A Giveaway Winner and My Weekend Anthropologie Finds

Happy Monday. I am excited to announce the winner of the Oversized Growth Ruler. Sara Shay, come on down! :) I will be reaching out to you shortly to help with the details. Thank you all for entering! I should have some more great giveaways in the near future.

I had a fabulous mellow weekend in Carmel, Ca, our last getaway before baby number 2 arrives. Every time I go to Carmel all I want to do is drink wine, shop, and eat. I guess you could say that about any getaway. While I shopped a little and ate a ton, I obviously didn't drink. But to that note I have never seen so many wine tasting rooms in town. I cannot wait to take advantage of all these new tasting rooms on our next visit and tell you all about them. Here are some highlights.

I feel like I just struck the jackpot

It was the Concours d'Elegance this past weekend

Strolling in Town

While we were shopping I popped into one of my favorite stores Anthropologie to take a look around. This store not only has some of the best accessories and clothing, but also amazing kitchen decor. Yes kitchen decor. I am really into collecting unique antique looking glassware and now have sort of moved over to the coffee mug department. The nice thing about collecting different mugs and glasses is that its not necessarily expensive.  Here are some of my findings.

Cadiz Mug

Monogrammed Mug

Fleur-De-Lys Tumbler
Platinum Petals Wine Glass


  1. Loving that first coffee mug which is weird because I'm not huge into floral - my husband and I already collect mugs from wherever we visit as a souvenier of all the places we've traveled together but I'm thinking I will need a cutesy girly collection! thanks for the idea! ha. by the way you are one super duper cute pregnant mama!

    1. Thanks! :) I just sort of fell into collecting mugs and glasses. But its fun and I like that its not a matching set...go for it!
