Let’s just say this weekend was so stunning. So perfect. So magical. So wonderful. So warm. So happy. So joyous.

Pretty much perfect.

Totally impossible to put into words {but I’ll try as soon as I recover from these}.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Shapiro!



Cakery Friday: Cakery Gets Hitched

Tomorrow Ali will become a wife.

You know the old saying.

Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. And something blue.

Time to pass that on “cakery style”.

Something old:

LK’s cheesecake recipe. A family heirloom.

Something new:

No Bake Energy Balls. A big hit in our family and on Pinterest.

Something borrowed:

Our favorite Barefoot Contessa recipe: brownie pudding. {photo}

Something blue:

Bangin’ blueberry tart.

Happy Wedding Weekend Ali + Adam!



Cool Places for Mini People to Sit

During pre-baby preggo furniture shopping, I developed a slight obsession with kids seating. {Read: I lived and breathed kids chairs for an entire week of my pregnancy. Despite the fact that babies can’t really sit in a real chair for a long time. Oops}.

R + M are finally able to spend 30 seconds in their little Land of Nod chairs {Read: I actually mean exactly 30 seconds, not exaggerating. And this is an accomplishment}.

Of course, now I feel like the sky is the limit with kids seating. I’m ready to roll.

Here are ten of my faves:

1. Lou Lou ghost chair from Kartell.

Considering I have the big people ghost chairs in my dining room these on my design wish list for R + M. Plus they come in cool tinted colors like pink, mint green and blue. Come to mama….

2. Mini parsons desk and scoop chairs from West Elm.

Also have always had a thing for the bigger versions. Mini is just so much cuter.

3. Little Nod Chairs.

As I mentioned above, R + M have these guys in pink and denim embroidered with their names. We LOVE them. But I also LOVE the new patterns this seasons. Like the hamburger chair or the sailboat chair with the ottoman. These would bring great design and bold colors to a neutral room.

4. Cygnet Chair from giggle.

For your mid-century modern kiddo {who has no concept of what mid-century modern even means}. This is hip, chic and the perfect lounge.

5. The Yolk Chair from genius jones.

When Cole and I spotted this during preggo shopping, he dubbed it, “the place where babies conduct business.”

6. Pottery Barn Fold Out Anywhere Lounger.

Not to be outdone, PB has this lounger which looks like a mini sofa but folds out into comfy heaven. Code for: the perfect place to watch Sesame Street.

7. 8. + 9. Restoration Hardware Baby: Mini Kensington Sofa, Mini 1950’s Copenhagen Chair & Mini French Wing Chair.

Because it was impossible to pick just one. Or just two. I want them all. Sigh.

10. Jonathan Adler Junior Lampert Sofa.

Because there’s nothing cooler than being mini and mod.
