Good to Read, Bad to Post

Oh goodness, again and again, keep leaving this behind...

yet still keeping up with the blogs I follow.

But, in honor of Mother's Day (among many celebrations in my family this week alone), here are some funny handcrafted cards from Storey Shop, as well as a couple of pinatas from Triple J Crafts - people are so creative!! I can already imagine what card goes with who...

From: Andrew (I love you!)

From: Robert, To: Mom

For the birthday girl (I might've turned 25 yesterday...)

To: Kelley Anne (it's perfect!)

To: Andrew

And a little more fun...
these pinatas crack me up (especially the last two!).

Celebrate the weekend...

It may not be a surprise anymore, but it was at the time.
And, exactly 6 months from today, we won't just be saying we're engaged...we'll be saying we're married!

So, despite making fun of him at the time, 
I couldn't be more thankful my Dad sniped these videos...



Elizabeth, Helen, & Jake:

...have a happy weekend!

What's all the bangle jangle?

Phew, it has been a while; and you'd think I'd have more time with no classes and just working!

Anyhow, just logged onto Etsy and found these under today's handpicked items.  They'd definitely spruce up any simple outfit! 

Do you have a favorite from


pretty sure I'm drawn to anything yellow
...mustard yellow, that is.

See ya later, Portland.

Funny to think you'll be home in under 8 months...

Time keeps rolling...
...on and on and on...

Keep Calm, Carry On

I always thought the "Keep Calm" signs were cute,  but never realized how many cute ones there were!

The Keep Calm Shop makes it hard to choose just one, when they'd liven up almost any room...

Laundry Room

Utility Room




Inspiration Room (hmm..I like that thought).

...which one would you choose?

I think I'm in a time warp...

Or in the Kansas City airport,
with little to do,
which seems like the perfect time for a post...especially with free Wi-Fi!

And is also making me think,
what will I do this time in Portland?

1. Take less of this (, that is)

2. More of this

3. And remember this

Post 100

Life's more delicate...

...than we give it credit for.

...because 100 is
just as important as 1...

What a cool fort for kids...

But I don't hate these handkerchiefs...
