Graphic Tee + Lace Shorts


 
 

I've gotten so many compliments on these shorts I received from Bohme.com!
They are so cute, If I saw another girl wearing them I would compliment her too!

Anyway, this is pretty much my new favorite outfit for summer.
Seriously, don't be surprised if I wear it more than once this week ;)
It is so comfortable and I'm loving how casual it is,
even though I'm wearing lace shorts!

Every girl needs to own a pair of lace shorts. This is my second pair that I own
and I just can't get enough of them! They are so classic and you can literally pair
them with any kind of shirt! I dressed them down for tonight with a comfy,
loose graphic tee. But I think they would look amazing with a Chambray Shirt!

Head over to Bohme.com now to get your pair before they sell out!

|| Play Time ||











Now that Josh is out of school for summer we can really start 
putting the office / play room together! It currently has been on 
hold and all we have done so far is paint. 

We sold our computer desk to make room for a bigger (and more kid friendly) one
and our desktop is just sitting on the floor! So it is a project that 
definitely needs to be finished asap! 

It will also be so nice to have a bigger room to play with Copeland
and a room where we can keep all his toys together. 

Right now we usually play in the family room which can get kinda cramped 
because Copeland likes to pull out EVERYTHING :)

I'm so excited to start getting into the details of this room by adding lots of color!
I want it to be a room that sparks imagination and play.

Can't wait to share the finished project with you guys, hopefully soon!

Featured || Bohme Boutiques

I am such a huge fan of Bohme Boutiques, I swear you guys 
I have an addiction and am literally in this store at least once a week!

 

 

I've kinda worn this blouse more times than I'm willing to admit in the past week!

But it is just so bright and cheerful with the bold floral print 
and paired with some white skinnies, it's an outfit that gets noticed!
Plus the soft and flowy material of the blouse is so breezy and cool 
for the hot summer days, it is definitely a great summer top! 

Not to mention, it's perfect blouse to wear with skinny jeans because if you're like me, 
I like shirts to be a little longer in the back when I'm wearing such tight jeans :)

I'm pretty much in love! What do you guys think!? 

Click Here to purchase this blouse and make sure to use the 
Promo Code NATALIE10 to recieve 10% off any purchase!!! 
But hurry, this blouse won't be in stock forever and 
the promo code expires June 30, 2014 @ 11:59 pm MDT!

I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend and spending lots of time out in the sun!

Josh and I went up to City Creek again yesterday and enjoyed the beautiful weather with Copeland.
I am so happy he decided to take a summer break from school. 
It has been a total dream having him home with us and not cooped 
up in the office doing homework! Copeland and I will definitely be 
taking advantage of these next few months with daddy! 
Because come August, his last and probably most time consuming semester begins!

PPB City Carryall c/o 

Are you crushing hard on this bag, like I am?
Petunia Pickle Bottom does it again! I swear they think of it all!
I have gotten so many compliments on this gorgeous diaper bag lately 
and I've been dying to share all the details of it! 

This is the Petunia Pickle Bottom City Carryall in Union Square Stop

Although I adore my PPB Black Forest Cake Hampton Holdall because of the 
classic and chic beauty of it, I adore this carryall just as much! 
It is the perfect diaper bag for anytime, but I especially love it for summer! 

The color is such a happy and bright green-yellow and it just screams sunshine :) 

This bag has been the perfect fit for us now that Copeland is getting older 
and I do not need to carry as many items as I was when he was just a little guy. 

The bag itself is so light, yet you can fit so many things inside, if needed!
With its several pockets on the outside of the bag, everything is so convenient to get to as well! 
It even has a pocket on the inside for binkies! Yep, like I said, they really do think of it all :) 

I also LOVE the fact it comes with a detachable changing station 
and a very chic Petunia Pickle Bottom monogrammed wipes case!
How great is that for days at the park or pool?! 
Your baby will thank you when your changing him on a padded 
changing pad and not just on a thin blanket :) 

It definitely is an eye catcher when your out and about with it's beautiful stitching, 
so be prepared to get lots of compliments on it! 

So for all you new mamas to be that need a good and classic diaper bag 
or if you're like me and just need an update as your little one grows then 
this is the perfect bag for you! 

So if you are dying to get your hands on it
(or really any of their beautiful products, like this Wanderlust Wallet that is pictured above,

He also says dada and it melts me!

|| Mother's Day Weekend ||

Happy {belated} Mothers Day to all you mommas!
I hope you were all spoiled :)





I can't even find the words to express how blessed I feel.

Becoming a mother is something that terrified me in so many ways, 
but now that I am one, it's just the most fulfilling job. Motherhood can be 
challenging at times. Waking up in the middle of the night to a crying baby 
will never be easy, but there is nothing like having someone need you so 
much and love you so incredibly. I still get butterflies when my little man is 
sitting on the floor and looks up at me with his arms reaching for me to hold him. 
He is the biggest blessing I've ever received and I can never thank God enough 
for giving him to me. 

I do feel quite lucky to have such a mellow baby though, so I can't complain too much. 
He rarely cries or whines. (Or maybe he cries just as much as any other baby, 
but I was just expecting the absolute worst?) whichever it is, he definitely has his 
daddy's laid back attitude. He sleeps in with me til 10, which I don't know how that happened!? 
He must have been watching us from heaven and knew his daddy and I liked to sleep in ;) 

I seriously cannot wait to give him siblings someday! 
Being a mom is truly the most special gift!

Anyway, we had a nice little weekend. 
Josh worked at the golf course Saturday morning and that afternoon we 
headed down to an outdoor shopping center in a few cities over from us. 
We enjoyed walking around, a little shopping and lunch at a burger joint. 

For Mother's Day on Sunday, I got to wake up to some yummy 
Nutella & strawberry waffles in bed. It was the cutest thing when Josh came in 
and Copeland was just crawling as fast as he could after him and when he 
peeked around the door and saw me he got all bashful and had the cutest little smile.
I wish I had my video camera near by! 

That afternoon we started prepping dinner for my mom and mother in law. 
We Bbq'd some chicken and corn on the cob. We also had to make some 
strawberry shortcake, because it's pretty much the best thing ever :) 

It was the perfect first Mother's Day. 
I just love my little family so much :) 

|| Psst... ||
 I've got some fun, cheap & easy DIY's coming this month 
and some pretty amazing product reviews! So stay tuned :)
