FFF (Fabulous Friday Finds)

Dear beautiful girl in this photo,
Your skin is flawless, your cat eye is perfection, and your gently teased hair is divine.
I don't consider myself to be the jealous type but, I have to admit, I may be turning a little jelly.
(make up tutorial here)

Dear J.Crew,
My oh my have you nailed it with these gorgeous gold sparkle shoes. 
They scream glamor and class and all sorts of fanciness. But...

This makes me want to lick myself.
Is that weird? Wait, don't answer that.

Dear Santa,
Yes please!

It's Friday.
Shop. Eat cake. And find something FABULOUS!

Christmas Excitement w/ Wants

All I want for Christmas is my brand new house!
It is looking sooooo good and I can't wait to show it to you!
It's an understatement to say things are a bit busy around here.
I'm moving! Soon!
Let the packing begin.

 I want someone to make me these cookies

I want my nails to look like this.

And I want to look this cute while shopping for diapers at Costco.

Actually I want to look this cute sipping on a hot cocoa while shopping at a delightful outdoor market in a fabulous city with no kids in tow!
Right. Not my life.

want. want. want.

Enough Already

We just can't seem to stop stuffing our bellies around here. 
Have you ever had dessert from here?
Let's see...what else?
 3 weeks and 3 days until the completion of our new home. I CAN'T WAIT!
97% of Christmas shopping done. Thank you internet. Love you!
It's still in the 80's here. Sweater weather where are you?
Anyone want any leftover turkey? Gross!
One of my favorite things~kiddo letters to Santa.
Kelson asked for a dog, a 60 in. LED TV and a $400 Lego.
No. No. And No.
He made a new list.
And oh good golly this book is pretty darn funny.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend.

She Quoted


Lately I feel like I have been letting everything annoy me. 
My unfinished house.
The dirty carpet.
 The crack in my windshield.
(Just got the bill for Kels 3 stitches. $350~ANNOYING!) 
 Missing socks.
Prince Charming's shaved wiskers on the sink-EW!
10 yr old boys who tell their mom they have a nose hair. What?
Toast crumbs. 

So, today I have decided to sit back, chill out, and throw all my annoyances to the wind and enjoy my day today. That just might include a trip to the Nords shoe section.

Have a great day everyone.

Weekend At My House

The 3 Ding Dongs
Have you ever gotten to the point with your kids where in your head you're secretly telling them to shut up when they won't stop talking? Do you ever get sick of hearing Mom, Mom, Mom 85 thousands times a day? Are there moments when you wish you could turn them off with the flip of a switch? Are there days when you wish they would just go away for a while? Do you ever wonder if you'll really miss all the chaos like the old folks in the grocery store tell you you will?
Me too.
Me too.
My kids exhaust me.
They push all sorts of buttons.
Buttons I didn't know existed. 
And on occasion they have been known to make me cry.
most importantly 
they know I love them more than anything in the world. 
Even more than shoes.

I dedicate this to all of us who just have one of those days with our beautiful children.
Suggestion: You should totally download this song!

It's Monday. Make it the best one yet!

Weekend At My House

Well hello there.
Come on in. 
In a handful of weeks this door will become ours.
However, this door won't be just any door. 
It will be one that will welcome friends and family with open arms.
It will be one that will protect us from the outside evils.
It will be one that will safely hold love, laughter and kindness inside.
It will be one that when open will remind us to let go of things that don't matter.
Behind this door you will find messes, arguments and dirty toilets.
You will also find a family doing their best to live the best (imperfect) life they can.
So stop on by. We'd love to have you as a guest!

It's Monday.
Make it a great one!

P.S. When you come visit I'll make you THESE for breakfast.
In the meantime, you should definitely make them for yourself!
