Celebrating Spring + Atlas’ Half Birthday
It has been a celebratory week in this household! For starters, Atlas turned 6 months old today.
Also, NYC got hit with spring weather this week. Sunshine + temperatures in the 50’s made me want to do a happy dance.
And all God’s people said…”Aaaaamen!”
I got the above t-shirt from Target during my Florida trip for $8 and I wish I would have bought it in every color. A year ago, I would have turned my nose up to an $8 t-shirt, but now that I’m in the trenches of motherhood every day I refuse to spend more than $15 on a shirt because being a mom is a dirty job. When I get puked on (which is pretty much every day) I stress a whole lot less knowing my shirt only cost me $8. So, if you’re looking for a great, cheap t-shirt go to Target. And then with all the money you save on Target t-shirts, buy a pair of Tieks. I have a few pair of Tory Burch flats that I love, but I think my Tieks are becoming my favorite…maybe…I don’t know…I can’t pick favorites…it is like asking me to pick a favorite between my kids…I love them all the same.
Anyways, this week we celebrated the warm weather & Atlas’ half birthday with frozen yogurt and a trip to the park with friends.
We went with Atlas’ friend, Dylan, who also turned 6 months old this week. They are 2 days apart and Nancy (←Dylan’s mom) & I are hoping they grow up to be best buds.
Nancy, her au pair, Jasmin, and I enjoyed chatting away and soaking up the sunshine while the boys played on the swings for the first time. So cute, right?
Atlas and Dylan both loved it! I’m pretty sure listening to my child giggling in the swing was one of the best things I’ve ever experienced. It was so great I made Dave come to the park with us again this weekend to experience it. Nancy, Dylan and her husband, Mike, met us at the park today and we all enjoyed another great afternoon outside.
We continued our celebration with a family walk through Central Park.
You can see more pictures of all that jazz if you follow me on Instagram.
By the way, you guys are instagramin’ fools. I’m new to that whole world and I’m sad I was so late to the party. I love seeing all your pictures! It is so fun to stalk you guys and live vicariously through you! I’m way behind on blog reading, but I have enjoyed keeping up with ya’ll via IG.
I continued to take advantage of the spring weather by going for an easy run along the Hudson River with Ob before returning home to make some stir-fry for dinner.
And if we needed one more reason to celebrate, we just got it. We ordered donuts and they were just delivered and they gave us extra by accident.
I’m turning 26 tomorrow so the celebration will be continuing through the rest of the weekend!
I hope you’re all having a fabulous Saturday! Talk to you party people later! xoxo
