love*birds: 1.30.13

things i am loving this week:
~ ben has started "talking" nonstop. he says, "dadadadadadadada" and then looks at me proudly with his huge, toothless grin. it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. i love hearing his sweet little voice.
~ mimi and i have been doing lots of fun art projects lately, since it has been much too cold to go outside. yesterday, we built a rocket ship!
~ it was actually warm enough last night, when jim got home, for some daddy/daughter snowman building and a nice walk.
~ pilates. i used to do it all of the time and have recently been getting back into it. six-pack abs are for sure in my future! (okay, probably not, but a girl can dream.)
~ kale sauteed in olive oil and a little salt. i have been eating that every day for lunch and it is so good it doesn't even seem healthy!
~ trader joe's dark chocolate non-pareils. because when you eat kale for lunch, you can indulge in a little dark chocolate. okay, even if you don't eat kale for lunch, dark chocolate is always a good idea.
~ it's our baby sister's golden birthday today. love you, kristin!!!

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

nora bird
90s floral romper

okay, so i am pretty sure i had this exact romper in 8th grade. but, whatever, i could totally pull it off 20 years later, right???

skeleton key necklace

this is such a lovely necklace! i love the vintage feel. and the skeleton key is so tiny but so detailed!

vintage leopard shirt

vintage leopard print! this shirt is just so cool and sassy. i am pretty sure this has to be mine.

vintage pendelton blanket

i have totally been coveting a vintage pendelton blanket. this one is amazing. and in such great condition for being almost 90 years old!

80s ombre sweater

i don't really wear a lot of pink, but i would make an exception for this adorable sweater! it's perfectly slouchy and looks so comfortable!

holly (holly dolly) looks absolutely adorable in this outfit (that she wore to eat dessert for dinner. yum!) oh, and that sequin skirt is thrifted and her faux-fur snood is handmade! seriously. awesome.

remember that rocket ship i mentioned earlier? behold the "mimi stargazer". pretty awesome, right?

megan bird
stacked infinity rings
i love the texture of these rings, and the sweet little infinity symbol in the middle. dainty, but still makes a statement!

silk cream dress
i love the collar of this dress. i also love that i could wear it to a huge meal, and still look cute and feel comfortable!

vintage lace banner
this beauty would fit right in with our wedding decor. i love it!

vintage platform sandals
it's about that time of year that i start really longing for summer. painted toes and platform sandals....these are the perfect summer sandal staples!

embellished trench coat
before summer, we have to have spring (i can't wait for that, either)...and i couldn't think of a cuter way to play in the april showers than in this trench!

i love jamie's (of Forever 81) vest and flannel combo in this post. she looks so cozy and so chic. i might need to get a vest just like this!


henry got his sling off last thursday. while he still has a few more weeks until his collarbone is fully healed, having his sling off is a pretty big deal!

what are you loving this week?

  1. Happy Wednesday ladies! I just had to say I TOTALLY had a romper in the 90s too, and I absolutely think you could pull it off today! :)

  2. you could definitely pull off that romper! :)

  3. I thrifted a romper similar to that last summer! You could SO pull it off. Plus, I wouldn't be the only one running around in one. :)

  4. Love those stacked rings and the floral romper! So cute. And yay for fun art projects... a rocket ship sounds awesome :)

  5. You could definitely wear the romper! I love that so many trends of the 90s are back in style once again.

  6. I'm loving that the weather is warming up a bit! I know it's headed back below zero tomorrow, but I'll take it while I can!

  7. I should have taken advantage of the warmer weather yesterday, a walk outside sounds lovely! It's already getting colder again today! Boo to that.

    Yay for Henry being sling free!

  8. I love that floral romper, it's so cute! It makes me dream about summer and warm weather.

  9. I'll take the necklace and the ring :)

    Also, hooray for homemade rockets and for being all done with the sling!

  10. I am so going to be trying kale cooked like that, I love kale!
    I fancy making a rocket, even though I don't have children... You're never too old right!?
    The infinity ring is so cute, I may have to drop some hints about that for Valentines...
    So glad to hear Henry is on the men's.

  11. Mend not men's. flippin' auto- correct!

  12. Dark chocolate is health, right? Both of your kids are adorable!

  13. Just wanted to let you know I nominated both of you lovelies on my blog for a liebster award! :)

  14. hooray for no more sling on henry, the rocket ship for mimi, and dadadadada by ben! YAY :)
