jesse james is a meat head.
live elimination on thursday this week.

{.....and the summer sleep overs continue}

tay and madison.

a little carried away with the shaving cream.

ninja madison.

becca joined madison and taylor's "gang" today.

back to good.......for madison at least. still earning my trust.

speaking of gangs.....zac and 3 of his friends from the football team drove in zac's car to 7 on 7 tonight. they had their rap music all cranked up and all four of them were dancing with the windows rolled down when they drove up to the football field. some random dad from mckay got out of his car and told them to "quit throwing gang signs" at him. pretty funny. so now i guess we have 2 members of the a-town gang living in our house. holy smokes. come on people.

{so, so inspired and in love}

i was in need of a little inspiration. and there it was. right in front of my nose. from this inspirational gal. thanks, heidi. it's ordered and on it's way.

and then there is this site. seriously cool. i am on my way to buy a control journal this week. to basically....get it under control. we are pretty ahead of the game when it comes to finances, but you can always get a little organized.
i need to get a little "simpler" {is that how you spell that?} as well.

green gate.

seriously. thanks for reminding me friend. when i was a buyer at sadie's i wanted to carry this line, but it was european....hard to order....hard to convert pricing....just kind of awkward. i gave the catalog to emma downtown about 3 years ago and forgot the name of the company until missy reminded me yesterday. pure heaven.

another one i am adoring.

today i am grateful for:

  • ate so, so healthy today.
  • walking tonight with my best friend.
  • i have the {3 amigas} spending the night at the house tonight.
  • starbucks coffee with maxine at 3 p.m.
  • 2 hours of blog surfing

{best friends}

i love these girlies the most. talk about adorkable!!
definition of adorkable: adorable mixed with a little dorky.......

{don't happy}

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.' Matthew 6:34.

i have so many things i want to share, but they will have to wait until later.

in the mean time, the bible verse above is for my bff.....and anyone else that needed to hear it today.

{non-mechanical husband on the loose}

lights in kitchen....still all caddy-wompas and not pointing in the right direction yet, but they are up gosh darn it.
chandelier for the dining room and in our entry way. ours has cream shades on it though. i will probably change the dining room shades out to red for the holidays.

john and my brother-in-law john balancing on our ledge to hang the light........scary. they would have a beer, hang a light, another beer, another light. we had 8 lights to hang. you do the math. they broke light number 8. thank goodness i am going to portland to pick sunny up tomorrow......i will have to make a pit stop at ikea.

{i want her, really}

meet allie. from this amazing studio.

i seriously want this job....i want to fold fabric.....make coffee....wear vintage sundresses over jean capris and flip flops. i want to grocery shop, bake cookies, pick blueberries, and take the kids to the pool.....your kids and my kids.

any openings?

{looking forward....} coffee at starbucks with a dear friend.

working from home today in an air conditioned house with my puppy laying on my bed.

{prettier, smarter, and thinner}

it's a middle school lesson. one i tell my 12 year old all the time.
don't write mean things about people because it will always come back to bite you.
someone, somewhere, will see it and people you wouldn't want to see it will read it. and share it with people you would never imagine.
i always tell her to keep that in mind when writing about other people.
someday when she applies for a job, or goes to college, or even just in school.....
it's a bitch.

{freaking out}

here i am.
freaking out at ikea this weekend in the lighting aisle.
