BlogOween: Candy Corn Cupcakes

Posted by Lily Kay at 5:51 PM 0 comments

With Halloween right around the corner (which I seriously dont know how that happened) I thought it would be fun to do a lot more Halloween themed type blog posts. Of course I need to give it a fun name as well...BlogOween it is. And what better way to kick this off than with cupcakes...yum.

Unlike the first photo I think I might actually be able to pull this one off. Simple yet festive and cute.

Hmmm...I may be able to pull this one off...just need some good ole food coloring.

Okay, this has got to be the Over Achievement Candy Corn Cupcake...at least that is what I would call it. This seriously is a candy corn covered strawberry on top of a Halloween cupcake...whew....

Experimenting With Light...

Posted by Lily Kay at 9:00 PM 0 comments
Some might find stray rays of light in their photos to be cumbersome but I find them soothing. I love experimenting around with natural sunlight and how it hits objects in photos from different directions.


The rays of a setting sun bring a certain dimension to photos that I find relaxing and captivating.
I like to think that as the sun sets its rays are assuring us that it will indeed be back tomorrow... bright and full of light once more.

Insta-Haul: Baby Gap

Posted by Lily Kay at 3:34 PM 0 comments


Baby Gap was having a pretty good sale this past weekend. I got these items for 40% off. I got two pairs of their soft leggings in some festive red and white colors. I love how the plain red ones are accentuated with sweet ankle ruffles. The top was too sweet to pass up and at 40% off it was a keeper. Its like a ruffled peplum top. The fabrics are super soft. Baby Gap is always having amazing sales going on ( and Gap Kids ) so check them out if you have a store near you or check them out online.

RIP Matt Turner

Photo from The Turner Channel

Tonight my heart feels for a fellow blogger Julee Turner from The Turner Channel. Her husband passed away yesterday in a vehicle accident. I have been following her blog for quite some time now so I feel as if I know her even though I do not. They have a precious daughter named Preslee. Please keep this family in your hearts and prayers. I cannot imagine the pain they must be feeling. It is a stark reminder of the fragility of life. Enjoy every day and keep the ones you love close to you as you never know what life may bring.

I have recently embraced my inner vlogger and put up multiple vloggings this week. =) I have accepted that 1. Yes I love doing videos/vlogs for Youtube.
2. Who cares if they look perfect or not?
I am having fun with it. Do you vlog or love to watch vlogs?

Take My Hand...

Posted by Lily Kay at 8:43 PM 0 comments
Baby Z loves to tell me "hand hand hand". Even though she says it in the most bossy way ever, its still super sweet. She stretches out that chubby little arm..."hand hand hand".



If I don't give her my hand fast enough she will come running over and demand it...immediately...no patience.  She wants to hold my hand for confidence, support and i'd like to think because she just loves me.
As a mom I hope she always wants to take my hand for confidence, support and because she loves me.

A Pinterest Story: Ode to the Pumpkin

Posted by Lily Kay at 8:37 PM 0 comments
 October is the spotlight month for pumpkins. Any other time of the year and they are just a large orange-y fleshed fruit with an unsightly rind. But 3 months before Christmas, the Pumpkin takes on a whole new meaning. They shine, glisten, sparkle, spook and conjure up the imagination of adults and children alike. Rows upon rows of pumpkins in every shape and size take a hold of October and claim it their time to dress up and take charge.
 The spray painted pumpkins (doubles as a house marker).
 The Initials (glowing).
 The Art Deco.
 The Glam.
 The Bedazzled and Bejeweled.
The Preppy.
The Apartment Complex.
The Sparkles (doubles as a centerpiece).

 And last but certainly not least the Au Naturale.

So their it was...the Ode to the Pumpkin. Thank you Pinterest for allowing the pumpkin its rightful spotlight (all pictures taken from Pinterest).

