love*birds: 2.26.14

things i am loving this week:
~ it's still my birthday week, and chris is making sure i am treated like a queen.
~ even though we don't do birthday presents, chris has bought me something for every day this week so far.
~ he claims they are from the kids, so they don't count as a gift from him.
~ so far i got a new phone and a new camera.
~ he is also making dinner and doing the dishes every night.
~ he also stayed up until 3am one night to finish the kitchen nook that i had envisioned in my head.
~ eva called me "the queen of moms" and said I was "like a rose".
~ henry told me i was his "bestest best friend ever, aka mama."
~ my family rocks.

and here are some other things we are loving this week.

mid century club chairs
 we have similar chairs in our house that i adore, but the color of these chairs is so eye catching, i can't not want them!

1970s floral dress
i love a good 70s wrape dress. throw in a fun, yet understated floral print and a big red bow, and it's a definite winner.

floral wiggle midi dress
the shape of this dress is so classic, and the print is so unexpected. i love the contrast of the two, and think they work together beautifully to make a fabulous dress!

cotton rope plant hanger
a whole wall of little plants in fun pots and a simple cotton plant hanger sounds amazing, no?

geometric bracelet
i love the look of this bracelet. it's simple, yet complex. it would be perfect alone, or fabulous with a whole arm of bracelets.

vodka infused lemonade
agi wrote this beautiful post, and is hosting a link up next week (march 4) to inspire everyone to show their real beauty. she wants people to post pictures of themselves without their hair and makeup done. to get us all inspired, she posted this gorgeous picture of herself. join in next week!

sometimes when our kids aren't getting along, we make them hold hands, or hug, or something equally as cringeworthy to them. we made them walk to school like this last week after an argument. by the end, they were laughing and getting along!

i am in love with this shirt. it is perfect for spring! i love the simple, gorgeous garden print.

such a pretty, delicate ring! i love that it's bronze. i hope dainty, geometric jewelry never goes out of style, because i am obsessed!

this print needs to be in my home! look at that gorgeous type! i love this.

i am loving brass jewelry lately. this understated crescent pendant is so pretty. and the stars make it extra special.

it needs to be warm and someone needs to throw a fancy party so i can wear this dress! it's classic and flowy and so beautiful!


Christina looks so comfy and chic in this outfit. the glittery mustache sweatshirt is so much fun and so perfect paired with her boyfriend jeans. and how gorgeous is her hair?!

  13. hahahaha, I love the turquoise mid century chairs! My ydd got some so similar about 2 months ago. wow. I know both of your 'blog loves' this week. Cool. I love all of the jewelry. I have the same taste in those things as you two cool birds!

    The ballerina dress is so pretty! I love it!

  16. Gorgeous chairs and what a wonderful birthday week!

    LOL, you reminded me of the 'kissing rug'. When the kidling was wee I had a funky red, lip-shaped, rug and when she and her cousins would argue I would make them stand there, nose to nose, until they 'kissed and made up' (the kissing part was optional!) and they invariably started cracking up before 5 minutes would pass.

  17. Your family is awesome! :-) The floral midi dress is really pretty. I love the colors.


  18. It sounds like a fantastic birthday week! I love the blue of that flowy dress, Agi's eyes and the bracelet that reminds me of a fish skeleton. This week I am also loving carbs. It's a hormonal thing.

  19. Those chairs...I die
    Hope you keep having the best birthday week ever

  20. Those chairs are so fabulous! I love all the fashion picks here too and YAY for wood floors!


  21. Happy Birthday. Kick up those heels!!

  22. What a wonderful week you are having! Cheers all around!
    Those chairs, dresses and jewelry is so gorgeous!! You guys always bring the best.

  23. I love that crescent pendant! The chairs are gorgeous! I would love to see pics of the breakfast nook. It's my birth week too and we have also been "doing it up."
