hello from Illinois!! We moved back last week and we're settling into our new home. We spent a solid week unpacking and if I'm honest there are still a few I'm struggling to put away (mostly frames!) But we are LOVING being back in Illinois. We've seen a lot of family already (my parents, my two brothers and their families, my grandparents, my uncle and his family, H's dad, and one of my best friends and her son!). Violet has had the best time playing with her cousins. Our neighborhood is really family friendly with a park and library within walking distance. And I finally got a new car (!!) and IKEA is less than 20 minutes away (trouble). We already bought a new dresser for our bedroom and some bookshelves for the living room. They are perfect! Here are a few other things that I'm loving lately:
pineapple candle - The ceramic pineapple is adorable and available in white, pink and yellow. The candle inside smells great too! After the candle is gone I want to reuse the container to store jewelry.
nashville is my latest tv addiction. yes, I know I really need to start reading more books. any suggestions?!
gingham bikini top + bottom - I already have a navy bikini bottom, so I'm tempted to buy a new bikini top for summer. I love this gingham print!
mini saddle bag - I'm still in diaper bag everyday territory but I would like a small crossbody bag for the occasional date nights and lunches with my girls.
and for baby:
heart sunnies - Violet always plays with my sunglasses so I'd love to get her a pair of her own -- and how can you resist those heart frames?!
