Brights

My friend Tobe from Because It's Awesome is visiting today!  She was so sweet to write me and offer up her writing services so I could get a little bloggy/mommy break.  What she didn't know is the amazing timing she had!  I read her email Friday afternoon right after the Dr. told me that Fletcher's RSV (which is basically a super bad cold and can be real dangerous for infants, especially prior preemies) was looking pretty bad and he needed to go straight to the hospital for monitoring and support.  I'm happy to report that after 2 nights there we were released and Fletcher is home doing much better than he was last week!

So again Tobe, thank you so much for stopping by LLL today.  I hope you all enjoy her post on brights :)  I know I do!

hello, look linger lovers! tobe from because it's awesome here to give one of our favorite mamas in the blogsphere a teeny tiny break. after reading chassity's latest post about the exhaustion of motherhood (albeit a small sacrifice for the joy of having a brand new babe to love on and an adorable tot like lilly), i thought to myself, what would any woman need on a monday morning to get her week started right? my conclusion? brights! nothing like sporting color in big doses to keep your spirits up! i managed to round up a few pieces that are sure to get the job done:


what do you think? i say a little bit of color is bound to add a whole lot of sunshine to anyone's day!

This is an AWESOME spread. Love every single thing.... I think the J Brand skinnies or the yellow sweater are my faves... good for a pale girl!
Hope your baby boy is feeling back to normal ASAP!

I'm doing it tommorrow! I'm adding color, I need something to brighten up my week!!

Erika [small shop] said...

So basically I don't know where to start. I may need that one piece, no joke -- another sacrifice of motherhood (especially c-sections!).

Chassity I'm so sorry to hear about your poor babe! But glad that things are getting better. It is so tough when they're sick, when they can't communicate with you. You feel so helpless. But it gets easier I promise!
