weekendy things

28 June 2014

Hello, hello. How's your weekend going? Simon worked overnight so this morning we were both like ...

... the sleepless hangover of doom.

No it wasn't terrible, really. Julia actually agreed to sleep with me and I actually fell asleep but then woke up a few minutes later to the sound of her sitting up in bed and cutting the pages of my bookS into a million tiny pieces with a little tiny pair of sewing scissors she had found in the bowels of the junk drawer. At least she didn't go for my hair, bright sides abound.

I'm tempted to tell you about the shorts I tried to wear this afternoon that ripped before I'd even had a chance to attempt to force them to zip up but ... another time. Too much fun in one post already.

Bigger and better things I've been collecting all week long for you and you alone ...

I just finished this book (again, a Hallie recommendation and she never steers me wrong) and I was a big fan. I may or may not have cried at the end which leads me to believe that I would be totally unmoved by The Fault in Our Stars. Totally. 

I'm a huge sucker when it comes to baby leggings and this shop is stocked with some of the cutest I've seen. Phoebe could totally pull off the foxes, right? I agree.

Pop Sugar kindly sent me one of their Must Have boxes a couple of weeks ago ...

and it wasn't terrible. It was actually pretty awesome.  

Pictured: Emily Giffin's new novel - The One & Only (loved it!), SACHAJUAN Shiny Citrus Body Lotion (smells amazing, ask Sebastian who has helped himself to many a hand slather), Turkish-T Beach Towel, You Smell Lemon Wet Wipes (nice alternative to my usual baby wipe route).
Not pictured: Lollies Basics Hair Ties (slash Julia's new favorite bracelets), One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ Kettle Chips (Sebastian devoured and loved), and a Native Union $15 Gift Card.

Christmas in June come and gone.

And I've added a new Bachelor/ette blog to my short list of Bachelor/ette blogs. We've got Ashley (the long and lone favorite!) and newbie (to me) Sharleen who was on Juan Pablo's season. She gives a lot of insight into what's really going on behind the scenes and you know I am just eating it up. Unhealthy as it may be.

And that's that.

I better go check on Simon who is listening to, "I Would Do Anything for Love" so I'm guessing he's either fallen asleep or fallen dead.

we'll talk soon, like always.


  1. 1. I look like Sebastian every morning when I get up. Every.morning. Sleep or no sleep. It's kind of scary.
    2. Loving the new Emily Giffin...loving it. I enjoyed "Fault in Our Stars" as well.
    3. We have heard of the clinic that your friends are going to. They do amazing work with Adult stem cells. Amazing. Unfortunately for us, Courtney has had too much brain damage due to oxygen deprivation and her cognitive skills are unknown. We helped as we could and will be keeping all of them in our prayers. Thank you for letting us know about their fund. It's always a good feeling when we can pay it forward.
    4. Palazzo pants. the best investment ever
    that is all....Hugs from VA!

  2. Just about died laughing with Julia's scissor escapades. Thank goodness your hair was not a target. Because that wouldn't have been quite so funny.

  3. Goodness, Bash looks like a teenager.
    Glad to hear you liked The One and Only! It's on my summer reading list. :)

  4. Both the Emily Giffin and Elin Hilderbrand books are on my list to read! People are wearing their shorts all ripped up and crazy now (I don't get it) so maybe you're just readying for the trend...

  5. Random question for you: where did you get the throw pillow behind Sebastian in the first pic? I love the colors!

  6. I saw those leggings on Insta this week (probably from one of your likes, actually)! Love them!

  7. I tried to donate for max but campaign has paused.. What happened?

    1. shoot - thanks for letting me know! And thank you for trying to donate! I emailed to ask but in the mean time I took the link down :)

  8. Oh my gosh, Sharleen's blog! I loved her and am so glad you posted that link. She is a great writer, too!

  9. I am loving Sharleen's recaps too! Love the insider comments and her intelligent honesty. The One and Only is on my read list. I may need to download that today before we head to the beach

  10. And I just added The Matchmaker to my list. I've never read any of her work. I do like me some Emily Griffin, though, so I'll have to look into that new one.

    The Fault In Our Stars made me sob like my middle child (she's a crier...all day long...). I've purchased another John Green book to see if I will love him as much or if it'll be more of a one hit wonder for me. (My prediction: I'm gonna super love him)
