This very moment. . .

This sunny day has all of a sudden turned gray. It has me aching to crawl into my bed, put on a pair of spripey socks + watch You've Got Mail.

All three boys need haircuts bad. Like, their hair is growing over their ears and down their necks- bad.

After reading through all of your helpful comments on how to make a pie crust (you guys are the best!), I'm feeling motivated. Maybe this weekend I'll give it another shot?

I'm wearing a new favorite nail color. It's called "Tangerine" by Essie. You sort of need to own it. It looks great with a powder blue top and khaki pants. Trust me.

Happy mother's day to all of you mothers, hopeful mothers and mothers at heart. I love you. And if you + I were neighbors I'd show up at your door with a little treat. Probably chocolate. Because you deserve it.

    And on another note, I can't wait to read the pie crust comments- I have the same problem!

  2. Ooh, I think I will go snag that nail color. It looks like a great color!
