‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the Season!  I did a little me-shopping for the holidays, and picked up this jeweled sweatshirt from StyleMint as well as these adorable burgundy bow smoking slippers from Seychelles.  This outfit was a perfect blend of being polished and dressy enough for the Thanksgiving weekend festivities, but also allowed me to stay comfortable at the same time.  This particular day, my family all came to my parents house to meet our little Nico for the first time.  It went well and our little guy certainly has a lot of people who love him!

I also took advantage of the Starbucks drive-thru while in Maryland.  My neighborhood doesn’t have one, and I haven’t been venturing out of it too often while on maternity leave.  I absolutely swoon over their holiday lattes, and this year was no different.  I tried the Caramel Brulee Latte for the first time, and loved it so much, I got one the following day for the drive back to NY as well.  Yum!

Things have been a little crazy in the Notes household this past weekend.  We’ve been trying to get Nico on a better sleeping pattern (i.e. trying to get him to go to sleep without it taking 2+ hours).  It hasn’t been fun, but after a few short days, I think it’s actually starting to work.  The whole family might be on a track toward good sleep (fingers crossed).  This is just the first of many tough parenting decisions we have had to make.  No one can really explain how hard motherhood can be sometimes.  We are just figuring everything out along the way.  Oh!  We have also come super close to finding a nanny for our little guy!  We have interviewed a lot, and we think we just may have found the one.  Hoping it all works out for the best!

Happy Monday everyone!

XO,

Gina
