How We Wore It | WHITE

The girls are back!! Our 'How we wore it' series is here for another year!
And if you missed my last post, happy 2018 everyone.

New.
Fresh.
Clean.

WHITE.

That's what came to my mind when we were thinking of our post this month. White is representative of the above words. Although, being a Mother, white is definitely a challenge to wear haha. By the end of the day, it would be more like 'Dirty, Stinky, Ruined' #momlife. I will only pull out the white outfits for special occasions so they don't get ruined! Which is a total bummer because I LOVE white. Majority of our apartment is white and it's my favourite.

So my little Roka is 2 months old, which means, for me, my body is still in post pregnancy form = big and squishy! So flowy shirts are what I gravitate to until I get my butt in gear and lose this baby weight. Going to workout for the first time this week and I'm a little scared for that 'day after' soreness. 

Which (sneaky segway) is one of my New Years Resolutions! And like our theme of WHITE, a new year brings NEW goals. NEW chances. NEW opportunities. NEW perspective. So if you had a bad year, leave it there. If you had a fabulous year, bring it with you and make it better.

Here are a few of my Goals this year:

Get Roka to sleep through the night (this is definitely #1 goal lol)
Lose baby weight
Travel somewhere new
Don't gossip
Control my emotions when the kids do something wrong

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out my friends post's linked at the end of this post! They are FAB.

2017 Memories

TWENTY EIGHTEEN!
I can't believe the new year is upon us already. At the end of the year, I look back and say "man that year went by so fast" but then when I look at pictures from the beginning of the year, I say "man that seems like forever ago". Anyone else have those same feelings?

But it really is so fun just looking in my 'Lowry 2017' album on my laptop and going through memories that we've made over the past 12 months. So being as a blog post about '2017 recaps' seems to be popular, I might as well jump on the same train. So here are some of our awesome memories from this year!

* Visiting Maikal in Cleveland (we were living apart for 4 months). We needed furniture, and our house is kind of difficult to get couches into, so this was our idea. Backup van to house, climb on van, push couch up, lift couch up, bring through patio door (since its wider and right where the living room is). It was a success! And hilarious. And hard.


* We had my whole family there for Thanksgiving!! And the Fall leaves were amazing, so we had to have a little fun in them! We also were staying at my parents house for the 4 months and it was simply amazing. Having my parents there to help me and put us up was so generous and loving and I owe them big! Thanks Mom and Dad for being the best parents ever!


* Obviously, Roka came into our family! And with that I became a mom of THREE. He is an amazing addition to our family and it is so fun seeing him grow and watching the kids get to know him. Stay tuned for a blog post on the first 8 weeks of his life coming soon ;) 


* Maikal had his first Straight Shave. It looked awesome!


* My sisters Rebecca and Chelsie got Engaged! I just happen to be there for Chelsie's proposal, we were snapping a few photo's of them since they don't have any together, and in the middle of it, he whips our this awesome ring case and gets down on one knee! (total surprise, im sure I looked like a crazy person snapping away when he pulled out that ring) and it was one of the coolest and happiest moments to watch! 


* Ben turned FIVE. He started Kindergarten this year and he has learned so much already and I am so excited for him to grow. 


* Maikal and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! 


* We went to California!! It was my first time, Maikal has been a few times. We stayed at our friend's house near LA. Hit up all the beaches (our fav was Laguna). Then road tripped up to San Fran to see Matty Graduate from Dental School! 


* Aurora turned 3! The spiciest and funniest little human that will ever walk this planet. She keeps us on our toes!


* This year was Lowry Christmas so I knew I wasn't going to get to see my Grandma and Aunt Lila. So we went to visit them! 


* Becca got married and I was one of the Maid's of Honour!! I love having Anthony in the family and their wedding was one of the funnest ones I've ever been too! Just a good time with games, friends, food, and a starry sky.

So these were just a few to mention. There have been many good times this year, but these were some awesome moments I will forever remember. Obviously there were some bad parts, but who the crap wants to remember that stuff? Ya you can stay in 2017, smell ya later.