Insta Haul: Janie & Jack

Posted by Lily Kay at 5:01 PM 0 comments

I cannot resist a sale at Janie & Jack. This store is a weakness of mine. I took advantage of their recent Friends and Family sale this past weekend. Here is a sneak peak of some of the adorable items I picked up for Baby Z. 
1. A mint floral peplum blouse. This will look so sweet with a pair of leggings and in the cooler weather (if we ever get any here) I can easily throw a cardigan or jacket over it.
2. A thick brown corduroy knicker pant, that will be awesome with some cream colored tights underneath since they are cropped. You cant see in this pic but they have some embroidered rose detailing at the cuffs.
3. A sweet lavender sweater top. Its light weight but heavy with cuteness.
4. A white pair of tights with little black polka dots.

I might do a Janie & Jack haul sometime this week.

Weekend Wanderings

Posted by Lily Kay at 3:52 PM 0 comments

Having a cast on a 16 month old is no easy task...not for her or for me. Our days involve lots of making messes out of her toy collection and reading lots of lots of books. Of course their is always room for some silliness as well.


Never underestimate the will power of a little one. She refuses to sit or merely crawl...she wants to rock that cast no matter what.


Touching her nose as instructed by the Happy and You Know It song that was playing from the Iphone on the floor.

Can't wait till our weekends once again involve park trips, running in grass, visiting zoos and no scratchy heavy cast to lug around.

The Little Green Cast...

Posted by Lily Kay at 12:14 PM 0 comments
Okay so it's not such a little thing. It's actually quite large and heavy and while we're at it it's quite annoying too. But it's there to protect her little leg while it heals a hairline fracture on her lower leg. The docs called it a tibia... Mommy calls it heartbreak in green waterproof plaster. Full story to follow.

BEDA Day 5: Baby OOTD Sweet & Silver

Posted by Lily Kay at 4:01 PM 0 comments
I am a sucker for Toms on little ones chubby feet. Baby Z is sporting a sparkly silver pair we picked up the other day. We already own it in a smaller size in sparkly black and LOVE them so much! They fit her feet well, she can walk in them easily and most importantly they are just too dang cute. Every where we go people always stop us and ohhhh and awwwe over her Toms.
She is wearing a floral swing top from Janie and Jack scored on clearance and some light blue leggings from a United Colors of Benetton that we stopped at while in France earlier in the year.

Sweet gumballs, sparkly Toms and baby clothes on clearance. Ah the little things in life. =)

BEDA Day 4: Better Late Than Never

Disney was a blast! It was super hot in Anaheim but we managed to get by courtesy of the likes of Mickey, Bugslife rides and pure Disney magic. BEDA and VEDA were harmed in the process but I will be playing catch up. Besides its better late than never.:

BEDA Day 2: Disney Bound

Posted by Lily Kay at 10:36 PM 0 comments
Packing up the car and heading out. Baby Z has a tight hold on her Baby Pooh Bear.
Today we left early on in the day for DisneyLand. It is Baby Z's first time and I was quite excited to be on our way to take her. It was also her first real long road trip as we had an almost 8 hour drive including stops.
Making a pit stop so she could stretch her legs a bit! She loved it! She did surprisingly well in the car. We brought her favorite stuffed animals, books and snacks. That in combination with pit stops and naps kept her quite happy and thus me and daddy quite sane.
We reached our hotel! Squint your eyes and you can see the Matterhorn in the background. 
End of a long traveling day. Looking forward to taking Baby Z into Disneyland tomorrow after getting some Z's tonight.

My Favorite Kind of Sparkle...

Posted by Lily Kay at 4:41 PM 0 comments

I was poking around on Pinterest this afternoon while sitting tiredly at my work desk and found this picture. You know how sometimes a certain photo will just resonate with you? Thats this photo for me. I love the sparkle that the ocean gives off when you look at it in the right sunlight. Its my favorite kind of sparkle.

Come poke around with me on Pinterest..

XoXo ~ Lily
