The Missing Link – Week 13

Have you ever felt like something was missing from your life? Well, it could just be one of the links below. Hence my post title! You may ask yourself "Is she serious?" Well the answer is "No, I'm definitely NOT serious." I'm just feeling silly. Seriously though, I thought I'd share some of my favorite links with you in an effort to spread the love. What's better is that I thought I'd make this post a weekly thang! No that isn't a typo. I told you I was feeling silly. So the links below may not complete your life, but I'm hoping they, in some way, add to it. I separated them into categories for easy navigation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

1. I love creative shots!  If you do too, you have to check out ‘Creative Dad takes Crazy Photos of Daughters’.
2. Do you photograph weddings?  If so, this is such a great idea for a wedding photo!
3. Do it yourself tiny polaroid magnets!  How cool is that?
4. Did any of you happen to see this American Baby picture over at The Bonnie 5?  I love it!

1. The picture really doesn’t do this dress justice! I actually have it and it is just super cute and comfy! I must have gotten about 5 compliments on it!
2. Love these shoes at Marciano’s!

1. I saw these in person while the hubby and I were in Rockport, MA and they are just so sweet! 
2. I fell in love with this designer (specifically this beret) when I saw it in a little shop in Rockport, MA.  Unfortunately they didn’t have Livvy’s size so I will have to order HERE.
3. How great are these little masks for kids?  They’d make a great photo prop too!
4. I am in love with this article of clothing by Persnickety for Livvy! 
5. What a great idea to store sandwiches!  Lunch skins at The Pottery Barn Kids!
6. This tent tutorial is awesome!  And how pretty are they?
7. I just love this belted shirt waist dress by Guess!

1. Into crafts and DIY? If so, this website is incredible!
2. I love the idea of these his & her rings! So cute!
3. Also, incase you missed it.  For a free Vacation Packing List printable, click HERE and New Baby List printable, click HERE.  For some free collages, click HERE and HERE.  Enjoy!

I thought I’d leave you with this cutie…

We love this surprised face on Livvy so much!  It makes us crack up.  Normally when you ask her to make this face, she will not do it, but I was lucky this time!  Mommy snapped that picture at just the right time too!  I also wanted to link it up to the following photo challenges:

the long road Happily Mother After

I also had to share these pictures of my hubby!  I was so happy with how they turned out.  They were a little over exposed for my liking but I was able to darken them up a tad.  Thank heavens the highlights weren’t blown out.  Now, I don’t know about you ladies, but I love me a scruffy man!  Yeah baby!
