She's Here!

Forgive my absence but I've been a bit busy...having a baby! She's finally here. And she's beautiful. She's the most beautiful girl in the world.

Sweet dreams Juliet, sweet dreams.

Daily Thanks

Yesterday I was online searching for a unique gift for my bf Melisa's bday and I came across a book that peaked my interest. It's called a Gratitude Journal. It lets you, or reminds you, to keep a daily record of things you have to be thankful for.

My husband and I were discussing what kind of bedtime ritual we were going to teach our upcoming little one and I remembered that my parents had me list what and who I was thankful for after I said my prayers at night. Needless to say, this list would go on, and on, on. They would fall asleep before I did! This journal reminds me of that and how, as an adult, I could use a reminder of all of the things and people I am thankful for.

Ice Cold Pops Here!

How appealing do flavored ice pops sound right about now? Recently I bought these shooting star ice pop molds and have been testing different recipes out in the kitchen. 

I just made watermelon pops (watermelon, ice, sugar, and a dash of salt) and I really don't like them :( Good news is Jason does. I'm researching some more ice pop recipes, but please pass on any you may have!

Lounge Lizard

One of the bonuses of our new place is the balcony. We have a great view of the Manhattan skyline and soon I will be lounging away with a frosty cold martini in hand while staring at the Empire State Building.

We are looking into lounge chairs and tables for the space. Here's what I've come up with thus far...a bit $$ but I figure we will get great use out of them!

From Frontgate comes this lounger for two. $2,549

Another Frontgate favorite. $1,049
Pottery Barn's All Weather Wicker Day Bed. $1,999

Finally MY favorite. From grandinroad this ultimate lounger reminds me of resting on a beach in the Carribean. $1,499

Heat Wave Hell

It is seriously hot in NYC this week. So I am trying to keep myself busy in a/c filled rooms only. This week I'm getting the 'baby section' in our bedroom ready since she's going to be sleeping in our room for the first couple months.

I got a fab bassinet from my girlfriends Ann and Kristen, so I washed her comfy sheets and dressed her bed. The bassinet plays soft lullabies and rocks by itself with a touch of a button. I also cleared off my dresser to make room for her changing pad and diaper caddy filled with diapers and Mustela products. I've also got a diaper genie and a white wicker basket for her dirty clothes placed in the corner. Luckily our new apartment has large bedrooms and we can fit her necessities and ours with room to spare.

70s Girl

Last night Jason and I started putting the nursery together and I got the chance to look at all of the baby clothes we received. I am just loving the 70s inspired outfits she's going to wear! She's going to look so fab from 0-3 months (even if she gets a little spit up on them).

Curtain Call

Things are moving slowly along with our move. Every time we think we are done, we realize we have yet another project to finish. While my husband does all of the heavy lifting I am on curtains. I need curtains for our living room windows. The room is mostly white and beige so I am looking for something that is serene with a bit of color. What do you think of these?

The Nursery Furniture

We are moving in slowly but surely. The nursery project is just underway. We've got the paint on, the crib put together and now we are waiting on delivery of her dresser/changer. I've sorted all of her darling clothes into different sizes and I think she's got enough for her and her friends! Gifts have been pouring in from friends and family, and we couldn't be more appreciative. For our baby gift my parents hired painters to repaint the entire apartment and bought us our baby furniture. This was a HUGE help for us. The babe is going to be one lucky (and spoiled) little girl!!

Here's my crib. It's the Peyton Classic Crib in white. Whatcha think?

And for the dresser/changer- Da Vinci Kalani Combo Dresser in white.

And every mom needs a rocker/slider. I chose the Round Back Cushion Glider in white from Target.
