Weekend Notes 08

Happy Friday friends! The sun is out. The sun is out. I swear that I need sunshine to thrive, like a plant. It just is that important to my well being. Today I am playing a bit of catch up and my Mama came up so that I could shoot Phoebe's room to share with you guys on monday. Here's a tiny sneak peek. I've partnered up with Minted and Every Mother Counts in sharing the room and I can't wait to tell you more about it. For now... a little slice of life with the 52 Project (I missed last week!) and some weekend notes.

Week 11/52

Matilda: Oh, this little girl melts my heart. I'm just so proud of what a sweet thing she is. Just a few examples... we had friends over the other night and she was really quiet and all of a sudden she came outside to see us with cards in tow for both of them. One even had a "monkey business" sticker on it. ;) Phoebe has this awesome habit of looking me dead in the eye and rushing a potted plant only to pick up as many handfuls as she can before I can reach her. Yeah, awesome. The last time this happened Matilda said, "Mama, you clean up all the time. I'll get this mess." Before I knew it she was sweeping it all up. I can't even handle it! In this picture she was dancing with Angelina and was very insistent on looking just like her (perky bow and all).

Phoebe: baby girl's vocabulary is bursting at the seams! As she was leaving today with my mom to pick up Tilda she said "Bye bye Mama." I then said "Give me a kiss." and she blew me a big one. She also says, "Noooooo, cow, cat, dog, ruff ruff, hi, bay-bee, thank ewwww, nigh-nigh, mama, dad-dee, Tilde, Matilda, Tilda." I'm sure I'm leaving some out. I think she is trying to drop her morning nap, but she's a bit of a mess for it. Each day has its own learning curve. She is in to everything. I find myself as exhausted at night now as I was when she was a newborn. Fell asleep at 9 last night. Phew! She's the cutest though and I know I'll miss this sweet age. That pear print above her bed can be found right here. Phoebe's dress here.

I finally have a complete vision for the style challenge. I am super excited about it because I feel like it's very us and it makes me happy. With rain coming on sunday I'm giving us a deadline of tomorrow night. A little nervous about this... Too bad we don't have time to make these crazy awesome shutters! Sneak peeks can be found on instagram.

A new favorite pinner.

A recipe I'd like to try.

Some things on my wish list: here, here, here and here.

A beautiful read about finding the magic in your marriage.

Delicious warm weather drink. Love these two and their combining forces.

Have a great weekend!!
