Fleece swing jacket

Little Peanut’s closet is full of adorable sleeveless a-line dresses that haven’t been worn since winter hit. After seeing this Cropped Fleece Jacket from Shwin&Shwin I knew I found a solution to our problem! While hers was military inspired mine took on more of a vintage swing jacket look (probably due to my lazy “lets just eyeball the measurements and cutting” technique!) I still love how it turned out and >> Continue reading

i heart faces: Pink

This week’s theme is pink in celebration of Breast Cancer month. One of my favorite photos of the Little Peanut. We were getting ready for Lunar New Year at our Vietnamese church. She’s wearing the traditional Vietnamese ao dai (dress) and khan dong (hat). My first attempt at selective coloring. I tried to no avail to get the pink to be softer because I think the bright pink has a >> Continue reading

I ♥ Faces: Smirk

I live with the queen of snarky. Just yesterday as we were leaving the library I asked Little Peanut if she wanted to hold my hand out to the car. She promptly replied, “NO! I’ll walk by myself!” It started at a very young age too. She was about 4 months when I took this. We call this photo “The Stewie.” It was as if she knew what her shirt >> Continue reading

Ok, so maybe it wasn’t in there… but everyone knows parents love to brag about their kids. And well, since this is my blog…. We were in the midst of a little photo shoot of one of >> Continue reading

I ♥ Faces: Got to wear shades

As you know we’ve had family in town the last couple of weeks and have been all over the Twin Cities showing them around. Last week we stopped by the Como Zoo for the kids. Our first stop was into the Blooming Butterflies exhibit. If you’ve never been to one of these it’s an amazing experiance. Butterflies from around the world fly freely in an enclosed tropical garden. If you’re >> Continue reading

I ♥ Faces: Over my head

Just this past weekend the Little Peanut discovered that she too can wear daddy’s baseball cap. She doesn’t just wear it any way though. She has to wear it backwards! She’ll put it on say “hat” and then carry on with whatever activity she was doing… reading, playing with the iPad or her train set. It’s so adorable and I’m so happy I was able to get some photos while >> Continue reading

It’s all about babies at i heart faces this week. I’m so excited to see all the entries because who can resist little baby, (especially newborn) photos? There are already tons of amazing photos that had me swooning. Go now if you haven’t checked them out yet! This is one of my all time favorites of our Little Peanut. She was only a few hours old and hadn’t even had >> Continue reading
