Life Lately with some Links to love.

Life lately with Miss R has been changing. What I mean is…. she’s turning into a kid! A human. She listens sometimes listens when I ask her to do something…. I can cross the street holding her hand while she walks (we used to have to carry her since she would run into the street)… she puts things back at stores (with some hesitation) when I tell her we can’t take it home… She sits at the table and eats her treat. Says thank you! She still doesn’t like to share…. especially that cinnamon roll. But, I wouldn’t want to share that either. Hee. She always says, “Bye, thank you! Have a nice day!” to most everyone we meet. She’s just growing! So fast. And, it doesn’t make me sad. I’m so happy to be here witnessing it! I love it. I love her curiosity. She’s a sweetie. 

On to some links I’ve been collecting for you guys this week!!!

I talk about truly loving what you do…. over at Just Lovely Things!

A letter to dead beat dads.

Stop it stop it stop it! This little handmade shop is full of too much adorable!!!

I’m definitely a brooch kinda girl. I love them. And, I’ll even wear them on a t-shirt (I’m neat-o). I usually wear vintage/antique pieces….. but, I do LOVE this little wooden brooch. A lot.

Cool! CMYK Easter eggs!

Have you seen the knotted bedding at Anthropologie? The bedding there is just a bit a lot out of my price range…. So, I love this little knotted bed tutorial! I think even I could do it!

I love this sweet drawing of a daddy and his daughter. She’s a talented lady.

A little thank you to these lovely lovely people that are helping to support my trip to BlogHer…. Thanks to you, you, and you!

For the adults on St. Patty’s…. a little drink.

And, this little St. Patty’s Day lunch is adorable for the kiddos.

So, Ashley from the Shine Project is doing a very cool Pay It Forward project. I read about Spread the Shine here on Karly’s blog. Go check it out. I bought my cards. 10 for $2.50 and the $ goes to the Shine Project. <3 Off to spread the love.

P.S. I have no idea what’s the deal with the Google Friend Connect… but, I think it’s supposed to be ending for non-blogger blogs. Just in case you still want to keep up with the bloggy blog…. you can follow my rss feed here.

Happy happy Friday to you all! Enjoy your weekend!!!

    The fun part is as their vocabulary grows, the more you get to hear what is in their heads and it's usually pretty entertaining. Of course, they become opinionated VERY quickly and they like to insist they can do it all on their own

      Ha! Yes. She already is creating stories and songs. I'm excited to see how crazy they get!

    I love brooches too! I have a good dozen that were given to me from my grandmothers, they're one of my most prized possessions. 🙂

  • Crystalyn on said:

    Thanks for including me in your links! That is my favorite drawing 🙂

    Isn't that transition from toddler to kid so much fun?! My favorite part is being able to have conversations with my 3 year old, she always says the funniest things. Ruari is just too cute, I loved her vlog!

    • The Paper Mama on said:

      It's a very sweet drawing. And, Ruari is such a silly girl. 🙂
