Camden || 9 months!

Wow, where the heck have these 9 months gone? Camden turned 9 months on the 20th, so this update is just a week late. Better late than never!

My baby is growing into the most curious, fun loving little ball of energy! He is really starting to come into his own little personality. We know how to make him giggle and that sound is like crack I tell you! We can't get enough!

I didn't write an 8 month update, so I am going to summarize what he's been up to the past few months.

|| Milestones ||

* First nights away from mommy and daddy (TEN while we were in Germany/Austria). He stayed with my mom and dad and he did just great! Mommy was a mess...

* First TWO teeth!! He popped the 2 center teeth on the bottom. I'm pretty sure we are working on the top middles currently. 

* Sits up without support. He loves to sit up now and just scan the room and faces and objects. 

* Starting to army crawl/scoot. Poor baby really wants to crawl, but can't quite figure out the left, right rhythm. He just scoots himself across the floor with both legs at the same time like a frog! It is kind of adorable, but I can tell he gets really frustrated that he can't be more mobile. We are in no rush, so take your time baby!

* Stands with support. Those legs have some power in them! He is starting to stand up with his vtech activity walker and I'm nervous he may start walking with it soon!

* Says "mama" and "dada" constantly. Also, is babbling all the time. So many high pitched shrieks and lots of gibberish from such a little guy. 

* Learned how to clap both his hands and his feet. He actually claps his feet more than his hands and it's the. cutest. thing.

* Went swimming in the baby pool! He loves to splash in the water! I'm hoping to get him to a big kid pool before summer is over.

* Sits in the top part of the shopping cart instead of staying in his carseat. And he is now in the big kid part of his stroller instead of the carseat. 

I'm sure there's more I'm not thinking of....

|| Eating ||

He is now taking 4 - 5 six oz bottles of formula per day.

We are also feeding him 2 - 3 meals of pureed baby food and oatmeal. I've slowly started to feed him little bits of mushable/steamed food and some puffs here and there. We just tried a few yogurt melts and he likes them!

We just got the go ahead from the doc to try more finger foods, dairy (yogurt, cheese) and meats! I'm excited to try new foods with him, but also extremely nervous of the gagging/choking... Any tips mamas?

|| Sleeping ||

We had a little bit of a regression around 8ish months. He started waking up in the middle of the night and would just whine and roll around in his crib for a good hour. I never caved and fed him, but I did go in and try to soothe him back to sleep. It lasted for about a week or so and now we are back to sleeping 11 - 12 hours per night (thank goodness). He goes to bed no later than 7pm and has been waking up anywhere between 6 - 7am. As of recent, he's been waking up closer to 6 am, but then gets tired about an hour after he wakes up and is ready for a nap. 

He still takes 3 naps, each about 40 mins - 1 hr per day. I think this just works best for our schedule, so as long as he is still willing to take the 3rd nap, I won't fight it!

Our normal routine is starting to be a little more flexible these days. I've started to just read his cues more than force him to sleep or eat. I think he is in a transition phase, so I'm trying to let him start to reset his own schedule.

I'm so excited for the fall with my baby! Don't worry, I've already ordered his Halloween costume and it's pretty adorable! Charlie our dog may be involved in the costume as well.

We have so much to look forward to... Football season, Halloween, and best of all his 1st birthday! I can't believe we are starting to plan his birthday party. Time is just moving too quickly. It's true when they say babies don't keep!

We just love you to pieces little Cam man!

Long Sleeve Shirt Dress (for less than $30!)

dress || nude pumps || tassel bracelet (similar) || kate spade watch (similar) || cat eye sunnies || earrings (gift from a friend, but they are from this local shop)

Let me tell you all about my new little secret... It's this site.
The dress in the photos above was less than $23! You heard me correctly! 

I love this shirt dress because it is so easy to wear and flattering. I will say, the sizes run a bit small, so size up if you are unsure. I am wearing a size medium and it is a little tight through the chest and surprisingly shorter than expected on my short self. 

I love a sleeved dress and they are the perfect transition piece from summer to fall. We have a wedding late September and I'm hoping to wear this one or one like it if the weather is still fair. (I also ordered this romper which is adorable and affordable as well!)

