Large Scale

The huge framed filled with poloroids is just about the coolest thing ever.

That's all.

Best days

I'm loving today. Finally cool out with not too much to do. My favorite kind of day.

To-do this week:
Snap some pics of my littles in their adorable Tea Collection togs.
Decide what to make for contribution to Thanksgiving.
We're doing Elf on the Shelf this year so I need to pick one up.
Get out my holiday decorations.
Make holiday gift lists organized.

What are you guys up to this week? Are you madly making lists like me so you don't go crazy during the holidays?

Love it :: Brown

Today I'm dreaming of dark leather handbags and herringbone floors.

Maybe thinking of such things will keep my mind off of the fact that I was a crabby old harpy this morning. I hate mornings like that. Getting the kids ready, lunches made and out the door without forgetting something not to mention the arguing that ensues immediately upon arrival in the car it's enough to make a mom nuts. I hate losing my cool, it never makes the situation any better but sometimes it happens. So I will sit and continue to drink my coffee while imagining that my floors are now dark and herringbone and one of these bags is residing my my closet.

Love it :: Gold Minx

I've long been intrigued by Minx, a nail wrap that needs to be applied by a professional. Per usual with my crushes I've got it totally stuck in my head that my fingertips are begging me to get the gold ones. 

Can you see why? They're beyond.

Easy Fall Food

Normally I breeze by the mixes in the stores, everything is better if it's homemade right? Well I've changed my tune because here are two of my new fall favorites in the food department. 

I love the yummy smell of cider simmering on the stove but good ole' Trader Joe's made our lives much easier with their Spiced Apple Cider.  Now we can have it whenever we want, one cup at a time. 

Their Pumpkin Pancake and  Waffle Mix is almost like a pumpkin pie pancake. Totally delish! So go and try and be excited that it's so easy. 

Oh and one more thing here's another muffin mix that's become a favorite at our house. Big was going on and on about the most delicious apple muffins he had at his friend's house so when I asked my friend to send me her recipe she sent me a picture of this box. Ha, I'm eating crow because apparently mixes are sometimes where it's at.


I feel like the cool fall days make traditional style seem perfect don't you?

Want it :: Necklace

Just as I was busy complaining about how lame Hart of Dixie is they go and have one of the characters wear a necklace like this.

Crap. Now I'm still going to have to watch because I love the clothes. I know this image has crappy resolution but Lemon (yes, I know Lemon.Yikes.) is wearing a necklace with pearls and gold spikes. Lo-ove, totally and completely. I must know where she found it. Ideas?

PS - Please don't judge. I can't help myself if there's good clothes.

[pretty sure this is it. woot!]

Snack Freak

I try to be green, I do my best when packing the kids lunches. I always use BPA free (the freak in me) reusable containers but today I fell off the wagon. This year at Target they had individual packages of Pirate's Booty to give out as treats and when I was there yesterday I picked up two boxes because they were on sale. Little has snack duty once a month and they prefer individually divided snacks so that's what I got them for but this morning in a panic I packed a bag in Little's lunch. I loved it, it was so easy!  Aaahhh!! I can not fall under those individually wrapped snacks spell.

Please don't think that I sit at home and make my kids homemade granola bars and stuff because they're individually wrapped, believe me I don't. I just try when possible to keep baggies to a minimum. Freak you say? Yes I know very, very true. But it's things like this that make me crazy. Two minutes in the morning is a lot.

This is how I'm feeling today. I like feeling like this.

On days like this I pretend it looks like this right outside my door.

Since it doesn't I'll probably wear something like this, because it's still warm here folks.

Then maybe I'll make some tea and play make believe that it's chilly.

Maybe tonight it will get chilly? Crossing fingers.
