Sorry I've been a bad blogger!

I'm totally under the weather, in bed, reading all your blogs but just don't have it in me to type much! This flu thing sucks. Hope you all stay healthy!

p.s. this Britney stuff is out of control....the british accent (I'm completely stumped by it), the hospital visits, the men in her's all so confusing.

HA!, HA! HA.......Got the JCrew bathing suit in the mail. Now what made me think I could wear that? I must have had one too many Bud Lights when I ordered it. I looked like a stuffed pepper. Must be returned ASAP. I think I'll keep the beach cover up and call it a day.

Getting beach ready....

Well, we are headed to the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo in March. So, what's a girl to do? Purchase a bathing suit that when I put it on will look nothing like it does on the model wearing it:))) Anyway, I just ordered this bathing suit from JCrew and this Lilly tunic (to go with a pink suit that I already have)...kinda cute huh?!

Note to self: the gym is your friend, the gym is your friend.

Pics of our trip to the Aquarium in Norwalk yesterday...

Cape Update

Well, we had a ball on the Cape. I grabbed a tall skinny caramel latte and Hunter and I hit the highway around 11am Friday. (I can't remember the blog I read about the Skinny lattes on but THANKS, I love 'em!) We were there in 3.5 hrs. No stopping, no crying...great ride all around. My parents were super and so happy to see Hunter, he LOVES them so much. He is quite into his grandfather "Poppy" right now. He just wants to hang around him. It's very sweet. Poppy took Hunter to a work site with about 30 bulldozers, diggers, excavators etc. All of the trucks were parked for the weekend and there was no body around working so they went on these huge trucks and Hunter lost his mind he was so excited. All was perfect on the trucks until H decided to push buttons and set off one of the alarms....let me tell you it was loud! We left shortly after:) The rest of the weekend was very low key. Shopping, hanging out, dinners...lot's of fun. And the ride back....once again supah! No crying...I actually let him watch the movie "The Reef" and he was loving it.....score! The bad news is that I forgot my time!

Headed to the Cape!

Hunter and Poppy watching the Patriots last time were on the Cape-love it!

So, the Mr. has to work in Greenwich all weekend...what the? Oh wait, did I say all weekend? I meant all weekend PLUS Monday. Again...what the? Soooo, feeling like a single Mom I've decided to pack the car and head to the Cape tomorrow morning after I hit the gym to see my family...and watch the Pats of course!

Cons of the trip:
-the Cape won't necessarily look like this photo in January.
-driving 3.5 hrs with a 2 year old.
-driving 3.5 hrs with a 2 year old.
-driving 3.5 hrs with a 2 year old.
-driving 3.5 hrs with a 2 year old.

-Too many to list! Can't wait to be on the cape with the fam!

Hopefully, pics and funny tales to come!

Pink Lobster update-Free shipping through Jan 25th!

Well, I'm happy to report that prior to the holidays I had a bunch of trunk shows (very sucessful-yea PL!) and many orders for both new and old Pink Lobster designs. I had a blast and can't wait to get on the busy train again. Being in a new area (CT) I'm not privy to the trunk show circut here so I need to do a little investigating. I may contact the Darien Sports Shop to see if I can hold a trunk show there prior to Valentines Day...we'll see. And I'm crossing my fingers to have an order placed from a certain Ritz Carlton boutique store...more on that if it transpires (cross your fingers for me). Anyway...check out my stuff if you like and let me know what you think!

I finally hung the botanical prints in our bedroom...I'm really loving them. I think my bedroom may be my favorite place to relax. I love curling up on our bed and catching up on my trash TV, celeb mags or when I have more than 20 minutes; read a book. Although I may complain about never getting enough sleep, I do love it when Hunter invades our bed for butterfly and eskimo kisses. Nothing better. Well, maybe something but I'll keep this PG:)

My two loves...

The big guy is helping the little guy with one of his b-day presents. Hunter turned two on Dec. 27th-Happy Birthday to my sweet boy! With every day that goes by my heart grows just a little bigger from having you in my life.


Okay, I'm not this huge Jessica Seinfeld fan or anything but my Mom gave me this book for X-mas. It's solid. Seriously, I've been having quite a time feeding my 2 year old, he's not very adventurous when it comes to food. The recipes in this book are really healthy, organic and fun food for kids. So far it's been a hit. Thanks Mom!!!
