• {Guest Post} New England Lobster Bake Wedding from Magnolia Rouge

    Today’s guest poster is an amazingly talented and busy lady from the other side of the world – New Zeland to be exact.  Not only is she the lady behind the blog Magnolia Rouge, but she’s also the designer of Ruby Willow and one of the creators of {MAG}rouge (and if you haven’t met any of them yet, you must check them all out ASAP!)  So given all she has on her plate, I’m so appreciative that Kate is helping me out today.

    Hi, I’m Kate from Magnolia Rouge. I’m delighted to have a little guest post on Chandra’s fabulous blog while she’s taking some time away! Summer is over in my part of the world – in fact, it was practically non-existent this year! So as I feel a bit cheated of summer entertaining, I thought I’d whip up a New England style lobster bake that I can dream about for the next six months until summer comes around again! I hope this has you eagerly awaiting the summer months :-) Thanks again Chandra for having me!!

    Thanks Kate!  I’m so in love with this board and color palette.  And now I’m dreaming of a visit to New England… *sigh*

    •  I rounded up my favorite heirloom-worthy and cute collectible ornaments for kids, including several baby's first Christmas options. Head over to the blog to see them all and for direct links to buy (link in profile)
       Woke up with a sick baby at 4:30 am, got him back to sleep by 6, got one more hour of sleep till both kids woke up at 7, made Charlie's breakfast, got ready for court, nursed Calvin and got him down for a morning nap, drove Charlie to school where he showed his teacher I was wearing "work pants" and told me to have a good day, drove 40 minutes to court, appeared before two judges on two criminal cases and not only didn't sound like a total idiot but actually fooled them into thinking this was a normal day at the office for me (it was, before babies), stopped at target to buy yet another humidifier because both kids need one and they keep breaking and leaking all over our house, drove 40 minutes home and arrived just in time to nurse Calvin again. I may be tired and look a little rough, and I may have worn my Bella band on my suit pants because they don't actually fit yet, but I also proved to myself that I can be a working mom if I need to. Major renewed respect for all you working moms who balance that craziness everyday and manage to look put together and sound like your brain is functioning properly  today I feel like some sort of lawyerin momma blogger superhero and I'm gonna ride that high until I pass out from exhaustion. I can do it. We can do it. Go kick some ass today. Also, I love how Calvin grabs my hair when he nurses ❤️
