Surprise from Santa

Santa made a surprise visit to the apartment today and left a circus tent for Isaiah. I couldn't help myself. I saw it at IKEA today and I thought how much I would have loved having my own tent as a kid and snatched it up for him.
 Hung some lights too;)


Happy Thanksgiving

                                                                         yes, so very blessed :)


Happy Holidays

At the grocery store today I turned to grab something and when I turned back I found Isaiah had snatched up a Santa hat and helped himself.  I guess this is his way of kicking off the Holiday season. Ho ho ho? Sure, why not.


Friday Nights

It's Friday night around here and it's a party as usual. Yes, that's an Advil bottle. I know, I know. Isaiah calls it the shaker, but tonight it was a camera. He was taking my picture ;)


These are just a few of my favorite things from my childhood.  Wow. Good times.



Just picked up this wool coat from Urban Outfitters.  Should make for a great piece this winter.


Optimus Prime

Halloween '12
I'm a little late on a Halloween post, but here you have it.  Isaiah was Optimus Prime and it was so adorable.  We went trick or treating with his friend Jack, the giraffe, and they thought it was the coolest thing ever. 


Happy Friday

One of the best things about this time of year is Starbucks gingerbread latte. Luv it!



Everywhere I look I see pumpkin flavored something.  And while all of it is tempting, I usually resist the unnecessary, but delicious treats. But, I gave into these two gems I found at Trader Joe's. And I'm happy to report both are delish.



My lil man came home early from school with a fever this week. All he wanted was for me to hold him. It was kinda sad but really adorable at the same time. Love my lil man.



What can't we do during the summer months that we now can do? Get cozy



I've developed a little obsession with homemade caramel.  After days of trying to perfect it, I finally got it right and oh my god it is amazing.  I love adding  it to my coffee or drizzling it over apples for dessert.
