. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Hello Monday

January 20, 2013

Hello Monday

Hello Monday.  I like you so much better when you don't involve going to work.

dress: Steve & Barry's   tights: kohls (?)  boots: dsw  bow necklace: ebay

Hello 9 degree weather.  I didn't even think about taking a picture outside today.

Hello new blog design.  I love you.  Thank you Aubrey!

Hello waving baby.  When I look at your picture you make my heart happier than it's ever been.


Hello candy hearts.  I like you even more as a pregnant lady.


Hello parenthood.  Thanks for airing an episode last week that didn't make me cry.  I wonder how sad you will be this week.

   
Hello beautiful ladies that you need to meet.

First meet Montana from Sara Montana Says


I've never met Montana in real life, but sure wish I could because I know we would be friends.  Montana is a blogger that is so easy to connect and relate to, as she shares her life on her blog.  I was especially proud when she started doing outfit posts because she is absolutely adorable.  Montana is also super talented and recently opened her shop where she sells beautiful pillows, like this one, which is my current favorite.

Next met Whitney from Keeping up with the Cyperts.


I've known Whitney since I first started blogging and I love keeping up on her life, whether it's through Sunday confessions or stories about life as a wife.  Whitney also shares some amazing looking recipes, like these delicious looking s'more bars.  Not only does she share recipes that I could and would actually make, she shares her craftiness as well.


Finally, met Erin from Read Eat Create.


Erin's blog name gives you a pretty good idea what you're going to find on her blog, and they are all things that I love.  I'll be honest, my favorite one of those would be eating, and Erin's blog is full of delicious recipes for you to try.   Erin also has some great ideas like making monthly goals instead of New Year's resolutions, or participating in project 365, where she'll try to take a picture daily to document her life.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Love the new design!!! Did you do it yourself!?

Love those boots!

I cant say I made it through parenthood this past week without crying!! Although at the time I cant remember what made me tear up. I think it was the moments between Julia and Victor. I cant believe next week is the season finale!

Ohhh - SO exciting that you get to see your little babe already!! In Canada we have to wait until 20 weeks to get an ultrasound. Parenthood always makes me cry too. I'm a couple seasons behind - so I'm not up to date on the latest. Happy Monday!
