The Waiting Game


Well friends, tonight I head in to be induced for baby #2. It has been a long pregnancy, and I am so excited to meet this little one.
I can't wait to introduce our new baby to the world!
Back with an update soon!

I have just recently come across the wonderful Framed blog, full of tasty and fairly simple recipes. The author, Kate, is a self-taught cook who posts recipes from all over on her blog, and her requirement is that they take no longer than 30 minutes to make- love that!
I made these chicken skewers Saturday night, and they were delicious!

These are just a few more in the queue for me...

Peach Crumble

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken With Apples and Sage

Crostini with Lemony Mascarpone and Sweet Fiery Peppers

Slow-Cooker Bolognese

Still no baby, and I'm officially overdue for the second time...ugh. The bright side? They're bringing me in on Tuesday night for an induction- hallelujah! Not to mention, Miss J was more than worth the wait, and I'm sure that will be the case for this little one, too. In the mean time, I will just keep getting my life organized and planned out in the next couple days- with my fingers crossed!

Party Time

Madewell's new fall collection has arrived, and I've decided that this would be my ideal outfit for my first night out, post-baby delivery.

Well, probably not the bracelets with such a sparkly top, but I had to include them, as they would be the perfect addition to my jewelry collection, nonetheless!

My Current State

(My apologies for the awful picture quality.)

So I'm now officially in waiting mode for this baby. My due date is this Saturday, August 28th, and I can't wait for this little baby to arrive! I'm trying to stay on top of laundry, keeping the house clean, and stocking the house with all the little things Miss J might need, but otherwise, all I'm doing is waiting. And just to keep things nice and crazy, J has decided that her crib is no longer a suitable place for her to sleep, so we are moving her to a "big girl bed" this week. My little baby is turning into a big girl and getting ready to be a big sister...what a week!
Fingers crossed for a new, healthy arrival soon! Stay tuned!


Chairloom is a super-cool local company that is picking up lots of well-deserved press for their amazing work. They use chic, modern fabrics to reupholster old furniture. They sell unfinished pieces, pieces they have re-done themselves, or you can being your own piece to them to have reupholstered. I would love one of their chairs or stools in my house!

Tucker for Target

Check out these amazing pieces from Tucker coming to Target September 12th! I can't wait! These flowy tops and dresses are exactly what I'm going to be looking for post-baby, so I am especially excited!
They are only going to be available until October 7th, so don't miss your chance!

Madewell Summer Sale

One of my favorite new shops, Madewell, is having a big summer sale starting now, and free shipping if you order $100 or more! Lucky for me (unlucky for my credit card), I'm heading back into normal clothing sizes soon, and and particularly psyched for some new attire! Get over there now- you'll be glad you did!


I've been currently obsessing over grey, textured boots, particularly some of the ones I've seen on my favorite Bravo shows- "Flipping Out" and "9 By Design." I recently found these beauties and can't stop thinking about them! Sadly, they are not in my size (9), and I can't find them anywhere. Any hot tips, please send them my way! xo

These are also on the list- not grey, but absolute perfection nonetheless!

Twinkle Twinkle


You can't get much more celebratory that sequins, am I right? I always struggle with this because I absolutely love the look of a sequin top or skirt, but can never find an occasion to wear them...New Years? Bachelorette parties? Clubbing? When would you wear sequins?

Cake Balls

I have been drooling over everything over at Bakerella for the last hour, and have subsequently fallen in love with these little Cake Balls. They are a terrific idea! And Bakerella even has a cookbook coming out of all different cake balls and cake pops and fun ways to decorate them. So clever! I can't wait to try these!

Lucy Laught

I am completely smitten with Lucy Laught and her beautiful blog! She is a fashionista, traveler, writer, and overall super-stylish lady. She puts together some of the greatest outfits I've ever seen, and always with a complete list of where every piece is from (always helpful, right?). Indulge yourself in some Friday fashion and head on over.

One Year


I can't believe I've been in this little blog space for a year! It has been such a wonderful experience being a part of this unique and special world- learning new things, meeting new friends, and finding great new ideas. Thank you to all my blog friends and readers for all of your encouragement and support, it means the world to me!
Here's to much more fun still to be had!

Yum! I'll be dragging my sister out for one of these once this baby arrives!

Aren't these vintage iPhone covers sweet?

P.S.- Her kids stuff is equally adorable!

You Say Tomato...

Everyone I know is talking about the abundance of tomatoes in their gardens these days, and since I am not the best gardener out there, I haven't gotten any tomatoes in my garden yet, so I've been gifted many delicious tomatoes from friends and family. Martha has some amazing looking recipes for using up all of these delicious tomatoes before they're gone.

Ricotta and Tomato Toast

Fresh Tomato Soup

Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad

Chopped Tomato Salad with Toasted Garlic
