friday I’m in love.

Welcome back Friday!

{one} Anthro Knotted Hair Ties.

Even with much shorter hair than I have had for years, I always keep a hair-tie on my wrist because it will inevitably end up in a ponytail or bun at some point during the day. While I like the thicker fabric ones – that aren’t supposed to leave creases but they totally do! – like these Emi-Jay ones, they don’t really hold my hair well unless I have two or three of them… So I was excited to see these knotted hair-ties when I was perusing around Anthro the other day. They hold up my hair with a single tie, plus they are cuter around my wrist than a normal hair-tie – score!

{two} NPR’s How I Built This podcast: Kate and Andy Spade.

Kate Spade: Kate & Andy Spade

{via NPR}

I know podcasts are all the rage these days and I have enjoyed all of them that I have ever listened to, but I still haven’t gotten on board as a regular listener (sort of like reading novels… law school ruined me!). But Aaron is super into podcasts as he listens to them on his commute each day. He recently shared this podcast about Kate and Andy Spade, creators of kate spade new york, and I LOVED it! It was the perfect thing to listen to while I was working on a last-minute project for Baby Foot’s nursery and I am looking forward to listening to a few of the other podcasts in the series!

{three} Birthday Love.

{Birthday/Valentine’s Day date night with my love at Serafina // blowing out the candles with Eloise}

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of the birthday love this week. I got so many sweet text messages, phone calls, and Facebook posts that really made my day. My birthday has always been a really special part of the year for me and this year did not disappoint! And while, of course, I would have been more than happy to welcome Baby Foot on this day, I am very grateful that I don’t share a birthday with my child! I was spoiled by friends & family all weekend going into my birthday and into the 14th: a fresh bouquet of flowers, date night at my very favorite restaurant, a handmade watercolor heart from my favorite pre-schooler, a load of presents, and a much-needed mani/pedi!

Also, I wanted to add that this is going to be my last Friday I’m In Love post (or any blog post for that matter depending on baby’s timing!) for a while. We are hoping to be snuggling a brand-new Baby Foot by this time next week (which I promise we will share as soon as there is news either here, via email/text/phone, or via Instagram or Facebook) and then I am likely going to take a bit of a blog hiatus while we find our new normal! (Though I am planning on continuing to do weekly updates with Baby Foot – for the first 52 weeks! – just like we did with Eloise, though the first ones may not be posted in real time.)

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