Have a Lovely Weekend!

Just wanted to pop in and wish you all a lovely weekend! I wish I was spending mine in this photograph, don't you? So magical!  Instead I'll be playing with the baby while husband and his dad work on getting the floor tile project a little closer to completion (this kind of stuff takes FOREVER when you DIY).  Hope you all enjoy yourselves!

Color Crush :: Linden Green

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Fall is right around the corner (what?!) so I was perusing the color trends and immediately fell in love.  I've always been fond of the mustard yellows and army greens and this shade seems to be a perfect fusion of the two.  What do you think, will you be sporting this hue when the air turns crisp?

P.S. - today is our third wedding anniversary!  The time really flies when you're in love.

Hello + A Winner!

Hey, y'all!  Happy Tuesday morning (said sarcastically, as I am not happy to be awake so early today).  I just wanted to drop in and say hi, show you two delightfully adorable pictures and announce a winner from the Firmoo giveaway.

Congratulations, Katie! You've won yourself some new specs of your choice!

Now how about that baby?! Little Wyatt turned 4 months yesterday and I can hardly believe it.  Things are really starting to get exciting with him.  We're settled into a routine, he's consistently sleeping through the night* and  he's cracking us up all the time.  Ever since he's discovered his voice, he won't stop babbling.  I freaking love it.  We have conversations all day, we're always telling jokes and he giggles so hard.  Sometimes it's too much to handle, you know?!

And how 'bout that doggie?! Stevie may not be as spoiled rotten as she once was, however, she's so amazingly gentle and careful around Wyatt.  She is incredibly protective of him and loves to get some baby sniffs in every chance she gets.  I love this picture of her so much because she was going a little nuts over something in the backyard.  Turns out it was a groundhog hopping through the grass, a little leery of the cat I suspect.  Lately we've had all kinds of creatures hanging out in our yard - owls perched on a branch to admire while washing dishes, mama and baby deer grazing every day (the cutest), beautiful, vibrant birds and who knows what else.

We even got to go on a date! We enjoyed tapas, mojitos and sangria for dinner and followed it up by a stroll on the big four bridge downtown.  After our walk, the ice cream truck reigned us in and a perfect summer night was complete.

Hope your weeks are off to a great start!

*Mostly sleeping through the night.  Mostly.

Firmoo Giveaway!

Boy, what a giveaway we have in store today! It's been awhile since I've hosted one but when Firmoo contacted me, I couldn't resist.  Being a glasses/contacts wearer, I know this stuff is expensive.  Firmoo offers incredibly inexpensive eyeglasses and sunglasses that are super stylish and one lucky winner will receive TWO pairs of their choice from the classic series*. Free glasses? What's not to love! Go ahead and enter, you know you want to!

All of their eyeglasses include 1.50 single vision lenses and sunglasses include zero-powered lenses.  Even if you're not the lucky winner, their glasses are a heck of a deal.  

My #1 choice ::

If you're one of the lucky ones in life who have perfect vision (*ahem* husband) you're not out of luck.  Firmoo offers stylish sunglasses as well and you're more than welcome to choose those should you be the winner.  See? Something for everyone. I would choose these ::

Look how fun those are!

I secretly wish I was the kind of gal who would look good in these.  These are fun too, and would look amazing as sunglasses.

So here's the coolest part about this company - they offer a first pair free program so everyone has the chance to correct their vision.  Like I said before, glasses are expensive.  With this program, they offer limited quantities of free glasses daily (first come, first served) that include 1.50 single vision lenses, cases, cleaning cloth and other accessories.  You just pay shipping and full refunds are available if you're dissatisfied.  Pretty cool, right?

Have you guys heard of Mur wall decals?  They are only pretty much the best and I want so badly to have a wall or four of them in my home.  Ever since I bought these Mae Wall Decals for Wyatt's nursery, I've been a fan of anything in similar fashion.  Recently, I purchased a sweet stencil for "wallpapering" a room but that involves paint and precision and frankly, ain't nobody got time for that.  Lucky for us, Green Wedding Shoes is hosting a giveaway in which THREE lucky winners will be chosen.  How sweet is that?!

Tumbleweed Handcraft has some amaaaaazing sunglasses - I can't believe I only discovered them this week!  At $85, you can't really beat the deal of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wood veneer badass sunglasses, now can you.

