inspiration monday: why i love my husband

the inspiration
megan bird



leggings ~ TJ Maxx
sweater ~ F21
jacket ~ Shoe Dazzle
boots ~ vintage, thrifted

nora bird



jacket ~ from megan
sweater ~ F21
jeans ~ Jessica Simpson
boots ~ vintage

there are many reason why i love chris, but today i will just tell you one of them.

as some of you know, we went on a small vacation last week. every year we go up north to a sleepy little resort town and spend a relaxing long weekend pretty much doing nothing. but what chris does to make our little vacation special is he maps out local thrift stores for me, and the whole family then spends a day going to these small town gems with so many goodies. (see a few thing i got here.)

he has been doing this for a few years now whenever we go camping or on other weekend road trips, even though he personally hates thrift shopping. i mean, how can i not love him?

xoxo,
two birds

  4. That's so great - it means so much when they do something because it's important to you, and not to them. :)

    And Megan, I want to snuggle with your coat. It looks so warm and cozy!

  6. hi you birds! I love your coat and boots options inspired by Ms. Holmes. Your coat, Megan is almost identical accept it is just shorter. Chris is a great guy esp in finding shops you love! Nora, the sleeves are so fun on your coat + the print on your top showing below the sleeves of the coat = so fun. lol HAVE A GREAT WEEK! ♥

  10. Oh you both look amazing today! Loving the cute coats! And LMAO at Katie's face, that is awesome.

    That is very sweet of Chris to do that! I am pretty sure I can get Kyle to go thrift shopping with me on a vacation, but I would have to do the mapping out part!
