Lily’s first airplane ride

Our plane ride from Miami to Portugal was… LONG!

8.5 hours from Miami to Madrid.

What was supposed to be a 4 hour lay over in Madrid turned into 5 hours.

1 hour from Madrid to Lisboa.

14 hours! Ugh.

Lily was really good though.

She had a hard time falling asleep and tossed and turned while she was sleeping but did sleep through more than half the long flight.

The lay over in Madrid was a little tough.

I was carrying Lily (big mistake, next time I will bring a stroller) and after the long flight and having to go through the entire airport to get to customs and then to our connecting gate, my arm was killing me!!

Once we got to chill at our gate, we caught a beautiful sunrise and Lily was so happy to be able to just stretch out and walk around.

She was so exhausted that she fell asleep before we even got onto our connecting flight.

She wouldn’t even wake up to get off the plane.

I had her “indie” outfit in my carry-on bag but because we were both so exhausted, I never changed her.

Either way, both avo Carmo and avo Ricardo were there waiting for us as well as Lily’s biggest fan, prima Ana and Nuno.

It was a happy welcome committee. 🙂

this was my seat when I got on the plane. don’t worry, they brought me a cushion 😉


And we are off!!

Today is the day.

Lily and I are all packed.

She has a suit case, I have a suit case and then there is also a carry-on.

Not too bad.

We got our passports. (my American passport arrived on friday and Lily has had hers for a couple of months)

We will be leaving the house around 2:30pm. Our flight is at 5pm.

We will be arriving in Lisboa at 12:00pm on thursday.

The “indie” look won with many votes over the other two other looks so there will be an “indie Lily” meeting the grandparents in Portugal.

I might not be able to come here for a little while but don’t forget to come by and vote for us. 😉

Wish Will was coming with us…

P.S.- Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!!!! You have until friday.


First impressions

I believe that you can only make a first impression once.

No matter who you are, how old you are.

This of course goes for Lily as well.

Lily will be meeting her avo Carmo and avo Ricardo for the first time on thursday. (the last time avo Carmo saw Lily she was 2 weeks old so it’s really like meeting her all over again)

Not that it matters because her grandparents will love her no matter what she wears but Lily needs to look her best! 😉

I’m torn between 3 looks.

Will you please help?

Which one do you like the most?

Maybe the one with the most votes will be the one she will wear.

Here they are:
