The Little Things

These are the little things that are making me smile today…


Quick project in the kitchen. 

I took the door off and sewed this little linen curtain to go in its place.  I loved the idea so much when I saw it in this beautiful lady's livingroom (under their built in cabinets).


My green tea is a little nicer (and I don't miss coffee as much..ok..that is a lie) when I have this cute cozy on my mug. 


Because my iphone may be my closest friend I thought I should dress her up a bit.  How cute is this?  I love Kelly Rae!  LOVE her!!!


This weekend Maddy and I had our annual back to school shopping trip.

This year we went with our good friends Amy Jo and Lauren.

We ate at the White Chocolate Grill, shopped, the girls went swimming, they painted each others toes and did makeup and watched a movie…

    Today my little things is…..I woke my daughter up, fixed her breakfast. Helped her shower and fix her hair and as I was getting her snack to pack her bag I realized today was a no school day. So when I told the look on her face was priceless, she was fine when she realized we had a “free day together and we were already prettied up to have fun! I love the color of your kitchen!! And enjoyed your makeup pics!
