Youngest Gleek.

I could never get sick of Glee. I have a big heart of love for Glee.
Love for, not so much...
Sam's renditon of  "Baby, Baby, Baby" was pretty darn good.
I would venture to say it was better than the Bieb's original. 
Biased? Maybe slightly. (Remember, big heart of love for Glee.)
And yes, I do wish my side swept bangs fell as nicely as Sam's did despite the dancing...
(I hate it when guys have better hair than me...annoying.)
I have to tell ya though, watching our 15 mos. old attempt to sing along & mimic the dancing to Sam on is freakin' priceless.  
She says "Whoaaaaa" and "Down, Down, Down" pretty perfect.
This alone makes the 2 min. clip worth watching at least 3 times a day...right?

Happy Feet.

This song makes me sing and dance around my living room....or in my car....or in the shower...
It never gets old.

I love me some Ryan Montbleau Band.
If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to their music or seeing them live, you gotta!
Seriously. Before they become the next big thing....because it WILL happen.
I promise.

You can find more about them on their website.

The Case of the Vanishing Monster Dust Bunnies

First let me point out that I am not a girl who is afraid to get dirty. I'm not a germa-phobia. I like animals...well many animals....

As mentioned before, I have two dogs.
Dogs do some gross things. Plain and simple. G-R-O-S-S.
Two dogs = double the gross-ness.

Over the last couple weeks, these two dogs combined have managed to make me cringe or gag more times than I can count. Kilo (6 yr.old beagle/black lab mix) is a garbage gut. He will eat anything that isn't shiny and might smell a little tasty. This leads to random "pukings"....

I'll leave that one alone. But let's say it happened the other day, ohhh no less than 5 times. Hork.

Porter (3 yr. old black lab) is part human, part labrador and part horse. Everything he does is loud and messy. He is the notorious toilet water drinker, turd eater and random bum rubber on the carpet.

Ugh. I bring you to this morning.

As I was drinking my coffee this morning, little clumps of dust began raining on my head. Ahhh. That's Nice. Not Really. I decided it was finally time to take on the task of cleaning off our fan in our cathedral ceiling-ed living room. I am severely allergic to dust. I hate this job. I never fail to finish in a sneezing attack and it kind of knocks me outta whack for the rest of the day. So, I put Avery down for a nap, started some laundry and let the dogs outside for a little bit. I proceed to tackle the dust colony overtaking my fan, letting it fall to the floor so that I can grab the vacuum to clean it up when I'm done.

I am astonished and feel slightly horrible at the amount of dust that has fallen onto my living room floor. I mean, the thing is always moving, so how does that colonization actually happen?!

Boogabee is asleep and the dogs are going nuts outside. (Ten minutes outside in the sun, in February is apparently wayyy too long.) So rather than let them wake a sleepy baby, I let them in. I run and get the vaccum and make a pitstop in the bathroom to grab tissues and wash my hands.

I come back outta of the bathroom to find that the huge dust colony has vanished.
Like, I can still tell where it was, but everything is gone. Completely.
In a matter of two minutes.

I don't know who did it. All I know is one of them has huge dust bunnies in their belly and I'm not looking forward to possibly cleaning those up later.
My vote goes to Kilo. But, you just never know...
You'd think they never eat.

Shop! In the Name of Love...

Browsing around Etsy happens to be one of my favorite things to do..
Oh man.
I think this print is so sweet.
I like the vintage-y eye chart style to it.

Heck, the whole shop is sweet. 
You can find that print and some other lovelies here.

I'm a sucker for poetry from way back. 
Let me tell ya,
 I love me some e.e. cummings.

This simple little card caught my eye.
I'm also loving this print from the same place.
Actually, there isn't much in this shop that I don't like..
One of each please!
When I found Lily Jane Stationary
and read the inspiration behind the business,
I wished I stumbled upon it wayyyyy sooner. 
10% of proceeds go to the March of Dimes.
A.k.a...kick ass stationery sold for a great cause 
that I also happen to have a soft heart for..
Quick, someone hide my purse!

This pillow cracks me up.

The other side.

Haha....Thanks go to Out On a Limb for the laugh!
(By the way, her Poppy Fields pillow needs to find it's way to my house)
Just sayin...

Ahh, so I leave you with this last lovelie...

One of my biggest loves is my daughter. 
This "Birth" necklace is the perfect piece of "mama" like jewelry for me.
I cried when I opened it on Christmas.

(P.S. This picture is not my necklace, just a example from the site to give you a visual.)
Me = Big fan of hand stamped creations. 
Go visit here....

Valentine's Day is a cutesy holiday and I'm not a hater. 
   I think it's fun to plan surprises or create cheesy valentines to bring 
an extra smile to those that are special to you. 
     Besides, who doesn't love another day to celebrate in life, 
   even in the littlest of ways?
  I hope every one of your days is filled with love!

Just a little gift...

It is pouring rain. Not my favorite. A good great  wonderful friend of mine sent me this link and brought a little sunshine upon me..
I thought I'd pass the sunshiney goodness on.  
Let Adele take care of the next 49 mins...
She is helping me wash dishes and finish the neverending laundry that is in my household....really, how do two adults & a baby accumulate so many clothes?! Sigh. 
Adele is perfect company.
