Holiday Gift Guide for Yo’ Man…

It’s that time of year peeps – time to start thinking about what the heck we’re going to get the men in our life for Christmas. And let’s be serious – with how difficult boys can be to shop for, ya can’t start thinking about it too early, amiright? Add insult to injury: husband and I have our anniversary on December 18, so I’m faced with the double-whammy of gift-giving stumpery (stumpery: a word I just made up that means being stumped. Awesome.).

Compliments of the ever-so-fabulous J.Crew, here’s a little manly holiday gift guide to spark some inspiration for your gift-giving. The only issue now is picking which of these items to give! (ohhhh millions of dollars – where are you when I need you? Like, everyday of my Coveting Cathy life?)

What are you getting for the men in your life this holiday season?
Help some sistas and mistas out and spill your ideas!

And then get your shop on below! xoxo

Black and Brown

November 12, 2013



Cool: being pregnant

Not cool: being sick with a gnarly cold whilst being pregnant (double-whammy of the worst kind)

Cool: hummus

Not cool: eating half of the giant tub of hummus in one sitting. Uh-huh. That happened today. Oops?

Cool: black and brown combo

Not cool: wanting to wear black and brown everyday of my life.

I feel like my uniform lately has been the black and brown combo. Remember when that used to be a huge fashion No-No? I DO… which probably alludes to how old I am (womp womp). These days it seems to be what I always gravitate to. In fact, if the black and brown combo were a boy, his name would be Chase Willardson and I’d marry him then have his baby (a baby boyeeeeee!).  The End.

We’re having a BOY!

Husband and I had our gender-reveal appointment on Friday and found out that the little nugget growing in my belly is a baby BOY! A BOY! The truth you guys? I was shocked. I thought for sure we were having a girl. So much for my motherly intuition, eh? Admittedly, I had a bias because my mother-in-law (who had three boys and no girls) was dying for a baby girl. BUT, apparently the Big Guy Upstairs had other plans and a baby boy it is! He made sure we knew it too – he was not shy at all about showing off his manhood during our appointment. He was making a statement! Chase was proud.

The truth is we couldn’t be happier. I think husband was secretly hoping for a boy all along, and I just wanted a healthy baby more than anything. Momma-in-law is still as excited as can be to be having her first grandchild, and everyone on my side of the family couldn’t have cared less what gender we were having – they’re just stoked that we finally jumped on the ‘havin’ babies’ bandwagon. So all is well over here! Don’t worry that I’ve already gone crasssssy pinning nursery ideas and baby boy clothes. And yes – we went out over the weekend and picked up an ensemble for our little man. Menswear Monday will now be featuring TWO Willardson boys instead of just one. Pretty appropriate if you ask me. Aaaaaand one last thing – I think he might be a soccer player some day. He’s been kicking the crap outta me lately! I love it. All of it. It’s all becoming so real now. What an adventure we’re about to embark on. Am I scared? Mmmmmmyeah. Is it daunting? Overwhelming? Totally! But more than anything, I just feel so grateful that we have the opportunity to start a family, and that I’m starting it with my favorite human in all the land. Gratitude – that’s what I feel most of all.

K, but who would I be if I didn’t pull together a baby boy wish list – let’s be serious? I’m a Pregnant Priscilla and a Coveting Cathy with a baby boy on the way whose gotta be looking so fresh and so clean (clean).

Here’s what I’m lusting after… 


And how cute will he be in this little gem?


Yep – a boy feels just right.

Happy Menswear Monday!

Thanks for reading!
