Ramblings of a newly appointed housewife

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments yesterday!  Once I got over my initial sadness, I realized that I am actually super excited to be able to stay home with my sweet little nut and I'm very lucky to be in the position to do so!  


I wore this outfit on Sunday.  I was so glad it was nice out because after looking at all the beautiful full skirted dresses online, I couldn't wait to wear one that was already in my closet!



I really wanted to take outdoor shots, but when we went out for our walk, it was so windy we had to hold on super tight to the stroller - and my dress!!  So back indoors we went.  Hey, at least it was a warm wind.... I'll take what I can get!



I have been all about my red shoes lately - they seem to go with everything!  Maybe I'll wear them in every outfit this week...  yes, I think I will! :)

My son is now trying to plug his pacifier into the outlet - I must go before he figures out how to get the safety plugs out...

  1. You look fabulous in this dress!! and of course the shoes are still fabulous!
    I just saw yesterday's post. When I started having the babies, I left a high powered PR job to stay home with my kids. At first I missed the worklife a little...but soon, I was way too busy to miss anything! It was a fun, special time that I am so glad I had. I returned to the work world to provide private education for the kids and I have been working ever since. When working at their school, I saw them more than if I had been at home. Being at a school with one of my kids officially ends in May and it is bittersweet!! I predict that you will love this decision...each day with your child is a special gift that goes away all too quickly. I cannot believe how quickly!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that dress!

    At first I thought you had a yellow flower in your hair and I was confused. Then I realized it was a lion on the wall and felt like an idiot.
