Found Around Town: Leaf Imprints

We found these beautiful leaf prints from leaves that had dropped on freshly poured concrete and then eventually deteriorated. Aren't they just beautiful?

Tea Date!

Isn't this little piece so cute? I found it in one of the shops we visited when we had tea. It's just a bookcase on top of an "IKEA-esque" table with particle board nailed to the front and back legs, that had been jigsaw cut into a really cute shape. Adorable!

Tea with my little princess. She's smiling even though she wasn't really feeling well. Such a sweet girl I'm blessed with.

This little tea room has the most amazing homemade scones, and delicious tea.

Cutie Pie! I love this kid! She's so much fun.

I think she looks so cute with her tiny teacup and little side pony tail.

Have a fantastic day!

Make Up Contouring

Today I decided to try some of the make up contouring I've been seeing all over lately. It really does work! I've been feeling like something of a "frump muffin" (a new phrase to describe frumpiness (<-----Is that even a word?) that my oldest daughter coined) and I decided that I was going to do my make up in a more dramatic way and break out my cutest heeled boots today. I think my mission was successful. Sometimes, it feels good to dress up even when you don't have anything special planned. I just feel more in charge today.

Here is the link to the  picture tutorial I used:

Such Blessings

My girlies.


This one love to climb!

Being outside makes us Happy!

She has such beautiful eyes!
Sometimes I just can't believe how blessed I am.
With this remodel going on, and my house in CONSTANT chaos, I have found that I am very easily distracted from the things that matter most in life.
These beautiful girls of mine are a reminder that life is beautiful, fragile, and wonderful if you look around and count your blessings instead of your problems.

The inside was almost as pretty as the outside.

She just loves her friend!

Of course, Katy HAD to get in on the waterslide action!
