Last Wednesday was Truman’s first birthday & the whole day was perfect! First things first… How do I have a ONE year old?! It’s so crazy to me. It was an emotional, yet amazing day celebrating my greatest blessing. It was a good time to look back and reflect on the millions of amazing moments and memories we made with him over the past year! Our lives have definitely been changed for the better and I can’t wait to keep watching him learn and grow! Our sweet big boy–We love him SO much. 

We wanted to fill the day with all the things that Truman LOVES! He woke up and we brought him into the living room which was FILLED with toys… Not even exaggerating one bit! Haha! That boy is one spoiled baby. It was hilarious to watch him look at his new toys. He screamed and clapped and was just SO excited. You could tell he felt extra special, especially with all of my family in town for the big day who gave him an overload of attention.  

He had his favorite for breakfast- a donut (just like his mama) while we sang happy birthday to him! He loves donuts, but hates making himself messy. He carefully ate his donut 😂 making sure to not get it all over himself. 

After that, we got him ready and headed to downtown Houston for some exploring. We stopped at some museums, walked around, & played at a park! He had a blast roaming around & cheesing at everyone we met. 

Next, we went to a late lunch at Truman’s favorite… Chic Filet & got him his first little kid’s meal! He felt like such a big boy feeding himself and drinking out of a juice box while we all watched and laughed at his silliness… It was hilarious! He was loving all of the fun attention he was surrounded by!

After lunch, we headed to the pool! Truman is a water baby and is obsessed with swimming. As soon as he sees a pool, he tries to wiggle his way out of my arms and make a run for the water! He had such a good time swimming with his daddy, my sisters, & I. He could’ve stayed there for hours!

After a long and fun day of adventures and celebrating it was time to call it a day. He had the best day and it made my heart so full to see him so excited and happy! He is the best little baby and so full of personality, energy, and charm. I’m so thankful he is mine! His first birthday was a perfect one and will forever be remembered by so many family members who love and treasure him just as Sid and I do. Truman Jon Thompson, you are ONE loved little boy!!!

Austin Photo Diary

 This weekend we road tripped it to Austin with my family! We were able to explore and do so many fun things! We absolutely fell in love with this beautiful city! Everything from the Texas Capitol, SoCo, live music, wall art, restaurants, & food trucks…yum! Being with my family is always a goooood time. We made some amazing memories that I will never forget! If you have the chance to go there, definitely do it :)

I’ve had the b e s t week celebrating Truman’s birthday + having my family in town! We’ve been so busy getting in lots of exploring, party prepping, & having lotsssss of play time with all of Tru’s new toys. It’s been so fun!

Onto this outfit… I’m SO happy denim skirts are making a comeback! They are SO cute when paired with the right items. I wanted to keep this outfit fun and simple. I wore the skirt with one of my favorite comfy tees and new wedges and called it good! I love how comfy, yet put together I felt to run around exploring Houston. I will be sharing more details about Tru’s birthday and of course his birthday party, which is tomorrow… We are SO excited! Have a great weekend! XO 

Keeping It Bright 

            

MY OUTFIT: DRESS C/O MAGGY LONDON | BLAZER | SHOES | BAG C/O LITTLE UNICORN | WATCH

TRUMAN’S OUTFIT: SHIRT | MOCCS C/O SWEET N SWAG 

Our weather has been so rainy lately! Yesterday the sun was finally shining, so I thought it was the perfect time to celebrate and wear my new bright, colorful dress 😉 I absolutely love Maggy London. This dress is from their summer line and is so pretty, light for summer, & comfy enough to chase my little around in. I received so many compliments at church & it’s definitely a new favorite in my closet! Did you notice the detail on the side?? SWOOON worthy!

I also wanted to tell you all about one of my favorite companies for diaper bags! Little Unicorn has some beautiful bags that do not look like the typical diaper bag. They actually fit so much stuff  in them and have lots of organizing pockets which helps keep everything nice & tidy! I am in love with this pretty and stylish bag and how efficient it is! Mamas, if you haven’t already checked them out, make sure to!

Truman has been so cute this week! He’s testing his boundaries and wants to be super independent, but he never goes too far. He will act like a stinker and run away from me, but then comes back and wraps his arms around my legs super tight or walks close to me for a bit. It’s the cutest thing and I love that he knows his mama is always the best place to come back to! Also- his clapping is out of control cute 😍 He turns ONE this week.. Ugh be still my heart!! I hope you all have a great and fun Monday, friends!

TRUMAN’S OUTFIT: TOP C/O DON DOM APPAREL| BOTTOMS (SOLD) | SHOES 

Today is Father’s Day, so I thought it would be only right to dedicate a whole post to the man I love the most! This is Sid’s very first Father’s Day and he definitely deserves a day dedicated to him. He’s the absolute b e s t dad to Truman and most amazing husband to me. He is kind, supportive, loving, patient, hilarious, and wise. He brings so much love & happiness into our home and I couldn’t ask for a better man to help raise our children. Truman absolutely LOVES his daddy (as you can see in these pics!). He lights up every day when he hears the front door open and runs to greet his dad after a long day of work. Those two are the best of buds and keep each other laughing at all times! I always knew Sid would be an amazing dad, but to see him in this new role makes me fall in love with him all over again! He is amazing and Truman and I couldn’t be more blessed to have him. Sid is a pillar of strength for me, I cant adequately begin to express my love and gratitude for him. He is an amazing dad and husband and I thank my lucky stars for him every day. We love you, babe! 

