A kinda random, eclectic mix of things that caught my eye this week...
Coffee and a cute owl. A perfect match:)
Root-beer Popsicles! Okay...I have to explain my history with root beer for you to understand how much I cannot wait to try these popsicles this summer!...Root beer was the thing I "craved" when I was preggers with Niamh. (I gained 14 pounds in one month from that stuff. Oh, and the angus burgers from Burger King. Yeah, you might wanna pull your jaw up off the ground;)...It is humanly possible to gain half the allotted baby weight in 4 weeks. And yes, my mid-wife was very unhappy with me. But here's the thing-- root-beer doesn't have any caffeine in it; so, for a soda addicted lady with a baby in her belly, it was the natural way to go. Case in point-- Niamh swam around in amniotic fluid that probably had traces of root beer taste all through it...and now the child is ruined forever;) This treat will be a nice little snack for the both of us root-beer addicts.
Speaking of Niamh, I saw one of these creatures on the Dainty Squid a while back and initially thought it was a photoshop-ed animal. It's not. (And he is like the cutest thing ever.) It is called an axolotl. I showed it to Niamhy...and this what she brought home from art class this week...
I love that kid:)
I pretty much live in skirts and dresses in the summer, so I've been keeping an eye out for some pretty ones. This one is from Anthropologie. It looks like a comfy tee shirt-- maybe a little see-through (cute beach cover-up potential:) It is called the "Slubby Tulip Dress"...Slubby. That is a funny word. And makes me totally want this dress.
Johnny Cash in a bottle. Yes please.
Pretty meets hicktown. I believe in leaving your Christmas lights up all year long;) Here's a way for me to do it...and not have people just wanna yell "gittrdone" at our house when they drive by.
Ever seen the old Swiss Family Robinson movie? I loved that movie when I was a kid. Wouldn't it be fun to just try living like that?...
Phil and I have driven across country twice (not for vacation purposes)...I'd love to give it a go with the kids one summer...Just head out with no plan...Let each day surprise us. Definitely in our future. Definitely:).
I love this girl's face.
Do you ever do nutty things like this?...You should. Just for a good laugh. Keeps you feeling like a kid:)
