Monday Sun-Day

Yes, it was sunny today.
No comment.


After work, I was invited to a family BBQ.
It was not even my family.

Sophie's home and her family was celebrating. And seeing I just love that girl, I joined them in eating steak and broccoli.

I dined and dashed because I had plans.
Plans that involved cheesecake and Paris at Midnight:

Have you ever been to After Thoughts in Abby? You simply must go.
I had the last piece of Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake and it was divine.
Andrea had the Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake and she seemed to enjoy it too.

Know what I loved about today?
The way it all fit together.
Here. Let me 'splain...

Whilst visiting with Shelly and her younger siblings I suggested that the 'golden years' of parenting are between those years when your oldest child is no more than 14 and your youngest child is at least 4. Perfect parenting years. They are so fun. No one is napping. No one has an outside job with a boss dictating schedules. No diapers. Everyone is sleeping through the night. No one is driving.

Shelly agreed with me. We both sat there, reminiscing about those good ol days.

Later, when I picked up Andrea, I mentioned to her that she's at that perfect point. Her youngest is starting kindergarten. She's got fabulous years of family fun ahead of her. "These are the golden years," I predicted.

And THEN? At the movie tonight? IT WAS ALL ABOUT 'GOLDEN YEARS'... And man's longing to return to the golden age.


I love it when evenings end all wrapped up in red bows.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Pinterest.com is working again. Or at least it is for me. (Got quite a few messages saying that it was down today.) Keep trying, people. Don't leave me out here, all addicted by myself.

Henna'd cakes. LOVE the lacey look.

Add a marble to make heart shaped cupcakes.
Oh my goodness, how easy is this?

White henna? Oh. So cool.

I adore this. Really.
Do you think it's just rolled up strips of paper?

How hard could it be?

Great idea, no?

Another idea to keep your twine from tangling.
I personally, don't have this problem, as I don't have twine.
But I love the idea:

Is this not the cutest thing ever?


The second thing I'm thankful for today?

I live with someone who doesn't care if the dishes aren't done. And whoa. These dishes have not been done for awhile. I've just been busy, yo.

And the third thing?


One last thing:

I'm ready for Afterthoughts and a brioche anytime. I can't even remember when the last time was that I went there.
