A few Random Thoughts...

1. I'm done nursing. Well, not technically, but in my heart I am SO OVER IT! My precious baby boy still nurses as often and as much as he did when he was 4 months old. There has been no slowing down for him. I try, oh do I try to get him to eat other food. All he wants is me. Bless his heart. I've always said that I would nurse him as long as he wanted as long as he wasn't still nursing when he went to Kindergarten. I'm not really thinking that anymore. At this point in time, I'm committing to his birthday. Beyond that will only happen by the grace of God.

2. My daughter prefers Granny Smith Apples to any other apple.

3. I'm ready to re-paint my house. All of it. Every. Last. Room. I just want to freshen things up. So maybe I don't have to re-paint everything to freshen things up, but a few things here and there would be great. I've toyed with painting my kitchen cabinets for a while now. I go back and forth between a creamy white to match all of the moldings or a bold black that would contrast everything. I've even thought about painting the top and bottom cabinets differently. I have a lot of ideas swimming in my head. I just need to DO IT one of these days.

4. There is some sort of cluttered pile in every room of my house. I hate it. It keeps me awake at night. But no matter what I do, it always finds a way back into my life. It makes me cringe.

5. Dan In Real Life is an awesome movie.

I told you these were random thoughts.

I finally got my hair done yesterday.  

Ahhh....

I feel good.

I twittered the whole process yesterday with pictures and everything.  I realize that there are a few people in this cyber-world who are still living their lives blissfully unaware of the deliciousness that is twitter and facebook.  

Soooo...for you I am re-posting the pictures of the hair-beautification process.

Roots are gone!

Foils are in!

The finished result - the straight edition.

Mama + an afternoon away getting hair done = Much more peaceful household

The (really) curly edition.

So there you have it.  The price tag can sometimes be a bit to swallow depending on circumstances, but I tell you what!  It is worth EVERY penny when I come home feeling so refreshed and rejuvenated!  If a few hours alone every couple months and $100 is all it takes then I think we're doing pretty good!


What do you do to revive your soul???

My Superbowl... of SHOPPING!!!

So as you know...last night was the Superbowl! My husband enjoyed it. I was bored by minute 2 of the first quarter, so I looked to Facebook to entertain me, but instead it yelled at me and blocked me from using friend chat. It said I was being abusive of the feature and if I continued to try to use it while being blocked, my account would be suspended and deleted. Nice. Thank you Facebook. I'm no longer such a big fan of yours!

What's a girl to do without Facebook to entertain her? Go shopping? Yes! That's exactly what I did! I thought I would bring you along as I browsed some of my favorite websites. Here we go...

Up first, my friend Ann...

I totally and completely luuuuuve this outfit!


And this one... Oh my! I just plum don't know where to begin. The shirt... The ah-mazing jeans... The shoes and bag! Be still my beating heart!

On to my FAY-VOR-RITE place to shop ever! Banana Republic...


I love these, minus the pleats. Seriously. Pleats no friend of this baby tummy. But they are still so cute and with the extra 30% off all sale items...they're totally cheap!

So moving on to accessories from Sam Moon...


How adorable is this luggage set. Come on, now! Fly me to the moon, Baby!


I think I like these, but I'm not sure just yet... I'd have to see them in an ensemble.

There, these are much better!


When I was 7 my favorite color was canary yellow...After seeing this handbag, I'm thinking this summer may be the summer of canary yellow! I big puffy heart this bag! It just makes me smile!

Ok, enough accessories... Let's go back to more clothes and let's go to my favorite dream shop, Boden. Someday I might be able to afford something, but for now I will just thoroughly enjoy browsing!

These crisp little cookies would remind me of Sandy Gabrielli!




Well hello little sweet pea! You would look great on my hiney!

I can honestly say that I'd like one of each of these and in every color. Size 8 please. Thank you.

I so totally love this dress! Why, oh why does it have to be $138? I've only got two dolla and a piece of pocket lint!

Some would say they can't live without air...

A couple of random things before we get to my post...

1.  My son refuses to crawl. 
2. He refuses to sleep through the night.
3. I'm glad football season is over.

Ok, now that I've got that off my chest we can get on to the good stuff...

I use certain things on a daily basis that I don't think I could ever live without.  Well, I probably could, but I don't ever want to try!  I got to thinking, though, that no one should have to live without these things either.  But, then I thought, what if you don't know what you're missing....

Soooo... I am going to share a few of the things I don't want to live another day without.  Let's start with the first and most important, mm kay?

Here we go... Are you ready for it???...


I will not, I repeat, I WILL NOT live my life without this lip balm.  I bought myself some as an indulgence while still preggers with the boy.  I fell in love at first swipe and will never go without it for as long as live.  

It may be more dinero than your average Lip Smackers, but oh my heavens!!! It is worth ev-er-y penny!  I promise.  

I buy mine in bulk.  No joke.  I have one in every jacket pocket. One on my dresser, on the table next to the door, in the bathroom, in my desk door, in the drawer of my kitchen island, purse, car etc., etc.  You get the picture.  I don't like to be without it.  

I've given it away in countless gifts.  It doesn't matter what the occasion.  This lip balm is perfect for any gift!!!  

All this talk of lip balm has made my lips chapped.  

I'm going to go slather them in goodness.  

And I'm going to order another case.  

Would you like a stick?
