on mobiles & such

I had a paper bird mobile when I was an itty bitty babes...consequently my first word was 'bird'. My bird mobile fit my parents style perfectly....lifelike 3-D paper birds twirling above me (nothing cheesy or tacky...they would never--mainly because I don't think they would want to stare at it!).
Now I find myself getting to pick out a mobile (yay, fun!) and feeling like it's an important decision, given that it may just inspire baby's first words!
Bear with me parents...because I really like that brightly colored hot air balloon mobile...I really do!
The fish mobile is beautiful, I would near consider this actual grown up decoration. I do love grown up decor in a baby's refreshing. And nostalgic, because Wes' dad was a fisherman when Wes was little! These being fond memories for Wes, a fish mobile would be sweet!
The Hex mobile is just pretty & modern (not a front runner for me) but pretty non-the-less.'s near impossible for me to pass up anything olive colored. I'm like a moth to a flame.
Lastly the Clara Von Zweigbergk Themis mobile is perfection. It appeals to everything in me....color, shape, clean lines. It's perfection......but what would baby's first word be...'polyhedron'? (nerd alert!)

help me out peeps!!!

:: peace & love ::

*Wes' fav...likes the potential for baby's first word to be 'polyhedron' (of course).

9 years of L-O-V-E & counting.

{ @ a NY family wedding in 2003 or 2004....can't remember }

Happy 9 years with you my love.
It seems like yesterday that we met...not a day goes by that I don't wonder how I could ever love you more...
then I do
You are the cream in my coffee doll, the bacon to my eggs (i don't eat bacon...nor do i particularly care for eggs at this stage of pregnancy) but you get the picture.
I won't get too mushy on ya, but let's just say that I love this guy a whole lot.
I can't imagine my life with out him, and am so excited to be starting this little family (cinnamon gummi bear) with him.
Let's go live in a shack on the beach somewhere....ill lay in the hammock...and let baby run naked through the waves.
what'd you say?
thank you a million times over for being the most amazing husband, love & soon to be babby daddy!

you're the bees knees!

what if...

I went on a leisure bike ride.
with that FAB-TASTIC (yup) bike.
sassy red lips
those retro shades (which i saw on a client the other day...she looked marvelous)
that insane bag (diaper bag???) I think so...currently sold out....MUST track one down. a.s.a.p.
and Tom's, spring line has these faded twill versions..must.

just what if...

i think everything except the bike might actually happen...that sucker is not for pregnant gals on a budget..that's for sure!

:: peace & love ::

p.s. baby update--we went to our second dr. app today....our nurse couldn't find the heart beat with the Doplar (??-sounds fancy), so another ultra sound...FOUND IT, and it was wiggling about in there like mad! Wes thinks it's going to be a pro athlete.....I kinda think it's a boy!?!?

p.p.s Much inspiration for the bike & bag from a new favorite blog, Wit + Delight (love).

Love, sweet Love

{ For Like Ever print, rainbow }

Happy Valentine's Day loves!!!!!!!!!!
My heart is bursting with love this V-Day, I am so incredibly excited to join these mythical ranks called 'parenthood'!
I always thought that to feel comfortable during this exciting time I would want all my ducks in a row (so to speak), and they are anything but. One duck is over across town, you get the picture. Regardless of the chaos (although it doesn't feel like chaos), I am happy. I am excited, and bursting with joy. I have a husband that I love more everyday, I have parents that are by far the two most amazing people I know, and I have friends that have been so loving, helpful and generous (maternity clothes, books, gifts etc) how could my heart not feel full?
I have peace of mind knowing that things will fall into place, settle down, work themselves out (and hopefully before August 28th!) ;-)
Hope your LOVE day is full of just that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:: peace & love ::

p.s. it's raining here....and it's just lovely!!!!! We've got the fire going, a good breaki in our tummy's and on our way to seeking out the best cup of hot cocoa in town!!

hungary? have some cake!

Umm.....words cannot even describe the immense joy I'm experiencing just looking at this cake.
Go HERE (you must!) to see the tutorial, and more amazing rainbow colored pictures!!
I need..need..need (ok, sorry) this cake in my life. I don't even need to eat it (who are we kidding) just staring at would suffice.
I smell a project for a very sweet event that will be coming up in the next few months (more on that at the end of this week!)
omg...pure amazing(ness).
Happy Monday kittens, it's a beautiful one here on the Central Cost :-)

rose gold handcuff bracelet? yes, please!

I found this little delight on under 'In the mood for Valentine's Day?'
well, yes, I am.....
but if you could help me understand how I am supposed to justify $10,200 that would be super!!
Actually, who am I kidding, justifying it would come after actually being able to entertain the idea of buying it. The idea of actually buying it has not crossed my mind.
But lets just love on it a little bit. What a lovely piece of arm candy.
p.s. Rachel Zoe purchased this bracelet for herself (for her and Rodger's) anniversary in one of their show's episodes! Which makes me like it even more for some reason. Can't help but love that show....bc it's b-a-n-a-n-a-s of course!
