i am so in love with fall.

Monday, September 24, 2012

we thoroughly enjoyed our truly last open weekend for a while these past few days. especially since it is now officially fall and the leaves are already starting to turn here.

i am loving, more than imaginable, having all of the windows open with the cool, crisp air sweeping through the house. it is one of the best feelings in the world (even though it is freezing at night, i just don't care). i have probably tweeted something about the windows being open about ten times in the past two weeks because i am just that excited about it.

we..

+ bought our mums for the fall.
+ had our first doggy rehearsal for the nearby high school play (G plays the "i'm taking the dog, dumbass" dog from legally blonde.
+ drank a lot fall-flavored coffee. and beer.
+ bought a lot of pumpkin flavored things.


+ worried about baby a lot. he has very swollen lymph nodes (again) and i am just hoping we can get it figured out this time. he is not the happiest of dogs right now and it makes me one sad momma.


+ lit a lot of candles.
+ listed a lot of my phone cases for sale on instagram in preparation for my upcoming iphone 5 purchase. i sold most of them (happily, but also somewhat sadly -- i am quite fond of my cases), but still have these two available.



+ read a lot of books.


+ indulged in new downton  + the emmy's.
+ went on a date.
+ caught up with old friends at katie's adorable baby shower.


+ bought a lion costume for G (no, he is not wearing it here -- i just love his squishes).
+ finished my rewatch of the secret circle + am missing it all over again.
+ wore hoodies + layers + oxfords + scarves.

sigh. i miss this weekend already.
i left work early today with a headache and spent most of the afternoon in bed. wasn't exactly the start to my week that i was hoping for, but i am feeling better now, so i guess it was needed. now to indulge in some new tv {switched at birth, partners, two broke girls} and get back into bed for the evening.

we had such a perfect day on saturday,
celebrating our wedding anniversary.
usually we don't make too big of a deal out of them,
but this one just felt special.
extra special.
i guess the five year increments just tend to seem like a bigger deal.

we enjoyed the heck out of the whole day.
remembering our wedding day
and reminiscing about our first five years of marriage.

and being a little goofy together too, obviously.
and cheesy and romantic and lovey and mushy.

perfect for us.
cupcakes and starbucks
convertible rides and running around the park with G
walks and story telling
naps and adventures
acorn collecting and river admiring
wearing out G and making kellan giggle
our favorite italian bistro and
perfect, perfect weather.
wedding candles still burning and
dancing to our first dance song.
being so in love and
blessed and lucky and grateful.


and brian spoiled me with a
gorgeous anniversary band that
i am so over the moon in love with
and glad to have a memory of this day forever.


can't wait for ten years baby.
thanks for the crazy ride.

completely in love and in love and in love with this song.


Tell me where to now 'cause the lights are up
And the covers and the gloves are off
There's no win or lose so go ahead make your move
Let's just pray that it's good enough
There's a war in my heart getting tired of fighting
When you say that you love me it hurts like lightning

Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows

Someone stop the clock before the good gets lost
Before my heart has to start again
Will I go alone or will you bring me home
You see through my eyes like broken windows
So tell me if we're dying before I let go

Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows

Bitter bleeds bitter bleeds this heart
Bitter bleeds bitter bleeds this heart
When you say that you love me it hurts like lightning

Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows
Where to now
Who knows

weekends are for :

Sunday, September 9, 2012

snuggles. late night drives. starbucks. lots of cooking. watching tons of switched at birth. cool breezes taking over the house. spending serious time with my husband. cleaning. K giggles. running errands. twitter spying on the perks premiere. the lorax. mini grilled cheeses. infinity scarves. really good morning light. fall weather. catching up on my reading. baby showers. moscato.

unfortunately, they are also for fighting off headaches. worrying about money. and folding laundry for hours.

but they're still the best. 


and i am sad to see this one go. now.. about that moscato.

cheers,
chelsea

oh, baby.

this weekend i had the pleasure of throwing a baby shower with my friend sarah, for our friend ashley and her soon-to-be-born baby girl. there is just something so pretty about baby girls. besides the obvious adorable newborn baby part... all of the pink and ruffles and cutesy headbands and booties. we had a lovely afternoon, enjoying the beautiful weather and oohing and aahing over perfect baby gifts and yummy treats.



such a great time celebrating and we lucked out with such a beautiful day. can't wait to meet this little one soon.

+ this deliciousness.

i have to go catch my breath now.

melancholia.

Sunday, September 2, 2012


it is not often that i finish a film, and immediately begin plotting when i can sit down and watch it again. i wasn't expecting to get so involved with this. i should have known.. lars von trier. i just have not been able to stop thinking about melancholia since watching it for the first time yesterday. like, when you find yourself wanting to bring up things from the movie to people who you know have not seen it... but you just can't help it. like that. it is haunting, and beautiful, and devastating.

in other news: i hope this long weekend never ends. how many pumpkin spice latte's can i acceptably fit into these last two days??
