{love all}

 The boys love playing "tennis" and I have to admit that I hope they take up my favorite sport one day...

These pics were taken a few weeks ago when the weather was is supposed to only be in the 50's this weekend! Brrrrr. Hoping to get to our town's fall festival this weekend. What are your weekend plans?

{extreme addition} there isn't really anything extreme about what I'm going to share with you today.

Basically, I cleaned my office desk. And I added some new art. That's about as extreme as I get with a space that isn't technically mine. But I do sit in here from 8-5 five days a week so I really should make it more "me" and clutter free, right?

So are you ready for the befores? They are a tad scary.

My desk...

Lots of piles, snacks, miscellaneous crap.

Not to mention the mess on my counter in the background. {We'll tackle that another day}

After a little cleaning and filing...

Ahhhh...much better!

Still a couple piles...

But if I put them all away I would forget what work I need to do! {please tell me I'm not the only one like this}

I even added a few little fall touches...

That's a pumpkin spice candle on my mug that smell.

And while I was at it, I checked out some of the artwork and quotes I had pinned and printed out a few to hang up...

Nothing like a good cup of coffee {decaf that is} to calm the mind. :)

And I replaced this random Eiffel Tower picture...

With a nice quote...

{Mine is rooting for you too}

So there's a little peek into my work space, just a bit more organized and happy. Hope yours is as well!

Happy What I Wore Wednesday!

If you are new to WIWW, it was started by stay-at-home-mom-bloggers, like Lindsey, who wanted some motivation and inspiration to get dressed up every day. While I'm not a SAHM, I do have to get dressed up for work Monday - Friday, and thought this would help me be a bit more creative with my outfit choices.

Let's just say if there were a theme for this past week it would be cardigans! I kinda like them..just a bit...


Purple tee: JC Penney? {this is actually a maternity top which cracks me up because it looks like a normal can see it stretched by a twin baby belly here}
Cardigan: JC Penney
Pants: Gap
Flats: Maurices
Bracelet: Kohl's


Black lace tank: Kohl's
Cardigan: Target
Skirt: Walmart
Tights: Kohl's
Flats: Shoebilee

{enter fall}

 Our entryway got a dose of fall over the weekend...

It makes me smile when I head down the stairs to leave for work in the morning...

I had fun shopping the house and arranging all of my treasures...

Old family photos {still looking for one more}, collected milk glass, an assortment of fall colored goodies, and my hand knitted garland. Oh...and don't forget my favorite owl lamp, plus an extra little friend...

And I think these ledges were made just for little pumpkins...

Ahhh if only fall was 6 months out of the year. :)

{a really good day}

This cushie for the tushie finally saw some action today...

Both our boys finally peed on the potty.

And I cried.

I cried over pee.

This is the really awesome stuff about parenting. :)

And in other news I tried my hand at a new felt flower today...

I think they'll be going on a yarn wreath.

And the hubby started refinishing our dining room table...exciting stuff.  Hope your Saturday was just as excitingly eventful!

{love list}

 My case of the Mondays finally lifted just in time for Friday. To celebrate how about a little love list?

1. My trench coat...

The temp this morning on my way to work was a chilly 48 degrees! Normally this would annoy me but I love my trench coat {from Kohl's} so I was more than happy to pull it out of the closet.

2. Skype...

Some of my best internet friends are together in Florida right now for a little vacation and we skyped last night. Made me almost feel like I was there with them. {that's me all blown out on the screen} Technology is pretty awesome.

3. New coffee stuff...

I got this new cup at Walmart last week and it makes me smile. Love the design on the wrap.

And this coffee from Target is sooo yummy.

 4. New hats in my shop...

OK...this is just shameless self promotion, but I absolutely love this new color. It just screams fall to me...and the yarn is super soft. I kinda sorta wish I had a baby to put it on. But then I remember I have two crazy three year olds and decide it would be better for someone else's baby. ;)

5. This key rack and mail holder from Pig & Fish on Etsy...

We desperately need something in our entryway to corral our mail and keys. This is a tad out of my budget but a girl can dream, right?

I'm so glad I'm out of the funk I had been in all week, and SO happy that it is almost the weekend! What are you loving this week?
