Five on Friday

Happiest Friday, girls!  It's been way too long since I've posted for this link-up with Darci & the rest of the sweet ladies, it feels so good to be back!!  With the change in seasons & a few days of warmer weather, there is lots to love right now.  Here are FIVE of my favorites!

ONE:  I never shy from a print in fashion & am always looking for new, creative ones for Waverly & I both.  Right now I am loving all of these "fruit" screenprinted sweatshirts, tees & dresses that are popping up everywhere.  They are so much fun & perfect for the warmer weather.  Waverly loves strawberries & with her hair color, this was one I couldn't resist.
  

I also have to point out that I am kind of dying inside over Waverly's hair in pigtails lately.  Her hair is getting longer by the day & the sight of her sweet face in these growing piggies is one I am sure I have been dreaming of since I found out she was a girl.


TWO:  I don't claim to know much about make-up or how to apply it that well, but lip glosses & sticks I can handle.  I love updating my neutral make-up routine with a new lipstick each season & right now I am loving this pure zen color!!  It's the perfect shade of peach without being completely over the top, so it's great for the everyday.  Did you ladies know you can get a free lipstick at the MAC counter for taking back 6 used MAC packages?!  It's seriously free & that seriously makes me happy every time. :) 

THREE:  Keeping with the fruit theme, my husband, Waverly & I recently had a baking date to make this banana bread.  It was oh so delicious, if only it was as healthy & low-cal as snacking on a straight-up banana would be. ;)  We used a family recipe, you can find a similar recipe here.


FOUR:  Oh Joy Line.  This new line at Target speaks my language, the colors are so perfect for spring, Easter & for entertaining in the months to come!  I am basically obsessed & could find a reason to buy it all.  Something tells me my husband wouldn't agree with my (very practical) reasons for every single piece, so I had to settle on the ice bucket & cake platter
For now. ;)


FIVE:  Cora from Ren & Boots recently was our giveaway for the #littlethingslinkup, she also was so sweet to send me a personalized print for Waverly's room!!  I could not wait to frame it & put that baby right on her big armoire, it is just so precious, delicate, & the best way to display her birth-date.
Check out her shop here for other super cute prints, too!

The forecast calls for a beautiful spring weekend full of sunshine & we couldn't be more excited!!  Warm weather wishes your way too, enjoy this weekend with those that you love. :)
XOXO

  4. That strawberry print is adorable! I just got one for Kiernan from zara with lemons on it with "Picnic Time" across the front and it's about the cutest thing ever. And I usually don't go for words on clothing like that, either. But I couldn't resist. And how sweet are those little pigtails??

  26. Enjoy your spring weather weekend!!

    I love her hair in pigtails. I am so looking forward to doing anything with Aria's hair. It just isn't long enough in enough places to put up even in the tiniest of ponies. Sigh. And, that strawberry print is perfection!
