Pete loves Michelle

I woke up to the best surprise this morning.
I had been whining last night about how I need new music on my Ipod,
and this morning when I left to run I noticed there was a new play list titled
"Pete loves Michelle"
I'm not going to lie, it kind of made my day.
The music was all great, and made my run fast and especially enjoyable!
Here is one of my favorites from the list:

Cowboy Baby

Let me start this post by saying that I am NOT pregnant -
But I do have a lot of friends and colleagues that are either pregnant
or trying to get pregnant, so babies have been on my mind lately.
If (or when if you ask Pete) we have a boy -

I hope everyone had a very romantic Valentine's Day!

Are backpacks back?

Is it weird that I have the sudden urge to buy a backpack?
I haven't worn a backpack as a purse since my Kate Spade one in the 9th grade,
but recently I've been kind of loving them...

There are several things we want to do around our house,
and first up is fixing up our bedroom!
Which means purchasing new dressers + nightstands.

I've been searching online, and of course found the perfect set at DWR...
if only it came with a more perfect price tag :/

Must Read: Heat

I read this book in Mexico and absolutely loved it!

Here is a blurb from the NPR book review:

It seems like an unlikely career move: Bill Buford left a dream job at New Yorker magazine to work as a low-level "kitchen slave" in one of New York's most famous restaurants, Babbo.

It all happened one night when he invited Babbo's celebrity chef Mario Batali over for dinner. After a lot of wine and grappa, the insatiable Batali — a rotund, red-haired dynamo who has a number of restaurants and a hit cooking show on the Food Network — convinced Buford that he would be a great subject for a magazine profile.

Batali allowed Buford to work in Babbo's kitchen, and soon Buford realized there was enough material for a book. The result is Heat, Buford's new book about his year in the Babbo kitchen and his search for the origins of Italian cooking with grandmotherly pasta makers and a Dante-quoting butcher in Italy.
