Painting Your Front Door

Don't you love this orange door?  I desperately need to paint my front door but can't decide on a color.  I'm not sure I'm brave enough to commit to orange.  Are you?  What are some of your favorite front door colors?

The Perfect Fall Top

Last night I went out with my girlfriends to dinner and literally had nothing to wear.  Something happens with the change of seasons and my clothes magically disappear from my closet.  Happen to you too?

I decided I slowly need to update my wardrobe with affordable but timeless pieces.  Luckily JCrew Factory is having a 30% off sale with the code THIRTY right now, woohoo!  

I found this fun, dark navy blouse here.  It's the perfect solution to your next fall date or girls night out!

School Days Poem - You'll love it!

by Shel Silverstein

"I cannot go to school today,"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I'm going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I've counted sixteen chicken pox
And there's one more - that's seventeen,
And don't you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue-
It might be instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I'm sure that my left leg is broke-
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button's caving in,
My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained,
My 'pendix pains each time it rains.
My nose is cold, my toes are numb,
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my spine is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There is a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is - what?
What's that?  What's that you say?
You say today is...Saturday?
G'bye, I'm going out to play!"

Hope you have a happy Saturday!

Introducing BabyLit

Love classic literature?  Me too!  I recently came across the brand, BabyLit, which sells classic literary titles condensed into kid friendly books along with witty and fun literary themed totes, buttons, dolls and prints.

Check out their selection here and share your faves!  

I'm definitely picking up this tote for my mom - she's obsessed with Pride and Prejudice.  And how cute are these prints?
