Happy New Year



I'm ready for this

I'll be relishing our last night of quiet for awhile.
And preparing for baby boy
Y'all drink one for me
Cheers!

pink and yellow and cozy

it's nothing new
but it looks so cozy and inviting
I'm loving it today

Planning on a calm weekend
 In a peaceful and serene space

 Might be my last chance

chevron + gold

Just get in my life you fancy pants bag.

Your fabulousness is overwhelming and making me hot
{Or maybe it's the hormones}
If only you'd just be mine
I'd take you to brunch
or on a hot date
or let you live in my diaper bag

***


If you don't want to limit just lining your baby bags with chevron goodness, you can try your drawers instead.
Might even help you to keep your hanky pankies folded.

Oh and it's Thursday.
Wells gets a baby brother on Tuesday.
Let's talk about that.
Or not.
I'm getting nervous.
for reals

blue and white ikat

Blue Ikat
luuurve
Holy crap I love these blue and white ikat kitchen stools.
Drooling.

I'm loving the cozy tufted banquet and touches of blue.
 don't know for sure but that wall color looks a lot like my current fave, Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore.

 I already have the turquoise and white base, I'm thinking I may just need to add some inky blues in for sure.

NYE skirts

How was your Christmas?
Mine was fantastic.
Already thinking about NYE?
I'm going to be living vicariously through y'all this year.
Doesn't mean I can't dream about the fab things I might wear if I had fab plans.
And nothing goes better with my favorite champagne holiday than gold sparkles.



1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9


PS-
My own champagne popping will occur in exactly T-minus one week from today!
At noon.
So excited freaking out to meet Baby Boy!

Shades of Light

As for my earlier post about the ah-mazing chandy my mom got yesterday, don't feel too sorry for me, my mom wasn't the only one who scored big in the lighting department.
Enter twiggy.
He's modern, he's rustic, he's even more gorge in person.
He's a flush mount with a wrought iron cage wrapped in some blinged out gold twigs.
The actual flush mount is really more of a neutral off white and not so yellow, clearly these peeps haven't heard of the new GE pure white bulbs.

I can't wait to get him installed.

copper pendant lights

Are y'all obsessed with copper pendant lights in the kitchen?
I know I've been pinning copper/brass light fixtures left and right.

My mom has been on the search for the perfect pendant chandelier to go above her island and we finally scored.
Big time.
See ya tract lights

We picked up this amazeballs pendant chandelier for her kitchen island at Shades of Light.
 in the copper color, of course.  

It's going to be amaze, much like these inspiration pictures

my sweets

Have you ever tried to get your husband and 16 month old to cooperate for pictures outside in the freezing cold while 9 months pregnant?

While we're at it, I begged/cursed Matthew for forcing/allowing me to get in front of the camera this time too.  
I ALWAYS complain that we have no pictures of me and Wells.
Yet I never do anything about it.
And he was tired of listening.
So we're now down to the wire on having pictures of me loving on just her and her alone.
{I'm now thinking this would have been a much better idea before I got quite so big}





{and the only real belly shot y'all are getting out here for the whole world to see}

I'm not a huge fan of plastering pictures of myself all over the place and much prefer to hide behind the camera so consider this little preview your early Christmas present :)
