the thinker

lucky lady

dress from modcloth, free people boots, a snazzy necklace from f. is for frank and a pair of tights and voila! all one needs now is hot chocolate. it must be being surrounded at all times by boys that keeps me daydreaming of girly stuff.

a fall day (if it's not raining)

fall is my favorite season for clothes! this first outfit makes me swoon a little. comfy and pretty, hard to get most of the time it seems. the top is h&m, great price. the jeans are abercrombieT, they are having an awesome sale right now. all jeans 50% off, so most of them are $40! the sweet pink flats are by dolce vita and you can grab them here for $60! ya really can'r beat this for a grand total of $125.

growing graham

it's been so magical to watch this little one learn and grow. he is 14 months old and quite accomplished already! the 7th month was an introduction to solid foods. the 8th, sitting up. the 10th month, crawling. the 11, my favorite, weaning!!! not to mention at 11 months old he also started sleeping in his own bed, yipee! a few weeks after his first birthday he began walking. somewhere in all this he sprouted four teeth. july and august have brought lots of "talking". we can sort of make out the words bath and da-da. he loves seeing his daddy get home from work, sweet potatoes, books, graham crackers, a bit of "yo gabba gabba" and a nice nap. just thought i would give a graham update! he will be doing a guest post pretty soon about the toys and books he's loved and all the ones he has his eye on!

safe sipping

one of our favorite products around here is the safe sippy. this is an awesome bottle, canteen, whatever you want to call it. graham loves it and is allowed to carry it around the house. we use the tilty cup as well, but it can't be left with graham unattended. when you turn around, he may or may not be shaking it violently upside down, resulting in a trail or puddle of wetness. :)

little AND small

I've mentioned Little Bean a bunch. It's an wondrous local shop full of kiddo treasure. Somehow I don't think I've written anything about the owner's online magazine, Small. Christine Visneau and many other creative people have contributed to making this an amazing online read. The magazine is full of kiddo activities, fashion, recipes, decor, I mean the list goes on. It's no doubt worth a look!

poster (you inner) child

these are just amazing. star wars has never seemed like a decor option in an adult home. but, these posters of "star wars" settings are stylish indeed. not only would they look great in a child's room, but anywhere in the house. the artist is justin van genderen and i spotted them here, wideopenspaces

what a simple way to make sweet little cakes. just make cupcakes and stack 'em! the icing is easy enough. make some flags and you're done! i saw this on thehappyhome

Easy Peasy

i went through the blog and did a little organizing. now if you're only inclined to look at fashion related posts or kiddo related posts, you can! i didn't even know this was an option, but now it's done. i chose pretty simple ones; home, kiddos, design, gifts, graham, party, diy, recipes, fashion. i know i'm all over the place, now you can just check out what you're interested in!
