love*birds: 7.31.13

 things i am loving this week:
~ my kids have been walking our dog by themselves every day this week. we never take him on long walks because he is old, but they have really been enjoying walking him just around the block. i can see them bonding even more with him and i love it.
~ we bought push-up popsicle forms and are testing out new recipes for cold treats. today's flavor, key lime cheesecake (in honor of national cheesecake day yesterday). so yummy!!
~ someone asked me why i have so many kids books to donate. i got to answer with, "well my kids read so much that we can't keep all of the books once they read them because we don't have enough room"...sounds like a great problem to me. (our eight-year old is already on the sixth harry potter book!)
~ running. i know my days of running outside will be ending for the season in about three months, so i am trying to savor my morning runs, even if i don't necessarily want to at the time!

and here are a few more things we are loving this week!

megan bird
babydoll ikat dress
i love the pattern and the easy feel of this dress. i feel like this is the perfect day-to night dress...just switch our your shoes and accessories! plus, it would work in winter with some colorful tights, as well as bare-legged in the summer!

bunny ring
i love that this bunny looks like it's hanging on to your finger for dear life. it's adorable!!

triangle zip tote
i had a hard time picking from the collection of amazing bags on this site. seriously, i want one of each!! i'll take this triangle tote for starters!!

wooden alphabet set
first, i need a free wall in my house. second, i will take this set. i am in love with both the idea and look of this set. brilliant!

australian shepherd print
this is basically a paint by numbers of my dog. i am in love.

Chels & the City
i am loving the mix of this breezy maxi skirt and that cute print on the tank. add a fabulous belt and perfect crossbody bag, and i think we've got the perfect summer outfit!!!

i mentioned on monday that our parents moved to a new house. i snapped this pic of them as we were all leaving the old house. mom is crying, dad is smiling! they are the perfect combo!

nora bird
ivory jumpsuit

i am obsessed with this jumpsuit! i love that it is a little bit masculine, a little bit girly, and a lot bit fabulous. i seriously need to find somewhere to wear this!

tiny initial ring

how sweet are these rings? i would love a tiny 'n' ring. and maybe my kids initials, too!

crossbody satchel

this is the perfect day to night bag! the size and crossbody strap are great for a day of shopping. and remove the detachable strap and you have the cutest clutch for a night on the town!

swarovski crystal friendship bracelet

sparkly friendship bracelets!? yes, please! these bracelets are so pretty. i would love a bunch to mix and match!

cat eye sunglasses

these sunnies are so chic. i love the two-tone cat eye!

It's Not That Deep

sheree is wearing pretty much the coolest outfit ever in this post. she makes me want to go in my closet with a scissors and cut all of my oversized vintage shirts like this! brilliant!

follow along @mrsbeyers

ben was teething and miserable for the past two weeks, which was super sad. he was also extra super snugly, which was awesome. i think he is finally over the hump and feeling better, but hopefully he will keep on snuggling!
