• Bumpdate: 17 Weeks

    Wow, I cannot believe it has been 3 weeks since my last update!  Time is flying by!  As you can see from the pictures above that was me at 14 weeks (can’t believe I am putting my bare belly on the internet) compared to me now at 17 weeks.  So much has changed, but overall I feel awesome.  Now that the Lutz Bump is in action, look for more ways to #stylethebump.  I am not going to lie, maternity fashion is MUCH harder than I expected.  I am trying to stay true to what I love, but these body changes…

    HALLER.

    How amazing does that dish look?  Those are Buckwheat Blinis with Gravlax, Creme Fraiche, Caviar and Dill.  Are you hungry yet?   Several weeks ago, the hubs and I hosted a vertical wine dinner at our house that focused on Chateau Beaucastel wines from the Southern Rhone region.  We were so happy to host this wonderful event that supported local Alabama charities and The Tum Tum Tree Foundation.  The food+the company+the wine…the event was spectacular! However, the food stole the show.  Chef Haller Magee truly brought down the house with his seemingly effortless, yet eclectic dishes.  He literally took over our kitchen creating a pop…

    OH BABY.

    SURPRISE!!!!  A new contributor will be joining Life Lutzurious this August…Ryan and I are EXPECTING a BABY!!  I am BEYOND thrilled to finally share this news with all of you.  I am literally in tears as I write this post. I hope you enjoy our fun, hip pregnancy announcement! So, how did this happen (well, we know how it happened), but was it expected, how am I feeling, are we having a boy or girl?  Well, to sum it up, no it wasn’t completely expected.  It was the perfect late Christmas surprise!  Remember the foodie/shopping extravaganza we took to Atlanta on…

    chocolate.

    Oh hi!  I thought the word chocolate would get your attention!  This recipe was not originally on the schedule to post today…until I bit into these delicious bites of goodness.  I have no doubt these will be served in Heaven!  My word they are AMAZING.  Anyways, I highly recommend you go straight to Whole Foods or your pantry, gather the ingredients, and get to baking.  These cookies are not only scrumptious, but they are also super easy.  And by easy, I mean less than 15 minutes total time.  I found this recipe on Pinterest (shocker).  The original recipe is posted here.…

    Hello dolls!  I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!  Looks like the cold [and maybe some snow] is headed back this way.  Bring. on. spring!  But in the meantime, I have THE PERFECT winter outfit to show y’all.  Everytime I wear this sweater, I get so many compliments.  Not only is it super cute, but it is extremely comfy and very versatile.  It can be dressed down or dressed UP, and it’s perfect this time of year.  Of course, in these pictures I paired it with my favorite leather leggings [that I now own in 3 colors.  OOPS.], my go-to Janessa…

    heart day.

    Wowzers.  I can’t believe it has been 16 days since my last post.  Definitely not a good start to my resolutions!  I promise to do better.  Crazy how fast this year is already flying by…hello February!!!  Well, this past weekend, the hubs and I ventured out for quite a nice lil Saturday.  It was absolutely GORG outside…the sun was shining, the air was crisp, and the sky was clear and blue.  It was a perfect winter day. So, what DO you wear when it’s not freezing, but not warm either?  Layers of course!  I have been so excited to team up with…
