little lovelies.

My brain has been on overload lately. With the adoption and endless projects around the house and laundry and children and traveling and dirty kitchen floors and laundry and photo books to make.... Ack. 
To do lists are my new favorite.
The truth is, all of the above just means I am super blessed with some awesome little companions, and another to come along soon, but a girl can get overwhelmed.
So what do I do when my list is fourteen miles long?
What every sane person does: procrastinate!
I like to distract myself with pretty things that will inevitably lead to more projects and a longer list. But, these things are lovely! And enticing! Take a look-see with me.

I keep looking at this dress. 
And hemming and hawing about whether or not to get it.
I love it. And wouldn't it look amazing with these?

I love everything about this:

There are days when I am so drained that I just want to pop the kids right into bed,
but this is a great reminder how important those few, quiet, snuggly moments are every day.

Which actually leads me to totally drool over this situation:

And in addition to all the things to do, there are about one million recipes on the agenda:

And things to make:

But most of all, there is this to remember:

I'll get to my list eventually. But for tonight, it's me and my family, and being thankful for everything we've got. Because even when it doesn't seem like it, there is so much to be grateful for.


  1. one of each thing, please!!!
    that heavenly book wall is killing me!


  2. I am totally drooling over that book wall, too! Procrastination is my weapon of choice against the deadly Task List, too. : )
