love*birds: 9.26.12

things i am loving this week:
~ my baby boy is six weeks old today! that is exciting enough on it's own...but it also means i can start taking him to the gym daycare and can get back to working out again! so excited!
~ with the help of my mom, i took both kids thrifting yesterday and got some pretty sweet stuff. i haven't been thrifting in a little while so it was really fun.
~ The New Girl started last night. man, that show is freakin' hilarious.
~ big salads. i had one for lunch and dinner yesterday. i love me a big salad.
~ my sisters. they are constantly making me laugh. i am so lucky to have those four amazing ladies in my life. they are seriously the best.

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

nora bird

simple. beautiful. want it.

gorgeous! the colors, the stripes! and like the description says, it is a great piece to transition into fall!

loooooooooooove these! who doesn't need a pair of green, fringe wedge booties? (don't answer that.)

seriously? pretty sure ben needs to be a cowboy for halloween. so cute!

i want to wear this next time i go out for a night on the town! or maybe every time. i rarely get to go out on the town so you have to make it special, right?

erin of "Babes in Thriftlland" posted this super fun DIY post the other day. what a fun idea! inspired!

how cute is this kid and his new hat? love. him.

megan bird
giraffe bracelet
who doesn't love a whimsical piece of jewelry? it's a giraffe, and it's cute, and guess what? it's $1.99! buy one for yourself and for your mom. she'll love it!

vintage chambray wide leg pants
it's like jeans and sweats went to woodstock, had a baby, and made these perfect pants. i love them!!

arrow cardigan
i love the cozy feel and cute arrow screen print of this boyfriend cardigan. plus, chris and i could share it!

two-way crossbody bag
i love how roomy this bag is. and i love that you can wear it two ways...over the body when running to work and over the arm after a grocery haul! more bang for your buck!

vintage boots
people were complaining last week that they only made cute vintage boots in teensy weensy sizes...so i found a bigger size this week. and they are just as cute!!

i love the whole outfit that katherine of "Of Corgis and Cocktails" is wearing in this post. the dress, the tights (the tights!), the shoes...it's all so perfect! and then she topped it all off with a sparkler!

sorry, i couldn't just pick one this week. when you have two cute pictures of two cute kids loving up the swing ride at the local church fair, you can't just choose one!

what are you loving this week?
