muah!Saw this little mask at Daiso (local Japanese dollar store) and brought it home with us. It’s kind of strange and we love it, so up near the mantel it went.

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

This week I had some “oh I’m such an awesome mom” moments, and I also had “oh my gosh I don’t deserve my kids because I’m the world suckiest mom!” moments too. That’s motherhood, ain’t it?!

I’m excited because I get to style the Uncommon Goods digital lookbook. I love challenges like these.! They want to see their new items styled in a real-life space, so I, along with another blogger, get to play stylists.

Ben emailed me the new Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen list. After talking with some people about our eating habits, I realized I’m not so great when it comes to breakfasts for my family. We almost always have oatmeal and O’s everyday. I need to figure out how to add in some variety.

So happy Let’s Sew Together is listed as one of the “Best Books of the Month” as picked by Amazon editors. Don’t forget to pre-order!

Check out Kristina’s blog The Self Searchers. She emailed to say hello, shared her blog with me, and I love what she shares on her space, so I thought maybe you would too! The blog world is so different from when I first started, it was friendlier then, and it wasn’t all about making it a business, so if you’re now wanting to join in and engage in the blogging community, it’s much harder. It can seem like the big bloggers stick together and help promote each other, and everyone else seems to get lost in the large sea of blogs. I would love to share about some bloggers that I think are great, but don’t necessarily have a large audience, so expect a link to someone new from time to time.

Cilantro lime shrimp… yes, please!

I seriously need to clean my craft room. It’s pretty bad.

I have this necklace from Burdees, and every time I wear it, I get tons of compliments. It’s a really pretty piece.

Mother’s Day is next weekend and Ben keeps asking me what I want. I told him, pumpkin waffles with whipped cream, my favorite langostino sopes, and Mexican chocolate pie from The Pie Hole. Oh and to do nothing in a clean house. LOL

OH and we’re having a book release party on May 31st at the Oh Hello Friend shop and you are all invited! I will share more info soon and I hope you can make it! Happy weekending! It’s so hot here and we’re going to an ice cream party!

    Oatmeal is so dang good for you/can be an antidepressant 🙂 there’s nothing wrong with a little predictability!

      Really? I didn’t know that! I feel bad that the girls get bored of the same thing everyday. I will throw in pancakes maybe once in the weekend, but not too often. Maybe I should try other cereals.

    I totally agree that the big bloggers stick together and don’t let anyone in their realm if they rent millionare bloggers as well. I agree that the blogging world used to be much friendlier. I started my blog in ’09 and made so many friends. I started up again with a new blog and it’s been difficult to find true friends that aren’t just interested wanting to do giveaways and getting more readers. That’s one of the things I love about your blog. You may be a pretty big and succesful blogger but it’s authentic and your content doesn’t feel staged, rushed or fake. (Like others I’ve been seeing lately.) thank you for wanting to share other bloggers who are new. I’d hope someday you’d do the same for me. Going to Kristina’s blog right now!

    Have a great weekend!
