love*birds: 4.25.14

Things I am loving this week:
~ I started running again. It hasn't been super warm (or light) at 5 am, but I am running again and I'm so excited about that!
~ Skittles. I got some for Easter, and I have been eating them like they're going out of style.
~ Eva's school program was on Wednesday. She had a solo and rocked it out!
~ In an effort to stay up just a minute later, Henry will come find me to give me a hug. I don't care that he's trying to be manipulative, I get free hugs!
~ Our new niece or nephew will be here very, very soon!!!
And here are some other things we are loving!

Stackable Bangles
I love how delicate these bangles are. I love the colors together, and the odd shapes give them a statement-making punch.
Vintage Sundress
I can't wait for the day (soon!) that I can just wear a plain sundress and sandals. It's been so long! This one would be the perfect one to start it off!
Travel Trailer Wall Art
Another thing I am extremely excited about is camping (scamping) this summer. I might need to buy this little piece to hang in our Scamp!
Linen Sun Hat
I guess I have summer on my mind. I want to Scamp on a beach with a fun sundress and this amazing hat! Seriously, isn't it amazing? I love the simple striped detail!
Unicorn Pillow Cover
"Where Happiness Comes From"...I love this! What a fun, kitschy pillow cover!
Pizza Biga
Because I've been hungry all week, I'm choosing a restaurant for local love this week. Pizza Biga is our neighborhood pizza joint. It's within walking distance, offers delicious wood-oven cooked pizzas, a fabulous beet salad, and is connected to a place that has delicious desserts. Go hungry and order more than one won't be disappointed!

I snapped this pic of the kids on Easter. They look so sweet together, Eva picked out that dress herself, and Henry was actually excited to wear that hat!

vintage black and white shorts

These vintage shorts are so fun and look super comfy! I can see them easily dressed up or worn casually all summer long!

wooden clogs

I really want a pair of cute wooden clogs this summer. These handmade ones are perfect!

vintage plaid mini dress

This is such a cute, fun everyday summer sundress. I love the preppy plaid.

gold beaded necklace

These beaded necklaces are so simple but so pretty! They would be the perfect pop to any outfit!

ursula bag

I love an oversized carryall. This one is sort of rugged but still chic. And it looks like it's big enough to carry everything I need!


MOTTO is a well curated lifestyle boutique in the heart of Uptown. It features home furnishings, decorative accessories, gift items, men and women's apparel, jewelry, scarves, and apothecary. They also offer interior design services and personal styling! It is a gorgeous store with some great, unexpected finds!

Yesterday morning, I kept trying to run upstairs to change for the gym. Every time I made a move, Ben would run up to me, jump in my lap, and give me the tightest, longest hug. Needless to say, we were late for the gym. And that was just fine with me!

What are you loving today?
