Serious Sean

 
I had a six month shoot last week with one of my Grow With Me Babes.  Here he is six months ago. Sweet Sean.

 
Here he is now. Six months older.  Best serious face ever. What a little hunk.
 





 
Fun in the park on a gorgeous January afternoon. Happy six months Sean!

Weston's Mustache Party

 
Weston loves mustaches which is why I threw him a mustache birthday party.  It was so fun.  Pinterest inspires me and Hobby Lobby and Etsy help execute my ideas.
 
Weston's birthday is December 26th and we usually celebrate his half birthday. This year we switched it up.  So glad we did.  It felt like a spring birthday party. Gorgeous weather.
 

 
A fun stache I found at Hobby Lobby that I spray painted with chalkboard paint.

 
I blew up a picture of Weston at Staples and we did a pin the Stache on Weston game. Too fun.


My friend who just opened an etsy shop made the adorable mustache banner and mustache garland you see pictured below.  Love it.

 

 
Lainey was excited for the party.



Grab a Stache and join the Bash.




All boys except for Makenna.

 
My friend made the cake and it not only looked amazing it tasted incredible!







 
We did a mustache scavenger hunt down the street at the trail.  The weather was just perfect for it.


Kids loved the cake and lemonade.



Mustache pinata fun.

 
Such a fun five year old birthday party for Weston. He is already asking when his sixth birthday party will be! 

N Family

 
I have been saying it all month but wow this weather in California is amazing!  Feels like spring!  I had a ball photographing this family in the gorgeous late afternoon sun, adventuring in the park.
 
 

Beautiful sisters.
 









 
Celebrating ten years of marriage.


It's a wrap!  Great fun!

Stitch Fix

I found a great little service called Stitch Fix.  Clothes and accessories delivered in the mail. Genius.  I received my fourth shipment today (you receive them monthly)and I decided to blog about it.  Here's how it works.  Go to Stitchfix and fill out your style guide and let them know as much about your style as you can.  You give them your measurements and what you like about your body.  $20 per shipment is what you pay.  Five items are shipped out for you to try on.  You decide what you would like to keep or send back. The $20 goes towards one of the items you would like to keep.  I have kept something each time.  Here is my shipment for this month.
 

It is so fun anticipating what is inside.




 
Fun little style guides come along with the clothes to give you ideas.

 
Love this shirt!! Great fit and the style is fun!


 
The shirt above and below were just Ok. I wasn't wowed by either one.



Super cute scarf but I have a lot of scarves already.

 
The maxi skirt above also came.  I couldn't pull it over my hips which is why there is no picture. Ha! I think it would have been cute on.


After I tried everything on I logged on to Stitchfix and let them know which items I was keeping and which I was returning.  I made sure to let them know the maxi skirt I couldn't fit over my hips. I decided to keep the black shirt which is $58.  My $20 shipment fee goes towards this item.  All items I don't want go in the prepaid postage bag they provided in the shipment.  It must get dropped off at the post office within three days.  My next shipment will come next month. 

I love StitchFix!  I have found a lot of great items over the last four months!  A red dress, my fave pair of black skinny jeans, a great shirt, and a couple of sweaters. 

I highly recommend!  Let me know if you give it a try!
