Life In June!

I can't believe an entire month has passed since my 'Life In May' post, but it has! I decided to stick to these monthly picture posts for a while. So here's what we've been up to this month!

06/01/2015 - Charlotte moved to a big girl bed! She started mentioning that she wanted to sleep in a big bed like mommy and daddy, so we eventually decided she was ready. The transition went very smoothly. We put her to bed at night and when she wakes up the next morning she calls for us and asks for permission to get out of bed. Yes, it is THAT easy. 

06/04/2015 - Driving to work and enjoying all this prettiness riding shotgun with me. Unfortunately LV had another price increase, so I probably won't be picking up any new items anytime soon. Oh well, more time to enjoy the items I already have!

06/08/2015 - Charlotte on vacation with her friends! 

06/13/2015 - Selfie time! Experimenting with a new make-up routine! 

06/13/2015 - A couple of friends invited us to the Zoo. Charlotte is checking out the pinguins in this shot and she is absolutely loving it!

06/13/2015 - Not sure what this is, but it is definitely cool looking!

06/15/2015 - Charlotte proudly showing her freshly painted nails! She loves it when mommy gives her manicures and this coral color is just perfect for summer! 

06/20/2015 - Ever wondered what your kid is up to when you're at work? Well apparently something like this! I recieved this picture on my IPhone while I was in a meeting, and I just couldn't help but chuckle! 

06/29/2015 - Preparing for a heat wave coming our way! In just a couple of days we'll be experiencing 98 degrees out. Holy Guacamole! 

Well, that was it for this month! See you later!


My Second Blogiversary!

This week marks my second blog aniversary. Yes, I have been blogging for two years now! How crazy is that? I honestly never thought I would last this long, but I 'm definitely glad I stuck to it. I love that I have documented so many lovely memories to look back on. I thought it would be fun to celebrate this little fact my sharing some favorites from the last two years!

Most popular posts
In the last two year's I've written 87 blogposts, but not all of them were published (yet). Some posts had more reads than others, but there are three that really stick out. They were all published on Blogher.com as well which helped generate the many reads they got (most reads were on the Blogher,com website). My birth story 'How to smile your way through labor' was definitely the most read post with almost 8500(!) reads. My pregnancy experience with Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome and my Mommy Uniform post both recieved about 1000 reads per blogpost. Not bad considering the fact I never really expected anyone to read them. I probably should do more posts like these three. They were all very personal. But I must admit that sharing so much of myself with the world still feels a bit akward for me. If you are interested, here are the links to these three posts:
How To Smile Your Way Trough Labor
Pregnancy and Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome
The Mommy Uniform

My favorite posts
The most read posts are also pretty much my personal favorites. But I would probably swap out The Mommy Uniform for London, baby!. Mainly because it was such an awsome experience to visit London with my family and I love to look back on that.

My favorite Pictures
Pictures are a big part of my blog. Every post contains atleast one and all the pictures on this blog were pretty much all taken by me. Let me share some of my favorites from the last two years!
Remember when baby mugging was a thing? We sure do! :) 

Charlotte during our 2014 summer vacation in France. She was just released from the hospital and we were so glad o have her back on her feet! 

Sun + nature = love!
Me and my beautiful little nugget! I love the background and I love that we are both wearing matching pink coats. I am a sucker for cheesy stuff like that. 

I will never be a real fashion blogger, but this picture looks pretty legit! 

My favorite Experiences
The most awsome blogging experience was definitely being featured on Blogher.com. I visit their website daily and I've read so many incredible articles from so many incredible bloggers on there. That I got to be a part of that was absolutely incredible!

My second favorite experience is joining a fashion linkup. Like I mentioned before, I struggle with how much of I show on this blog, but doing this definitely helped getting my out of my comfort zone and trying out new things.

And third become an avid blog reader! I'm a busy girl, so sitting down and reading an entire book is a challenge for me. But if I have a couple of minutes to myself I love to scroll through my reading list and see what my favorite bloggers have been up to.

Well, that pretty much summons up my first two years of blogging! I'm curious to see where the third year will lead me. How long have you been blogging for?


Vacation with the girls!!

I don't know about you, but I'm in a vacation state of mind! Summer vacation is still a couple of weeks away, but luckily I had a mini vacation planned with a friend of mine and our three little diva's. And oh my, going on vacation with three little girls is just crazy! It was fun, it was wild, it was hectic and it sure was hot! It's been a while since I experienced 95 degrees out, so it definitely took some getting used to again! Throw three little energy explosion in the mix to run around after and you have a trip to remember! Haha!

95 degrees obviously meant a lot of swimming! Charlotte loved this little water spray thingy. So much that she now actually loves to takes showers! She always took baths before this trip because she was terrified of the water falling down on her head. This fun little thing definitely changed that!

We stayed at a vacation park that had a lot of activities for kids, which was a lot of fun for the girls! One of our favorite activities was face painting! Charlotte chose to be a butterfly and it was such a fun experience! If you have a little girl and you have the opportunity do get her face painted, go for it! Charlotte couldn't stop pretending to fly. She BECAME the butterfly! Haha! She looked at herself in the mirror for such a long time that she eventually had to make place for the girl that got her face painted after her. It was adorable to see!

The park also had a small petting zoo which is always a lot of fun! Charlotte loves animals and she loves to be around them. Unfortunately I have pretty bad allergies, so that makes pets pretty much impossible in our household. So we love to jump at the oppertunity to cuddle us some sheep and bunnies!

We had a few wonderful days together. But at the end of each day I just had to sit down and get me a proper coffee! I...NEEDED..IT!

So how about you? Are you already on your summer vacation countdown?
