: *Question* :

Hey Lovelies ---

Just a quick question for you, I have had a few comments from readers that you miss my blog role on the right side of my blog, is this true for most of you?

So let me know, do you want the blog role back {blog role: a list of my friends blogs} and do you want to be on it if I do bring it back?


: Friday ramblings...:

This week like any other has just flown by and I can't say I really have anything tangible to show for it.

I know that I have a had a stirring in my heart on a few different levels and that feels good. I've started writing a sequel to my "rite of passage" post from a few days ago. It's always interesting when God ministers to my heart from my own posts - HA!
* * *
I'm constantly taking pictures {typically with my phone & typically I'll send them to Mr. L to stay in touch through the day}, so here are my photos from the last few days {Wednesday afternoon on} sometimes I find that my photos say much more than I could...

I'm continually thankful for the provision God gives to my and my little family. Today I'm overwhelmed by His grace and mercy and thankful that He sacrificed everything for me..to say that I'm not worthy of this gift would be a huge understatement, but I'm aware of the gift He gave and ever thankful.

Have a wonderful afternoon Lovelies and a great weekend, might be back over the weekend with some of my thoughts, in the meantime check out Jenn's blog post today -- she's got some great tid-bits to share!



: What I LOVE Wednesday :

Well here we are back at mid point in the week -- I've got a small spattering of things I'm in love with so without further adieu here they are:

I found this site as I was stumbling through the internet the other day, and oh my goodness they have beautiful {specific} paper products, I'm a sucker for paper products; stationary, boxes, cup&lids I love it all and Garnish has a beautiful assortment of treasures. Can't wait to have to order them for an event some day!
The Vintage Sisters
Vintage Sisters has been around for almost a year now, they are two local sisters who love to craft and have decided to make it a little side business...I saw some of their work first hand at one of my friends places the other day and let me tell you it is BEAUTIFUL!!! Looking forward to ordering my first item from them very soon!
Royal Design Studio
I'm looking for something to jazz up our master suite and I stumbled across RDS -- I love their stencils -- I think the one below is the one I would pick for our room and I would probably use it {more tone on tone} in our laundry room as well. Check them out, the options are endless!
Yogurt Parfait
I'm a huge lover of mason jars and when I found this idea on Pinterest I knew I had to make it for Mr. L -- often times he doesn't have {or make time} to eat breakfast, but this quick and easy {& healthy} meal to go is just perfect! Another reason to LOVE Pinterest -- Pinterest Mr. L loves you too...Proof is here
I'm off to get ready for ladies missions night tonight which is bound to be lots of fun, women, God, faith, make-up & dessert...really, could it get any better!?!? ;)

Have a beautiful Wednesday night lovelies!



: Movie Review :: Something Borrowed :

I'm home again today with both boys. Jacob napped for 2 hours yesterday and still slept for 12 hours straight last night. Cole on the other hand was up and down 8 times. Mr. L slept like a newborn baby!

I felt both boys still needed another day to rest before we got back into the school groove, but I'm pretty sure they are almost back to normal...still a little cuddly which means they are not quite normal, but I'll take the cuddles any day!

Today I finally broke down and made cookies with them {they had been asking for weeks!}, what's a sick day with Mama if you can't bake cookies together!?!?

Anyway, onto the *MOVIE REVIEW* of "Something Borrowed"

I know I know, I'm a little behind - this movie has been out for well, almost a year...I know I live under a rock, it's true!

So, it was originally a book. I read the book {warning: a little on the racy side} I loved the book -- it was an easy read and I literally read it in 24 hours. But if you know me you know I love to read and almost always have one or two books on the go.
The movie didn't dissapoint either. All the actors were great and played really realistic roles. I could identify with all of them in one way or another.
Here is my top 10 favorites about this movie:
*it's placed in NYC & the Hamptons
*love the Salt&Pepper dance sequence - so fun!
*the girl on the park bench when Marcus is talking to Rachel is reading the book called "something blue" it's the sequel to "something borrowed"
*I love the Lands End tote Rachel has
*Men with deep set eyes and low eyebrows are naturally attractive to me
*I enjoy the fresh looking make-up that Rachel wears
*I wish I could wear lace shorts like Darcy
*I love the thought of a beach house on a beach like that
*I love that they stuck to the book {almost!}
*I really love that at the very end of the credits {which I didn't realize until I watched it a second time} that there is a "...to be continued" sign ~ oh yeah!
I R E A L L Y love movies that are based in the Hamptons or just close to a large body of water, all of my favorite movies are based close to water --- I wonder what that says about me...maybe I need to be moving closer to a large body of water! HA!

That's it for today Lovelies! I've got a few things {like organizing my closet} that need to get done...nothing fun, but must be done!

Have a great Tuesday evening!


: Weekend Recap :

This weekend was a full one {what weekend isn't really!?!?} -- it was great to have lots of girl time and a good spattering of family time in there as well!

I wasn't around here on Friday as I was preparing a cake for the beautiful Sonia. It was her Canadian wedding shower and her absolutely darling MIL planned a beautiful tea along with one of my cakes. Simply stated, elegant and a little sassy; just like her DIL Sonia. Here is the cake:
Friday night after taking a break from cake making I went to join in celebrating these two lovely peoples..Laura a childhood friend had her second baby, little brother to Kenzie; Levi. Isn't he scrumptious!?!!
The details were perfect! Here is Jessi and the super host Lisa {Laura's older sister} Loved this little frame; gotta find out where Lisa got it!
Such a darling little guy! Congratulations Josh, Laura & Kenzie!
We took some time on the FREEZING cold Saturday afternoon to go fly a kite...it was supposed to be this dreamy family time of flying the kite. In between trying to get the kite up in the killer wind, with the temperature of that wind being less than dreamy, with three out of four of us having no clue how to fly a kite...it wasn't exactly the most delightful family time.
This is the picture I took just before I took the reigns and smoothly and effortlessly smashed Tigger into a nearby cherry blossom tree and got him stuck real good. The Mr. was NOT impressed with my talent in getting Tigger stuck.

Tigger was rescued on Sunday after church and a small fight with the cherry blossom tree. No children or wives were harmed in this lovely family outing ;)
Sunday night we headed out to my parents for my brothers birthday. We had a nice roast beef dinner with all the trimmings. Here is my brother and his wife Lindsey {she due to have a baby boy in early April}
This was that shot I took just as I said smile...couldn't help but post such a delightful & happy shot! Happy Birthday JORD! I have a feeling 2012 is going to be one of your best years yet ;)
I wasn't on here on Friday but I didn't for get my "52 weeks of blessing" for last week...this is what it was: Small kitchen candle in Pineapple Mango in the colour of the year "Tangerine Tango" -- don't remember how much it was but it wasn't expensive and I just added the cost into my grocery bill so that it wouldn't be an expense on top of my regular shopping.

Card is made up of a paint chip I picked up while walking past a paint shop on my way to the post office..so cute, no?

{Also I have yet to deliver it as Friday I had a change of plans -- but I will do it before this Friday and the next blessing}
Hope you all had a great weekend, our weekend ended with Jacob waking us up at 5 am by puking on our floor and me ushering him towards the washroom stepping in it and well, you know how that goes.

But the sun is out, both my boys are down for naps after a bowl of chicken noodle soup {thanks Cambell's!} and I'm off to do a load or two of puke laundry -- the joys of being a Mama are really endless, no!?!?

Have a great one Lovelies in whatever season you are in, remember the small things are what count the most!