Here are a few of my other favorite sleeved dresses (all under $30!):

PS - This was not a sponsored post, I just love the dress!

Weekend Recap

It was a bitter sweet weekend. Poor Cam came down with his first (what I think is a) cold. He has been so stuffy and cranky for the past few days. He's also been really warm and clammy, but hasn't had an extremely high temp yet. A part of me says teething, but another part thinks it's something more. Luckily, we have his 9 month appointment today so maybe we will get some answers!

Needless to say, we didn't plan much for the weekend. It was kind of nice just relaxing at home and not having to rush anywhere. I'm just trying to enjoy these leisurely weekends while they last because we have a busy September.

Here are a few pics I snapped:

|| We did manage to get out of the house and go for a walk at a local park. I think it was good to get him some fresh air! ||

|| Bill put together this new storage unit for Camden's books! We desperately needed more storage in his room. Before those books were spilling out of bins and on the floor... ||

|| We dined al fresco on our patio Saturday night with some Trader Joe's frozen pizza and homemade salads. I gotta say, I don't hate date nights at home. ||

|| Got these products as recommended from some friends. Anyone use these on their babes? I tried the teething tablets and the baby rub and they seemed to help. I'm a little nervous to try the saline mist... ||

Yesterday was spent soaking in baby snuggles and trying to make my poor little guy feel better. He seemed to feel a bit better towards the evening so here's to hoping he's on the mend!

How was your weekend?

The 'Momiform' + 9 mo Postpartum Update

You guys... My baby is 9 months today... 9 months! 
(Camden's 9 month update coming at you next week)

He has officially been outside of my belly longer than he was inside. So crazy!

I wanted to give you all an update on my postpartum body. They do say "it took 9 months to get your body to stretch, so give it 9 months to go back"... or something along those lines. 

I will say that I am happy to report I have lost a total of 42 pounds since having Camden. That is a huge number for this little 5 foot 3 frame! I gained a total of 46 pounds while pregnant with Cam. And it probably would have been more if I made it past 37 weeks. I definitely gave into a lot of temptations while pregnant and used the excuse of "cravings" to make myself feel better. I think I probably gained an extra 10 lbs that my body didn't need to keep my baby healthy. 

However, I do give myself props for losing the weight the old fashioned way... Working out (in the form of running mostly) and watching what I eat. Of course, I still indulge here and there. Hey, being a new mom is a tough job! We have to reward ourselves!

I still have about 5-10 pounds to lose to get myself in that "comfort" zone of weight where I feel comfortable in my clothes. Certain pieces fit a lot differently than they used to. I have to buy a size up in pants and shorts because my hips widened. I also have to buy larger tops because of my chest size. Oh, I am soooo ready to get these boobies lifted and tucked someday! That is the part of my body I am really struggling with. Trust me ladies, be careful what you wish for! 

Last summer it was all about the maxi dresses. I just loved to show off that big 'ol bump in a comfortable maxi. This summer has been all about the comfortable shorts and easy, breezy, cotton, "throw in the washer and dryer" tops. You know, the ones that you don't mind if it gets spit up on (or worse). Shorts are just easier when you are sitting on the floor playing with your babe. A dress is no longer an everyday option.

I have happily traded in my business casual work wear for this new 'momiform' as I like to call it. I'm so happy my new boss does not require a formal dress code. ;)

Here are some of my favorite everyday 'momiform' staples:

Family Room Makeover

This post is long overdue. We've been working on updating our family room ever since Camden was born. I just remember spending so much time in that dark, dreery room in the winter just loathing the brown on brown ugliness and wishing for a lighter, airy, grey and white room. We bought the marble top coffee table at Crate & Barrel as a floor model that was on sale right before Cam was born. I knew I wanted to decorate the rest of the room around that table.

Brace yourself.... Here's the before....

Ugh... I just cringe looking at that brown on brown room. Bill had purchased the couch and loveseat about 4 years ago (and about 2 years before we got married) when he moved into this home to fill the space. The room before was very masculine with dark wood accents.

He knew it was not my favorite room in the house. We ended up hiring painters for the entire house shortly after we got married. The color on the walls before was a hideous buttery/yellow/tan which made things even worse. I was happy to lighted up the room with the new, lighter cream tone (Sherwin Williams - Buff).

