sick day

I spent today at home with my sweet little Harper Lee. It was so good to snuggle her after them being gone with their dad for a few days. Here's how we spent our sick day together.

1. some tulips that I kind of like better dead than I did alive
2. got all fancy with my nails
3. we saw a rainbow. and then a double rainbow. I was actually under rain when I took this and then it was sunny a few feet away.

We also watched lots of Garfield on Netflix, ate soup and giggled a lot. I also sold the kids' crib today. I tried not to shed a tear thinking about how time has flown so quickly that they don't even need a crib anymore. My sweet little babies are sweet little children who are growing too fast. Sutter even lost his other front tooth yesterday. Oh time, sometimes I wish you stood still.

The Animal Print Shop

these adorable baby animals portraits by Sharon Montrose put a huge smile on my face when I came across them a few months back. It was a very pleasant surprise to find them on yesterday, so it was hard to resist picking up a few for our home and a few as gifts.

Kinda perfect timing since the kids were just asking for a pet monkey! Check out the sale on Fab, or head on over to The Animal Print Shop to see even more sweet little animal faces.

bravo whitney deal

Ooohing and Ahhing over the recently-discovered dress collection from Whitney Deal.

Floral bridesmaid dresses sound like an 80s disaster on paper, but she's managed to make them sweet without being cloying. Would you have a floral-bedecked bridal party?

(EDIT: I've updated the post to include the link to Whitney Deal's website. I guess that's what happens when you post late at the end of the day!)

it's September what??!

I had a really enjoyable time posting random iPhone photos during the August Break, and I had all intentions of returning to regular blogging activities. Which I guess, for me, regular means posting whenever I get a chance or inspiration strikes. I really do keep meaning to be a better blogger, but it just never seems to happen. Maybe if I had a nanny, or a driver, or a maid. But then my life just wouldn't be my life, and that won't do.

I realized this evening that I haven't uploaded photos from our camera since the beginning of June. When I did, I found this photo Carl took of me crossing the street in San Francisco. Kind of made me feel like I had my own paparazzo. 

Happy Friday!
