I have no idea what happened to the last 6 months. Is it a second child thing? A working mom thing? Both? Or maybe the world is just spinning at a faster rate. 😉 I just can’t believe my baby girl is almost 6 months! Eek. This is a really fun stage. Elle is super […]

A Little Luxury

Whenever I read those little bios in Harpers Bazaar about a day in life of a fabulous designer, one of the most enviable activities Ive found was a morning soak in the tub with a cappuccino ( I think that was Tom Ford). I love baths! Few things make me more excited, and more relaxed, […]

Happy Fathers Day: What I Learned From My Husband

My son has a crazy dad. But it’s that craziness that creates a balance. When I say something is too high, my husband says its not high enough, and encourages our son to go higher, faster, longer, wilder. The result is a happy, fun, engaged little boy. I remember when Miles was born, his doctor […]

Happy Fathers Day: What I Learned From My Dad

Today is Fathers Day. I feel very fortunate that I grew up with a wonderful father, who was 100% present. I took it for granted when I was younger because I assumed all dads were like mine, but now, as an adult, I understand what I treasure I was blessed with. To me, and I’m […]

This is the look! Beyonce

I’m not usually a huge fan of Beyonce’s fashion, but this is a hot look. I’m drooling. It’s simple enough, a crop top and pencil skirt, but hip and sexy. I’m not sure it’s something your everyday mom would/should be rocking, but I love it anyways

This week, Miles started swim lessons, and he did it in true Miles style. Reject, reject, reject, until he’s ready to like it. Here’s what’s really crazy, Miles is like a fish. He loves the water. As long as he has his swim wings on, he will swim in the lake all day, even when […]

Gilt.com was having a deal on a […]

Not All Pregnancies Are Created Equal

This might sound cheesy, actually, it will sound cheesy, but when I was pregnant with Miles, the whole exerience felt magical.  I felt amazing, beautiful, strong, and like I was the luckiest woman alive.  When Miles finally came, I felt the same way, and let me tell you, he was NOT an easy baby.  But […]

Potty Mouth

My son said his first bad word today.  Why is it so funny when little kids say swear words?!  I know I should be horrified, and, technically I am, but when that word came out, it was all I could do to suppress a serious case of giggles.  Luckily, I was in the other room […]

I’ve heard that this is a PR grab […]

On Friday we took our son to a Yo Gabba Gabba Concert. It was a gathering of the Seattle parent army, from the too cool Capitol Hill hipster parents to the yuppie Queen Anners, we were all there to dance and squeal with our kids. There is no better evidence of what parenthood does to […]

Gosh, Now I Feel Bad for Critizing Anne Hathaway

Ok, this will be my last post about the Hathaway/Lawrence saga, I swear, but, I just find it so intriguing. Ok, so the New Yorker published an article stating that people dislike Anne because she’s a happy girl. Our society teaches girls to hide their enthusiasm and open grins in turn for brooding introspection and […]
