The last week in pictures...

Do you all use Instagram?  I'm way too addicted to it!  It's such a great way to capture life via your iPhone (and yes, I tend to overuse my phone for picture-taking!)  Since I have been short on time with two free hands lately, it's easier to keep up with life in pictures, so here is the past week in Instagram...

 I'm also thinking of ordering the add-on lenses for the iPhone... anyone have them?  What are your thoughts?  I have some great cameras but 99% of the time I grab my phone to snap pictures since little people don't hold still long enough for me to get to my camera in time!  Let me know if you have them and what you think!

SAG Awards

Did you all watch the SAG Awards last night?  I only caught some of the award show but I didn't miss any of the red carpet (clearly the most important part!)  I was SO impressed with how many fabulous gowns were on the red carpet!  I think this is one of the best overall fashion moments for an awards show - there were so few "bad" looks!  Here are some of my favorites:

 What was your favorite look of the night?  Can you believe it is FEBRUARY this week?! 2012 is already flying by - and our little guy is already 2 weeks old today!

Green Smoothie

Since having the bebe, I am trying to start a diet (something I am NOT good at!)  I have been pretty good about drinking a green smoothie for breakfast everyday!  This is one of my favorite new recipes (I searched online and tweaked it a bit myself.)  It's yummy and healthy!

Green Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
Handful raw spinach
1 banana
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (mine is from GNC)
Add to blender, mix and enjoy!

Now that I'm on my post-baby diet I can finally start to think about my favorite things again... CLOTHES!  I have been in a bit of a fashion rut for the last nine months and I'm dying to get back to wearing fun outfits again and put my inspiration folder to good use!  For your (ok, MY) viewing pleasure...

I'm really into nudes and solid colors, as well as booties like the super popular Isabel Marant ones every celeb has been rocking.  Can't wait to see you again my wardrobe!

Pink Collars

I started working on unpacking/organizing my closet yesterday (for about 10 minutes while the little guy napped)... this is one of my absolute favorite things to do!  (no sarcasm here either!)  As I started going through and organizing by style and color I noticed how I have been breaking down my shirts... this is the way I have been organizing them since high school actually! I group all of my shirts by color whether they are long sleeve, sleeveless, etc. and then organize my polo shirts by color and my button downs by color. 

The Classics

Sometimes you just can't change a classic!

I realized it has been a long time since I have blogged so I thought I would just throw out all my random thoughts (they are all over the place lately) and what has been going on the last couple of weeks...

 Avery is being such a great big sister!  She is in love with her little brother and I can't think of anything that makes me happier!

 She also has a new favorite shirt...

 Please excuse the gross picture, but I have been on a homemade dog food making kick lately.  I get super lean beef from Trader Joe's and saute it with olive oil.  I mix it with brown rice and maybe some veggies and feed it to Maggie.  She seems pretty happy with it and it is actually very inexpensive to make!

 I spotted this in Best Buy... there are no words... But answer me this: who DOESN'T need a Justin Bieber singing toothbrush?

 KCav announced she is preggers.  I'm not her biggest fan (team LC. Yeah, I still love Laguna Beach.) but she is probably going to be one hot pregnant lady/mom.

 I spotted this wall art at a baby store and am thinking of trying to replicate it for Greyson's room. I also really love the pale blue and navy blue together.

I know the Golden Globes were forever and a day ago already but I didn't get a chance to share my favorite look and in my opinion, Reese was the clear winner.  The dress is amazing and her hair is fabulous! 

That's all for now :)

I swear these baby posts are going to slow down now that HE is finally here!

Our little guy is one week old today!  He arrived at 8:28 last Monday night after our second attempt at induction.  He weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces and was 20 inches long.  We obviously think he is perfect (not biased at all!) 

 I'm in love!

Baby Update

I feel like this is what all of my posts are becoming... baby updates!  I generally don't share too much about it (I'm sketchy like that) but I thought an update would be in order.  We made it past the original and new due dates, making this baby a late one!  We also went in for our scheduled induction last Wednesday night and unfortunately it didn't work.  In fact, it did nothing.  I was pretty frustrated to say the least.  We are supposed to go in again tomorrow for another, but the doctors seemed pretty hopeful the baby would arrive on its own before then.  I'm going to go ahead and squash their hopes...

I have managed to get pretty much everything we need (luckily) and we are assuming this is a boy but why don't you go ahead and make a guess?

 Feel free to leave your idea in the comments below!

 Molly Sims announced she is pregnant with a honeymoon baby this week.  She was spotted at the Art of Elysium event in LA this week looking like this.  I struggle to make it out of sweatpants these days.  Le sigh.  Some people make pregnant look too good!
