linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett!  i’m thepleatedpoppy on instagram if you want to follow along!


i’m still playing with the whole idea of wearing booties.  i love instagram and Facebook for all the great feedback i get!  basically, i think these boots are a little clunky for my frame, but i already own them, so they’re staying.  next option: wearing looser jeans to balance out the proportions.


we went to a spring party at a friend’s property out in the hills.  it was so incredibly beautiful!  they happened to have a vineyard on the property that we wandered around in for awhile with the kids.  i’m pretty sure i could move there.


a little before & after ;)


mixing patterns is kinda my thing. #whatiwearathome


my sister-in-law and her girls came for a visit this week.  it was so fun!  they were such a blessing to us.  they even let silas in on the action when they were doing all the girly things.  he was just happy to be included!


this is just a peek into why this week was rough at home.  somedays i am losing my mind.

plans for the weekend: finish some painting projects, swap the kids’ bedrooms (!!!), hang out with my parents, go to an arbor day festival where gracie’s art will be on display, and have a mellow easter at home (after church) with my family.

    I love the little angle your boy is in for homework – so creative!

    Ha! The pic of Silas made me giggle. I know a handful of boys in my first grade class who would opt to work like that if/when given the choice. Silly kids!

    I love the pic of Silas doing homework. How funny! Where did you get that grey top in the first pic? I’ve been looking all over for one that style/color.
