Stitch Fix Numero Uno!

Today was an all around great day and the icing on the cake was my first Stitch Fix shipment arrived! I know I am behind the times to just begin getting this amazing little surprise in the mail BUT it was worth the wait! I mean, how cool is it to have someone else pick out your clothes and quite possibly nail it the first time!

My stylist is Heather and I want to give her a big hug! WHY? She literally made my day and I feel like she really knows me! Heather, do you read my blog?

I opened the box and saw BLUE! If I had a signature color it would be pink, black, or vibrant blue! All 5 of my pieces were some shade of blue! I also received a card that showed me how to style each piece and dress it up or make it casual!

So, while I am not keeping every piece {even though I'd get an awesome discount} I did take a picture of each of them and tried them on twice. I feel like taking the photos really helped make it clear which one I was keeping. Keep in mind this was right after working out and a hot shower, so the hair is a bit wild and big!

41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top
While I LOVE this turquoise color I'm not a huge fan of these shirts and the fitted waist but loose elsewhere. BUT they say try on everything in the box and you may surprise yourself! I certainly did and this shirt felt comfortable and definitely made me think about keeping it, but I live in GA and it was 94* today at noon...I can't buy things with 3/4 length sleeves right now!
Verdict: RETURN

Mavi Angie Skinny Jean
There is so much to love about these jeans: soft, distressed, and fit like a glove! I really do love them, but I would NEVER wear them or buy jeans in the summer...again it's TOO hot! I am hoping for another pair as the weather cools off around Fall!
Verdict: RETURN

Market & Spruce Nolen Printed Detail Henley Tank
My first thought was LOVE and then I put it on. Here's a transparent moment: Having a baby for me meant wearing maternity clothes. Yes, my son is 22 months old and my mind STILL feels weird about wearing shirts that are not longer. Is that crazy? So, when I saw the shirt was "shorter" than what I typically wear I got nervous. Here's where my awesome husband comes in: IT'S HIS FAVORITE! I wanted to keep it so bad, so I hung it up and planned to wear it on Saturday. I tried it on with 3 different pair of pants and just didn't LOVE it! I do like Stitch Fix for this reason, I would never have the opportunity to try on the same shirt so many times and easily send it back after a few days the way Stitch Fix makes it soooo convenient! If only this shirt didn't go up so high on the sides it would be in my closet!
Verdict: RETURN

 Loveappella Carlita Multi Chevron Print Maxi Dress
I pulled this dress out and thought "yeah right, this 5' 2.5" girl is not going to be able to pull off a maxi dress", but the length was literally perfect, the fit was spot on, and it would be hanging in my closet IF the pattern was lined up. I was going to keep it and then I snapped the NO! Can anyone else see the optical illusion and what about the back?!? I never would have picked up this style of dress, but now I will! It was beyond comfortable, great coverage, and really was flattering...but the pattern of the material threw it all off. DARN!
Verdict: RETURN

Papermoon Alexus Dress
This is MY dress! It was made for me! The subtle detail of the material, the cool zipper on the back, the way it goes with my Noonday necklace, and the cut of the dress...PERFECTION! The color is a bit more bold, but the tan color on the wall washes everything out a tad.
Verdict: KEEP

What do you think? Do you love the picks, hate them, or want them in your next fix! Try it out and let me know! Now, I am off to schedule my next one!

21 Months

Sweet little boy,

You are growing up! You are talking up a storm ~ READ: You are repeating everything we say!

Yard tools are your favorite and you get that honest. Anytime Daddy is outside cutting the grass, edging the yard, and watering the plants you want to be right there! One day this month we caught you acting like things were leaf blowers. You used a paper towel roll, toys, and even a sprinkler. We even ended up buying one your size!

Back in February you started asking to go peepee in the potty and I was not sure if I was ready for that. You would go when you wanted to, but you weren't 100% all in with the training aspect. I will say that you are very routine about using the potty before your bath time. You are so smart!

The library is one of your favorite places. You love going to see Amy and Laura and seeing all of the books. You've met some friends, but you're still not ready to sit down and play with them. You definitely do your own thing and stay busy!

