What We're Loving, #7

     It's Monday you guys! I'm having one of those very productive "I can do anything" Mondays. Which is good, but I know that it means I'll crash later, so I'm trying to not get too far ahead of myself. The weekend was a relaxing one, Bailey slept well and I binge-watched a lot of Gilmore Girls, but that's nothing new! I've started to dig in to my gift-shopping and wrapping, which is a huge relief. I also went on a chocolate bender this weekend, not sure why but it was awesome. I tried chocolate covered potato chips, bought two of the Vosges chocoalte bars pictured below (though I definitely haven't eaten all of them), and had to buy some Ferrero Rocher bon bon's as well. I just had to. Bailey's still on her blueberry kick, regardless of how many times I show her the Violet Beauregarde scene from Willy Wonka. Oh well, other than that, not much is going on. I'm reading a lot, which is amazing, making a lot of things, and like I said, eating a ton of chocolate. While I reign that in, I hope you all are having an awesome Monday! Thanks for reading!

Wearing: A DIY leather hair tie I made over the summer/the cutest Care Bear PJ's!

Eating: Vosges Bacon Dark Chocolate (wow)/ two cartons of blueberries a week.

Reading: Brave New World (my dads old copy)/Let's Get Dressed!

Making: Lots of prints on dark paper with my paint pen/ all of the scribbles.

Loving: My Mario Badescu Rosewater Face Spray (truly amazing)/Lego's, unfortunately for our feet. :(

What We're Loving, #6

     Hi guys! I hope everyone is having a nice and smooth Monday! So far today, mine's been pretty good. I've just been catching up on posts that I shot over the weekend, and there were a lot. I still got some relaxing things in though, with a manicure in the new shade of polish pictured below. I also started reading the new Book of the Month! So far, all I can say is wow. If you are reading along, be prepared to get inspired. We've mostly just been getting prepared for winter around here! There are like four throw blankets scattered throughout our living room at the moment. Ha! I just can't get enough of them. Same goes for Bailey and the crackers she's been stealing from me. Gotta love my little scavenger though. :)

What We're...

Wearing: My vintage Bass boots from Goodwill/the cutest little lion socks.

Reading: Essentialism by Greg McKeown/Fox in Socks (the only book she'll tolerate for more than a page).

Eating: Habanero BBQ almonds/sea salt crackers!

Making: A Fall 2015 photo album with my prints from Artifact Uprising/beautiful music.

Loving: New polish from Essie/brushing her hair with my brush.

What We're Loving, #5

     Hey readers! I hope everyone is having a good Monday! I had a productive weekend, so I'm feeling pretty great about starting the week. It's just one of those days where I feel like I'm caught up with everything for the most part, but I'm sure life will throw me some sort of curve ball. Thanksgiving was awesome! So so so much food and eating and leftovers. It was basically heaven. After turkey day was finished though, we decorated all day Sunday, and I worked on some crafts for the holidays. See, productive! I enjoyed shooting the What We're Loving for today, mainly because it features my favorite hot chocolate mix. Also, I'm excited for the Gift Guides to come out! There will be three posted throughout December, so stay tuned and enjoy!

Wearing: Mittens, all day/lots of new (to her) fall tops.

Eating: Some amazing hot cocoa/cartons of blueberries, I couldn't even get a picture without interference!

Reading: A 70 year old copy of Brave New World/a Disney classic.

Making: Gift Guides, coming soon!/ All of the sounds with her mini drum set.

Loving: My Knot & Bow Heart stickers, especially for the gifts/a wooden pull horse from Nana's house.

What We're Loving, #4

     Hi readers! It's Monday, so you know that means its What We're Loving day! Winter's starting to stick its head out of the ground and I think I'll be O.K. with it, as long as I'm prepared (hence the socks and hat). I literally don't take these socks off when I'm at home. We are both loving the Greek yogurt! They were cast offs from Brett's wisdom teeth experience, he's not a yogurt fan. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is excellent so far, I can see why it's a classic! Hope you all have an excellent week, happy Monday!

Wearing: My favorite socks/the only hat she can't remove in 3 seconds.

Eating: Greek yogurt/Greek yogurt, but by herself!

Making: Fun things with washi tape/scribbles, scribbles, scribbles.

Loving: This coffee Kristen brought me back from Vegas/my yak (white buffalo) that she's warming up to.

What We're Loving, #3

     Hi guys! This weekend was a little hectic, with all of the shoots for this blog here, and usual weekend stuff, but also, Brett got his wisdom teeth out Thursday, so that's been fun too. It really wasn't too bad of a weekend, Bailey and I still had fun playing all weekend and letting Daddy rest. :) What We're Loving this week is probably one of my favorite ones yet! It's getting a bit easier to curate our favorite things throughout the week, which is why I think I'm enjoying myself. I already finished the Book of the Month and it was amazing. The review and discussion will come at the end of the month, but I'm itching to talk about it now! Luckily my mom read it too, so I'm hoping to discuss it soon with her, hi Mom! But I digress, the book in this post is really great too, I read it in a couple of days. Check out everything else we're interested in this week below!

What We're....

Wearing: My cat-eye shades from Target/An adorable jumpsuit, couldn't be cuter!

Reading: A novel I picked up at the Salvation Army, so good!/An appropriate book, considering the weather.

Eating: Salt and Vinegar Kettle Chips/Cheese, all the cheese.

Making: Anything involving my stamp collection/Messes, and then attempting to clean them up herself!

Loving: My little copper friends (a failed attempt at mini candles)/Anything involving her shoes.

What We're Loving, #2

     Today, we have the second installment of my weekly What We're Loving Series. It has been very enlightening, so far, to sift through our lives to pick out a few things that have been getting a lot of attention. Some things are obvious, like I'm definitely going to be reading our Book of the Month this week, but other things, like pinpointing what specific toy Bailey has been giving the extra hugs to, require a little bit more observation. Now that she's talking and saying syllables of words, she makes it pretty clear what she wants. This was the case with last weeks Loving choice of Mr. Wolfie, she literally says "wolf" when she wants him. I really look forward to continue documenting her childhood choices.

What We're...

Wearing: My favorite beanie/Bailey's favorite cardigan.

Reading: The Book of the Month/ Little girl is saying the number 2!

Eating: Homemade salsa from Brett's mom/ She eats at least one banana a day.

Making: Cards for the place settings at Thanksgiving/ washi tape balls

Loving: air plants!/ a little box from D.C. that her Auntie Becca gave her. :)

What We're Loving, #1

     Hello readers! To start this blog off, I thought it would be appropriate to show you a little bit of what we are loving lately. This "What We're Loving" post will be the first of a weekly series! I decided to make this topic a series because I believe it's important, but mostly fun, to recognize what is making you happy. That's what these posts will be about, the little things! It's also helping me switch things up and not get in a rut, to stay inspired. Being inspired by anything is one of the best feelings in the world, why would you not share that? Here's to being inspired and loving life!

What we're...

Wearing: An 8 year old necklace from American Eagle / Bailey's first real pair of boots

Reading: On the Road (I always reread it every fall) /  Pride and Prejudice

Eating: Pirate's Booty / A smaller amount of Pirate's Booty

Making: Halloween masks (for the first time, it was a blast!) / first painting (so proud)