The next big purchase was the sectional. We looked at so many furniture stores I thought I was going to go crazy! Bill and I are very picky about furniture. There was a certain look we were going for and it was very difficult to find. I think our style is a mixture of traditional and contemporary. I'd say this couch is more on the contemporary side and is more minimal without looking too minimalistic (straight lines and edges). We found the sectional at Kittles, a furniture store here in Columbus. The floor model of the couch was a darker fabric, so we had to custom order the couch in the light grey. It took 8 weeks for the sectional to arrive, but it was worth the wait!

I struggled with what to put on the walls above the couch, but found these floating shelves at Pottery Barn and decided they were perfect! I still want to update the frames and photos on the shelves after we get our family photos done.

One aspect I absolutely love about our home is the fireplace... It's rounded into the corner of the family room and adds such great warmth (literally and figuratively). There is a part of me that is dying to white wash the brick, but I think I'm going to leave the original brick the way it is. The house was built in the late 60s and the fireplace is original, so I want to keep that character of the home.

Here's the before shot of the fireplace... It was tough figuring out what to hang over the hearth or put on the mantel. I'm still not 100% happy with what's there, but it works for now. I may end up adding a sunburst mirror there instead of the calligraphy art. (Please note baby Cam in his swing... he was maybe a month or 2 here?)

Here's what we have now...

I found these little accent pieces at Hobby Lobby of course. 

The next purchase was this entertainment/console table we randomly found at Home Goods. It was exactly what I was looking for! I felt like I searched every store online and was so glad I didn't spend triple the amount one this piece at PB or somewhere similar. 

I added some fabric baskets on the bottom shelf to store Cam's toys.

And there you have it folks! 

I feel like it takes me forever to really decorate a room. I'd say there's a few pieces here and there I may switch out, but I'm really happy with the results of this room makeover.

Next up is our bedroom! I'm sure I'll have a before and after post ready for you by early next year at this rate... :)

Tasty Tuesday || Skinny Crustless Quiche

I have been trying to prepare healthy meals for the week a head of time. The meal that I always seem to skimp on is breakfast. Don't get me wrong, I love a good savory breakfast of eggs and bacon in the morning, but ain't noboday got time for that. Also, eggs and bacon are not exactly on the healthy train.

Enter the Skinny Crustless Quiche. This quiche you can make at the beginning of the week and eat a slice every morning for breakfast. It lasted me about 4-5 days (even though I could probably eat the entire thing in one sitting...portion control)!

What I like about this recipe is that it's a 'throw everything in a bowl, stir it up and bake it' kinda meal. Reeeeeeeally simple, people. Plus, I just love the combo of the brocoli, ham and sprinkle of cheese. It's a win win WIN!

Here's the recipe (inspired by this one):

| Ingredients |

1 cup lowfat cottage cheese
2 cups liquid egg whites (I actually used real eggs, 8 whites & 2 yolks)
½ cup broccoli, cooked and chopped
½ cup extra lean ham, diced
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper

| Instructions |

Preheat oven to 375º F.
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Spray 9½-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray and pour ingredients in.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until center is set.

Easy peasy!


Weekend Recap

Oh, that time when I posted too many photos of my baby in a baby pool? Yea, that was today...

We had such a fun weekend! It was so nice/sunny/hot out, but perfect weather to break out the baby pool! Cam just loves splashing away in that water. I have a feeling he will be a little fishy and love swimming. 

It was so hot out that I decided to join him. :) 

We also had a great time with Bill's family who were in town for a visit. We grilled shish kabobs and had fresh sweet corn on the cob from their garden. Perfect summer meal! 

Cam even helped his grandpa shuck some corn!

My parents baby sat Cam on Saturday night so Bill and I could have a date night. We went to dinner and were planning on going to see the movie Train Wreck, but ended up talking and enjoying dinner so much that we skipped the movie! 

I felt like I tried on so many outfits, but landed on all black. Boring! But I decided to dress it up with my Kendra Scott necklace

Sunday evening we celebrated my brother's birthday at Bonefish Grill with my family. Camden went with us and he was a ham the entire time and stole the show! We are getting to feel a lot more comfortable with taking him to restaurants now. He even sat in the highchair like a big boy!

