What I'm Loving this Week: Baby's First Wagon

Elle's big Chirstmas gift has been purchased thanks to Zulily. I can't wait to take her on wagon rides and now she will have a pink wagon to match her pink stroller.
PS: Anyone else addicted to Zulily like I am?

Weekend Recap:Niece visit and Taylor Swift Concert

I had a great time with my niece who flew in for the weekend. We spent the weekend shopping and the best part was going to the Taylor Swift concert on Saturday night! Taylor is beyond talented and she is even more beautiful in person if you can imagine that.

Here is one of the photos we snapped before the concert started.

What I'm Loving This Week: Taylor Swift

My niece flies in today for a weekend of fun and best of all to see Taylor Swift perform in concert Saturday night! Yep, that is right I get the fun privilege of taking my sweet niece to Taylor Swift.

I think she is such a doll, I love her fashion and style, and well you would think I was 10 years old again if you only knew how excited I am to see her in person!

I heart NYC in Red

I love spotting random items to photograph { I mean have my husband photograph!}

{psst. the family that is entering Magnolia were dropped off by a personal driver. At first I only thought that happened on Gossip Girl {yes, I know I am too old to be watching that show but whatever..} so needless to say I was in awe and couldn't help but stare.
Now, if only I had a driver that would drop me off at cupcake shops!}

L is for LuLuLemon

To end my week off of work last week aka "fall break" I took in the grand opening of LuLulemon. I found so many cute pieces I could have bought the entire store.
Here are some of my favorites:

Available in a several colors, one being pink!
My sweet husband actually bought me this tank as my present for running my 1st half marathon next month. This top is one of their top running tanks and it is so comfy and yet very supportive it feels as if I am not evening wearing a sports bra. I can't wait to wear this top on race day!

Available in a wide range of adorable colors.
Looks super comfy!

I Heart NYC

We really enjoyed ourselves on our long weekend getaway to New York/ New Jersey. It was great to spend time with my good friend, Sara who lives about 20 minutes from New York City. It was so much fun seeing her little girl Miss L and Miss E play together. They had so much fun as they spent time together at the park, beach, and even taking baths together every night. They also happen to be pen pals with one another.

Our first day in the city was spent going to Laduree. It was just as great as I remember it being when I was in Paris two years ago.

We then we strolled over to Central Park where we had a picnic lunch. I definitely left a piece of my heart in Central Park. It is truly one of the most romantic sites I have seen. Next time I am there I want to go on a row boat.

Then we made our way over to FAO Schwarz toy store. Elle picked out a soft pink bunny that her daddy bought for her.
She was pretty excited about her new toy and then we went upstairs where Elle played on the big piano.

The next day we went to Point Pleasant in New Jersey. We spent sometime on the beach and strolling the board walk. This was miss E's first time actually being at a beach and she loved it.

On Sunday we went back into the city and strolled around the West Village/ Soho neighborhood. Our first stop of the day was Magnolia bakery where we enjoyed cupcakes and banana pudding for breakfast. Then it was off to exploring the streets and doing a little bit of shopping.

It was a quick weekend as I wasn't able to see everything I would have liked but I guess that just gives me another reason to come back!

New York City!

We leave today for NYC!
I am so excited as I have always wanted to visit NYC, I get to experience fall, visit some amazing cupcake bakeries, have a picnic in Central Park, and I get to spend quality time with my an amazing friend and her family.

Now fingers are crossed Miss E does well on the airplane and traveling around on the subways won't be too difficult!
I will be back early next week to share my adventure.

Comfort in a Bowl

Now that our temps are finally below 100 it's time to start enjoying soup again. Granted, I could eat soup year round as to me its one of those foods that never let you down, sort of like a pan of brownies!

Here are some two soup recipes I am hoping to try out in the following weeks.

chicken dumpling
My favorite soup is my dad's homemade chicken noodle soup. We still to this day don't exactly know how he's one of those recipes where he puts a "dash of this" and a "dash of that" into it as its simmers and cooks all day. Lucky for me, this winter my dad is coming to Arizona for several months as he escapes winter back home so I already know what I will be requesting for dinner when he visits!

What is your favorite soup?
