Nail Polish Swap

I'm a SUCKER for nailpolish.
I mean, what woman do you know that isn't right??
So when I saw Lala & Carly's nail polish swap, I jumped at the chance to sign up!

I got paired with the beautiful, fabulous Esther - if you haven't yet, please go check out her blog; she is such a sweetheart!!!

I LOVE the polishes that she picked out for me, and cannot WAIT to try them out soon!

Fun Days

Late yesterday afternoon, as I was buckling Sophia into her carseat after a playdate with my favorite little guy & aunt dd, Sos looked up at me and said "Mama, I had a fun day today". And we did. We had a great weekend.

From a birthday party for two precious little girls:

To some mama time for me and one of my besties:

To blowin bubbles and learning how to play t-ball with DD

And even Stinky Faces at the food store

I couldn't ask for anything funner!

Friday Letters


Dear Kelle Hampton - THIS video, has my heart all sorts of happy today.

Dear Adam Levine - I love you, like triple heart, x's and o's, love, love, love you. And that Blake Shelton impersonation?? Priceless. Cute and funny? What more could a girl ask for??
And while we're at it, maybe you can tell Christina to cover up her ladies?? No one needs to see all that, especially my two year old!

Dear Hubby - Thanks for taking such good care of us. For taking such good care of our girl, and our home. People always ask me how can I do this commute, the hours are rough, I'm gone from the time our girl gets up, until she is ready for bed but my answer is always because of you. You always have my back, OUR back and I feel like the luckiest girl ever. All that talk about Adam? Hogwash. You're the only guy for me. You have my heart forever and ever and ever.

Dear Toaster Struedels - Thank you for filling my belly every morning this week. I adore you. My behind on the other hand.....

Dear Blake Lively - You are perfection, and in fact my new girl crush.

Dear Weekend - I'm SO glad you are here. Tomorrow we are celebrating the birthday's of one of my oldest and dearest friends two little chicklets, I can't wait to get in some girl time with my ladies and maybe, JUST maybe some fall decorating.

Happy Friday!!!!!

Its Friday, 3:00 - my favorite time of the week. I'm on the train, headed home, headphones on and trying to unwind from what proved to be another crazy week. Thank God its over and I have a few days to recoup!

Tomorrow we're taking Little Miss to Sesame Place to see Yo Gabba Gabba, who mine as well be The Beatles to her. She is SUPER excited. Everytime I ask her "What are we gonna do this weekend??" She screams "Go see Gabba GABBA". I can't wait to see her face tomorrow!

Other than that we don't have much planned besides the norm: cleaning, laundry and grocery shopping! Not so fun, but after this week - anything sounds good right now!

I'm hoping The H and I can squeeze in a few hours on the couch watching our new favorite show "Breaking Bad". Best Buy had the full seasons on sale a few weeks ago for $12.99. The H had some gift certificates so we decided to scoop up all 4 seasons, and have been HOOKED ever since! If you haven't seen it, you have no idea what your missing. Its SO good!

So that's what we're up to this weekend. Anyone have any big plans? Do share!!

Have a good weekend!!!!!!

For the last week I've struggled with what to write, how much should I let go, what's ok to put out there, and what's not.  Some things have been heavy on my heart, but they don't just affect me so, putting them out there seems, well unfair to the rest of my fam.  The H and I are not splitting up, just to be clear, and our little miss is perfectly fine (Thank the Lord!!)

Things are changing, but you know sometimes change is good, sometimes its much needed and overdue - in order for us to grow.
But change is hard! Especially for me.
I like things the way I like them.
I like normalcy. I like my simple little life, drama free. But this isn't about me, and its not my journey. So for now, I'm rolling with the changes.

Learning how to adapt and trying to see the positive.
