What's on my mind...

{1} Have you heard of Kelly McCaleb? She has a lovely little blog called "My Happy Little Life" and a lovely Etsy shop as well. Check it out. On Monday, Kelly mentioned that her sister had started a hair blog. Not having ever been to a hair blog, I was quite intrigued. Kelly's sister's name is Nicole a.k.a. Coco, and the name of the hair blog is Hot Coco. Love that! {I was actually contemplating changing Audrey's name to Nicole so we could call her Coco. Not really, but I would love to see a little girl named Coco.} Since I am cutting my hair TODAY this blog has come into my life at the perfect time. Nicole's blog is a mix of her favorite celeb hair styles, links to her sources of beauty stuff, and tips on styling and skin care.
Hair is on my mind.

{2} Christmas is right around the corner. I have been planning my card design, choosing the color scheme, finding great new supply sources, and definitely obsessing way too much. I love Christmas cards. I love making them, sending them, and of course receiving them. I think of my Christmas cards as a little heartfelt gift sent to all the people I love. That's why I put so much thought into them. They are a small gift and I love them to be just right.

Christmas cards are on my mind.

{3} Owen is still adjusting to life with a new baby. I need some help. I'm calling in reinforcements.

Nanny 911 is on my mind.

{4} I have been working on a mobile to hang above Audrey's crib. There is sewing involved. Owen and sewing do not mix. Hence, we are on day 4 of the mobile project.

Sewing is on my mind.

What's on your mind?


  1. You are on my mind! How do you find time to do all this stuff and then write it all up in a great blog!!

    I'm heading to Hot Coco now!

  2. I love coco's hair blog too, I can't wait to see what you do with your hair. Can't wait.

    I feel EXACTLY the same way as you do about my cards. As much time and money as I put into them, I always hope that the recipients appreciate them, and treat them as they would any gift, and not just throw them away.

    Projects are on my mind, I need to make a few sets of coasters, and some card packs. I need more time to do those. Time is on my mind.

  3. I'm excited to see what your new hairstyle will be. Are you changing up the color, cutting your hair shorter or both?

    I love getting your Christmas cards. I also love giving and receiving Christmas cards. It's one of the things that make the Christmas season for me.

    My mind is on moving and buying Christmas presents ( I want to be done by December), and catching up on all the things I'm currently behind on.

  4. I too cannot wait to see your new 'do! I know it will be gorgeous as always.

    I also love to receive your Christmas cards. They are ALWAYS beautiful.

    The fun of a 3 year old and a new baby. It will get better.

    On my mind today...laundry, and our upcoming family pictures. Yep, we're finally having a new family picture taken next week!

  5. I'm thinking about how I need to work on my Christmas cards too! I need to choose the right family picture, and get it going! I'm also thinking about laundry, my book, and my nap that I will take in a few hours!

  6. I'm thinking about lots of things!Where do I start. My brain goes a mile a minute. I'm thinking mostly about all of the activities in the next few days. I don't think I could pack one more thing in! There are not enough hours in the day.

  7. i'm thinking about the ability my body has to actually get BIGGER and that one day in about 7 weeks, i'll physically feel better though mentally......
    i'm thinking about the date abe and i are going on tonight and how excited i am to get out of here. no offence to my wee ones.
    i'm thinking about the brownies that are cooling on my stove top (speaking about getting bigger).
    i'm thinking about getting my kids picture taken with santa. one of my favorite traditions we've done every year.

  8. Katie told me to look at your blog about a week ago, and now I find myself looking at it every day! You have a cute family and some cute ideas. Also I really like the blog "My Happy Little Life" there are a ton of good links on her page! So thanks for the tip.
    P.S. you probably have no clue who this is! This is Meghan Robles (Gray) Katie's little sister.
