take a hiatus with me

tomorrow my husband and i will welcome the arrival of our son. considering the next month or so will probably be a blur for me - i suspect i'll be taking a little hiatus from blogging. or if i do attempt to blog, i ask in advance for a. your forgiveness and b. for you to immediately disregard it. i will be sleep deprived and probably crazy.
so...while i'm taking my little hiatus - i suggest you take one as well. hiatus spa and retreat, that is...voted best spa in dallas in 2009 by citysearch. what better way to prepare yourself for swimsuit season with the hiatus steam retreat. "after a head-to-toe scrub, the entire body is enclosed in the oh-so-enjoyable aromatic steam canopy for relaxation and detoxification, complete with a 10-minute rainfall from our vichy shower. emerge with intensely moisturized, glowing skin." - need i say more? happy hiatus!

moo-ve over

here's a re-post from a blog i contribute to - childish. for all you soon-to-be-moms in's an event you can't miss.
You are the epitome of style. Or shall I say were. Pregnancy does a rather funny thing to your closet, doesn't it? Those fashion-forward pieces you splurged on not so long ago have now been replaced with garments that resemble the moo-moos your grandmother was so fond of. The old, fabulous style you took pride in, and that once garnered you glances from those around you now are gone, and the glances you get in their place are less "lookin' good!" and more "I think that lady is wearing my living room curtains..."

Can you relate? All of you expectant moms out there can take a deep sigh of relief. Style expert and Author of Bump It Up, Amy Tara Koch, is here to transform your pregnancy into the ultimate style statement!

What’s in it for you?
Why not get style tips from a pro while sipping mock-tails and getting pampered by BLISS SPA and MAMMA RIO? (And did I mention a bra-fitting and shapewear seminar by WACOAL? A car seat and stroller demo by BRITAX? Cupcakes by SPRINKLES? A chance to win a mega gift bag with must haves like a Britax car seat, Medela breast pump, Baby Bjorn carrier, Prenatal services by BLISS SPA and samples from Pampers and Tide To Go?)

I can’t think of even one good reason not to go. Staying home to iron your moo-moos doesn’t count, ladies.

double trouble

if you're anything like me, your "unmentionables" are, well...getting a bit unmentionable. have you been to intimacy at northpark center yet? i highly recommend you go. i was sized by one of their experts and it changed my world - ended up splurging on the most beautiful pieces that put my old dingy bras to shame. expecting i'll be taking another trip once Max arrives - pregnancy has already done some crazy things to my physique...and i suspect a certain two things will not be going back to the same size...or place for that matter.

lonny - loves it!

forgive me for simply re-posting images from their recent issue - but i had to post some of my favorites. it was a sad, sad day when domino died and although i can't curl up with lonny and flip the pages through my fingers - it fills the empty space that domino left behind. okay so i'm being dramatic. a common occurance. but look at the rooms and spaces below - they're each unique and showcase the home owners personality and personal style.
