Insta-Friday

It's Thursday night as I write this and it's been a busy week.... I am pooped!  So guess what.... lots of pictures today from my instagram life this week (you can find me at cassie8978)!

My matching Ravens fans.  And no, I am not a mother who matches my children.  These two BEGGED me to wear their jerseys together.  Sawyer got his last year from my parents, and we spotted Emmy's at Goodwill and they begged me to buy it so they could wear them together.  True story.

Love waking up to this sweet face...

Finally hung my poster prints from our beach trip.  Now to paint the trim and walls..... all in time.

On a nice cool morning with the windows open, Emmy sat and soaked in the fresh air.

Sunday evening the kids and our neighbor's dughter raced around the driveway, basking in the end of summer.

I made this sweet potato, kale, and sausage (I used chicken sausage) hash.  It was delicious!

I got my first hair cut since December!

I also bought some new nail polish, a pretty blue gray from OPI called something with heron in it.... I can't remember!  Emmy and I had a nail painting session.

Emmy decided she wanted a haircut, too.  She chose chin length.  I got out my scissors and went to town!  I love her hair this length so was happy to oblige.

That evening she also lost her first tooth while eating a popsicle.  She was so giddy and couldn't wait to go to school to show her friends her missing tooth and haircut!

I picked up this amazing $30 antique library table.  And decided I needed to keep it as a dining table on the porch!   I love it just as it is.  Sawyer loves that it has a drawer.

I ordered some awesome fabric from this etsy shop.  An amazing friend gave me a gift card and I decided to put it to creative use.  I plan to make some pillows!

Another friend, one of my very best childhood friends, sent a fabulous birthday gift as well.  And check out the card- so me!  Heck, that could easily be me.

I got new running shoes and broke them in yesterday morning.  I took a hilly run with  friend and I am happy to report that I didn't want to die and actually felt good after.  I owe it all to these neon shoes.

I went to the dentist.  ICK.  All went well, but I hate going.  I dressed i my favorite thrifted top, Toms fun ballet flats, and even blow dried my hair.... I was hoping that feeling good about how I looked would make the visit less painful.  But if you look closely you can see the fear in my eyes.

I am thinking of painting this beast for Emmy's room.  Perhaps glossy yellow, hot pink, maybe orange, maybe turquoise.... and maybe I won't even keep it for her, but it's so roomy and funky!

I went to the farmer's market and treated myself to 50 cent hydrangeas.

And for $1 a feather, I also got these peacock feathers at the market!  LOVE!

There you have it!  My week in instagram!  Enjoy your wonderful holiday weekend!  See you in September!

The only reason I am the first comment is because I have been awake since 3 am......one day you'll be in menopause and you'll remember I told you this (I'll be dead by then of course).....anyway (obviously lack of sleep creates rambling thoughts)....anyway...loved seeing your week...cute outfit, nice table, cute kids and glad the dentist went OK....I'm a phobic too.....I hear you....OK....making coffee now.

Happy weekend! Love those cute football fans ~ my brother would have been mortified to be twins in any form at that age! :)

Maury @ Life on Mars said...

You're too cute! Love the haircut (both of them). I'm kinda jealous that Emmy wakes up with hair looking like that. And the table is KILLER!

Michelle Scheibe said...

I want to squish Emmy's cheeks!!!

Rest up! Or paint trim. I know you.

Love the 'week in review'! I have a similar aversion to dentists. My children have been known to use it against me from time to time. ;-)

Such a cute post! 5 + 5 = totally adorable :) Big hugs to you all!
Enjoy the holiday weekend, Cassie!

Yay looks like a terrific stressless week! I have to tell you that the other day Sammy and I were talking and I said "if anything ever happens to me(morbid but lots of funerals lately) I want you to ship this awesome unfinished piece of furniture to Cassie..." and he interupted with "from Primitive and Proper..." then paused realizing how riduculous it was that he knew that's who I meant.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

No wonder you are worn out! What a busy fun week!

Dear Emmeline said...

Neon shoes always make you run faster! They're made of magic. ;)

Allison said...

Your haircut and Emmy's looks so pretty! You had another busy week....fun and productive! I think I need those shoes. The neon is happy and I need something more comfy on my feet theses days than my flip flops. I've been running around a lot!!

Renee said...

Love the haircuts! And, I love, love that top you wore to the dentist! If you ever tire of it....
These snippets into your daily life are so much fun. I think mine would just be pictures of going back and forth to soccer practice (Kellen is on two teams this fall!)

Good Time Charlie said...

So cute, the matching jerseys! Haircut looks awesome, you looked gorgeous going to the dentist. It has been way too long since I have gone myself, ducking the phone calls from the dentist even!!! My kids go to a different dentist, so I don't get guilted when I take them. You gave me the courage to call them this week. PS LOVE those running shoes!

Courtney Dickinson said...

My first comment on your blog, Cassie, but I just HAD to tell you I love those little Ravens fans! I'm a DMV-area girl, as well and love seeing all the great things you put together for the Barn. One weekend, I will, I'll make it to the Barns to check out the sale and say Hello from Reston, VA! Keep up the awesome posts :-)
