Week in Review

Happy Friday everyone! This week was a nice and mellow one for me compared to last weeks craziness – planning for the Adoption Day and Finn’s birthday party. We have laid pretty low around here getting caught up on work and cleaning and organizing. Finn’s actual birthday was Tuesday, and just he and I spent the day together, as Josh had to work. We didn’t do anything exciting (unless you count going to the doctor for shots exciting). Poor guy, I made him go to his one year check up on his actual birthday. :(

I did give him his first peanut butter sandwich in honor of the one year milestone, and he LOVED it. But even more, he LOVED sharing it with Hannah… (what a mess!)

Hannah can just hear the word peanut butter and she will smack her lips like she is thirsty… (not kidding) it’s pretty funny.

Other happenings:

My friend Maria, of Dreamy Whites has a pretty amazing giveaway happening now… she interviewed me for the blog, and is giving away a $600 gift certificate to my shop. You can use it on ANYTHING you choose. Design work or merchandise, and in either of my shops, Etsy or this shop. Please go enter if you haven’t already, there is still time a little time left.       Enter Here

I’ve really enjoyed reading through the comments all week. They make me feel pretty great and have certainly helped to boost my confidence a little. I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired lately. My friend Kimberly, wrote a post yesterday that is so in tune with how I have been feeling lately. I think I need to perk up and find the “happy” in more things.

I did shower and get dressed today, which I must admit has lifted my spirits tremendously. :) Especially because I have a new shirt to wear. (You have to love the Gap and the constant sales they have!). Isn’t crazy how a new $17 blouse can have that much of an effect on your mood?


Next week I have something exciting to share. Monday in fact. I am so pumped to be a part of it, and I am so scared at the same time. It’s something I have never done before, so I am really challenging myself to step up and be creative, and at the same time share more of myself than I have before. I am totally a hermit, antisocial homebody, so I can’t even tell you how challenging some things are for me.

Stay tuned, and check back Monday! I hope it’s something you’ll all join me for….

    Hey sweetie
    I am a bit of a hermit too I get that totally but one thing I must tell you is that you are a constant inspiration to me… Being such a beautiful mamma to your little man, treasuring what you have is all that is really important – you make people like me smile …. and you are an amazing designer/photography and so much more so from the other side of the world on a pretty sunny winters day… Thank you :)xoxoxo

    I know how you feel Sara, I have been feeling pretty uninspired in myself lately! But you are so super talented and you certainly inspire others out there, especially me.
    I can’t wait to hear your exciting news!!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend.
