I've caught a bug...

Happiness is something that we choose and have to work to maintain.  I can easily find myself slipping into despair, jealously and discontent and then try and "make myself happy either with "things" or changing something major in my life RIGHT NOW.  It is these expeditious decisions that keep me in a place of constant unbalance, because I need a fix now.  It has always been hard for me to be patient and let things fall into place, the first step is admittance! Today i am happy.. and a huge part of that I have been surrounded by amazing women who make me happy and encourage and support me. Thank you! Their Happiness in contagious!!

100 days of school

 Today was Eli's 100th day of school!! So we had a party..of course. I was able to head up the party and then spend the morning with him in school. I love being able to spend time with him. So today I woke up early to finish the last touches for the party and I began to think of how much has changed in the last 100 days!
1. I am no longer home full time... LOVE my job, love the extra money...hate being away, hate mia in daycare...overall good change!
2. Mia is in daycare...HATE that..but i needed a break
3. We AREN:T moving..LOVE that we have a pretty good idea of what the next few years of our life will look like. 
4. Eli is 6!!! He is growing up so and hate that
5. Have developed an awesome group of girl friends .. love.. 
6. I have started hip-hop aerobics. hilarious!! 
Its just kinda fun to look back, even just 100 days ago, and see how much has changed!! It goes so quickly!!

Let there be light...

Good lighting really  makes a room..I love how a simple lighting switch can change the whole feel to a room from classic to funky or elegant to modern.  here are some of my current crushes
 These would be awesome in a white kitchen above a fun yellow or green island
 I know my little man would adore these in his room..we are actually thinking about changing his room from a younger pirate theme to an older (tear) room perhaps with a map theme?
 And how cool is this...and DIY EVEN BETTER!!!Super fun!
 In the right the right the right city..this is pretty cool..
ahh restoration hardware you make my heart go pitter patter....swoon
Happy lighting!
