Short but sweet

Whew, what a busy weekend!  It was good, but way too short.  Not to mention, we're still recovering from the crazy snowstorm.  The main issue now is it's super crazy cold again, so all the roads have turned to sheer ice.  It's fabulous.

Even as busy as things were it was a good weekend though.  Friday was a bit of a trying day because of the storm and also Oliver was in a bit of a growth spurt and super cranky and refusing the bottle at my parents house, so I received a couple of frantic calls from my mom.  But then the rest of the weekend got better. Saturday we went out for breakfast.  After that I got a few things done at home and then after Ollie went down for a nap I ran and got a haircut finally!  Feels SO much better having it short and spiky again!  I went to do a mass with our church group while Mr. Monkey took the baby to his parents house, then we had dinner with them and they watched him while we had a birthday drink with a good friend.

Blazer - two birds vintage via b. (a resale shop)

Shoes - Mossimo, Target

Yesterday was then a pretty big day - it was Oliver's baptism.  I'll have pictures to share in another post, but it went pretty well overall!  I was pretty proud of my little guy!  As great as it was, it did lead to the weekend being a bit too short feeling though!  Next weekend we have absolutely nothing lined up at all and we're really excited about it.  Quality family time here we come!


  1. <3 Very cute outfit today! And thank you so much for coming out for a drink with us this weekend!

  3. Beth! I swear you are the best baby machine. You hardly gained any weight and you look as tho you have never ever had a kid. That is something you can pat yourself on the back about because me and my dd's are so bad at getting HUGE during pregnancy. It is so true. I hope my granddaughters don't take up that same possible gene trait. dang. I have missed several of your posts, sorry 'bout that! But my take on the past few I just viewed was how great you look now. Your weekend was eventful but yes, probably too short. Congratulations on the Baptism and for the greatness of it all. Share pics soon, k? k. ♥ {ps. thanks for the compliments, too}

  4. those weekends filled with fun always seem too short. i hope this week is better for you!

  5. Glad the weekend and baptism went well for you:) Have a great week!

  6. Congrats in the baptism! I know what you mean about busy weekends! What a can outfit and your hair looks so nice! X

  7. Congratulations, I hope your relaxing weekend comes soon!

    I really like that blazer on you. The length is just perfect and it's a great complement to your figure.

  8. Needing a weekend from your weekend? I"m anticipating that feeling after this upcoming weekend... But busy for all the right reasons -- family family (and some much needed you time! There is nothing more therapeutic than a haircut for short haired girls, eh?)

  9. A fresh haircut is one of the best feelings! I'm glad the baptism went well and can't wait to see the pictures. Yay for no plans this weekend! Those honestly are the best kind, where you can just hang out and do whatever you want. :)


  10. Congrats on the haircut! I finally caved and got one myself too. It had just been too long. Nothing like a trim to make you feel a little lighter.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
