life lately.


Loving: All things birthday :) I turned 30 last week -- thank you for all of your sweet comments! I was able to do yoga, take a nap, eat LOTS of funfetti cupcakes, and have a burger (or two). And if all that wasn't enough, two of my best friends from Chicago visited over the weekend! It was so fun to run around town with them and hang out with Violet. #bestpresentever

Loathing: Crohn's. It's kicking my butt lately and I'm reallllly sick of being sick. I have been dealing with a flare for about a month and when you combine that with breastfeeding and lack of sleep, I'm feeling really drained. I'm nervous my medication is no longer working so I'm going to have some tests done later this week. Hopefully we can figure out what's going on.

Looking forward to: Seeing my mom this week! She's going to come into town to spend the holiday weekend with us.

Working on: Our master closet. The previous owners installed custom shelves and drawers which are nice but need a LOT of love.

Watching: We finally finished Mad Men the other week (I loved the ending!!), so we can start watching the new season of OITNB.

Shopping: I received some Beatles albums for my birthday (thank you friends!) and I just bought another one. I also bought some more of these .... #glamorous.

Baby update: Violet was chewing on a cloth stuffed animal and she coughed up a hairball last week. I wish I was kidding! It kinda freaked us out, so now we only let her chew on plastic toys. She loves the Step 1 teether (from this set) c/o Nuby. It has soft bristles that massage her gums and help get her ready for teething. She also loves to eat her Sophie Giraffe :)

  4. I can't wait to see what you do with that amazing master closet. I might have laughed a little about that hairball - poor Violet! Also, these photos are fantastic! We live in the prettiest place. How was Boxcar Betty's? I've still yet to go there.
