a few favorites [and a giveaway reminder!]

Happy Friday to you! I thought I'd end the week by sharing a few favorites, so here goes!

one. rings. 
I don't wear a ton of jewelry, and the jewelry I do wear is pretty simple. Think stud earrings, two rings, simple necklaces with a tiny charm on them [though right now, no necklaces since I don't want them broken by curious little hands]. After Emerson was born I was gifted a ring with his birthstone in it, when Oliver was born I suggested that a ring with his birthstone might be a nice little gift. But instead I was gifted something else [which I love]. Then the other day I was looking around and stumbled across these beauties. And now I need them. Forever and always.

two. more rings. 
Years ago I started wearing a toe ring. I'm not sure how I came about to start wearing one, but I did. Feet are just kind of 'eh' and gross to me so I'm all for anything to help them not be so gross: nail polish, cute sandals, toe rings. A few years ago my favorite toe ring broke and I just haven't found one to replace it. Since the weather is kind of getting nicer [except not really] and I was thinking about being able to wear sandals soon, I also remembered my long lost toe ring. I saw this one and thought I might have to give it a try. Add a little something to my feet. Because, well. Feet. ugh.

three. socks. 
If you've known me for long, it's probable that you know of my love of socks. I love them. I'm not sure what it is, but socks just make my feet happy [as long as I don't have to wear then when it's 97 degrees outside]. Maybe it's because socks cover feet and we all know how I feel about feet [see above]. But not just any socks will do. The socks have to be cute and have some personality. In the winter I like long, knee high socks - to help keep my feet and legs nice and toasty. But in the spring and summer when my legs need to breathe a little bit and the feet still need coverage? A nice little ankle sock is perfect. And naturally, plain, white, boring, athletic socks are just blah. The sock has to have some color and life to it. A print, a design, a shape. Something to make it happy. The other week I was at Old Navy and they were having a sale on socks - 5 for $5. Since most of my ankle socks from last spring and summer were worn out, I was quick to find five pairs.

four. chocolate chips. 
Earlier this week Landon was out of town [but yay! he's home again!]. While I hate it when he is gone, I do love that I can eat brinner every single night if I want to. And that's just what we do. Cereal, oatmeal, and pancakes were our main meals this week. A way to make the pancakes even more special? Add chocolate chips. We never do this when he's home, but I always want to. I think I feel guilty adding them if he's around for some reason. Anyhow, he was gone, it was me and the boys, so in went the [dairy free] chocolate chips! My favorite kind of dinner right there. 

five. giveaway!

I used to wear a toe ring all the time, too! I had forgotten all about it until I read your post!

Dude all we eat when Jim is gone is breakfast too!

The new blog design is adorable. I used to wear a toe ring too, but my toes would swell when my feet got hot, and Houston, so, yeah. That was the end of that. We eat a lot of brinner too when Isaac is out of town...and sometimes when he is home too. It's just yummy, and there isn't enough time in the mornings for any hot foods usually.

I love those rings! So pretty! There is absolutely nothing wrong with brinner. Ever. :)
