.art + boys.

Sometimes in my happens...
and I love it.
What you see above happened at first by accident. Then on purpose. So I laughed. And hugged a little boy. And tried to force him to show my his hands for the photo...that was like pulling this is as good as it gets.

.montgomery + saturday.

Kevin Sullivan adapted today's short story by Lucy into an episode of Road to Avonlea - I think both versions are simply charming.

"The Sewing Circle met at Mary Gillespie's on my fortieth birthday."

.chairs + boys.

I got this chair when we moved into our new apartment.
It is a ladies' chair and fits my proportions exactly. I think it is gloriously comfortable, and it is in my favorite colors.
However, every time I sit down, at least one little boy comes crawling up to sit next to me. I could sit on the couch or the floor, and not have anyone want to cuddle, but as soon as I sit in this chair, up someone comes.
I had intended to use this chair as a place of refuge. A place just for me to be by myself while still being with my family. But now? Now it's a place where I can be a mama...which according to my boys means no personal space.

.chicken + sugar.

If you had told me that chicken and brown sugar would go good together, I might have laughed. But they go great together!!

I found the recipe I would like to share today on the 'net - it is brilliant!

I love that I had everything on hand for it, and I love that it is done in the oven. No frying - which is always a plus for this calorie counter. And by calorie counter, I mean that I would rather waste my calories on sugary treats than deep fried treats.

I also like that everything is mixed together like a paste - super easy! It was not too spicy - my 20 mos. old ate it.

.inspiration + clubs.

"You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." - Jack London
This quote just cracks me up. Every time I read it, I just laugh to myself.
I have been working on a new party line, and I have found that once I get ahold of one good idea, other ideas just sort of tumble into my head.
Where do you get your inspiration? And any requests for parties?
PS - don't you just love this little pendant? I received it with a recent Etsy order from The Third Shift!

.j + w.

I just love these two little boys!
They light up my life and their little ways just make me smile.

.projects + paperwork.

I had all sorts of blog plans, project plans, and maybe some nap plans...and then, real life.

My family and I ended up spending over five hours at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles getting our new car boys weren't too thrilled, and I definitely wasn't.

So we came home and everyone went to bed early!
I did manage to start a new project, though! I am redoing my spice cabinet - here's a sneak peek!
