Last fall LP wasn't really walking yet, so while I put cute little jeans and cargo pants on him from time to time, he mostly still lived in stretchy little pants and onesies.  This year though, he's a little boy- running around, getting into things, playing outside.  And I've caught the back-to-school shopping bug pretty badly!  I'm trying to restrain from shopping too much for LP, but haven't been able to resist adding a few cute things to his fall wardrobe (all purchased on sale, as I'm now the cheapest person on the planet when it comes to buying clothing and consider Old Navy a splurge.....)

LP's Fall Wardrobe

LP's Fall Wardrobe by emskyrooney on

A few of these things Little Paul already has- he's got the little yellow raincoat except in a grassy green.  And the little blue fleecy jacket he has in red from last year and it still fits this year (yay!).  We already had a yellow polo shirt and a cute little mock-neck sweater that was passed down from a friend's very dapper son (our sweater is a mossy green).  We have a few pairs of jeans and some khakis as well.  

So I've basically been picking up some tops.  I snagged a cute grey zip-up hoodie sweater and a red striped top at Old Navy.  Then today, with a gift card burning a hole in my pocket, I snagged the adorable green top, blue camo top, and elephant shirt at Gap Kids (LP LOVES elephants so I couldn't resist - and don't worry, I used some of the gift card on myself as well!).  We picked up a pair of brown sneaker/shoes for him over the weekend for his play shoes and my mom bought him the most adorable pair of brown suede Pediped shoes for nicer occasions (those of you who haven't tried the Pedipeds- they seriously rock.  They're adorable, last really well, and are really good for little feet).

I'm guessing his cute brown corduroy hat from last year won't fit anymore so I'm on the lookout for a cute replacement, and I'd love to pick up some flannel button-downs and maybe a puffy vest but am trying to restrain myself.....

So Little Paul is ready for back-to-school.  What's his Mama wearing this fall?  Perhaps that will be my next post (although jeans and t-shirts aren't terribly exciting!)

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

11 Days, 2 Parties, 6 Cakes, and 600 Miles...

Phew!  The past two weeks have been pretty hectic and LP and I are just starting to recover! 

We started last weekend with a big bbq bash at our house.  We had about 30 people over (about half were under the age of 3- yikes!) and made a ton of food.  Grillmaster Paul smoked 3 racks of ribs, made pulled pork (which he started smoking at 7 a.m.!), grilled chicken wings, and made all of the various rubs and sauces to go with each.  DELICIOUS. 

Unfortunately, I only got one photo of the whole thing:

A few days later it was Paul's birthday so his parents came over to celebrate over a big meal of Paul's favorite pasta dish.  It's a dish he ate while we were on our honeymoon- the restaurant chef was nice enough to send me the recipe so I could recreate the meal for our first anniversary and it has since become the go-to dish for Paul's birthday every year.  Yummy smoked gouda, pancetta, and artichokes tossed with pasta- delicious!

He blew out 9 candles on his cake (I didn't…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
