Fill in the Blank Friday

1.   My current obsession is      anything sweet.  Does that count?  I am a sugar fiend lately  .

2.    My sweet husband buying me the thoughtful gift of a pastry brush      makes me happy.

3.  My greatest strength is   loving my kids and husband unconditionally   .

4.    Oh just about everything but currently saying no to food that I know is bad for me   is my greatest weakness.

5.  My life is    extremely blessed!  I have a sweet little family and a job- which I hate but it helps pay the bills and for that I am grateful .

6.  In high school I was      told by a red faced boy that he was going to marry me one day.  He was right    .

7.  When I'm super tired    I get onery!  I feel for my poor husband  .

Itsy Bitsy Spiders

Creepy eh?  October is just a few days away.  Holy cow has time flown this year!  I need to get on the Halloween and fall decorations or I will miss out this year.    

So I had to share this Halloween idea!!  They are magnetic spiders.  It is easy and inexpensive.  Right up my alley!  And spooky to boot.  It is from a guest post that Delia Creates did on Miss Lovie.  Check it out here.

Sunday Songs on Monday!

Sorry I am late with this but man oh man has it been a fun and long weekend.  For some reason I didn't pick up my camera once.  WTF?!  It was my older brother's wedding Friday and Saturday.  Then yesterday we went up to a friends cabin and hung out.  We also went back up today for breakfast.  IT was delightful.  Any ways.... this song was played many a times this weekend.  Especially on the drive up and down the canyon.

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.   The best thing I did all week was     all my laundry.  Yeah sounds sorta lame but I love having it all done  .

2.    Bright pink lips      make me super happy.

3.  Pets are   non-existent in my life currently   .

4.    My family    is the best thing about my life.

5.  With the cooler weather I am looking forward to    being able to wear my hair down and not die of heat stroke .

6.  Something that's on my "wish list" right now is     a great tough, rock and roll pair of flat boots to fit my massive calves   .

7.  This weekend I am going to    be partying it up at my brothers wedding and hanging out up in the mountains  .

Who is that guy?

Anyone else out there love a man with long hair and a bushy beard?  Cause I do!  Oh boy do I ever!  Obvisouly the Lola baby does too!  This is the official nod to the hubsman turning from this: 

and this:

to this:

and this:

Can you believe it?!  He doesn't even look like the same man.  Oh bushy beard and long hair how I miss thee.  But damn he is fine!  He is a crazy sexy man.  Are you looking people?!  In conclusion I think that I can love the baby faced, clean shaven and short haired hunk o'man of mine.  So baby if you are reading this just remember that you will always be my metal hippy even if you look like a missionary.  hee hee!

Sunday Songs

I always seem to forget my deep love for Phoenix.  That is until I happen to hear any one of their songs and then my love affair is re-ignited!

Fill in the Blanks!

1.   You should always take time to     be silly and embarrass yourself.  Life is too short to worry about what other people think!

2.    Shoes      make(s) the world a happier place to be.

3.  I can hardly wait for   fall to officially be here.    

4.    Any of my days off    is my favorite day of the week.

5.  Something totally dumb and ridiculous that I love is    Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movies.  Oh yeah I just admitted that on the internet! .

6.  If I could, I would   be a stay at home momma and bake and clean all day long    .

7.  I rather like    that crazy hot guy in that photo up there   .

I have had Christmas on the brain the last little while.  And I think that I want the ring below for Christmas.  Yeah I am making my list and checking it twice and then giving it to the mister!  Isn't it beautiful?  I found that bad boy right here.  

Speaking of Christmas- Jandee Crafts has done posts the last few weeks with her schedule for having a peaceful and satisfying Christmas season.  I am hopping on the bandwagon and following along!  I have already purchased one gift and two stocking stuffers.  SO excited!!  Check out her Christmas organization posts here and here.

I thought this was an appropriate song considering the day.

Fill In The Blanks

So I love this idea!  It is from Lauren at the little things we do.  I am a little late on the band wagon but I think that this might become my Friday post from now on.  Jump on up on the bandwagon with me peeps!

1.   Somewhere someone is  eating a deep fried oreo and I may or may not be jealous.  Mostly jealous.

2.  Lately Vampire Weekend   is/are my muse.

3.  It would suck if  peanut butter m&m's  was no more because,  they are my new obsession. 

4.  My Lola crawling into bed with me  is/are my favorite thing about today.

5.  Life is kind of like   a big kharmic shit bag some times.  My actions always bite me in the ass.

6.  If I could have anything I wanted I would want   to live an indie lifestyle.  Making enough money to live on from the things Nick and I create.

7.  A funny thing happened the other day...    when I realized that I drive a Ford Escort.  An escort?  The people at Ford must be pervs.

not sure what the title should be

I love that picture of the mister and I!  We took it at a concert.  The concert was awesome and the company was awesome!  Not that it has anything to do with this post but it makes me smile to see it.  And that is something I need a lot lately.  I feel out of sorts lately.  Extra emotional and needy.  And crazy distracted.  I am not sure why.  We have been having some serious health issues in my family the last little while.  That could be it.  For some reason that doesn't seem like the source of my feelings.  I need to find confidence and inspiration.  I used to have a fire lit under me and I feel like maybe I have let it peter out.  That is something you have to feed and nourish and I have let other things smother it out.  So weird how I married an incredible man and made two amazing babies and I have lost my confidence along the way!  How is that possible?  I should be 40 times more confident in myself!  And unfortunately Nick has gotten the short end of the stick.  I am being a mean bitch!  Which I am trying to work on.  I don't mean to sound pitiful and I am usually much more upbeat but the last few weeks have been doozies!    

However, I do think that a little time away with the family would help and a few girls nights are in need.  And maybe even taking the plunge and opening my Etsy shop.  I have had the name reserved for months now.  I just read this post at a beautiful mess and it was definitely something I needed.  It hardly even had anything to do with how I am feeling but I for sure need to work on being inspired!  Any ideas that will help a crazy lady?

30 Day Photo Challenge

Day #7
Something new

I had something completely different planned for this picture.  I got crazy excited when I saw this magazine at the market.  Oh how I love this magazine every year!!!  And this one didn't disappoint.  I wish I could see the Martha Stewart studios!  It would be amazing I am sure.

To see the challenge go here!

Some of the fruits (and veggies) of our labor!

Having a garden is so satisfying!  I am not sure what it is about picking a veggie that I have grown myself but I get a warm fuzzy feeling of pride.  

I guess it is extra gratifying because I usually kill plants.  Deader than a doornail.  I have the blackest of black thumbs.  It is like kohl it is so black.  Our garden must be growing so well because my babies sing sweet songs to them.

Back tomorrow with the continuation of the Photo Challenge!  I am a slacker.... sorry.

Sunday Songs

There isn't an official music video for this song.  But it is so worth the listen!

I saw this on A Cup of Jo and had to pass it on!  

Photo Bombing!

Have you heard of photo bombing?  I hadn't until the mister told me about it.  It is when someone jumps in the picture behind you and makes a funny face without you knowing.  Nick had told me about it the day before we took this picture.  As you can see my nephew totally photo bombed us!!  Funny kid!
