Finally it feels like spring and what a difference that makes!  The sun is shining and highs in the 60s and 70s for the next 7 days!!  YAY!!

And now a random assortment of things for this Friday:

hello spring!

We've been out on bike rides and walks and playgrounds.

Also every pair of pants is currently ripped in the knee!  So much for hand me down pants for Reid!

And since it's been so much nicer I'm motivated to shop for summer!


Since Shay totally swears by J.Crew shorts I thought I'd try them instead of J.Crew Factory ones that I had previously.  They were 30% off so each pair was only $25.  I never know what size to order so I ordered a 2 and when they got here they were too big and our closest J.Crew is an hour away so the mail exchange is coming.  In my opinion I think they run big if you are interested.


I used my Shopbop credit from Amanda for this adorable one piece.  I love that it's a one-piece and that little fabric on the stomach really makes it feel more covered up, yet still cute and young.  Only too bad that my chest did not fit!  #sideboobage

I will not include my selfie here.  Who has D cup bathing suit suggestions?!  I think this one may be next to arrive because it actually has bra sizing not just s, m, l.

White jean search

I'm on the search for some white jeans.  I'm considering these.  Do you have a pair that you love?  Please share!  
Also white denim shorts??  I've heard these are great- but not sure how much I'll wear them so they are a bit more about $100 more than I'd like to spend.  Then I saw these at Target- they are more in the budget, but not sure I want cuffed hem.  And as I was searching to link those I found these.  These may be the winners!  Send over your faves!

New (old) house plans

In about a month we'll be moving back to our old house and I'm hoping to make some small changes like light fixtures, paint colors, staining or painting our table, and I even found myself in a granite warehouse while Carter was at school yesterday.  Yikes!  It was only a year ago that I was there picking out granite for our kitchen remodel.  

It seems as though I can't stop with the renovating.  I'm not sure what we'll really do because we want to make some improvements but don't want to just throw away money.  

And now the link ups with April, Amanda, and Erika!

Happy weekend to you!


  1. Renovations are a lot of fun, but also a LOT of stress. I remember picking out counter tops for our guest bathroom and being like "I DONT KNOW!!!!" I hope it all goes well for you guys and turns out wonderfully!
    Yay for Spring-like weather finally!!! I'm so excited for a weekend of outdoor stuff! Have a great one!

  2. Oh my gosh I just found a pair of white jeans from Loft after a year long search no joke - they are so flattering and comfy!! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I love J Crew shorts :) They are my fav!!Chelsea @ thewilliamsjourney1.blogspot.com

  4. I love getting outside during the spring! I am on the hunt for new white jeans, but the ones I currently have and love are fro mExpress!

  5. I will have to try those JCrew shorts...I always go for the factory ones, and their material has changed, so they fit funny now, I think! LOVE that bathing suit and white jeans...so hard to find!! I have a white pair from JCrew! Ha...they're cotton, no jean though. I did snag a cute pair of jean ones at GAP Factory this year!


I love to read your thoughts! Thanks for your comment!
