Some pictures from this quiet, rainy afternoon:
I saw this adorable customizable monogram from The Wedding Chicks on Sometimes Sweet this morning and IMMEDIATELY knew I needed one. I want to put it up in my bedroom (is that cheesy? yes, but I don’t care) but the colours were wrong so I tweaked it a little, and then printed it out on some nice paper I tore out of a sketchbook and trimmed to size.
Yesterday I FINALLY set up my new computer. It’s a little different that my old one and it’s taking some getting used to, but so far I love it. The real question is how long can I keep my desk clean? (The answer: probably not long)
This purple-on-purple banner is getting ready for a wedding in Los Angeles next month. My motto these days is basically “Always Be Ombre-ing!”
Teeny-tiny stickers covered in teeny-tiny bunting.
Dougal and Georgie are still bffs. I love when they snuggle.
Sym had the day off school and spent most of it holed up in her room colouring. She was supposed to have her friend Ali over to play but she had an audition (you might have seen Ali in last Friday’s Fringe episode. Hint: she was the only kid).
Sym wanted me to post a picture of her Valentine’s Day manicure to show the colours she chose- normally I’d save this for Monday but I’m too happy about the fact that she stopped biting her nails! We actually had to trim and file them last weekend because they were too long! I’m really proud of her for breaking the habit.
She got this inflatable paper frog in a Kinder Egg, it’s so odd!
These paper palm trees were leftover from Sym’s Luau birthday in 2008, but I recently unearthed them and put them up in the nap room.
Last summer the housepainters stomped all my plants to death, but the remains of my hydrangea somehow survived and it’s putting out little leaves! There’s hope for my garden yet.

I had a kinder egg advent calendar in december (why yes, I am in fact a child) and got one of those inflatable animals, but i thought it was so awesome, haha, you could just deflate it and inflate it again (I’m also amused by the simplest things).
But then my cats got hold of it.
Yeah I told her to keep it far, far away from the dogs & cat.
That frog looks so cute. lol
I just watched that Fringe episode tonight! Such a ridiculously good show.
I know, Ali was here last week and I was like FRINGE IS MY FAVOURITE SHOW SO YOU BETTER BE GOOD AT ACTING OR I’M NOT LETTING YOU COME OVER TO PLAY ANYMORE.
LOL! Fortunately for her and Sym, she was pretty good! That scream was quite impressive.
I just asked her if she actually saw that two-face man on the bus and she was like YES IT WAS KIND OF FREAKY. And apparently on the first day of filming Joshua Jackson introduced himself and apologized for all the nightmares she was about to have.
LOL I GET ALL MY CELEB STORIES FROM A 9-YEAR-OLD.
Yikes, I would’ve freaked out if I saw that two-faced man in real life. That was just super creepy!