The fastest way to "hip" up your home - these mini geometric planters would look any room look 10 times cooler.  Etsy shop Shade on Shape has some very pretty things worth checking out.

Sometimes I wish I could plan weddings all the time.  Minus the stress.  But really, the stress is only really bad when it's your own wedding, right?!  Anyway, these straws from Bhldn are so incredibly beautiful, and they're STRAWS.  Why wasn't this store around when I got married??

I leave you with a recent picture of my little meatloaf, as charming as ever.

Hope you are all surviving the week - it's almost Friday! Be sure to check back in, an exciting post is in the works!

Dreamy Accessories

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Hi, everyone! Sorry I went MIA again.  I was off in Chicago enjoying a lovely extended weekend with friends, which consisted of swooning over a pile of babies. It was awesome.  Much recouping was necessary after a road trip with a baby.  Seriously, when are babies going to understand that sometimes you have to be in your car seat for long periods of time and crying doesn't help the situation? Gah!

Now where was I going with this...

Since you all have been informed that the mister and I are currently knee deep in a screened-in porch makeover, I thought I'd put together a board of just a few items I'm coveting for our new outdoor room.  We've been using this porch as storage for the last 2 years, sadly.  We have no garage, no shed.  But the time has come to say, "screw it!" and put it all in another spot that doesn't make sense.  Thus paving the way for my dream porch, with beautiful tile, many plants and the perfect patio furniture and accessories.  

1. This throw blanket from Terrain is absolutely gorgeous and I would throw down the money for it in a heartbeat if I knew it would remain pristine.  Both colors are gorgeous and would look wonderful on any piece of furniture, don't you think?

2. The Belvedere Collection from Target has been my favorite among patio furniture collections in the affordable category.  We've been waiting for the end-of-summer sales to snag something up.  Does anyone have any other suggestions for outdoor furniture sets aside from the usual suspects? I'd love to hear.

3. I love these pillows from Crate & Barrel for the bright colors and geometric patterns.  They would look good indoors or out.  They might not match the others on this list but, whatever, I say. What. Ev. Er.

4. Also from Crate and Barrel - the Tampico Lantern.  It's soft touch and soft glow would leave us feeling warm and snugly at nights.  Plus, it's on mega sale!

It's so fun to play this game.  If only they could all be mine!

Have a Fantastic Weekend!

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm so relieved it's here because I could really use some rest and relaxation.  Sadly, I don't think that's on the agenda, but perhaps I could squeeze some in there unexpectedly.  We've made progress on our tile project, all of our tile has come in (including the specialty/decorative pieces) and we've done all the primer jobs we could do.  I expect big progress this weekend. Just don't hold us to it!  I do believe we have a family pool gathering on Sunday afternoon so I'm hoping to get the chance to share Wyatt with everyone and enjoy myself.  What plans do you have this weekend? Please do share!

Happy weekend - enjoy yourselves!

I love everything about this image.  Can we road trip in California, stat?  No? Instead, we'll be road tripping through Indiana next week to visit awesome friends in Chicago (long overdue).  We'll be cruising in a car, not a van, with a baby who probably won't be into it whatsoever.  Wish us luck...

How amazing do these raspberry & lime sangria popsicles look? Yes, please!!

This also makes me want to road trip in California, and camp by the sea.  Such a beautiful, hand-crafted teepee from Orourke Shop.

I love Georgia's new prints in her Etsy shop, The Big Harumph.  We have several throughout the house and this one and this one are hanging in Wyatt's nursery.  Now through the end of the month, receive 20% off your purchase when you become a Facebook fan!

This dining hall evokes a lot of memories of mine, spending weeks in the summer at camp in the mountains.  It will be so exciting to send my boy to a summer camp. This place looks pretty amazing, Great Camp Sagamore via Martha Stewart.

Hope your weeks have been lovely - it's almost Friday! 

Summer Staples

Friends, are any of you living in anything other than t-shirts, shorts and sandals?  I can't even bring myself to wear a dress. Maybe that's because I know I have to change my shirt frequently due to spit-up and drool stains and maybe it's because this is the most comfortable outfit my weird post-partum body is into.  I don't know, but this summer is all about the casual staples, day in and day out.  What are you living in these days?
