Random blog on which we crush: Desiree Fawn’s So Fawned and Prudent Baby go way back but if you aren’t familiar with this shop owning blogger and pinterest rockstar, you will want to take a peep. This young mama’s adorable brick-n-mortar store, Tango, in Peterborough Ontario is now open for online business, woot!
Project we wish we had created: Of course we wear our kids macaroni jewelry creations proudly but these wood and neon lace baubles from MARTHA seem fun to make with ultra stylish results.
Thing I want to put in my mouth right now: The Yummy Life shares delicious recipes and instructions for natural fruit and herb flavored waters. As part of my new healthy lifestyle (no, really) I am replacing diet drinks and caffeine with tasty refreshing concoctions like this.
Place I wish we were headed this weekend: I have a serious case of Rhode Island home-sickness lately and NO, it’s not just the lobsters I miss. I do miss the lobsters. Anyhoo, we have a big road trip to the west coast next month (anyone want to loan us an RV?) but I’ve started dreaming of Rhode Island and how I could squeeze in a week with my entire family at Second Beach.
News that we are excited to announce: The Disney Baby blog is live! I’m enjoying “meeting” all of the bloggers and seeing photos of their adorable families and reading their smart, helpful, heartfelt posts. It’s a magical place, of course. Come say hi.Lovely thing which I have acquired: I bought my husband a new ipad for his birthday and sneakily walked off with the old one. I’ve never really “gotten” why people like or need them and I’m still searching for worthwhile apps for grownups but I’ve discovered, surprisingly, that I love to read on it. I mostly love that I can read on it at the gym and it doesn’t close on me and it sits up straight and I can turn the page with a flick. Now I am also moving my magazines subscriptions over to it so I have them all on hand for any spare moment that pops up, otherwise… when? So I’m reading again, and that feels awesome. What are you reading these days? Pictured above: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir)& Beautiful Ruins: A Novel
Thing that has me discouraged: Back to that gym thing. Ok so I’ve been working out for a whole week and a half. I hate working out. The personal trainer from Club Med and I created a workout and set a goal for me to lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks. That is next Monday. You guys, I have GAINED 3 pounds! I don’t care if “it’s muscle,” I want that number lower. Ok, that is the rant of a woman who really wants a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. Let’s get back to happy thoughts.
