My New 'Do!

You like!?  I chopped off a lot of the length, added layers and scrunched my wet hair with product for this curly look.
I was sick of wearing my hair in a bun every day to work and wanted an easy 'do that didn't require me to straighten my hair (which is a 20-minute ordeal).  My hair is naturally curly, but it gets super frizzy, so I got a haircut and a lesson on the proper way to keep (some of) the frizz out.

Florida at Its Finest

Here are a few shots from my recent girls' weekend in Sarasota at the Ritz Carlton.  We celebrated a friend's big move to Washington, DC... in style.  

Our friend made us gift boxes with home-made bracelets, magnets and macaroons.  :)

A Sweet Gesture

The other day I was heading to the grocery store and I asked Zach for his grocery list.  He requested a birthday card for a five-year old boy.  Turns out this boy has terminal cancer, and all he wanted for his birthday was lots of birthday cards.  One of our favorite websites picked up the story and Zach decided to send the boy a card.  Sweet, right?

That's my man!  Love him <3

Our Denver Trip: A Highlight of the Pets

Here you can see my brother-in-law Dennis with Bones and Magnus.

Note: there are two dogs in this picture.

Barkley loves his ball so much he falls asleep with it in his mouth.  

Barkley is a fine specimen.


 Hello Bonesy, you handsome devil.

David Ortiz aka Little Papi

First, let me say that it is hard to get a good picture of a baby!  My baby nephew David is so much cuter than any camera could capture.  Here are a few shots of him and the Glasers/Ortiz's from last weekend in Denver.  Get ready to swoon.

Here's Tami playing with David.  He is such a happy and good baby.

This is my favorite picture from the weekend: Dan and David smiling for the camera iPhone

Zach and I bought David this dapper onesie.  Isn't he delicious?!

This is a gratuitous shot of Zach's law school buddy's sons exploring in the back yard, around the garage to our rental house.  Norman Rockwell would approve.

Family Time in Denver

Zach and I, his siblings, their significant others, babies, dogs and friends joined us for a weekend in Denver last weekend.  Oh, how I wish we could have stayed longer.  There is so much love in this family.  Here are a few family shots.  :)  

More to follow of our baby nephew, Tovah and Dennis's five-month old, David.  Love that kid.

Here's Zach and his sister, Tami.  Her boyfriend Jaime recently proposed and we couldn't be happier.

The house we rented for the trip was close to downtown Denver.  It had a fire pit with this cool bench out back.  We enjoyed s'mores here, ate dinners and talked into the wee hours of the night.

We also G-chatted with Zach's parents and showed off the baby.

Zach's buddies Dave and Khalid and a couple of his brother Dan's friends joined us for a barbeque and a jazz fest in the park.  Here are a few folks hanging out in the back yard of the rental house.

This is Zach's friends Dave and Kate's youngest, Tye.  Cute, right?

Zach and Dave - one of his three closest law school friends

My handsome husband playing with baby David.  More on him to come.

Tovah, Dennis and Tami relaxing.  The dogs make excellent pillows.

Tovah and her son giggling and melting our hearts <3
