Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!

Did everyone "fall back" yesterday?? For as long as I can remember, I have NEVER taken advantage of that extra hour. I am just not a good sleeper-inner (not a word). But we successfully transitioned Emerson to the time change, so I consider that a win.

This weekend was lovely. To summarize its greatness, you need to know 3 things:

1) I finally got the "mom" cut. 

Yep, I chopped off all my hair. Not because Emerson tugs at it, but just because I was feeling brave, and all of a sudden shoulder-length hair felt stifling. I love it. Jon says I look modern and sassy. I just love that I only have to use half the shampoo I normally do.

2) I got the deal of the century.

For weeks now, I have been lusting after my friend Karleigh's Michael Kors watch. It's a rosegold watch, and while I don't love gold, rose gold just spoke to me. I had to have it. And then I looked it up online, and it was $275. Hmmm. No dice.

So you can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this gorgeous little knockoff at the best store on the planet, and hooray! $15 and I am almost as cool as Karleigh. Almost.

3) I have physical proof that my daughter is the greatest gift of all time.

For her Christmas gift, Grandma got Emerson a photo shoot with a photographer she loves, so that we could have Christmas pictures of her this year to send out. It was such a sweet gesture, and I am SO SO SO SO happy that we did it. Emerson was the perfect angel during the shoot, and Jenn our photographer was a pro and so gifted at working with babies. Here is a sneak peek from yesterday's proof. I feel like I need to call Pottery Barn Kids and tell them I've found their next star. I dare you to disagree.

Can't. Handle. The. Cuteness.
I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!!

Have a great day everybody!
