The skull-embellished jeans was from Wal-Mart which I bought last year. It was still too big for her so it sat in her closet until this past Monday. The length is still long though so I just capped it.
I bought another tee like this in purple($5.99) which is Emma’s favorite color. I love them because they’re light and is perfect for this end of summer heat we’re having, plus the colors are just so vibrant which Emma happens to love.
Just chill for a little bit. Stop rolling your eyes. Oh she’s sharing too much, blah blah blah. There are a lot of lists out there telling us how to make your marriage last. How to keep the fire burning, the 5/10/12/25 important things married couples should do, so on and so forth. I would never pretend to be any of these experts through profession, years in college, or years of marriage experience but let’s just say my husband and I have been married for 18 years. We got married young. We’ve had our own problems and through it all we’ve made a decision that this is us, truly for better or for worse. Oh we still fight alright. THAT keeps the fire burning. Well, one of them anyway, HAH! My point is we can all follow the lists or whatever is working for any of us to keep our respective marriages intact, I hope one of those things is being mushy with one another. Oh posh, mushy is for teenagers. Well, sometimes it helps to remember that before everything else we were all “young” ones too. Never lose that part of your journey.
If you want to cuddle then by all means do so. If you want to text your spouse how nice the cuddling was, please do it. A simple text would make an otherwise stressful day so much better. A sweet simple text, whatever the situation may be, could change how a day will go by in an instant. It’s OK to be mushy amidst all the bills, chores, back-to-school preparations, work stress, news, politics, etc. Seriously, it’s OK ♥.
Emma Lyn is 9 years old today. Ahhh, time flies. I could fill this up with anecdotes and how much I can’t believe she’s 9 and how I wish she’d stay little and so on and so forth but going all emotional will probably turn my eyes and face red swollen all day so I’ll just share the pictures from her birthday party last Sunday.
Seriously, this HEAT has been such an annoying factor this summer. I mean of course it’s hot around this time of year but this particular heat is just so unbearable. I can’t even yell at my children to play outside because I myself don’t want to be outside. The bottom line is, it’s just too hot. We can’t even go back to the beach because of the sudden shark attacks. It’s like, one thing on top of this damn heatwave.
I was telling my sister-in-law yesterday that we can’t even enjoy the pretty patio set that we have in our deck. It’s either too HOT to sit outside or I’m running in and out of the house to put the chair cushions inside the house when it’s raining at night. I admit, I’ve just let the rain pour and not even bothered with the cushions a few times. It turns out we are just so done with this weather. We wish it’s Fall already. Maybe we’ll get that nice Fall breeze. We can finally enjoy the patio set. Me with my wine and my husband with whatever he is drinking at the moment, while the kids run around the yard.
This Forever21 Raglan-sleeved Striped Dress($19.90) would sure look nice with the Fall weather and Fall boots, no? I just bought a new pair of Fall boots so I’m looking forward to wearing it with my Fall dresses. If I can’t enjoy this summer, by golly I will enjoy Fall.
PS: Yes I know there are far worse things than weather blah blah blah.
One of dreams that I want to have for the mini-library in the family room, aside from wall-to-wall books of course, is to have a sitting area where I could actually lounge on while reading a book. I have been wishing and hoping that I’d spot a chaise lounge on the side of the road so I can yell at my husband to stop the car and put that chaise lounge in the trunk. Yes I have a vivid imagination when it comes to spotting free stuff, HAHA. Talk about a nice story to put as a caption on an Instagram picture. BUT, knowing my luck, that’s not going to happen anytime soon, or ever at all. So, I’m waiting patiently to be able to afford a really nice chaise lounge someday. Hopefully I’ll see an affordable one at a Good Will or Thrift store or a garage sale one of these days.
In the meantime, I’m drooling over these chaise lounge chairs from Target. I wouldn’t mind having one of these in the library.
PS: The picture of mini-library above was back in March. I’ve since moved that desk to the office and replaced it with a small shelf with more books and the vintage typewriter. When I finally find a chaise that’s where I’ll put it, with an end table on the left side and coffee table in front of the big shelves. An area rug is in my plans too by the way. But yeah, wouldn’t a chaise lounge look great in this library area? I need to win the lotto soon. TOUCHE’

This week’s #HomesFullOfHeart theme is #tables. This dining table was a surprise gift from the Hubby early last year. When we were at the furniture store I spotted this dining set as well but the store didn’t want to lower the price. Anyway, we left the furniture store coz the kids had something to do that day and Hubby was gonna go back by himself with the truck. He came home with the new bed and this Dining Set coz “you really wanted it” ️️️. It extends to seat 10 people . PS: We gave our old dining table for free to the first person who replied to our ad
