One Miles per hour

My Swedish American love story.

Today…

This morning started around 5am unfortuantely. Miles seems to be teething really bad the last few days and on top of it seems to have a little cold. It has been super cold lately which is weird since the first two days were SUPER HOT. All the sudden the temp dropped and we found ourselves totally under dressed.

This afternoon Marcus, Miles & I met an old friend of mine Cecilia at the mall for coffee and dessert at her job Gateau. They had the besttttt cakes, cookies and pastries. I had a slice of “princess tarta” (princess cake) a soft white cake with strawberry and cream filling topped with marzapan. It’s a common birthday or special ocassion cake here. Since I am not usually into sweets this was a big deal for me and I had a HUGE sugar high afterwards….
after some shopping (for Miles as usual) we headed home for dinner at Marcus grandmas.
Oh ya & they had something called a “baby lounge” at this mall. I found the next best thing besides my usual breastfeeding, changing hideout in Nordstroms! This place was filled with darkness and leather couches and chairs for breastfeeding or relaxing on as well as a super fresh changing station with nice changing tables. Props to Taby Centrum for making one of these… reguar bathrooms just don’t do it for me anymore. Though I have no problem breastfeeding in public for the most part with my cover or ergo carrier it’s nice to sit down and relax somewhere Miles can also fall asleep!

I am on the hunt for a dress for the baptism but find myself shopping for Miles as usual and shopping on a budget isn’t very fun :/

I love my job…

Since I started selling jewelry for Lia Sophia I have “earned” so much practically free jewelry. Including these two beauties that came in the mail today….

The “M” necklace was ordered secretly for me by Marcus & Miles for Mother’s Day & I spoiled myself a little with the lemon chiffon ring. (ignore my horrible paint job).

If anyone is interested in ordering comment below or email me!
Destinyflores333@gmail.com
I do direct sales and can even help you host a facebook party where you would get tons of free & discounted jewelry based on what we sell… it’s super easy and super fun!

I don’t ship to Sweden but I will be there in 9 days so if you wanted to order something you see online you could ship it to me & I would bring it to you!

Tuesday’s & Thursday’s Marcus is in school all day from 8-5pm and unless I want to go crazy and stay at home I usually hit the town. Miles & I walked to State St. grabbed some coffee & ended up spending almost two hours in Nordstrom’s as usual. haha. I officially have a “shoe guy”. Not sure how I feel about that….

anyways two coffees & a hundred dollars later I left with a Mother’s Day gift for my momma, a new tank, acid washed denim shorts & made a couple returns. Oh ya & a mandatory stop at the women’s lounge to change and feed Miles.

Marcus is with the guys tonight watching the NFL draft & Miles & I got home a little while ago after I worked with a client for 2 hours, did some grocery shopping at TJ’s & dropped beer off for Marcus…. now it’s bathtime then finally dinner time for me & a glass of wine here at home with my friend Sarah.

p.s. I am OBSESSED with Miles SEVEN’s jeans… he finally grew into !

❤ Happy Thursday

SEVEN Jeans for baby

My little is growing up to be just like mommy 😉 I couldn’t help but splurge a little (what’s new) and get little Miles a pair of Seven’s I found for a great deal at Nordstrom’s rack…

that little diaper booty & those back rolls are worth every penny.

Nordstrom ADDICT

Sooooo I failed & went wild at Nordstrom’s yesterday. Whoops. Atleast it was with my Nordies credit card so it’s not that bad right? WRONG. I get so close to paying it off then I get carried away and spend again. Oh well… guess I am a life time Nordstrom’s card holder… can you blame me? I love their stuff and don’t even get me started on their customer service. They take ANYTHING and EVERYTHING back no matter what almost whenever ! I bought a pair of Steve Madden boots one year (short ankle black boots) I was a big fan and loved them & they were on sale so it was perfect. I got a size 9 which I usually am but after a month or more of wearing them and constantly feeling like they were just too big I sucked it up and kept wearing them. Then one day I went in to discuss my issue with them. They looked up my item based off my card history & told me they sent those boots to Nordstrom’s rack ( a place for out of season items). AKA they didn’t carry them anymore so I thought oh well I”ll just keep them and double up on socks haha

well…. they said bring them in anyways and they will take them back for a full refund… even thought they were totally worn! I also bout a Marc Jacobs wallet from them and after awhile the zipper broke and they took that back to! They do free shoe repairs if you’ve got their credit card and not to mention the women’s lounge for breastfeeding and changing babies is stocked with leather reclining chairs, sofas, carpet, lamps for dimming and fresh changing pads… LOVE. I use this as my excuse to shop….”whoops time to feed/change Miles, guess we have to stop by Nordstrom’s)

Anyways yesterday I bought a pair of Tom’s, Havaianas, a black thin cardigan thing, a tight black tank crop top, an olive green flowy crop, and yayyyy my shorts overalls. I was [ ] this close to buying them from Free People for a bijillion dollars after not finding ones that were just right and then it happened… I found them in the BP section! STEAL!

here are some pics of a few of the items ❤ sorry for the shitty iphone picture of myself … the online picture of the overalls just didn't do justice.

Let the planning begin….

Since my best friend Lalani asked me to be one of her bridesmaids for her very special day I’ve been going crazy on Pinterest looking for the perfect dress 🙂

She decided we would all choose our own style and shade of nude, beige or cream. I love this idea especially since one shape or color of dress may not look good on everyone! I’m so excited to help her planner special day :)!
