Strappy nude heels are everywhere right now.  I love that nude heels make your legs look super long and they go with so much.  I have been seeing this style all over the red carpet:
Manolo Blahnik Chaos Heel from Barney's New York $695

Love this look, but a little shocked by the price?  Try these:
Michael Antonio Jaxine-Rep heel from Piperlime $45

They also come in black and blue  The price is definitely right if you are in the market for a great pair of strappy heels!

 
I have been cooking a lot more lately now that I am in somewhat of a routine with Finn and I have made some amazing meals from recipes that I pinned a while back.

Pinch of Yum's Southwestern Quinoa and Black Bean Casserole



Sooo good. We make ours extra spicey by seasoning the peppers and onions as well as the quinoa. This is a great vegetarian meal. I made it one time with a layer of spicy ground turkey too and it was just as good!

Kevin & Amanda's Cheesy Chicken, Bacon, Broccoli, and Rice

This recipe makes it really easy to throw together a meal last minute. I used quinoa instead of rice when I made it, and it was a hit with my family.

Another one from the blog Pinch of Yum (btw everything looks amazing on this food blog), Chopped Brussels Sprouts Salad with Chicken and Walnuts
My mom made this one for us for lunch and it was incredible. If you love brussels sprouts, this is a MUST try for you!

Continuing with my quinoa kick, and now that we have much cooler temps...next up on my recipe list to try is this Lentil Soup with Chickpeas and Quinoa. I hope it comes out as good as it looks!

Any delish recipes that you have tried lately?

 
Ok, maybe that is a little dramatic, but you can now shop online at H&M!  This made my day.  I have already made some purchases!
These ballet flats are super light and comfy and are only $12.95.  I got them in gray and black.  I figure I should have some more flat shoes since carrying around a baby in 5 inch wedges is not the ideal situation for a clumsy person.
I purchased this chiffon dress in the navy color option for an upcoming wedding.  It is only $29.95 and I am pretty impressed with the quality of it.
Spolier Alert:  This is part of Finns Halloween costume, but their kids/baby section is available online too.
I have not purchased anything from the Home section of H&M online, but they have a really cool selection.  How great are these placemats?  I love the utensil pocket!
And how cute are these hand towels?

I need to put myself on an online H&M budget asap.

 
I cannot believe how fast this weekend went!  We love having the hubby home, so Finn and I were really excited to have the extra day this weekend.
I finally got to try out the jogging stroller for an actual jog.  "Someone" decided to start a screaming competition at the end of our morning walk which then turned into an impromptu jog.  Girlfriend was hangry (that is hungry + angry for those of you who are unsure).
We caught up on sleep...I kid, I kid...we have a 6 week old.  No one caught up on sleep but Benny Boy.  Oh well.
Some of us popped our collars and enjoyed our time with the family.
Some of us cut off 9 inches of hair.
Finn got to model her yellow polka-dot bathing suit.  She is so stylish.  Someday she will take over the blog...
And she went "swimming" for the first time.  She loved it, but somehow I think we loved it even more.  And obviously a baby with a full head of hair needs a matching swim cap for her suit.
Mommy and Daddy time included trying the #1 rated beer on The BeerAdvocate right now.  Out of control delish.
 I winded down the summer season with a great teal polish, Opi Cant Find a Czechbook.  I am excited to break out the Fall colors soon.
Finn is excited for Fall too.  She can finally break in her moccasins.  Happy 6 weeks to my baby!  She seems so big, but she is still just a little peanut!
