Friday Favorites

Our plans are filling up for this weekend, and I’m getting excited for some grilling, picnicking, and relaxing with friends and family! I really can’t believe we’re approaching the last week of May!

Here are some favorites from the week:


We sent our camera to Nikon to get fixed, and it came back as good as new! I am happy to have it again to capture my favorite little guys :)

I love their similar (but not completely matching) light blue shirts!

He is getting so big, and starting to climb on EVERYTHING!

I tried to get a shot of them together, but this was the best I got :)

My favorite outfit of the week was this crochet-back, white kimono that I posted about on Wednesday. I can’t say that I’ve ever worn a kimono before, but I’m definitely in love with the comfortable yet elegant feel of it!

Thank you for the positive feedback on Tuesday’s breastfeeding post! Goodness, I am going to miss Ephraim being a baby. Nursing him has been one of the best things of my life.

Did you catch yesterday’s post? I guest-blogged for Erika and claimed my crazy! It was so much fun to share all of my silly quirks with you!

I know I’ve mentioned my robins every week for about a month, but these photos were too good not to share! It was so amazing to watch the mom and the dad bringing worms and bugs to their three babies for two weeks. They came every 10 or 15 minutes, from sun-up until sun-down. The babies got their feathers and plumped up so quickly! Yesterday morning, I watched all three of the fledglings fly out of the nest. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Watching the nest for a month has hands-down been the best science/nature experience I’ve ever had!

The babies right after they left the nest.

And one hiding in the bush later in the day :)

Steve and I really loved the “The Kennedys” mini-series on Netflix. We finished it on Wednesday night, and we wish there were more episodes! It’s both fascinating and heart-breaking. Now, we’re back to our regularly scheduled home-improvement shows ;)

Hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
