happy birthdy mookie!

Did you know today is pretty special? It is national talk like a pirate day! Aaaaarrrggghh matey, shiver me timbers! Not only that, but it is also my stepmom's birthday whom we affectionately call Mookie.

Mookie is the very best "other-mother" a girl could ask for. My two sisters and I are so very lucky to have her in our lives. She is creative, hard working, and one of the most generous people I have ever met. She is all at once a big sister I never had, a great friend who always listens and gives sound advice, and a mother who is always there with unconditional love. We really lucked out when she joined our family. She and my Dad are a great pair and bring out a side of each other that is very special. Mookie introduced our family to some new traditions regarding eating dinner and a fun pickle game around Christmas.... yum, pickles :)

Wishing you a very happy birthday and hope you have great year! Love you lots and lots.

i may need a change...

.... in the form of a new hairstyle! I always do this, I cut my hair only to hate it and then to grow it out till it is way too long. I want something fresh and stylish. Right now my hair is super duper long. When I take the time to curl and style it looks nice, but I don't always have the time. I recently came across a fun blog and love all of the great hair inspiration. I am loving this style and just may be making a change:)

Check out It's The Small Things for more drool worthy hair ideas and crafty inspiration. I am thinking about making her DIY coasters, they are so fun!
