This Week // 5.02.14

Why hello May… How did you sneak up like that? It's our first week back from Spring Break and, with this week's wild weather and extreme heat, it literally feels like we've skipped right into Summer. I'm hoping that Mother Nature calms down and we can go back to enjoying the last month of Spring.

Here's what caught my attention this week--

I never thought I'd say this but… I'm kinda crushing on muscle tees. Some with a Parisian bend and others that are floral and feminine. This one makes me want to go to the beach. Guess I better start toning the biceps!

I've been holding on to some of my boys' favorite T-shirts for several years now, never quite being able to part with them. This beautiful story and lovely quilt touches my heart. Have a tissue ready.

My new favorite home scent can be found at discount retail stores and plugs into a wall. It's inspired by our National Parks and is limited-edition, so get it while you can! I have "Hawaii" plugged in right now and it's almost like being there. Almost.

I loved this Ikea-hack light fixture when I first saw it a few years ago, and I love this new version even more!

Since I could never wear them (bad left foot / bad right knee), I wish I could live in a room that looks like this shoe collection. Whimsical, fun, and eye-catching… yet tasteful (not to mention spendy).

We thoroughly enjoyed our Spring Break. The kids spent a few days at camp, then we ventured out to Palm Desert to visit with good friends and enjoy the Easter festivities. On our way home, we stopped and enjoyed dinner with family. Then the next day we headed out to Universal Studios in Hollywood and leisurely spent 3 days there. The wait times were short and the weather was crisp. Perfection. It was a full, but not overly-scheduled break… Just how we like it.
