21 Stinkin’ Weeks (that’s almost 5 months!)

Gus Week by Week
Can you believe my little dude is almost 5 months old?  I can’t.  I haven’t posted much about life with Gus so I thought I’d take a sec to show off his first 21 weeks of being alive.  This is the perfect time to do a post like this because he’s getting to the point where he’s starting to do stuff.  No more little infant blob, now he rolls over, and jumps, and sits in the high chair, and laughs, and getting teeph, and is right on the verge of doing tons of new stuff crazy stuff too.  So here he is my little baby, getting all growed up.

Love ya Gus!

Color Crush

color pallete crush
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love all of the colors featured in this photo from Ferm Living.  I couldn’t resist doing a puglypixel.com style “Colour Lover” piece when I came across all my favorite colors in one place.  I would also be happy to include any of these wonderful textiles from the Ferm Living shop in my home too, especially those triangle pillows.  Ahhh, a girl can dream can’t she.

If you’re not familiar with my love of all things teal and tones of grey check out my living room, where you will find all of the above colors mentioned.


But wait, more teal & mustard, West Elm has me all figured out too, these vases are all too perfect for me, plus it’s hard to resist that honeycomb texture.  I don’t know what I am waiting for (money maybe) but I want them so.

Geez, I guess this is turning into more of a wish list than a color crush.

And since I am on a roll, how ’bout topping it off with super cool Henny blanket/throw from my favorite place in the whole world, I  K E A!   Now we’ve got our dark and light grey bases covered, Hooray!

Glitter Pinecone Ornaments

Homemade 2011 Ornaments
After helping my mom hang decorations on her Christmas tree last weekend, I realized how almost every year growing up we made a handmade ornament, whether it were at school, Sunday school, or at home with Mom. Inspired by a sparkly pinecone I created as a little runt, I made a late night trip to the drug store on Monday night to stock up on glue and glitter.

Ornaments Ready to Hang
Our final product, ornaments for each kid plus some to use as gifts for Moms, Dads, Grandmas & Grandpas.  The project itself was super easy, but keeping the glitter on the pinecones was a little harder.  I recommend using a large Gladware or Ziploc container to sprinkle your glitter in, a paper bowl to roll your glue in and paper plates to rest your final product.

Friend Feast 2011

FRIEND FEAST 2011
We made it to our 7th annual Friend Feast! If anything, we’ve proved that even though we’re all a little older, we still know how to shot gun beers.

Here’s to another good year of hanging with friends and family.
