Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

May 4

Two Teenagers. Two. In my house. OH MY GOODNESS!! My stepsons (although I really hate calling them that…they are MINE, even though I didn’t carry them or give birth to them!!) share a birthday, and today was it! The oldest is now 16, and the younger is 13. I’ve had the privilege of being their mom for the past 5 years, and oh my how the time has flown!!!!! In 23 days my oldest takes his driving test!!! I have to say, today was probably their best birthday. It started off a little rough (it’s also the anniversary of their mother’s death, so it is a bit of a bittersweet day!), but ended very VERY well. 

I made cakes: (mint chocolate cake with mint chip ice cream & my buttercream. All homemade by me!)


Wrapped presents and bought a ton of balloons: 


This was one dress I wore today (I ended up changing, but didn’t snap a photo)


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade Little Girls’ Ladybug Cardigan
  2. Dress: Kate Spade Hope Dress
  3. Belt: Kate Spade
  4. Shoes: Jimmy Choo, strassed in Light Siam.

And with that, I put today to rest. Many highs and lows, it’s just been a strange time all around, lots of change in the wind!

Until next time,

  1. Oh my goodness. Those poor babies… How lucky are they to have you though?! My stepdad never refers to me like that either – so you just go ahead and own whatever works for your family – and keep being amazing to those two sweet boys!
