Fave Friday

I’m up late with the turtle.  Yes, you heard me right.  We now have a turtle, at least for the time being.  I can’t imagine we will keep him long as I’ve since Googled the little guy and he is none other than a snapping turtle.  Besides getting the turtle (who I think should be named Turd – Turd the Turtle, yes?) I got a cold.  And haven’t been able to bear looking at the computer.  I decided to take it up tonight and have wasted most of my time on Pinterest and other various sites.

I’m glad it’s the weekend.  Are you?  This 4 kids thing is really starting to hit me.  I’m beyond tired.  Is there a word for that?

Here is to some rest and relaxation for one and for all!  I could def get my rest on in this conservatory.  Happy weekend lovelies!  As always, here are a . . .

A new children’s book I want to read.  She is my favorite children’s author/illustrator, after all.

One of my favorite blogs featured on Martha Stewart

This week I decided I want to empty my closet and start over.  I desperately need some new clothes but I also need to loose another 10 pounds first.  I could live in this or this and I think I might be able to get away with ordering this now + wear it now + later.

I’m having to wipe my drool after visiting this site

Sparky party, anyone?

Ombre makeup?  For real!  Would you?

Another fab IKEA idea

    Hello hello! Ugh I have been one of those people whose blogger feed kept dropping some blogs, so I started thinking I hadn’t seen any posts from you in a while. I popped over and found your new site hadn’t fed through! OH NO! Anyway, I am back and see that everything looks great and ticketyboo. Love the family shot a few posts down. Hope all is well with you. Lou x
