Here’s what’s currently happening in our house…

Avoiding – packing. I hate packing. And we leave for San Francisco tomorrow. Cue panic mode. BTR made this map for our Sunday in the city. I’m not sure what the colors mean, but I’m pretty sure I’ll meet my FitBit goal that day!

Chasing – Jude is into EVERYTHING. It’s adorable. And killing me softly.

Crazy kid. But oh so adorable too.

Eating – BTR made taco soup last night and it was delicious. Can’t wait for lunch leftovers today!

Loving – BTR and I don’t usually do big gifts for Valentine’s Day. His birthday is the day before so we usually do dinner that night to avoid the crazy crowds on the 14th. Since we are going to San Francisco this year we didn’t make plans for gifts. However I may have picked up these two lovelies for myself. ;) I’ve been eyeing this bracelet when I kept seeing it on Sheaffer’s blog. And I’ve wanted this coffee mug from Ashley Brooke Designs FOREVER. So when coupon codes for both of these popped up, I couldn’t help myself.



Watching – Speaking of Sheaffer, she does great Bachelor recaps. Her nicknames for the girls are hilarious and I find myself calling them by those names. I’ve also been reading Sharleen’s Bachelor recaps. She has great insight because she was on season 18. Are you watching the Bachelor?

Designing – Every since I had Jude I haven’t been designing like I would like to be. Luckily our best friends are having a baby and I offered to make the invitations for their shower! I’m so excited with how they turned out and hopefully this gets me back into the swing of designing more regularly.

Okay I’m off to avoid packing a little longer. Maybe all my clothes will just magically appear in California. That’s possible, right?

    Love that mug! And I’m so incredibly horribly jealous of your San Fran trip! That’s amazing! I’ve never been there, but have been dying to go. Please take a million photos so I can live vicariously through you!

    Have a blast in San Fran! My sister gave me the cutest mug from Ashley Brooke Designs, it is now one of my favorites. My guilty pleasure is the Bachelor and love reading Sharleen’s recaps too (and Desiree’s). Xo, Stephanie at
