Thursday Randoms. Instagram dumps. And more.

1.Hair bows. 
Many of you have asked me where I get Elliana's hair bows. I actually have gotten them from numerous different places. Some from local boutiques. Others from stores like TJMAXX. And some have been sent to me by business owners. But for the most part, you can find the basic colored bows that E wears all the time on etsy. If you click on this link it will send you to the search that I use to find her bows.

2.Painting master bedroom
I'm doing it. We are doing it. Once we got our new furniture in the room, I realized that the color we painted our master 2 years ago was just not what I wanted. Anymore. So we have the color picked out and hopefully the room will be done THIS WEEKEND!!

3.Money in the bank vacation
As I have mentioned before, we are planning on going on a vacation with my family in August. And my dad is in charge of finding the place and such. Well, that is turning out to be a not so good idea. Because my parents have to stay at the most top notch hotel and such.... and as a result this trip is going to end up costing us. Which means... I need to start selling my body...... kidding.

4. Had to get new tires
That was lovely. Unexpected. But now my beauty has 4 new wheels.

5. 3 new books to read
I have 3 books that I am reading... and right now? I am too lazy to go find out what they are. I know 2 of the names. The Wedding, Nicholas Sparks. And Mercy, by Jodi Picoult.
1. Swinging. After a 3 mile walk. The queen E insisted.

2. The pretty trees we see on our walk. We love them.

3. Elliana at the grocery store when she sees something exciting. She's a princess.

4. The food preparation for this meal. That turned out AMAZING {minus the rice... I ran into some issues}. But it's so healthy and we will definitely be making it again. If you don't like rice, you can omit it.. or it would taste amazing with pasta as well!

5. My other wreath I mad a couple days ago. For only six dollars! And yes, I will be doing a tutorial next week.

6. The easter bunny is coming to our house. Well ya. He better. And I fully expect a basket for myself.

7. Our walks. Self-explanatory.

8. And I even grew some and took the dog with us one morning. That was interesting.

9. The Queen and the Princess. Our outfits before the Zoo over the weekend.

Also. I just purchased 5 different scarves. I am a bit obsessed? No? Totsy never fails me. If you haven't signed up {it's free}, do so! You get free shipping on your first order :)


  1. Oh my gosh...your wreath looks just like one that I threw together with fake hydrangeas :) Can't wait to see your tutorial!

  2. I love your easter sign and our outfit in the last pic!

  3. I'm sure you've already read The Notebook... The Wedding is the sequel to that. I didn't love it. The Notebook was a knock out, and the sequel just fell flat for me. I'd love to know what you thought!

  4. I always see the most gorgeous bows and want to buy them so bad. Unfortunately I don't wear them, and neither does my son!
    I'm pretty sure the super pretty pink tree is a cherry blossom. I love them, too bad I am allergic to pollen which they produce an extreme amount of.
    Love your guys' outfits for the zoo, so cute!
    Great pictures!

  5. I may or may not already have started buying bows for my future children. I'm a freak, I know. They make nice add-on bday gifts/baby shower gifts though too! ;)

    JODI PICOULT is my favorite author in the world- pretty sure I've read almost every one of her books. They are all just as good as the next!

  6. The chicken & black bean recipe looks delish! Great pics too :)

  7. I thought The wedding was pretty good, I love Nicholas Sparks and have all his books! You are so funny in your posts, I love reading them!

  8. love those scarves!

    & I read The Wedding a loooong time ago, but I remember I liked it!

  9. Love new paint--fresh start!

    Elliana's expression just kill me! She is so expressive. Does she happen to get that from her Mama? ;)

    I want to read those books. I am reading "Roses" by Leila Meacham. Thought I'd recommend it in case you would like to add a 4th! ;)

  10. The thought of new tires makes me cringe, only because we have a BMW too and have run flats. I would be annoyed to say the least!! And you girls are both so adorable!! I want a girl next!!!

  11. I love anything Nicholas Sparks. The wedding was awesome, you will like it. E is such a sassy pants. Imagine if you have another girl next!! You will really be in trouble...

  12. Five new scarfs? Wow =) And the tree that’s #2 is beautiful! I wish we had one of those. I’m glad you get to enjoy it.

  13. love the pictures! And aren't you also reading another one by nicholas sparks.. the best of me? I know that because I remember you mentioning it and I had just finished it. It's a good thing I have your back, lady! And nice on the zoo membership. Anddd loving the scarves. I am a scarf freak & knowing you are too just makes me love you even more! haha.

    2 weeks bia!

  14. Had to get new tires this week too! What a dumb, unexpected purchase. Woke up to a complete blowout and they had to at least replace two, but all of them needed new, ugh. Now I'm dying of anxiety to see what color you picked for you BR!!
