THIRTY | FIFTY-TWO

I was trying clothes on Lia, in an attempt to declutter and prep her school/Fall wardrobe, and in true L fashion, ballet twirling and prancing were a must do in a new top.

PS. Her hair has not been chopped off!

We took L to the zoo on a hot, hot day for one last summer hurrah!

This week we got through a not-so-fun dentist appointment for L. We put together every puzzle we own. Twice. L pretended to be Harry Potter. We hung out at the pool and spent a family day at the beach. This mama got some Rita's. And last weekend was just the best. Hotel stays are worth gold to kids, it seems. So, I say we chalk this one up to a winner despite the dishes and piles of laundry!

Happy Weekending, xo!

The last time I wrote a weekly post was back in April. And to say things have been off-kilter since then is an understatement. Summer hasn't been the amazing few months I imagined it would be. It turns out that having a schedule full of activities (school, ballet, etc.) works better for us than long stretches of empty days. Our town is sweet and simple, but sadly that leaves very little for us to do except find our way into our friend's pool as much as we can.

I'm officially in the second trimester of this pregnancy. I got really sick last week while L was away and it's just starting to clear up now and I can only hope the elusive energy bursts and my appetite make an appearance soon. Otherwise, things are pretty normal here.

And this weekend, we're off for a big hurrah to summer trip. We're taking L to the zoo and staying overnight in a hotel for the pool perks.

Here's to a good weekend!

My girl was away at her grandparents house all week so while I don't have a photo of her, I do have one of this teeny babe.

TWENTY-SEVEN | FIFTY-TWO

We hopped in the car and took a short car ride to meet Grandma over the weekend. This girl is away until Sunday and my mama heart aches for her already. She, however, is quite happy soaking up all the attention at her grandparents house and wants very little to do with phone calls from me.

And then here's random iPhone shots of the rest of our trip. I decided to spend the summer reading Harry Potter, again. Also, I learned my girl is a big fan of dancing at parties now and somehow she looks like she's a fully grown person at restaurants in New York. I just don't get that...
