HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Fun fact... I had this outfit monogrammed approximately 1 day after we decided Kate's name.... and I thought we were 100% on her name.... I came home and Jeremy said "so, I guess that's her name now... no turning back" uhhhhh...... I thought we had agreed on it!!! This outfit hung in her closet for over 2 years and I was SO glad to finally put her in it!β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € @janieandjack  @target  #happy4th  #4thofjuly  #happy4thofjuly  #brightwhitewednesday  #whitesofa  #flag  #america  #americanflag  #toddler  #carolinabeach  #kurebeach  #huntersvillenc  #lkn  #clt  #charlottenc  #charlottencphotographer  #carolinabeachphotographer  #wilmington  #wilmingtonnc  #wilmingtonncphotographer  #F8I  #BHI  #baldheadisland  #OIB 

Living the palm tree life this week.... although being a full time parent is for the birds. Today was meltdown city.... the only thing we could bargain with was a ride in the new bike buggy. We ate dinner at 5 so we could put her to bed early and have some peace and quiet #noshame  Cheers to everyone else who has their kids 24/7 this week (or any time!) I'm having a cold beer in solitude.β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € .β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #carolinabeach  #wilmingtonnc  #parents  #parenting  #momfail  #toddler  #gottoddlered  #beachlife  #livecolorfully  #terribletwos  #carolinabeachboardwalk  #kurebeach  #forthofjuly  #ftfisher  #carolinabeachphotographer  #kurebeachphotographer

BEFORE/AFTER (well... progress!) This week a major milestone happened at the Horton house.... we hung curtains in the living room.... we've only lived here 4 years. Last year I hired @AmandaLouiseInteriors  to help me figure out a game plan for our living room. She provided me great resources and we have been slowly chipping away at her plan. Next on the list... replace end table with a round pedestal table, slipcover our ottoman and paint the walls a very pale teal! You don't see the giant swatch painted on the wall to my right.... or the can of paint that's been sitting on the floor since Christmas... I'll also be repainting the door... but what color??
