a day at the zoo

happy tuesday everyone:) thank you to everyone that has responded about the silent auction on thursday!! i feel such a strong need to help Nie and her family in whatever teeny eeny way i can!! i'll also be contributing some items to the Etsy NieNie Benefit Sale Shop ...for a sale on September 23 and 24.

So, how were your weekends?! as planned, we enjoyed our weekend with mr. noodle and little lou. saturday was a "clean up the yard" day. little bit (okay, maybe alot) of whining about heat and no fun and who drank all the lemonade...but the backyard looked quite lovely after all was said and done:) i even saw a hummingbird buzzing about my fuchsia plant. can we talk about HOW excited i was!? what an amazing teeny miracle of a bird. i wanted him to stay all day!!! speaking of backyard friends...we've also seen baby bunnies, big bunnies, a huge hawk walking around (probably looking for those sweet bunnies) and chipmunks. Jake is in heaven. if only there were bunches of frogs...

sunday, we went to the Brookfield Zoo . it was FABULOUS! tons of animals and so much to do! the boys loved it to pieces.







i wanted to take that little monkey home with me. he could share a room with the boys...right?? speaking of the noodle and lou room...here are some peeks at their new digs:) (click on the photos to see them ginormous)






i hung some shutters on either sides of the windows to make it a bit cozier. also framed a grouping of their artwork...so cute. yay for something being finished!!! the boys' space was a priority so that they could feel settled and be excited for a new room:) jake has been feeling a tiny bit better about school. each day will get better. i'm proud of him for trying!


See you guys right here on thursday! i hope it will be a huge success:):):)

I am so glad that Jake is feeling better at school and that you had such a great weekend. Love the pictures of the boys room I'm sure they are loving it. I also can't wait to see more pictures of the house. Have a great night.

Hi Jenn! It's Janel. Thank you for sharing the tragic event with the Nielson Family, or StephaNIE NIElson. I have not been able to stop thinking about her! Or her husband. They both sound like an amazing couple! Saying lot's of prayers and thinking healing thoughts. Hoping to see you here Thursday sometime!

I'm glad to hear you are getting settled in and especially happy to hear Jake is adjusting to school. I'm glad you had fun this weekend. Your hummingbird sounded lovely!

WOW thanks for sharing you pictures.. I have to say your room look impecable (spelling).. I would be ashamed for anyone to look at any of my rooms.. I am glad that you all are getting comfortable with your surroundings that is so important and Jake will definately start feeling better when he finds out how much he loves his new surroundings! Keep on smiling..

Hi Karen! The bedding is from Ikea! Aren't they so cute:):) And SO cheap...yippeeee for that!!!

They don't have sheets in that pattern...just the duvets and it comes with a pillowcase and I think a green sheet.