Half Up Braided Tutorial

I filmed this a few weeks ago, so excuse my horrible roots! Don’t worry- they’ve since been touched up. 😉 This is a simple braided half up hairstyle! It’s super easy & a fun look to try! Let me know if you try it & tag me so that I can see! XOXO

Tru & I

       

& just like that my baby is 11 months old. Lately I’ve been trying my best to drop everything + be present for my baby above and beyond anything else. I want to enjoy every second with him & let him know I’m always there for him. 

Dear Tru, you are my everything. I love you with my whole heart! I wish we could stay in this perfect moment forever. 

The White Dress: Date Night

          

DRESS, HEELS, PURSE, NECKLACE C/O LULU*S | LIPSTICK (SNOB) | EYESHADOW (BASE: ALL THAT GLITTERS, CREASE: PRINT) 

In the summer time, there is nothing that I love more than bright whites! As I’m sure most of my readers know, I also love any chance to get dolled up. When I saw this dress, I knew I had to style it for a romantic date night and I’m ecstatic to say it was a hit!

LULU*S has been my go-to for dresses lately. This one is so comfy & flattering. Sid kept on saying how much he loved it on me, which of course every girl loves to hear from her man! 

I wanted to keep the look fresh and neutral. I paired it with golds & a pop of light pink to keep the look bright for summer. It made for the perfect date night outfit & I felt so incredibly pretty + confident! A lot of times, us girls can be afraid of white and tend to stick to the classic LBD (little black dress), but girls….THIS dress trumps that completely! It was soo amazing not having to worry about the length and modesty! Aaaand it compliments any body type perfectly. The cut is super flattering, elegant, and classy. I definitely think it’s so important for girls to glam up every now and then & feel extra special! Once again, LULU ‘s didn’t disappoint because every girl NEEDS this dress in their closet! Order up and get your date on 😉 

A Little Boho Flare

        

TOP C/O SEQUIN SKY | JEANS & WEDGES C/O LOLOELLE BOUTIQUE | WATCH | GOLD BRACELT C/O TAUDREY | BANGLES 

One of my favorite styles to play with is boho! I love how girly, fun, & effortlessly sexy it can be. I have been a huge fan of flares for a long time! These are one of my all time favs as they have the perfect amount of stretch and are super flattering! They make a shorter, petite girl like me look like I have legs for days…which is always a plus! 😉  Also, how DARLING is this top?! It is from the new boutique Sequin Sky that I’m extremely excited to share the news with you about! They have some way cute clothing that I’m sure you will all loveeee!! When I saw this top I had to have it…the lace and floral detail are my favorite girly combo and gives it a romantic vibe that’s just dreamy! Can you tell I’m a little stoked about this new boutique?! Seriouslyyyy, everyone needs to check them out and guess what?! You can head over to my instagram (@dthompsy) to enter to win a $50 gift card to Sequin Sky!

TOP C/O LULU*S (SOLD- SIMILAR HERE) | JOGGERS C/O WINDSOR | SHOES | SUNGLASSES | BANGLES   

One of my most favorite places to visit is home to see my family. I’m lucky enough to be able to see them very often and we constantly use ANY excuse to make it happen! Each time is just as special as the last and I love each memory we make. My parents are seriously SO amazing and supportive and are an incredibly fun pair who go out of their way to make sure we have a blast together. They make each one of their kids feel so special and loved. I’ve always admired them for that and hope to be able to do the same for my Truman and my future babies! My siblings and I are each other’s biggest supporters and that is because this is exactly the way our parents raised us to be. Not ever are we jealous of each others successes as we always want the VERY best for one another!  This time we celebrated the high school graduation of my sister Cassidy and my baby sister Macaily’s patriarchal blessing. They are such special girls and I am so proud of them both! It was indeed one of the best times together and many special moments were shared as well as countless laughs and tears of joy!  

Every time I visit home, I leave recharged and inspired. My family ALWAYS supports me in all that I do and always pushes me to go after each one of my dreams. This time was no different! 

I still cry every time I leave home- it’s even worse now, because my heart aches knowing my family will have to miss out on some of the special  moments Sid and I will experience with Truman. I have to remember how great we really do have it and how much Truman already knows and loves his papa and nana! We are super excited to have them come visit us in a couple of weeks in our new home city, Houston! Have I mentioned how much we love it in Texas?! Sid and I feel so at home there- but honestly, I feel so at home wherever he is. He is amazing and I thank my lucky stars every day that I get to be married to him. I can’t WAIT to get back home to him! We’ve only be away from each other for a week and it’s too much to handle haha! I’m excited to get back to our home and our routine. PLUS my little mr. handsome has a special day coming up, so I am in Operation Party Plan! 

Woot, woot!! Xoxo
