My best friend in the whole world is in labor right now (actually she has been in labor since yesterday morning!). I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the news - they still don't know if it is a boy or girl!ba

Dress To Impress

{via Audrey Hepburn Complex}
I need some work dresses! My dresses that I own are either good for going out or hanging at a backyard bbq. I just got back from doing a little shopping...and no luck - couple shirts and some pants. Why am I having such trouble finding a couple 'right' dresses?!?

I recently downloaded the Hipstamatic app on my iphone and have been having a blast with it. While I am still trying to figure out the different options (lenses and film etc), I will try and put together a collection of photos soon to share!

I am DYING for a vacation right now. (Un)Fortunately, summer is my busy time for work, so there is no time at all to get out of town for some much needed R&R. Instead I am left dreaming up where I can escape to once the weather starts to turn sour here in Chicago... Maybe Greece...or New York...or the Caribbean...or London...or even Mexico...

There's No Place Like Home

Ok, I know the Hunter boot thing has been in for a while - not only are they functional, they are also incredibly stylish. This past weekend at Lollapalooza I saw a girl wearing the original short Hunter boots in glossy red. She had them paired with an adorable navy halter dress. The rain might have put a damper on the morning, but looking at her playful rain wear put a smile on my face. Add to my wishlist - check.


Apparently I love all pink rooms. This one is done SO well though. I love the girly pink walls pared with elegant x stools, modern art work, and a tribal area rug. The coral lampshades and stunning pillows are the perfect finishing touches. Love love love.

Yellow Cake

Isn't this cake so pretty?!? It is Martha Stewart (of course). The pattern is such a perfect take on the architectural patterns that are so popular right now. The butter yellow color actually invites me to eat it...I wonder what flavor is inside...

I went to a friend's lake house in Wisconsin this past weekend. It is my favorite weekend of the year. Forget all your worries...After grilling up some meat for lunch, we took the pontoon boat out to the middle of the lake for a mid-day swim. Dinner brought a whole new array of grilled meat (Mitch's skirt steak is a personal favorite), tasty salads, and homemade sangria (with fresh grated ginger and marinated peaches). We danced, we sang, and of course we drank. I can't wait until next year.
