Need a little Inspiration

This morning as I was driving to work, I was holding a full cup of tea because, well, it was too full and kept swishing out into the cupholder. I do this almost every morning. Fill my mug too full (of course I can't take one with a lid. that'd be crazy) and then have to hold it in one hand the whole way to work while driving and shifting etc with the other hand.

But today, unlike every other day, I spazzed out. I was on a perfectly straight stretch of road, and my hand freaked out and dumped the whole cup all over myself and the car. I had to turn around and go home to change. So then I was late to work, and I've been cold and annoyed every since. So I've been reading through my favorite blogs to cheer me up, and I thought I'd share some of the things that have inspired me and brought a smile to my face. Click the links below to read some really beautiful posts.

{The Art of Being Silly} - For some reason these photos made me giggle

chestnut, auburn, sepia, bay - good reasons to love being brunette

A touch of red - I adore red and gray. Kitchen, you may have met your color scheme

Gray and Pink - Another lovely color combo

All you need is Love (Pillows) - For Valentines Day - I love these

The Loveliest Words - More Valentines sappyness


  1. I love reading your blog, Daniella my sister. It makes me happy. You are cute and funny. What are you doing working in QMS? You should be writing a funny column with fashion and decorating tips for some girly magazine. I would buy it!

  2. Aw thank you sister! I'm glad you enjoy it. Its fun to work on something creative for a change - I would love that kind of job, you have no idea. Let's start a magazine! You can write the parts for mom's, we can both write stuff about running a house/organizing, I'll write the decor bits...It will be like Real Simple, only on a way smaller budget, so it really WILL be simple ;)

  3. Haha we can call it "REAL real simple" or maybe "Our 2 cents" We might actually look into starting an e-magazine...they are all the rage and you don't spend so much on printing fees! Aunt Dana has one...we should ask her.

    PS "biledice" just sounds nasty...what is up with the weird words they make you type in to post your commment??

  4. We SHOULD start an e-magazine! That would be perfect! I'll bet Aunt Dana would help us! Aunt Dana? ARE YOU THERE?

    Yeah I think you have to type in those words so that spammers can't put all kinds of crap in your comments without permission. Its the only way to keep spammers away without moderating every single comment.
