We Love Donuts, Yes We Do

Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date Donut Date
We took the girls on a little donut date this week.  We usually let them pick donuts one day out of the week (it used to always be a Saturday tradition, but a we're away from home more these days).  I stuffed my camera in my bag, not sure if I would use it or not, but I'm really glad I pulled it out. Sometimes the best moments on camera are the super simple ones.  You know, like donut dates or breakfast dates.

Oh, and Poesy carried that donut box like precious cargo until we got home.  She knows what's important.  ;))

Happy Thursday, friends!

Weekly Wears: Chase Those Dreams

Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears Weekly Wears
I think it's such an honor to be able to support handmade shops and local designers.  I think it's even more special when those people are your friends, just living their dreams.  You may have noticed that I have a love for Swedish clogs (maybe I've worn a pair once or twice around here ;)), so I was a little starstruck when I first saw the ABM + Swedish Hasbeens collaboration.  My friends just designed their own beautiful shoe.  Crazy.

My friend, Laura, along with her husband James, run a shop called Skyline Fever, and from what I've seen on IG, this shirt has been a huge hit.   Every time I wear it, I want to give her a high five.  Pursuing your dreams is one of life's greatest pleasures, don't you think?

Shirt: Skyline Fever;  Skirt: ModCloth (similar);  Shoes: A Beautiful Mess for Swedish Hasbeens; Necklace: c/o Shlomit Ofir;  Sunglasses: BonLook

We are taking a little middle of the week break tomorrow and going on a float trip with some of our friends.  Johnny and I  haven't taken a real day off in so long and I'm looking forward to this like you wouldn't believe!  Hooray for summer activities!

Dress Crush

1 //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6

Dress crushes... sigh.  I've been having one of those crazy/kinda rough months this month, and sometimes it's nice to just take a break and do a little window shopping.  I find it relaxing to just zone out and shop online sometimes, even if I'm not buying.  These are some of my favorites I've found around the web lately.  Now I just need to find that pesky money tree so I can buy all the pretty things, right?!  ;))

I hope your week is getting off to a great start!  xo.

Dining Room Peeks and "Eat A Rainbow" Print Download

Dining Room Dining Room
I've been working hard on our dining space these past couple of months, and you can see it over on A Beautiful Mess today!  There's also a tutorial for the chair covers and vinyl cushions I made.  (photos above by Sarah Rhodes)

Dining RoomAlso, I've been meaning to offer this "eat a rainbow" print as a download for a while now, so here you go!  I took this file to my local Kinkos and asked for a blueprint copy, and I think this print ended up costing around $12.

If you'd like to download it from my Flickr, just make sure you click the "original" size.

Happy Monday, friends!  xo.
