how adorable is this picnic blanket? i am absolutely in love with it!

such a gorgeous clutch! perfect for every day or a special night out.

such a fun print. such gorgeous, bright colors. and i love the shape. what a cute summer top!

i was thinking the other day that i would love a cute pair of yellow sandals. these ones are perfect!

this is such a pretty locket! i love that it is all glass and has such an antique feel. so lovely.

my fave instagram photo of the week

mimi and i enjoyed an afternoon at the park yesterday. at one point, she climbed up this big hill and i caught this awesome shot. it just makes me so happy.

me and mama hedgehog sweatshirt
i have a deep-seeded love for cozy sweatshirts. add the fact that it's off the shoulder, has kangaroo pockets, and just about the cutest little design on it! in love.

personalized wedding print
i have been going to a lot of weddings recently. i love the idea of a personalized gift. you can make the tree out of vows, first songs, love name it. what a great idea!

pink lace party dress
i have never considered myself a girly girl. but after seeing this dress, maybe i am. i love the pink-bow-laciness of this beauty and i want to wear it to every wedding i am attending this summer! ps. it was very hard for me to pick a favorite from this store. check it out for more beautiful dresses!

strappy bow platforms
again, how did i think i was not a girly girl? (maybe because i'm in sweats and tanks most of the time?) but really...i guess i just love about anything with a bow on it.

heart inlay vintage cowboy boots
i've secretly been searching for a pair of cowboy boots to wear to the reception portion of my wedding. these might be contenders!

backwards dinner
it was henry's last day of school yesterday, so we had backwards dinner. a.k.a. ice cream before dinner.

blog love
~ i want wren's hair and her skirt. is that too much to ask?
~ keesha has the best mama figure. so curvy and beautiful, and she can rock a pencil skirt. plus she has some amazing tassel shoes that i want!

two birds


  1. my husband and I were just talking about cheesequakes from DQ the other day. We used to get them wayyy too often. But I really need one stat! Ever had one? It is so.good.

    Hannah Tattoos and Pearls

  2. I'm crazy about that locket! I might just get it for myself as a reward if I finish writing report cards this weekend! Thanks!

  3. I am loving the Dairy Queen this week too! I had an Oreo Blizzard on Monday and then yesterday my boss was like, hey, we should get ice cream! So then I had a vanilla soft serve cone. I should probably watch my intake so I don't gain like 50 pounds, but it just tastes SO GOOD.

    And I pretty much love all your picks as usual. You can just shop for me, ok? :)

  4. I can't wait for True Blood on Sunday I'm a serious addict for that show. DQ is so good I love that banana pudding blizzard they have.

  5. what beautiful lists! delighted to be included with our picnic blanket - many thanks!

  6. Those bow platforms are beautiful! I hope your patio gets finished soon so you can get busy relaxing and drinking wine! xxx

  7. Great picks! I love that blanket too! So cute! Yay for Henry being done with school! :)

  8. I'm loving everything on this list! I just want to cuddle up in that sweatshirt!
