about a year ago, we received this lovely nespresso pixie machine as an apartment-warming gift from josh's parents. at the time, i wasn't so sure we needed it . . .
fast-forward one month, and we were in love. in part because i got pregnant and suddenly i was drinking decaf + josh caf, and also because these little pods are so freaking easy and insanely delicious. i'm not a huge fan of keurig coffee, but in my opinion this is entirely different.
teeny tiny baby jeans
not so practical, but omgsocute.
seriously, this is my favorite purchase ever. i only regret we didn't get one sooner! the only thing missing is a crystal ball that will tell me how long any given nap will last . . .
in all seriousness, i believe that having this will be key to being able to fit in regular running workouts once i head back to work! which in turn will be key to me maintaining my sanity. worth every penny and square foot of floor space.
post-partum i was not happy with the way my old nike tempos were fitting, and i splurged on a pair of these dash shorts from athleta. they fit much better and are about 10 times more flattering, so now i just have to resist buying more, because honestly $49 for shorts is a little steep. luckily, i do laundry every 5 minutes these days so one pair will suffice for now.
farmer's market peaches = delicious!
as i've written previously, my wardrobe isn't the most exciting right now, but i am impressed with the quality feel and drape of these pure body v-neck tees. i have 2 and am thinking of expanding the collection -- perfect layering pieces and great lab-wear for when i head back to work. NOTE: they run super-small [mine are size medium].
why did it take me years to get into this show?! i need to go back and catch up from season 1, but i'm enjoying the current episodes.
note - this is not a sponsored post -- just the random material goods that have brought a little extra joy into my life lately :)
workout -- jillian michaels' no more trouble zones dvd. i thought this was a great at-home strength/boot-camp-style workout, though it's almost too long for me [almost an hour!]. my abs are sore today, so hopefully it will also prove to be effective :)
dinner -- after blogging our weekly menu i didn't end up cooking last night! we ate a super-late BBQ lunch which turned into dinner, sort of. although i still ate a burrito and some ice cream later in the evening because i am basically a bottomless pit right now.