Marshall and Angelina got married this month and you attended your first wedding! During the ceremony you sat on Uncle Jack's scooter aka "Cool Car" and made driving noises! Afterwards you mowed the grass and only stopped to eat dinner and a cupcake. We stayed in a lake condo with the family and enjoyed skipping rocks with daddy on the lake. You slept so well while you were there and the first thing you'd say in the morning was "Ah-ba" aka Ava! We had a great time and Mindy took our family photos. She was phenomenal!

You weigh about 24 lbs. We aren't so sure how tall you are, but you do look like you just shoot up all of the sudden. Daddy and I will look at eachother and say, "doesn't he look bigger!" You are in 2T shirts and 18-24 month shorts. You wear a size 6 shoe...but could probably be in a 7!

Swimming is a new found love! We took a couple lessons with Avery. She did a great job being patient with you, but you weren't so into them and cried for Mama. Later the next week Daddy and I took you swimming and you were trying to do it all on your own. You're blowing bubbles in the water and kicking your feet. I have a feeling you'll be swimming very soon because you love it so much!

Your eating habits go up and down in terms of how much you eat. I can tell when your growing because you love any foods and eat it all, but other days you just snack and pick at your food. Some of your favorites are cheese, almonds, dried cranberries, sausage, eggs, chicken quesadillas, pizza, Mommy's shake, bars, grapes, apples, hummus and pita chips, blueberries, and cookies. You love eating your vitamins every morning and ask for them whenever I am talking to Lolli on the phone! You're getting good at saying exactly what you want.

We spent a day on Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Hartwell with the family and you had your first boat ride on a big lake! Papa took you on a ride on his boat and you wore your life-vest, hat, and sunglasses. You loved it and have asked for a ride on Papa's boat many times since then.

There was another first this month as well: you took your first trip to the ER! Friday morning you woke us up crying hysterically. It was 1:30 am and your fever was 103.5. I texted Aunt E and she told me to give you Tylenol or Motrin, fluids, and check your temp again in about 45 min. We did and your fever dropped to 101. You wanted to go back to your bed, so that's where you slept. I set my alarm to check on you in another 45 min, but at 2:30 you started crying again. Daddy went in to check on you and you were shaking. It looked like you were getting little zaps every 3-4 seconds and would scream out in pain. I was super scared and couldn't hold you, so I handed you back to him and ran around to get dressed and get your bag together so we could head to the ER. About 2 minutes later you had calmed down and didn't have a fever. I called the nurse on call at your pediatrician and she recommended we head to the ER to check. Once there they took chest xrays, blood, your vitals, and ruled out a lot of things. You were a big boy for the majority, but when some of the drs and nurses came in you'd poke out that bottom lip and say "Mommy's car"! You went home with no fever and the diagnosis of Febrile Illness which means sick with a fever and they weren't sure what was causing it. We visited Dr. Johnson, who is amazing, and he said it was most likely a viral illness and you looked good. Later that evening your fever went up to 103.6 and back down until Saturday night when it spiked up again. You were the sweetest baby and we felt so bad for you. You snuggled with us a lot. We think you may have had a tummy bug and are super glad it's gone and you're allllll better! Mimi brought you some banana bread that you enjoyed when you felt better!

You had your 5th haircut and were not happy about it. Your lip poked out and the tears started coming. You even pushed Miss Carrie's hands away from trying to put the cape on. Thankfully they had a mini Uga dog that sat with you. I also told you that you had to stay still or else the clippers would bite you. That seemed to work really well and your hair looked great!

E bought you a cool golf set. Every morning for the past week you've woken up saying, "ball. hit ball?" You love to be just like your daddy!

Our nighttime routine is my favorite! We have supper, play outside, Daddy gives you a bath and gets your pjs on, and we pray, I read you stories, rock, and sing to you. Then you go right to bed in your crib with your "b-ta", Uga, and Uga's "b-ta". Many nights I will say "Good night, I love you and Jesus loves you" and you will respond "of you" which means "love you". You melt our heart!
