Hello Monday

Hello bird shirt. 
 I am so happy I finally found you and you were only $9. 

 shirt: Target ($9)  shorts: old American Eagle  sandals: Target  bracelets: made by me  
giraffe necklace: gift from friend


Hello braid.  You have become a summer staple. 


 I couldn't be more excited to wear you many days a week. 
Thanks to one of best friends Rebecca for sending it to me.  I couldn't have felt more loved and cared about when I got it.  God is good to give me a friend like you!
(sorry there isn't a better picture of it.  I linked up a similar one.)

Hello Medieval Times. 
Despite your hefty price we had such a great time celebrating our sweet niece's 6th birthday. 


Hello Hope. 
I got this necklace from my sweet friend Alison who reminded me that I am not alone in my struggle through infertility and to hold on to hope for the future. 
Her friendship has become such a blessing.  

Hope Necklace 18 inch Chain

Hello Bachlorette Finale. 
I'm excited to be watching you in Indiana with one of my closest friends, Brittany. 

Hello Giveaway.
Today is the last day to enter to win! 

Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a new week!

I love the braid. While I admit that birds freak me out, that is definitely a cute shirt. (I'm just hoping this "birds on everything" trend goes away soon!)
