Friend Makin’ Mondays:

15 Mar

When I first started blogging almost 2 years ago, I never thought I would make such strong friendships with people I would meet through blogging. That first summer I stumbled across a wonderful little get-together called Friend Makin’ Mondays. I joined in and after participating through the summer I got to know some wonderful people. Now I can’t imagine my life without those people in it. We also connected through FaceBook and I feel like I know them so well. Although we have not met in real life….yet.

Since I started hosting giveaways on Monday I have not been able to link up to FMM — but I really miss it. If you want to meet some really special, wonderful ladies, go over to Amber’s blog and join FMM. It is a fantastic way to meet new friends!!!

Today Amber is asking us to answer these questions:

I am…. Enjoying my Monday so far. The kids are home from school and I feel like I am getting back on schedule.

I think…. I am going to make homemade Mac & Cheese tonight. One of my kids’ faves.

I should… Go clean up my craft room.

I dream…. About having more time to get things done!!

I want…. The sun to melt all this snow away…

I know… I have wonderful friends. I am so blessed!

I don’t like…. Feeling like I have too much to do.

I smell… Popcorn. My kids love to make it after school for a snack.

I hear…. The sound of my kids playing with their friends. It makes me so happy.

I fear…. About so many things. Mostly that my children will be okay.

I search… Everywhere for those darn mismatched socks. Where do they go in the wash??

I miss…. My dad. It has almost been five years since he passed away. It seems like just yesterday that he was here…

I always… Miss my husband when he is gone. Right now he is in London and it’s so wild that it is bed time there while the sun is out here…

I crave…. Chips and salsa. Sounds so good right about now…

I remember… All the fun time we had on our trip last week. I am so glad we were able to get away together.

I need….. To get to bed earlier. Five hours of sleep is not enough…

I forget…. How fast the kids grow up. I was looking at pictures of Ella and now she is so tall!

I feel…. Really happy today. I got so much accomplished and I feel like this week is going to be great!

I can…. Make every moment count right now…

I can’t…. Waste my time worrying about things I can’t change.

I am happy…. To be with my kids and that they are healthy and happy.

I sing…. Nooooo, I’m not a singer…

I listen… I am loving Vampire Weekend

I shop….. I am hoping that Target gets some cute sandals in for Spring.

I eat…. I bought some more of those Jello Pudding Mousse cups. Yummy! I am thinking about how good it will taste when I eat it tonight…

I love….. FMM and checking in with friends! Go over to Amber’s to join in the fun!!!

Favorite Thing Wednesday: Neighborhood Moms PJ/Movie Party!

9 Sep

Whew, yesterday was a busy day! I did my usual things, but also got ready to help throw a neighborhood mom’s night out: movie/PJ party! We had the event in one of my neighbor’s gorgeous yard. We had a candy buffet and a popcorn bar.

I made these tissue paper flower that hung in the trees.Cupcakes!
My father-in-law set up the projector for us – what a nice guy!We had a PJ fashion show!
At the end of the night, we sat around her cozy fire pit and gave out prizes for the best PJs!
I found a wonderful site — Eat Drink Chic — that had free, downloadable lables. Aren’t they cute?It was a very fun night. A great way to celebrate the start of school!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Favorite Thing Wednesday: new vinyl!

2 Sep


Two posts in one day? Craaaazy!



I just love vinyl lettering. I love that it adds so much personality, yet is easy to remove if you get tired of it. I ordered a couple of new things for my home and just love them! If you are looking for cute vinyl, check out Janey macpress’s etsy shop! She is fast and very nice!

Some other vinyl that I love on etsy:

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Favorite Thing Wednesdays: dreamy window displays

5 May

What inspires you creatively? For me it can be a glossy magazine spread, my family, an HGTV show, or especially the beauty of nature. One company that really has inspirational, creative ideas is Anthropologie. I love their dreamy window displays.

And speaking of dreams, remember the outfit that I mentioned in the Friend Makin’ Monday: a girl can dream??

Well, I was in Anthropologie a few weeks ago dreaming, and I found THE SHOES in a clearance section. Regularly $170, mine for $29.00!I hope you have an inspired day!
XOXO
