hello erin »

FIVE on friday.

WHEW. what a week! I feel like we have an amazing weekend planned that’s really going to kick off this turkey-day-holi-day in an excellent way.

Brought to you by the lovely ladies behind: The Good Life. A. Liz Adventures. Carolina Charm. & Hello! Happiness.


I swear I went into anthro to nab a few gifts- and definitely came away with a few lovelies for me. This pink sweater and un-flattering- yet almost flattering-but it has elbow pads which makes it a total win- dress totally came home to live in my closet.  In my defense my “winter” wardrobe is seriously lacking.



My poor life the new few weeks (or months?). I just need to repeat to myself “its all worth it” as our life gets thrown into disarray while we do a few home improvement renovation projects. First up is hardwood in lex’s playroom (all the toys are currently residing in our living room. which REALLY makes me appreciate the playroom. And i’m convinced this kid is SPOILED). And in 10 days we start our master bathroom re-do. I think my husband and i (finally) agree on how it’s going down. And it happens to involve this pretty piece of prettiness. But for the next few days our poor living room looks like a toy store.



I nabbed this swing peacoat while gap was having their F&F. It came and i am SO excited to wear it this winter. I LOVE how its short- and the bottom isn’t too fitted. It’s a total win, and a major necessity for my NY girls trip (because letsbehonest there isn’t much use for it around here).



I ordered the Minnetonka Leopard Kilty Mocs for lex. And when their cuteness arrived I  i ordered myself a pair of the Minnetonka Women’s Leopard Kilty Moccasin so we could be twinzies. Can’t go wrong with leopard mocs.



We’re off to a date night tonight with one of our favorite couples. First up is a fancy steak dinner followed by Catching Fire. Yes, we’re being uber brave and seeing it the weekend it drops. But don’t worry i custom ordered my katniss jumpsuit a few weeks ago.

    B - I am on the hunt for a white wooden table for our girl. Where is that one from?? LOVE IT and the chairs! Yay for home renovation – BOO for the inconvenience it causes. Cannot wait to see the finished product though!

    EHayes - Ok, so I’m typically really anti leopard and animal print in general…. blame it on being an Irish (south) Jersey Girl and being the anti version of the Italian (north) Jersey Girl stereotype, but those moccs are adorable. I want matching!

    Cant wait to see the reno’s!!

    Courtney B - Is it just totally pathetic how much I wish we could be friends IRL? Yes, yes it is!
    LOVE that pink sweater! And if you ever decide to visit in good ol’ Utah you’ll get lots of use out of your new pretty coat 🙂
    Good luck with your home! It’s going to be beautiful and so worth it in the end!