I can't believe how fast this summer is flying by. I'm glad we got to enjoy the season this weekend!

Thoughts for Thursday || 20 Questions

I'm jumping on the bandwagon with Annie and some other bloggers recently to answer these 20 questions about myself. I always like to learn more about the bloggers I follow, so I hope you find this to be interesting!

{photo by Jenny Beck Photography, from my bachelorette party recap post here}

A little about me: 
My name is Lindsay and I’m 32 years old living in Columbus, Ohio with my husband Bill, our son Camden (almost 9 months) and our dog, Charlie.

I actually started blogging over 3 years ago with a blog titled “Last Year of Twenty-Something” to document my last year in my twenties. Well, you can guess when I turned 30 I realized if I wanted to continue the blog I should probably change the name. About the time I started this blog (Lovely Life Styling), I tried to start a little side ‘daydream’ career of party planning and styling. I had a few little gigs here and there and even contemplated getting into the competitive world of wedding planning, but landed a pretty good job with my current company and decided that was no longer feasible. I decided to continue LLStyling as a “Lifestyle” blog, sharing about my life, fashion, food, home decor, planning our wedding and now it’s a lot about baby too!

{photo by Together We Click. View all wedding related posts here}

1. Favorite food:  
I’m what I like to call a “closet foodie” so I’m all about trying new things. My go-to meals are always comfort food. I’m your typical Midwestern girl and love my meat and potatoes! But, I love a good fresh salad in the summer too.

2. Flip flops or high heels: 
On any given day, you will find me in flip flops or flats. On a dressy date night or going to a wedding, I will wear heels.

3. Favorite places to shop for yourself: 
Nordstrom, Old Navy, Target, J.Crew Factory, Shopbop (just to name a few)

4. Standard Coffee order: 
Currently loving iced coffee with 1 Splenda and a splash of half and half. In the fall and winter, I’m all about my pumpkin spice or peppermint mocha!

5. Road trip must have snack: 
Chex Mix and Diet Coke.

6. DIY or hire it out? 
I’d love to be better about DIY-ing and saving some money… But, to be honest we are big on hiring out. We even hired a painter for Cam’s nursery, which is tiny…

7. Top 5 TV shows: 
Housewives of (fill in the blank), Bachelor/Bachelorette, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Friends

8. Favorite Book: 
Most recently, Gone Girl. Since Cam, I’ve only been reading baby books! I need to start reading for pleasure again.

9.  Favorite Form of Exercising: 
Running. Currently training for a half marathon in October.

10. How tall are you?
5’3” aka shorty

11. Do you try something new at restaurants or stick to your favorites?
I like trying something new, but have my favorite dishes at a handful of places.

12. One make up item you can't live without:
It’s a tie between under eye concealer (hello mommy dark circles) and mascara.

13.  What's on your nightstand?
A small gold box for my rings and earrings, Moms on Call book, lamp, a small picture frame with one of Cam’s ultra sound photos. At night, my phone and the monitor.

14. What's one thing motherhood has taught you?
Patience! Babies change every day. It’s great to have a routine to keep you sane, but sometimes you have to roll with the punches!

15. Music that reminds you of high school: 
I have to go with Annie on this one and say Dave Matthews Band! 

16. If you could live anywhere in the world besides your current city where would you live?
Probably somewhere in the South, like the Carolinas… But, I really love Columbus and the Midwest!

17. Tell us something about you we might not know: 
My good friend from college and I used to play music for wedding ceremonies. I played acoustic guitar and she plays violin like a pro! I always said she made me sound good, because I was (and still am) an amateur.

18. Websites you read/browse (besides blogs):
Pinterest, On-line shopping sites, facebook.

19. Morning person or Night owl?
I am a night owl by nature, but ever since baby I’ve become more of a morning person.

20. Favorite Breakfast meal:
Good ol’ eggs, bacon and home fries! And lots of coffeeeeeee!

Tag you're it!

