Photo Break!

I have been busy trying to juggle working, being a mom, keeping the house clean, having a social life and trying to enjoy the little bit of summer we have left.

I am going to post soon about the furniture rearranging I am planning. (anyone in the market for an electric fireplace?) Maybe some before and afters..who knows things might get wild over here.

Here is what we have been up to lately

New Shoes!

Asher finally got his new Freshly Picked moccs in the mail this week. A first birthday gift from Dorota, Jay and little Rocco! I have to say these are the first pair of shoes he has had that he hasn't just immediately torn off of his feet. They are also super stylish he has gotten compliments everywhere we go.

I first saw these moccs when Mason Disick (Kourtney Kardashian's son) was wearing them everywhere (note-Keeping Up With The Kardashians is my guilty pleasure obsessed!)

Here is the adorable Asher in his Freshly Picked moccs.

They are awesome! And right now Susan, the maker of these amazing moccs and writer of is having a grow with me giveaway. If you want these amazing moccs for your little one at every stage from infant to toddler, follow this link to enter!

Hope you're all having an AWESOME weekend!

Best Invention!

Wes has always complained about trying to snap on Ashers clothes and sleepers, anyone with a wriggly baby totally gets it. I was shopping at McNally Robinson the other day and I saw these baby sleepers with magnetic fastners. If they had Ashers size I would have totally splurged on one. Check it out here.
this baby looks like he loves it

I am not much of a party planner so for Ashers first birthday I turned to One Charming Party to come up with an idea. They had the cutest little monster party theme. Asher doesn't have too many little buddies his age so we didn't have any games or goodie bags, but I did make the adorable monster cupcakes.

It's hard to believe a year has gone by since this little man entered our lives. Becoming a parent is such an amazing thing and no matter how many books you read or how prepared you think you are nothing prepares you for the love you feel, the sleep you loose, the mistakes you make, the fun you have, the mom jokes you all of a sudden start to make...I could go on and on. I can't wait for what this next year has to bring.

One of my best friends Dorota went into labour on Ashers birthday and 33 hours later on the 30th of June gave birth to Ashers new best friend Rocco!

My life has simply been to busy to write anything. I am now back at work and have been for a little over a month now. The transition has gone surprisingly smooth for both Asher and I. I am so blessed to have my parents and in-laws take care of Asher while I am at work and that has taken a boat load of stress out of it.

Being back at work I can equate to riding a bike; I feel like this job is a skill I never loose. Good thing, Bad thing I don't know. Since being back I have applied and interviewed for a promotion. (fingers crossed)

My wedding is pretty much planned now I just have to wait until next year, this means I am constantly changing my mind about things though. I think I have picked 3 different bridesmaid dresses and still am not sure of which ones to go with (I want my girls to look goooood!) The things that are set in stone are...

Date---July 14, 2012
Location---The Gates
The Dress---no you don't get to see this
The Shoes---can't see this either
The Photographer---The lovely Michelle Zerr

Wes is still trying to convince me to have a destanation wedding. Not sold. However if I did I would like to get married here or here.

I would love to have these people do my wedding...don't think it's in the budget though.

Asher is now almost 14 months old! (gasp) He also has a vocabulary of about 30+ words my little genius! He had an awesome 1st birthday party that I have to post about.

For now I will leave you with some pictures of my summer so far!
