Hello! I just got back to Chicago this morning. I'm attempting to unpack and get the house back in order while being jetlagged (not to mention caring for a very jetlagged toddler.) I'll be back on Monday, if not sooner!
Happy thanksgiving to you all!! Is anyone planning to shop the sales this year? I'm considering an ipad. Anyone have one? Likes? Dislikes?
And here's my something fun for the day. A was napping so I walked over to the spa a block away for a luxurious 60 minute swedish massage for the equivalent of US $20. LOVE how spa treatments are soo cheap here. Here I am, sweating it out at the sauna beforehand with my new favorite book in tow.
My something fun (while I'm visiting my parents in Manila) is usually either lunch, shopping or the spa. Back to reality in Chicago, my something fun while A naps is watching Oprah or catching up on blogs. What's something you like to do for fun?
If you've been reading, I've been bananas over polka dots lately (see here and here). I just got this top (see here) for both my mom and myself recently. I got the top 2 sizes too big (that was all they had left and I couldn't resist the $19 price tag) but I actually like how it falls on me (have I gained weight?!) This flowy silk top tucked into roomy harem pants make for a really easy, comfy look. The polka dots and cross body bag keep it youthful and fun.
I was checking out the new additions to my mom's handbag collection and I squealed when I saw this Chloe Ethel Satchel! I love how slouchy it is and the oversized gold handle links. It's a good thing my mom is very open about sharing her bags. It's become my go-to bag (for when I go out w/o A) since I've been here.
And here is the little man I came all the way across the world to see. Introducing my new 2 month old nephew, C!
Such a beautiful and thoughtful gift! I love my dad!!
To give you an idea of how delicate and tiny our baby turtle is, I placed it next to this chapstick. I cannot wait to bring the turtles back to Chicago and find a place for them in our home.
