I finally saw this

Home, office, repeat.  Such is weekday life with a bambina at home.  Today I ventured out for lunch and finally saw this.

Changing of the Guard

It's the end of an era!  The curtain is about to fall on 12 years of Bloomberg.  Whoever wins tonight will be the new source of ridicule for New Yorkers.  Peace out, Mike.

Cake Sidecar

What a delicious idea!  That taste would just be a tease though.  Must...have...more...cake...

Back to the Grind

First day back to the office!  Tired, but overall not so bad.  Good to dust off the ol' brain again.

an interesting specimen

I've always wanted to display these creatures in my home.  I might be the only person under 80 to be craving taxidermied butterfly home decor, but hey, i dig it.  Arting it up in this nest!

What a great summer print for a dress!

The Maine Event

Baby's first vacay!  She loved every moment.  We'll always have Maine...

Mommy's day out!  I had a lovely day at Dia Beacon to recharge my brain.

These and these are on the fantasy wish list.  Too bad I don't have a lot to dress up for this summer, but I'll be back in the adult world soon enough!

cheese envy

I haven't had dairy for 2 months for the benefit of the little one.  Once I'm back on an all cheese diet, this Brooklyn shaped cheese board will add a festive kick to the inevitable pig out.

sum sum summertime

These days I'm much more likely to be toting a diaper bag around (as if I leave the house at all!) but if I were up for something dressier, I'd opt for this lil number.

So Meaty

I completely agree.  I'd take eggplant over any meat if I were stuck on a desert island!

This is an awesome grown-up version of the friendship bracelet.

the big idea

I'm making some progress getting the essentials of the house together.  Now I need a wow factor.  This screen would do.

farewell for now

I'm officially on maternity leave!  The office is on hold for now.  It's a strange feeling, but I'm happy to have time to get things in order and nest.

design beyond reach

Damn, how hard is it for a girl to find an affordable sconce around here?!

Harlequin Multi

A little Jonathan Adler to brighten up this gloomy Monday.

I've really been feeling plus patterns lately.  Maybe this should rock my wall.

cheeburger, cheeburger

Any gift would be more delicious if presented this way.  Related side note- I just had 4 sliders for lunch and I think my belly button might pop out.  Yum.

Park Avenue perks up after a loooooong winter.

Now that it's finally getting warmer, it's time to show some toe!  I'm going for my first mani pedi of the season tomorrow.  It will be especially nice since I can't reach my toes these days.

one thing is another

Giant pinecones made from shovels.

In the mood for superfood

I think I'll go have myself an avocado.

She's got a ticket to ride

A chic rattle for the urban baby.

This cheat sheet apron might help me feel more comfortable cooking.  It's more likely to just make me feel overwhelmed to put on an apron.

Shades of Easter

Happy Easter!  No eggs were decorated in this construction zone of a house this year, but I'll file this idea away for the future.  I'm looking forward to decorating for holidays with kids.  It will help me justify my own level of child like excitement for all things holiday!

Perusing for art.  Found it.

kilim lust

I've been on the hunt for rugs lately (and sofas, and credenzas, and rocking chairs...) and just came across this glorious etsy shop.

natural selection

These gem prints are stunning.  They also come as scarves.  Hard to choose!

MCM Perfection

No amount of home renovating will get me here, but I'm giving it my best shot.

rise and shine!

I am definitely not a morning person, but these rainbow pancakes would be hard not to perk up for.

All in a Day's Work

It's always a good day at the office when you come across a sweet tumblr.

holy price tag

I'm looking forward to switching over to my Spring wardrobe after over exhausting my Winter wardrobe.  It would be nice if these were a few hundred dollars less.
