Does it seem like everywhere you go right now, every woman you see is pregnant?  It seems like there must be something in the water over in my neck of the woods because I am doing custom nursery projects out the ying yang! (Note to self: Do NOT drink the water).  First, congratulations!  Second, if you need a changing table, I can help…  Third, if you need a snuggler for the baby, I can help there too.  Fourth, I’m still not drinking the water!

The Unnamed Child babysat and dog sat all summer. She quickly realized that babysitting is hard work, and she feels that she should be making waaay more money per hour. She was reflecting on it and thinks dog sitting is much easier, and that she is never having children … only dogs and pigmy goats.

Oh, and she is also trying to talk me into a teacup pig. Currently, we have the three dogs and the cat, which I believe technically makes our home a zoo. It is constant chaos with someone always barking, wrestling, or throwing up. She is determined though, and she even made me a powerpoint presentation on all of the reasons why she should have a teacup pig:  they can swim, be potty trained, and they don’t shed or bark.  Did you also know that they can live up to 12-15 years? Do you know how many years she will have left living in my house?  Two. So guess who would be taking care of a pig alone once she goes off to school?

Topher is even on board with this idea! So you can guess who the bad guy is! [Check it out...]

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend! Saturday was my little niece’s 1st birthday party! I can’t believe it’s already been a year.  She had a lemonade stand party, and her mom did an awesome job!  I got totally sidetracked when I got there and forgot to take pictures, so hopefully my […]


Pinterest Party Friday #70

Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like you worked your tail off but got nothing accomplished? That was me this week. The unnamed child started school yesterday (she was not thrilled). Monday through Wednesday, we were running around getting her haircut, school clothes, school supplies, etc. Then yesterday […]

Giraffes, and Kangaroos, and Zebras … Oh My!

My mom and the unnamed child have always had a very close relationship. Sleepovers at mimi’s meant homemade cookies, putting on their swimsuits and getting in the jacuzzi tub while sipping cocktails (orange juice) in champagne glasses, and staying up late watching tv together. Even as a teenager, it hasn’t been uncommon for her to […]


Wine Cork Letters

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine working on projects, thinking I would have them all completed by Sunday night … but it seemed like one disaster after another struck. Here it is Tuesday, and none of them are finished yet. On Movie Night, we ended-up watching Divergent (which […]


Pinterest Party Friday #69

Happy Friday everyone!!  My gosh where did this week go? We got a bit more back to school clothes shopping accomplished, but haven’t bought one thing as far as school supplies go! Although in high school they don’t need as much as the little kids do, so you save money there. The clothes and college […]

Butterfly Moss Wreath

I’m doing things this week that I don’t like doing:  shopping for school supplies and back to school clothes. The unnamed child starts back next Friday, and like it or not, we better get ready. Today we knocked some of the clothing off the list, and Thursday we’re working on the school supplies. As we […]


Super Easy Pepsi Pot Roast

My mom is a lot of things. She is the most compassionate person you have ever met. She will go out of her way to do something nice for someone that she just met 5 minutes ago. She’s the sweet lady that kids come up to at her office because she has candy for them […]


Our Mini Getaway and Plaster Painted Kitchen Chairs

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend! We ended up going to Kansas City last Thursday and Friday. Thursday, we went back-to-school shopping for the kiddo. It was absolutely the most perfect day for it. We went shopping on the Plaza and the weather was gorgeous. We ate at Bucca Di […]

The Most Important Piece In Any Room

For months now, my friend has been wanting me to help decorate her 5-year-old daughter’s bedroom. I told her that we would have to start with the most important piece — the piece that makes or breaks an entire room:  the rug. It can take a simple room from bland to BAM!! Check out the […]
