Poncho love

Don’t you just love a good poncho? I know I do!

We were in the mountains of West Virginia far from any Target when the Missoni for Target madness happened.

Auntie K however was in Miami and was one of the people in line early in the morning and didn’t know what she had gotten herself into once those doors opened. lol

As always, she thought of Lily and grabbed her one of the cutest ponchos I have ever seen.

Thanks auntie K for Lily’s first poncho! (Missoni no less)

Cousins galore… small style

Yesterday Lily was reunited with her cousins Sofia, Sebastiao, Luis and Kiko at my tia Tete’s house.

These are of course her second cousins or shall I say first cousins once removed? I always get confused how that goes.

Anyway, Sofia and Sebastiao are my first cousin Lena’s kids.

Luis and Kiko are my aunt’s kids.

We also met Constanca and Salvador (not pictured) for the first time who are my cousin Ze Maria’s kids. (I had not seen Ze Maria since I was a little girl…)

There were some other cousins missing and we wished they had been there but, the ones who were there get along great!

Elmo!… small style

Although Elmo rode in the car with Lily from Miami to West Virginia and he hung out for a few days in the library/play room when we first got here, he had been forgotten about in Lily’s crib.

Until last week that is.

Out of nowhere Lily looked at me and said “Elmo?”.

We went to grab him from the crib, she put him in a doll’s stroller cousin Adelaide left behind and wheeled him outside to meet Lola.

It’s nice to see that even though Lily is surrounded by new friends, she doesn’t forget her old ones. 😉

West Virginia… small style

The weather here in west Virginia has been great!

It’s chilly in the morning and at night and in the 70’s during the day.

Lily has been comfortably wearing light weight long sleeved shirts and closed toe shoes.

Here she is in the library/play room and outside playing with two of her favorite dogs, Lola and Sophie.

Dizzy Frenchy style

In case you are wondering about the title of this post, it’s “Dizzy” because Lily loves to spin herself dizzy and it’s “Frenchy” because I think she looks quite French in her tee and culottes.

We are in South Carolina heading to the mountains of West Virginia so stay tuned for some West Virginia small style next week. 🙂

And we are off!

We were supposed to leave tomorrow night but, since Will ended up having the day off today (thank you Jason) we will be hitting the road tonight.

This morning we went to the beach for a last dip in the ocean and I wish I could say it was great but 30 minutes after getting there, the water was full of fish and jelly fish.

I got lightly stung again, not fun but, at least Lily didn’t.

We did however have a great lunch with our friends Zura and Lien and fun at babyGap where I picked up some much needed 99c socks for Lily and the girls put on a show modeling the latest coats and hats.

We will be on the road until friday night and the internet in WV is not the greatest so, if you don’t see a new post on here or don’t hear from me, don’t you worry.

And now… I have to pack. See you all soon!

Birds of a feather, flock together

After lounging at home for a while, yesterday late afternoon even though it was raining, we decided to go for a drive to Coconut Grove and maybe eat somewhere we had never been.

I got lily dressed first and after I dressed myself, I realized that I dressed myself like her.

Or did I dress her like me?

Either way, we had the same look going on.

Before heading out, I asked Will to take our picture and while he was doing so, I noticed he had birds on his belt.

“Birds of a feather, flock together” I thought to myself.

The three of us seemed to all have something that went with the other. 🙂

With Yelp’s help (do you guys ever use it? we love it!), we ended up eating at the Peacock Garden Cafe. (perfect but not planned for our bird theme).

It was lovely to be able to sit outside under a big awning looking and listening to the rain and thunderstorms.

Once it cleared up, a rainbow appeared and the sky looked the most beautiful I have seen it in a while.

Hope you all had a great saturday as well.
