lady in pink

soaking it all in.

one of my fav pics from that ride, and the entire weekend

perfect city, perfect weather, perfect weekend. i was in love with last weekend, i still am, actually. we (finally) did the architectural boat tour, and i have to say, i was pleasantly surprised with how good it was. i suggest everyone visiting this perfect city to partake in this 1.5 hour tour.

i know people, including me, say nothing is perfect, but i believe chicago is as close as you can get to perfect. in my humble opinion, that is.

oh rats

working on a special post for later today, but wanted to post a fav photo for now.

shortly after andrew’s tourney loss, i snapped this:



andrew was probably trying to justify something that happened; he is rarely that sad or mad about losing.  his friend, apparently, doesn’t share the same optimism.

if clothes could talk

my new trovata shirtdress would say this:

trovata speaks to me.

trovata speaks to me.

“part indulgence, part sweet revenge, but a lover all the same.”

this is the kind of stuff that makes me toes curl…in a good way. trovata never ceases to amaze me with little, ever-important details like this.

ps, i got this marked down, so low it should be illegal, from gilt group last week. it’s invite only, but if you want to join, email me and i’ll hook you up. warning though, your bank account may not appreciate it.

c is for cookie, that’s good enough for me

molasses cookies

molasses cookies

well-known meghan fact: i love to bake. in fact, when i lost my job last december, i’m surprised i didn’t gain back the 15lbs i’ve lost over the past year because i baked (and ate) so much. goes to show that everything in moderation is the key. i’m a big “stress baker,” in that when everything around me is going to shit (ie, losing my job), i feel the need to do something incredibly controlling and baking couldn’t be more perfect. i would also like to add, that in my humble opinion, i’m a really good baker to boot. my singleness is a continual mystery to me. but, i digress.

cue the cookies. i used this recipe, but doubled the nutmeg and the cinnamon. they were very easy and turned out supa tasty. i made them 2 days ago and they’re still supa soft and yummy. they are definitely not healthy cookies. but i’ve seen far worse.
