happy weekend!

what do you have planned this weekend, lovely readers?

we'll be celebrating the first birthday of a smiley little girl whose parents we knew when they were kids themselves -- well, mitchell knew her mommy and daddy when they were 14 years old...and now they have two kids. it still feels magical to me, even as we approach a time where lots of our friends have children.

for her present, i'm making a stop at one of my favorite childrens' gift places - little miss matched. do you know about it? so adorable - and all about not being too matchy, which i love. in addition to other cute clothes and accessories, they sell socks in "pairs" of three - each with a different design so they can be mixed and matched. one of my favorite items is their set of 9 which yields 36 combinations!
i'm particularly excited because getting to said birthday party requires passing an west elm store, which i have not yet inspected in the flesh. so there's that too, and we will be leaving with extra time for that. i can't wait to see certain things in person, like this, this and this. oh, and these lights too.

how gorg would this glass link chandelier (above) look over a really rustic farmhouse table like these?


okay that's enough day dreaming for one day. see you back here on monday!

OMG I can't believe you've never been to a West Elm store - I'm jealous that you have that experience to look forward to - give yourself LOTS of time. My local West Elm store just closed. Sad Day. They sent out an email that everything was 40% off. I went that evening and everything was GONE. It was like the store never existed...LOL.
