This series, I Adore What I DID, allows me to catch up with you on a more personal level! Plus, you can see and get the deats on WHAT WE WORE!!! Take a look at our month through unedited iPhone pictures {read: they won’t always be the best quality but #reallife} and some words, too. Xox

Well, you were an EPIC month, May! I’m actually quite sad to see you go. First and foremost, who knew this was the month that my son would start trotting around town walking like it’s his job??! I sure didn’t! Also, we started May with some rainy and cold weather and thankfully, that’s long gone and we now can enjoy the GORGEOUS, perfect, sunny warmth of spring {which has actually been feeling like summer lately}. Besides for the walking and the weather, we ate LOTS of sweets {maybe too many?!?}, only made it to Whole Foods once {whaaaaaaat?!? and it wasn’t even documented; was wahh} and Brody even took his first road trip filled with lots of family time. Obsessed with this month! See all the action below!

We kicked May off with an Hawaiian-themed catered-in house-warming party at our friends’ new cool pad! Their place was decked out to the extreme in pineapples, giant leaves, and pure Hawaiian goodness. And this bar cart above, PERFECTION.

These two! By now you know Brody’s friend Jeffrey and it’s because I seriously can’t get enough of these two. Do I say that every time? I think so. But it’s SO true! Jeffrey ate dinner over one night and he’s actually wearing a shirt that Brody has too! Later on we changed Brody into his shirt and they were twins!! It was hilarious, not to mention super cute! Take a look at the collage below to see alllll the shenanigans these boys got into that night!

The hubs was out of town for Mother’s Day weekend seeing his brother graduate from Law School.

Surprise from Isaiah {and according to the card they were from Brody too, but of course}! This definitely made my day!!

I Adore What I Love Blog // I ADORE WHAT I DID MAY 2016 // www.iadorewhatilove.com #iadorewhatilove

Mother’s day with the one and only boy who made me a mom! I am the luckiest and truly don’t take any day with him for granted. To say that I’m obsessed with being a mom to this little one is an absolute understatement! LOVE. HIM. {to the moon and back times infinity!}

I Adore What I Love Blog // I ADORE WHAT I DID MAY 2016 // www.iadorewhatilove.com #iadorewhatilove

HAIRCUT! We went short! The hairdresser was laughing at me because the first time we went to get him a cut, {which was only a few weeks before this time} I was SUPER paranoid that she was going to cut too much and hardly let her cut anything at all. We just wanted a clean up. This time was a whole different story, however!! I told her to go short for the summer and that’s exactly what she did! Pictures of the after below! He needed it!
