i love this quote....seriously. i'm pretty sure that all moms that stay at home w/ their children probably feel the same way. a working mom has to learn how to juggle things. it's taken me a while....but i am learning. what am i learning? well let's take today for instance- by the time 10:00 got here, i have already: feed myself and the kiddos, showered, bathed my kids, got dressed, dressed my kids, dried/ straightened my hair (the only reason i did this was b/c my hair needs to be cut so badly i'm running out of options), loaded the kids in the car, loaded 15 boxes into the car, dropped tay off at school, had an impromptu paint consultation in the parking lot of the school, drove to the post office, carried 15 boxes and walker into the post office, mailed 15 boxes while i sat walker on the counter at the post office (i debated the floor but i thought people would judge me), had a conversation w/ the postal worker about how to be more efficient w/ my mailing and what to do w/ a teething baby (i guess she felt the need to give me advise b/c walker was eating my keys and drooling all over the counter), did a major victory dance when i left the post office b/c i mailed 15 boxes by myself w/ a baby on my hip (i do this every day and it is seriously the most challenging part of my day), drove home, paid the mortgage, gave walker a bottle, put him down for a nap, did a post at the designer's attic, and now i am finally sitting at my desk getting ready to answer emails....thank you lord for providing coffee and work. i love being a mom and to have work in this economy is a blessing. i know that all of you moms out there probably go through the same kind of things on a daily basis. it makes me feel proud. you should too....try doing a victory dance (i did it to florence + the machine this AM). it's very powerful. and everyday when i leave the post office, i say- i did it...all by myself :)

do you ever find a song and it's just totally you....i do it all the time....and then i listen to it on repeat for an entire day and then i am tired of it. this weekend, this was my song....still not tired of it (but i am probably pushing it). on a different note, i just got a lulu dk chant pillow on ebay...if you love lulu like i do, check it out (someone needs to buy that twin duvet cover)!! happy, rainy monday.

me: our house looks like a bomb went off, seriously....i think, i will go into the bedroom and dump out our drawers just to make it look a little better.
hubs: it's awful.
me: i know. i am suppose to have a play date this afternoon....we are totally going to the park. no one can come into our house.
hubs: if someone knocks on the door, just run outside and start crying and act like we got robbed.
he's a genius :)

well, i'm officially off of my sick bed (thank you for the emails checking to make sure that i was not kidnapped by the strange van in my neighborhood...i totally left y'all hanging and i apologize). i caught some awful bug from walker and have passed it along to just about everyone i know. so i realize that i was going to show y'all my demilune purchase from scotts (please note: my house is a work in progress) i still need a mirror, lamp, to paint the pot the orchid is in, an entry way light, and i want to have my wallpaper lady cover the outlet w/ leftover wallpaper...but money doesn't grow on trees and i like the process of finding things so that's how i roll :)

i went to scotts this past weekend. i LOVE scotts. it rocks. lots of my bff's live in GA. i always try to meet up w/ them when i go. this past friday, we all got together for dinner and drinks. there is nothing like good girlfriends. we ate at the ivy. i kept asking if this was the same "ivy" as in LA but no one knew. i definitely didn't see any celebrities and in my head the ivy was a lot more glamorous in LA. i woke up on Sat. and made it my job to go to sephora. that place is like crack (more on that later). lenox mall didn't open until 10:00 but as i drove, i passed several yard sales....in a high end neighborhood in atl. so i had to stop. one lady tried to get me to buy a fox or maybe it was a mink. i saw this picture and it made me remember....
by 10:00, i was at sephora. hello, that place is super dangerous. i wanted new foundation. i got a lady name karen, who pointed out a lot of areas i need to improve on when it comes to makeup. in my head i hoped to leave looking like this:
okay....that is enough randomness...can you tell i have had a lot of coffee this AM! tomorrow i will show y'all the demilune i bought at scotts!
