Hello and happy Friday! My weekend feels like it's already begun, because one of my dear friends Erin came up from Phoenix with her son Kyler! The boys are a couple months apart and are just too adorable together. We had a mama/baby sleepover, Hank cooked us his "famous" enchiladas, we made homemade salsa and guacamole, and had the best night girl talking for hours. After Erin left this morning I got the great news that Sarah managed to get us AMAZING seats to the Taylor Swift concert in October when they went on sale this morning! I don't know how we'll even be able to wait that long, but it's definitely going to be worth it. I can't even explain how excited I am!
There's a lot more to share (lots of photos), but I am going to wait until my weekend wrap up on Sunday. Also coming up on the blog this week: a giveaway from Blowfish shoes and Yes Ma'am Sweets! Until then here are some links to start your weekend off on a fun note! Enjoy.
This week I guest posted in two wonderful places: first, I shared some beautiful vintage dress picks on Mandy's blog, and I also shared some new-mama "wisdom" on Rachael's!
This incredibly honest and beautifully-written post by one of the most inspiring ladies in the blog world is a must-read.
