This week

I love this old manor bejewled with balloons.  I think one of the rooms inside looks like this and I’d like to get lost in it.  It would make me very happy, especially on a Monday.  I’m trying not to get stuck on Monday though.  So . . .

This Week 

I want to try some new recipes {I borrowed my mom’s Look & Cook book & the pictures are simple & inspiring}

Find a basket/tray/catchall for my desk {have you seen anything like this that you love?}

Get lost in my book

Learn to French Braid

Downlaod the Real Simple & Instagram App

Take at least one big bag to goodwill

Wash my face every night before bed

Get a scoop of mint chocolate chip or nutty coconut or maybe both from Baskin Robbins

Start a list of baby names for soon coming baby boy {any suggestions?}

and so many other things

What about you?

    I love those balloons, too!

    I don't have any specific suggestions for a baby boy name but have you ever checked out this site:

    It gives names from all around the world, their origin and their meaning.

    Have a great week!

    I'm starting to think I'm aging way faster than normal and it might just be because I just am terrible and doing the wash before bed thing- laughed out loud when I read that one because I so can relate. On the baby names topic, honestly I'm slightly obsessed with that whole thing so if you tell me what you are looking for, I'd love to throw out some options- so fun!!!

    i just finished a book and there was a boy….actually a man….whose name was tug and i just love that name.

    and if there is a soup/food pantry near you….and if they take bags of your old things…..try there instead of good-will….it will be so much more appreciated.

    and can you believe that i have never ever gone to bed with make-up on my face…..i have to wash it every night. i'm addicted to face creams and cleansers….

    Nutty Coconut? I have never tried it. Sounds yummy.

    I have always liked the name Brighton for a boy.
