friday I’m in love.

Welcome back Friday! And Happy Half-Birthday to our sweet Eloise! I am hoping to have her quarterly update up soon.

{one} Playroom by Emily Henderson.

A Playful and Bright Playroom Introduction:

{via Style by Emily Henderson blog}

Oh Emily Henderson, how I love thee! She just revealed a sneak peek of the most adorable playroom this week and I am most definitely in love. I appreciate the mix of high and low-end décor (a lot of it is from Target’s Pillowfort Collection!) and effort to make it a nicely designed space that doesn’t scream pre-school. (That is pretty much my gripe with “playrooms” generally – way too many primary colors and plastic-y stuff!) Some day in the coming years (really, maybe just a few) we plan on bunking the kids together in one room and freeing up one of the bedrooms to turn into a playroom, and I pretty much want it to look like this one!

{two} Mexican Corn Dip.

Mexican Corn Dip - The traditional Mexican street corn is turned into the best dip ever. It's so good, you won't even need the chips here!

Every week, pretty much without fail, we have Taco Tuesday. It is nice to have one easy, predictable meal every week and every member of our family loves Mexican food! We roast yams, heat up refried beans (I love Amy’s refried black beans!), warm up tortillas, slice avocado, and shred cheese. And in the past month or so, we have also added this Mexican Corn dip to the mix and I think it’s safe to say it is a keeper. You can add it to tacos or eat it with chips as a dip (or even on its own, its that good!). I have been using frozen corn since we are definitely not in corn season, but I can imagine it would be SO much better with  corn on the cob fresh off the grill. We also have been mixing up the type of cheese that we use (both feta and goat milk gouda) and it has been super yummy!

{three} Sonnet James Valentine’s Day Sale!

If you have been following along for a while, you know I have a professed love for all things Sonnet James. These are the BEST dresses, especially for mamas with littles. I definitely don’t need anymore especially since I got a few for Christmas this year, though that doesn’t keep me from shopping! I love, love these dresses during pregnancy, and hope to wear a few of the styles post-partum (nursing friendly neckline is the key), and they are wonderful for late spring and summer in Seattle. Just throw it on with a pair of sandals or sneakers and you are out the door! Plus, a few of the styles are on sale, so go check it out!

Have a happy Valentine’s Day weekend and I hope you celebrate all weekend (and week) long!

And be sure to check out what Kendra is loving this week! What about you?
