Monday, January 9


Boots: Target, Pants: Current/Elliot, Top: YesStyle, Hat: Urban Outfitters, Lipstick: NARS Heatwave
We've been doing a lot of reading lately {impressively sticking with new year's resolutions all the way through early January!}. Sometimes we'll read aloud to Everett, which doesn't get us very far considering we stop periodically to coo at him all gooey like and tell him the meaning of certain words. To which he responds with a binky wiggle and a hiccup. Code for "Wow. Your mouth looks huge from this angle".  Or sometimes we'll just read quietly to ourselves, which doesn't get us very far either considering both of us will indefinitely laugh at certain parts in our books, only to have the other say "what?". This followed by a sharing of the "funny" excerpt, usually met with an anti-climactic "oh" from the other. We have different senses of humor. {Read: my book is funnier than his.}
Either way, it's been nice. A bed doesn't get much cozier than when it has two books and a baby in it. And sometimes two very large bowls of cheerios.

Hello, Sidney! You are so beautiful! I've read all of your posts! I like them! I'm happy that you have a small honey! I've read that you tried to have him almost a year. That's why maybe I like your blog. Because now my husband and I try to have a small honey too)) But we haven't yet, unfortunately. I think in near future we will be happy too. I'd like to be beautiful mom, like you! ;)

Love to read...what are you reading? Little Everett is so cute.

Sal {Daniel and I} said...

We've been reading more over the Christmas/New years break as well. It feels so so good to read a fiction book without guilt... Oh the hang ups of a PhD student...

Cute pants - I am loving coloured jeans at the moment! I've been lamenting on what kind to buy for a while now. I think I'm going to go with magenta. 'Cause I can't help but love pink.

I love reading so much. It's always nice to just turn all technology off for a little bit and just read. My boyfriend and I made the resolution to read more as well!

That hat is adorable! I wish I could pull off floppy hats.

Sounds like a marriage I want! Most women aren't thinking about that, but I can't wait to have lazy days like that with my future husband and baby!

I love the boots as well! Very cool and cute, I never find things like that target when i go.

Katie Blacker said...

Yay for reading. I have been doing more of it myself. I am just finishing up the Hunger Games. what are you reading?

super cute outfit! I love reading time :) Wish I had time to more often.

rachel renner said...

I'm curious what you are reading too :)

Liz said...

I've been reading so much since we moved to Amsterdam. It's the best way to kill time on the train. And now I'm just addicted! I'm currently reading "From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" by the Pioneer Woman and it is absolutely hilarious and so cute. Definite mood lifter! I highly recommend it!

Rachel Kaylynn said...

Love reading snuggled up my husbandie,, it seriously doesn't get much better

I applaud you for reading, I hope you keep it up throughout the year and not only January. I love reading but with all the reading I have to do for school, when I come home picking up a book is usually not my first choice. When vacations and summer come around there's nothing that can get between me and my book. Slightly envious as to how you spend your weekend :) Hope baby Everett is doing well. Have a great week!

those are some blue pants. and i like 'em.

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

and... i want to crawl back under the covers and grab a book ASAP now! happy to hear you guys are still on the New Year's resolution wagon. So far so good for me too!
p.s. because you are a style blogger, i hope this isn't too personal, but how has your body changed since bring baby everett into the world? You still have a fabulous body, so it obviously hasn't been too dramatically changed, but you are the only one running around in it every day :)

Rachel said...

Cute! Love cuddling up in bed to read books, and totally understand the funny/"what" reply, haha ;)

Jenny Cindy said...

Lovely post - you look great! I love reading about your new life as a family, it sounds so warm and cozy and makes me want to start a family of my own haha. (Even tough that's not something I usually with for =P)

Tom said...

Moments were you can't communicate something ridiculously funny. We've all fallen victim to it!

Kassie said...

Goodness.
You look amazing. Can't believe you just had a baby that long ago.

A baby in a bed is great! Love taking naps with my little one!

jessica said...

That so sweet. And I completely adore that hat!

heather said...

i bought "heat wave" at sephora yesterday and thought of you. my hubs is a little skeptical, but my mother-in-law loves it. so, score?

Nicole said...

My Songbook said...

I loved when my baby was still sleeping most of the time and we could have lounging parties on the bed- soak it up! But look forward to future cuddle sessions when he won't be sleeping but may climb all over you and give you hugs!

Ana said...

love those pants! I'm really getting into the whole colored pants movement, for years I've been a skeptic.

Cheerios and a book in bed sounds like a good idea right. Now if we could only get the baby part in there... 10 days is seeming like torture!

oh gosh, too funny! the same thing is going on with the hubs and i...besides the whole baby and cheerios (we opt for the unhealthy fruit loops). but i'm reading bossypants and every time i laugh the hubs wants the in, but he just doesn't get it. maybe i'm not explaining it well enough, ha

Shabana said...

That's such a lovely thing to do. I was just reading a book where the leading lady wants to be with a guy where they both can sit next to each other and quietly read. I'd love that too! But sounds like you got that already with a cute baby and cheerios to hoot! Good on you!

You should let us know what you're reading and what you think about it! I love book reccomendations!

Gaby said...

Ha, my husband and I totally do this with each other until I go "Aah, enough, just let me read!" :)

Liz Brown said...

I eat cheerios when I read too! In fact, I totally just decided to go buy more cheerios, because I have none at the moment.

And isnt it such a letdown when the part that tickled you so much, strikes no one else the same way. Gawsh.

❝tiana of l'esthetique❞ said...

Im in love with the blue pants! they really give this outfit something bold and fresh :) I also love how you put together a lot of really nice looks at a low price!

Chuckled out loud at your book reading dilemma (my husband and I did that through our whole honeymoon!) only to of course be asked, "what?" by him:) And then we both laughed:)

Reading. Marriage. Babies. And omgoodness good cereal. Amen.

Oh, and that outift? Gorgeous!

Urban Nester said...

Reading more often was one of my new years resolutions as well! I have been trying to read more, and watch less tv. It's hard, but so rewarding! I'm already deep into a new book, and I can't seem to put it down! Oh, and love your outfit, of course :]

I love your hat! So cute. It's so awkward when you think something is HILARIOUS and the person you tell it to is just like "... ha ..."

I love reading too but it is difficuly sometimes to find time for doing everything. And I do not have a baby yet, I am wondering how you can manage to keep on going!

Yaz said...

SO SWEET!! You are adorable! I agree with another post, I look forward to your posts because they brighten my day. I've told all of my girlfriends about your blog. Thanks for giving me an idea about how to wear one of those fabulous floppy hats, JEANS! And I have been reluctant to try the colored jean phenom, but I am now inspired to give it a go.

Katie said...

loving those blue jeans, perfect to brighten up any winter!

to read more is one of my resolutions too - even if the book is heavy & i have to carry it around with me all day, haha! I remember passing around the book Around Ireland with a fridge, each member of my family delighting into their own periodical fit of giggles as they read it :)
