Online Shopping - Literally

All these fall temps mean my wardrobe needs to kick it into high gear. Luckily for this stellar mom pouch I am now rocking, the trends seem to be slouchy sweaters and legging jeans.

Much to the husband's dismay, I am introducing little girl to all the best shopping areas our great town has to offer. But... I am loving all these online boutiques and their great prices. Here are a few web favorites:

Scary Soiree

I am not a huge fan of Halloween but I know that will change in the future with the addition of our little one. While skeletons, witches and goblins are authentic Halloween decor staples, I think you can put a spin on your traditional fall decorations for any upcoming spooky event. Consider hosting a pre-trick or treat get together or a pumpkin carving party and both can be adult/kid friendly.

Mary Tilman: One Month Update

Sweet Mary Tilman is one month old (or was this past weekend). Since I spared you weekly pregnancy updates I decided to document monthly baby updates. This is really just for me and my memories if we are being honest here.



Weight: 9 lbs, 6 oz (Little one has put on over 2 lbs since our last pediatrician visit).

Height: 22 inches long

Sleep: We are still working on this but I can proudly say you have gone a few nights with just one nighttime feeding. I think I am at fault on this because I have not been following the MOC recommendations as much as I should, but your doctor gave me some good suggestions on making sleep a priority for both of us.

Clothes/Diapers: You are still in newborn diapers but will need to move up here in the near future. You are also still in 0-3 months clothes, but luckily your grandmothers saved plenty of gowns from our childhoods so your closet is stocked.

Diet: Milk... enough said

Favorite Gear: Stroller, swaddle blankets, Wubbanub

Milestones/Firsts: You have had several outings around town and a trip to the pumpkin farm. You also have started smiling and found your voice. You have also been nicknamed "Stinker" because you have mastered the perfect cry enough to send your dad or I running... only to be fooled and find no tears and a perfectly happy baby.

Likes: Eating, your Daddy, snuggling

Dislikes: Bathtime, dirty diapers, "the witching hour" before bed

Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend, we made our usual trek up to the pumpkin patch. The weather was perfect and little Miss Mary Tilman did amazing. So good, in fact, that we could squeeze in a quick stop at the outlets.

If you are in the Atlanta area, you must visit Burt's Farm in Dawsonville. It is crazy packed but the selection is amazing!

Side note: I am wearing the J. Crew swing sweater that was part of their sale last week. I may buy like 12 more because they truly do live up to the hype.
