. I've grown to accept that you are a "big boy" and are becoming your own person with likes and dislikes and many many opinions (many of which differ than mine). Best of all Im in love with the fact that you're my buddy, my homie, my boobie-joobie. And yes, I will totally tell your girlfriend one day. She will know of the day you took my hand as we walked along the boardwalk one afternoon and said "mama you're my life", leaving my heart on the wooded plank boardwalk forever. She will know of the time you decided to take off everything but your Pull Ups and play in the sand in the middle of dinner unaware of humored onlookers. She will know of all the times you made things all better just by saying "is so kay (its ok)" and how your favorite thing to do on Saturday mornings is drag your mama to Star Bucks for an apple juice and "choquate (chocolate) cake pop-I will forever cherish our Star Bucks dates...Oh yes, she will know the 3 year old you as much as she does the 18 or even better 25 year old you (hey a mom could dream). I love you not just a "whittle" bit but "a lot" my whittle big boy forever and always.

Ps you're still not fully potty trained but do love putting on your Disney Cars undies.

Pps yes, you're future girlfriend will know of this too ;)


With all my love,


Mom
xoxo

Style In Color {Sea Foam}



I love, love, love this sea foam color. It reminds me of all things peaceful and soothing. Makes me want to go back to Turks & Caicos where the water was literally a crystal clear sea foam hue.

We're Having A Baby!



If you have been following along on Instagram you may have already heard the news. We're having a baby girl due this December! To say we are thrilled over the moon bat crazy geeked about it would be a serious understatement. We can not wait to add another little being to our family and most of all cherish the day Baby A becomes a big brother. He is already so excited and seems to understand a whole lot more than we thought he would. He's dead set on being a good big brother and "reading, feeding, and playing with his baby sister"...and allowing her to "play with HIS toys". Of course, he also points to his own belly and says he has a baby in is belly too. Hahaa...Let's see how this plays out. Overall, we are all really excited to make our little family of 3 a family of 4!




Happy Monday!
