mini wear

i put this in my shopping cart and was minutes away from checking out before it dawned on me that i don't know if mm is even a girl.  that's a serious case of pregnancy brain or some intuitive thinking.  or i'm just plain crazy.  

either way, hackwith design house seems to be popping up everywhere.  myself or the mini will have to be wearing something from lisa's collection soon.

7/52 + 8/52

7/52: 35 weeks.  getting there.

8/52: 36 weeks and this marks the beginning of my maternity leave.  there's nothing i love more than free time, but there's a certain guilt attached to not working.  i'm hardly going to have a hard time not enjoying this time to myself though in order to relax and prepare for mini.

mini moccs

i have a bit of a shopping problem and i was afraid that with a baby on the way i was going to be shopping for two.  luckily, it's hardly been the case.  at about four months i bought a pair of freshly picked moccasins.  and today, bought my second pair- limited edition camo, how could i not.

mm: 34 weeks- wondering how we're going to pull off this situation once you're here.  i'm pretty sure we'll all find our spots.

it had to be done.  one of the best looks from the runway so far.  my favorite collection even.  and a unisex mini look to boot.

*my friend sent me the link to this store today- really cute stuff, have to love mini

minted. has been my go to source for mass stationery lately.  really easy to use and so many designs to choose from.

i used it for baby shower invitations and then our first year of holiday cards- new years cards saved the day since i definitely missed the cut for christmas.  i'm already scoping out birth announcements since i know i probably won't be able to throw together something original with everything that will be going on in the upcoming weeks.

minted is running a challenge with west elm right now- it's an art challenge where you vote on prints for west elm to carry.  in turn, you get $25 dollars- sign me up.  minted. x west elm

nyfw 2

i'm always won over by the japanese take on vintage american workwear- chambray, bandana prints, denim and quilting- sold.  a winning combo for some mini looks.

nyfw 1

i used to despise going through runway shows and now i look forward to it- even checking back just to read the reviews alongside the collection.   i typically always like the same designers and they're the first ones i check and everyone else files after.  creatures of comfort is one of them- yet to disappoint.

 two mini looks translated from one of my favorites from the fall '14 collection.

inspired by bleubird and taking a cue from old, new & the wee one too- i'm going to start the 52 project.  i wish i had thought of latonya's idea from the get go and started at the beginning of the year, but week 5 will have to do.

mini mulf: we're at 33 weeks and counting down.  your brothers hardly know what's about to hit them.

stylesight has the most well curated tumblr i've ever seen.  scrolling through is a mesmerizing experience.

to do list

there's so much i want to accomplish before the mm gets here.  both for the sake of getting it done before my free time is a tad more occupied and because they're all mm related.

i always knit a tiny sweater for friends having babies.  i have yet to think of the perfect idea for the mini.

a dream catcher just seems like a must hanging in a baby nook.

we took a class a couple weeks ago with jo from kkibo and made plant hangers.  i want to expand on the basics learned and make a wall hanging or some kind of knotted something.

hopefully not too ambitious, but i hope to make mm a quilt while learning to do so at the same time.  i've been wanting to learn for a few years now and it's definitely something i need to try while i have time on my side.

weaving.  i'm in the middle/almost finished with my first weaving.  i didn't have a purpose in mind when starting, but my second go around will hopefully be baby centric.
