Five on Friday | Things That I'm Loving

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 
I honestly cannot believe that it is already Friday again. I probably sound strange and/or ungrateful saying that. I imagine the sentiment of most is "thank goodness!" Yet, Fridays don't hold the same meaning that they used to for me. Motherhood/parenthood/adulthood/responsibility-hood changes things a bit. Unless we manage to snag a babysitter well in advance, our Friday nights are very similar (A.K.A. the same) as our every-other nights. My biggest reaction to Friday is simply shock that another week has come and gone. I actually am pretty excited for the weekend for one simple fact: Sam gets to stay home. Klair and I enjoy him so much, it's nice to have him around all day. And, although we don't often do anything too elaborate and we're certainly not partying the weekend away, the end of the week is really enjoyable because my little family gets to be together. 

This weekend we're planning to spend some time with our extended family for a birthday party and early Mother's Day celebration. Also, weather and time constraints permitting we are going to try and make it to a tulip festival that is happening at a nearby garden. I'm really hopeful we can go. Being surrounded by thousands of colorful blooms and listening to the "wows" my daughter is likely to elicit sounds heavenly. What fun things do you have planned for the coming weekend? 

Here are my current picks for the week. I am in desperate need of some boyfriend jeans, and these are a great candidate. I love the look of mixing the casual (jeans and a plain gray tee) with pieces that are a bit more elegant. The pink blazer is both the perfect color and style for spring. And those shoes! I've always liked the oxford look, but I'm particularly fond of this summer-friendly lace-embellished pair. And, of course this dream outfit didn't feel complete without a pretty little statement piece. I like the way the soft green hues compliment the salmon pink blazer. 

I'm beginning to think this "Five on Friday" thing is more dangerous than I realized. I want everything in that collage...
