2 Year Photos


We recently had pictures of Turner taken for his upcoming 2nd birthday.  It's hard to wrangle him for photos by myself, and I knew I wanted high quality photos taken. Thanks to Kim of Kim Neuman Photography we have some amazing photos to remember this time in his life! Kim was so sweet and very patient, which comes in great when you have a toddler running around.  I highly recommend her for your kiddos and family. She's booking fall mini sessions right's a good idea to start thinking about holiday cards, plus family pictures are great gifts for grandparents : ) !

For the shoot, I brought a bag full of items to catch Turner's attention (football, books, his favorite stuffed animal, balloon, and some chairs for him to sit on). He really wanted nothing to do with anything except his football (that is until Alex accidentally smacked him in the face with it...see the last photo).

California Casual


Alex and I are back from our California trip, and are so happy to back with Turner! A few months prior to the trip Alex said we should only take carry-ons.  My initial reaction was "Are you crazy!?" 6 days with unfamiliar weather and only a carry-on?  Thankfully, he convinced me and it was definitely the right choice.  I packed the following; 

- 6 shirts
- 2 casual dresses
- 2 scarves
- 2 jackets
- 3 pairs of jeans
- 1 small purse
- 3 pairs of shoes

It was a bit tough packing because I wasn't sure of the weather, and I didn't know how dressy or casual we would be at night.  Most days I wore jeans and sneakers since we walked almost all day, and my scarves saved my life (the wind was frigid).  Here's my outfit I wore on the plane and the first day in the city.

Jacket/Jeans: Gap
Tee: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Birkenstock
Purse: Vintage Dooney & Bourke

Night Out with Design Lab


I was invited by my friend Rebecca to attend the grand opening Austin's newest designer boutique, Design Lab. The boutique features a variety of items from jewelry and kids clothing to menswear and women's apparel all created by Texas based designers. I was able to meet the designers of each collection, and fell in love with Daniel Esquivel's collection (Project Runway Season 11 contestant). Design Lab is located near Austin's scenic restaurant, the Oasis on Lake Travis. 

It felt really great to get dressed up, and actually put on a dress. This dress had been sitting in my closet since last years TX Blogger Conference. I snagged it for free at the swap, and haven't had the chance to wear it.

Dress: Lulu's
Shoes: DV via Nordstrom
Purse: Lulu's (also from the swap..whoo hoo for free stuff!)
