Two. Two years old. Where has the time gone? It feels like I was just writing about her first birthday smash cake party. A little human who walks, talks and has the biggest personality. Click READ MORE to view more photos from her bunny themed birthday party.
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.
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!
I would prefer a bag of salty potato chips over cookies any day of the week however I’m officially addicted to banana oatmeal raisin cookies! Easy to make, takes little to no effort, only TWO natural ingredients and no processed sugar. I made them a few weeks ago and have been eating them non-stop. I’m already on my fourth batch…not sure if this is a good thing (lol)? Yes they are THAT delicious. It’s like banana bread and oatmeal raisin cookies all in one. Yummy!

I go back home to the Midwest to visit my family every Summer. Since we all hang out nearly around the clock, I usually just stay with my parents, but this year I had the privilege of staying at Hotel Landing in downtown Wayzata, Minnesota. This is the first and only upscale hotel in the area. It’s been fifty years since a hotel has opened around the shores of Lake Minnetonka so needless to say I was pretty excited to be one of the first to experience it!
