Marlowe’s *first* beach day to be exact. Michelle called me yesterday asking if I’d like to go to the beach with her. Considering: Marlowe has not experienced it yet, I had a lovely a friend to help, and this beautiful weather we’ve been having… of course I said “Yes”. She knows I’ve been itching for it– especially now that I finally have a bathing suit that will fit my breasts. (Goodbye drawer full of smaller sized bathing suits). I’ve been very excited to take Marlowe– mostly for the water aspect, which despite my wishful thinking, was still way too cold this February– I know I can’t complain, I’m just sayin’ 🙂 We went in the later portion of afternoon and the sun was out, but not to bright or hot. One of Michelle’s friends lent us a UV baby tent, but miss lady baby mostly hung out on the beach towel under an umbrella. Michelle and I tried our best to capture some photos, but Marlowe was much more interested in: staring at the sand, staring at the water, and attempting to grab the flower pattern from the blanket (of course). I don’t think I’ve been to the beach in quite a while. I know the last time I even walked to it was last May or so. I really need to keep reminding myself there is a beach 2 miles from my house.
I hope everyone has an exciting and eventful (or amazing and uneventful) weekend planned! I know over here we’ve got a little night outing with friends planned along with Indiafest on Saturday. Nom. This should be a delicious weekend! Happy friday and weekend everyone! 


  1. i love your costume & Marlowe's costume is soooooooooo adorable! Where did you get them? Please do not say Target (i am from SA) 🙁


  2. Thanks guys! Suit is from modcloth <3 I had another blue one just like it (not from modcloth) but my breasts refuse to stay in it. This was is much better fitted 🙂

  3. Omg I've been looking for a cute bathing suit to go with my new post mommy body and I think you've solved my problem! Hope they have it in black.

    So cute though! I can't wait to take Alyson to the beach when it starts warming up.
