happy things to end the week with.

when we were little, my pappa would buy those pink coconut twinkies and give them to us because we were his twinkies.
♥ today is my Pappa's birthday!!! and also our stella bear turns 1 today! here's her smiling at the camera this morning while i was having my cup of coffee (as you can kind of see, i slept in my lucky MAVS shirt!) loves of my life. i wish i was home to enjoy the birthday dinner my momma is putting together for the family tonight. read more at twinkie's blog to see how wonderfully blessed we are to have an amazing father.

i also wish i could have a dog birthday party for stella and invite you all over with your pups. how fun would that be? i'd get gourmet dog cookies and we'd have it at a dog park so they could all run around together. 

♥ how beautiful is this print?! my favorite kind of artwork and it's titled "sisters." i was terribly lucky to win this Hue & Hum print giveaway that the ever sweet Rhianne was hosting. Thank-you love! it's perfect.

♥ remember how excited i was when i purchased these two toned tumbleweed sunnies for my upcoming trip to SF? i lurve them!!! they came in and beca was right-- doug did make them extra special for me. You need to treat yourself and grab a pair! you'll be seeing these again for sure when i get back from my girl's trip and show you photos. 

speaking of beca... you MUST check out this fun post on her blog today. my husband will be proud with his 15 minutes of blog fame that WASN'T on this blog - ha! really, i loved being in a post with other girls we adore but seeing our guys in their shop's creations... awesome!

♥ i'm a girl who lives in heels but standing the whole time i'm at work is no bueno in 4 inch stilettos. i decided to suck it up and go get some flats that were comfortable & because we can actually wear trainers to work, i wanted something that was girly still and would go with dresses. i LOVE these airwalks like you wouldn't believe (actually my feet love them more). i wore them with the floral dress claire gave me for my birthday.

♥ marina, my niece and her smile. she steals my heart and always makes me happy!

also lovies! Monday i'm hosting a giveaway that i'm pretty excited about. Don't forget to come back and check it out... xo

Happy birthday to your Dad! Your dog is adorable, and I need a pair of those sunglasses.

Gracie said...

Happy birthday to your papa!! And to your sweet Stella. It's birthdays all around.

I live in flats because I can't wear heels very well. I guess that's why I'm obsessed with ballet flats, TOMS etc.

You're sweet niece. Beautiful smile. x

April said...

Happy birthday to your Poppa! And your puppy!! :) I want to go to a dog birthday party someday. Or I'll just host one. That'll be another time when I'll be wishing we all lived close together! lol
Love that print. Definitely checking out the Etsy shop. Lucky girl! I won a giveaway this week too!
I really love your flats! I bet you look great in those with that cute dress. :)

Claire said...

awww Happy Birthdays!!! I wear flats all the time! i cant wear heels for longer than 10 minutes my poor back protests :(

Megan said...

Oh Happy birthday wishes to your papa and your puppy, what a special day!!
I love those sunnies so much, I think I need some :-)

Abi P. said...

Stella bear is totally smiling for you! How adorbs! I wish we really could get our pups together. They would love each other :)

Elaine said...

happy happy birthday to your pappa! i love seeing those older photos of you guys!

those shoes look adorable that i just might have to pick some out for myself! i live in flats, runners and flip flops these days. my stilettos have been shoved at the back of our shoe closet, never to see the light of day again unless (a) hubby and i have a date night that requires me to actually dress up; or (b) we have some sort of formal occasion to do go; or (c) i go back to work!

happy birthday again to your pappa!