Wednesday Wishlist

Thank you all for your comments on yesterday's post. I think I just needed a relaxing day with my baby at home to feel refreshed and inspired (which is exactly what I did yesterday). I think the best inspiration comes from really slowing down and enjoying and appreciating the little things in life. I even had time to whip up a new recipe and take some photos for a post coming next week!

For today, I thought I'd share a little round up of what is on my wishlist currently...

The Tory Burch Private Sale started on Monday... click here to enter the sale. There are some really good deals on cute sandals, flats, jewelry and handbags! 


Real Talk || Priorities

Let's get real here. I really want to be an inspiring blogger. Have posts ready to go weeks in advance about how to organize your life, or dress for success or have the perfect home, baby, life, etc.

The truth is, life is catching up to me. I feel as though I make a to do list a mile high everyday and everyday I complete about 2 of those millions of items. I've spent a lot of nights in front of this computer with tired eyes and a glass of wine straining to find some sort of inspiration to write a compelling post with no photos or content to back it up.

Yes, I know... I sound like such a Debbie Downer! I am in no way complaining about the life I have. I'm here to tell you, I feel extremely (dare I say hashtag) blessed. I have a wonderful husband and baby boy. Those are my priorities at the moment. So, if house chores or blog posts or work emails or make up or blow drying my hair or putting on real clothes or remembering to feed the dog or planning our dinner menu or picking up baby toys (which will eventually get chewed up by our hungry dog) doesn't happen....

At least I know I have a happy baby and hubby. Maybe I could put on a little make up for them every now and then?

If I seem a little absent this week, it's because I'm trying to catch up on life!

In all seriousness... I'm trying to find simple ways to make my life feel more, well, simple. Scheduling out my day is the best way to help me clear my mind of all the "what do I have to do today" clutter. I always try to list my top priorities of the day first. Family comes first. Then, health/diet, then work, then our home, etc etc.

The blog is also on my list of daily priorities, but sometimes gets pushed to the back burner. I really want to refocus my efforts on this creative space and outlet of mine, but I need your help.

If you could be so kind and leave a comment letting me know what type of posts you love to read (ie. baby advice, fashion, home decor, recipes, random lifestyle or posts about my life, etc) and also how you stay updated on my recent posts (ie. twitter, bloglovin, facebook, blogger, etc). I really want to keep this happy space of mine alive and well, but I may need to do a bit of tweaking of my daily schedule in order to fit it in. I definitely want to make sure I am still connecting to my readers (you guys!) as well!

Thanks for following along and sticking with me!

Friday Favorites

1 | These sandals are everything. I decided to splurge on something for myself, which I haven't done in a while. No, these were not discounted during the anniversary sale. Last month was a very busy month for us and I decided to reward myself for getting through it with these sandals that have been on my wishlist for a while now. I'm so glad I bought them. No buyers remorse here. They are so comfy and are now a daily staple in my wardrobe!

2 | The crockpot is my new best friend. I've found it to be so difficult to prepare meals during the week. When Bill gets home from work all we want to do is spend time with Cam as a family. I don't want to spend it preparing a meal. So, last night I made a really stupidly easy crockpot meal. Chicken breasts, red potatoes with cream of mushroom condensed soup, chicken broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I threw everything in the crockpot mid-morning and it was all ready by dinner time. We quickly steamed some fresh green beans to go with it and voilà! Dinner is served! 

In case you want to pin a few recipes yourself, here are 45 easy crockpot recipes.

3 | Why hasn't anyone told me about the Amazon Cloud Drive? Did you know if you have Amazon Prime (which if you don't, you need to sign up now! It is awesome.) you get free photo storage in their cloud? AND there is an app you can download to transfer photos right from your phone?! This is what I will be working on this weekend. I am in desparate need of organizing all my (millions of) photos. 

4 | Favorite links from this week:

If Disney Princes came to life... when you wish upon a HUNK!

Attention all preggos and new moms: You will want all these things.

Working from home as a new mom has its pros and cons. I am definitely realizing how lucky I have it. This post hit the nail on the head. I also relate to this post... A LOT!

5 | Lastly, this little video has been viewed by myself about 1.5 million times this week... My baby is growing up way too fast! {Cue the cry face emoji}

Happy weekend, friends!

