we are expecting to lose power tomorrow night. we are on the eastern shore and they already evactuated ocean city and parts of our town. but i am excited for snuggling and reading books by flashlight...

August 26, 2011 7:49 AM

Good Luck, I hope it doesn't hit you guys to hard :)

August 26, 2011 7:49 AM

Hope you get through it ok :) .


August 26, 2011 7:49 AM

stay safe and enjoy that pie!! :)

August 26, 2011 7:49 AM

Who would have thought that moving to DC would send you straight into a hurricane AND an earthquake!! Craziness!! Send some of that rain down to Texas! hmmph.

August 26, 2011 7:49 AM

Heck... the pie is all I'd really need. ;)

August 26, 2011 7:50 AM

These photos are GORGEOUS. I love, love, love the one of the coffee cup while you're laying down. Hmm... We're only supposed to get a lot of rain where I live in VA but maybe that's still enough excuse for a pie?

August 26, 2011 7:52 AM

Stay safe :) Enjoy that delicious pie! Yet another excuse for a great weekend in.


August 26, 2011 7:52 AM

Pie looks out of this world! Be safe! Nothing like moving and have to experience an earthquake and a possible hurricane... life is an adventure!

August 26, 2011 7:57 AM

You relocated to the East Coast just in time for some crazy, freaky weather.
Lucky you. ;)

August 26, 2011 7:59 AM

I like the way you prepare! we are getting the heck out of Manhattan, our neighborhood is suppose to be totally flooded. Stay safe!

I want that pie!

August 26, 2011 8:00 AM

We're going into the weekend with a list of supplies to pick up before Irene heads our way Sunday/Monday and the bf has made numerous requests for baked goods if we're going to be housebound all weekend. Stay warm and cozy and enjoy that pie!

August 26, 2011 8:00 AM

Looks like a lovely weekend! I want your pie... looks so yummy.

August 26, 2011 8:00 AM

Look at you! My bf got string cheese and canned tuna and thinks we're prepared. Silly boy. Good thing I have a crank radio, granola bars, and water stashed away. Be safe!

August 26, 2011 8:01 AM

The pie looks awesome! I hope you guys stay safe :)

Happy Friday!

August 26, 2011 8:10 AM

Oh the joys of living on the east coast this year...never ending blizzards, tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes. Can't say it hasn't been boring! Good luck!

August 26, 2011 8:11 AM

pie looks good! love the picture of the cup on your belly :)

August 26, 2011 8:19 AM

August 26, 2011 8:22 AM

Stay safe! Usually we get the brunt of these storms down here in Florida, strange to see one head so far North.

August 26, 2011 8:24 AM

haha bring it! i hope all is ok! my husband works for quiksilver and they are having a huge surf competition in NY next week. it's supposed to ruin everything they've got going... we don't like Irene over here either.

August 26, 2011 8:26 AM

Beautiful Pictures! Hope all goes well!

August 26, 2011 8:29 AM

Stay safe and cool! I don't think we're going to get hit too badly in DC--worst thing will probably be power outages from the wind. Batten down!

August 26, 2011 8:33 AM

Buckle down chica! Hope it isn't too stormy for you. P.S. Thanx for the birthing lit. I am needing more and more references for this.

August 26, 2011 8:34 AM

i'm pretty certain pie makes an earthquake and a hurricane in one week okay. and those pants look mighty comfy. be safe!

August 26, 2011 8:34 AM

Love the photos...... Hope it will pass over you smoothly.

August 26, 2011 8:39 AM

Love your belly picture! I have never experienced a hurricane so good luck! Praying everyone on the east coast stays safe

August 26, 2011 8:40 AM

Watch out Irene... we're all prepared for you! Stay safe! xoxo

August 26, 2011 8:42 AM

I hope you don't have to use those Hurricane back-ups, but enjoy those comfy pants and tea with hubby! Have a good.

xo L.

August 26, 2011 8:42 AM

that's all you need right there. and maybe a fort in your living room. stay safe and have fun :)

August 26, 2011 8:43 AM

hope it isn't too bad! That pie looks to die for.

August 26, 2011 8:44 AM

My brother is getting married on Saturday! we're expecting Irene to be here by Sunday and crossing our fingers it doesnt come any earlier!

ps. I still havent went shopping, hope there's stuff left when I get there!

August 26, 2011 8:54 AM

have a comfy weekend. hopefully everything goes ok :)

August 26, 2011 8:59 AM

sheesh first it's the earthquake now it's a hurricane! What's next? No one ever thought DC would get this much "disaster!"

