Sometimes...

I really feel like the kiddos punish you when you go out of town you know...

my oldest has been snuggling with me all week...which normally she does with Daddy...so I'm definitely loving that...

but my youngest...granted she is a little under the weather right now...has had a week of this....

and this...
and then she looks adorable when she cries...and I laugh...yes...I laughed today when she was bawling her eyes out from a week of no sleep...because I thought she looked cute when she was crying...I know, "bad momma", right...I couldn't help but laugh because this week I was thinkin' was going to be a breeze with being on vacation last week...but
she's making me work for being gone...YEP...I think I need a vacation from the vacation...{you ever feel that way}...but then I guess that would be continuous right...

now don't be looking at my beautiful honey glazed cabinets...I am determined they will be white lets say in 2-3 months...I've got one talented uncle who paints so well it could make you scream...and I think I'm going to do it without you know...the consent {changing them white}...I'm going to go a-askin' my uncle when he has free time...you know...but I'll only do it if you all...have my back...{he, he, he}...when hubby gets home and they are completely different...I can count on you, right?

please tell me to go for it...because I should right?...can't get any better than someone in the family who does an amazing job...

...it really has been one "fun" week...but I tell you...I'm not going to complain because I'm thinking of this guy on the beach...
and that does just the trick...

you know what I mean?

and well this too...{chuckle, laugh here}

can you believe this beautiful bow...
and it's in red...
but I took the plunge and did it anyway...
I'm scared of red everyone...I'm terrified...
and I think I just noticed it could be out of stock now when I went to link it...good thing I got it just in time:)

and  this is the one I was originally after...

sigh...they are out of my size...so I found the above dress...and the bow sucked me in...don't you hate that...

now all I have to do is wait until spring to arrive to wear the darn red bow I'm terrified of...

twiddling my thumbs right about now:) sigh...

I'm craving mahi mahi right about now...grilled fresh...right in front of you...

No it is not a craving because of anything...I just cannot get enough of that fish...and well...I am too scared to try to cook it on my own...maybe just maybe in a couple of month's I'll bribe my mom to do it...since "ahem" she's the chef in the family...me...not so much...that gene totally skipped me...I'm thinking my oldest may acquire it though...

I know this is a bit of randomness...but I've got nothing else this week since you know little has not been well and I'm avoiding all things that need to be done around the house {ahem...laundry}

I suppose you all know by now...laundry is my WORST enemy...by far...I was doing so well not leaving it on the floor...well until you know...the vacation...UH!

uh-oh...Madison just informed me Hayley ate the lip saver...GREAT...it was a brand new stick too...better get going'

I have your back on the white cabinets! Go for it! I painted my honey ones white on the uppers and grey on the lowers and it brightens up our tiny little kitchen so much. The dress is darling... I am also a little afraid of red..

Girl, I've got your back too, paint those babies and don't look back!! And, I laugh when my son cries too, not at him but as he sits in time out I snicker cause he is soooo dramatic....I honestly have no idea where he gets the drama, definitely not from his momma! (she smiles)...have a wonderful weekend!

Julie said...

White cabinets...absolutley...and the second dress had me at the ruffles.

Londen @ Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

Yes, paint those cabinets, you will be so happy you did. And to have someone do it for you..that is too easy.
Hope your little one feels better. Love the dresses!

Tracey said...

She is awfully cute...even when she's crying! But I know what you mean about how they punish you for going out of town...I have that to look forward to in April!

Good luck painting your cabinets! How fun!!! I've pulled a few "while you were out" episodes on my hubby before too...sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's goota do :)

Thanks so very much for the sweet email Martha!!! You are just such a wonderfully kind person!!! I'm glad you liked everything...sorry I was a little slow in sending it...

Hugs ~
