week nineteen

Well, folks, I've reached week nineteen here in baby-mama-to-be-land and I'm oh so very happy to report that there's a little bump arriving around these parts. I love it so much, even though this means that none of my clothes fit anymore...thank goodness black stretch pants become semi-socially acceptable in public when tucked into high boots. Maybe? I'm telling myself this is the truth. This bump is also fun because soon the people at the gym won't just think I need to be there more often to deal with the gut that's suddenly appeared and they'll also know that during the classes I'm smiling because I feel this little miracle wiggling around in there and not just because I'm super excited for another sprint rotation to Bieber's new Christmas song (although maybe I'm smiling for both reasons?) Also? Also this bump is fun because there's a baby in there! A baby! And there isn't a skinny jean fitting into in any dressing room in the world that would replace the sort of happiness and thankfulness I feel about that right there.

Lots of Friday and Merry Christmas love to you!

colorful pops

I spotted these Herringbone bags on one of my favorite blogs this week, Oh Joy. Good gracious almighty, aren't they stunners? I like very, very much.

sweet downloads from shanna murray

I've met many a'sweet people in this industry during the hours (and hours) spent at gift shows and craft shows and general online hanging out, but few are as genuine and filled with awesome as Shanna Murray. Check out these sweet printable gift tags she's offering on her site (all proceeds donated to Oxfam). I think they are just the ticket to finish off my little Christmas cheer packages.

stila cream blush

This is my new favorite I will never leave home without you product. It's cream blush. I got it in peony. I know, I know...that word "cream" before "blush" makes it sort of terrifying. Believe me, I too have wound up looking like a cabbage patch doll left in the hands of a two year old with access to mommy's make up bin when I've tried cream blush before, but this stuff? This stuff is sort of magic.

Thanks, Bec, for showing me this goodness!

love letters

Maybe I'll just post about sparkles for the rest of December? Or just for the rest of all time? Yes, yes that sounds about right. Aren't these sparkly letters just cute?

Aren't these sparkle stars just happy? Wouldn't they be perfect for gift-wrapping or stringing as garland or, I don't know, on your computer or something to just keep you full of sparkles all day? I think so.
