sandyalamode Me and my mini me matching in @nickyandstella! And I found the perfect grey tulle skirt from @patternsandpops in Adult size to go with my little lady's skirt. 😀😀 I just love when I can find her clothes in my size! My next project is to find bows for myself that are proportional in size to my head as they are to hers. Kidding, maybe. PC: @shailynnphotography 2h

sandyalamode One question I get asked a lot is "where do you get all of Vivian's clothes"? And to that I say I love supporting small businesses (well some of them are huge)! One shop that has really hit the mark with carrying cute and stylish baby and kids clothes is @nickyandstella! Vivian's head to toe look is from there as well as my matching "I woke up like this tee", because you know, this is what we wear to bed. If you like what you see over @nickyandstella, you can get free shipping for orders $50+ with code "sandyalamode"! And don't forget to check the blog for two separate Mommy + me looks featuring this tee! @liketoknow.it www.liketk.it/1kh77 #liketkit PC: @shailynnphotography 17h

sandyalamode I know I don't post a lot about my threenager... as he is constantly throwing tantrums, not listening to us and making us feel like #parentfails. But he seriously is the cutest little man sometimes! Happy Cinco De Mayo from him to you! #instavideo #pressplay 20h

sandyalamode Had a "blogger business" (actually it was just a lot of fun) lunch with @thelovelyave today! We tried the new @laid_back_poke_shack and it instantly brought me back to my honeymoon in Hawaii where I scoured the islands for poke in grocery stores! Pictured here is half ginger ahi and half spicy ahi - next time I will be adding avocado! Yum!! 1d

sandyalamode My #DIY Instagram Wall with Washi Tape project is up on the blog! I only used @persnicketyprints and @scotchproducts washi tape and some household tools to create it. And then created a sitting area with my lauradavidsondirect.com chairs, @ikeausa side table and @urbanoutfitters rug! Love how it all turned out! 2d

sandyalamode The month of May always holds a special place in my heart because of Mother's Day, our wedding anniversary and the first holiday of the year (Memorial Day) that we get off from work! I've got a special outfit planned to celebrate our 6 year wedding anniversary... and it entails this gorgeous gown by @brit.cameron! If you are in need of a prom dress, cocktail dress, or just want to get dressed up and feel fancy, you should check them out! 3d

sandyalamode The gloomy weather and impending thunderstorms ruined our outdoor plans today. So instead I am staying in and prepping for taking 2 kids to daycare starting tomorrow. I've found that I always need to prep things the day before to maximize time in the mornings. I feel guilty that Vivian won't get the attention she has become accustomed to. I worry that she won't be able to sleep with so many distractions. But another chapter of our lives is about to begin and we'll just have to make it work. On the other hand, Austin couldn't be more excited to have his sister going to daycare with him and we are hopeful it will make him a calmer toddler. #whoarewekidding #thestruggleisreal #wishusluck 3d
