Mini-Skirt Matters

It's the first week of fall, yippee! I'm ready for all my fall fashion.....well, maybe when it isn't 100% humidity in the north east. Though, I may have just the perfect pair of culottes at the ready for this kind of transitional temperature/warfare.

I'm excited for a weekend away in NYC (this weekend, eeeeeek), but also kind of nervous to leave babe behind. Equal parts beyond ready for some time away, and gee, maybe a chance to read a book or something, and likewise quaking with fear. Might be just what the doctor ordered for everyone when all is said and done. That's what I keep telling myself, anyways. 

Another thing that has me quaking in my boots- I signed up for my first half marathon! It's now or never with the last five baby pounds and this ought to be the tipping point right? I went for my first 6 mile run in ages yesterday and well, let's just say I am hurting as I type. I have two months to get half marathon ready. Lawd have mercy.

Last but not least, we had little D's first birthday party this weekend! It was filled with great friends, neighbors, crepes, cake, and family, celebrating this little wonder of ours (peep some pics on Instagram). All my lofty goals of taking beautiful shots throughout the day were cast aside with last minute prep and chatting with guests, aka, living in the moment. Sometimes it's more important to set the camera or social media aside and just experience the day, right?

Oh and random tip of the day, cami's from Costco are kind of awesome. Variety of colors at just 7.99 for two. They have lasted me from maternity to post with ease. I buy two more every time I go. Wearing one under this sheer top for good measure.

Mangia! Pasta, Pasta & Pasta

Check out Comfort Food Perfected: Pasta, Pasta, & More Pasta!

by Noelani at Foodie.com

There's a reason why pasta is pretty much comfort food perfected. The temps are turning cooler and my mind is turning to carb loading now that my bikini is no longer necessary;)

I hear fall knocking at my door. Which means......time to start digging into some major comfort food. This is a round up of some of my tried and true dishes and a few I can't wait to try for the first time.

Looking forward to my Sunday suppers, standing over a pot of bolognese, a steaming hot pasta, and gorgeous smells drifting through the house. Mangia!

Lacy & White Athe

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Spoon, Do You off their new album They Want My Soul. It's all solid. Black Prairie, Bleed it Out. Like Jenny Lewis (actually a side project from some of the Decemberists) met a little honky tonk.

What: As in, what went down this week/end. I hear fall and labor day weekend knocking at my door. Where did you go summer? We celebrated the lovely wedding of two friends who did it all perfectly. Yard games. Catering by East Coast Grill. And in lieu of a cake, donuts on donuts from Union Square. Hallelujah!

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

Uniqlo finally debuts locally, with their first store set to open Friday the 29th in the Natick Mall. Rejoice!

Auction-holics, we have a new platform to track online sales from the likes of Skinner, Cowan's Leslie Hindman and more. Check out BidSquare.
