      Target… sadly almost 8 years ago. My own Mother has been on the hunt ever since. I did find some cute ones at World Market that are fairly similar! Oh and Crate and Barrel as the most adorable OJ glasses right now. SO cute!

    Love this..I stumbled upon your blog a couple weeks ago and have been slightly obsessed with it ever since! You have such a cute fam, great recipes, & attention to detail..I can relate to A LOT of it as I’m also a stay at home mommy w/ 2 littles. I was even thinking about asking what a typical day was like for you! You read my mind :o)

  • Reply Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride April 24, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    What a fun post. Now, I’m curious what my day would like like in photo form. 😉

  • Reply Colleen April 24, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    I’m glad to know my ten month old baby boy isn’t the only baby who likes to eat shoes. Its like he has extra special radar for when one is around and he zips to it and puts it right in his mouth.

  • Reply Shalee April 25, 2013 at 2:18 am

    So cute! Looks like a perfect day to me. Both boys shoes are super cute! Where are they from?!

    • Reply missy April 25, 2013 at 2:36 pm

      High tops are from Gap kids (this past fall)… Beck’s are Zara baby (sold online right now).

  • Reply Allison D April 25, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    I have to tell you– those little shoes are so adorable!! I love how he’s smiling and showing them to you –> my heart melted when I saw that. Where are those little man shoes from?

  • Reply Niccole April 25, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Missy, you make it look so easy. LOVE all the boys’ clothes. I have tried to get my little one an a similar schedule, like the one you posted. Any helpful hints or tricks to get a sleep and eating schedule.

  • Reply Addie April 25, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Honestly I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and for some reason this was my favorite one (which prompted the comment) there is something to take a photo of and be grateful for every hour of the day as a mom and this post helped me remember that. Thanks!

  • Reply Brooke T April 25, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I second the request for the fettuccine recipe! Looks quite yummy…..your posts are always fun and uplifting! thanks for inviting us in

  • Reply Erika April 26, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    Hi!! So sweet!! Thanks for sharing:) where did you get the boys hats from!?

    • Reply missy April 27, 2013 at 12:08 pm

      Gage’s hat is from Zara (this past fall) and Baby’s is a hand-me-down from a dear friend. :)

  • Reply Jax Thayn April 27, 2013 at 2:22 am

    Might be my favorite post to date!

    Is that Cuppy Bunny in stuffed animal picture?

  • Reply Charity April 27, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    Loved this post. I have two little boys too. I was wondering if you have a good cleaning routine. I find that is the hardest part with my little ones is finding the time to clean, not just straighten up.

  • Reply Parker April 28, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    Great photos. This is a great way to remember this time in your life. They get big so quick, my youngest is now 3. These photos will bring a smile and tear to your eye some day.

  • Reply Debbie April 30, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    I would love to have the recipe for the fettuccine…It looks very fresh and delicious…
