♥ Sadie Amelia!





on may 31st at 1:45 in the afternoon, our beautiful daughter, sadie amelia,
 made her way fast and furiously into this world!

within moments of receiving my glorious, life-renewing epidural,
she was here--all 9 pounds, 1 oz of her!!-
we fell instantly in love. 





henry has been preparing to be a big brother my entire pregnancy,
and it has been heartwarming to watch the care and attention
 he paid to his sister when she was in my belly. 

now that she is actually here,
i can already tell that he is so proud to have a little sister, and 
already feeling more confident in his new role. 

...we just have to remind him that sadie is not a doll!

♥ ready to pop!

this past saturday, i met with my oldest and dearest blogger friends to
celebrate my burgeoning baby bump over endless rounds of dessert
at the langham hotel's chocolate bar! it was super delicious and such 
a treat to spend time with my favorite ladies.

at 38 weeks, my bump is on and poppin' and i have fully embraced
my round shape! this forever 21 dress is from my last pregnancy with henry,
and i was so glad to have an occasion to wear it again :)

i updated it with my favorite new kitty bag from aldo (similar!) as well as some
fabulous pink accessories: my faux gucci slides and quay sunnies!
my necklaces are a mashup old f jcrew cuts rhinestone collars as
well as a big heart from betsey johnson. all in all, i felt festive
and totally ready to taste all the yummy treats without
constriction! check out my instagram post
featuring what i ate and saw at
cafe fleuri!

♥ i love it when we're cruising together: an evening at CambridgeSide with the Charles Riverboat Company!

hello loves! 
long time, no post!
and getting through the rest of this awful, dragged-out winter. 
how about you?

thankfully, with this week's arrival of the long-overdue spring weather,
came an opportunity to to shop, sip, and sail with my favorite boston bloggers at the
 currently-being-made-over- CambridgeSide and the Charles Riverboat 

along with an interactive scavenger hunt through the enormous mall-
there was a lovely cruise on the charles river with unbeatable views,
on the loveliest day, ever!


how cute is this boat?? it reminds me of the wonkatania!

 at 37 weeks pregnant, i was nervous at the thought of
being on the water for too long in case something happened-
but i rest assured, knowing that we would only be on the river for a little
over an hour :) it was what my girl, lei ann, called a "babymoon cruise!"



the views were spectacular! i could not get enough of the setting sun on the water.


for my ootd, i piled on a couple of my signature accessories and added them
to my not-so-little black dress situation that i have had to wear at work.
i can't wait to share all my costume jewels with my little girl :)


dress & kimono: forever 21 cat bag: aldo cat ears: forever 21
