You may remember this top from last summer. I decided to remix it up a bit and style it for spring. This was taken in our backyard during our trip to Nola, but figured it was a perfect outfit post leading into Memorial Day Weekend. I am headed out of town again this weekend…this time on a girl’s trip for my BFF’s Bachelorette to Deep Creek Lake, MD. I tell you, this lady couldn’t be further from a Bridezilla and she has chosen a pregnant woman’s dream of a Bachelorette celebration. A nice house near a lake with all your besties, cooking dinner, wearing sweatpants, and drinking wine? Ok fine, maybe I can’t have the wine…but I will take all the rest! And I will selfishly admit that I am glad I won’t have to squeeze on a mini dress with this baby bump and strut awkwardly into a club (although honey, I WOULD have done that for you too!) But thanks for taking it easy on me ūüėČ Although I will miss my little munchkin once again this weekend, it will definitely be nice to have some girl time and at least my boys will get some quality time together as well.

What are your plans for Memorial Day Weekend?

Make it a good one!

{24} Lately…

10173625_10102694714936518_694743385761873635_n

Lately I’ve been…

reading  The Girl on the Cliff by LucindaRiley.  This book came on recommendation from a friend, and so far I am super captivated!

writing  A packing list for our trip to the lake house in New Hampshire.  We leave tomorrow, and I cannot wait!

listening  Let me start off by saying I know this song is kind of terrible.  But something about this song and my old club days makes me not hate it.

thinking ¬†Time is going so fast! ¬†Nico hit two milestones this past week. ¬†“Crawling” – or his version of it at least. ¬†He’s basically sliding all over the apartment (including underneath the table and chairs as seen above‚Ķwe are in trouble), and I told the hubby we should at least strap a swiffer duster to his belly so the floors get cleaned at the same time. ¬†I kid, I kid. ¬†He also pulled himself up to a standing position all by himself on Monday. ¬†I was at work, and I missed it, which sucked, because as a mom you never want to miss those first moments. ¬†I am so happy for him and all of his latest accomplishments, but it’s starting to hit home that our little baby is getting bigger, and it’s impossible to go back in time to when he was tiny.

smelling  Not much of anything, because I have been all stuffed up with sickness this past week.  Meh.

watching  The Bachelorette is back!  Any early guesses of who will win?

wishing  For clear skies in New Hampshire, so we can view all the pretty stars at night again this year.

hoping  Along the same lines…for sunshine this weekend!  The weather is looking a bit gloomy thus far.  I know we will still have fun catching up with our friends, playing board games and watching movies, but if possible, I would prefer to be hiking and exploring!  

wearing  Casual today in Paige denim, black and white striped tank, Camo jacket, and New Balance tennis shoes

loving ¬†The fresh Hazelnut coffee we have been getting from Fairway. ¬†I’m not much of a coffee snob. ¬†I usually drink one cup a day, and the Keurig system works for us. ¬†I had never really thought much about the freshness of the K-Cups, but until you have had one of the new Fairway One Cups (which foregoes all the bottom plastic as well for the green folks out there), you haven’t had a good¬†K-cup!

laughing  At this woman who was just a LITTLE bit excited to be a grandmother.

wanting  A recommendation for a new spring nail polish!  Who has one?

needing ¬†A new bathing suit for summer, but dreading the shopping process this year. ¬†None of my old suits fit my current body, so it’s back to the drawing board. ¬†I have a couple ideas in mind in terms of styles, so hopefully I can find something that works.

feeling  Still feeling pain and popping in my thumb a couple days after the Cortisone shot.  Hoping it kicks in soon, or else I may need another injection and possibly surgery.  Oy.

craving ¬†Fresh fruit. ¬†It’s almost summertime, which means all my favorite fruits will soon be in season!

clicking ¬†Around on the¬†Father’s Day gift hunt‚Ķit will be here before we know it!

What have you been up to lately?

Hope you all have a great week!

Love,

Gina
