Happy Friday + Fave Links

Happy Friday, friends! I instacarted wine, had take out delivered, ate two tiny pies in less than 24 hours, and “shushed” and bribed my way through both newborn and toddler meltdowns, but can say I’ve almost survived my first week of single parenting two children… hooray!  We are celebrating my dad on Saturday– both his birthday and his return from a 10 month deployment in the middle east– with a pool party and barbecue and will likely take it easy the rest of the weekend.  The weather here has been in the sixties and seventies in the mornings and evenings and it’s made for the best neighborhood walks with the girls!  What are you up to this weekend? Keep reading for some of my favorite things from around the web and otherwise…

When your dad’s boss delivers your birth announcement to the world…

I bought this cookbook last week upon my cousin’s recommendation and have been flipping through it and dog earring pages incessantly since.

Style inspiration for our favorite coast? Yes, please!

We adore Ever’s Parachute sheets and loved seeing them in this nursery, too!

Bedtime with Parker is a constantly negotiation of which books and how many we will read.  We both love this one!

The shirt  I bought this week with a two week old in tow.

I am such a creature of habit when it comes to makeup and almost never think of transitioning my fall makeup routine.  Love this motivation to do just that…

This dining room designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel is the thing dining room dreams are made of! (We are using this same light fixture in our new playroom so it was fun to see it installed here!)

Parker and I made these vegan and gluten free banana date muffins last week and they were AMAZING!

My all-time favorite lip color… (The shade is called Rikugien)

It’s not too late to help out Houston
