Currently I am “hunkered down” in my house in Houston as hurricane Harvey makes his way though the Gulf Coast. All is well and I am even afforded some time to get blogging done (thank God for electricity!) I have been wanting to make my two year old daughter Camilla more a part of the preparations for her baby brother’s arrival in 5 weeks. I thought it would be a great idea for her to make some artwork for his room.
It was important to Cameron and I to do something fun with Cami this summer because it was going to be our last real opportunity for it to be our little family of three. This weekend and throughout the 4th of July week we are headed to South Padre Island and I am thrilled to be spending time with the family on the beach. I am preparing for our 6 hour drive with these 7 super easy toddler-friendly DIY road trip activities to keep Cami’s hands and mind busy.
This year was Cameron’s big 3-0 and I surprised him with a trip to Italy. Most birthday surprises are meant to be awesome, like a vacay to Italy…One surprise that was not awesome for him was what seemed like the morning he turned 30, his back started hurting. With old man river tossing and turning on my left, and my growing baby causing me some serious lower back discomfort, we knew it was time to look for a new mattress.
This past weekend my daughter Camilla celebrated her 2nd birthday and it was all I could do to keep it together at the thought of my baby growing one year closer to leaving me one day for some boy. To know Cami is to know that she LOVES all things Minnie Mouse, so a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party was a no-brainer.
About 3 weeks ago, I got my energy back ya’ll! I thought I would never see the day when I didn’t feel like my tiny yet growing baby wasn’t sucking the life out of me, but in the words of Drake “started from the bottom now I’m here”! In honor of my newly found energy I thought it was appropriate to share the sunniest, brightest look and kick off my summer style wardrobe.
