random friday: take forty one!

a few of our random pictures from the week via instagram.....

the best sandwich EVER...

we take eating yummy macaroni and cheese seriously in this house...

as well as our first experience eating lucky charms marshmallows...

i designed a new watermark/logo for my photography pictures...

olivia crawled like this for a few days...

the twinnies went to petsmart for the first time and fell in love with the fishies...

bedhead stella gave me the stink eye when she woke up and found me in sissy's crib...

we had a lunch date with auntie a at wahoo's...

the girlies went to the park a few times...
and BIG NEWS, stella finally likes the swing!

this is how she used to feel about them...

i accidentally went target hungry and this things accidentally made their way into my cart.

and then today.
we went to the pediatrician.
i bought the girls donut holes beforehand to bribe them into happiness.
it worked for like 2 minutes.

but in those two minutes olivia managed to stuff her face with two donut holes at the same time.
impressive for a 16 month old.

the girls have caught up to their age group as far as physical stats, yay!

before they were always at 10% and 15% for things, sometimes 25%.
but now they're 25% and 50%!
no more signs of being premature babies.

OH and olivia took her first steps on wednesday!
three solid good ones.
her pediatrician says she'll be walking 10-12 steps in two weeks.
let's hope!

i have been working on some big plans for the shop and for my hair and for other stuff.
it'll take a few weeks for all of this to happen, but i promise i'll share it all with you soon!

so in the meantime, take a looksie at these ten things swimming around in my head lately!

1. the coolest color pixel quilt.
2. pink lemonade cookies? yes, please!
3. awesome chevron fabric from waverly. too bad it's out of stock at!
4. super cool knitted my little pony pattern.
5. the coolest glam nursery ever.
6. mirrored light garland. LOVE it.
7. caprese salad. which i went to buy basil for last night at the grocery store, but they didn't have any. what kind of a grocery store with 10 different types of fresh herbs runs out of basil?
8. the coolest moose head.
9. exactly how olivia sucks her fingers. correct hand, fingers, everything. LOVE.
10. pizza factory breadstick recipe. come. to. mama.


  1. 1. is Olivia still crawling like that? Sydney does it, too and we call it the spider walk. HUH-LARIOUS!
    2. Sydney used to have those same orange onesies with the flutter sleeves and the little rosette. When they outgrow those and the little grey sweaters they're wearing in the shopping cart, can I call dibs? :-) Awesome blog! Love it!

  2. I'm craving captain crunch berries now :) I think it's so cute when you dress the girls the same. Also, I wanted to make sure you got my email for the giveaway. If it went to your spam I can shoot you over another one.

  3. I love this post! Your girls are beautiful, and I love the style of your blog. I'm your newest follower!

  4. oh my goodness! little twin beauties!! They are absolutely adorable!

    So glad I came across your blog (coming over from Kendra's)! I am now following along and can't wait to read (and see) more of your precious little family!

    Hope you are having a wonderful week so far! xx

  5. that sandwich looks amazing! And I think I just fell in love with your two little... hoe precious are they?!

  6. Hello! Found your blog via "our little almanac" and might I just say your girls are so cute! I'm sure you hear that all the time but it's so true and it never gets old hearing how cute your kiddos are. My daughter loves to go petsmart and see the fish as well. We go there just to see the fish. It's free and enteraining. Win win in my book.


i love candy, sewing and the power to delete :) have a great day!
