Lately


Hi Friends!

Just checking in to catch up on what's been going on lately...I have some fun things to share!  :)

First...I got to meet the gorgeous and extremely witty Katie from Keep Calm and Carry On a couple weeks ago.  She and her hubby found themselves in Lake Tahoe for their anniversary, so naturally I insisted suggested that we get together for a rum runner out at the Beacon.  ;)  She could not have been more genuine and fabulous in person...I absolutely loved getting the chance to meet her!  And we're already talking about their next visit here!


She also captured an awesome shot of our little family of three...love!  Clearly Ethan has an affinity for pretty brunettes from Ohio...he is totally hamming it up!  ;)


On to other news...I just finished Gone Girl in record time!  It was so captivating and creepy.  Compared to other books that I have read recently {uh hum...50 Shades}, it had really amazing writing and totally sucked me in from beginning to end.  Has anyone else read it?  Any new book suggestions?


As indicated yesterday, I may have done a little extra shopping while on our Minneapolis trip.  Gap was having a denim sale {buy one, get one half off...how could I resist?} so I picked up a gray pair of the ankle zippered skinnies {no longer available online apparently} and the deconstructed always skinnies.  I actually have the always skinnies and really like the way they fit, so I was happy to score another pair with the deconstructed detail on them.




Last, I am honored that "Trendy Peas" featured Baby Ethan's nursery on their blog recently.  Their cute dog print was one of the prints that we used on the gallery wall.  Check out the post here!

  4. I loved Gone Girl! Very different genre, but The Lost Wife is a beautiful book, probably my favorite of the year.

  5. Thanks for the book recommendation - I'm always looking for a good read! I have the grey GAP ankle-zip pants and love them (and also love the fact that there is no sales tax on clothing in MN... I miss that)

  6. I read Gone Girl in two days (normally it takes me 6+ weeks to finish a book) and LOVED EVERY PAGE. I was completely captivated by it, and it was SO well written. Are you going to read any other Gillian Flynn books?

  7. Adorable family photo!! Wasn't Gone Girl so good, yet so crazy?! I read it in about 2 days I could not put it down. Have you read On the Island by Tracy Gravis Graves? It was another one I couldn't put down!

  11. I think it's great that you got to meet up with a fellow blogger! I would love that opportunity :) If anyone ever comes out to Temecula wine country, it's on!

  12. I think I might need to switch gears and try Gone Girl...I'm right in the middle of Anna Karenina and while it's *AWESOME*, the 1000 pages is a little intimidating (c; I also think I need to head to the Gap, those zippered skinnies are darling!

  13. Wow, I need to go to Lake Tahoe sometime - beautiful!

    I love Gap skinny jeans too - I wonder if they make any maternity ones?

    I never have enough time to read for myself. Maybe that should be a goal to read at least one book on maternity leave along with everything else I want to accomplish. I'll have to look into that book!

    What have I been up to? Getting super exhausted with less than 6 weeks until Sadie is born.
