For the month of November, I'll be supporting my husband in his growth of a 'stache. He is participating in Movember and growing a mustache to raise awareness for and support prostate cancer research. Don't worry, I'll keep everyone up to date on his mo, beginning Movember 1st. Oh, and go here if you'd like to donate to the cause or to join our team. :)

happy fall.

i sometimes plan too much. i had a great craft project for madelynn to do today, but she insisted on making a hat. a "happy fall" hat. so i spontaneously folded a paper hat for her, but was completely puzzled as to what to do in order to make it be a "happy fall" hat. that's where she took over. she knew exactly what she wanted and did not hesitate to shove me out of the way and glue, glue, glue. turned out pretty original. and cute, too. :)

where has this been all my life?!

my only experience with wallpaper was in second grade. my teacher had a stash of tacky wallpaper samples we were allowed to cut up and glue to things for arts and crafts. also, whenever i see wallpaper on tv, it is usually on those home makeover shows where people are painstakingly and usually unsuccessfully trying to shred it off their walls. however, laying in bed tonight, i found i couldn't sleep because visions of wallpaper were dancing around in my head. i really want to make my kid's framed silhouette pictures backed with pretty wallpaper. weird? maybe. but i think it will be cute. so, here i am, online WAY too late looking at wallpaper designs. and here. is. what. i see. i think i am falling in love. aren't all those designs too cute for words? i see them fitting into a nursery in the future house of my dreams--i raise my kids peter pan style, all shoved in one room. call it a nursery. it sounds better than "all shoved in one room."

alright. now you all see my new obsession. don't judge me. i'm going to bed. :)
