Datenight | Giving a Dress Shirt the Cold Shoulder

Happy Friday Friends! Here is a simple look I wore to dinner with the husband last Tuesday. These days, we end up going out on a weekday rather then a weekend. It's easier to get the girls a sitter on a weeknight. We sat in bar at The Sea by Alexander's Steakhouse and ordered all of our favorite appetizers. Yummy! A Little funny but the entire bar was filled with men. All business. To be honest I felt like I stumbled on the set of Silicon Valley....which happens quite a bit in the Bay Area!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress!! I have worn this eye catching dress for two different date nights so far and I would love to wear it for day with black ballet flats....brunch perhaps? 

The first date night I wore this ultra feminine dress was to one of our favorite Italian restaurants Osteria Toscana in Palo Alto.  Order the beef carpaccio.  It's the best I have ever had, and yes, I have been to Italy:)

I wore this entire look last Wednesday. We started our date meeting a few friends at Jazz in the Plaz in beautiful down town Los Gatos.  Then the two of us went to Nick's Next Door for dinner. Nick's is probably one of the best spots to dine in Los Gatos. It's not only our favorite so be sure to make reservation. I would say call at least a week in advance.  We are never disappointed! I have to add the best part of the night was that the girls slept through the night!! Yay!!! I just had to share this wonderful news. We are so proud of Margot and Sophie. Hopefully this is a permanent thing and just not for that one night....fingers crossed! 



Motherhood at Seven Months

Outfits Cat and Jack | Shoes Starry Knight Design on Etsy

Seven months of motherhood has flown by, yet I can’t remember the days when I did not have to worry about my little bugs. My entire life, I knew I wanted to be a mother, and here I am doing it!  Somedays it hits me: “Oh my god. I am a mom. These two beautiful girls are mine.” 

Days with any new baby can be a blur, but with twins things are extra blurry.  It is so easy to think, “what’s next” and getting caught up in the “task” of motherhood. A bottle. A nap. A walk. A diaper change. Repeat. I have been trying really hard to hold on to the moment and value where the girls are at today. Live in the moment. It sounds like such a cliche but, god, it’s especially true when kids are concerned. You don’t get this time back.

Being a mommy to identical twins, I feel it’s very important to celebrate their differences and at the same time foster their very special unique twin bond and relationship. I am absolutely loving watching the girls develop their own little personalities.

Margot loves to smile with her cute little tongue out. She is an incredibly curious little girl and needs to reach out and touch everything including mine and her daddy’s face. Margot loves meeting new people and is quick to give a smile. She can’t stop rolling over but does not yet understand why she needs to be on her tummy so she becomes frustrated through out the day. I am sure she will figure out soon enough this position will lead to crawling and exploring which our Margot will love.  She loves when I give her kisses on her cheeks and belly. Margot has a hard time falling asleep but once she is out she is out!

Sophie can’t stop moving. She kicks all day long. We call her our little River Dancer! All I have to say is kick kick or wiggle wiggle and she starts moving. At home she is VERY out going but out and about she holds back the smiles a little and is more of a observer. She love books and music. When you talk to her she really listens. Sophie loves to cuddle and falls asleep pretty easily but wakes easy.

Both girls love their mommy and hang on every word. Who knew I was so interesting? We giggle all day. I am loving that, for the moment, I can be the center of their world. I know one day that this always won’t be the case so I am living in the moment and loving every minute of it. I love being their mother with my whole being. It is the hardest, most exhausting thing I have very done, but I would not trade a minute of it for the world. Seven months…where has the time gone? 

These super cute outfits are available at Target! Really? How cute are the girl's chucky monkey thighs in those knee high sock which are included in the set?! Sooooo CUTE!! I could eat them up! The mocs are available from a wonderful shop on Etsy.They come is lots of colors. I love supporting small business owners and they are exteamly high quality at a very reasonable price point...which is key when you are buying everything times two!

The little white dress. It's crisp, clean and whispers summer much like a cool breeze on a warm day. 
I have built quite the collection of whites dresses this year. A little nuts considering I have 6 month old twins. What can I say? I like to live dangerously. I love wearing a LWD with a neutral shoe and bag keeping the look soft.  Unfortunately the one I am wear, above, is no longer available but found a few you will love below!
