How is the summer over?!
Please tell me it ain't so.
But it's my birthday weekend, and a long one at that, so I will relish it. 1.
So catchy for a birthday weekend.
2. Watercolor maps!
I want one for so many special locations.
3. Polka dot perfection!
I know, I know. I seriously have a colossal hard-on for polka dots.
But they simply never get old for me!
4. Glass jar art supply storage
LOVE how streamlined (and fun) this looks!
5. What Not to Say to Kids (and What to Say Instead)
I can literally hear myself saying some of these things on a daily basis.
But this article offers some really insightful alternative suggestions!
(P.S. Isn't my naughtly little biscuit just the cutest?
He's also equipped and ready to handle your biggest shits.)
And alas, a few more fun links to kick off your weekend...
Sorry I've been MIA.
Vacationing up North for the last 7 days.
(Pics to come!)
But I'll be back in full force next week!
Here's what's good for now... 1.
Road trippin' for a total of 12+ hours in the car with the huzz
ensures a LOT of Vampire Weekend will be heard.
Why not embrace them in all their glory?
2. blue & white stripes + navy blazer + tan leather belt
A perfect end-of-the-summer look for a night out on the town, no?
3. Mosquito repelling plants
Must remember to position a few of these in pots on the deck, nearthe front door (and anywhere else we might be spending outdoor time) for next year!
Citronella, Lemon Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Castor, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Cedar, Peppermint, Clove, Geranium, Verbena, Pennyroyal, Lavendar, Basil, Thyme, and Garlic!
4. 5 warm grays for the home
I'm feeling these way more than the drab beige realm.
5. Finding the calm
Hoping to achieve exactly just this up in the North Woods of WI.
And a few more fun links just because it's Friday...
The huzz is working nights the past 2 weeks,
leaving me a full-time working, single mother.
Oh yeah, and I'm 26 weeks preggs.
I don't know how the thousands of super single moms do it.
Kudos to you!
Links aren't working from my work computer, nor is formatting,
so excuse the odd bolding and poorly functioning links until I can fix tonight.
Not to mention, I'm falling asleep in my decaf coffee.
Nor have I been able to wash my hair in 3 days.
But at least tomorrow is Saturday!
And here, in true rough draft-style, is what's good this week...
This makes me want to ride my bike. Really fast.
(Or partake in some other summer-like activity).
2. Tomato Sandwiches!
'Tis the season.
From "Dinner: A Love Story"...so still need this book.
