Channeling Lady Gaga

I don't know what the deal is, but whenever Halloween rolls around I fantasize about dressing up like some pop diva. This year, in a perfect world, I would be all over Lady Gaga. There would be eyelashes, hair, mini-everything, heels, meat (just kidding) . . . I know, I know. Tacky, played out, and best left to the twenty-somethings. But how fun would that be?

Feet Candy

These shoes are so pretty and blessedly low. I would wear them with everything.

Have to say, I've got the big-time, love-affair thing going on with my little boy these days. He's just so sweet, funny, delicious, and really, really, ridiculously good-looking. ;)

Two Snaps

My MIL picked up some Dapper Snappers for Bubs, and just like that his wardrobe doubled. I've been so frustrated because he has lots of pairs of really nice pants that have been forever languishing in his bureau because he's just not growing into them width-wise. We're talking size 18-24 month pants that keep falling off of my almost-3-year-old boy. But with these nifty things, suddenly all of his pants fit perfectly. They make them in girly colors too. So happy!

Stunt Ballet

I know none of us has a moment to spare, but you won't want to miss a moment of this. It is beautiful and incredible (and short).

Slippery Little Suckers

If you love a juicy tomato slice with your bagels and lox but hate how it slips and slides, try an heirloom tomato salad on the side instead. An avocado salad would be just as nice. For me, this meal never fails.

Ruby Slippers

Ever since I stumbled upon a little store that was selling three pairs of these fantastic shoes for the price of one, One Ruby Lane has become my new shoe obsession for Snook. Check out the optional, interchangeable sweater collars on the boots. Have you ever? Make that six pairs for the price of one!

These Little Kiddies Go to Market

Lately, I think I've been going to our neighborhood Farmer's Market more for the cute photo opps than for the organic, locally grown produce. Group hug with our neighbor, Maya. Showing off his turtle balloon bracelet.
Keeping the Latin beat.
Sampling some grape varieties Love when he walks around with his hands folded behind him like this. Reminds my mom and me of los senores in Barcelona. Something so masculine and yet completely nonthreatening about it. Going for the toothpicks more than the cheese. Posing with Free Spirit the clown.I do feel a little guilty about walking away empty-handed. Next week I promise I'll ditch the camera.

Phew! We're back from our weekend in Connecticut, and I'm thoroughly winded. But I couldn't wait to share some pictures. The wedding was just how you would imagine an early autumn, New England wedding to be. Gorgeous greenery, a white mansion, classic details everywhere you turned. Though it was hard to notice anything other than the bride. All brides are beautiful, but my girl Aylin looked STUNNING, and she ROCKED her dress. Here she is at the reception minus her veil and train, which were also, please trust me on this, stunning: And here I am with Aylin, Tina, and our other college friend, Jen.I'm so happy I got to go! Congratulations, Aylin!!!
