she insisted on the leg warmers?

park day with friends!

last weekend we attended a murder mystery dinner party.
talk about fun! 
it was a circus theme (last year's was 1920's theme) and Hubs was a trapeze artists while I was an acrobat. He didn't like the costume I made him (gold crushed velvet haram pants, super tight tank, gold sequin belt) but in the end he won the vote for the best costume! 
we had so much fun! 
E loved our costumes. When I came out with my leotard, skirt, headpiece, and make up on she said, "Oh Momma! You look beautiful!" I think it was the glitter around my eyes ;)

you know, just chillin' at Panera

yesterday's Elephant Lunch
each year when the circus come to town, the mall in our city
puts on the Elephant Lunch where you can come and watch 
the elephants eat. Its pretty cool really...and its a fun free things to do!

We've made it half way through this week! Hooray! :)


guys, I'm slacking...again.

But, here is another What I Wore post.

Honestly, this last week I probably spent more time in athletic shorts and t-shirts than anything else. That's what happens when you spend your days trying to clean up the house and playing outside in the beautiful sunshine! 

I honestly don't remember what day this was...last Thursday maybe? 
Brown 3/4 sleeve shirt- Target
I wore my favorite jeans that you've seen pictured 10 times probably! 
Green Scarf-- knit by my aunt (early birthday gift).

I promise to TRY to be better this week about (1) actually getting dressed (2) taking photos when I do.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

This girl has been asking to go to Taco Bell for quite some time. 
She thought it was a "fancy" place. 
So, I finally took her. 
She liked the taco, but I'm not sure it lived up to the hype.

tulips in the kitchen

Baby G-man's cool shades. He loves them.
It cracks me up.

New teething necklace.
Going up in the shop soon (along with a few others)

fort day!

loving her "new-to-her" PJs

my baby man is now 9 months old! 
and finally starting to crawl!

Hubs picked this up at T4G last week. 
Our kiddies get books in their Easter baskets, and this will be G-man's.
Totally fitting!

Happy Friday! 
May you worship and celebrate our Savior this Easter weekend!

Happy Hump day ladies! 
Here we are with another What I Wore Wednesday
and I'm linking up with

This week I was actually inspired by an outfit from a post from ThePleatedPoppy
back in December! 

When I saw the post, I realized that I had the exact same skirt....only I had recently cleaned out my closet and put it in the box to donate! Needless to say, I rescued it and it now have a place in my wardrobe once again. 
I wasn't able to recreate my version of this outfit until recently when I acquired a
denim button-up from Forever 21. My look have more of a Spring feel (no tights or boots) because 
it was 80* here this weekend! 

While I wasn't able to get a photo of me actually wearing the outfit, 
here is what I recreated and gave my own person touches to for my Sunday style this week. 
Denim shirt--Forever 21
Black skirt-- Target (long time ago!)
Gray braid belt-- Ann Taylor LOFT (I think)
Red braid sandal-- Forever 21

So there ya have it!
An inspired outfit recreated. 
Honestly, I felt quite proud of myself for being able to do that. Style ins't my forte, so when something comes together like this, I am really surprised with myself.

thursday evening, my mom kept G-man so E and I could have a date.
we ate outside at Panera and then she wanted to ride in the car with
"her husband, lowly worm". seriously. she talks about him all the time and calls him
her husband. 

first official order from my shop! a friend ordered several teething necklaces for
friends and family that are expecting babies soon. 
not gonna lie...first sale is exciting!

cute little coffee shop downtown Louisville
mrs. potter's coffee.

so thankful to be home and to have Hubs home with us! spending today catching up on laundry and prepping for a beautiful weekend (75* and sunny...I'll take it)!

Happy Friday!

A little project

So, I have been bit by the "its-Spring-and-I-need-to-redecorate" bug.

I have really been wanting to re-do everything in my house...but I have only done a few things. My coffee table is the only one that is fully finished right now, but I am working on a thrifted bedside table too.

I painted the coffee table white ("crumb cookie" to be exact) a while back but felt it needed something. I got a great stencil at Michael's and used some leftover sample paint...I love how it turned out!


Its another post of What I Wore Wednesday...straight from Louisville, KY!

We are here this week visiting my family while Hubs attends a class at SBTS and the T4G conference.

The kids and I are entertaining ourselves and having a great time...more on that soon. :)

playtime on the porch

we spent a lot of time outside this week!

curried chickpeas for dinner!


target fun
honestly, I hate these shopping carts...just too big.
but E loves them and it was kind of nice to have her in a seat she enjoyed rather than
fighting her standing in the back of the regular shopping cart.

lunch outside!

monday night I noticed G-man had a hole in his sock...and his big toe was sticking out...
Hubs had the same issue that night! weird! 
my thing is, how exactly does this happen with a baby who can't walk or crawl yet?

spring decor 
getting crafty :)

monday morning consisted of coffee and etsy listings!

pulling up already! 
love those big blue eyes!
