i am having a hard time focusing today....maybe b/c my baby is 4 months old and still doesn't sleep through the night or b/c taylor hopped in the bed w/ us at 4:00 this morning and thought it was time to get up or b/c my parents are in town and i would rather go and hangout w/ them :)
so i thought maybe some pretty pictures would work for a post or if you want a little more, go check out south of market's blog, they did a little Q & A w/ me (you should totally check out it out regardless....it rocks....as does their store if you haven't been to one!!)

lately i feel like i have spotted several kitchens sporting the same thing.....
can you guess what seems to be a growing trend? i personally really like it :)

we took the kids to the state fair yesterday (there's some interesting people watching at that place if i do say so myself). i wanted warren to ride some of those rides w/ me that spin you around and make you want to throw up when you get off of it....he said no way. we did ride the ferris wheel but that was about it. taylor had a blast on the kiddie rides and warren won her a giant pig. we all ate a foot long corn dog and called it a day. have y'all seen adventureland?? gosh, i love that movie....have a wonderful weekend!

right around the time taylor reached 6 months, i decided i needed help. i put an ad out at my old sorority house looking for a babysitter. we found the best one around. i miss katherine....she made me feel like i was still connected to college life. she sported the latest fashion trends, made me giggle w/ her stories about roommates/boyfriends/ and going out, and was great at telling me what was "cool" these days to listen to. she introduced me to the avett brothers. i'm really happy she did. some days i like to listen to this song on repeat (okay, this one too). i'm keeping my fingers crossed they play it tonight...
if i was real cool i would sport this to the concert.....
and then when it is over, i'd go home and crash in this amazing bed :)
happy hump day!
ps. i took this picture to my upholsterer to see how much they would charge to make this headboard for taylor's room- $475. looks like i am going to have to do another DIY project! yep, still undecided about taylor's room (she wants an adult bed aka. queen size) so i am thinking about using this.....

6th street design was so nice and asked me to participate in her week long series called good design, kids in mind. i feel kind of bad- she asked several designers questions about how to have a beautiful home and have kids. i was one of many who was suppose to give amazing answers.....
i feel like i have cheated.

taylor and i went shopping yesterday in hopes of finding an outfit for picture day. she informed me that she was a big girl and that she can pick out her own stuff now. i said "okay, sounds great"....then she exclaimed the only thing she wanted was a pair of princess shoes that light up on the bottom like sarah and jake have (ok maybe jake has buzz light year). i fought back the urge to say something like "seriously, you like those" or "good, gosh no"!! i just watched her as she walked out the door w/ bright red flashing lights going off on her cinderella tennis shoes...and she truly couldn't have been any happier :)

yep, it's definitely monday......
i was exhausted from traveling so i took a super long nap yesterday afternoon. not such a good idea...i found myself staring at the clock at 2:00 AM...then i found taylor staring at me at 6:30. coffee please.

before i went to bed last night, i picked up one of my dad's this old house magazines (do y'all read this....it has some good stuff from time to time) and saw this fun before and after kitchen. i thought y'all might enjoy it too! the backsplash kind of reminds me of tom scheerer's fabulous kitchens. i'm away for the rest of the week so i hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!
