Photo Challenge Day 2: Words and Brain Banter

Thursday, February 2, 2012

1. Yesterday I started the February Photo-A-Day Challenge--today's category is "words". it is one of my favorite quotes that I wrote out this morning. Oh what fun!
2. The Superbowl is fast approaching on Sunday...shout out to Eli and the NY Giants, for I am cheering for a Manning boy of course! I can't lie, I always get more excited about the food and commercials than the actual game-this year, I found some great Superbowl posts from fellow bloggers for food ideas...check them out here, here, and here.
3. I got the best package delivered on Monday-another Etsy find! I stumbled across Dilly Baby a few months ago and bookmarked it so I could purchase a Change N Go system-a way to conveniently transport diapers, wipes, and a changing pad all in one! I absolutely love it and the Ppoppies Amy Butler pattern is perfect.
4. Tuesday night, I finished reading my first book of 2012-Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. Fantastic read, and it's quite the pageturner. Hops from present day in Paris back to 1942 during WWII. Ready to get started on #2 this year...any ideas you can send my way would be wonderful!

5. I have been on a shopping spree lately for Little Miss-with such cute spring stuff out on the racks, how can I say no? Here are some new additions to Caroline's closet: {P.S. is it obvious I heart stripes and patterns?}
6. Opry Mills is FINALLY set to reopen in 54 days! I cannot wait for my favorite outlet mall to reopen with some new stores {Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren among a few others}...perfect indoor place to take the little one for shopping adventures during maternity leave.
I know the groundhog technically saw his shadow this morning, but if we're in for 6 more weeks of temperatures like we've been having in Music City, winter can stay around and I won't be complaining one bit! Mid 60s today with loads of sunshine-happy day!!

  6. Ummm SUCH cute clothes for Caroline!!! How fun to shop for a baby girl :). And book suggestions... Girls in White Dresses (easy, fast read but still great), Bossypants (Tina Fey's book, first 50 pgs arent that great but the rest is laugh out loud hysterical), Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me (I've read all her books and this was my fave).

  12. Yes the Superbowl is fast approaching and as someone who LIVES where the Superbowl is, I am hoping it quickly goes away!!! It's cool that half the US is here but man alive. I don't even live in Indy, just about 45 mins out of it, and our hotels are full and so are the roads.

  13. Oh my goodness! Those little spring outfits are adorable! She is going to be such a lucky little, stylish lady! I love the Change N Go, too. Just don't forget a little roll of plastic bags to store any soiled clothes (what a shame, but it will probably happen to some of those precious outfits while you're out somewhere and you'll need to stash them until you get home to wash) or dispose of some stinky diapers while you're out with your little Miss. This is the voice of experience talking... ;)

  18. I was kind of underwhelmed by the 2nd half of Sarah's Key but it was still pretty good. I recently reviewed the Luxe series. It's like Gossip Girl but set in the late 1800s. Pretty fun!
