Pinning Lately

Hi friends!

How was the weekend?!

Ours was a really good one. So good, in fact, that I hardly got any photos.

To start off, this summed up our Friday night:


I have yet to read the book (I know, a total sin), but I LOVED the movie and now I really want to read the book. And I do not recommend milk chocolate brownies for you real chocolate lovers out there. They’re not very rich and chocolate-y – boo!

A good chunk of the weekend revolved around preparing and hosting a birthday party for Cody on Saturday night. We made it fairly low key and invited our family and close friends. I guess it didn’t entirely feel low key considering we have LOTS of family, and then between our family and friends, there were what seemed like a ton of kids! I absolutely loved having all the kids around though. It was so much fun.


Instead of cake, we did a homemade ice cream sandwich making station. Not sure how I forgot to take a photo of this because I must admit, I was pretty proud of how it turned out. I got the inspiration from this on Pinterest:


Speaking of Pinterest, I thought it’d be fun to share what I’ve been pinning lately and a few of my thoughts about each pin. I pin all sorts of recipes (healthy and not), fashion and outfit ideas, home décor stuff, workouts, quotes, kids’ activities/ideas, you name it!

Talk about YUM! And there’s healthy ingredients in there… It’s a win-win.

Totally trying this recipe with Hunter. Hoping he loves it!


Perfect for fall… Now if fall would just COME already, that’d be great.

I really love her layers. I actually got a trim and some layers like this added on Saturday! I’m loving it!


I adore this messy wavy/curly look.

Still throwing around the ombre look. If I went for it, I’d go for something similar to this.

This outfit has my name written all over it.


I’ve been loving this classy look that a blazer adds to an outfit. I actually just ordered a black blazer from ThredUp (<—affiliate link) the other day – I’m so excited about it!

Leapord flats are at the top of my wish list right now! Love the jacket too.


Kids’ Activities

I think Hunter would love something like this. He’s been SO into animals lately.


Play dough – so fun!

Hydrangeas are my favorite flower. Would love to do this for our dining room centerpiece.

Love for a girl’s nursery. Maybe someday…

LOVE this for a girl's nursery!  Light and soft, but colorful w/ lots of texture.. and not matchy-match at ALL! Awesome!

Would love to do a pergola like this over our back patio one day.
