It's Friday I'm in Love (good bye winter)

hallelujah, its March this weekend!!!  If winter looked this lovely, I'm sure nobody would mind if it were around a few weeks longer, but it didn't, so I think were all ready for spring!!!

Right Now I'm Feeling (colored Sofas)

Bold and happy, these eye-catching pieces of furniture are quite loud, but I love a big, bright statement piece!

Pregnancy Week-by-Week

When I first found out I was pregnant back in June, I knew I wanted to track the growth of the bump, so I started taking weekly photos.  My husband lent a hand (literally) by holding up the fruit or veggie representing the size of the baby.  A lot of diligence and 36 self timer photos later, I think we have a pretty good log of my first pregnancy.

It's Friday, I'm in love (with this Amsterdam loft)

I know this loft has made its way around the blogs, but I love it too much not to make it part of my Friday post.  It's always been my dream to live in a big airy loft and this one has the perfect mix of industrial and modern, eclectic and clean and neutrals to color.  Living here would be nothing short of living in a dream.

    Welcome to the world, Oliver Rome!!

    Wednesday was the most amazing day ever!  We welcomed our son, Oliver Rome to the world.  I was due Thursday, but I expected him to be late, and he surprised us arriving just a little early.  He was born February 11, 2015 at 3:20 PM weighing 7 pounds and 10 ounces, and measuring 20 inches long.  His button nose, amazing lips and the rest of his tiny little body could not be more perfect and more loved by his new mom and dad.  Thanks for baring with me while I check in and out for a while.

    February Wishlist

    I'll forego all the material things to have a walk with my dog, wearing only a light jacket, and returning with clean paws and shoes.  But with the weather we've been having, it seems like I'll be more likely to score everything on this list before that.

    1. blazer - a sophisticated cut, perfect for hiding that left-over post baby bump
    2. brass mail collector - bills never looked so pretty
    3. woven sneaker - if the snow ever melts.  I love the easy and elevated look of these sneakers
    4. Maxi Dress - I think the wearer of this dress will feel like she's living in a Free People photo-shoot
    5. drawstring bag - I'm so smitten for this little Loeffler Randall bag
    6. brass love object - because this belongs on the desk of a gal who's events company is called I Love Love
