love*birds: 2.19.14

things i am loving this week:
~ after a month long adventure out west (mostly visiting my pregnant little sister and her husband in vegas), my parents are back in minnesota! we missed them!
~ we are having our hardwood floors re-finished this week. i am excited to see how pretty they look when it's done!
~ while our floors are being done, we are going to wisconsin to stay with jim's parents. it will be so nice to see them. the kids love staying with grandma and grandpa. and jim and i might even get a date night while we're there!
~ it's megan's birthday week! whoop whoop! wish her a happy early birthday, y'all! i am excited for a yummy family dinner in her honor this weekend!

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

nora bird

this is sch a fun party dress! you would definitely be the belle of the ball! i adore the bright, floral bodice and the tulle skirt.

this towel made me laugh because i often have this exact thought! this needs to be in my kitchen, asap!

this dress is simple and gorgeous. i love the back cutout and the vibrant emerald color! and the crochet trim on the shoulder straps is such a fun detail.

such a bright, fun, minimal screenprint! and funny! i would love to hang this in my home.

i want this dress and i want to wear it all spring! i love the pretty floral print. and it's sexy but still looks super comfy!


Sam's outfit, in this post, is so bright and cheerful, which is so nice to see when it is so cold and dreary outside! i love the yellow coat paired with the blue sweater. and the bag and shoes are pretty amazing, too. she looks effortlessly chic!

i snapped this shot of my little ones sharing a snack the other day. those chubby little hands just make me swoon! so sweet!

1984 democratic national convention tee
i love a good vintage tee. a good vintage baseball tee is even better. throw the san francisco democratic convention into the mix...even better! plus, it's cute!

heirloom carrot seeds
did you all know that carrots could be this beautiful? we got a raised garden for our wedding, and i want to plant some of these this spring!

lace dress
with three colors to choose from, you really can't go wrong with this gorgeous lace dress! it's feminine and springy, and all around gorgeous!

orange oversized tote
i have no words for this tote...other than i want it.

neon and gold necklace
when winter feels too long and i am starting to get sick of all of my winter clothing, i start to long for pretty and bright jewels. this necklace is pretty much what i need right now!

snow in the air
 connie is looking extra pretty and flirty in this fun pink dress and (gasp) sandals. i gasp because i'm jealous. we won't mention the flowers blooming, either. i will just use her, and this post, as my springtime inspiration!! check out her blog!

  19. I love the fancy dresses but they are the type of dresses I would need once every 5-10 years. And I would still probably be overdressed with my crowd.

  20. Carrots come in colors? AWESOME! HAppy Early bday megs!

  21. Love the towel and the lace dresses... actually I love all your picks. I like the mix of colorful and artistic finds. :) Happy Early Birthday Megan!
