love*birds: 5.8.13 (mother's day edition)

things i am loving this week:
~ this sunday will be my first mother's day as a mom of two. i mean, least year i was pregnant with ben, so i guess technically i already was. but, you know, two kids outside of my body.
~ holy crap, it is spring! hooray!
~ playing outside. eating outside. taking long walks outside. just being outside. and my kids are loving it, too!
~ seeing my neighbors again after five months of us all hibernating indoors.
~ ben's face when you set him on a blanket anywhere outdoors. he is amazed by everything. the birds, the trees, the shadows cast onto the ground, the airplanes, the grass, everything. although, don't put him anywhere near sand. he hates it. and he will let you know.
~ my mother's day plans include gardening, sangria, hanging with my hubby and kids, and a big family dinner over at my mom's house. needless to say, i can hardly wait.
~ our mom. she is the most amazing mom and grandma ever. we love you so much, mom!

and, in honor of mother's day, here are a few things we think that any mom would love...

nora bird

oh my gosh, i need this. this is perfect for any mom with teething kids. ben is constantly grabbing my (non-teething) necklaces and chewing on them. this necklace is not only super cute, but it serves a purpose! i love it!

this hat is perfect for those sunny days at the park or the beach with the kids. fashionable and functional. a must for any mom!

this mug says it all.

have you seen mean girls? amy poehler is my favorite character in that movie. and this is my favorite line. i use it a lot (as a joke, of course. i'm not that cool.)

this would be such a cute gift! i think my mom, all my sisters, and i should get them!


christina does pattern mixing so well in this adorable ensemble! the shorts are so cool and i just love them paired with the striped top! this would be a perfect sunday brunch outfit!

my adorable little ones on a walk the other day. love them.

megan bird
bird vase
a two birds vase!! (what's not to love?) i would love to see a little bouquet of lilies of the valley in this gorgeous and dainty vase!

initial stacking rings
oooh, these rings! they are so cute! and what a fun way to celebrate your kids.

love you forever print
this book seriously makes me cry every time i read it. i think my kids get a kick out of it when i do. it's such a sweet and sad book, but so full of love. a quote from it hanging in my house might make me cry every time i walk by, but it's still so beautiful!

vintage floral maxi dress
this dress would be perfect for lounging in the back yard, drinking sangrias on mother's day!!

sun hat
i have been wanting a fun red hat for summer (even though i rarely wear hats), and this one fits the bill perfectly. i love the nautical feel to it!

Happy Medley
anna of Happy Medley looks so fun and springy in this mix of pastels and stripes. i love all the color, and that skirt looks gorgeous on her! also, she's a new mommy herself (happy mother's day!!) and look how amazing she looks.
ps she also has my favorite book in print in her son's nursery.

    Saw those teething beads in a shop about a year while looking for something for my preggers friend
    thought those things were ingenious
    wish they would have been around when my boys were babes
