Finding Style

Does this look work?
No, you're right, this is much better. Thank God for the right accessories. (Is it just me or does this look like a chictopia photo?)

Biggest Fans

DH played his first hockey game tonight, ever. I'm not a very good Minnesotan, as I really dislike hockey. But, there was something charming about a) watching DH skate around without falling and b) listen to the boys yelling "HI DAD!" and ask "Where did Daddy doh?" evey five seconds.

We went to Staaaaarbucks

Cookies and milk time. Why does the combination of Starbucks+my boys make me so giddy? Please note the look of concentration on their faces as they drink their overpriced organic milk. Not shown: me, eyeing my chai tea on the table.

Happy happy long weekends.


What is it about Audrey Hepburn? Her imperfectly perfect face, her impossibly thin physique, the I-can't-place-the-accent mystique? I just love her. She, for me, will always be above and beyond. Also, look at her cute can she do this without looking like a cheerleader?

Working mother, an illustration

I'm pretty sure this picture is an exact representation of how I feel as a working mother: small and stuck in the middle. But, at least, in this picture anyway, I am cute and classic too. Right?

Things I Bought that I Love Right Now

Sometimes, stuff and things DO make me happy, I'll admit. Lately, I've made some purchases that make me happy.

Bilibo thingy: thanks for being a 'good toy for kids' that I actually think my soon-to-be 2 year old will love for his birthday.
LLBean...thank you for giving me inexpensive options to my bag addiction and letting me legistimize your bags as 'good for hauling the kids snacks and toys'. In MADRAS too, for goodness sake. You had me at hello.
JCrew jacket...thank you for making me feel cute and being on sale.
Purchases, I thank you kindly.

All of the colors

Last weekend, I got the boys to settle down long enough to color. Sam decided that coloring was dull, but collecting was better.
