Kate Quinn Organics

Nicole introduced me to my new favorite baby shop, Kate Quinn Organics, and now I can't get enough of it! I love all of the prints, baby girl dresses & jumpsuits, and sweet Plum Bunny line. It is all so adorable I can hardly stand it! I am about to put in my first order... I think I found the perfect crib skirt which makes me sooo excited! For those of you with little ones, you absolutely must check out the website asap :

In other news, I recently purchased a Clarisonic from the Anniversary sale. If you haven't heard of what it is yet, you are OUT OF THE LOOP! Ok, kidding. But it is big news around the Nordstrom gossip. It is supposedly one of the best cleansing systems for your face and body. A co-worker of mine has one and swears by it. It's really gentle and easy to use. I've had it for a few days now and am loving it so far! I got a zebra print one :)

the scoop

Well life has certainly been busy these past few weeks and months. Trying to keep up with everything all while still trying to enjoy what little of warm summer weather we have! Since graduating, my day-to-day has been passing at lightening speed-- and here I thought I'd get a little bit of a break! Nordstrom's been wild and crazy with the Anniversary sale (note to self: never wear heels on the opening day {or any day, for that matter} of early access shopping...bad idea!!!) My toesies & arches are still recovering.

Oh, sidenote, this post will probably seem slightly {very} scattered with thoughts and ramblings. That seems to be the way I roll these days. So much in my mind, not enough time to breathe, or pause, to get it all out and make sense at the same time. Ok, back to posting.

On to all things baby:
We recently put the crib together {we got a great deal from a coworker of mine- a white sleigh crib in mint condition- score!!}. We painted the nursery. Hoping to reveal a light shade of grey on the walls, but instead discover it looks more bluish, but still completely loving it nonetheless! Talk about calming and serene and neutral, exactly what we sought after in the first place! Oh and we did some shopping. Ok, this time, by "we" I'm referring to my momma and I, because let's face it, girls have more fun shopping. We ventured up to the U Village and had a great time getting swept away by pretty much all things baby. Came home with many adorable things including, a changing pad to go ontop of a changing table my mom has been working on for us, as well as bedding and some crafty things to make baby shower invites-- coming your way soon! The nursery is really starting to come together making this all the more real. As we put the crib together {actually how it really went was Ky put it together and I sat and watched and ate chocolate cake- he insisted, people!!}, we started to really imagine our little girl. Invisioning nights going in her room to find her peacefully sleeping {we can dream, right??} or rushing to the changing table to perform an emergency diaper change. As perfect or chaotic as it will be, I am starting to look forward to those little moments with our daughter. Speaking of the little sugarlump, she is moving LIKE CRAZY! I'm talkin' constant. It's getting even more prominent now because I can feel her while I am busy at work. She needs attention, mama! And she needs it now! We play "rock the remote" a lot, where we put the tv remote on my belly and you can literally see it getting bumped and tossed all over the place. As far as me showing, there's a little somethin somethin there, a few daring strangers have even commented lately {which I love!}. I officially can no longer rubber band my pants on. That was a sad day. But I'd say I've gained about 4 pounds total so far. Which I'm completely fine with. At times I wish there was more to show, but I know it will all come eventually so I need to be patient and embrace staying "little" as long as I can.

Woah, that was a lot.

Are you still with me?

I better give this a rest. I'm exhausted from just typing it all. Now it's time to finish reading The Help and get started on the next book! Wishing you a happy Tuesday :)
