Alstroemeria. Especially Trader Joe’s cheap alstroemeria. Just what is needed for these dreary March days with dingy melting snow, puddles of ice, and temperatures fluctuating between hopeful and downright disappointing. Bonus: they last forever so I can enjoy this late winter pick-me-up for quite a while!
A four year old who vacuums.
The entire carpeted area!! And she does it really well! Can I get a yeah and a woooh?!! Anyone who has little kids knows how HUGE this is. Couch and bon-bons, here I come! (j/k of course, as anyone who has little kids knows!!) She does it every week!
Please don’t be jealous. Or try to kidnap her for your own carpeted areas.
I’m loving this series that Emily is doing over on her blog about how to work with areas in the home that are challenging and cannot be changed right now for various reasons. She has great practical and budget-friendly ideas..I’m especially liking her post on long, narrow living rooms (raises hand here). I’m sure we’d all love to wave a magic wand and change a few things around in our home, but budget and time, etc. don’t allow.
And her cute twins are adorable!
This tablescape is just too pretty. Wouldn’t this be a lovely Easter dinner table? Of course, at our house I’m not sure it would last long with a 2 year old around, but a girl can dream, right?
Sleep. I know, very lame, but it is a perennial favorite for me so I’m adding it. A certain cute 6 month old is going through a phase of waking multiple times a night and it is starting to get old. Hopefully he’ll get that tooth/decide nighttime is not for partying/realize he likes sleep as much as I do soon. I really can’t complain though as he has been a wonderful sleeper since birth.
