today is foggy... dreary... i'm tired. so i'm browsing pretty bedroom spaces. oh, to have oodles of $ to make our bedroom as dreamy as some of these. some are cool, some are comfy, but each one has something that i like. you can draw inspiration from almost anything nowadays. see if you'd feel at home in any of these spaces:

it's just been one of those days. the girls are fighting, literally, non stop. i feel like all i do is yell at them to stop. i have a pounding headache. baby is taking a while to fall asleep. the girls are being too loud. M isn't home for lunch (for that much needed break that i need). it's gloomy and cold outside. i just feel blah. down. defeated. motherhood has it's ups and down... and if i'm being honest, today is one of those down days. reading other mom blogs can be a wonderful thing b/c you know you are not alone. there are hundreds of thousands of moms out there, blogging about this exact same thing. now, i only read a precious few but one that i read today gave me a great quote that i want to share here:
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
it might just give me that extra little push to get through to bedtime tonight. thanks alyssa!

this is what is staring me in the face every time i walk into my kitchen.
is it ok that each moment i attempt to scurry by the pan, i snag a little sliver? many, many teeny tiny pieces couldn't possibly add up to one enormously large serving, right?
mmmmm... chocolate... pecans... melted marshmallows... gooey goodness!
here's the recipe. don't tell me i didn't warn you!

so, i may be cheesy but i happen to love traditions within the family sector. i really do. and the annual family trip to the lake is no exception. my little family unit of 5 with a fabulous aunt and uncle and a wonderful nana and papa... staying at a great little cabin with all the amenities... enjoying the hot weather... eating well... it can't be beat. we go to clear lake every august long weekend and we always have a fun time. here are just a few snapshots from this past weekend.
at some point during the weekend, we always take the girls to throw stones into the lake.
they absolutely LOVE it!
just the five of us... check out little K's face?! priceless!
big K and me!!! i love this little girl to bits and pieces!!
another tradition... eating ice cream, every darn evening!
this is baby H's first taste of real ice cream! mmmmm! she LOVED it!!
mmmmm... shrimp boil. like i said, we eat VERY well out there!!!
