Hello blog community.
Happy Sunday to ya!

Sunday’s are never ever long enough for my liking…

but I’ll just have to make cupcakes and lemonade on another day.

Just a tiny bit excited for a normal week.. non holiday related.. and to get back on my ‘house cleaning’ schedule.
plus i bought a mop today.
cant wait to mop my floors!

I’ve learned how to make myself do things i dont like to do…
i just have to buy something new or cute to inspire myself.
(ie being excited about mopping) ย or excited to do laundry with a new smelling detergent… or to wash my hands anytime i walk by the guest bathroom.. bc the new soap in there is delish!!!
Same with waking up early..
if i have some new coffee.. or creamer.. or even a new bowl to put cereal in… i jump out of bed in the mornings…
(maybe im exaggerating about the whole jumping part… but you get the picture)

This sunday consisted of Church, a birthday party with friends and enchiladas! blowing bubbles with luke…. and a trip to bed bath and beyond… (got the mop and a cute rug to cover up New Years eve stains on our carpet ๐Ÿ™‚
hate to say i was lazy and made hamburger helper for husband & friend ย but now its football time for the boy(s) and im going to curl up in bed and watch netflix til my bed time ๐Ÿ™‚

Luke was in Costa Rica for 1 whole week!!!
my lip spent the majority of that week.. puckered out..:

When i wasnt being a baby about missing my baby…
i made use of my time by finally hanging things up in our house..
trying to make it a home ๐Ÿ™‚

Luke came home Late Wednesday… and we spent the whole day together on Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚

it was good.


Tonight i was craving Quiche. .. which still surprises me sometimes… i hated quiche with all of my might as a child.. and around the age of 15 it became one of my favorite foods.

PLUS ive been dying to use my new quiche dish from Crate and Barrel… so … Trash-Can Quiche was for din.

i dont think ive ever made quiche… ive probably assisted my mom before.. but this was a first time.. solo…
i kindof just threw stuff in there.. (hints the name trashcan-quiche)

Poured some milk
Poured some half/half
wads of cheese… veggies… salsa.. more cheese… s&p… nutmeg.. Eggs of course..
Fit perfect!
and was tastey!

friends/bridesmaids/bride at Amelie’s

This morning luke made breakfast… (one eyed jacks with baby sausages!)
He also packed my lunch.. which included.. pb sandwich, chips, organic fruitchew, can of nuts, bag of oatmeal, and a lemonade! hahah all stuffed into a victoria’s secret bag. hahah

what a sweetheart.


so here are 2 more etsy’s to add to the list of loves:

love this! they are all sold seperately.. but loved the colection of them around her neck! i’d wear them like this..

(The black spot books)

And this!


I’m having luke build us one of those! so cool!

Anyways.. hope this week is filled with inspiration and encouragement..
for us all!

Happy thanksgiving!

from our corner in Charlotte!