August 26, 2011 9:08 AM

that's the spirit! stay safe and dry..

August 26, 2011 9:19 AM

I am sure you'll be just fine.

August 26, 2011 9:26 AM

You move to the East coast and within the first month first there's an earthquake, now a hurricane? You guys are just getting all the excitement! Haha. Stay safe :)

August 26, 2011 9:27 AM

mmm pie!! looks like you are all set with your provisions!! good luck!

August 26, 2011 9:29 AM

All the best with Irene!

August 26, 2011 9:38 AM

The pie looks delish! I had to laugh when I read this post, because we too here in NC are expecting a visit from Irene, and all I have been thinking about is all of the yummy desserts I plan to bake! Stay safe and enjoy your pie!!!!!

August 26, 2011 9:43 AM

Stay safe and dry Sydney!

August 26, 2011 9:46 AM

You guys are in my thoughts. Stay safe!

August 26, 2011 9:55 AM

Good luck with the storm. I'm lucky enough where it's just going to miss my area. The pie sure does look delicious and perfect to eat in awful weather :)

August 26, 2011 10:08 AM

love the cozy little belly shot.

August 26, 2011 10:16 AM

August 26, 2011 10:29 AM

You found your Ball jars for drinking!!! :) So darling. And that pie looks delish. Mmmm tasty!

p.s. i want a napkin like that one. tell me where ya got the goodies??

August 26, 2011 10:32 AM

you're adorable! I didn't comment on your post about natural childbirth, but I wanted to say, YOU GO GIRL!! I went natural with my little one, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! As much as it hurt, it was even more beautiful. Being able to feel my little girl's body coming out was the coolest feeling ever! If you want to check out her birth story on my blog, feel free to!
It's definitely worth the pain, and it's so cool to see how much our bodies can handle!!

Good luck this weekend with Miss Irene!

August 26, 2011 10:33 AM

Isn't this week crazy?! Earthquake and hurricane all in one.

August 26, 2011 10:34 AM

That pie looks extremely delicious!

Michelle @ MakingSenseofCents

August 26, 2011 10:37 AM

oooh, I'm kinda hoping Irene won't hit. My plane has to land around the time it's supposed to hit the coast and I'm such a jitterbug. Poor boyfriend, he'll have to sit through all those delays with me, haha ^^ x

August 26, 2011 10:41 AM

Is that the book you said you are reading?

August 26, 2011 10:50 AM

Praying for you guys! Can't wait to see the rest of that painting! :)

August 26, 2011 10:50 AM

August 26, 2011 11:02 AM

August 26, 2011 7:32 PM

Completely understand.... Been baking cookies all day to tide me over for the storm! A bit excited for it though, a reason to relax! Stay safe :)

I really loved that shoot. Congrats on being in an "adorable couples" post. :P

August 27, 2011 5:17 PM

Stay Safe!!! Just rain here in northern va

August 27, 2011 8:18 PM

Hi there, thanks so much for the original source. This is the link that it was found under (as is listed tumblr link) you may want to let them know too.

August 28, 2011 1:29 AM

I love your posts. Love the pictures. Your blog always sends me to a good mood.

Hope your doing OK and the hurricane is not that strong!

Love from Finland xxx

August 28, 2011 2:20 AM

Thinking of you Syd. Been glued to the telly, thinking of all you bloggers in the States. Hope you're safe and sound x

August 28, 2011 12:44 PM

Hope you guys are all right xo

August 28, 2011 3:44 PM

That pie could be in a magazine, just like the rest of your blog!

Hey, I wanted to let you know that I put a link from my blog to your Carrie Bradshaw Bun tutorial. That tutorial has saved me so many times, I wanted to share it with my friends. This is my first time linking. Is this totally rude? I figured you would like it, so more people would find your blog, but maybe I'm wrong.

I love you blog. You have honestly really helped me with my style. I feel better than ever thanks to some of your ideas. And, the hubster definitely appreciates it too : )

August 29, 2011 12:50 AM

HypnoBirthing! Did it, loved it.

August 29, 2011 6:31 AM

Did pretty much the same. Baked, prepared and stocked...all for nothing.
Maria @ Orchard Bloom

August 29, 2011 8:32 AM

Weekends in are sometimes the best! I'd love a stormy weekend at home right about now.

Cute baby belly lady!
