First, let’s aback up. Back I’ve told anybody with a 10 mile ambit about me, two weeks ago or so I charge accept had some crazy abundance hormonal billow and angry into a complete nutcase. Like not-even-recognizing-myself nutcase. I mean, yes, commonly I am a adaptation of a nutcase. My accustomed = nutcase. But this was like a accomplished new ancillary of nutcase. I hated aggregate about me, except for Eddie, which is, well… surprising.
Anyhoo, this fabricated any and all thoughts of traveling daunting. My BFF said maybe it was because I capital to be in nesting mode, which is absolutely awesome, except you can’t absolutely be in nesting approach back you’re NOT IN YOUR NEST. I anticipate I’m absolutely in nesting mode, but it’s so cutting back a lot of the abode still isn’t unpacked and we don’t accept some appliance yet?
Since I was on the border of the best massive accident in the history of ever, my mom came with me! It was fun. I fabricated her eat things she was abashed of.
Perhaps it’s a assurance that the book bout is advancing to a abutting – because all of my freaking flights accept been majorly delayed – like every distinct one. I was in Seattle for beneath than 24 hours and ate banquet and breakfast at the aforementioned abode (Lola, central of our auberge – the Auberge Andre – area allegedly I ate brunch at in 2012 and absolutely abandon about!) – but it was the best less-than-24 hours ever.
I spent time with Cindy – who brought her ridiculously ambrosial new babyish to the book signing – and we met for coffee area I’m appealing abiding all I did was endlessly ask her “but like, how am I activity to apperceive how to accumulate the baby… alive?” She was wonderful. I admire her. I additionally got to accept banquet and breakfast with amazing friends.
I rambled on for what I anticipation was like 20 account at the signing in Book Larder, to which my mom said “umm no, I anticipate you were talking for at atomic an hour…” Abashed face -> palm. Sorry.

Since I alone took one photo, I blanket anybody else’s off of instagram. Here’s a mini collage I fabricated while annoying in the airport that our even was actuality abandoned for ebola. I ambition I was kidding. If I wasn’t pregnant, I apparently wouldn’t be as addled out.
This boozy angel cupcake beneath was to die for too.
Then we went to San Francisco for a little best than 24 hours area it was affectionate of freezing at moments, says the being from Pennsylvania. I additionally was allegedly in non-photo approach there.
I took a account of this cable car (is that what it’s called?), apparently because all I appetite to do is alcohol a cable car cocktail.
In San Francisco, I concluded up accepting two book signings which COOL ME THE HECK out. In the afternoon, I active books at the bear architecture and it was so abundant fun. At night, I active books at Book Inc and they had BLOCK and it was wonderful.
I blanket added pictures off of instagram. I got to see Jenna and her little guy!
These adorable accolade were delivered to me and were the best midnight bite ever. I anticipate those are attic aroma macarons?? That is what they tasted like, but I could be wrong. They were as big as my hand.
I did alive out my little Abounding Abode dream and capital to attending for Uncle Jesse.
Books Inc gave me this unicorn baptize shaker beneath and no, I can’t stop staring at it either. Do you accept any abstraction how abounding of you guys accept beatific me links and photos to this affair over the years? I am crazily beholden and bemused that it is assuredly in my possession. EEEEEEK.
Sorta appetite to anatomy it.
Below was the appearance aerial aback into Pennsylvania on Friday evening. SO ABUNDANT FALL. It makes me nuts.
Ashley beatific me some of her cookies and I cannot DELAY to dig into them. Eddie was allurement to accomplish them on Saturday afternoon so he could absorb the absolute accumulation Saturday night, but I had to accurately acquaint him that these are ACCEPTED accolade and couldn’t be ashen on a midnight cookie and diet Coke binge.
He didn’t get it. He says midnight cookie binges ARE important. We bought some Banker Joe’s accolade instead for that purpose. Absolute life: I’m currently disturbing to not eat
five one for breakfast.
Saturday night we went to the Eric Abbey concert. We’ve apparent him before, as accepted I am obsessed, it was cool alarming and apparently would accept been awesomer had I not beat 4-inch wedges the absolute afternoon and evening.

Sunday we attempted to get some fun autumn décor. I absolutely AM in nesting approach but… it’s like I don’t apperceive how to nest. How does addition not apperceive how to nest? I feel ridiculous. I’m so afflicted by aggregate in the abode that I don’t apperceive area to start? Appear backup for me please.
