neon trees

hello & how is everyone? good, good.
i am knee deep in disarray thanks for asking, but i felt impressed to send my regards
and even give you the breaking news that a real life post is on its way.
you know the kind with pictures that aren't instagram's sloppy seconds. maybe even ones used with a different device than the one i tell to remind me to buy more bananas.
"thanks, siri!"
"it's my pleasure, emily." is how it usually goes.

if you're wondering what knee-deep disarray looks like:
in general, there's a lot of cardboard around.
a lot of baby wearing, many thanks to the Lulu Wrap by Elle-M-N-O-P
and a lot of debauchery of the Hayes persuasion because he figured out he totally can and i stopped caring after box 25.

the first & only item of business in the new digs until moving day was to put up our christmas tree.
it made it feel homey in a hurry!
and if you'd like to take a peek, or if you've ever wondered about my christmas trees of yesteryear, 
i am talking all about it with my favorite Natalie the fat Ratalie.
she's got a lot of top-notch guest post-ers (C.Jane, Daybook babe Sydney, Liz of Say Yes to Hoboken, Emily f'ing Henderson and surely more amazers to come) & then me also.
but isn't that how all my guest post duties are?

and if you're wondering, Natalie was absolutely the first person, after Russ, that I told I was pregnant with Cal. her jaw literally dropped and so i waited a couple more weeks after that to tell anyone else, ha! also, she's the only blogger who i have actually cheered for while reading a post. i got up from my chair, standing up at my computer pumping my fist and "hoo hoo hoo" ing. it was the Meg Ryan post. and i just loved it. one of the few blogs i actually enjoy READING and then skimming pictures, not the other way around. anyway, read her blog, love it & then read all about my tree this year while you're at it.
