Little Love Notes

Park-and-Cube_Alice-Olivia_full-maxi-skirt-black-white

Dear Alice and Olivia ball gown skirt, I could really use an excuse for a ball gown right about now.

Dear secrets of a not-so-glamorous weekend, I’ll actually be rocking harem pants and a tank top as I tackle my apartment organization.  This whole pregnancy thing has suddenly given me a burst of energy, and I plan to take full advantage.  First, we conquer the living room, next up: the nursery.  Wish me luck!

Dear Zach Braff, my heart broke a little watching your new trailer for “Wish I was Here” and I’m not even sure I know what the movie is about.  Either way, looking forward to a gorgeous soundtrack and story to match.

Dear prettiest printed maxi dress I ever did see, you should fit right into my Spring wardrobe.

Dear headed-to-a-music-festival, (1) I’m totally jealous, and (2) you need to make yourself a DIY flower crown, stat.

Dear baked chocolate donuts, if I make a batch, can I finish every last one of you (with the help of hubby, natch) before Monday night’s Passover dinner?  (And then I swear we’re flour free … cold turkey for the week.)

Dear Louis Vuitton … err, Michelle Williams, not sure who to blame here for leaving me drooling over the new Spring line of handbags and accessories.

Dear baby, this week, you’re the size of an eggplant and my heart bursts at the thought of you and all your skinny eggplant glory kicking around in my stomach.  Mamas:  at what point did you start shopping for nursery furniture and registering for baby things?  (FYI: this week we hit 25 weeks.)

      Yay, thank you so much!! Happy weekend. <3

  3. I too, look forward to your Love Notes! And I would start getting your shopping list together now…you are moving into baby shower time and family and friends will want to know what to send you! And when you get further along, the full blown nesting mode kicks in and you will be too busy washing and cleaning everything! 🙂

      I am so glad to hear that!! And yeh, I think it’s officially time to get started. The plan is to start at least looking this weekend, but I know we need to register sooner rather than later. 🙂

  4. I don’t know much about love notes but I just stumbled onto your youtube video and you are so funny!! More youtube videos!

    Regarding the nursery. I think I waited until I was 28 weeks before I started seriously planning the furnishings. I mean, obviously I had been fantasizing about it for two years before I was even pregnant but I was too scared to buy anything until I was at the 28 week mark.

    But I would definitely start planning now, that way you can put some of the smaller items (or larger, depending on how generous your guests are) on your registry. Don’t forget to take into account that there could be a 2 month wait on furniture. Truth be told, the only thing you really need before the baby gets here is a crib with a mattress and sheet; or even a bassinet will do. I have the bloom alma mini crib and love it. My daughter is still in it (sleeping in our room) at almost 10 months and she has yet to need the nursery, but obviously getting it done before the baby arrives will be much easier on you.

    And if I can give you some advice- drawers are much easier for storing infant clothing than hangers. I made the mistake of getting a dresser with cabinets instead of drawers. The couple of drawers it does have are crammed with clothes, whereas the cabinets are almost empty. I thought I would be using the little square bins but they just aren’t practical. Lots of drawer space!

      You are so sweet + that is amazing advice! Her room doesn’t actually have a closet so I was worried I would need to buy a dresser with closet space … but now I’m thinking, maybe not. Definitely need to start furniture hunting this weekend! 🙂

  5. Well, I think you will still need something to hang little dresses on. Whether or not you want that visible is up to you but i’ve been seeing nurseries lately where the little dresses are hung on a “branch” or rack.
    Attaching a couple of examples from here http://christinedovey.com/tag/projectscarlett/

    or you could just do a floating shelf with a bar/ rod under it if you prefer something less “rustic.”
