Yellow and Grey Shower for Baby Number 2

I would just like to publicly profess (for the millionth time) that I have the best friends and family around. Right before heading back to England, my cousin, Laila Eva, hosted a baby shower for me and it was just perfect. Since we don't know the gender of the bun in my belly, she used a grey and yellow color theme which I am now considering using all over my house as it was so pretty.

Before I forget to post them, here are some maternity photos that my cousin, Laila Eva, took while I was home. I was about 22 weeks here so basically double the belly size

I am incredibly lucky to still be friends with my childhood classmates. Through boyfriends, marriages, babies and cross-country moves, Tricia and Alicia have always been there for me. On my last trip home, Alicia was pregnant with Boden (who also happens to share my birthday) so I was really looking forward [...]

Breaking Bad – Soap Style

I'm a big Breaking Bad fan. Admittedly, most of the chemistry references were over my head as I avoided high school science classes as much as possible. Also, chemistry involves math and I am a self-diagnosed numeric dyslexic so it was simply out of the question for me.

Betws-y-Coed, Wales

Fair warning - this post is primarily going to be a giant photo dump. The scenery in Betws-y-Coed was stunningly beautiful so I got a little camera happy. After disposing of my little prank, we decided to walk into town and explore the shops. My mom was enamored with the [...]

Windsor Castle And Bury Market

Days 7 & 8 of Carlsson's European Vacation Windsor Castle sits on the outskirts of London and is one of two locations the Queen calls home. Since we skipped the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, we decided to tour Windsor Castle instead as it also has a guard [...]
