An Adorable Etsy Shop

My friend, Stephanie, just opened up this adorable Etsy shop, Paislee Lane

If I had little girls, I would dress them up in lovely things like


or this

I like that they are simple, and not too big. And I love the colors of fabric she uses.

Go check out Paislee Lane.

You can thank me later. :)

I spent yesterday at the science center with the boys. It was a glorious, fun filled day with no agenda. (I love those days!)

When I was driving home in the city, I decided to pass by the school where my hubby did his graduate studies. It's only been two years, since we finished the student life phase. I was feeling a little nostalgia as I drove by.

Then I had to stop at a red light.

I looked over to see a mother in mom jeans holding a map, waiting to cross the street with barely-at-the-tale-end-of-the-teenage-years son standing a few steps in front of her holding a bag from the campus bookstore, trying to look cool.

Is it possible to look cool when you're on campus for the first time with your mother holding a map? I can't wait to do that to my sons!

Then I noticed the car stopped in front of me. In the back seat was a father sitting next to a newborn baby, with his wife in the front seat driving. Instantly my mind wandered back to the first years of graduate life, with our new little baby and the many, many times I drove our only car to pick up and drop off my hubby at school.

Life really does change fast.

I'm glad for the memories I have of the good times and the hard times.

p.s. I sure hope I can find a good pair of mom jeans when my boys get to the college age. :) Looking forward to that.

My Interview

Wow, my first interview about the shop! Rachel Krech from contacted me about doing an interview about Simple Serendipity. I was happy to talk about myself. That's something I do well.

Wanna learn more?

Here's the link to it: Simple Serendipity

I have to say that I was a little bummed that the picture of my jewelry on her site was halfway cut off. Bummer. Oh well, the top half looked cute. :)

Beach Glass

We've been collecting kryptonite at our house. I guess it's what you do when you live close to a lake. The boys were most stoked about the tiny blue shards and little yellow one. I was most excited about the pale pink one.

I've got my mind thinking about what to do with all this glass. We'll have to see what I come up with.

In the mean time, this week I'll be having another giveaway.

Check out My Give Away Today on Friday for a chance to win one of two $15 dollar gift certificates to the shop.
