love*birds: 9.4.13

things i am loving this week:
~ mimi started preschool yesterday and she loves it! it's a bittersweet moment when one of your babies starts school, but i am so happy and so proud of her!
~ ben and i get a bit of alone time while mimi is at school. i feel like the second child often doesn't get as much attention as the first got, so it will be nice to have a bit of quality time, just he and i!
~ black bean burger+fried egg+white cheddar+chipotle mayo+whole wheat bun=a delicious lunch
~ jim and i started "ripped in 30" last night. you guys, we are going to be so ripped! okay, probably not (please note the above lunch), but at least it's fun!
~ the fall-like weather we are having lately. it is supposed to warm up again this weekend, which is nice since i am not quite ready for summer to be over. but it has been kind of fun wearing fall layers again this week!
~ september! i just filled out our september calendar and, so far, we have no big plans this month. it feels nice after such a crazy busy summer!

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

nora bird

i would like one of these headbands in every color, thank you very much! i adore them!

how adorable is this pillow cover?! i want one for my bedroom, mimi's bedroom, the living get the picture!

such a gorgeous clutch! i love the patterned material. this would be the perfect accessory for a night out!

pretty pretty pretty earrings. i love the vintage lace! and dip dyed, it makes quite a statement! beautiful!

i am pretty sure i need this hand-painted, slouchy tee. i would wear it all the time!

i love the casual and fun vibe of this dress. and it has pockets and buttons...two of my favorites when it comes to dresses!!

from far away, it looks like you're just wearing a super cute pencil skirt. upon closer inspection, you notice the adorable print. i am in love with this skirt!

i love how simple, yet beautiful these necklaces are. i want one in every color!

speaking of simple and beautiful....i love these earrings! i love this color combination! these would make the perfect accessory to almost any outfit!

who says you have to go back to school to have a backpack? i love this vintage bag...the florals are so fun! 

after the 40 bar finish
 i love nina's mix of florals and leopard in this outfit. and that bag and necklace are the perfect accessories. also, a denim jacket makes the perfect transition from summer to fall!

  1. i don't see how working out is fun, but hey, if it benefits you and you get to spend time with the hubs, then i'm all for it! :)
    such a preschool cutie you have!

  2. Love all of the loves!!

    The kids are adorable heading back to school!! Way to go Mimi!!

    I could totally see both of you rockin' that dress! Is that Jillian's Ripped in 30? Very good stuff, but I got totally bored!

  3. Mimi looks oh so adorable in her school outfit! And I am loving the fall - ish weather too :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  4. The kidlings are growing up SO fast! Would you believe I still have a spoon ring from the first time they were all the rage? Yup, that ring is over 40 years old now and still fits perfectly...what makes it even sweeter is that it was made for me by a family member. =)

    Thanks so much for your very caring and supportive comment, it was very very much appreciated!

  5. The kids are all so cute in their first day shots! And now I'm totally craving a black bean burger with an egg on top! :)
