Perfect Weekend

{Sweater: J.Crew (old) - love this one / Shirt: J.Crew (sold out) - sim / Skirt: J.Crew (old) - sim / Necklace: Gift from D (brand unknown) / Boots: Banana Republic (old) - sim / Watch: Gift from D}

This weekend was nothing short of perfect! Friday night dinner and Saturday lunch meals with wonderful friends, an amazing Saturday afternoon nap for all of us, and homemade pizza and LOST marathon 'date' with D Saturday night. And if that wasn't good enough...Yishai slept in until 10 this morning!! I don't know what these parents did to deserve that gift, but thank you baby boy, from the bottom of your mommy's and tati's hearts. Refreshed from sleeping in, we did major spring cleaning around this little home. Is it weird that packing away unnecessary items and purging unwanted clutter gives me such a rush?

We have a cake smash photo-shoot for Yishai's one-year birthday scheduled for tomorrow morning and I can't wait to post the pictures of my little man covered from head to toe in cake :)

Have a wonderful week, whatever it may have in store for you!

That one day when D tried to take pictures while holding a baby.

{Shirt: J.Crew (old) - sim, splurge! / Blazer: Banana Republic (old) - sim / Skirt: Gap (old) / Boots: UGG - sim, tall / Necklace: J.Crew (old) - sim / Sunnies: LOFT (old) - sim, splurge! / Watch: Gift from D}

Please pardon the lack and quality of these photos! For some reason, D and I thought it would be a good idea to take outfit photos quickly while he was holding Yishai. Yeah, that was a photo-taking fail...but extremely funny for me to watch him try to balance Yishai on his non-existant 'hip', while trying to focus/adjust the camera settings and help direct me. Let's just say that most of these photos were photo-bombed by blurry little fingers. This man of mine, what he does for me!

With black + white being spot on for spring, I'm busy dreaming up ways to incorporate the combo into fun, flirty outfits. Now all we need is the warm weather to wear skirts without tights!
