So, it has been quite quiet over here for a long time. Sorry about that. This past summer I got a promotion at work, so that meant putting Tory in preschool and working long days, just like everyone else with a full time job. Then, something very, very exciting happened!!! Joey got a new job in Texas so that meant that we got to move back home. Bye bye Baton Rouge, you won't be missed. At all. So I have spent August, September and October house hunting, traveling back and forth between Louisiana and Texas, packing and unpacking. Also, Tory had her third birthday last week so I had a birthday party to put together on top of everything else!!!! So that explains why this blog has been quite neglected lately. Again, sorry about that.
Once Joey and I got settled into our new home in Houston, I put Tory into a new preschool here and she is quite the little diva. My mom took her to Nordstrom to get some new, cool school clothes!! Tory only goes three days a week. The point is to give me a break during the week and she actually wants to go to preschool. She loves socializing and playing with other kids. I am just working on the weekends for now. And during those three days a week she is at preschool, I can get my ducks all in a row (and take a nap). It is amazing how fast kids grow out of their clothes!! I buy so much for her every season and I just took her shopping and she already grew out of her shoes, pants and tops!!! So thank goodness my mom told me she'd help me out and get her some new things for the Fall and Winter seasons!!
Nordstrom kids has the cutest things right now!! I LOVE the kids line, Mini Boden!! Adorable!! I love quirky and fun and Mini Boden is both of those!! I think when it gets a little colder, I'm going to get her some of their winter coats. Another positive things about being back in Texas is that there is actually a Nordstroms here!! Yeah!! I think there was a Saks in New Orleans but other than that, there isn't much in Louisiana when it comes to fashion (or high fashion). Although, there were some really cute boutiques in Baton Rouge that I loved shopping at (Rodeo, Head over Heels, NK Boutique).
One specific item that I am obsessed with right now are Dr. Marten boots for toddlers!!! I think I put them on her almost every time she goes to preschool. I got her a pink pair and floral pair about 6 months ago, but she has already grown out of them!! So we're having fun pairing the purple color with her Mini Boden and other cute clothes my mom got her. I am also obsessed with converse for babies and toddlers!! How cute are those purple ones from above? Tory's cousin, Ragan, actually got her those for her birthday! Another favorite spot to pick up some cute clothes for the kiddo is Baby Gap!! Baby Gap understands my love for hats and all things cute!! I cannot wait until the Kate Spade line for Baby Gap launches on the 30th!!!
