Happy happy happy Monday!
This post has a whole lot of randomness in there for your Monday (keep reading…there’s another giveaway!). Over the weekend, we celebrated Kensington and my mom’s birthdays a little early. My mom’s birthday is September 12 and Kensngton’s is September 15…and randomly, my family has a lot of trips planned for the month of September, so we decided to celebrate early so that everyone could be there. We let Kensington pick the restaurant in Dallas and she said she wanted pasta from Maggiano’s…so, off we all went!
A picture with my (almost) birthday girl. I swear, she was a baby like yesterday.
Someone else wanted in the picture too. This kid cracks me up. #itsneverdullwithashbyaround
Trying to take a picture of all three kids…
…is not easy!
This guy :).
Ashby loves her some Samuel Thomas!
A selfie with my sista!
Thank you Sean and Catherine for bringing the entertainment to the party! #alltheloveforsamuel #imsurehestiredofusinhisface
My mom (the other birthday girl!) and my grandmother.
We ate dinner, we opened presents and we had cake. It was the perfect early birthday celebration for sweet Kensington and my mama.
Oh to be eight :).
We had the best time celebrating! Now, everyone can go off on their trips with the party behind them.
Kensington has a little friend party coming up, so as she’s pointed out…we’ll be celebrating the whole month long. #kidgoals

We are celebrating the arrival of fall with Nordstrom and I showed you last week a few of my favorite fall things like…
#1: Basic Cami (in a whole slew of colors! I wear these under EVERYTHING!)
#2: Lush Top (that doesn’t wrinkle and again, it comes in a bunch of colors and is currently 40% off!)
#4: Booties (in 5 colors! Love them so much! I bought the burgundy ones.)
Okay, so you know that dress I keep wearing…
And then here are a few other things that always take me into fall…
A plaid scarf (that is light enough so I don’t get hot but looks like fall)…and I found this cute fall finds too (just scroll and click!)…
