. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Lately . . . .

January 16, 2014

Lately . . . .


Wearing:  a $15 dress I found at Ross and enjoying the chance to dress up.  

Thankful for: a good friend's wedding last weekend and a chance to see my best friends from childhood. My blurry pictures included. 


Enduring: a little sleep training for Addilyn and feeling a little anxious about it. 

Reading: a few new blogs, like The Ausam Life..

Watching: the Bachelor.  It's embarrassing how excited I am that it's back on.  However I am so far unimpressed with it.  Which by no means equates with me no longer watching it.  


Excited to: put up my few Valentine's Day decorations.  After the depression of taking down all Christmas decorations, it's nice to have something to replace them with. 

Surprised that: my baby girl turned six months old this week.  I can't believe Addilyn has been in our life for half of a year.  

Dreading her: six month shots on Monday. 


Slightly disappointed: that this was the best picture I could get on her six month birthday.  Hello little drama queen? We will have to try again. 

Happy weekend friends!

You have so many good things going on, girl! I'm loving that dress. Also, I can't get enough of The Bachelor either, even though this season isn't the best ever. I just can't help but love it.

I'm excited to decorate for Valentine's day, too! Hooray for hearts and glitter and love notes. :)

It is always fun to dress up and you can't beat 15 bucks!

Juan Pablo isn't my favorite Bachelor but hopefully things get juicy as the season goes on.