Traveling to Europe: What to Pack

I'm still planning on posting a recap of each city we visited on our 10 day trip to Germany and Austria. There is so much I want to share that it has taken me a bit longer to write those posts than expected. I don't want to leave anything out! In the meantime, I thought I would post a little travel tip for those of you starting to plan a trip overseas.

I learned a lot from our trip last month regarding what to pack. This is geared more towards a longer trip that is focused on sightseeing. I knew that I needed to bring some clothes and shoes that were light weight and easy to wear since we would be doing a lot of walking and repacking and switching hotels every few days. The weight limit for a checked bag on the airline we used was 50 lbs. However, the travel company we used recommended no more than 30 lbs per bag in order to not weigh down the tour bus.

I felt as though I packed pretty well for the week. There were a few items I ended up not really needing (like 8 pairs of sandals. I only used about 3). There were also a few items I wish I would have packed that would have come in handy. Here's my short list of what to pack for a trip to Europe:

Obviously, you are going to want to take a lot (if you're like me, a million) photos of scenery, landmarks and food. You may also want to take a few snaps of yourself with your travel buddies. The selfie stick really came in handy for us. Best $12 I ever spent!

The Tide Stick was a life saver for me after I spilled a bit of coffee on one of my white shirts. Yes, it actually got the stain out! I had to wet the shirt a bit and let it dry, but it worked and I was able to continue wearing it. Those few clothes you bring become precious!

I wish I would have brought this laundry bag along with us. After walking around all day, especially in the summer, your clothes may start to feel a bit damp. It would have been nice to have a nylon bag like this one to throw dirty clothes in and to keep the smell out of the clean clothes.

The neck pillow is a must on a long flight. Ours was 10 hours from Houston to Munich. I was able to sleep about half of the flight and I attribute that to this pillow!

One thing that is very important is making sure to bring along enough plug adapters. You may have to do some research if you are planning to bring a hairdryer (which I don't recommend. If you are staying in hotels, they usually provide them) or other hair electronics to see if you need a voltage converter. This one that one of our travel mates brought has all the bells and whistles you will need. We got by with just using a small one, but we had to take turns charging our phones. If you plan to bring multiple phones and electronics I would recommend this multiple plug adapter.

Earbuds are a must on the flight, unless you want to use the ones they provide on the plane (which are pretty low quality). What's nice about international flights is that there is typically a screen for each seat and lots of options on TV shows and movies.

If you are hoping to do a lot of sightseeing, you will want to bring a comfortable pair of sandals. I actually got away with wearing my Old Navy flip flops most days, but I wish I would have brought a better pair like these.

One thing that we didn't think about was bringing an aluminum water bottle. It would have been nice to have something to fill up before each day instead of trying to find a vendor to buy bottles of water.

Sunglasses are a must. It's also sunny in Europe...

I used my Kate Spade crossbody pretty much every day. It is small enough and light enough that it was not bothersome to wear around all day while sight seeing.

I used a tote bag for my carry on, but it would have been nice to have one that zipped and had a shoulder strap (like this one) just for easier transportation.

Some honorable mentions: a light weight weather proof jacket (it did rain a little one day), tennis shoes for longer hikes/walks, dry shampoo and sunscreen.

Things that I ended up not needing: my hair dryer (all the hotels provided one), heavier coat (it was hot the entire time) and heels (maybe just bring a dressier pair of sandals for a nice dinner).

For those of you planning to travel to Europe soon, I hope this was helpful!

Weekend Recap

What a fun weekend it was! Saturday I co-hosted a shower for one of my good friends at my house and everything was so adorable! A very creative and crafty friend of mine made all the decor for the shower so all I had to do was set it up! I did help come up with the ideas for the finger foods and made most of it as well. The theme was vintage story books and I think it was pulled together quite nicely! Here are a few pics I took of the food and decor...

One of my favorite details was the food labels my friend made with book titles that went along with the menu... 

Definitely a Pinterest worthy affair!


On Sunday, Cam and I joined my parents and some extended family members at the Columbus zoo. This was Cam's 3rd trip to the zoo this summer. He is becoming a pro! He loves watching the animals!

I still can't believe it's August already! Only a few more weeks to really enjoy summer... I better get working on completing my Summer Bucket List!

How was your weekend?
