[One]: There have been two things on m'brain lately: babies and a home of our own. Purchasing a home is up next on the Laird's Life List. We are barely into the process of it all and it is completely and utterly exhausting! It does not help that I have watched way too many episodes of House Hunters in my day and my list of must-haves is endless. Don't get me wrong chickadees, I wouldn't mind a project revamp here or there but sometimes I feel like there are slim pickin's in this little part of the world. Our perfect house is out there somewhere. Hopefully we will find it sooner rather than later. In the meantime, I can't help but swoon over this adorable home that was featured on Glitter Guide last week. Did you catch it?
[Two]: I personally want to thank all of you lovely people for taking the time to read my blog every week. It has been such a dream to start this blog this past summer and has been better than I could have possibly imagined. I love catching up with many of you through emails, snail mail, and coffee dates. You spread a little cheer my way each and every day and it means more to me than you know! Merci! Gracias! Grazie!
[Three]: This past Tuesday, I did something completely out of my element: I went blonde. Never have I ever been blonde in my lifetime until this week. My hairdresser is nothing short of adorable and I trust him and all of his glorious ideas. We have been chit chatting for a while on my love for Mary Kate Olsen. It's a slight laughing matter with my pals on my desire to be Mary Kate. I just cannot help it. Although my personal style is no where near hers, I completely envy it and her amazing hair. The fact that we are both so tiny doesn't make it any better either. So naturally when my hairdresser suggested we went for a Mary Kate style, of course I said yes, yes, and yes! I couldn't wait to see my new do and when he whipped me around in the chair I squealed like a little lady from the 90's jamming out at a Backstreet Boys concert. I absolutely love it and it makes me feel oh so fancy! It's the bees knees I tell ya!
[Four]: I am thankful for comfy pajamas and days spent inside. This past week I have pretty much kept it under the radar. My phone was dead for most of the time because I am terrible at keeping it charged. I must say, it was rather refreshing, chickadees! I was able to lounge around the house, eat a lot of chocolate, and have a mini Robin Williams marathon [Hook, Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Good Will Hunting to be exact!]. It has been a blessing to have most of my summer off with days to just stay in my pajamas and relax. I will surely miss it once I get back in the swing of things this school year. Ciao, summer! You've been good to me. See you next June!
[Five]: This past Tuesday was my first day back to work. I hate to admit it, but I slightly missed the crazy schedules and lack of sleep. The little ones will take my up most of my time before I know it! I am going to be working in the same district that I worked in last year and will have most of the same kiddos on my caseload! The thought of seeing my kiddos brings a big 'ol smile to my face! I can't wait to see them prance into the door with their cute little backpacks and freshly cut hair next week. This year is going to fly by.
Happy Friday, chickadees! Do you have something snazzy planned for this weekend?
See you back here on Monday!
