Steppin Out Saturday

23 Jul

On Mama>> Tank Top & Shorts-Old Navy  Shoes-Target

On Lila>> Top-thrifted  shorts-Baby Gap

On Saturday Lila and I stepped out in Dandridge. We went to visit my parents.  Around lunchtime Lila, my mom and I went downtown to the farmer’s market to shop the fresh produce. The farmer’s were wheeling and dealing and wanted to trade us all the tomatoes for Lila….but we just couldn’t do it 🙂 They also had pasta, honey, flowers, and free samples of bread. Lila really enjoyed that part and almost had a breakdown when her sample was gone. She loves bread, just like her mama! We had to quickly distract her and move on to the next thing.

After the farmer’s market we walked the streets of Dandridge and my mom was telling me the history of all the buildings and showed me where my grandfather had his clothing store many years ago. I always knew he owned a clothing store but I never knew exactly where it was so it was neat to actually see it. Then we visited a new antique store in town and finally ended the afternoon with lunch in a little wrap shop.

Lila was fading fast so we wanted to get her home for a nap. It is only about 2 minutes from downtown to my parent’s house and in that amount of time she was already nodding off so my mom and I starting singing “Old McDonald” so her two minute car nap didn’t cancel out her real nap. Luckily we made it home in time and she napped well….so did mom:)

Hope you all had an awesome Saturday.

On Mama> Dress: From a cute little boutique on our trip to Ohio a few weeks ago, I meant to look at the label and of course I didn’t ——-I will try and follow-up with that  Earrings: The Limited  Sandals: Old Navy

On Lila> Dress: This little dress was mine when I was a wee little thing. I wish I had gotten a better picture but Lila was having none of it. Sandals: K-Mart  (I love these sandals so much that Lila has now had them in two sizes and I may get a pair for next year, they go with everything!)

We had a busy, fun Saturday! Lila, Josh and I went to our niece’s 10th birthday party and got to hang out with the family all afternoon. It was super hot with temperatures over 1oo but we tried to stay cool with some ice cream and cake! After the birthday party Lila and I headed out to see my best girls, the Jamies! Jamie brought her new little man, Bray, and Lila gave him some sweet lovin.

I was proud of Lila, she was gentle with Bray but still curious. He is such a sweet and handsome little man. I could just sit and cuddle with him all day. We were busy shuffling babies and food and we didn’t get picture of all of us together but at least we got the babies!

By the time dinner was over it was getting pretty late and it was already well past Lila’s bedtime. I decided to pull off at my parent’s house and lay her down. We didn’t really come prepared with any clothes but we made it work. Lila made some interesting outfits out of her G-Mama’s socks and her G-Daddy’s underoos!

Needless to say, it was a good weekend:)

Stepping Out Saturday

16 Apr

Mama> t-shirt: gap / jeans: express / shoes: francesca’s / headband & necklace: had them forever, who knows where they came from?

Lila> dress & sandals: ddk consignment

We had a lovely, relaxing and fun weekend. On Saturday morning Lila and I stepped out to the Dogwood Arts Festival downtown. We strolled around checking out all the cool art, had some ice cream and enjoyed the fabulous weather. Lila was about to pass out on me so we headed back home for her nap time. When she woke up she tried out her new water table. She seemed to really like it. Her favorite activity was to take all the toys out one by one and throw them on the ground while she watched mom and dad retrieve them. I think it will be a really fun way to spend some time outside this summer.

Action shot!

Playing with daddy:)

“The water is cold!”

For dinner, we all went for pizza downtown. Lila wasn’t too excited about the pizza, I think the crust may have been a little tough for her. We figured out she loves ketchup though:)

All in all it was the perfect saturday:)

We had a fantabulous and exhausting weekend! Saturday, Lila and I headed out early to go pick up my half marathon packet and then headed to Dandridge to visit with the G-parents for the day. When we were there two weeks ago, Lila was just getting the hang of holding onto things and walking but on Saturday she took off without any assistance. It is amazing to see the progress she is making in such a short amount of time.

We spent the day hanging out, playing and resting and then headed back to Knoxville to make it an early night.

Mama Style

Top: Kohl’s

Pants: American Eagle (This was my first venture with the color jeans fad that has taken off and I have to say I like them. I may have to get a few more colors.)

Shoes: Off Broadway (I love wedges, they are so comfortable.)

Baby Lila Style

Dress: Gifted from Lila’s 1st Birthday, I think the brand is Cherokee. I love the bright colors.

We had a very productive Saturday!

We got up and hand some play time and then I was able to get my long run in. I am feeling a little bit more confident about the half marathon and thinking it may be a bit more within reach. I’m still not where I would like to be but this was  a better week as far as getting my runs in.

After Lila woke up from her nap we ran a TON of errands to get all the final things for her birthday party coming up on Saturday. She watched as I bought some of her gifts and then I quickly told her she had to forget about them by next weekend. She agreed she wouldn’t rat me out.

Once all our errands were complete we went to meet the G-parents for dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, Altruda’s. When we got home Lila was wiped and passed out before she could even finish her bottle.

We had such a good day together:)
