love*birds: 5.23.12

things i am loving this week:
~ this weather! it has been perfect. 80s and sunny with a nice breeze. perfect! mimi and i have just been playing outside all day, every day except when we're at the gym or napping.
~ naps. naps are amazing.
~ the guy at dairy queen messed up my order last night and gave me something called the peanut butter bust (or some silly name like that). let's just say, i found my new favorite treat at dq.
~ this picture of my little girl mowing the lawn with her dada warms my heart. so sweet!

and here are a few other things we are loving this week...

nora bird

if i were a size 8, these would be mine! damn my tiny feet!

i think i need this bag. i love the bold yellow stripe, the rope strap, and how roomy it looks. perfect diaper bag, much? i think so.

i am a bit obsessed with maxi dresses lately. i love the pleats and kelly green zig-zags on this one. super cute!

such a bright, fun, and summery necklace! i love it.

such a gorgeous print! this would look super great on my mantle.

megan bird
recycled material minneapolis sign
as nora said, we are having some lovely weather. and while i always love minneapolis, i love it a little lot more when it's warm and sunny!

alice in wonderland tulle skirt
i am in love with this skirt. so much that i have looked at it every day this week. i should just buy it, right?

jessica simpson charli heel
say what you want about miss simpson, but she makes some cute shoes! i love that these are neutral colors, but also so unique in texture!

sequin heart open back tank
i am feeling a lot of love this week, so this tank is perfect for me! and it has a very unique open back that i love. (not that i could ever wear a tank, or any top, without a bra.)

maxi party dress
i love the deep v and the retro colors of this dress. not to mention the twirl factor. i want to run towards chris on a vacant beach and jump into his arms in this dress. that's normal, right?

what are you loving this week?
