things i love.

all of {her} cute outfits & photos.



cute vintage giveaways.
my step-mom is having a giveaway on her blog
because she opened an etsy shop for those vintage kiddos out there.
go enter her giveaway! and check out her shop!

sweet little romper.
i actually love all of the things for sale on that site
not to mention the backgrounds in the photos.


and last, but not least...
{these}.
they are amazing. i am in love with them.
if only i was a size 9.
sigh.

swings&smiles.

yesterday i got to watch the boys for a little while
and it was in the 50's outside!
so, naturally, we went out and played!

me & linco-j {not quite ready for a picture}

levi & i watched...

... as malacai & lincoln ran & played around us.

{i didn't realize how many pictures i took of little weebs until i just started this post.}
oops! he's just too sweet!!

brother love. & mal pushing levi on the swing {do you see him?}.

a little happy boy swinging.

but it wasn't all playing... we also started picking up branches
that are all over our yard from the many storms this winter.
lincoln was picking up the biggest branches and was soo proud of himself.


here is my day-after-st.-patty's-day outfit:
{because i didn't get to wear my dress on st. patrick's day}

vintage clover dress: thrifted
vintage leather boots: thrifted
vintage leather belt: thrifted

i worked at the pizza shop all day today.

{because it would have had pizza sauce and grease all over it}

sigh.
but tomorrow it's supposed to be 49 degrees with sun.
i can't wait!
