• What’s Lovely This Week

    week in Instagrams | Oh Lovely Day

    We had another lovely and super busy week around here! Some highlights from my instagram feed involved shooting 5 DIY projects that will be coming your way over the coming weeks, prepping to co-host two baby showers this month, eating cookies, playing with my mini-me, and getting a little quality time with my honey. We saw The Spectacular Now (from the writers of 500 Days of Summer) and it’s a really sweet and real film that I highly recommend.

    the lovely shop

    did you know we have made some of our posts shopable? and we’ve also curated some of our favorite things and stuff from my wish list all in one place for your shopping pleasure. You can find the lovely shop here, and a collection of my favorite baby-related essentials on amazon here.

    In case you missed any of our posts this week:

    a country-chic backyard wedding (a must see for the wildflower bouquet and top-knotted bridesmaids)

    my biggest wedding-related regret is not hiring a wedding filmmaker. tips to find the right one for you.

    the loveliest engagement session I’ve ever seen (with the best floral crown ever)

    a romantic trip to NYC

    essentials and recommendations for the newborn baby phase

    Some of my favorite finds on the web:

    one of the prettiest & most festive handmade weddings I’ve seen in a while

    this dresser…in my house…now, please. so chic. And DIY!

    personalized baby leggings. as if my baby fever wasn’t bad enough already.

    a little obsessed with this gold + black dress 

    My favorite pins:

    love this for announcing a new baby’s name

    a gorgeous visual for how to properly set a place setting

    my new favorite dessert table sign

    I need this patio, with this sign to pump me up for swimsuit-wearing

    my obsession with thick hair and fishtail braids continues

    fabulous shoe with a big ol’ bow (brides and bridesmaids – think of the photos!)

    I’ve been getting inspired to get creative with Charlie’s school lunches by these bento boxes

    a fantastic (mr. fox) ring shot

    and again, as if my baby fever wasn’t bad enough… (this happened)

    •  On weekends, we nurse, cuddle, and nap together and it is my favorite. With the other boys I was always trying to get stuff done while they were napping. Since this is my last baby, I'm trying to really soak up all the moments I can -- one day I'll have plenty of time to get stuff done. For now I'll just be a hot mess that made the most of this baby time. Whenever I get a bit anxious about not getting things done, I re-read my favorite poem about motherhood: Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth! Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking! Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby, loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo. Look! Aren't her eyes the most wonderful hue? (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo.) Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, But children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby. Babies don't keep. Song for a Fifth Child By Ruth Hulburt Hamilton #battlefieldmotherhood #mommaandquincyselfies  Saturday mornings are about bros, basketball and babywearing. Side note: loving the ring sling for babywearing in this heatwave. It's the least hot of all of my babywearing options. #mywildbird #babywearing #quincyrhys #OLDsfavefinds
       This is the sky over LA right now. Apocalyptic, filter free and full of smoke  Stay safe and indoors  #sandfire #losangeles  Picking up Charlie just got a whole lot easier for me (and a whole lot pokey-er for Quincy ) thanks to our new @uppababy G-Link  #thefredrickboys
