Friday Finds 5.31.13

Here's what's been up this week in my world....

Hydrangea Blooms.
It's hydrangea season, finally!! And I've got a yard full of blooms that are just waiting to be cut. I can hardly wait to bring them inside. I am so trying this tip, anything that can lengthen those happy blooms on my table works for me. Check the link for the easy details!


Bubbly.
Stephen's birthday is coming up and we discussed our summer entertaining plans last night. I would love to have a few get togethers at our home, especially since we've worked on getting our porch beautified. One thing is for sure, I have to try these out. Party in a can.


Blog Design.
Did you notice my completed blog design? Love it. Laura worked her magic on this one and I couldn't be happier. All of her work is amazing, she's patient and works to make sure you are really happy. If you are in the market for a design, pay her a visit.

It's sale time!
 Just about everywhere I look. I'm still sorting through Nordstrom, Shop Bop, Loft to name a few. My friend posted an instagram picture of his and hers monogrammed beach towels and I think I need to order some for us. How cute are they?!



And a kid size towel for our little man....


This sweetness.
He is more fun by the day and I just can't get enough of his sweet cheeks and beautiful smile. He is always a snuggler, but yesterday he was especially affectionate to me and it made me feel like I was doing something right. I love that feeling.


And psst. In case you forgot...

Katie, he is such a doll! My hydrangeas are slow bloomers this year but will need to remember that tip!

Loving all your links. I need to check out the hydrangea one for sure bc I am not a green thumb but I really want to keep my blooms alive!

Sofia champagne is good, but more importantly it's so fun to drink it out of a can with a straw- not sure why it just is. Weeks is seriously getting cuter by the day!

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

Just discovered you through 5 on Friday and my first thought was "wow I love this blog design!". Def bookmarked Laura to switch mine up one day!

Katie,
Thanks for the tip on hydrangeas. I had some wilt in a day, so this will help.

I've been drinking the little Sophia's for a while now. They are a blanc de blanc wine is a special can, Francis Ford Coppola had developed and named the sparkling wine after his daughter, Sophia (love that). They are fun in a can w/ straw or glam in a flute and so portable! I'm happy to see them becomimg more popular....I have to 'special' order them.

Warmly, Kathleen

I learned so much in your post. Ha! Dropping by from FOF. Love the Sofia- never seen that. Towels are super cute. Your baby boy is adorable sitting next to my almost 2 year old while watching Choo Choo. AKA, Chugginton.Smiles and giggles will just get better as he grows.
