It's London Baby!!!

3.31.2011

So I've been over on this side of the pond for about 3 weeks now and things couldn't be better!!! I'm still really deep into the whole job and flat search but wanted to share some of the other things I've been up to. Here is a recap in the form of pics. of my time in London thus far... hope you enjoy!
meet the hubby... ben =)
his famous mussel soup...
wine & lace...
random guy...
can you see me???
It's been really nice to be involved in Ben's life over here and getting to share in all the "normal" little things most couples might take for granted. It's funny to be the "mrs" but I am getting used to my new name. I also love getting to spend time with my new friends over here aka Ben's friends, and exploring all London has to offer.
liverpool sunday market...
leather bags...
cool owl print...
yummy market food...
love love love street art!!!
 I've also taken the time to be the "tourist" while running to and from flat viewings and just indulging in picture taking. I especially love capturing anything and everything british... what can I say as an american, I'm just used to having a lot of home town pride and I wouldn't want to offer my new home anything less ;)
so grateful for these...
it's the new...
red, white, & blue...
i heart double decker buses!!!
these too!!!
lovely parks...
cute family...
splish...
splash...

green tights...
Another fun weekend activity that the hubs and I have taken up is roaming the streets of london and poping in and out of coffee shops and vintage stores. There are so many great thrift stores here that we are thinking of using that to our full advantage to decorate once we find a flat!!!
so many treasures...
so many shoes...

and boots...
um the word your looking for is heaven!!!
bunnies!!!
Ok I know this has been a long post and I'm sorry, this is the last group I promise you!!! But in my defense, this has been 3 weeks of catching you all up to speed on my life so far. One of the best things about being in London is also the fact that so many people come and go through here that already just a couple of weeks into living here I've already had the pleasure to meet up with some old co-workers... ah life is good =)
some of my kmart ladys...
meeting up at a pub...
yummy appetizers...
traditional fish & chips...
of course beer!!!
So if you made it through this long of a post than I thank you sincerely... I promise to update you all weekly so the next ones won't be this long... hopefully! Have a good night or rest of the day depending on where in the world you are.

Melissa Valentin...

3.30.2011

Let me introduce you to Melissa Valentin... firstly, isn't that just the cutest name!!! She is the lovely and oh so talented photographer of Melissa Valentin Photography. I actually have known Melissa for years as the little sister of one of my childhood friends. She is now also a wife, a mother, and a self taught photographer with an amazing eye for detail and a whole lot of talent! So if you are in Savannah, Georgia hurry up and make an appointment for any special occasion you might want to capture...

Melissa does a wide range of photography including but not limited to family portraits, maternity, fashion, art, life, events, furry friends and my absolute favorite... Children!!! Looking through her portfolio on her website was so inspiring but what I really kept being drawn to was the children section. The way she manages to capture kid's in such a natural way is just beautiful. Her style is what I'm striving for with my Wonderkids photoshoot that I'm editing at the moment... coming soon =)
this little cutie is her daughter!!!

Scrubs Inspired...

3.29.2011


At the moment I am re-watching Scrubs... one of my all time favorite shows ever!!! It's nice to have something familiar and comforting in the background while I scrounge the web for jobs and flats. I've always needed to have some kind of background noise... is that normal?!? And Scrubs is perfect because I've watched it so many times it doesn't distract me from my real work... any of you guys do this? Here are a few of the songs that really stood out to me throughout my many seasons of watching... and re watching!

Babies Laughing...

3.26.2011


Today's theme is babie's laughing... ever wonder what makes them laugh and why? When they have barely managed the task of focusing, holding there heads up, and possibly recognizing their own names... what could possibly be so amusing... according to these videos, depends on the babies!
pic. from here...
Could be the ripping of paper...
Or perhaps the blowing of a nose...
Maybe it's looking at someone that looks exactly like you...
Or just a silly word like Gulp...

Not really a baby laughing but YOU will be!!!

Charlie Bit my Finger...

3.25.2011

Friday night date night with the hubs... were heading over to bricklane for some oh so yummy curry!!! Today was exhausting... viewed more flats with nothing to report back. Tomorrow we have some more lined up so I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed...

Leaving you all with the cutest video ever of what I hope our children might sound like someday... but no worries, no time soon ;)
