five on friday… friday the 13th

ONE. Entryway Love
Starting off today in the world of home decorating fun, once Caroline’s room is complete (still waiting on back ordered items to ship of course), we will be venturing to the foyer for some new touches to welcome our guests! I’ve been pinning a ton of entryway options I like, for overall inspiration to send to Kendall and she came over the other day to take measurements and talk lighting, rugs and runners, and console table vignettes to finish out the space. Hoping this will really pop with all the new painting we have had done, too. Here are some top contenders for the look we’re going for:

TWO. Blogging Rut… HELP?? 
I found this helpful brainstorming session over at Elle & Co the other day and thought it was a great exercise to get you me thinking outside the box when it comes to blog planning for future post opportunities and such (and the fact that it only takes 30 minutes is short enough where any of us can carve out some time to strategize). I’m ALWAYS trying to come up with new, original content to keep you entertained so by all means, send me your suggestions!

THREE. The Parent’s Anniversary 
This is the craziest week during the entire year for my family… and today we start off the fun by celebrating the anniversary of my Mom and Dad AKA Mimi and Pappy!! It’s been 24 years since we “adopted” my dad and I’m so thankful my Mom was able to find her best friend… We love you guys so so much and are so excited to wish you a happy anniversary. Thanks for setting such an incredible example for Jeff and I, and for loving our little minis and spoiling them rotten while teaching them the life lessons only grandparents can… WE HEART YOU!

FOUR. Gap Friends and Family 
This weekend, Gap is having their fantastic Friends and Family promotion, where you can save 40% on your entire purchase (use code FFBEST online)! This is when I usually stock up on play clothes for the girls and some goodies for  myself, as well… some goodies headed our way include these adorable, and COLORFUL springtime essentials:

FIVE. Love of My Life’s Birthday
Tomorrow, we get to celebrate this handsome man’s 31st birthday… to my best friend, confidant, love of my life, and baby daddy, I love you to the moon and back and thank you for making my life the life I always dreamed of. There is no one else I’d rather share do this with and I am forever grateful for God bringing you to me. I’m lucky that I get to wake up with you every morning and fall asleep by you every night. You’re the ABSOLUTE best Jeffrey Edward and I love you the most, forever and always. Now let’s have fun tomorrow with our amazing friends at dinner… complete with birthday baked goods of course.

    Happy Anniversary to your parents, and happy birthday to your husband! Hope you all have fun celebrating both fun events:) Loving that pleated, ruffle neck top from Gap. While I won't be wearing it over this 8 month pregnant bump for a while, I am SO tempted to go ahead and grab it for after baby!:)

    Happiest of birthdays to Jeff, and Happy Anniversary to your parents! I love that you were "adopted," too! My dad came into my life when I was four, and I've never looked back! PS LOOOOOVE GAP's sales! The outlet near us just had 40% of baby and kids PLUS 40% off your purchase – I went a little crazy, but I can't wait to get more at GAP! Happy Weekend!!
