Life Lately

We're getting ready for a fun + festive weekend over here, having our friends over on Saturday night and our Valentine's Day breakfast on Sunday.  I'm positive that our junk food consumption will be at maximum capacity... luckily, calories don't count on holiday weekends, right??

I just wanted to share a few snaps from this past week, as well as a few early Friday Favorites (we'll call them Friday Eve Favorites!) because there are some deals going on today that you can't miss! ;)  Fun fact:  Tyler backed up the photos on my phone the other night and it appears as though I have taken over 27,000 photos since I got my phone less than a year and a half ago. #snaphappy #yikes


Yes, we finally put up the baby gate.  Ellie is not a huge fan, neither are the cats.  It's kind of a pain but it is also nice to have.  It seems like just having the gate up, even if the door is propped open, helps keep Ellie from trying to make a beeline to the cat food five hundred times a day.  Also, Ellie is a huge fan of drinking out of straws (who knew?!), so she's been drinking so much more now.  It's a little messy, but overall I'm counting it as a win!

Now for some favorites...

Pottery Barn has their Friends & Family sale going on, including PB Kids.  You can get 20% off using code FRIENDS.  It's the perfect time to grab that overpriced Easter basket you might have your eye on. ;)  I haven't committed to one yet, but my current favorite is this one.  I'm thinking of adding my own personal touch to it if I decide to get it!

ILY Couture also has 20% off using code FANTASTIC through midnight tonight MST.  As you already know, my favorite shirt as well as my favorite "maternity" shirt I wore during my pregnancy are from here, but they also have many other cute ones (like this one!).

I'm loving these tulle bows - so perfect for Spring! They would go especially great with Baby Gap's ballerina-esq line, like these tulle skirt leggings (Gap has 30% off today only using code ALLMINE).

These floral kitty ears that are totally too gorgeous for words.  Two of my favorite things wrapped up into one cute little headband.  Fingers crossed that I can get Ellie to keep them on.

These bibs are awesome for babies learning to feed themselves!  The little bucket catches (almost) everything Ellie drops, and she has discovered that she can reach in and grab it for a second (or third, fourth, fifth) shot at getting it in her mouth.  They're also able to get machine washed, but I've just been hand-washing them since it's easy enough to do.

These blackberry ombre popsicles look almost too pretty to eat - perfect if you're in need of a Spring/Summer treat to help beat the winter blues! :)

Hope you all have the best weekend and a fun Valentine's Day with your sweethearts!
