My family loves all things deer. All the men in my family hunt and we always had deer heads hanging on our walls, growing up. I realize this may be controversial or foreign to some of you, but in Alabama, it is extremely common. My mom always had lots of deer mixed in our decor – especially at Christmastime! I love continuing the tradition in our home! While Ryan does not hunt and we do not have deer heads on our walls, I do love adding deer decor where I can. When I saw these deer sweaters, I had to have them for Sophie and me! They are two of my favorite colors and both have the sweetest deer on them!
Happy Monday, friends! Did you see my mommy and me fashion post last night on IG? Lately, I’ve had a thing for matching Sophie. It started one day when I realized we were wearing a similar outfit and got so many compliments on our “matching” clothes. I thought it was so funny because it was a complete accident. I saw how excited and special it made Sophie feel, so since then, I have enjoyed trying to find clothes that are similar so that we can match and take “pit-ures.” Sophie girl loves to take photos with me, now! It used to be a struggle, but now she cries if I am taking them of anything else without her. haha Ohhh the joys of being a mom blogger. I snagged this adorable skirt about a month ago when it was on super sale (I think it is still on sale)! I bought it for under $30! I also got this top on sale a while back, too! My MIL bought Sophie this adorable little skort from Khols that actually has another matching top, but we paired it with a white tank to match mine for church on Sunday. I loved it. Let’s just say we were feeling a little ruffly.
We leave on our spring break trip in less than a week and we are excited to get away for a few days! I am so looking forward to that Florida sunshine and warm weather! It is going to be cold here again this week, so I am praying we don’t get sick again after having a really warm week last week. Love this Alabama weather, let me tell you! The beach is calling my name!
So, I have had a little fun picking out these adorable spring break essentials for mama and her mini! One thing I love about having a little girl is dressing her and even matching her sometimes when the mood strikes! It’s so fun! I have more fun shopping for her tan I do for myself and I have been obsessing over all the toddler things they make to match mommy now! Here are a few of my favorites:
Happy Wednesday! Is this week going by super fast for anyone else or is it just me? I feel like it should still be Monday. But, that’s life as a mom, right? You blink and it’s been three years. It has been raining here the last couple of days and we are definitely looking forward to some sunshine this weekend (I hope!). Until then, I wanted to share these three truths with you…
We have finally experienced our first winter weather of the season this week and it has been so nice. While Fall is still my favorite season, I do like it when the colder weather arrives. It is a huge relief to us southern folks down here. I like that it finally felt like winter for the first time. I was able to break out my sweaters and jackets and I have really enjoyed it. Earlier in the week, it was still pretty warm and I was able to get out in our common green space area with the kiddos after a few days of rain. If you have a toddler, you know that after a few days of rainy weather, they go nuts. They were so ready to get out of the house and just run – which is exactly what we did.

…It’s true. Even though Hampton is almost 3 now, our little nickname for our first two kids when they are acting like crazy people is “two under two.” The last few days, we have been going non-stop. I have officially hit “I’m about to have a baby and haven’t done anything to prepare” mode, and it happened to hit me about the same time that my kids outgrew all of their shoes, planning for Hampton’s birthday and a million other little things we have going on this week. Adding to our crazy, I have been due for an iPhone upgrade for 2 months now, but because our nearest Apple store keeps running out of phones, it took me until yesterday to actually get mine. We have been checking in every day to see if they had the gold iPhone, and they finally got it in the store, which meant a very last minute trip to Birmingham.
I am so excited to do my first mommy and me styled post in a new series I’ll be doing over the next few weeks. I love to match SR in subtle ways. Don’t get me wrong, I do not like to dress like a baby, but I love finding little details that tie in our outfits.
I’ve always enjoyed color coordinating with Hampton, but I can take it a step further now that I have a little girl.
I am a huge fan of leopard print. I have been for many many years. I absolutely love it and it never goes out of style! I loved these adorable headbands that I found on Etsy at Urban Style Kids. I could’t help but snatch them up! USK has the cutest headbands and they are so comfortable.
I am also still loving the Chambray look that was really popular last year. I am so glad it is still in! I bought both of our chambray rompers at Old Navy and I am a huge fan of both of them! They are easy and you can style them so many ways. The possibilities are endless!
Confession: These pictures were taken 3 weeks ago and I’m just now posting this. Whoops. I am a little behind. 😉
