Sorry to the two people that read my blog about the randomness of my last few posts! If you look at the times on them I couldn't sleep so I decided to blog! When I re-read through them I realized my posts were a little bit like ramblings of a mad pregnant lady!

Nursery Art

Look at me nothing for months and then: BAM! 3 posts! Here are a few ideas for art in Mr. Baby's room. Dapper little animals from Berkley illustration, Peter Rabbit from Layla Grace, or Nests and Nursery rhymes from Restoration Hardware baby.

Nursery Inspiration

This is the nursery that melts my heart! But I also know it leans a little on the feminine side. Truthfully I actually didn't see that- it was said to me by salespeople at Restoration Hardware. Every time I would call to order something they would say how sweet it was for a little girl and we are having a little boy. I almost lost my cool one day because: hello the linens are blue!! My hubby was very amused that I thought the sales girl was out to spoil my plans for the perfect nursery. I did order those crib linens despite the ruffles, the horse, a camel back glider in Belgian linen and that crib but am on the look out for a dresser/changing table that has traditional and maybe a little more masculine lines. I also want to include that anthropologie pearl flourish mirror. We are picking up our glider tomorrow. It is not quite as pretty as the one in the picture as it has a little more heft to it but it was much more comfortable. For lighting I am getting this vintage art deco chandelier from my moms house that she is in the process of remodeling and this darling little sterling silver elephant lamp from pottery barn. I am still looking for artwork so if anyone has any suggestions I am open for them!


Hello. I am perhaps the worst blogger ever! I don't even have any pregnant pics of myself (isn't that what bloggers do?). I do have to say that I love being pregnant. I feel really great, however, work is getting pretty darn hard so I am super excited to start my leave but at the same time I just hate to wish away my pregnancy. We also have a pretty full plate we are getting ready to move!!! All I can say is "Yay!!!!! Space!!!" We are taking our little family and moving into my husbands childhood home. My in-laws decided they wanted to move into something smaller without a yard to care for so they found a cute place up the road and we are taking over their old house. All I can say is bless them because we were seriously outgrowing this place. But there is work that needs to be done over there and time is not something we have a lot of. We do what we can when we can which when you are in that nesting mode is enough to make one a little nuts and a little emotional. Currently the nursery has no walls (we have been peeling off wall paper to find another layer of wallpaper that was put right on to the drywall) and no floors (we have pulled up the carpet) I am hoping the painters can get started tomorrow and that the floors will be in by next week. I'm also thrilled to go shopping for new appliances. It's strange how fun changes when you are married with a baby on the way (also known as old). So that what we've been up to......

How cute is this?

So just wondering you any other new moms (I know I'm not a technically a new mom) have the fear of awful plastic baby stuff crowding your already very crowded house? That's why I have found myself obsessing about the bloom coco stylewood bouncer. It's not cheap (around $200) but it is beautiful and functional. Also any ideas on a non eye sore highchair?
PS: Am I being crazy? Should I just accept fisher price in to my life?

Don't forget....

It's back tonight! Just in time to remind me of all the beautiful clothes I can't wear! Xoxo

So apparently my little baby is the size of an eggplant. I am both totally ready and not at all prepared for this wee one!

What the???

So tonight I was looking for something to watch after Max went to sleep and I was horrified to discover that my beloved "Friends" has been picked up by none other than... NICK AT NIGHT!! Oh man does that make me feel old!! I thought Nick at Night was for old people! Leave it to beaver and Bewitched Etc... I mean don't get me wrong they sucked me in with the marathon but who can say no to "the one after Vegas"??

Back to school

My baby Maxwell started Jr. High on Monday! I can't believe it! I know it's so cliche to say but where does time go? Max is actually going to the same school that Henry and I went to and even has some of the same teachers! All day on Monday I was sick thinking about if he was having a good day (he did by the way) other than the 95 degree classrooms! We went on Friday to find his classes and he let me take some pics of him don't fret dear readers I would not subject my offspring to the humiliation of following him around campus with other students! I'm so proud of him!!


I hope this video makes you smile! I grew up watching the Muppets and I still love them!

The blog laybabylay. I have gone over and over her nursery inspiration boards. They keep me up at night trying to decide how I want to decorate the little peanut's room.

Things for the little man...

I have been trying have restraint! Trying to remember how fast little feet grow and that this little butter bean will be born in the cold dark winter and will be spending most of his days at home but..... here some things on my love list for little boys: mustache booties by pleasantly plump knits on etsy. I died when I 1st saw these on my friend Ann's very fashionable babe! I know it's not like super in the know but all of the woodland collection at baby gap is heart melting! I love dwell studio's little polka dot footies and I ordered a couple if these little cuties! Oh and last but not least blabla dolls- Max picked a few of these for the baby @ the Children's Hour bookstore before I knew they were a blog world thing! So to all my friends with little boys need tips on where else to find cute little man things!!!

Oh Joy!!!

We are just thrilled!!! We have a little Henry on the way in December! I am 23 weeks along and feeling great. This little butter bean is mover and a shaker! I feel him constantly and already love him so much!

Secrets from a stylist

Do you watch this? Because it is a must!!! The only design show I have ever actually liked was "dress my nest" with the lovely and wonderful Thom Filicia (formerly of queer eye for the straight guy0 and when it was canceled I was ever so sad but I do believe I enjoy the bubbly and charming Emily Henderson even more! She is just cute as a button and her room designs are to die for! I usually watch design shows and am grossed out by out boring and tacky things are (design on a dime I'm talking to you!) So set your DVR's people! Saturdays on HGTV!

