what I want now…

this Colors 201 Iphone 5 case by MadeByGirl. My kind husband gave me a new iPhone 5 for my birthday. The one I had before {which was his previous one} broke during our trip to Florida so I needed to replace it. He went far and beyond to get one for me. They were sold out almost everywhere. Finally he tracked down one left at a local store. Isn’t he the best? Now I need a case to protect it and I’m loving this one.

You can get it at the Society6 website. They have so many awesome designs it was hard to choose. I’m a big fan of Made By Girl art. I have many of her posters around my house. {You can see them here}. And this is the perfect case, modern, artsy and feminine. Love it!

Happy Friday! Have an awesome weekend.

what I want now…

these Sweet ballet flats!. They are so colorful and look very comfortable. And at that price. You can’t beat that. I may get a pair, or two. Maybe three? Spring is here!

Happy Friday!

{I haven’t forgotten about this little blog. We’re just dealing with a sleepless baby situation and I’ve been going to bed right after we put G down for the night, around 8 o’clock.That way I can have a little sleep and be in better condition to deal with his frequent awakings in the wee hours of the night. Hopefully this phase will pass soon!}

sport those chucks

In all honesty If I saw you at the gym wearing a pair of Converse shoes, I’d have cringed. I know, very judgemental. Well, I think is important to wear the proper shoes when working out, what ever is that you do: running, aerobics, volleyball, weight lighting. And I was yet to know about a sport that can be execute properly in chucks. That just changed last week when I found out chucks are actually really good shoes for Crossfit training. Go figure! They are definitely not good for running but if the WOD (workout of the day) doesn’t include runs, you can easily sport your converse while doing the dreaded burpees.

I wore mine last week and to my surprise they felt really comfortable. I still want to get a good pair of crossfit shoes since I’m planning on continue with it, though.

I want these, the new Reebok Crossfit Nanos, but I can’t seem to find my size. Not sure if I should wait or get another color. What do you think?

Are we already Thursday?! These have been some busy days around House 36. I’m trying to finish our Living Room makeover, getting everything ready for L’s party this weekend, attending play dates with baby G and crossfitting. Yep, I finally made the time to squeeze some exercise into my daily routine. Next step, watch my diet. Mmmm…that’s going to be a little hard with all the Holidays coming up. Well, at least I’m exercising, right?

A couple of weeks ago Paula, from treschicmama, a maternity fashion and lifestyle blog, featured one of my maternity shots in her maternity street high style post. Yes, me! I feel so flattered she liked my picture and considered it for her blog.

If you are expecting, go and visit her blog. She has the latest fashions and tips to be a tres chic mama-to-be. She was not around when I was pregnant but now I’m a fan. I’m telling you, it’ll become one of your daily reads!
