{Friday Favorites}

I have never really done a Friday Favorites post on my blog so here goes! Here are some of the things I have been loving lately:

1. Blog showcase: The Londoner
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with all things London/UK. I have never traveled there but it is #1 on my list of places to visit. Until then, I have this blog to follow. Rose Thomas is a lifestyle blogger based in London. She spends time immersing herself in the culture of the world but mainly London. She has impeccable taste in clothing, travel and FOOD! I especially love her anti-diet outlook. Everything in moderation. :) She captures the city of London so well with her neighborhood features where she tries new restaurants and showcases different areas. It is basically an online life journal of her travels, what she eats, what she wears, what she cooks and where she shops. Hop on over if you are looking for some cultural inspiration. Sometimes I just go look at all the food images she posts. The cheeseburgers, Oh the cheeseburgers! #drool

 2. Millie's Baptism Invitations
Look how cute these are! This was an iPhone pic from her professional newborn pics. My mom zoomed in on the image and added it to the invite she designed on Tiny Prints . We didn't do any sort of birth announcements because she made such a dramatic entrance into this world and duh, everyone knew she was here. It was nice to be able to put these together for her special baptism day. I am especially excited because her daddy gets to perform the sacrament. I edited out address information so the internet world doesn't show up on our doorstep for the brunch. :)

3. Two words: Glam Glow
Holy cow, this face mask is awesome and really lives up to the hype. I tried it for the first time last night and wasn't amazed right after I washed it off. However, I woke up this morning and my face was so smooth, like a baby's butt. This is a good thing. :)

4. The fact that West Elm is coming to the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.
We purchased some of Millie's nursery furniture and rug here on sale. I love their Mid-Centrury Style line. Which reminds me, I have yet to feature Millie's nursery on this blog. I am getting to that, but am just waiting on one last thing that will complete her room. 

and finally,
5. The awesome response from my last blog post.
Thank you all so much for your encouragement and kind words regarding Millie and her colic. I am happy to report that she has improved leaps and bounds in the past week. She has been seeing  Dr. Jake 'the chiropractor'  who is AWESOME with her and we have really seen a difference just in the 2 weeks we have been going. As I mentioned before, I gave up dairy completely and her tummy and digestive issues are getting better by the day. She is only waking 1 time a night and I haven't been having any problems getting her back to sleep during that feeding. Sometimes, on a rare occasion, she is even sleeping 7-7.5 hours straight. Her eyes are so big, beautiful and blue.

As always, thanks for reading. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and enjoys this beautiful weather!
