little letters.

Sun, 31 Oct 2010 12:38:00 +0000

dear fishs eddy,
someday i'll own lots of dishes from you. someday.

 (image) (image)

dear running shoes,
i couldn't believe you this morning... you were the magic behind a successful run. my body has never kept up so well. thank you!

dear beetle,
sometimes i hate that you're a convertible. i hate that husband always wants to drive with the top down.


dear bedtime stories,
i love you.

dear friends in nyc (and chicago),
i don't know what happened to cause you all to become vegans in my absence... but maybe you've inspired me to make small changes and think about what i'm putting into my body.

dear oreos.


dear secrets that never stay secrets,
it's all just really unfortunate. and disappointing.

dear pumpkin festival in germantown,
hay rides and corn mazes? pumpkin picking & hand-dipped caramel apples?

where'd my feet go?

while my baby bump might have taken a while to show in the beginning, i think it's making up for lost time now. every morning when i wake up it looks and feels bigger than the day before. and i absolutely love it. while i might be sick most of the time and not look it, my baby bump makes me feel more beautiful than i've ever felt before.

we cannot wait to meet our little one soon. we are excited/ scared/ nervous/ scared some more and excited again. i can't wait for that moment when josh tells me "it's a boy!" or "it's a girl" and we finally meet this little blessing in person. i might have bought one too many baby girl dresses in paris this summer (ok, maybe i've been secretly stocking up for years) so i am sort of hoping for "girl" but i already know having a mini josh running around would melt my heart, too. (and don't worry, i've been stocking up on plenty of "boy" things these last few years as well. but why are baby girl clothes so much more darling? at least in my opinion...)

and i also hope that after this baby arrives, i'll have my appetite back for hamburgers. because i still love them so, even if i haven't been able to stomach looking at one since early july. :(

the big 50.

Fri, 22 Oct 2010 13:12:00 +0000

i haven't done a birthday post in forever,
but today my dad turns the big 50!
i think that warrants a birthday post.

happy 50th birthday dad!
thanks for introducing me to black licorice and star trek
and for coming to all my shows and driving me to all my lessons
and for all the fun daddy daughter dates and phone calls!
can't wait to see you as a "grandpa" in about 10-ish weeks!
our baby is gonna be lucky...

i looooove you...

i woke up cold this morning. and when i took kingsley outside to potty shortly after, i needed my winter jacket and a scarf.

this means two things. 1. it's time to break out the firewood and build a fire! 2. josh doesn't know it yet, but we're totally roasting marshmallows and making s'mores this evening, too!

*photo from last february. during one of d.c.'s numerous snow storms that left us snowed in for an entire weekend.

kingsley gets his football on.

Fri, 15 Oct 2010 15:08:00 +0000

while in florida last week, we went to the homecoming game of josh's old high school, the bolles school. wanna guess the bolles school mascot? a bulldog! josh bought kingsley a little toddler bolles shirt in the gift shop and he was a hit at the tail gate party and game running around the field with his little football. we felt proud.

and here's kingsley, looking over and admiring
bruno, the real bolles bulldog mascot!

in the magazine + cocktail party

Thu, 14 Oct 2010 22:56:00 +0000

josh and i were pretty surprised and flattered when washingtonian magazine asked us to be in their september "style setters" issue a few months ago. we did a little photo shoot with them in august at the w hotel here in d.c. and the issue came out a few weeks later. photos by chris leaman.

at the end of september, washingtonian magazine held a little cocktail party at the phillips collection to celebrate the 19 washingtonians that were featured. we had a lot of fun with friends at the party (and oh how i'm craving some of that asparagus soup they served this very second!)

st. augustine, florida

Wed, 13 Oct 2010 12:49:00 +0000

after a long morning at the beach, our little family spent saturday afternoon in st. augustine.i would like to live there someday. on st george street, to be exact.[...]

photos from a day at the beach.

the 27 week baby bump! i think kingsley and i were a little jealous over the weekend that josh grew up on this beach in florida. even though his parents moved out west when he left home for college, this is where josh is from and what he calls home. i love that when we visit jacksonville together, i get to learn a little bit more about my husband and his life before i met him. i loved driving by his old home and visiting his favorite spots, seeing his old high school and meeting some of his old friends and teachers. and kingsley loved florida too... mostly, he just loved the beach. we were surprised at how brave our little mister was when it came to the ocean. it took him about 45 minutes before he was willing to get his little paws wet and warm up to the sound of the crashing waves (at first he'd sit there with his ear perked up as he watched them and bark back at them when they were extra loud), but once he finally warmed up to the idea of playing in the waves, we couldn't get him out of the water. it was adorable. we love him, lots.

kingsley diary.

