How We Wore It | Black On Black

And we're back! In case you haven't noticed, we are trying to make this Outfit Series a monthly thing and it's so fun!

This month we grabbed our inspiration from the photo below of the amazing blogger, Cara Loren.
All black is something I feel will never go out of style. It's so classy, yet super hardcore at the same time haha




I made the horrible mistake in wearing a hat for my outfit. Lethbridge + Hats = Ya heck no.
Plus ya know, my enormous head of hair can't seem to make hats sit correctly. Oh well. I still love hats and am determined to find one that will sit on top of my curly mane!

You guys, spring is here and I can't even contain myself. Some days I am able to go outdoors in just a t-shirt and I get all giddy inside thinking of the warm weather that is on its way! Which means summer festivities are almost here!! We live for summer.



Ps thank you Hannah Paige Photography for snapping these for me!

Ben is 4

How did this happen??? Weren't you just a baby running on the beaches of Hawaii like Yesterday!??

As much as I wish time would slow down, it's just as fun seeing kids grow. Seeing all the different stages and new learning experiences are awesome. Obviously every child is different and each kid grows and learns at his/her own way/speed so I'm trying not to let it bother my that Ben has speech issues and is behind on social behaviours. He's happy, so I'm happy :) I just need to learn some patience!!

For his Birthday we took him to do his most favourite activity, swimming! You will never see a more happy Benjamin than when he is around water. On Sunday we took him to the Lowry's and had cake and sang Happy Birthday with his Lowry cousins. Families are the best!

We recently went up to Drayton Valley and my awesome Mom decided to treat the kids to Galaxy Land! Oh my word my kids were in heaven that day. Grandma's are the bomb! She then had cake and we sang Happy Birthday once more with the Curry side. He felt so special!

So, here are some updates on Ben and what he's been up to!

- First of all, I don't think I've ever made it public or announced it anywhere, since ya know, I am literally THE WORST at blogging, but Ben FINALLY became potty Trained on Sept 1, 2015. (One of the only good things that actually happened that year). You guys........Halle-frickin-lujah. At 3.5 years old my first born became potty trained!!!! Why he couldn't seem to figure it out until then is beyond me. Maybe his speech issues came into play. Because believe me, we tried our best! But now he's all good and it is sooo wonderful! He still needs a diaper at night, but I'm sure that will come and Im not too worried about that one.

- Also in Sept, he began pre-school!!! I was recommended by his speech therapist to put him in school, which they have speech classes everyday for him, and so I decided to just jump in. He has come leaps and bounds since sept with him growing, physically, socially, verbally, emotionally. Just the other day, he said "I love you" to Maikal for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER without being told to say it. A tear or two may have trickled down my cheek. You have no idea how much I just want him to say "I love you Mom" to me. It's tough!

- We took him to the Dr the other day for a check up and he is right on the line of Average in everything. But I still think he will become a giant like his big uncle Cody.

- His hair is getting darker and darker or more straight then ever. I miss those blonde locks! Maybe he will lighten up in the summer from the sunlight. We are still experimenting on different hairstyles on him haha. This one is pretty cute I guess!

- He loves to both bug, and play with his little sis Aurora. I'm sure they will get along better one day haha.

- Ben is one of the most compassionate little boys ever. If anyone is hurt or crying, he will be the first one by your side to give you comfort. He has such a gentle heart.

- His favourite shows are Paw Patrol and Little Einstein's.

- He is very outdoorsy and loves animals and playing at the park.

I know this post is getting kind of long. But just to end it, I just want to say how much I love this kid. He can drive me pretty crazy sometimes, and I worry about him all the time. But I love him no matter what. Love my Baby Boy Ben! happy 4th Birthday ( Belated ).
