Babymoon in Bermuda

Enjoying the beach and dinner at The Ocean Club.
Our beautiful view, dinner at Blu and baby's first dip in the ocean! 
On a babymoon you never have to feel guilty about room service every morning and all of the virgin pina coladas you can handle! On our last night, we had a very romantic and delicious dinner at Fourways. The souffle was out of this world! It was so nice to have alone time, but nothing beats coming home to hugs and kisses from our little monkeys!

Baby Charles' Nursery!

Wallpaper | Shades | Rug | Light | Crib | Queen Sleeper | Dresser

I have been working with House of Elliott on our new apartment and I'm so excited to see everything come to life! We went with a bit of a Palm Beach theme and green for Charles' room (thinking I can easily add pink if our 3rd is a girl!!!). His room will be open to the living room most of the time, so I wanted to keep it pretty neutral. I'm also very excited for our queen sleeper so that we can finally host guests!

Renovation Underway!

MFB and I are so excited about our new place in Yorkville! We are going from a 1 bed/1 bath to a 3 bed/2 bath, so it is going to be a huge improvement. Here are a few before and afters of the demo and some finishes I've chosen so far: 

Hardwood Flooring, Kitchen Backsplash, Guest Bath Floor Tile, Master Bath Floor Tile

Baby on the way!

We are beyond thrilled to be expecting another darling boy! I am so happy that James will have a brother so close in age (18.5 months apart). I know he is going to be such a great big brother. Our little Charles (aka Chip) arrives in May!
So glad we got to capture my mom's reaction to the news on camera! Photos by Chris Owyoung

Here are some fun things I've been eyeing for our little Chipwich:

Happy Veterans Day!

Happy Veterans day to my hero :) 

Monday, September 14, 2015


MFB and I spent an extended Labor Day Weekend in Paris to celebrate my 30th and our 2nd wedding anniversary! We had a really great time, but it was so hard being away from James. We are very blessed to have such loving family members who were willing to watch him while we went on our trip! 

We stayed at the Hotel West End which was in a great location. We had a beautiful room with a balcony and view of the Eiffel Tower:
On our first day we did some sightseeing on the Champs Elysees and went to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. That night we took an amazing tour of the city in a 2CV convertible with a bottle of champagne. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip and we highly recommend!
The next day was my birthday, so we did some shopping on Saint-Germain and grabbed lunch at Les Deux Magots. Afterwards, we took a long walk along the Seine. 
That night, MFB took me to the most romantic dinner at Laperouse. This place has been here since 1766 and the creaky floors and decor really bring you back in time. We did a tasting menu and were not given menus, so we weren't even sure what we were eating most of the time, but it was an exciting experience! The highlight was dessert - chestnut and caramel souffle. 
The next day we did the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre.
On Monday we took a trip to Normandy and had lunch at this charming hotel. We toured the beaches and American Cemetery. Definitely worth the trip if you are visiting Paris for a few days. 
We had originally planned to continue on to Hotel du Cap, but we just couldn't bare the thought of being away from James for that long. Hopefully we will make it there next year!
