Welcome back everyone! It has been so long that I almost forgot how to blog, lol. Anyone else wonder where the pictures and content were when this first posted? I did. Thankfully, I have corrected the post …

I find myself being apologetic for the long absence and at the same time not. That whole sorry not sorry motto can be inserted here , right? Life happened and I am glad that living my life was priority over blogging about it.The break was needed and wonderful but since I have a few fans constantly requesting my return, especially that of my four-year old, I have decided to spend time again in one of my favorite corners of life. So, it is official to say I am back. 

As you see in the photos our oldest daughter, Lyianna, has acquired a new love. Please meet Isla Rose, our American Girl doll. She became a part of our family on Christmas morning. Isla really does everything with us and it brings me so much joy to see Lyianna so happy with her doll. It has also brought us even closer as I even enjoy playing with my own doll that I gifted myself. Lyianna’s excitement in having a Isla to dress up and play with reminds me of that same emotion in hearing I was having a girl. I remember how undescribably joyful it was to know I was going to have a girl, my own real american girl.

Blessings,

“D”

p.s. If you are contemplating jumping on the American Girl wagon I would love to answer any questions you may have. Let me know if you would like to read a post on America Girl Dolls!

Happy Tuesday! In honor of Cinco de Mayo this week I took it back to one of my favorite days while on vacation in San Antonio. The day we bought mariachi sombreros and walked around the city’s Fiesta.

I received a few emails from followers that shared their love of our “Mine Me Mondays” and how it actually brightened their Mondays. These emails really made mine and my daughter’s day. They also asked a some questions so I figured I’d answer them here.

Why do you match your daughter?   Well some may already know my love of photos and some of my favorite photos/memories from childhood are matching with my little sister. Yes, my mother matched us exactly from head to toe for years. I also grew up playing sports and being a cheerleader which was another time of everyone wearing the same thing. I just really have always loved the sense of unity it brought. So when I found out I was having a girl I immediately wanted to do mommy & me outfits for as long as she would allow me. 

How long have you been matching your daughter?   I have been matching with her since she was months old. About 4 years now. I don’t actually remember the exact month or day, sorry!

Do you find matching clothes from a certain store?   No, not really. Every now and then I do happen to be in a store and there just happens to be something in both our sizes so of course I buy them. For example, when shopping with my cousin the other day I found matching Fourth of July outfits for all three of us! For the most part we aren’t wearing the same exact clothes but rather same colors, styles, etc.

Do you plan on matching with your newest daughter too? In the beginning I did not plan on this but my daughter insisted that she match us so we tried and so far it has worked out here and there.  I like to joke that I have been promoted from “twinning” to “trippling”.

If you have granddaughter do you think you will match them? lol. Maybe? I don’t know depends on my daughters and of course my age!

Thank you again for the support and fun questions!
