Nothing can prepare you for parenthood. You can read all the books or websites you want but I am here to tell you, NOTHING and I repeat NOTHING will ever prepare you. I waited a long time before starting a family and here are ten things I wish I would have known before becoming a Mom.
Are you having a great start to the New Year? I’ve been so pre-occupied with Milan’s second birthday party lately that I don’t have too much new stuff to share so here are some recent Mommy and me outfits and an Instagram roundup. Tons of great weekend sales happening right now. Get 50% off wear now warm up styles at Ann Taylor with code: REFRESH (love this and this). Get an extra 70% off select sale styles at Loft – this never happens so take advantage while you can! I love this open hoodie (have in navy and ordered the gray). It’s so nice to throw on for errands, walks or lounging at home. This herringbone infinity scarf is only $10.50! Nordstrom has tons of new markdowns worth checking out – this easy circle cardigan (40% off, have in gray). Click READ MORE to view the full post!
Hope you had an amazing holiday! We had such a wonderful time. Milan was so happy and excited about Christmas. It was a blast watching her open gifts and seeing that innocent sparkle in her eye when she saw Santa come down the stairs. I was expecting her to be a bit wild but she was so behaved and tame. She is so precious. I didn’t get too many photos this year of us but this one was my favorite. On another note, there are so many after Christmas sales going on. Nordstrom is having their half yearly sale. Get up to 50% off until January 2nd. Lot of markdowns worth checking out! Ann Taylor is having a semi-annual sale, get up to 70% off off. I love this waffle stitch cardigan and this shoulder tie sweater (only $16). My green lace top is now an extra 60% off (see on me HERE)! Get 50% off everything at Loft (bought this cascade open cardigan). Click READ MORE for the complete list of sales!
Warning! This post today is very pic heavy! #sorrynotsorry I couldn’t for the life of me whittle down to only 5-7 of my favorites because well…Milan steals my heart and there are no bad photos of her EVER (lol). It’s been awhile since she’s made an appearance on the blog so I thought it was time she say hello again! Click READ MORE to view the full post.
Today I’m getting a little personal and sharing a little bit about how motherhood has changed me. There’s a few facts you may not know about me. I’m the youngest of 7. I know crazy right? Way to go Mom (lol)! We came to America when I was around five years old. We didn’t speak any English and only had the clothes on our backs. My mom sacrificed everything and worked three jobs to support all of us. Although we didn’t have much, I always felt like we had everything. I have three older sisters and feel so blessed to have been raised and surrounded by such strong and independent women.
