I am ashamed to say I have not kept up with my blogging not one bit!
It is almost the end of the year and I have kept so busy that I just haven't "found" the time. 
I am hoping to change that and make some time :)
I have some pretty awesome things in the works in my life!
Stay tuned.....

Style with Child

I have many obsessions....

One happens to be maternity/nursing clothes. Yes I am still nursing the baby at 8 months and no I'm not stopping. Oh and No I'm not pregnant with baby #2 but I enjoy maternity fashions way more than regular clothing. One brand I am really obsessed with is Hatch by Two Birds
What I love about this brand is you can wear it pregnant or not pregnant it all looks good!
I need every single piece..really I do. 
The Cardigan

The Afternoon Dress because my morning dress will expire at noon

The Dinner Party Dress
I need this is every color and print..ok its $348.
so I will get it in black 

This is just a little taste check out the website for 14 AMAZING looks.
Hmm the 1st piece will be the cardi because it is very versatile!

New Years Resolutions 2012

I hate the word Resolution to me it = failed promises. I was talking to my mom about it and she suggested that I don't make promises I can't keep and just working on it is a success! So here are my New Years resolutions for 2012. I feel like I have to have some "accountability" in place so that I actually "try" to work on these task. So I will update you weekly on what I have done. Words of encouragement are welcome!

1. Organize the House

2. Unpack the remainder of my house & a Cleaning Schedule

3. House hunt

4. Get a membership to the YMCA and USE it

5. Eat healthier and only eat out Once a week.
6. Work on my career for after baby. 
(I think I may have just found my passion)

7. Blog more
8. Plan for baby #2

9. Rid myself of disposables and become a more sustainable household
10. Plant a garden for veggies.

I think this is a great start and if I actually complete any of it..I will be happy with myself! What are your NY resolutions for 2012? How do you plan to accomplish them? If you have any suggestions please comment at the bottom :)
