things i am loving this week
~ quinoa. i have been making it almost every night this week. i feel like it's a carb that you don't have to feel guilty about because it's really a protein. (not that i ever feel guilty about carbs.)
~ clean rooms. as i type this, the kids' rooms are still clean!!
~ days off. i somehow forgot to use a bunch of my vacation time this year, so i am being "forced" to take a bunch of days off in december. i don't think i am working a full week the whole month!
~ cosmic reminders. i read a blog this morning that reminded me that we need to get our save the dates out soon. of course then i freaked out that we are getting married in seven months and i'm nowhere close to being ready!
~ i'm getting married in seven months!
and here are some other things we are loving this week.
seriously, this is like my dream bag. it's roomy and durable and cute and did i mention roomy?
|kelsi dagger karson boots|
i need a new pair of boots. (haha!) but really, one of my favorite pairs went kaput, and i saw these and fell in love. unfortunately, i don't buy new leather, so these will not be mine. don't think that i didn't think of a loophole (like have my sister buy them, wear them once and then give them to me).
|polka dot dress|
a peter pan collar and polka dots? yes please!! (now if i could just have those long legs, too!)
|vintage rhinestone collar necklace|
have i ever told you all how much i love rhinestone necklaces? especially blue rhinestone necklaces. especially especially blue collar rhinestone necklaces. (blue collar...haha.)
|pink cape coat|
i am so in love with this coat. the collar and color are gorgeous!
i love annie's (The Other Side of Gray) whole outfit in this post. i mean, it's floral mixed with fur mixed with booties. and she talks to her clothes, which i love!
i know i keep posting stuff that eva has written, but how could i not post this? for those of you who don't speak kindergartner, it says, "i love you with all my heart. love, eva." seriously, it brought tears to my eyes.
vintage military coat
i was totally inspired by megan's post yesterday. so inspired that i have been using almost all my free time to search for a military style jacket. and i think i found the perfect one! and yes, i am inspired by my own blog, but only by megan's posts, so it's okay.
mini initial charm necklace
there was a period of time when i gave all my friends initial necklaces as gifts because i secretly really wanted one of my own. well, i never got one. but now i really want one with both my kids' initials on it. this charm one would be perfect! so in love.
sequin bow shirt
seriously, how cute is this? so cute! it is fun and festive and would be perfect for a night out, but i kind of feel like i could wear it with comfy pants around the house, too! is that weird?
i love this simple, fun print. it would be so adorable hanging in my kitchen!
vintage floral dress
love love love this. if it were mine, i seriously might wear it every day. which might make for a boring fashion blog...
jenn of The Suburb Experiment is one of the best dressed pregnant women i have ever seen. it almost makes me want to be pregnant again (no. no it doesn't. that was a lie.) but seriously, i love everything about this outfit...especially the bow she stole from her daughter! too cute!
what are you loving this week?
