Helloooooooooooooo FRIDAY! It’s been one heck of a week. On Monday we got the call from daycare informing us that Caroline (and a few others in her class) came down with some sort of stomach bug and needed to be picked up. That night was super rough as our poor baby was up sick several times. The next morning I flew out before sunrise to Chicago (cue the mom guilt) while Matt took care of sick, fussy minis. He is truly super dad. Anyway, after a long three days, I took the last flight out of Chicago last night and arrived home super late. Soooo, you get three things today…
one // We received our Christmas session photos back from our amazing photographer this week and I am so obsessed with this picture of our minis. I have a ton of other amazing images to show you all but this picture was just too perfect to wait to share!
This year I felt so unprepared for our Christmas shoot. I prefer to
stress out for a week or two about outfits, pin poses that I’m hoping
will come together on picture day, etc. However, this year things were
too busy to plan. So the day before our pictures Matt and I literally
ran into baby Gap and pulled two matchy outfits out of the window
display for Thomas and Caroline — a dress for her and a matching plaid
shirt for him. The rest of the outfits were pieced together from things
already in their closets.
two // Oh, and on the way to our shoot we stopped at
Harris Teeter for a bag of mini marshmallows — the perfect, non-messy
bribe/reward for the kiddos throughout the photo session. Highly recommend.
three // Last but definitely not least — a spectacular giveaway!!!! Caroline and Thomas have been rocking their adorable, personalized, matchy-matchy Jennifer Ann leggings a lot recently and I cannot get over the cuteness. We can’t go anywhere without receiving a handful of compliments. And not only are they too stinking cute, but the quality is leaps and bounds better than any of the other leggings in Caroline’s impressive collection.
Anyway, Jennifer Ann has graciously offered to give away a custom pair of leggings to one reader! Enter below using the rafflecopter. The contest will run through Nov. 15 and the winner will be announced back here on Nov. 16. Good luck!
