friday five.

Happy Friday! Sorry I've been MIA this week. It's been a crazy one and I was really preoccupied with some not so fun home-ownership things. But I wanted to link up with ChristinaApril, and Natasha and share a few things that have been on my mind lately:
 ONE: I bought the perfect-fit scoopneck tee from this post and I LOVE it. I just ordered another one in navy. It runs TTS and it's perfect for the in-between "it's cold in the morning but warm in the afternoon" spring weather. 
TWO: Did you guys see the home makeover over on Cup of Jo? It was for Joanna's sister Lucy, who recently lost her husband to lung cancer. Lucy's reaction to her new home was really sweet and it made me cry.


THREE: Things are heating up in Charleston -- it was 75 yesterday and it's going to be in the 80's soon. Beach weather will be here soon and I have my heart set on a new bikini top.
FOUR: Violet's first birthday party is this weekend!! I still have a ton of things to do for it but I finally decided what's on the appetizer + dessert menu. I'm going to make pimento cheese cups, crockpot mini meatballs, caprese skewers, and a dip (that's still tbd!) and there will be a cookie cake (thank you Harris Teeter) + cupcakes! I can't wait to watch Vi smash her little birthday cake :)

FIVE: When Violet started drinking formula she refused to take a bottle -- which was frustrating at first. But then we realized we got to skip the whole weaning her from a bottle thing. She drinks from a small cup with our help. We really like these cups from Nuby. They are BPA free, dishwasher friendly, and small enough for her to hold by herself in the future.

Have a great weekend!
