I'm Lauren, mama of 2 (soon to be 3) crazy kids, wife to a super-cool running maniac who's recently gone back to college, part-time Beautycounter consultant, full-time Wrangler merchandiser, and avid fan of everything fun, stylish, pretty, funny, sparkly, delicious, entertaining, impressive, and overall amazing. This blog is named for our dog Millie (who used to help write, but now has better things to do). She believes we should all be allowed to eat cake all the time.
Baby James has learned to roll over, and boy, does he love his new trick! He has been on the verge of rolling for a couple weeks now, so we were super-excited when we went into the nursery early Wednesday morning and found this:
Tummy sleeper like his mama
We didn't even hear him, so we know he wasn't especially fussy or stressed when he finally was able to make it all the way onto his belly. He has also been sleeping much more soundly since he's learned to roll - I know it's only been a few days, but Hubs and I are very hopeful this trend continues! Horray for learning new things!!!
Has anyone else tried a Moscow Mule? I first discovered this cocktail when I was browsing around online for home accessories, and I fell in love with the look of these cups. They remind me of mint julep cups (but I'm not a fan of whiskey, so I never get to enjoy those).
I'll be honest "Moscow Mule" - just the name - makes me think of a White Russian - which, eww, because liquor and milk should not mix. So I was super-surprised when I actually read the ingredients - vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer?! Some of my very favorite things! It sounds so light and refreshing - quite the opposite of anything with milk or cream. Plus you just can't go wrong with those gorgeous copper mugs!
I've decided I want to try one - or two - of these very soon. Cheers!
Today, I went for a run. This should not be a big deal - nonetheless, I'm really proud of myself. A little backstory. Last time I posted here, it was 2010, I was halfway through grad school, and life was quite a bit different from life today. Since my last post, I... Graduated with my MBA, Met the love of my life (hi Michael!), Started a new job, Moved to Greensboro, Bought my first house, Trained for and Ran a half marathon (PR!), Got engaged, Started another new job, Married the love of my life (best wedding ever), Honeymooned in St. Lucia, Got pregnant, Started a new position at work, Sold the old house, Bought a new house (moved), And I had a baby (James). Or he had me. More to come on all these developments, but in the meantime, I'm going to continue to celebrate life and the little (and big) things that make it all worthwhile. Today, I went for a run. :) XOXO,
