Friday Favorites

I have been dragging all week because once again, this daylight savings springing forward mess is kicking my butt. And it has not done me any favors on getting Dracen up on time each morning either. That boy is a pill in the early mornings but on early DARK  mornings? Lawd have mercy! The sun is barely rising by the time we leave the house now.  I don't even know how we haven't been late because every morning this week, I've found myself running around screaming, "HURRY UP!  WE'RE GOING TO BE LATE! WE SHOULD ALREADY BE PULLING OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY BY NOW!" There is not enough coffee in all the world to make me a morning person. And that brings me to my first favorite this week...

Is it just me?
I think it's the planet.
Pour me another cup. 

Garden Bunnies
I finally decided against that garden rabbit I 
showed y'all from Ballard Designs a couple of weeks ago.
It was entirely too much money and after reading the reviews,
I determined that it was very lightweight and "not really worth the price". 
I spotted these at Grandin Road and thought they were really cute.

But then I went to TJMaxx Wednesday and
found this one for 14.99! I went to pick it up
to look at the price, expecting it to be lightweight
and nearly pulled my arm out of socket because
this bad boy is HEAVY. I couldn't believe he was
only 14.99 and I didn't see another one in sight so
he went right into my buggy. He's sitting
on the deck now, until I find the perfect spot for him.
Dracen informed me that Brisco and Lucky will
just pee on him. They better not!  But they probably will.

Wise Words
I think we could all stand to follow
this advice a little more often.

Angel in Your Corner
I just thought this was the cutest thing.

Relatable quote
Ha! Happens to me all.the.time.

Sugared Grapefruit Necklace
I ordered this from Ruche a couple of weeks ago.
It is the best spring necklace and just the right size
for a bubble necklace.

Last week we were going to
Italy. This week?
Lake Lucern, Switzerland.
Pack your bags.

Plume Peasant Tee
I love light and airy tops like
this for Spring.

I don't know what it is about
dogs in costume that I find so irresistibly

Jump Around
This morning they played this in the "weekend blast off"
they do each Friday on the morning radio show I listen to.
And then on the way back from taking the boys to school,
I had turned it to the XM 90's channel and it came on there too.
Every time I hear it, I can't help but think of this scene from
Mrs. Doubtfire. 
I love Robin Williams. And Sally Field.
And this song.

Happy St. Patty's Day Weekend,

Pin It


  1. I love your favorites, especially the grapefruit necklace and the quote about talking about our joys. Isn't that so true that we love to go on and on about our the news, who wants to hear good stuff? I do! I love celebrating rather than crying. I hope you have a great weekend.

  2. I'm glad you got an even better bunny than before! You find those dogs hilarious because they ARE, they just ARE!

    I quite like that angel as well.

  3. Oh my gosh! I was just telling 2 if my BFF 's that same thing last night! One if my boys giggles and giggles when I play this song in the way home from school.

    How about a trip to the beach? That's where I am:).

  4. It definitely got harder to get up as the week went on.

    I repinned the pin about joy. I want to be that girl...the one that focuses on the good things rather than complaining!

  5. "Its a drive by fruiting!!!" :) Love that movie.

    I'm up for Switzerland as well. Really... I'm easy, you pick the place.

  6. Pack me in your bag please! I want to go to Switzerland too. The bunny is cute but if I brought it into my house it'd be broken in 10 minutes no matter how heavy and well made it is. *sigh*
