new loves and old friends: seventh heaven

old friends
vest~ vintage
watch~ hand-me-down from my mom
mimi's shirt~ vintage, thrifted
new loves
dress~ swapped
necklace~ b. (a resale shop)
flip flops~ Target
mimi's shorts~ thrifted

yesterday was jim and my seventh wedding anniversary. we celebrated by going to mimi's music class and then vegging out in front of the tv and eating ice cream. super romantic, right? honestly, though, sunday night's episodes of True Blood and The Newsroom and a pint of ben and jerry's was just what the doctor ordered. i would have really enjoyed a big glass of wine, as well, but that will have to wait...

in other news, as you can see from these photos, this baby boy is still comfortably hanging out in my belly. i told him he was welcome to come out any time now, but for now he is not listening to his mama. technically, he still has a couple of weeks until his due date, so he can keep cooking if he needs to. but just so he knows, i am ready to meet him!

and just for fun, let's look at a picture of me on my wedding day, seven years younger and much, much thinner...
have a great day!
xoxo, nora bird

  20. Happy Anniversary! You've grown even more beautiful...your wedding photo (and gown) are beautiful but your outfit, and with the baby boy bump and your wee lass in pink gingham? Gorgeous!

  21. That wedding photo is just delightful! And I love how you wore the vest with the bump. Too cute.

    Also, how good is The Newsroom? I frickin' love that show. And True Blood, of course.

  22. you are beautiful! You look great, amazing, wonderful! luxury dress! I really like it!


  23. You look gorgeous, then and now! I love your wedding photo and that vest!


  24. you are just too cute!!! both now and as a beautiful bride!! happy anniversary! and we celebrated our 7th year i believe with dinner and a movie at home. :)

  25. Your wedding photo is adorable and beautiful, simultaneously. No fair. ;)

    "Much, much thinner" made me laugh out loud. The upside to being 9 months pregnant is how skinny you feel two weeks after giving birth.

    *happy clap!* Can't wait to see your boy!

  26. Oh, Nora I just love that photo of you and your little girl. It's just precious. Happy Anniversary! May you enjoy many more years of happiness!

  27. Awww happy (belated) anniversary! You were such a lovely bride, and are just as beautiful today! I adore your vest, it's such a fun piece and the pairing with the green is really cool.

    Definitely need to get into Newsroom, everyone is raving about it!

  28. Happy belated anniversary! I love the print vest on you :)

    And you look just as great now as you did 7 years ago!

  29. Ah, you were a beautiful bride. And the suspense of waiting for this little one is hard...

  30. loving your four leaf clover necklace!

  40. 7 years and you have become even more beautiful. Green is your color Nora, love how you have paired this with an adorable vest. You really know how to layer, not to mention how to dress! You and I have both been married 7 years...I did not realize that until now. I just married late, had to play the field a bit first and let my wild side live a little. I sound like a man. Have a great day!! dawn suitcase vignettes xo
