Finally Friday!!!!

 We are sooo excited my mom is coming to stay with us for 5 will be great to have her help with wedding details. I'm hoping we can get quite a bit done while she is here!

I have about 5 minutes before Cash wakes up from his nap, so here's a quick peek at stuff i'm loving....

have you guys checked this place out? i LOVE all the funky, unique merchandise they carry.  I love how they are all such conversation pieces, as well as functional objects. so neat, if i do say so myself.

here are some of my personal favs:

hope you all have a lovely weekend!

wiww {week 2}

where oh where has the week gone?

it seems as though it were just last wednesday.

here it goes again, this time i got a little help from some interior color combos....because there isn't anything i love more than drooling over pretty rooms. i find it easy to put fun colors together when i design rooms, but for some reason i have issues dressing myself in fun, funky color combinations.  i ALWAYS resort to black outfits, totally boring.... but i'm going to work on this in weeks to come!

ruffled cartigan: express
black undershirt: new york and co.
jeggings: target
boots: wet seal
belt: von maur
necklaces: von maur & local boutique

if my outfit were a room...color inspiration:

  (i cannot find the source for this picture....if anyone knows, please comment below!)

grey dress: f21
black boots:  cavenders ( my valentine's day gift! love them!)
totally don't wear boots with skirts/dresses EVER, but i thought it'd be fun to try for a day in the comfort of my own home :)
coral necklace: me

if my outfit were a room....color inspiration:

t shirt: target
stripy cartigan: f21
skinnies: target
boots: kohls
necklace: me (mookaite...i love the mustard yellow color)
flower pin: me again. :)

if my outfit were a room....color inspiration:
hope you all enjoyed. i'll be back again soon, cash has his 4-month baby visit today with dr. turner. i'll let you all know how that goes.....i also have a huge list of other projects to get done before my mom comes on saturday!

Happy Wednesday!

{What I wore Wednesday}
this is my 1st attempt. 
Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy started this along time ago, and I had fun following what she and many other's in blogland wore throughout the week, I had no idea that i would join the club....but i thought what the heck it's worth a try!  Being a stay at home momma to a baby makes it a little tricky, because you know you are going to get spit up on, chewed on, pulled on, and many times it's hard to feel "pretty" at the end of the day.  Some days all I feel like wearing is my stretchy pants and a t-shirt, which I do, but this gives me an opportunity to try something different! It makes me work with what I have already in my closet, for example this week I found 3 pairs of jeans that I forgot I had.....being pregnant last year I really forgot about a lot of my fun stuff I used to here it goes!

Shirt/dress: Wal-mart
Leggings: New York and Co.
Tank: New York and Co.
Flower Pin: me
Shoes: I don't wear when I'm at home....not practical, i'm a bare foot kinda gal!

Flannel: Old Navy
T-shirt: Old Navy
Jeggings: Target
Necklace: New York and Co.
Bracelet: Von Maur 

Grey Shirt: Target
Black Scarf: Target
Jeans: Dillards (love them!)

Stripe-y Cartigan: Target
Undershirt: New York and Co.
Skirt: Target
Socks: Target
Boots: Target
(can you tell I LOVE target?!)

Black T: Target
Jeans: Dillards
Green Scarf: Local Boutique
Turqouise Earrings: made by me

running errends this day and it was FREEZING in Texas!
Northface: Scheels
Skinnies: Target
Boots: Target

Okay that's a wrap! I swear I own things not from Target....I think....I had better get showered so we can start again next week! Hope y'all enjoy! :)

i always love a good excuse to make cupcakes
we made these cupcakes for valentine's day....i've been hording the red candy canes since christmas because i knew i wanted to try out this:

{candy cane hearts}

just put two candy canes in the oven at 350 degrees for about 3-4 minutes and wa-la! I don't think chance enjoyed them as much as i did...but they were sure cute! :)

I also made chocolate covered strawberries for chance.....turns out he didn't like them! i know right....?! I was surprised, he ate a few, but i was left with the rest of the bunch {oh shucks!} haha...i may have eaten a few or all of them. in my defense, some of the chocolate fell off before i ate them!

Hope you all enjoyed yesterday, i know it's just a hallmark holiday, but it is fun to do a little something special for your loved ones!

i don't know about you...but every day i feel like i have 10 billion gazillion reasons to be happy.

i remember in college i was dating a guy who broke up with me because i laughed too much.....seriously! obviously we WERE NOT meant to be. 

so thankful i am surrounded by people in my life who let me be me.
 life is too short to not laugh out loud every day. 

{ we seriously have a town called "Happy, Texas" right north of us! so cool! }

wishing you all a very HAPPY thursday!

{my baby}

Looking back at newborn photos tonight......

My baby boy...he has changed soooo much in 4 months, its unbelievable! He fills out all of his outfits, smiles, coos, and can just about sit up on his own. Trying to take in every second of every day because I know some day I will look back and want these days back....


Hello Monday!
Hello new week....
Hello randomness....
We had about 15 people over last night for the super bowl, grilled out, and played games, it was fun.

We are so blessed to have made some amazing friends in the short amount of time we've been here in Texas.  They are all soo sweet and kind and have blessed our lives tremendously.  Their warm inviting personalities, make me want to be a better person.

Mondays are always a little crazy...trying to catch up from the weekend.  So I figure I'm allowed to have a random post of things i like right now... :)

3-tiered stand....this has been on my wish list for a LONG the galvanized metal!

image found via jones design company....these whimsy dolls are sooo cute....i must make some!

save the date ideas i like...

i love chalkboard paint....going to pick up a few cans today....

I am sooo downloading this adorable to-do calender....

Hope you all have a blessed day!

(I also must apologize for my horrible spelling and grammatical skills lately...geesh. i looked back and nearly died.  I'm usually very particular about that sort of thing, but lately I've been seriously slacking! so sorry! :) )

Today we are at the local library.....and it's bringing back old memories of being in college.  the smell. the quietness, somedays it seems like yesterday and then somedays it seems like a world ago! I can tell you one thing....I can't believe I once thought being in college was stressful and time-consuming! Haha - little did I know how crazy grown-up life would be!  :)  It's a fun kinda of crazy though.

We've been busy finializing wedding details and I've started ordering some supplies.  I can't believe we will be getting married in 7 months! time has gone by sooo month we'll have been engaged 1 year.  Every day since I've meet my best friend has been a blessing, I still get butterflies sometimes when I'm around him! Since February is the month of "love" I'm dedicating this post to all things sweet!

I don't decorate for Valentines day...but I'm certian I'll make some yummy treats for the mister to enjoy.  If I did decorate for v-day....I would sooo decorate with this stuff:

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Hope y'all are staying warm!
