Want Gorgeous Photos of Your Little One?

Look no further! I found a photographer you are going to love! She was actually recommended to me by one of the moms in my Dallas Moms Club. The photographer's name is Abby White and her company is called Abby White Photography. I know there are lots of photographers out there but not too many with a legitimate studio which was one of my pet peeves until I found Abby. She's got it all, a studio, tons of natural lighting, a blog, a Web site and much more. She's also super sweet, easy going and works really well with little ones (she has two of her own). We had Abby take our daughter's six month old photos and here's a sneak peek. If you like what you see be sure to leave a comment on Abby's blog and check out her services.

Celebrating Fat Tuesday

How are you celebrating Fat Tuesday this year? What a fun way to kick off Lent with your kids if you have children or for yourself. This year we will be attending the Young Catholic Professionals monthly meeting/ speaker event in Dallas at which Mardi Gras themed food and drinks will be served. Our little one will be feasting on her first tastes of baby food, per the Pediatrician, rice cereal mixed with peaches or pears. Next year I hope to give her King Cake!

In any case be sure to celebrate and prepare yourself for the season of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday. If you are wondering why Catholics get Ashes on the forehead on Ash Wednesday well it's because it's a "an ancient penitential practice and symbolizes our dependence upon God's mercy and forgiveness."
