Oh yay Friday. One of the reasons why I love you so much is because I don’t have to wake up early tomorrow to get kids off to school.  And what would be even better is if this weather would stop raining so much.  I actually planted some flowers today and it was weird that I had to bundle up before going out. But oh how nice of the sun to decide to come out AFTER I planted my flowers. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

And now that it’s Friday, it’s confession time!!!!!!

♥   I secretly wish I could be a professional chef.

♥   I have been told that I watch The Food Network  the way a man watches porn.

♥   I could seriously watch Food Network all day and not get bored.

♥   I think it started when watching Julia Child when I was a child.

♥   I wish I lived in England.

♥   I have had a fascination with England since I was little.

♥   This is so girly, but I so want an English Cottage with English garden.

♥   One of my favorite shows of all time is “Keeping up appearances”.

♥   I told my SIL if something was to ever happen with our hubby’s, we should move to England and live in a Victorian house and make a giant garden.

♥   My husband thinks I’m crazy.

♥   I’m excited that I finally have my own yard to start building my dream flower garden.

♥   Um……….it’s still pretty naked.

♥   Don’t judge.

♥   I’ve been having incredibly high anxiety lately so I’ve been leaning towards flowers to try and calm me.

♥   I feel that I’m becoming more socially awkward and I don’t know what has changed to make me be more anti-social…………….

♥   I am going to go online after this post and buy more flowers……

Anyway now after all this English talk, I’m thinking certain shows on Netflix are calling my name to watch. I’m the only one in my house that watches them, but I can’t help it. I love it and have watched British comedies my entire life. (And I’m obsessed with Monty Python….ooooooh ya….)

Anyway I hope you have a great weekend. I know I will. I have more planting to do. 🙂

Good night 🙂



Um….purrr…..I LOVE me some Harrison Ford. And as Indiana Jones……even better. These are movies that I watch over and over and never get tired of.  So on my weekly (well, usually daily, but I need to keep up some dignity. ha ha) I found some fun items that I’m thinking will need to be added to my collection…..

Even though I’m an artist as well, I still love seeing others work! This is beautiful!! (source)

Have you ever seen Dinner for Schmucks? I saw this and it totally reminded me of that! (source)

These are so awesome!! (source)

k, no baby for me, BUT if I had one, I would get this!! (source)

This is excellent for my sweet tooth! (source)

Look at these are now making me want to have an Indiana Jones weekend. And I think I may…… 🙂

Have a great night loves!

I wanted to post this yesterday, but instead I opted to watch 30 Rock  with the hubby while eating root bear floats. There are some things that I just can’t pass up.

It seems this winter has been creating more beautiful sunsets than usual. And maybe it does this every year, but this year they just seem to stand out more. I’m very thankful that we were able to find a house with a view that is amazing.

And with this I need to share………

The last one was from Rylie’s room. I just LOVE it!

Thank you pollution for making this possible. 🙂

In ways this will tie into my last post. Traveling is very high on my list of things I want to plan towards, but for now will start with the small stuff.


My big plans now are to redecorate my house.  (And clean EVERYTHING). We have been in our house for a year and feel like I have not been able to do the things I’ve wanted to do. Mainly because it was our first year of marriage and also we were trying to figure out how to all live with each other. Getting married with kids from the start does present some challenges. (All worth it though.)

I’m trying to add more color and decorations. Our house still seems so naked and really, we don’t have much up.  I’ve been getting a lot of advice from my SIL on things to add and now it’s really starting to hit me how much I want to revamp our house.  I’m constantly looking at Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn for ideas on how to redo our house. As I’ve stated numerous of times before, I love anything vintage so that will definitely play in the picture as well.

The first two things I’ve started buying things for decorating is Rylie’s room and our bathroom. (Weird combo, I know.) But I have found things that just shouted to BUY IT NOW so I couldn’t pass them up. Rylie’s room I officially decided that I’m going to do it in an owl theme.


Similar to this……She does have a brown bed which I’m planning to paint white.

I’ve only purchased two things so far, (a little pricey) but am planning to do some artwork for her walls as well.

I got her this…….

And the green owl which I got here

For the bathroom I want to do a vintage Parisian theme.  And the only thing I really got so far was a vase with Flowers and this sweet Eiffel Tower picture.


My dreams:

My dream is for us to have this year be healthier than the previous years. I’m including my SIL and in-laws as well in this.) It seems someone is constantly sick and it’s very tiring. It hasn’t always just been a little cold or sniffles here and there. It’s been stuff that really takes you down. Like when I first was diagnoses with Celiacs. I was pretty much green I was always sick. Then kids with croup, severe kidney infections, MS, Crohn’s disease……’s very tiring that we can’t just be healthy for more than a month it seems.

(Don’t let me down 20011!!)

And finally…….

My Goals:

  • Take the kids to Disneyland within 2 years.
  • Travel to Europe on our 5 year anniversary. (Mainly Paris, Rome, and Venice.)
  • Progress in my art (Maybe start my won business…I don’t know.)
  • Take some design classes.
  • Take a photography class.
  • Take some sewing classes.
  • MAYBE have one more baby.

These are things I want to accomplish under the next 5 years. This shouldn’t be too hard should it?
