I am kinda in love with the simplicity of this aeonium print, from Minted

The 44 x 44 framed would be really lovely on a white wall.., I can't stop thinking about it.
But there are two reasons I haven't pulled the trigger.
1. Too matchy with my Peter Dunham fiddle leaf fig pillows.
2. I have really been on the hunt for original art.

I am also in love with these pulls from Anthro.

Problem is, I have no place to put them.

I often dream about doing window treatments using this malachite fabric.

Bright white walls, black lacquered furniture..,swoon.

Looks like I am on a green kick! What colors are on your radar?

Vegas baby.., I mean Vegas with babies

We love to travel. We live in the middle of America.., There are no great weekend get aways.

Getting out of here on a routine basis is a must for our family.

For O's first spring break- we met my parents in Vegas.

The hiking was fantastic!

I really wanted to find a souvenir but I just couldn't do it!

The Bellagio- it smelled like it looked..,
Which made me wonder- how much flower smell do they pump in there?

Ellie was not impressed

my current favorite outfit

The aquarium

Only pic I took on the strip.., Maybe because E kept asking if princess lived there(?)

Hoover dam was amazing!! 

I look away for one second and this happens!
Climbing a cable..

Ellies curent fav outfit

Loving some brass detail

We were able to leave the kids one night with my parents.
Lance and I had a date.., just like old times in Vegas before kids..,
But we were home by 10.., too exhausted to stay up later!
Ha! I guess kids will do that to you!!

monday morning pick me up

E and I had to run to Target this morning for a few items.., I found this little storage tote that is perfect for my lemon tree.  Pretty cute!

I also just happened to find these chairs online.., 

Could be a possibility for our patio! What do you think?

Cheers to Monday!!

Spring photo dump

 Early spring according to my phone..

We got some exciting mail

This girl rocks my world!

She found a pony named Gus.
(don't worry, he doesn't mind)

And slept in her big girl bed

My original baby went to sleep.
I am still so sad.

Owen gave Gus some love.
They are sad too.

I did some antiquing. Love the orange bench, but I wish there were two.
I could see them in a leopard print.
(the gold table above was pretty killer too)

No fooling, I am still running in the rain, sleet and snow.

But spring came to my table.

Every girl needs a pair of wings.

Owen hasn't enjoyed the spring either.

He did however, feel the need to put a tattoo on his face.

Happy weekend y'all!
