Miles Three Months

Sweet mother of pearl, Miles is THREE MONTHS old!!  WHAT?!  Aside from being the easiest baby ever, this handsome guy is growing like a weed and getting bigger by the day. We're talking 15 pounds type of big (just call me super boobies).  A few noteworthy things include laughing, sitting up for about 4.5 seconds and rolling over like a champ.  And let's not forget, he's pretty cute too!  Now if he would stop growing so quickly, I would be one happy camper!

The Days of Our Lives

It's been three weeks since we moved into our new home and I finally had the time to sit down and upload a few pictures to the computer when I realized it's been a hot minute since I've blogged.  So I decided to share a few random pictures (lucky you). 

This little guy will be three months old in a few short days. WHAT?!  It's funny, people always told me how quickly kids grow up, but I don't think I truly understood what they meant until I had kids. I'm not sure where all that time goes, but I wish it would slow down.  I think we all wish it would slow down! 

Mila and I have started getting in the Christmas spirit lately.  We're not quite ready to bring out the tree, but we sure are ready for some ginger bread cookies and Christmas music!  I put Mila in charge of making the cookies while I was in charge of eating them.  She was happy and so was I! 

Over the past few weeks, Mila has really started to pick up the things we say.  Which is usually fine, but of course she picks up some less than great words.  Right after taking this picture, she quickly yells, "Mom!  There's a damn fly in here!!"  I guess it's time to get a bar of soap for mommy and daddy's mouths.  

This guy.  He's the fun one and I'm totally okay with that!  Mila's in love with him and keeps saying they're going to get married.  She keeps asking if she can wear my wedding dress for their wedding. It's by far one of the sweetest things ever!

New Home, New Lights

If you follow me on instagram (@karhill), then you know we just bought a new house!  *screams*

Like any new house, it's a blank slate and I have tons of amazing plans for it!  I'm full of great ideas.  
One of the first things on our to do list is switch out the traditional lighting for something more modern....more us!  

These are a few of my favorites....and they're all under $300!!  What?!

1. This gorgeous square chandelier makes me all sorts of giddy.  The sleek lines and substantial size make it perfect for our entry way / above the stairs....and in 1-2 weeks, it'll be all mine!  

2. This chandelier is like a sputnik on crack...and sadly it's on back order until December. Damn you West Elm.  So for now, it looks like I'll have to wait for a new dining room light.  

3. This flush mount.  I mean, do I even need to comment on how gorgeous it is?  Restoration Hardware really speaks my language.

4. This modern, frosted flush mount is going to make the perfect addition to Mila's room.  The mid century vibe is going to look gorgeous with her mid century furniture.  But sadly, it's also on back
order.  booooo. 

We're still trying to decide on lights for the master bedroom, Miles room and the play room, but the fact that we've already finalized the rest of the lighting is nothing short of a miracle.  

I can't wait to share pictures of our new home and of course, all our progress!

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

This girl.  She keeps me on my toes and is the reason I keep finding grey hairs!  She's filled with sass and sometimes a pain in my...well, you know. 

She's the most "passionate" three year old you'll ever meet.  
The other day I walk in only to find her carrying the cat around by it's tail.  It's tail!
Of course, this is nothing out of the ordinary....but still. 

She's also a little comedian and loves telling us jokes.  They usually go a little something like, "Can I tell you a funny joke?  Knock, knock. Who's there?  MILA!!!"  Did I mention that whole conversation was just Mila talking?  Comedian I'm telling you.  

I'm convinced that Mila is the most cultured three year old out there.  The Beatles are her favorite band, Jersey Boys is her favorite movie and she loves strong coffee.  #momfail

She's also the cutest little girl I ever did see.  

Case and point.

New Orleans

About two weeks ago, Ryan had a business trip planned for New Orleans.  Now, if you know me or have followed us for anytime, you know New Orleans is pretty much my favorite place...EVER.  
The food, the history, the architecture...what's not to love?  
So naturally I wanted to tag along.  However, with a newborn flying was out of the question.
After a lot of thought, we decided to go for it. I would drive down to the Big Easy with the kids and meet Ryan. 
Crazy, right?
A ten hour road trip with a three week old and a three year old was no walk in the park, but it was so worth it!

The kids and I had a great time!  Unfortunately, it rained for most of our stay so I had to think outside of  the box for fun, kid-friendly things to do.  

The top of our list?  Beignets!  At Cafe Beignet, of course.  This was a huge hit with Mila!  But really, anything with sugar is.   

Next on our list was Mardis Gras World!  Now, if you've never been here, I suggest you make a trip A.S.A.P!
This is where all of the Mardis Gras parade floats and statues are stored.  Bad ass.  It's located right off the pier and so full of culture.  I loved it and so did Mila!

We also spent quite a bit of time enjoying the rain at our hotels courtyard.  I know, that doesn't sound to interesting, but seriously, it was beautiful!

And lastly, we did what every tourist does and went to Cafe Du Monde. There's no such thing as to many beignets ya know.  

We had such a wonderful time and I'm already dying to go back.  This was definitely a trip I will never forget!

It's Fall, Y'all

It's that time of the year again!  Pumpkin spice everything, changing colors and cooler temperatures....unless of course you live in Texas. boo!  To celebrate the kick off of our favorite season we decided to check out Autumn at the Arboretum.  And let me tell you, it did not disappoint! How could it when it has 75,000 pumpkins and Cinderellas carriage!! WHAT?!  Mila was in heaven. 

Now to go watch Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown!
Happy Fall, Y'all.
