BTW: I’M AN AUNT!!!!!

Hello!!!! As you might have inferred from the vague title of this post… I’M AN AUNT!!! My precious niece, Valerie Jane, was born on March 7th weighing five pounds and five ounces. My sister, Kristen, and her boyfriend, Ramon, are so happy to welcome their little girl whose namesake is derived from both of their beautiful mothers. I am the proudest TT on the planet and I am so obsessed with Valerie I just can’t stand it. Did I mention she’s cute? Cause she’s so freaking cute. The proof is in the pictures:

Le sigh… she’s so perfect. The cutest button nose, her full head of black hair (Just like her mom had when she was born!), and the most darling little baby sneezes you’ve ever heard, I just can’t get enough of my niece. Every time I see her, I fall more in love and whenever I’m not with her, I am thinking about when I can hold her again. I am so honored to be an aunt to the tiniest princess and can’t wait to watch her continue to blossom every day. TT Sarah loves you, sweet Valerie!

Who else is a member of the cool aunt or uncle club? How about a member of the new parent club? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Daily Dose Of Adorable

Hello! My parents are seriously one of the cutest couples on the planet, and they always seem to be doing something sweet for each other. Just this past week, for example, my dad brought home the gorgeous tulips seen below for my mom to bring a little spring to her step despite the insane snowfall our neck of the woods was hit with. He also used a Precious Moments advertisement in the Parade magazine to make the most precious thing I’ve ever seen. Check it out:

Every year, my dad plans an amazing summer family vacation. And, after my mom had read several books set at charming beach locations, she decided that the sea was the place to be. Coincidentally, my dad was thinking the same thing after many trips to the mountainous North Carolina region. So, he chose Hilton Head for the very first Mushenheim family beach vacation.

Shortly after this decision was made, I saw the Precious Moments ad hanging on our refrigerator with some adjustments to it in my dad’s handwriting. It was basically the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen and I think my mom agrees, because it has been displayed ever since. This, on top of the lovely bouquet that my dad bought for her is more adorable than I can bear and, needless to say, my parents are definitely #relationshipgoals!

What is something sweet that your significant other has done for you? What are your #relationshipgoals? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Adorable Cuteness Overload

Adorable Cuteness Overload

Hi everyone!! So the other morning I wake up and my dad tells me “make sure you take a picture of what I did on the kitchen table”. So, in other words, I heard “make sure you put it on your blog”. Lol, my dad set up a little surprise shrine for my mom, who is going through some intense medical treatment, to wake up to:

Before even stepping into the kitchen, I could smell the beautiful hyacinths from our front yard. My dad also included lovely daffodil sprigs in his tiny bouquet. Not only did he pick flowers special for my mom, but he upped the ante with a hello from a cute dog and “Dave The Gnome“, who he was gifted with by JANE herself.

I often write about how my mom will surprise me with fashion related gifts like accessories or clothing and it’s always such a delight. So, it was sweet to see my dad muster up a surprise of his own to help start my mom’s day with a smile. To spread the love even more, CHARLES told me to send the picture of his creation to my sister, too. So cute.

Later in the morning, I heard my mom tell my dad how much she liked her surprise and he replied with “Oh, yeah – I made it for Gem”. (My dog. Massive eye roll!!) The Adorable Cuteness Overload was nice while it lasted! 😀

How do you like to surprise your loved ones? What is the best surprise that you have received? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Darling Daffodils

Darling Daffodils

Hellooo! Despite the random spring snow flurries in Ohio, the flowers have began to bloom! Although the weather isn’t perfect, it is so nice to see spring staples starting to emerge like our patches of hyacinths, crocuses, and the lovely daffodils that line our driveway:

Not only are these flowers beautiful but they sure are inspiring. They are so delicate and even though snow is falling and the wind is blowing them every which way, they hold strong and their beauty seems all the more radiant for it. What a life lesson that you can learn from such a little bloom!

What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? What kind of flowers are blooming in your area? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Happy 23rd Birthday, Best Friend!

Happy 23rd Birthday, Best Friend!

Hellooo everyone and happy weekend! Today is an exciting day because it’s my best friend, Lea’s, twenty-third birthday!! Lea and I have been best friends for close to ten years now and I consider myself the luckiest gal in the world for it. Whether we’re taking one of our BFF day trips or hanging out in my basement and drinking boxed wine, we always manage to have a total blast during every hang out. Even in the early stages of our friendship, I knew that Lea was always going to be someone that I wanted in my life, and we have just about ten years of BFFhood under our belt to show for it.

Lea is and will always be my A1 from the day one and I am so excited for ten more years of best friendship and probably drinking boxed wine in my basement. I am so incredibly proud to have Lea as my best friend and, like a fine wine, she just gets better with age! Happy birthday, darling! I can’t wait to celebrate with you soon!

I LOVE YOU!!!! ❤

So thankful for all of the amazing friends that I have made through the blogosphere, especially this lady!! Please help me welcome Miss Rin back into the WordPress family by giving her page some love! ❤

Hey, you!

Hello, Lovelies!

Today, I wanted to tell you about my lifewithlilred. That sentence worked itself out nicely, haha! Anyway, I was lucky enough to meet Sarah back when I was known as “KambOfGod”. I did end up deleting that blog and coming back, but let’s get back on track. Sarah liked one of my very first posts, in 2015. She commented and followed me. I decided to see what she had to offer and I ended up staying on her site for a few hours. She is very honest about her likes/dislikes about situations or products. I remember this one post she had about her being sure her hair didn’t smell, because her boyfriend would have told her. She knew that because he always complained about her morning breath. She’s fearless and I absolutely adore her. She offers helpful diys, fyis, reviews, advice, etc. One thing I feel we share…

Hi everyone and welcome to a fabulous OOTD for my Salute To Summer guest bloggers series compliments of my sweet friend, Geneva, from Genney Darling. Genney girl is an absolute doll. I so enjoyed chit chatting with her to get this post in order and checking out her blog is a total must – so be sure to give it some love! At the end of her post, Geneva mentions hoping to come back on lifewithlilred. All of my guest bloggers will always have a home on my page if they so choose, so this is definitely not the last you will be seeing of her! Now, take a look at her post exclusively for lifewithlilred:

Mauve Maven OOTD

Hello Darlings!

I’m Geneva and I run the blog Genney Darling. I was super excited when Sarah agreed to have me publish a post on her blog “lifewithlilred”.  She asked for something related to summer, which is coming soon, and I knew that I had tons of ideas especially for fashion posts. For those who don’t follow me, I run a fashion blog where I share my personal style with my readers. I have only had my blog for ten months, but I am already in love with the blogging experience and where it might take me.

Summer fashion can be difficult. I believe it is easier (and more fun) in the fall when you can layer on all kinds of flannels and sweatshirts along with other accessories and still look good while being comfortable. In the summer, we still have to think of comfort (especially in the heat), and it just feels all too easy to go to our basic short shorts and graphic tees.

In this outfit, I opted for my personal favorite mom jeans along with this mauve halter tank. I have been obsessed with mauve and I’m sure that it will keep making appearances in my wardrobe throughout the summer. This tank definitely will. I think it may be my new favorite summer piece!

I thought the mom jeans would be good for summer because they are looser than skinny jeans, so your legs will be able to breathe a little better. (And some of us aren’t quite ready to show off our pale legs just yet!)
