That time we got lost in Rome...

Saturday, August 23, 2014

See those steps? F#*$ those steps. Those are the Spanish Steps that everyone goes nuts over seeing, and we almost walked right past them. And right to the left of them is a Metro station to get off and on the trains. After walking around for four hours sightseeing, we decide to head back to these steps, get on the train, and go to our hotel. We could not find these steps for almost FIVE hours. We couldn't find that stupid train station or those stupid steps anywhere. And once we finally found another Metro station, we could figure out the right train, taking another 2 hours to get to our hotel. I sat on the ground and started crying, and D gave in and got a cab to take us 40 minutes away to our hotel. Well $65 later we finally made it and I cried tears of joy. Needless to say this was a horrible start to our trip, but after that fiasco we had an awesome time! The food was disappointing overall, but I think the 'Italian' food I was hoping for would be in Sicily. Anyone else who made the trek over to Rome feel the same way? Mila loved the gelato and several tourists kept asking to get their pictures taken with her. How awkward, but how flattering?! Definitely a trip we will always remember, and next time we take the Metro we will be better prepared.

Life happened.

Monday, August 18, 2014
I don't know when or how it happened, but the more I had going on in my life, the less I had to write about on this blog.
We have been traveling and Mila has been growing and learning nonstop, and I have been wanting to share it but things that I think are worth writing about don't ever translate well once I start typing. I never wanted to turn into a baby blog with just one topic. I loved being able to write a little bit of everything and coming up with new recipes, fashion posts, and anything else I wanted. But when you have a baby your world just revolves around that all of a sudden and nothing else matters.

Like I could tell you about how Mila has pooped in the bathtub almost every night this week. And not like a poop that I could scoop out, but tiny little pieces that spread all throughout the water and before I can get to them, Mila is trying to catch them in her mouth.
Or how she ate two entire eggs, a cup of spinach, and two slices of ham the other morning and I could have cried I was so proud. Every time she actually EATS and half of it isn't on the floor I am ecstatic.
Or how I switched her bottles to sippy cups and she didn't even act phased one bit. Bottles were gone in one day. How awesome is she?!

These are the type of things I would go to share but then if I went to someone else's blog and saw these stories daily I would look a lot like this

And then just move onto a more exciting blog. Things just aren't as interesting when its not your kid. But after almost a year break and Mila becoming less of a baby and more of a toddler, I feel like I can come back and have the blog I want. Back to travel posts, food, some fashion, and a few toddler poop stories here and there...

Oh, and here is a cute picture of Mila because how can I resist?!

The past few weeks have gone alot like this,

Me: Babe my first mothers day is on May 11th!
Husband: oh, neat.

Me: Dont forget about Mothers Day on Sunday :)
Husband: That's this Sunday?

Me: Mother's Day is in a couple dayyyssssss.
Husband: cool story, bro.

So I totally wasn't expecting anything at all when the weekend came around. Until that sneaky husband of mine told me to pack a bag and headed off to Paris for the day! I can't believe we live a quick 5 hour drive away from one of the most beautiful cities ever. There is so much to do there and we can never seem to fit it all in. Looks like we will have to go back soon ;) !!!

Freshly Picked Review and Giveaway

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

I am beyond excited to get the chance to work with Freshly Picked

Mila has always had issues with things being on her feet. No matter how cold it is, she rips her socks off as soon as I put them on. Her shoes get thrown off as soon as we get into the car. Anytime we go out, I am constantly checking to make sure she has both shoes on and that we didn't lose one. 

That was until we got our first pair of FP moccs. Seriously, the greatest shoes ever. She wears them everyday and hasn't been able to pull them off yet. I can't tell you how much time and worry that saves me. They are also extremely soft and she will wear them around the house with no issues. Our wood floors are slippery and it always scares me when she is trying to stand up on her own, or inch around the furniture, but I feel so much better knowing she wont slip when she has these on.

Ever since I became pregnant, I knew I had to have a pair, but wasn't able to spend the money on them at the time. But I am telling you guys, they are worth every penny. She now has two pairs and once she grows out of those I plan on replacing them for as long as we can. I can't imagine a more comfortable, practical, and adorable little shoe for her to wear. Anytime we go out, we get tons of compliments on them. And with all the color choices they have available now you can get a pair to match any outfit. 

Sizing is super easy. They have a size chart that you will match up to your childs foot measurments. Mila is in a size 3 and she will be able to wear them for the rest of the year. 

To enter to win a pair of your own Freshly Picked Moccs, comment below with the color you would choose if you won! For more entries, you must follow me @whisktangofox on instagram & re-gram the picture above tagging myself & #freshlypickedwtf. The giveaway will end this Saturday, the 10th. And the winner will be announced on Sunday, the 11th.

I have a 9 month old.

Friday, April 4, 2014
How did this even happen.
How did this 9 months go by so fast?!

My tiny little baby is gone, and here I have this amazing little girl.
Mila is clapping, crawling, and constantly trying to stand up.
This week she learned "hands up" and "head down" and is proud to show me both as often as possible.
She loves being outside, Sesame Street, and our dog Monster.

She is the happiest and sweetest baby girl.
She brings a smile to everyone's face that is around her.
This girl is everything.
