Birmingham

For the long weekend, we took a quick drive down to Birmingham and had a great time!

Since Joe also had off on Friday, we drove down Thursday evening and stayed at The Hotel Highland in the Five Points area of downtown Birmingham. I always like staying downtown when I visit a city, even if that means paying extra. I like to be able to walk out the front door and have things for us to do. And The Highland definitely fit the bill!

Uptown Downtown

I always think the most quintessential J.Crew look you can wear is when you mix something more Uptown (i.e. this skirt) with something Downtown (i.e. these sneakers and jacket).




I have had this jacketĀ for a while and just love it…perfect fit and color, plus you can’t beat the price! These sneakers were from the Superga collection at Target but I also wear theseĀ Old Navy ones a lot.

Judy AnneĀ 

My dearest little girl is now two. I am the mother of a two year old and a three year old…hard to believe sometimes! 

I’d like to tell you a little bit about Miss Judy before I share details of her party šŸ™‚


I found out I was pregnant with her when Louis was just 11 months old. I always wanted my kids to be close in age but this was definitely a little quicker than we planned! It took a while to get pregnant with Louis so we assumed the same would happen for the second…not so much! 

Kiss KissĀ 

I love February! It’s a short month. It’s my daughter’s birthday month. It’s love month! Any excuse to wear hearts and kisses is good by me.


I snagged this teeĀ during J. Crew’s Black Friday and have been loving it ever since! Paired it with this cute jacketĀ (make sure you size up!) from SheIn, my trusty white sneakersĀ and a pair of pajama style pants from Banana Republic that I just love.
