How cute!

Love this little tote, organic cotton with a solid bottom so can handle a laptop.

Conor and I are getting away sans kids in a few weeks. Here are some amazing (and sadly over budget) places I've been stalking. 
Inn at Windmill Lane

Minnie me

I think I might have found the perfect pair of pants, the minnie from J Crew. They fit like a glove and are hands down the most comfortable pair of trousers I have ever, yes, ever, worn. I might get my size in every color, perfect for the playground or the office. LOVE it. 
PS this is not a sponsored post from J Crew- but if they want to give me a few pairs, I'd have no problem with that as these babies aren't cheap at 90 bucks a pop.

We have an accepted offer on our house in the Hudson Valley, closing in 10 days. This past weekend (after the ER incident), we held a big huge contents sale. We sold most of the furniture, knick knacks etc...the cutest couple dropped by, they had just gotten engaged and were looking to furnish their first home together. So sweet, they bought a whole bunch of stuff from us...here's a look back at the house. We'll miss it, but time for a new chapter.

Gussie's first stitches

Sweet Gus has had this first (and probably not his last) stitches at the ER on Saturday. I put Gus down for his nap, around 2:30 on Saturday, I didn't hear any noise and was keeping an ear out while getting the house organized (we are selling our house upstate, another story). I heard him chatting away, no crying, then a little crying, 5 minutes later, full distressed crying. I ran up the stairs, into his room and couldn't believe my eyes. I truly was stunned to see blood everywhere, all over his face, his hands, his clothes, his crib, it took me a full 15 seconds to take it in and understand the situation. I just couldn't believe my eyes. Gus had managed to pull down a framed picture of my Dad off the wall, it shattered to the ground and somehow sliced the inside his little finger in the meantime. I yelled for Conor, who took control of the situation, very calmly. We rushed him to the bathroom and then to ER where he had to have two stitches! I cuddled and cuddled him and was so glad I was there for him. 
Luckily, Gus's godmother jumped to rescue, cleaned the nursery, top to bottom, followed by watching over Cole, while we were in ER. S, you are a real trooper.
The ER nurse asked me if our second child was a boy, at which point she said - two boys, you'll be back!
