Happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is here. 

All of the President's Day sales have me so pumped about spring! I'm seriously having to hide my wallet so I don't buy ALLTHETHINGS. 

Buuuuut, since I've been wanting this dress for practically forever, I finally scooped it up while J.Crew Factory was having a 50% off everything sale earlier this week! I'm planning to wear it for Easter, so I'm praying for some good weather. 

And okay, okay...I put these in my cart, too. I can't resist these comfy shorts for summer! And who can say "no" to an elastic waistband? Not me! ;)

Seriously, y'all, can we talk about "This is Us?" It makes me bawl every single time. I thought that "Parenthood" was the best, but now "This is Us" has totally taken its place. Who else is watching? 

After 6.5 years of marriage, we finally broke down and purchased a new duvet cover {and shams!} on Sunday. It was high time: ours -- that I loved dearly -- had bleach stains {still not sure how that happened...} and just was getting gross after two little boys. 

So, we bit the bullet and ordered a new one from Pottery Barn, thanks to, what else, President's Day sales! We got it on the bed last night and I'm in love. 

And also? Can Pottery Barn please come make my bed every day?

And PPS: How I would love to register again for small appliances, every day dishes, kitchen gadgets, etc. for my anniversary. We're getting to the point where our pots and pans, some gadgets, etc. are needing to be replaced and holy moly, y'all, it can get pricey! Tell me I'm not alone?!


I was looking back at some of the recent pictures I've taken of the boys on various occasions, and I couldn't help but die laughing at some of the outtakes. 

It just makes me laugh because so many times, especially on social media, we {and I say "we" as a general term} can portray our lives to be so perfect, our houses so spotless, our cars so clean, our children angels, etc. So here I am to give you just one example of how perfectly imperfect our lives are over here and how, while they can be precious angels most of the time, Walker and Knox are just your typical little 3-year-old and 8-month-old boys who can be little toots. ;)
