Hodgepodge Monday

Whew!  I cannot believe I flipped open my calendar this week and next Monday is Labor Day!  I also can't believe I haven't been posting at all lately, so this will be a bit of a hodgepodge Monday post.

One of my favorite couples is expecting!  I taped the VMAs and will be watching a bit later, but was so excited to hear that Jay-Z and Beyonce are expecting their first baby together.  I also think Beyonce looks beyond gorgeous in this ensemble.

I had a little too much fun with the Lilly End of Summer Sale.  Can't wait for my new black Shayna to arrive.  I'm hoping I can wear this to a work party with my bestie in October with a fun new murfee without it looking too summery.

I had a work picnic over the weekend at a gorgeous park that was across the street from a beach I have never been to.  My fingers and toes are crossed that this weekend is warm enough for an outing there.

I found out last week I will be the proud aunt and Godmother to a baby nephew!  I had a feeling the baby was a boy, but the ultrasound confirmed my suspicions last week.  I am so excited to meet my brother's Baby Boy in January.

I am attempting to build an updated new work wardrobe.  A few of the J. Crew dresses seem to fit the bill.

My new office is right across the street from Starbucks.  It will be very very trying to avoid getting a pumpkin spice latte daily when they come back next week.

What's new with you?  Any lovely tidbits you'd like to share?
