What's Catching My Eye

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Happy Tuesday! Have we gone over how Tuesday is the most universally hated day of the week? I've always agreed with that. was your weekend? Ours was really nice. Pizza and birthday cake for my big brother (is it weird to still call him my "big brother" now that we're in our thirties? But he is!) on Saturday, and Sunday was spent in pajamas stripping the house of holiday decor. I thought I'd feel more sad than I do -- in fact, I feel a sense of relief to have things clean and cleared out. Our family room looks about 5 times bigger and brighter!

I'm sure this has happened to you: You're surfing the Internet, flipping through a magazine, reading a book, or watching something on TV, and you come across something that catches your eye for whatever reason. Maybe it's a video clip that makes you laugh, an excerpt that immediately speaks to you, or a unique wardrobe addition. Happens to me all the time, and though I usually mentally bookmark these things, over time it's easy to forget about them. That's why I thought I'd document them here for myself and for you, in case you're interested. :) Let's get started, shall we?

+ I've shared my love for motivational/inspirational/fun/thought-provoking quotes here before. But a few days ago I was looking through a book and found this one. I think I actually whispered "Wow." It immediately resonated with me. Maybe it will for you too.

+ By now, you all have probably heard of or watched Oprah's recent acceptance speech. If you haven't, check it out in written form here

+ I have had the itch to organize the play room (surprise, surprise... more organizing) lately and really want to get one of these. While browsing, I came across these seagrass baskets (sold as a pair -- and there is also this one for only $15!) and then came across this ridiculously adorable rug ($19!) separately. How cute would all of this be together? It doesn't work for our current play room but someone please get them.

+ These d'orsay flats are kind of cool, don't you think? I like the blue color for winter to spring transition. Target for the win, always.

Well, that's it for now. Off to make paper snowflakes with my big girl while the little one finishes up her nap. Then later it's a hair cut for C, some cleaning, and writing press releases until I can't keep my eyes open anymore. Have a great day!


  1. I love those shoes. I have wanted a similar pair for a couple of months now.

    1. Aren’t they cute?! I think we could rock them. ;)
