Pink

i remember writing “no pink please” on the baby registry

i don’t really believe that girls should be dressed in pink and boys in blue

actually, people who dress their little girls all in pink all the time, make me want to vomit (no offense)

look at the picture above

i like to call it “pink vomit”

here we are

Lily is 2 and she loves pink

i hardly ever dressed her in pink but pink has found a way in

yesterday while at ross there they were, the tutu and pink dress she has been dreaming of

they weren’t expensive, i melted with the big smile on her face, she’s my only daughter and i just couldn’t say no

it’s a stage i tell myself

it’s a pink stage

 

“A touch of pink”

Yesterday we went to our friend Max’s baby shower.

His friend Jennifer had the shower for him at her amazing house which is right on the water.

Max is a daddy to be.

His little baby girl Emma is due on March 10th.

The theme was a “touch of pink” and everyone and everything looked great!

We had a great time and although Lily was awesome, both Will and I could see that she wasn’t feeling great.

Once we got home we took her temperature and sure enough, she had a fever.

Either her teeth are getting the best of her or she is coming down with something.

It was a hard night with her last night. Fever all night long.

We are going to take it easy today and monitor her.

WARNING: picture HEAVY post!

Chasing giant pink snails

Art Basel is almost here!!!!

For those of you who are not familiar with Art Basel, it is the largest art fair in the world.

It started in Basel, Switzerland (therefore the name) and it’s been coming to Miami in December since 2002.

I can honestly say that Art Basel is my favorite time of the year in Miami.

The whole beach gets taken over by the best artists, art collectors, art dealers in the world.

This year, to kick off the start of Art Basel, there will be 45 huge snails slowly (at a snail’s pace) making South Beach their home from November 18 2010 until January 2010.

The pink snails are part of the global sensation known as the REgeneration Art Project, the Miami Beach snails will be the series latest and first US-based installation.

The art series is designed to inspire a community-wide conversation about the importance of recycling and its environmental impact, while leaving a potent artistic trace on the Miami Beach community.

Lily and I have been riding around town for the past 2 days chasing down these giant pink snails.

And we love them!!!

Thank you Art Basel! 🙂

(Please vote for us here. Thank you!)

P.S.- Have a great weekend everyone!! We are going to chase some more snails. 😉
