monday mess * post thanksgiving

thanksgiving mess 5_la la lovely

how are you holding up friends?  was thanksgiving crazy?  restful?  busy? thankful?  i’m kinda feeling the word to describe my thanksgiving is blurr.   i tried to be present but with 15 extra people visiting for the week, i feel like everything was in fast forward.  i wish i could have sat down and had individual time with each person.

whilst i was hoping to have cyber monday biz to share with you, i must admit i don’t (so will you share some good deals with me?).  i instead have a sick puppy today.  and by puppy i mean kid.  specifically the one pictured above.  so we are cuddled up in bed watching movies and snuggling.  and, anyhow, i thought you’d like to see some mess.  because, maybe it will make you feel better as you are cleaning up yours today.  be back tomorrow with la la loving (+ gift guides later this week).

more mess, including lego carnage, (and what is hidden in the cabinet) after the jump :

p.s. if you want to see my house, clean, check out my home tour on design mom!

    First, very sorry you have a sick little one. I seem to be hearing that from a lot of moms these days! Second, LOVED your house tour, but also nice to see a messy version too so I feel more normal! :)

    Hope your little one feels better soon… our days off went by so fast and it was just like that a blur… I am hoping to slow down for the next holiday.

    love this! and actually thank you for not sharing another cyber monday post. It appears the entire blog world teamed up today and posted the exact post. Cyber monday might be the death of me, it is impossible to escape when you are a blogger :) HA can’t wait for all the gift guide madness though :)
