me : weekly loves

Hi ya'll! It's been a while since I've done a weekly loves post so I thought it was time for one. :) 

I love Christmas!!! And I LOVE my Christmas tree. Yes, this is my Christmas tree. Its been up for over a week now. Our Christmas tradition (well, I do it and Joey just goes along with it) is to put our tree up after Halloween. I like to have my fall stuff up for September and October and my Christmas stuff up for November and December. I feel that's the way I can really enjoy all of my decorations. :)

I love handmade Christmas gifts. I did these two paintings this past weekend. They are for my niece who LOVES plays, performing, Broadway, etc. My BIL and SIL are redoing her room in a Broadway theme so I made these for her to go in her newly made over room. I'm just hoping she never reads my blog or else the secret is out. But I hope she loves them.  

I love Barnes & Noble. Even though Joey calls it Barnes & NobleS which seriously annoys me!!! Anyway, yesterday, after dropping off BB for his weekly visitation (which I HATE) I went to B&N and just wandered around, taking in the sights and smells and sounds. I love this place. It always makes me think of Fox Books from You've Got Mail, which makes me insanely happy because I love that movie so much. B&N = happiness. Completely. 

I love Pinterest! Seriously! I love it. This is a fabulous idea that is so beautiful and so easy. It's pearls glued to styrafoam balls. I'm so glad that I kept those balls from my 6th grade science project.... I'll be completing some of these sometime soon. 
(Yes, I still have supplies left from my 6th grade science project. I like to hold on to supplies, you never know when you're going to need them ;) )

Another great idea from Pinterest. With us not having tile counter tops anymore (we had them at our old house), I'm thinking about making some of these for our house. 

I love all of the beautiful changing colors going on all around us right now. I love that in the morning, my kitchen has a subtle red glow to it as the morning sun shines through the red leaves outside the kitchen window. It's so beautiful. 

I love this little boy!!!!! ♥
He's so precious and I love that we get to be a part of his life right now and I'm hoping it becomes permanent one day. This picture was taken at the last football game of the season. I'm glad I got to take him. Even though it was cold, even though he got hungry and sleepy and we had to leave early, I'm glad we went. I love him so much!

Okay... that's all for now! What do you love this week???


  1. LOVE each and every one of them! You are the greatest!

  2. That's lots of love! I hope we get to see your little one, one day :)
