Oh Hey Friday!

July 18, 2014

Happy Friday! Let's do this....

{one} I put my birthday money to good use and hit up the amazing Nordstrom sale. I got this cute maxi dress (it's like heaven to wear...so comfy!) and these Kendra Scott earrings. Actually, I got two pairs of earrings, the blue (already sold out!) and the grey. LOVE!

{two} Speaking of birthdays, did you enter my super amazing favorite things giveaway? If you didn't you better get your booty in gear because, hello, it's awesome. 

{three} Also, in more birthday news, my husband got me a kindle!!!! He actually got something off of my wishlist...which has never happened. And now I am spending every waking minute reading Gone Girl. I am like two years late the party, but oh my word, it sucked me in! I can't put it down. And now my husband is regretting this purchase because all of my free time = reading. I missed reading so much....it feels so good to do a little something for myself! 

{four} Citrus Lane does it again! Our box arrived yesterday and they totally knocked it out of the park this time. For those of you who are new here, Citrus Lane is a subscription service for little ones....you get a box once a month filled with fun toys and goodies. I've always been impressed with the things we received and they are usually things I would never have known about otherwise. Click here for 50% off your first box and free shipping!

This month was a little different in that Citrus Lane let me pick one of the items in our box...so I picked the My First Camera from Plan Toys and am totally patting myself on the back. Hudson LOVES it. He has been wanting to play with my camera for awhile now, so this is perfect for him. He walked around the house saying "cheese mama" and took my picture. Love him so. We also go an Aqueduck Faucet Extender that I've been meaning to buy for awhile now. I think it will help Hudson reach the water better when he washes his hands. Also in our box was a Silicone Placemat (love), a Mighty 4 Pouch from Plum Organics, and some Purlisse sunscreen for me. Such a good box this month!


{five} My friend Emily from Dear Owen has some beautiful things in her Etsy shop, Dear Owen & Co. She is so talented and made this nursery set...isn't it dreamy? I'm definitely keeping her in mind when we have another baby some day! Be sure to check out her shop....I promise you that you will love it!

  3. So glad you got some good stuff for your birthday, sweet girl! I'm late to the party too on Gone Girl, but after seeing so many people saying good things about it, I think I'll pick it up. It's about time I got some new reading material. Happy Friday! :)

  9. Cute dress! That was a well-timed birthday! I was surprised by how much I like reading on an e-reader. I assumed I'd be a paper book person but I read EVERYTHING on my iPad these days. Loved Gone Girl too. Can't wait for the movie.
