Love love love that Ellerie you are so loved painting. Did you make it? (And did I miss a blog post about it?) Such a good idea for our baby room!

Thanks Charong! We are so excited! We have a list of names, but we are going to wait until baby is born before deciding and sharing her name. :)

I've heard great things about Evernote. And so true about the library books. There's just something about a beautiful book display that makes me want to buy and read so many books, but I'm all about saving money, so that keeps my wallet in check. :)

New York City. We used to live there and it will always have a place in my heart.

Gah! A cliff hanger! So curious what your news is, but we'll find out when you're ready to share. Hoping all is well with you! Love the colors peeking through this.

It's so funny how you can know! I love reading all of the old wives' tales out there too. Even though none of them are accurate, they're a lot of fun.

It's so hard to know! And I totally second-guessed myself! Yeah, the clothes will be a lot of fun, but boy clothes are so fun and adorable too. :)

Thank you for this! So helpful, and so extensive. Baby girl is due in October, and I'm itching to get my wish lists made. :)

I just shared by roundup of favorite eco friendly body products: http://www.lisavalinsky.com/2015/07/eco-friendly-beauty-products-that-i-love.html I maybe wear makeup once a year, like if I have a wedding or job interview to attend. But that's it. I don't like the feeling of gunk on my face, plus it takes so much time to purchase and apply product.

Cute! I could see making this for get togethers with family and friends, especially with kiddos! Love that color. :)

Wow! It sounds hard to me, between being a vegetarian and being 27 weeks pregnant. But it's fun to read about, and I didn't know about the veggies and water intake. I keep a huge water bottle by my desk all day (it's a 64 ounce one), and I make sure to drink at least 1.5 of them a day.

Oh yay! Love love love Flatbread! And I really want to go to Skinny Pancake in Montpelier - gotta get one savory and one sweet crepe. :)

Yeah, I'm wondering how long I'll feel this good for! Ha! The swelling is pretty bad. Every evening after dinner I lie down on my left side and put my feet on a pillow, which helps a lot. Sounds like we're in the majority with that pregnancy side effect! The waiting on buying for baby is interesting. And it could be super stressful! But yes, planning for family to stay with us after the birth, and hoping Josh will get some paternity leave with his new job for that week, so we should be able to put things together. Somehow.

Hehe. Glad to know about other Gilmore Girls fans! :) And yes to keeping a running list of ideas. I record them on the notes on my phone, which automatically saves to my email, and I keep a running list on Typepad. So fulfilling!

Oh cool. That makes sense if you're doing extra writing elsewhere. Just checked out your blog - love the playing cards! :)

Mmm, sweets. I am all about big handfuls of chocolate chips right now. I'm pregnant and trying to watch my sweets, so I mostly go for fruit, but the chocolate chips save me every afternoon. :)