This week we went to our Dr and got the heartbreaking news that one of our little twins had just stopped growing. The silver lining to this very sad news is that baby A is still doing fine. It was just the most miserable thing to see the two little sacs one still and tiny and the contrast of the other moving around, growing and getting stronger. I know we are still very blessed to have one I guess I just fell in love with the idea of two so this week will be just about shifting back to one. I also feel a little embarrassed that we told everyone so early. We were just so excited but looking back it seems foolish and a little immature. I also want to thank my friends and family. I am so lucky to have the support. I know all this IVF, baby talk and now miscarriage talk has been draining on our loved ones too. So thanks for the kind words, prayers and support.... we will get through this hopefully with a healthy baby at the end of this road. xoxox

blue+blue. blue+pink or pink+ pink????

I've been meaning to post but seeing that my life consists of: going to work, throwing up and sleeping there isn't much to post about! This week has been particularly rough I have actually lost weight and wore my 'skinny' jeans today :( This not going to be a big complaint post because I am so grateful! Grateful to be pregnant, blessed that it is twins, happy in all the ways one could be for the changes that are in our future but mostly I am curious!! I can't wait to find out what I am having? I won't find out for a while longer but I think it's 2 boys!!! What do you think?

Happy St. Paddy's

We took Max for a "Shamrock Shake" ahh how our version of St Patrick's Day fun has changed! Green beer has been traded for green ice cream! (I never liked beer anyway!!)

So, I am in spring cleaning mode. Majorly. I am working on my Everest: My closets. I really want to purge so we have the space to have an organized home. So my question is for you is what do you do with your clothes that you don't wear anymore? don't judge me but I can't bear to put my semi- designer (mostly Nanette Lepore & Anthropologie) clothes in garbage bags and drop them at the DI. Should I put them on ebay? Or just get over myself and donate? Help! Anyone who knows me knows I have a bit of crazy attachment to my clothes.

Hoping I can remember this this week and that those around me can too! This week begins hormone shots in addition to the pills I'm already taking! So, needless to say I feel awesome! The mood swings are the worst and I know if we get pregnant it will all be worth it so I just have to keep that in mind when I want to squeeze the life out of those around me!

Maxwell has big plans today. Today is the 6th grade Valentine dance. Max is excited to shake it. I on the other hand am in shock that my baby is going to a dance.

On my love list...

Maybe I have mentioned that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is my favorite show EVER (sorry Gossip Girl) and I have been obsessed with Kyle Richards emerald earrings but I assumed that being the fancy lady that she is I assumed they were far too pricey for little ole me but I was wrong!! Thanks to Shalyse (she found them for me) they can be mine or yours!

just a simple reminder when I have a sick kid, messy house and very tired hubby

My new favorite place in the city

It's no secret that I love the Grand America hotel. I was married there. We have Thanksgiving there. I would move right in if I could especially now!! They opened "La Bonne Vie" a little patisserie serving yummy fluffy french macaroons, gelato and other yummy things. It is just the perfect place. Every inch lovely. I died over the window displays and the packaging! So to my 3 loyal readers how about a date there? (I'm talking to you Amanda, ShaLyse and Linsey!)

My little chicks and I had a really great day! I got a facial then picked up my boys we grabbed some lunch, after we returned home we snuggled up on the sofa and watched movies until Midnight! I hope you are somewhere warm with ones you love!

New Year. New wardrobe?

I swore that in the new year I was going to be wise about my money and I really think I have stuck with it so far "investing" in some new clothes. These are my newest obsessions :
Anything leopard by Rebecca Taylor. The last three things I have purchased have been leopard and Rebecca Taylor. She has a way of making them soft and feminine because if done wrong leopard can look harsh and dated.

I'm also in love with black skinny jeans the Joe's visionare high waisted and Citizen Avedon in the star wash made my list of necessary wardrobe staples. On the opposite side of skinny jeans I am in love with the seven Ginger jean. I am saving my new pair for spring because wide leg and wet streets do not mix!!

But the thing on the UPS truck that really makes my heart race are the Vera Wang Lillian flat! Sadly gone are the days if sky high heels for this girl now it is only flats that seem to make the cut!
So tell me what are your 2011 must haves?

Hello there!

It must be coincidence that it had been exactly one month since I last logged in, looked at or even thought about this little blog BUT now that the dreaded holidays are over I can get back to my little slice of the inter web. I am very sad to report that I have zero Christmas or New Years pictures to show due to the fact that the lovely new Nikon camera that I bought for my hubby was stolen at a New Years Eve bash we attended (while in my care I might add) Don't worry since there are no pics I shall describe: I looked stunning, had on a perfect outfit and it was insanely glamorous! So we are back in the everyday (okay maybe my Christmas tree is still up) but lots of new is coming our way: new living room, Henry is going back to school, back on the baby bandwagon- meeting with our Dr at the end of the month, Max is joining his elementary school ski team and getting a new bedroom. That's the one thing that's really great about January even though usually you don't there is this sense of hope that for some reason you can just start over and do the things that would make you better or make your life better so to all the "resolution-ers" out there I wish you so much luck and joy this year!
