TGIF Friends. I am so ready for the weekend. I know what I will be doing, watching Downtown Abbey. Matt and I finally started it this week and we are hooked. I have to admit when I heard all the hype about it, I thought PBS and a period show no thank you. I don’t really like TV shows with accents or set in the past. I really had no interest in. However after watching episode one Matt and I were both pleasantly surprised and engrossed. Can’t wait to get sucked into more of the drama. Still not as good as Breaking Bad, the best show ever.
Remember my favorite BB Dakota Dress from last Fall- the Noland Dress?? It sold out in like a day before, but right now you can preorder it for Fall in the new colors black or hunter green. Plus Social Dress Shop is graciously offering 20% all full priced purchases with code DRESS. That brings the dress to $63, such a steal. I lived in my red one and now I preordered a Hunter Green one for Fall:)
You can preorder HERE.
Anyone as big of a fan as the book (and movie) The Devil Wears Prada as me? Well Lauren Weisberger just came out with a sequel to the book called Revenge Wears Prada The Devil Returns. I downloaded for my kindle Tuesday (the day it was released, I am such a book worm) and I have been flying thru it. It is such a good and entertaining read so far!
While at dinner the other night, Jess from Bare Beauty Blog was raving about Coconut Oil and how great it is for your skin and removing eye make-up. I usually just use olive oil but now I am going to go pick up some Coconut Oil to try out. Anyone else use Coconut Oil for other purposes, supposedly it is a great hair mask too!
I need some input on strollers, that is really the only thing new I am going to buy for this baby. We had the Bugaboo with Sterling which I liked- but we bought the floor model and it is just not in great condition, I would not want to put a newborn in it. Plus as much as I liked it, I didn’t love it. It was not easy to fold down and then put back together. It is great for now, as I leave it assembled on our front porch and use to stroll Sterling around the block but not ideal for newborn use. I am not going the double stroller route, I think Sterling is old enough to walk in places now and I will use it for excerise while he is in school.
I am thinking about the Uppa Baby, The Bob, or the City Select. I want one I can exercise with (mainly walk but lightly jog), and one that is easy to snap together and put an infant seat in. Any advice or other strollers I should check out?
I have said it before but I am a repeat offender when it comes to outfits. If I am seeing different people I frequently wear the same outfit two days in a row. It is easy I just lay it from the night before and can get dressed quickly. This is my repeat outfit this week that I wore three days in a row:)

Now that I am not really drinking alcohol I have really gotten into lemonade. Its funny I never really drank it not pregnant but now I can’t get enough of it. I like the fresh kind with bits of lemon pulp and not too sweet. I came across this recipe and can’t wait to make it especially since peaches are in season and so good right now!

Have a great weekend!
