Tyler is 4!

It's crazy to me that this perfect little man is already 4! But then again, I feel like he's always been a part of our family so how has it only been 4 years?

This year, Tyler got to celebrate his birthday with his family and his friends on two separate days and got to have his own birthday party.

His actual birthday was so busy! Emma had a dance competition in Taunton so we knew we would be spending most of the day there, so bright and early, we were up and on our way to get our favorite donuts from Sunrise Bakery in New Bedford.  We stopped at a playground on the way home and had so much fun since it was just the three of us. We're so lucky that our dance family is so amazing and we had cupcakes with everyone after the girls were done dancing! The dancing didn't end until 7 pmish, so our presents and cake were done late that night! It felt a bit scrambled but he was so happy!

His birthday party almost didn't happen! All he asked for this year was a "playground party", but thanks to the rain in the forecast, we ended up moving and rescheduling to the local bowling alley less than 48 hours before the scheduled party time!

Wonderbowl in New Bedford was absolutely amazing in accommodating us and we had so much fun!
I love seeing my boy with his friends, talking and interacting.  Some days I can't believe he was ever so delayed in his language.

Since his birth 4 years ago, he has overcome so many obstacles with his speech and continues to be the happiest, sweetest boy I know. I am just so happy that I was picked to be his mom. ❤

Spring Shoes from Payless

I love shopping but also have a budget so when it's time to transition from season to season, I look for the best deals. I'm always excited when I find super trendy yet reasonable priced pieces for my wardrobe. Payless Shoes has been killing it this year. My style is very classic and simple, but comfortable and pretty as well.. it's a fun combination, and Payless has put out so many styles that effortless fit into my wardrobe for the warmer months.

Here's a few of my favorites:

The best part is every pair is under $30, and many are on sale right now for half that! I'm so excited that I could update my shoe collection this season without breaking the bank! Which pair is your favorite?


Summer Shoes, wedges, heels, sandals

Hunter for Target Collaboration - This Sunday!

I am ridiculously excited about Target's newest collaboration -- with Hunter! Hunter boots are amazing quality. Emma has a pair of tall pink ones that she absolutely loves but I've never been able to find a pair that fits me just right.

The first pair I bought was way to tight on my calf. With my super large calves, even the wider leg ones didn't fit well, but still I continued to love the simple classic style of the boots.

Looking at the pictures that Target has released I have high hopes for these boots--- they look even wider than the ones I tried before! Plus I've lost some weight so maybe, just maybe I'll finally have a pair of my very own! Did I mention the adult boots are only $40!? The last pair I tried to buy was over $100 so this is HUGE!

I'm also so excited for all the other items being offered at Target.  Backpacks, umbrellas, beach towels, and clothes!

The whole line is hitting Target stores on Sunday April 14th so I'll either be at a dance conference or down the Cape, but I WILL be getting some of these amazing items offline!

Will you be grabbing a pair of boots?

xo, Heather

Tyler is 4!

It's crazy to me that this perfect little man is already 4! But then again, I feel like he's always been a part of our family so how...
