creature comforts

creature comforts

on the weekends, it’s sometimes a struggle for me to get dressed up.  I’m a creature of comfort.  I love wearing cozy sweaters, leggings and soft knits around the house and have been known to throw on a pretty necklace or earrings in attempts to dress myself up.  these styles from Alexander Wang fit my weekend attire perfectly.



us plus one

baby us

hi friends!  I’ve got some very exciting news that I’ve been dying to share with you.  dlb and I are expecting our very first baby!  we are absolutely over the moon.  I had an ultrasound last week and we got to see the babe wiggling and stretching and being uber cute.  it was so surreal.  this week, he or she is the size of a lemon!  if you saw me today you’d hardly know I was pregnant, though my belly is slowly expanding!  I’ll show you some belly pics as soon as I have one.  :)

in the meantime, dlb and I have been trying to think of a name for a new blog where I can post pregnancy, baby and family related things.  I decided that since the will most likely be more personal and kid related, of course, that I’ll be separating it from Unruly Things.  I’ll let you know once I’ve got that set up… we just need a name for it and nothing is sticking.  {got any ideas – let me know!} Thank you Carlene!  we’d thought of Unruly Baby and that just didn’t stick, but I think we’ll go with Unruly Little Things – we love it!  I’ll let you know when it’s set up friends.

anyway, I’m so excited to share our news with you today.  we can’t wait to welcome this little person into our world!



holiday dressing + little black dress

abbot dress

I don’t know about you, but I get pretty excited about dressing up for the holidays.  I think this little black dress would be a wonderful option for pre-Christmas or New Years parties.  I love that slit down the back!  plus, unlike most sparkly, flashy, sequined holiday dresses out there, you could probably wear it more than just for the occasion.



right this second…


I’m already dreading:
winter!  {although, the slight chance that we might get snow this weekend is making me a little more excited!}

I’m listening to:
this amazing Rachmaninoff Prelude that I hadn’t listened to in years.  oh how I miss having a piano

this weekend, I’m planning to:
bake a pumpkin pie.  {I know, a little early but we can’t wait any longer}
make more home squeezed cider.
snuggle on the couch with my kitties.
begin tackling some looming “to dos”

happy weekend my friends!  chat with you monday.

lately with the ever dropping temps and drizzly weather, it’s all I can do to stay warm.  these things from Toast would sure help to keep me toasty.
