... our little angel. These announcements began hitting mailboxes of family & friends this morning. Feedback is already poring in. But, all I can think is it's amazing how quickly these little babies change. I look at this photo and marvel at how much she's grown since I took this, oh, four whole weeks ago. { gosh, i am TERRIBLY in love }

shake their booty

These tongue-in-cheek salt & pepper shakers just make me chuckle. Oh, and P.S.: the seasoning sprinkles come out of their behinds. Their beHINDS (!) How. cute. is. that.

good {yawn} morning

Today I will be enjoying my ((mostly)) decaf coffee while enjoying the sights & sounds* over at the JCrew Tumbler. Here's a little something for you, too...

{tell me that bag & all its spilling loveliness doesn't just make you want to forget the work day and go on a fabulous adventure... go 'head... lie to me.}

{um, Marissa? that is the most perfectly stacked wedding ring finger i have ever seen. ever. bravo.}

{the ROSEBOWL FLEA? really? i feel so lucky and special... it's like my second home. once a month. for a few hours. with a gazzillion other fashion / vintage / design - loving souls.}

{and again... flea markets. GAH. i'm itching to go now. too bad it's a damn tuesday. er, wednesday.}

*Okay, I'll admit the sounds are mostly (read: all) me "oooh"ing and "ahhh"ing. But you can't say you didn't do the same thing.

Yogi Mama

Last night I tiptoed out of work a teensy bit early {shhhh... don't tell} and rushed off to my first prenatal yoga class at my favorite yoga studio. And. It. Was. Divine. Not that I necessarily thought as much during the class, but afterwards... like now, I feel won...der...ful... All this growing had my body pulling / sitting / standing / sleeping in all sorts of odd positions and I think it just finally caught up with me. And my favorite part about the actual class was the instructors constant reminders about checking in with the baby, connecting with her, feeling her. I try to do that in my day-to-day on my own, carving out time for just the two of us, but when I'm isolated (as with this class) it's just so much more powerful. Needless to say, I'll be back (but next time in a comfier pair of yoga pants {wink}).

+ + + +

Every once & a while an image comes along that makes my heart swoon for NYC life again. Who am I kidding, it's FAR more frequent than that. Regardless, today's image is that of the + Pool. A fantastic project I'm sure you've read about it, as I had before today, too. But there's something about this image that just makes my little heart sing. Which is silly considering I grew up living 20 minutes from Malibu and still live only a short drive away...

mommy & daddy humor

Today, at the urging of one of my favorite bloggers, we downloaded the (now infamous) Samuel L. Jackson reading of Go the F**K to Sleep. We're saving it as a little treat for ourselves when we'll inevitably be sleep deprived and in need of a little adult laughter over the situation. I. Can't. Wait.
