New threads

September 24th, 2010

I’m excited about fall clothes. I am such a sweater girl – and there are wraps and cardigans everywhere you look this year. In fact I really like a lot of the trends right now, which doesn’t always happen for me. I’m loving the ballet flats, skinny jeans, big belts, long shirts and leggings. Not to mention I’ve finally dropped those last pregnancy pounds and a few extra. So, it’s very tempting for me to really go hogwild, but I tried to be conservative. Here are a couple of the items I picked up:

Love these skinny jeans from Gap. They will be great with my tall boots or flats. No thanks on the heels.

Got this in white from Gap as well. Have already worn twice. It’s going to be a good one.

Love this wrap I picked up from Kohl’s.

And P.S. I got this dress for my 15-year high school reunion coming up. I, however, am not a 6 foot model so it looks a little different on me, but I love it!

Grabby baby

September 21st, 2010

Oh my goodness, we are into the do-not-look-away-for-a-second phase of babyland. She will grab and eat anything she sees. And she’s very fast. So if I appear as if I have not showered for a few days and my house is a mess, please know that I’m not lazy, I just don’t have that kind of time on my hands right now.

You know those photos people always have of their baby with food all over their face? Maybe it’s just me but I never found those particularly cute or funny. Until it was my own baby. And now that Eva is starting to enjoy some finger food on her own, I’m reliving it all over again. And I know now it’s not really the messiness that’s cute but it’s watching her have a whole new experience for the first time and loving every minute of it. Wish I could really capture it.

Sometimes it’s best if she’s just not wearing anything.

First spaghetti. Yum.

Who doesn’t love ice cream?

Final days of summer

September 19th, 2010

This weather sure is refreshing. The days are still sunny and warm and the nights are so nice and cool. The air has been off and the windows open for days. I hope it sticks around for a little while.
