in that oscars haze...

anyone stay up last night and watch the oscars?  the hubs actually likes watching it so we put the little one to bed, made a healthy dinner got coldstone creamery and parked in front of the tv.  i must say i enjoyed E's pre-show, red carpet- giuliana, kelly osborne & ryan seacrest's shenanigans.  (i love giuliana after watching her show guiliana & bill and vow to always watch her pre-show because i feel like we're friends, that's normal right?)  so i think my favorite was mila kunis.  ugh!  spot on dress color and that lace around the neckline.  yummy.

also loved gwenyth paltrow, jennifer hudson (although she could wear an old ratty towel right now and look like a million bucks), and hailee steinfeld.  i have to say, i kind of got scared when i saw mark ruffalo's wife..... eesh-and it made me kinda sad.  anyone catch that number?   

off to the gym, thank you oscar ladies, for motivating me to work it out this week.  come on pre-baby body, come back to me!!

ahhhh, it's saturday

it's SATurrrrrrrrrrrDAYYYYYY!!! (yelled in my oprah voice) what to do what to do... babygirl seems to be in a lovely mood, maybe we can hit up the shops!  she's twirling in circles in the kitchen as i type :) 

i have found so many cool shops on etsy and facebook that i don't know how much i really want to spend at the big stores.  anyone esle find that old navy's baby clothes seem to fall apart?  i have good luck with carter's and target clothes... any other quality brands/stores that i don't know about?  i think my favorite saturday shopping site has gotta be tj maxx.... just typing it makes me smile.  the hubs even likes going there and that's a big deal (b/c then i can take my time and try on all the shoes while he strolls the babygirl around ;)) here are the sweet steve madden heels i got last weekend...

i think they are the perfect mama heels for the bajillion weddings we have this summer.  low enough heel, the criss-cross detail helps keep them from slipping off and did you see the lining, EEP!!  love!

hope you all have a beautiful day :)  oh and btw, song of the day....
Ray Lamontagne, You are the Best Thing.  perfect saturday song :)

p.s. thursday, i love you.

hi lovely friends!  couple of things on this beautiful thursday... i cannot stop listening to Nellie McKay's, p.s. i love you. so dreamy and romantic.  here's a weird link that plays the song for you.  so last night i dyed my hair with that nice and easy, new foam hair dye.... anyone else get that coupon on fbook for the free box of that dye? a friend of mine warned me that it smells pretty bad and it dyed her scalp.... but hey, it was free and my hair was crying out to be dyed.  (i'm having a love affair with florence welch from florence and the machine currently so i have been going red)  so i did it and whattya know- it stunk like old chinese food and it dyed my scalp and neck pretty badly.  but the color is ok.  haha.  so there is my stellar review of nice and easy's new foam hair color.  

i made some seriously cute new medium sized bowsters last night in a funky new ribbon...
and i'm not gonna lie, i kinda want to marry them.  don't tell the hubs.  i felt compelled to buy this ribbon even though orange isn't really a huge favorite for little girls... i'm going to put them in babygirl's pigtails today :)  

and the last and most important tidbit for today.... i saw these boots on sale on amazon and i think i need to rescue them from that cold, sad amazon warehouse and let them live in my closet...

totes adorbs.  and i don't drop that phrase lightly.  so cute with leggings, skinny jeans, or with tights and a cute dress.  ugh, i. must. have.  and they are really reasonable.  i really love steve madden shoes-they are really on point with the current styles and they are AFFORDABLE.  

have a great day!  i know i will after i break the news to the hubs that i'm buying yet another thing on amazon <3
