In between all of the rain we have had this spring, somewhere in there was a sunny day. These flowing pants were perfect on this day paired with a tank, some shades, and a few baubles. Dressy enough to look like a human being and not portray my usual tired mom-vibe, but not too dressy that I couldn’t run around and climb things with my toddler.

These shots were actually taken in my parent’s yard over spring break with the trees in full bloom. It’s stunning there this time of year. My Dad is quite the photog, wouldn’t you say? He puts up with me, and we got the shots in before everyone woke up from nap time crying so there’s that…

Can’t believe Memorial Day Weekend is already right around the bend. Looking forward to a busy, exciting summer ahead. And speaking of that sun…it’s back out today ūüôā

Happy Hump Day!

XO,

Rainy Days Can’t Get Me Down

These photos are from Memorial Day Weekend before our ride down to Philly. ¬†There’s nothing like bright colors to shake you out of your rainy day gloom. ¬†Luckily, the weather got nicer later in the day, and we were able to enjoy an awesome cookout with friends.

This past weekend, I was on my own as the hubby went on a biking/camping excursion. ¬†I spent the weekend doing a little housework, celebrating my neighbor’s 1st birthday, had dinner with a close friend, went to a 90’s themed birthday celebration, and lounged at a soccer team BBQ. ¬†Last night when the hubby got home, we chilled outside enjoying our amazing garden on what was a gorgeous night, and just caught each other up with our weekend stories. ¬†I have to say, I’m super happy it’s summertime!

Hope you all have a great week!

{9} Lately…

lately9

Lately I’ve been…

reading¬† Just finished The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg which I strongly recommend to everyone. ¬†Currently reading The Weird Sisters¬†by Eleanor Brown. ¬†It’s decent so far.

writing  A birthday card for a special someone.

listening¬† I’ve got a Mumford & Sons station on Pandora at the moment. ¬†Fun tunes from Passion Pit, Cold War Kids, MGMT and the likes.

thinking  About the fact that Tissycole and Lisa are coming to visit tomorrow!!!  Super excited!

smelling  The rain.  Is it weird that I could smell it before it even started coming down?

watching  The always fabulous Rachel Zoe Project.  Dying over the fashion weekly.  Also just started watching the Real World Portland.  Yes, I still watch the Real World.

wishing¬† For sunshine. ¬†We were so spoiled at the beginning of the week with warm temperatures, and I’m wishing for them back this weekend!

hoping  That the laundry will do itself.  No?  Not possible?  Oh well, I tried.

wearing ¬†¬†My “Amaze” sweater from ASOS (now on sale!) with an Old Navy poly button-down underneath. ¬†Black skinny jeans from Motherhood. ¬†Leopard print rain boots similar to these. ¬†Red Haute lip from Lancome.

loving  I never realized how much you can love someone you have never even met.  So excited for my baby boy to get here in September, and so in love already.

laughing  At the fact I actually tried to straighten my hair this morning.  The hair in the photo above lasted all of 2 minutes as I stepped out into the wind and rain this morning.  You know those days where your umbrella decides to flip itself out over and over again?  Did wonders for my hair today.

wanting ¬†To finish the friendship bracelet I started making over a month ago. ¬†My 4th grade skills just aren’t where they used to be…

needing  To paint my nails tonight.  They are in dire need of some Essie love.

feeling ¬†Excited for the girls to get here this weekend! ¬†Can’t wait for a weekend of shopping, photographing and girl talk.

craving¬† Strangely enough, I am not getting any weird pregnancy cravings. ¬† I mean, I want ice cream…but I always want ice cream. ¬†Nothing new. ¬†I haven’t started liking condiments, so I think my appetite is relatively the same.

clicking  Through fashion blogs of expecting mamas.  Trying to figure out some tricks to looking chic while prego.

What have you been up to lately?

Happy Friday!

Love,

Gina
