so behind

1st: thank you for all the happy day wishes yesterday. one day that 4 will have a 0 behind it. dear God. i'll be so old. elderly even.

2nd: i. am. so. behind. i've got loads & loads of pictures to show. several recipes to post (to the food blog). stories. milestones. laundry. dishes. projects. etc etc etc.

3rd: i fed the husband doctored up cous cous & cresent rolls filled with Kraft singles & bologna for dinner last night. i think he may have side eyed my culinary prowess but kindly said nothing.
i tell you this only to let you know how seriously behind i really am. and how tired.

so, so tired.

anyway- lets start with pictures. pictures are fun & everybody enjoys them? right? YES YOU DO!

Current Loves:
1. my new handpainted locket

do you see that? a perfect little log cabin & a sweet weeping cherry tree.
i request. she delivered. it's my life in a locket. i love it.

i'm not a big jewelry fan- but i adore lockets. and these round antique lockets are oh so fun.
i'm stoked that even when we one day move from our home (to hawaii of course) i can pop open my locket & reminisce.

locket: khara ledonne on etsy

2. my new sloth necklaces:

i've been over my love for sloths. i hover between utter fascination & complete obsession. if someone walked up to me on the street & offered me a sloth, i would say YES GIVE HIM TO ME NOW! no questions asked. he would be mine & i would plant a tree in my house for him & i would love him forever.

i adore them.

so the husband (aware that our anniversary was approaching) wisely snooped around on my Pinterest page & spotted a pin i'd made.
he then went through the "hassle" of registering for an Etsy account & ordering me, not 1, but 2 of these lovelies.

when i opened the last night- i squeed. gah! sloths for me! hooray!
again- i usually stay away from jewelry- but come on? these are beyond presh. i'm wearing the 1st one right now.

(there is a mamma & bebe sloth one that i die for. but tis' only 1 bebe & i haz 2. booo.)

What She They Wore:
there are times when i squeeze my eyes shut & wish for limitless funds.
most of these times are when i am surrounded by the most perfect little girls clothes.
i want this one. and that one. and those over there. gimme gimme now. all of it!

so then i am forced to whip out my credit card & pretend that i have limitless funding available to me. HOORAY! I AM RICH! LET THE MONEY FLOW FROM MY POCKETS LIKE WATER! i will adorn my daughters in the finest linens!

...and then i kick myself when i view my online statement on the 30th. damnit.
but it's ok- because they look oh so cute.

when i spotted this top at the consignment store i knew i had to have it. it is one of the most perfect little things ever. if i could make her wear it everyday i would.
i think the bloomers are a perfect summer pairing & she had on these adorable pink wedges:

Nemo & grapes

but we traded them out for the Crocs because she loves them so.
and speaking of the Crocs- $30 for rubber shoes = insanity. but i snagged these ones for $12.99 at Marshall's. score.

First off, happy late birthday! LOVE that locket! How amazing! And what an intelligent husband you have for checking Pinterest- mine doesn't even know what that is!

Alex's farm frock may be the cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Surely.

J.Mo said...

My hubs would be very envious of the thundercats tee as modeled by your Mr! And the second edit of Brynn, although they're both adorable <3

Jessica@The Southern Belle Baby said...

Wow. See, I'm kind of off today. Definitely meant happy anniversary, not birthday!

breedwoman said...

I love the second edit of brynn! OMG so cute!

Erin said...

Oh the little girl clothing . . . for sure to kill any budget ;) Great pictures as always :) And way to go hubs!!!!

Laura said...

I'm just going to say I love it all today b/c it'd take too long to write out everything I love. Even down to the music you have playing. :) Love it.

Serendipitie said...

Happy belated birthday!! And your husband is so smart! Snooping on your pinterest page - genius!

Juani said...

I love lockets!But I always have a problem deciding what pictures (or of whom) I want to put in them.

You have the most beautiful girls!(possibly coming in 2nd only after my own niece ;)

Crystal said...
