Mommy Nook

Spent a little time playing on polyvore this evening when Husband J came home from work. I've been seeing a lot of cute offices lately on pinterest which have left me wishing for a mommy nook of my own. If I had the space I would hope for it to look just like this below. How amazing is that Rachel Zoe watercolor it would be perfect in a gorgeous frame behind my chair as she would say it is everything oh and wouldn't this be the perfect spot to put those gorgeous pink bookends I have been lusting after? I am such a sucker for stripes lately how awesome is that black and white striped lamp. The little white mugs are the perfect place to keep my pens and pencils. ohhh a girl can dream right? By the way sorry I have been pretty quiet here on my blog it is getting harder to find the time because Kael is now starting to be very very active, little man should be on the move here pretty soon..Happy Hump Day!!

Little Boys..

Hope everyone is having a great week! I have been helping my girlfriend pick out things for her new home she has two adorable little boys with a new baby on the way so we have been focusing a ton on little boy rooms and it made me think about what I will do for Kaels room once he is a little older and is begging me to get rid of the light blue and gold. I LOVE these animal heads from anthropologie they are adorable for a little boys or little girls room. Im a huge fan of tufted furniture and it is usually pretty girly looking but I think this black headboard is gorgeous I picture having two twin beds in the room both with this headboard accented with black and white striped bedding. I love layering in rooms I think it would be so cute to have this fun zebra and a large sheepskin rug on the floor for a soft spot for playing. The swinging chair is so adorable and would be a great spot for a little boy to read and play. I love the idea of framing old maps and that sconce on either side of each bed would just be adorable. In terms of paint on the wall I think it would be so fun to paint gray and white stripes on one wall and leave the rest of the room white! Well the Phillies just lost and Husband J is pacing and starting to curse so I will just leave you with my little inspiration..Happy Hump Day

Next House

How beautiful are all of these fireplaces? Never more than this time of year when the air is just starting to get chilly do I wish for a fireplace of my own. I love the romantic feel that they add to a room, curled up on a sofa drinking a glass of wine or some hot chocolate listening to the fire crack..ahh heavenly. Are any of you on twitter? I used to scoff at the idea of it mostly because I didn't know how to navigate it and that made me feel a little old but now I find myself wasting more time on the twitterverse than I do on Facebook. I guess Facebook will always be good as a way of communicating quickly with friends and family truthfully though I am kind of over it.. Im obsessed with all the instant information I get via twitter from celeb gossip to food recalls to mommy advice it is pretty amazing. Obviously I follow my best gal pal Nicole Richie on their and sometimes I send random tweets to celebs that really irk me it makes me feel better.

Time Flies..

Today is me and Husband J's two year wedding anniversary time sure does fly it feels like just yesterday I was planning { read as : micromanaging } our wedding to the teeni tiniest detail down to what color tablecloth the sushi roller would have. I absolutely loved the planning process and it was magical day at the time it was the best day of my life { Kaels birth has now drastically trumped the wedding day as my favorite day ever } but the longer I am married the more I realize that the BEST days are really what come AFTER the wedding. I am so proud of me and Jay and the life we are creating for one another and the home we continue to build everyday for Kael. So Happy Anniversary my love wouldn't want to be on this crazy ride with anyone else..

Embrace Messy

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend mine is good I managed to get to the grocery store this morning and to my confusion it wasn't even OPEN yet, I felt funny like I was waving my Mommy flag way too high way too early in the morning. I couldn't just sit in the parking lot, desperate, waiting from them to open their doors but I was in South Philly at the BJ's Wholefoods so I didn't really know where to go to waste 30 minutes so I thought I would go and treat myself to a Pumpkin Spice Latte, no luck it seems that South Philly and Starbucks are having a standoff because there was not one for 20 block. So I settled and decide to drive through the McDonald's drive thru for some coffee the only thing I will eat from Mcdonalds {if you dont know why take a little peek at the book Fast Food Nation } I got to the window and asked for a Non Fat Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte, their reply " umm I think we can put carmel in the coffee " lol that response made my morning. I got home and half way through putting all the stuff away and was exhausted,stopped and as I sit here writing this post I am still looking at the other half of the groceries that needs to be put away. See..being a Mom is so fun, the best kind of fun but the ONE part that I am having trouble getting used to is the extra cleaning that it involves this mama never liked to clean and things didn't change when I gave birth. I'd rather be browsing my favorite blogs, facebook { btw what's with this new facebook, what MORE can it do its getting a little excessive people can already tell you exactly where they are who they are with accompanied with a map to the location so so creepy NO one needs to know that much about me }or just about anything other than cleaning. Husbands J's parents gave us a little cash in our card for our anniversary and that is going directly to a cleaning lady for a little treat to us both..below are some pictures of when messy can be kind of pretty they are also good examples of how my hair looks each and everyday..opps.

Happy Weekend!

Its the weekend!! I know I don't go into work everyday but weekends still are very exciting to me because Husband J is home and that means we get to do fun activities with Kael and there is an extra set of hands which means that Momma can RELAX a little bit. For me relaxing means soaking in the tub I love a nice long hot bath mixed with my favorite Lush bath balls and this amazing Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Honey bath bubbles that was given to me by my Stepmom when I gave birth to Kael those two things mixed with the new InStyle or People magazine and I can simmer for hours. When I get out I feel awesome and doesn't a hard working stay at home Mom thats covered in spit up most of the day deserve to feel awesome every once in a while. Im pretty excited for this upcoming weekend we are going to to take Kael to pick apples and Im going to attempt my first ever apple pie AND its me and Husband J's two year wedding anniversary time sure does fly..happy weekend everyone. By the way how amazing are these tubs below a barefoot tub is on my list of " next house " purchases so Dreamy!

Mommy Uniform

So the rain today wasn't great but I am not going to lie I am enjoying the cool weather! I have also been enjoying going through my fall clothes since I was pregnant this time last year i feel like all my fall clothing is new because I haven't worn them in so long. I dont have many places to wear many of these clothes my days consist mostly of going for walks, chillin with Kael at our new hang out nest and strolling through the grocery store that just opened in our neighborhood { not gonna lie it was a huge highlight around here } below is an example of a perfect fall Mommy uniform { Starbucks is included because it is a must when your child is not sleeping through the night yet }

Eye Candy

Happy Monday Everyone its almost over and thats not such a bad thing. For me Mondays are always such a blah day it takes me till about 12 in the afternoon to get rid my case of " the Mondays " and figure out what I want Im going to do to make the most of the day . We had a good weekend over here on Saturday Kaels Paternal Grandmother came over and Husband J and I went down to the stadium and tailgated for the Penn State { Husband J's alma mater } and Temple football game. It was nice to be out among the fans { read : drunk college kids } tailgating it is one of me and my Husbands favorite activities to do together and we both enjoy it equally. Though on Saturday he enjoyed it a little bit more than me I think { the mind erasers and vodka transfusions can be thanked for that } I stuck to a couple of nice light beers and was MUCH happier come Sunday morning, Husband J was hurting. Sunday we went and helped surprise my good friend Halla for her Birthday and had a 30th Anniversary dinner for Husband J's parents. It was a busy but fun weekend and I was sad to see it come to a end. Today felt so much like fall I had my first Pumpkin Spice latte of the season and I picked out Kaels first Halloween costume. I am so excited for all of the holidays coming up! I thought I would leave you guys with a little eye candy I found these sparkly bookends here that would look perfect on a desk or on a book shelf love them, I might just have to put them on my Christmas list!
