this and that + some videos

::  I snagged some new throw pillows for my family room couch at Pier 1 (including this, this and this.  I'll take pictures, eventually...).  I'm loving them!  I've been hating my family room, and feel like the walls were making everything look drab, but the pillows instantly made the room feel brighter and cheerier.  I think if I can incorporate a little more turquoise and teal into the room, plus a little white, that I won't hate it so much anymore.  I would LOVE to find some curtains like these...


::  I need to figure out a good carry on bag for traveling.  It has to be able to do a bajillion things, like function as a diaper bag, purse, laptop bag and camera bag all in one.  Any suggestions?  Oh, and it can't be too hard to carry because of course I'll be juggling a toddler as well.  Thanks for your help :o).

::  If I need a little pick me up, I generally just go stare at all my pins.  Sounds silly, but so many things I like in one place, it makes me happy.  Especially my decorate and celebrate boards.  Oh pinterest.  How do I love you?  Let me count the ways...

::  The other night I yelled for Christopher while in Ryann's room.  I can't remember what I needed, but nonetheless I yelled for him.  Yesterday my mom was hanging out with us, when I went to put Ryann down for her nap I decided I wanted her sweater because she was itching a bug bite like mad, so I yelled for her.  Ryann looked at me and yelled "Christopher!  Christopher!"  I died laughing.

::  Video dump time!  I'm sure mostly just the grandmas and great grandmas will appreciate these, but whatever.  Here you go.

Ok, generally, we don't listen to Kid Rock with Ryann.  But this is pretty funny.  It was mostly for my friend Kenzie, but I think it can be appreciated by many.


Don't you love that kids generally don't want to cooperate when you bust out the video camera?  Good news, I still think she is cute.  And apparently Donald is a number.


More or less Christopher was standing in the hallway and would jump into her room.  I just love her laugh so I had to share :o).


And lastly, we were trying to show off her ABC singing skills.  She gets pretty close to making it the whole way through.


::  I've got a batch of chili started in the crockpot this morning.  If it turns out well maybe I'll actually share the recipe.  Have a great day!

Haa!! She is hilarious! I love the rock out, and her laugh! Also, when I think of you yelling Christopher, it just makes me think of the Sopranos and the Christopher on that show :)

Love the videos - very cute!

And I'm now following you on pinterest :) I love looking through my pins on there too, even when I know I'll never do so many of the crafty things.
