Rompin’ Around {in Rose & Wesley}

So you may be wondering why I am writing and sharing a red, white & blue themed post and outfit for Calvin approximately 3 weeks after the 4th of July …. well this Mommy is just a littttle behind on blogging but we’re going with it. Does anyone else feel like life is running them over? JK, that’s an exaggeration. Kinda. Calvin sure looks like he is ALWAYS proud to be an American anyways:)
I had the pleasure of working with Mandi from Rose & Wesley – the cutest online boutique where  all of the items are handmade and the tagline is “Making Playtime Beautiful.” She was so sweet and sent me this hand sewn romper for Calvin. So. cute.
Cal is wear the LIAM romper which is so so soft and comfy for an active little boy. The romper is stretchy so it slips right on from the bottom up.  I can’t wait to get more for him – just like I love a good “momper”, they also work for the babes.

Family Field Trip! {@ Krohn Conservatory}

Lately life seems as if it has been on complete OVERDRIVE! I never wanted to be one of those bloggers that was apologizing for not writing in such a long time, but here I am! lol…with work, growing my business, planning a wedding, chasing a 17 month old, and still trying to be a good fiance – it has literally been insane, and I don’t see any sign of it stopping any time soon!!!
Today we took the time as a family to go on a little field trip to the Krohn Conservatory, which is basically a showcase of plant species from all over the world located right in our neighborhood of Eden Park in Cincinnati! They usually have a butterfly exhibit, but we didn’t research beforehand and they are not back until August. SO we will be going back soon.
It actually sounds boring to walk around looking at plants but between the plants, flowers, sculptures, waterfall, coloring room, and fish in the ponds, Calvin was honestly AMAZED! Here are some of our snapshots from the day. I got a new lens for my Canon and I think my Dad would have been impressed at the photos I got of the flowers 🙂

^what face does a fishy make?

What are some other fun family field trips you like to take? Where else can we take this crazy little man for a reasonable price!?

Our {Mommy & Me} Fall Fashion Favorites + a GAP discount code

Hi all, how are we? I’m back, back again – I have to write about the sweetest thing that has started happening with Calvin lately. I wrote about this on a previous instagram post, but he has definitely started WANTING me and showing preference to who holds him, and when. This is new in the last few weeks. When I get home from work he is basically reaching and lunging for me to hold him and just pick him up and squeeze him. If I go in the other room, he now notices, and if I put him down before he wants me to, he’ll grip onto me harder. If we’re sitting on the floor he tries to crawl up my legs. I know that this will probably get old but for now I am just enjoying him wanting to spend time with and love his mom! He shows he needs me and I know I need him, too.

Anyways…it’s a new season, a new month, and guess what? I’m still obsessed with neutrals. I’ve enlisted the help of a particularly cute baby model to help me with this post 🙂 I’m thinking I will do a ‘Mommy & Me’ type fashion post every so often going forward.
Last fall I was preggo and wearing pretty much all maternity clothes, this fall, I get to match with my little dude – so fun!
So because of this year’s change in size, I was feeling like I needed some new things… and I found myself going for all of the brown, tan, cream basics per usual. Am I boring? I’m such a brown, goldeny wearing girl. I love wearing these type of shades, and this always translates into my make-up and accessories as well. I talked in my everyday makeup routine about this and I will be showing you all my newest neutral favorite fall/winter accessory from JORD watches next week!

My fall necessities as always are sweaters, jeans and boots. #basic huh?  I love me a good pair of brown boots, a soft comfy sweater and perfect fit pair of jeans. Obviously I had to get Calvin the same items – brown baby booties, a comfy knit henley onesie and the cutest little baby jeans.
