I’ve re-fallen in love with getting dressed now that the weather is getting nicer. Winter always feels so long.
This is not a maternity top–it’s actually a dress from Forever 21. But the back of it is pleated in a really cool way so it kind of opens up. I look forward to wearing it all summer.
Top: Forever 21
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa
Bag: Ted Baker
Another note–after last week’s giveaway at Rockstar Diaries, I’ve received 37 orders for custom headbands! Wowie zowie! I finished two yesterday and six today, so I’m plugging away at it. If you are interested in ordering one too, shoot me an e-mail.

On Saturday, my friends Kristal and Sarah hosted a party for me and Dave and invited all of our friends to come together for a Welcome Alice party!
I love all the planning that went on behind the scenes–a gray and yellow theme, the girls coordinating with Dave and my mom to have my favorite snacks, a sweet playlist and a casual atmosphere. If I were to imagine the best baby shower I ever went to, all of my friends would be invited regardless of gender and nobody would have to put their butt in a chair and play a game. It’s the perfect approach to party planning and Sarah and Kristal were awesome hostesses!
“Welcome to Earf” is a Will Smith quote. Can anyone name that movie?
Kristal made vegan cupcakes so Dave could have them too.
My good friend Eric Downs came and even designed this little Alice graphic and printed it on his wrapping paper! He is moving into CAMP with me next month and I think he is as excited as Dave and I are about this kid. Anyway I framed the graphic and it’s hanging in her room until we get some other pictures!
My friends Jen and Jenny got us these onesies and Jenny actually took the time to embroider one…
Isn’t that mindblowing? She even replicated the typeface I use for my branding. I can’t believe the thoughtfulness, I have the coolest friends.
My mom and dad came and gave us lots of vintage toys which I love. One package held a big stack of Little Golden Books…remember those? This one is called “We Help Daddy.” Surprisingly (?) it’s not sexist at all and the message is very cute.
This book is titled “I Can Fly” and the girl in it is a little naughty…
We got a lot of yellow rompers and dresses. I’m stoked on this one because I have a dress just like it. And yes I will be the mom that dresses her kids to match her.
My little friend Tatiana (her sweet mama was one of my models) helped Jenny keep a list of the gifts and drew me some pictures too.
LOVE this chair. It’s the one I sat in for the Omaha Magazine photoshoot!
Dave and I were sitting on our porch today, eating leftover pizza, talking about how lucky we are to have such kind and generous friends. We were so surprised when Kristal and Sarah offered to have this party for us, and it was a much-needed chance for us to reconnect with all of our pals for a last time all together before our life takes this huge turn around the bend. As one of the first couples in our friends group to have kids, it feels nice to know that they aren’t bailing out on us, know what I mean? They are all just so thoughtful. It was the best day.
