babes and bags

one of the greatest things about being pregnant is thinking about a whole new little person. and what it's doing and how it's growing and what it might want. sometimes i hear myself saying, well that's because the baby likes it. not something silly like a manipulative motive. me? manipulative? never. but you know, once in a blue moon, the babe will want lasagna. and lasagna it will get. even if we have to drive to that darling deli, Cucina, all the way up in the avenues to get it. sure it might turn into a date night. even better. the babe likes date nights too. and the curly fries at the diner last weekend, the babe devoured those too. yeah, the babe has great taste. sometimes the babe wants me to go to sleep early. and other times the babe wants me to sleep in late. sometimes the babe lets it be known that it wants me to skip out on an afternoon of work and see who's on oprah. you know what they say, you can't spoil a child under one. today i think the babe has a hankering for a pb and banana sandwich on wheat, made by dan. this babe is the best thing that has happened to me. i can't wait til we get to meet.

yesterday i got to hear it's heartbeat and it even gave the microphone some kicks. it was excellent. it's a strong little babe in there.


and speaking of beautiful babies...



if 100 dollar bills grew on potholes (or potheads, both of which i have been bumping into today) i would drive to mona, utah and scrape them all up. then i would purchase this fabulous chloe Anoushka Leather Wrap Hobo shoulder bag. i usually don't swoon over crazy expensive made in italy type of stuff like this. but this one is special. and i will be keeping my eye out for knock offs when i head to nyc next month or perhaps Target throughout the summer months. come on Isaac Mizrahi, don't let me down. it's gorgeous and perfect, with plenty of zippers, yet still no nonsense design. lovely, lovely. for those of you with a tree blooming wads of cash growing in your backyard; be my guest; the bag is exclusively at saks. i'll be ordering mine in aquafresh turquoise; because if i'm gonna pay $1500+ for a bag, it may as well be beautiful, bright and bold. i mean if it's good enough for miss rachel bilson. yeah, methinks my babe would really love this bag.

Beautiful bag!

I find myself saying the same thing about my belly baby. She seems to really like cake batter ice cream!

Joslyn said...

that is a stellar bag. and after seeing the actual scale on ms. bilson i'm thinking it could double as your baby bag. does that help with any justification??

jamieanne said...

Haha. I love your train of thought here. And that bag suits you (and the babe) perfectly. They're sure to have some down on Canal Street in NYC.

Love this post. So true- my babies seemed to always be wanting snacks while in utero. Crazy how that works! I'm already loving watching you become a mom. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Marta.

There are so many things on that bag. I feel like if the Transformers carried purses, they would carry one that looked like that. But with a fold out cannon. And an espresso maker.

Carly said...

the turquoise is delicious. I think the babe will adore it.

P.S. love your blog.

Marty said...

You will be the best mom! When this babe wants curly fries at 2:am, 4:am and 6:am it will know who to ask!

Molly said...

Oh i love the bag! And you almost make me want to have another little babe, but not quite. Two boys is enough for me right now.

so pretty. i'm definitely a bag girl... they know the way to my heart. the turquoise would be beautiful!

Paige said...

Oh yeah, I fell for the Chloe "it" bag last year and got a perfect replica in NYC. Make sure you follow some scary guy to the dank basement in some spooky alley on Canal street and the gorgeousness can be yours! Big risk, big rewards! New babies deserve fabulous bags.

Love your blog. I'm CeliaFae's lesser sister.

that bag is more than my mortgage payment, but it is divine. I'l let you know if I spy a knock-off...cuz I want one too!

I think the baby really does want lasagna. :)

polly said...

you will be the greatest mom, because you know instinctively what your baby wants...you also have impeccable taste.

I love this! On the cliff, the edge of leaping into Motherhood in the next year or two...maybe. I need some sweet little soul like you to push me over the edge. If I can eat all sorts of naughty yummies and buy ridiculous pretty bags because the baby wants it...well, perhaps I can take the leap.

What a great post, I loved it. Babes are wonderful things, I can't wait to have one of my own.
