And now I want more pink.

Why I now definitely, positively want pink curtains in our family room. {I need this to happen} Specifically, the fabric below (dangerously available and not ridiculously priced). And why I now want to paint more rooms pink (that part won't happen - our kitchen is already pink).  I thank Katie, who sent me the link to this house. :) I can just see these pink curtains, all sidled up to our Christmas tree, brightening up the room.  

Despite the fact that I absolutely love white furniture and whites and grays and burlaps and wood and all things simple and modern and country all the same, it turns out I can never seem to resist color and pattern.  I want things to be so perfect and matching.  But I have given into the fact that my house will naturally always look as if a 5-year old little girl came in and threw up her most favorite possessions and colors all in one room.  Which is what is happening now.  I can see it now before my eyes.  For example - on my coffee table - my favorite classic blue serving bowl, filled with classic-colored felt pinecones (Parents of toddlers, don't fill bowls with ornaments.  Bad things will happen.  Trust me.), then added to silver tinsel and hot pink puffy pom-poms?  What?!  Yeah. Oh, well.

And on that note, glorious pictures of that beautiful pink-ness of a house, all from Young House Love {post here}.  I also like the owner's blog, where she talks about her inspiration and art, and where she got the colors for her walls.

Pretty pink flats.

So, I used some 8 moms credits to get these shoes on Sole Society...for free!!  Woohoo!  I'm super excited about them.  I was honestly a little skeptical because of the prices, but almost every single shoe is real leather and really well styled.  You guys should check them out.  The deal is still going on!  $25 for $50 worth of shoes (p.s. they have free shipping, too, so there are no extra costs if you order a $50 pair of shoes).

Layla Grace Website and a special deal!

Hi, all!  Just a little affiliate news from Layla Grace!  Layla Grace recently updated their website and has some fun new features.  First, they've introduced product reviews (I'd be lost without product reviews). Second, an opportunity to see how all of your products come together by creating inspiration boards. And, lastly, favorite-ing your favorite items as you go along.  Oh, yes, and a seriously cool blog.  Hope you all enjoy the new features!  Here are some of my current favorite products that would be perfect for baby shower gifts or the little ones in your life.  Honestly, though, they have an amazing selection of home items and even clothing and jewelry.  I just get side-tracked by the cute kiddo things.  :)

p.s. Earring fans: If you "like" them on facebook (see here), you can get 20% off one of my absolute favorite accessories if you order by tomorrow.




They grow and grow.

One of my favorite photos ever.  My mom knit these aprons for the ladies in our family when Rosie was just a little one, and now the baby one fits E.  So crazy.  I'm amazed by how much Rosie has grown up and how amazingly big my baby has become.  

To keep track of Eloise's updates for favorite things she does right now:
* Always wakes up happy.  Always.  I love seeing her smile in the morning.
* Gets right up in our faces constantly and says really loudly "HI, MAMA!" or "HI, DADA!"
* And then proceeds to point out every part of our face..."nose, eyes, ears, cheeks..."
* Counts to 10, often skipping 7 and 8 for some reason.
* Waves and says hello very loudly when she sees us from afar.
* Dances and shakes maracas (her favorite) like nobody's business.
* Hugs her stuffed animals as tight as can be around the neck.
* Is able to ask for what she wants and knows where things are now.
* Screams in sheer delight when she hears Elmo on TV.

And if I had time, I'd list a million more...

It's the small things.

I printed this out for our fridge.  I need to be reminded of this.  It's the small things that count most times.

Carry it.

Following the theme of handbags, here are some I'm a fan of this fall...Loving all the classic shapes with a bit of a twist.

p.s. I'm going to use a little time tonight to schedule some posts for next week so I get out of my blogging once every two weeks rut.  I hope.  I miss it.
