That's An App

Have you been singing this song too?

Apparently I have nothing better to do than buy photo apps and waste endless amounts of time playing around with them. What's another .99 cents right?

Combine THIS and THIS and you'll be sure to never get anything done. Guaranteed!

Enjoy your weekend!
P.S. OMGOSH! Have you seen THIS?

Thoughts At 3:24PM

Berks I'll pay you $10 bucks to take a nap. Okay, fine. $20.
I really want a box of these. Seriously, right now.
Mr. Harry Guy in cycling class you were grumpy. Dude, eat some Cherios before class next week.
Oh my hair these day. I'm so sorry I have neglected you. For like...ever.
I wonder if I have a library fee. Of course I do. I always have a library fee. Stupid DVDs. 
Skywire 2013? So dumb. However, I'm glad you didn't die. That would cause me nightmares.
Dinner. Go away. 
Hey neighbor, your new pool rocks. Can we be friends? 
Summer camp can you please last an hour longer today? I'm really, really tired.
Ok girl (aka me), time to redo the three week old neon yellow pedi. Nasty!
Darn you lululemon dress. I really want you.
She told me to check out her Tweet. Huh? 

And that's how random my brain is at 3:24PM. You should see what it does at midnight!

P.S. THIS is so me.

 Yay. Finally a matress that fits the bed. 

 Found this little gem the other day.

 These make me smile. 

Cow rug found a new home in the entry.

My HAPPY masterpiece. Ok sorta ghetto but I still enjoy it.

 Mr. Mustache pillow. Isn't he cute?

Dining not complete but coming along. 

A clean kitchen. For 5 seconds anyway.

What's happening around your house?

Self Portrait

My children have been taking art classes this summer and they have been bringing home all sorts of masterpieces that I absolutely adore. Children's artwork truly brings happiness to my soul!  Anyway, like any good mother after each class I carefully exam their work and give them all sorts of positive feedback and praise for a job well done. 
Well, yesterday was different story.
When class was over Kels climbed into the car and showed me this (pic above).
I looked at his work, paused for a moment not knowing how to comment, and then laughed. I laughed so hard I started to cry. What decent mother in her right mind laughs at her child's masterpiece? It was those teeth I tell ya. Okay and maybe the misshapen head.
You know, sometimes our kids don't always produce out-of-this-world amazing stuff. And that's ok.
It's all part of discovering what their real talents are. 
 We now know that Kelson will not be making millions creating self portraits.

Enjoy your day!
Apologies for the limited posting. It's summer around here....we're playing!
And this song needs to be part of your summer playlist!
Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke

 P.S. For the record, once I started laughing Kels joined right in.

Dear Mr. Summer Vacation,

I might be on to you. Are you punishing me because I occasionally use "educational television" as my babysitter? Don't be a hater just because my definition of occasionally and your definition of occasionally differ. Oh, and BTW, remember that melt down Lucy had in Ikea the other day? I totally blame you! 108 outside, "starving to death", and a Mom not in the mood for nasty crap meatballs and lingonberry juice...your fault!

Hope you're enjoying your popsicles poolside!

Finding Your Happy

 sweatshirt here

1. send kids to neighbor's house
2. eat whole carton of mint chip ice cream
3. turn music loud and do the moonwalk
4. jump on a bed
5. sing a Madonna song into hairbrush
6. watch full episode of Downton Abbey-uninteruppted
(I'm obsessed with this show and I don't watch TV.)
7. take a nap
8. doodle life long dreams in crayon
9. order pizza for dinner and have it delivered
10. do it all over again tomorrow with a loved one (or two or three)

To me, a part of happiness is finding a healthy balance between spending time with the ones you adore and finding time for you. It's about making memories. It's about finding joy in silly things. It's about taking care of yourself.  It's about learning how to have fun in creative ways without spending money. It's about smiling often. It's about choice. 
May we all find our HAPPY today whatever that may be.
