I bought one for my master bath and it made taking showers dreamy. It was a white one like in the picture. Today I bought another one for the kids bathroom, it has a couple stripes of the color blue around the inside edges. I seriously love them. They make me happy every time I see them. I think it's just because they are round, and round things seem more fancy...I was obsessed with round cribs for a while, but they are so incredibly expensive I never could justify it, so we have a boring square crib for the boys. The round rugs are making up for it.
It's the little things people.
...ps. The rugs pictured are not mine, but just like them. Showing a picture of mine would require me getting up, taking a picture, uploading said picture and well, that was just too many steps for me tonight. So a quick google image search and vwala. Here we are.

Oh heavens, I just love the fall.
Yesterday was probably my worst day parenting ever. I have lots of good excuses, but it doesn't make it feel any better. I am thankful for "new mercies every morning" and forgiveness. Today I will find peace and move forward, even though most of my circumstances are the same as yesterday. I love my kids and I know that we all have bad days, but mommy guilt is strong when it's mommy having the bad day.
On another note, my mouth is slowly healing. I have lost a bit of weight this week and plan to keep the scale going downward in the months to come. It was a nice re-jump start to the baby weight-loss plan that had been placed on the back burner for a while there.
Happy Weekend friends.

Check out Judah's face...mine was worse.
I was relieved to climb back down.
I had that tingly feeling all through my body...also known as fear.

Judah is talking non-stop to his daddy about every tiny little thing he can think of.
Lance just made pancakes and keeps saying "uh-huh" and "yeah" to whatever the little chatterbox says, he has agreed to many things today...not sure if he knows what ;)
Lucas is in the play pen with some race cars...and in his normal fashion throwing things out of the play pen to see how far and how loud they drop.
There is music playing and the smell of pancakes through my house...I'm not allowed to eat this morning so living on the smell.
Time to get moving, having some friends watch my boys today and need to get them dressed and mobilized for fun!
What are YOU doing right now? :) Happy Monday friends!

Grammy and Judah spent lots of time this week putting these leave decals on the
windows...it was a labor of love.
We always love to visit Whole Foods for lunch when grammy's in town,
we took advantage of their awesome pumpkin display for a few photos.
I hate these carts, but the boys love them and Grammy and daddy were happy to push them, so we got one for our shopping adventure.
I was pretty happy that we got these trays to put my spices in, I feel so organized.
Judah had school on Thursday...they made family pictures for the family tree!
Judah was really proud of his family (to the left of his head)...I love Judah!
We spent some time at the library with Grammy. She's a great reader!
Lucas loves to look through books, it's fun.
We had lots of snuggles that night before bed...love my snuggly boys.
Judah set up a restaurant for his lunch the next day...he ordered all sorts of things off of his menu.
We had a really fun dance party as "I got you babe" blasted in my bedroom.
It was one of those moments I couldn't help but feel blessed beyond measure.
I really love my kids.
Grammy did a few sewing projects while she was in town, including some great curtains I haven't taken a pic of yet...and the best part...the Magic Cape she made Judah! He was in heaven!
One of our last days with Grammy, we went to a pumpkin patch...it was so much fun it deserves its own post...clearly it was fun enough to wear out the baby!
