life lately.

Loving: Mondays!! H switched to a four-day work schedule, so now he has Mondays off! I'm loving our three-day weekends together. We spent this past Monday walking around downtown, shopping and having lunch (and cupcakes!) It was fun to get out of the house and soak up the sunshine (especially now that it's getting colder).

Watching/Listening: Downton Abbey's final season (sad!) + listening to the Masterpiece Podcast -- the interviews with the cast are so interesting and I love the commentary after every episode.
Shopping for baby: Jellycats! Vi loves these sweet, soft stuffed animals. She charmed her dad into buying another one on Monday :) And I took advantage of some great sales over at Gap + Old Navy and bought Vi a few things -- including this adorable shift dress, a bright pink cardigan (under $10!), flutter-sleeve bubble dress, and a white eyelet dress.


Shopping for me: mama needs some new jeans! I stopped by Madewell on Monday and I am loving their 9" high riser skinny skinny jeans! I'm going back this weekend and taking advantage of their #bluejeansgogreen program -- donate a pair of your old jeans (any brand) and they'll give you $20 off a new pair (in stores). The old jeans will be used as installation in housing projects across the country. 
Eating: Puppy Chow Chex Mix! I made a batch over the weekend and it's already gone. It was H's first time having it (crazy right?!)...he was a big fan. I think it's time to try a few new recipes!
Planning: Things to do for visitors! My aunt and her five (!!) kids are visiting next month for Spring Break. So I'm trying to figure out fun and budget-friendly ideas that kids in the 8 - 16 year old range will like to do. I'm just hoping it'll be warm enough to go to the beach, Waterfront Park and the Battery. Locals if you have any other ideas, please share!

  1. All of those puppy chow options look so delicious! I would love to try the cookies and cream version. Have a great time with your aunt and her kids. Can't wait to hear about what you end up doing.

  4. I love Madewell, but I've still never tried their jeans. Those picks look great! We end up at the beach most of the time when our nieces and nephews come to visit, but they actually love The Alley, too! Haha not really a "Charleston" thing, but they love all of the games and it's fun for the adults too.
