hello lover: society social bar carts

part of the reason i started this little blog was to share things that i love. any friend of mine can attest that i am constantly doing this in my real life and definitely needed an outlet for all my crushes. 

have you discovered society social yet? holy cute bar carts and furniture. i feel like the bar cart is making a big ole comeback and why not...everyone loves to display that they like to have a good time, no? i love the idea of making a bar cart into a side table too (see above). multifunctional, you see.

below... some of my favorites from their line.

a glimpse.

ugh, i can't believe it's sunday again and this is the only time i have to post something. it's been busy busy at that little hotel i work at and i have been pulling weekends and longer hours...which in pregnancy speak means all i do when i come home is rest up for the next day. boring! tomorrow husband and i are off to daycare land to try and figure out the best home away from home for baby girl. oh, and doing taxes too. i know...try to contain your jealousy.

in the meantime, here are some things i am obsessing over lately...

the 'keep calm' themed baby shower my friend bee threw

these new blog finds: 
laybabylay: for the best nursery inspiration
mrs. lilien styling house: hilarious. creative. kate spade addict.

this tory burch bag for spring

nursery wall decor...recent purchases including this, this and this. yay!

i've been wearing these shoes an awful lot,
living off of white cheddar popcorn, pb&j and pizza,
reading books on how to get your baby to sleep through the night,
lighting lavender incense, (to help with the panic attacks i have thinking about never sleeping again)
picking out paint colors and fabric swatches,
thinking about summertime, 
'pinning' everything in sight,
watching baby girl wiggle around like crazy,
falling more and more in love.

{via anna wolf}

this morning
i woke up early
drank some mint tea
made myself an egg white omelet
put on jessie baylin's firesight
and read this list...

preach it.

its a lovely little sunday so far. xx

{fat girl breakfast}

dear cafe 640,
my thighs hate you. two weekends in a row of your chicken biscuits with mushroom gravy. you are so bad, but just so good.

dear baby girl,
that yesterday, that was called exercise. awful, right? let's never do it again.

dear spring trends,
sea foam green, metallic colors, and ponytails....i adore you.

dear husband,
coming home to dinner made and the table set on friday was just, so nice. thank you for the little things.

dear cuties,
i used to mock you for your size, but now, it's official. best friends.

dear contagion,
6. the number of times i have washed my hands since watching you last night.

dear steelers,
let's do this!
