little boys

two of my best friends are pregnant and this past weekend I went with one to do some baby clothes shopping for her little guy. I've always been so smitten with how adorable little girls clothes are and this shopping trip taught me that boys clothes are cute too. I also realized that I'm going to be really picky when dressing my future children.. I think that's a bad sign already. Check out some of these studs:

organized: new uses for old things

Real Simple is favorite magazine and they have this great column called "New Uses for Old Things". I love the fun things they come up with! Some pinners have that same knack for coming up with awesome ideas.

This is my edition via the fab things I find on pinterest that others have thought up:

1. Use a cleaned out sunscreen bottle to hide keys, phone & money while at the pool. Sitting on your towel, no one will know whats in it!

2. Use an old frame & fish line to display your sunglasses and keep them safe from scratches & getting broken at the bottom of your purse!

3. Use a cute small frame and hooks to create your own key holder


would you use any of these things!?

skirts vs leggings

I've always thought of skirts & dresses to be worn on special occasions and not for the every day. Maybe it's the climate we live in, how it's 40 degrees most of the year, maybe I'm scared wind will come and my underwear will show, maybe I'm not that in love with my legs, maybe I never don't like to shave my legs,  whatever the reason I've always been more inclined to put on leggings or jeans than a skirt or a dress and I feel like I'm missing out.

Here's to dressing more like a woman with a skirt or dress in the every day:

What about your? Do you wear skirts or dresses other than to weddings? Do you have a go-to skirt look?

blankin on friday

1.  My favorite color is    white, purple & gray (can I have 3?)  .

2.   My home decor color palette includes   gray & green   .

4. The color I detest is    pink & red .

5. If you were to look in my closet most of the colors you'd see would be    grays, muted purple, black & white.

6. A color that I simply cannot pull off no matter how hard I try is    mm not sure, my skin tone sort of works for all colors, so my mother tells me... .

7.  The color of my favorite dress is   navy blue & orange .

uncommon goods

I'm always looking for new place to buy gifts online,. I recently came across... uncommon goods and I love it!! This site has so many fun and different ideas for gift giving!

For my dad I found this wine & cheese holder. My dad loves camping and loves wine. I thought this would be a fun thing for him and my mom to have while needing a place to rest their wine glasses while camping or while we are at the beach. Looking for a gift like this? Check out some other fun things they have as gifts for wine lovers.

We haven't been able to take it camping or to the beach yet since it's been cold out, but this guy will get LOTS of use over the summer. We tried it in the backyard a little bit in between all of the rain & snow we've been having in the NW.

And for my husband I found this iphone charging dock! I thought it would be a fun way to display his phone while its charging on our nightstand! They have lots of other awesome iphone accessories!

Something else I'm loving, this necklace-- check out some other religious gifts here.

Check it out: find anything fun you'd like on there?

you're my prince of peace

Source: via Olivia on Pinterest

I will sing to (You are Lord of Lords)
 And worship (You are King of kings)
 The King who (You are mighty God) 
Is worthy (Lord of everything) 
I will love and (You're Emannuel) 
Adore You (You're the Great I am)
 And I will bow down (You're my Prince of peace) 
before You (Who is the Lamb)
 I will sing to (You're my living God)
 And worship (You're my saving grace) 
The King who (You will reign forever)
 Is worthy (You are ancient of days)
 I will love and (You are alpha, omega)
 Adore You (beginning and end)
 And I will bow down (You're my Savior, Messiah) 
Before You (Redeemer and friend) 
You're my Prince of Peace 
And I will live my life for You
