love*birds: 2.20.13

things i am loving this week:
~ it's my birthday week. yes, week. chris is always a sweet guy and treats me extra princess-like on the week of my birthday.
~ case in point, we went to dinner and to see the book of mormon on sunday. loved it (not for the faint of heart, though).
~ i had a woman think i was a student. she may have been lying when she said that, but i don't care.
~ three-day work week. yep...i'm taking my birthday off, and it was president's day on monday, so basically today is my thursday.
~ i'm finally getting my haircut on friday. i'm thinking of getting bangs again...thoughts?

and here are some other things we are loving this week.
megan bird
i love the mixed patterns of this dress. and it makes me wish for summer, even more than i have been lately!! i might have to get this one.
vintage faux fur coat
probably the last thing i need is another faux fur coat. but when has need (or lack there of) ever stopped me from buying anything?

vintage platforms
i can't get summer out of my mind. and how perfect would these be this summer? i love the wooden platform!

triangle double necklace
i love this subtle statement necklace. it would accentuate almost any outfit!

home state tee
i adore this t-shirt. and don't fret, they have more than just my beautiful state!!

va darling
andrea of va darling is mixing sexy and simple and shiny and did i say sexy?? in this fabulous outfit. i love the more masculine t-shirt mixed with the feminine necklace and those great booties make it all perfect!

this is how non-plussed my kids get when i shop. they can just tuck away and sleep in the cart. and just to set the record straight, i would normally not shop when my kids are this tired. but eva had gymnastics, and we had 20 minutes to wasn't worth it to try to go home first!

nora bird

can it be summer already? and then can i wear this gorgeous dress every day? because i really want to.

cutest necklace ever! i love the bright colors. this would bring fun to any outfit!

jim and i have been singing this song to mimi since she was a baby. we used to sing it when she would get upset on car rides and it always calmed her down. pretty sure we need this print!

i love this simple, pretty piece. it's just really cool.

this dress is so pretty! i love the colors and it looks so comfy. i feel like this would be great for lounging around and could easily be dressed up for a night out, too!

brittney (another beautiful thing) is wearing the perfect date night outfit in this post. i love that she layered her peplum over the most adorable bird print skirt!

just my family and i being silly.

what are you loving this week?

xoxo, two birds
