C is for Clementine

Guys, I am stoked for this weekend. We're having a sleepover at my sister's place in the city because we overbooked ourselves and will do anything to avoid driving to and from Manhattan multiple times over a two-day period. (Don't let this fool you into thinking we have active social lives. Usually, we're pajama-wearing hermits).

Both Friday and Saturday night present the occasion to wear a dress and heels (yahoo!). I'm treating myself to a fancy new lipstick on my lunch break today.

Also, I'm pretty sure I've consumed something like fifty clementines in the past week. One of the kids brought in a case to share for snack, and holy heck, the classroom smelled incredible afterwards. I've taken to restocking a basket on our coffee table to encourage healthy noshing at night. So far so good.

Isn't 'clementine' the best word? Sometimes I think it would be really funny to randomly shout it as loud as possible in deep vibrato in the middle of the quiet commute train car.

Other great things:

Sam Cooke (on repeat 'round these parts);
Currently burning this winter berry candle;
Love this badass jive baby.


  1. It IS a great word, pretty name for a girl too I think. Have a blast this weekend...with love from your fellow PJ wearing hermit friend. ;)

    1. There was a student at my school with the name a few years back. Such a cutie.

  2. I haven't been able to get enough of those little things either. Every time I have ONE, I end up eating at least one more....Sometimes two. Oh well! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. so funny, clementine is my favourite girls' name and if the little one in my belly is a girl that'll be her name. best word ever. happy to have stumbled upon your blog :)

  4. That jive baby is fantastic! He's half baby/half old man. Adorable!

  5. I love the smell of oranges/mandarines/clementines it's so festive somehow.
    Gorgeous photos. I just found your blog and adore it already!

  6. Oooh, clementines are sooo delicious (and addicting).


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
