It's a Wrap: August 2012

This summer flew by. July was over before I knew it, and now August has come and gone in less than a blink of an eye. Progress was made on settling in. My wardrobe expanded. And, we continued ordering in.
Household Organization
In preparation for a mobile toddler, wherever I could hang shelving or hooks I did. Changing table supplies moved from under the table to the back of her door. Lotions and potions that were tucked haphazardly under the sink moved to shelves hanging from the shower wall. Diaper bag supplies that once littered the floor of Gates' closet moved to the back of the entry hall closet door. (I like the entry hall closet organizer so much that I might order another to replace the over the door hooks we currently have on our bedroom door.)
The Finds (top clockwise) : Crochet Cuff Henley, Henna and Silver, $68; Empire Waist Dress, Navy, $68; Empire Waist Top, Navy, $53.

Now that I'm back at work, my wardrobe needed a refresh. I got clothes for casual Friday, frequenting Buffalo Exchange until I had a few pairs of jeans that fit, and picking up layering tees from Club Monaco, a couple of henley t-shirts from Free People, and a new dress from Tulle.
Continuing to Dine In
Most of our meals were either take out or delivery. Many were eaten lounging a top our bed watching Treme, Band of Brothers, Pacific, or Generation Kill. When I was feeling inspired, some take out was plated. Occasionally to change it up a little, we ate at our kitchen table. Right now, we're ordering from Luna Park, La Traviata, Claire's, Rosamunde Grill, and Red Jade. Hopefully we'll have more of a grove going in September and be back cooking together in the kitchen.
How did you spend your August?
Ciao Bella!
