    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.

    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

    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:

    a gorgeous visual for how to properly set a place setting

    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

    •  Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
       Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo
