Tween Girl Fashion Spotlight: Miss Artemiss Apparel + Promo Code

So it's safe to say that McKenzie is no longer our little baby girl! I can't believe she is turning 5 years old this month! Where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday that we were bringing her home with snow falling around us in Anchorage, Alaska.

Today, we are celebrating her getting closer to the big milestone of 5 with the sun shining bright with extra heat to spare here in South Georgia!  As much as I like to think of her as my little baby, it's hard not to notice how tall she has grown within this past year alone. Going from "toddler" sizes to true "girl" size has really shaken me out of my denial. I'm so proud of the sweet young girl she has become but I have to say it's a little sad as I go through her closet setting aside all of her 5T outfits for donation :'(. I know, I know...I'm a little too sappy for my own good, lol!

My mixed emotions did start to look up as I came across the cutest little girl fashion line that a friend of mine sent my way this week called, Miss Artemiss. It's a New Orleans based, high-end apparel line for young girls that is inspired by the magical surroundings of the city and it's unique ties to the cultures of the world.

The concept behind this line offer three whimsical themes: Mystic Story, Fleur De Lis Story & Swamp Story. Each print is hand-painted with beautiful illustrations that celebrate the untamed nature and the charm New Orleans exudes.

I couldn't help but indulge in a little bit of fine apparel for our little girl stepping over that 5 year milestone and decided to add the Bee Tee and Bee Print Tote to her big girl wardrobe. I can't wait to add a little bit more each month from this collection throughout the fall season!

The Packaging is beautifully done and had my daughter jumping up and down excited to see what was inside.

Our Package came with a sweet note from the designer herself and another wonderful gift that my daughter put on right away! 

This sweet bee tattoo was such a sweet touch and an unexpected surprise in our box. Needless to say, she did not want to wash it off.

Even More Exciting! Miss Artemiss is offering 15% off promo code for all new Instagram followers and website subscribers for purchases over $35! So be sure to follow along on IG at @MissArtemiss!


Cactus Theme Birthday Party: Haines Turns Two!

So I am a tad late on posting this sweet little cactus party we put together last minute for our lil man, Haines.  Our precious baby boy turned two on September 11th. This particular week was a little hectic to say the least. My hometown of Houston, Tx  just had a hurricane push through causing much devastation to the homes of friends and family members of mine. Fast forward to this week, we received news that a Cat 5 Hurricane was headed in our direction and would reach our house here in south Georgia as a Cat 3 on Haines's Birthday.   Needless to say my nerves were a little on edge, however I still made it our mission to celebrate our little man. 

Thankfully I ordered these letter balloons ahead of time not sure exactly what our planes would be but I'm so glad I did. A few days prior I began looking around the house to find a way to make what we had laying around work as decoration because plans of a big shindig were out of the question at this point.  I came up with the idea of a little Cactus/fiesta theme using the mini succulent plants I had more that I remember scattered around. So I made a quick call to our local cookie master with my fingers crossed,  that she would be able to throw together a dozen cactus theme cookies. To my surprise she did and they were ready right on time. I purchase a pre-made vanilla cake from our Publix bakery, hung up Haines's name in balloons and set up a little table using succulents that I put inside a few cactus glasses from the Dollar Store, a birthday cake and cookies for display. Viola, our Pre-Hurricane Birthday Party went off without a hitch! You would have never known that we had a pretty scary storm scheduled to touch down the next day.  
It was the perfect distraction for this mama though since I couldn't keep my eyes, worry and fears off of the weather channel! Luckily by the time the storm hit us, it was reduced to a tropical storm and we kept our power the entire time. 

As I look back on these photos, it brings such a sweet memory of us spending time as a family together celebrating Haines and the precious little people that GOD has blessed Ryan and I with. Even in the middle of fear, worry and chaos that was going on during this time, I just know that GOD was here to calm our nerves (well mine mostly) and provide us with a beautiful way to slow down and spend time together as a family while we  celebrated the gift He gave us just two years ago.
