Friday Favorites

October 28, 2016

This week, my big girl was awarded Student of the Month and her teacher had so many wonderful things to say about her at the assembly. One thing that stood out was this: "I love seeing that smile every morning. Her kindness helps create a positive atmosphere in our classroom." Talk about a proud mommy! Both my husband and I were overcome with emotion as our baby's teacher talked about how responsible and focused, and above all, kind our little girl is.  She turns seven tomorrow--lucky number seven--and all I want is for it to be a beautiful, magical, and memorable birthday for her. Because she makes every day beautiful and magical and memorable. Have a wonderful weekend, and God bless!

Geode lips--possibly the coolest beauty look I've ever seen.

Here's where I share my favorite words with you. Because savvy girls have impressive vocabularies.

Friday Favorites

October 21, 2016

We've had a crazy week, and I can't remember the last time I felt this grateful for the weekend. Besides having to take my toddler to urgent care on Monday for an infected bug bite (her tiny little hand was so swollen and red, it broke my heart), we had the usual errands and dance classes and I've only got a week left before my big girl's Barbie Glam birthday party next weekend (coffee is good; coffee helped). This weekend I'll be finishing up details for the party, but I'm sure I'll find some time to relax too. Have an awesome weekend, and God bless!

Nightstand Goals

October 19, 2016

We've always had night stands, but we've never actually had styled night stands; our bedside tables have typically been a place to stash anything from books we're reading at the moment to mail that needs reading, and now that we have young children, the odd toy or childish knick knack. We recently got new nightstands and I'm determined to transform them into the stylish, sleek bedside tables I see in design magazines. These nightstands serve up some serious inspiration. 

Love the gold, obvi. This is equal parts feminine and masculine, which is ideal for us. 

Simple, but so pretty.

We actually have these lamps (the shade is different though). 

Adding a chair instantly turns a bedside table into a vanity--pure genius!

I love the idea of fresh flowers by my bed at all times. 

A mix of shabby and glam that totally works.

This is, of course, too feminine for my husband, but I love the styling.
