Hi Guys! I have been wanting to do a nursery tour for awhile, and since this past weekend it was literally 3 degrees in NYC, I thought perfect time to do indoor pictures.
I love Lucas’s nursery because it is the only completely “done” room in the house in regards to furniture, pictures, etc… One thing I am thinking of adding is more shelves or a mini book case because we love reading to Lucas and he loves to bring us books. Who knew he would know his favorite books at 17 months old? He is too adorable.
When we were planning his nursery I went for a “animals in the sky” feel. It was a montage of a ton of nursery’s I loved online, my inspiration came from Restoration Hardware Kids, Pottery Barn Kids & then different blogger moms. I took a bit of what I liked in each and then combined into my own. Hope you guys enjoy, and below is the list of products.

Did you guys get a lot of snow this weekend? We got over 15 inches of snow here. There was even a travel ban in NYC on Saturday, not like we were going to venture out, but that is how serious it got in NYC.
We watched a lot of movies and a lot of bubble guppies with Lucas and stayed warm. On Sunday we decided to venture to our backyard and play with the snow. Tina, our yellow lab, LOVES the snow!!! She goes crazy and loves to play fetch and tries and find the tennis ball we play with her.
Lucas on the other hand, was not into the snow. He kept ripping off his mittens, but then would cry because his hands were cold and then would cry when we tried to put the mittens back on. I am trying to find a one piece snow suit in his size with attached mittens so we are prepared and hopefully that will work for the next snow fall.

So last year I went through a few snow boots, I got some cheap ones from Kohls but they did not last the winter season at all, I had to throw them out and my Uggs usually never make it to the end of snow season. So I got these super hard core North Face snow boots. We usually have rough winters, and yesterday was my first day using them. They kept my feet so warm and dry, I like them so far. The real test is the end of this season but I was able to walk around easily, keep my feet dry and they are stylish. I was not into having snow boots with fur right now, so thought they went with the current look I was going for.
How did you guys survive the Blizzard? Any snow boots to recommend that you love? Also I am looking into a new pair of stylish sneakers, if you have any recommendations please let me know.

The weekend before Christmas we got into the Christmas spirit and did all Christmas things around New York City. One thing we did was go see the lights in Dyker Heights Brooklyn. We have been seeing the lights at these houses for years now. They go allllll out. One house even had a DJ, most houses have Santas, and over the top lights. One house even had an Elmo and we were able to get a picture with him. We are so happy that Lucas is a bit older now so we can start to take him to these things for him to enjoy.
Happy Holidays!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and is getting ready to celebrate a wonderful New Years. I wanted to share some of our pictures we used for our Holiday cards. This little boy is such an angel and I love his personality so much. Lucas got more toys that this house can hold for Christmas, but we are so lucky he has so many people that love him and want to spoil him.
I am wearing my favorite holiday look in these photos that I shared on my blog a few weeks ago. Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful time. What are your New Years plans? We are going to just stay in and celebrate at home as a little family. Nice & relaxing.

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Sharing this from a few weeks ago when we went to the Queens Zoo. It was so much fun. Lucas loved all the animals, and it was an amazing fall day. I am wearing my favorite J Crew sweater I have been wearing non stop. It has been extra warm here in NY so I haven’t been wearing the sweater that much, but it is supposed to get colder this weekend, so I may be bringing it back out. Is everyone getting ready for the holidays??
This past weekend we celebrated Halloween. We went to our local children’s Halloween parade and it was so much fun. All the shops were giving out candy and there were a ton of kids and parents and everyone was dressed up and it was so stinkin cute!
Lucas and Tina were BOTH lions!! We chose for Lucas to be a lion because he does the cutest “roar” and we always say he is our “little lion”. Except Lucas hated wearing the lion mane, which pretty much made his costume so you can’t really tell in the photos he is a lion. Maybe next year he will be more into the costume. Tina just looks exactly like a lion with the costume on so we make her a lion because it fits her so well.
Once Lucas went to bed we watched the Purge and then the rest of the Mets game. Pretty low key this year but next year I want to walk in the Halloween parade in the city and do an extravagant costume.
This past Saturday we hosted a mini Halloween Party and we painted pumpkins (the clean up is a lot easier painting than carving haha) and then went to a Jack O’ Lantern Blaze.
I am in a huge Betty Crocker / DIY phase lately. So we made all of the food for the Halloween party.
Below are some of our recipes:
- Mummy Dog
- Guacamole with “Brains” dip
- Ghost covered strawberries
- Spider Pizza
Lucas was a lion, I was a leopard, Tina was a lion & James was the safari ranger. We are repeating costumes this Saturday, but I am planning on wearing my hair super curly and I have been watching a ton of YouTube videos for Leopard makeup. Since I cooked this past Saturday I did not have a lot of time between, baby, cleaning house, cooking AND then Halloween makeup. It was the best I could do. Plus Lucas is in a very “I need everything Mommy is holding” mood lately, so when I do makeup he is always wanting me to pick him up or to give him my makeup brushes.
This Saturday we are going to the local Halloween parade and my husband’s nieces are coming by. I am so happy Lucas gets to celebrate this Halloween with his cousins.
Will post a lot better pictures next week, hopefully!!
What are your costumes for Halloween? I kind of want to do the sugar skull makeup, but then I will be totally separate from the rest of the family.
