Excited to take Joseph to the beach for the first time this week –  hope everyone enjoys this Fourth of July weekend!

I’ve never really liked carnations but when I saw these dusty rose colored carnations I fell in love! The color has a romantic vintage feel that I couldn’t resist.

Joseph and I LOVE this blue knit blanket my aunt made for him.

Nothing like feeding your baby their first solid food! Joseph ate like a champ just like I thought he would.  Not the greatest shot of him but it was the best I could get because he wouldn’t stop moving.

All I use during the summer for a little lip color.

I’ve been trying to be good about my eating habits because I really would love to lose all this baby weight.  One of the biggest changes I’ve made is swapping out a cup of mid-day coffee with a cup of iced water with lime.  Lime juice in cold water  not only promotes weight loss but it’s also an excellent anti-oxidant.

Never Settle for Less!

While I’m no Dr. Phil, I can tell you a little something about the concept of “not settling for less.”  Not long ago I was working long, hard hours in retail and totally obsessed with making my numbers.  In the process I forgot about myself and had become overweight and perpetually exhausted.  It was a tragic irony: I loved fashion but I couldn’t even fit into the clothes I worked with!  The change for me, the moment I realized I wasn’t going to “settle for less,” happened at a doctor’s office after stepping on that monster-sized contraption called a scale. Although I wasn’t really paying much mind to the results, it started to get a little uncomfortable when the nurse took what seemed like an hour to balance the scale (she finally looked at me and said, “maybe it’s the shoes!”). While I won’t bore you with the exercise regiment and change in diet, I will tell you that I wouldn’t have lost nearly 100 pounds without the help and guidance I received from friends and relatives.  Now whenever I go to the doctor’s office and stand on that imposing scale, I leave my shoes on!
