An especially happy Fryday to you all today! Today is the last day of school for Nicole and Emily’s boys which means the Holidays are officially beginning for all. Jenna made it yesterday to Turkey with her crew to see her parents who live in Istanbul and we couldn’t be more excited for her! Can’t wait for her recap! Here’s what’s on our minds this week:
Wearing: There are few times I love the internet more than when I am announcing a pregnancy. It makes it so fun! Thank you ALL for such kind congratulations and well wishes. It means the world to me! In case you missed it from those pics I am wearing this mock neck sweater 40% off at Nordstrom and the softest sweater I own! I have the coordinating skirt (also 40% off!) and love wearing them together and separate. The striped dress is Asos and basically a sleep sack but with that t-neck it feels more polished to me. Stools are Nicole’s, she’ll share more about those! // Also, these super lightweight Chelsea wellies are my new favorites. They’re so easy to get on and off which isn’t the case with my Hunters, but they do the same job. 30% off today with GIFTNOW!
Listening: I can’t even blame this on hormones, but Adele brings me to tears every single time I listen to her new album. That voice! I am sure my fellow road travelers are feeling real bad for me as I drive along, but I’m feeling great. Everyone needs a good cry every now and then.
Decorating: Our bunk beds backfired. BOTH our kids were coming into our bed every night and making life miserable. So Russ sawed it in half Solomon style so they both have beds on the ground and they’re loving it now. You do what has to be done in the name of sleep! Also reunited with my Bump Nest already. Hello, old friend.
Watching: I have been watching a ton of TV. I wake up super early (like 5 or 6) nauseated, so I just watch Netflix. Then I watch it again when I am super naueasted and trying to fall asleep at night. (Waiting for Unisom to kick in.) I love when they add old movies like An Affair to Remember, That Touch of Mink, Great Gatsby (Mia Farrow.) Any suggestions?
Reading: OH MY GOSH! Last month my book club read “Room” and I’ll never get over it. As a literature nerd I am just slow-clapping over what Emma Donoghue accomplished. It will rip you apart and make you think long and hard. I don’t even want to blow it, but for sure read the premise before you buy.
Eating: Eating is like playing Russian Roulette lately. You just never know what’s gonna stay down. So far peanut butter is the only trustworthy ingredient. Also per the norm I just crave my personal favorite comfort foods. I was feeling super guilty about my diet (Salads, gross. Water? Please no. Celery? Is their peanut butter on it? Maybe.) So I am so grateful of our partnership with Annie’s and getting to try so many of their organic and all natural foods. Their Mini Pizza Bagels are changing my life because they taste like the comfort food I used to eat growing up but with organic flour and tomatoes, whole grains, real cheese.
Wearing: We definitely switched climates getting to Turkey so I had to really prepare. I felt so at ease after I ordered this 7 AM Enfant Stroller blanket. Love the new grey line! // Also some of my favorite Madewell items are on sale plus an additional 25% off like the best jeans on the planet, this cozy sweater, this one too in the perfect red and this vest I’ve been sporting non stop this Winter.
!!! It’s baaaaaack!!! Don’t believe you’ll love a podcast? Listen to Season 1, Episode 1 and I promise you’ll be hooked!
Watching: Some super cool business people on Periscope!
There is so much good free information out there and Periscope is one of the many places I like to go to get really amazing people’s insight on business!
Decorating: I went crazy for Christmas. You can see my mantle here.
I love how Caravan Shoppe
has these gorgeous pieces for so inexpensive to print and make such a statement in your home.
Also I am absolutely obsessed with this bed
that’s now 30% off. If i hadn’t just bought a bed I would buy this one!
Anticipating: The holidays and spending them with my family!! So happy to be with my parents again!!!
Decorating: Some of my latest pieces picked up for Studio Forty Six! So many of you asked about the stools which are 1/2 off on Amazon right now! They’re great quality and low profile which I love. Also picked up this awesome brass + marble lamp, plaid pouf for Wintry months and these drawers are holding all the props!
Reading: Latest coffee table book is this look at luxury post WWII through the 80s so fun to flip through!
Wearing: Can’t get enough of these cocoon coats! 30% off right now, too! Too hard to pick a favorite so I got a couple.
Have a great weekend, everyone!!
