love*birds: 2.13.13

things i am loving this week:
~ ben will be six months old on friday! six months! i can hardly believe it. time flies when you are having fun!
~ one week from friday i will be in mexico. i am very excited for some warm weather and fun!
~ coffee!!! ben is teething pretty bad and has been waking up nights again. coffee is always much needed on those mornings when he has kept me up.
~ a good workout. if there is one thing that can get me to leave the house on these cold winter days, it is the call of a good cycle or yoga class! i never regret it.
and here are a few other things we are loving this week...

nora bird

this dress is so cute! i love the cute round collar and, of course, the bird print!

these handmade bookends are so cool! they would look awesome on my mantel and would for sure be a conversation starter!

i love the hand-painted design on this stone pendant! the colors are so pretty. and it is so cool that it is two sided!

i mean, come on! fox print leggings? yes, please!

the colors and print of this scarf are sure to add interest to any outfit!

nicole (nickichicki) makes grunge look so chic is this cool outfit. her faux leather vest is amazing. this is the perfect outfit for a fun saturday date with the family!

oh man, i love these two.

megan bird
embroidery initial necklace
this necklace takes a few things i love...initials, bright colors, and embroidery...and puts them all together. adorable!

wool coat
i want to buy this coat and wear it all the time. as a bath robe, a coat, a shirt, a's that cute!

custom hudson bay mukluks
i love hudson bay blankets...and furry boots. seriously, these mukluks are like the peanut butter and chocolate of vintage footwear!!

mint chevron peplum dress
i just recently jumped on the peplum bandwagon, and now i need to have this dress. need. it's gorgeous and springy and fun!

you drive me nuts print
this print would ring true about chris on any given day. some days it would be a good nuts, and others, a bad nuts. either way, i love it (and him).

serena over at The Serena Saga always looks great. but i am especially loving her mix of textures and bright colors in this fabulous outfit. and top it off with a furry leopard coat?? perfection!


eva went to a slumber-party themed birthday party last week and got this mask as a gift. it has both a bow and a mustache, which i love, and eva loves to sleep with it on. what a diva!