Tue, 12 Oct 2010 02:02:00 +0000

(image) "hello friends!

i am back from the beach and i have to tell you, i am already sad... i miss it so. despite what humans say about bulldogs not liking water or having the right body type to swim (sure, diss the pudgy wrinkled dog) i was born to play all day long in the ocean waves, drink salt water by the buckets and dig in the sand. it was the best weekend of my life. and i can't believe it's over.

if anyone in florida wants to adopt the cutest bully ever (must promise to take me to the beach every single day and feed me treats whenever i want-- not just when i do tricks), i am your dog. just don't tell mom and dad i am looking for new beach bum owners.

love, kingsley."

have a nice weekend! {plus our giveaway winner announced}

Fri, 08 Oct 2010 13:00:00 +0000

p.s. i took that pumpkin picture earlier this week on a walk around the hill with mister kingsley. i love walking him lately because everyone has pumpkins out on their door steps or windows! the pumpkins above are from the window of our favorite little diner on capitol hill, jimmy t's. they make me excited to carve pumpkins in just a few weeks!

we {my love, me + kingsley} are off to florida for a few days...
here are some photos we took there last year.

can't wait to introduce the beach, waves and sand to kingsley!
i have a feeling he's going to love it.


pumpkin season.

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 14:38:00 +0000

currently loving everything pumpkin... from the pumpkin sitting outside our front door to the pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cookies we've been baking nonstop at our house.

also really happy with how cool and crisp it feels outside. (glad the humidity is finally gone for a few months.) i am such a sucker for tall riding boots and big thick scarves. this is my season!

and we cannot wait for halloween at our house. mostly because it's also kingsley's first birthday. and he is going to make the cutest little ninja ever! we've been practicing our ninja moves together! he's looking good...

p.s. for those who have asked on twitter, i haven't gotten around to typing out my mom's pumpkin cookie recipe just yet for you, but this one is also really good. i've used it before (but i like to triple the amount of chocolate chips per batch!) xo

granville moores.

Tue, 05 Oct 2010 21:40:00 +0000

a little while ago we tried out the mussels and fries at granville moores over on h street with our friends. and... just like everyone proclaims, they were amazing. i don't know how many times i have thought about them since... we need to go back.

also loved all the wood beams, the wood bar and wood tables and booths.

i love when dancers mark the choreography with their hands.
but these irish dancers take it to a new level... amazing.

makes me want to break out my tap dancing shoes
and do a little time step.

nyc ladies brunch.

Tue, 28 Sep 2010 20:35:00 +0000

hands down, the highlight of my weekend in new york city last week was getting to meet up for brunch at sarabeth's with all my best nyc girlfriends who i miss terribly every single day. i feel so fortunate to have such wonderful women in my life.and, side-note, i have never had my tummy touched so much in the span of a couple of hours, either. (but it's ok, because these people aren't strangers at the grocery store.) i hope this baby knows just how much it is already loved by our dear friends. it really does mean the world to me to have such great support from good lovelies: sumaya, carolyn, sarah, marci, amanda, natalie, meg & victoria.also, everyone surprised me with a bunch of beautiful baby gifts! i felt so silly, but also really loved. this baby is going to have the best aunties soon! ^^^now baby can match mom and dad this winter! i love you, girls!!![...]

the 25 week baby bump picture. we're back from our little weekend trip up to new york city. that place really feels like home... still. and we've already been living in d.c. for a year and a half now. how crazy it always feels to drive away from nyc... through the holland tunnel and back towards the district. it always makes me a little sad. i want to say "stop the car, josh! turn around! let's stay a little longer..." but i love d.c., i do. and the funny thing is, i don't think i'd choose to live in new york city again if we had the choice. while some of the best years (and worst moments, to be honest) of my life took place while i lived there (those four years at juilliard, literally growing up there and figuring out who i wanted to be and what i wanted from life there, the best friends i made for life there, dating there, meeting my husband there, falling in love and getting married there, and then experiencing those first few years of newly wed life there), i kind of feel like the new york city chapter is done. and if we have the opportunity to move again, i'd prefer to go some place new...different. if that makes sense. but it still feels like home. and i still miss it every day. and i hope we have opportunities to visit often in the years ahead. it's a wonderful place. and we had a wonderful time this weekend, back in the city.

diana film from mexico trip.

Fri, 24 Sep 2010 10:01:00 +0000

finally got around to getting my diana film developed (and cross processed) from our trip to mexico back in much as i love autumn, seeing the film kind of makes me want a warm beach again. it's starting to make me feel confused. i guess i love summer too? maybe i just love mexico. and tacos.[...]
