Planter | La La Lovely Blog

Summer Sunset | La La Lovely Blog


my fave planter /  it’s not really a planter, rather a container, but I love it this way.

a stunning summer sunset / when the sky shifts in seconds and you want to capture it forever

a perfect little profile / I’m kind of freaking at four.  My prayers lately include, “please don’t let those chubby chubby cheeks thin out and if he could just keep saying things like “yes my are” and “no my don’t” for another year or so, that would be good with me.”

I took some pics of my bedroom this week and was messing about with my camera and just felt like I need to snap more pictures.  More moments, really.  Whether they be still life or life moving so fast I’d be a fool not try to capture some of it (like those chubby cheeks and eyes all intense on watching Woody the Woodpecker).  I’m not awesome with my camera and so I kind of avoid it.  But, nothing is perfect, right?  Even pictures  plastered on blogs.  I’m hoping to get back to my Fave Friday posts, even if they are simple, just to keep me snapping some.

So, Happy Friday, lovelies!  How has your week been?  

We are stall falling into summer routines, which translate to routines of relaxing.  The weather here has been so very rainy.  I try not to complain, and if I’m honest, I’m not one that minds rain.  It’s just I’d love for the kids to be able to swim and soak up more sun.  Maybe next week will shine bright?

I have some fun posts planned for next week.  Think traveling with kids and summer reads.  I haven’t posted on books for awhile, but I’ve been reading a plenty so I figure it’s time.  And, I want to hear what all of you are reading this summer.

Hope your weekend is sunny in every sense of the word.

I’ve longed loved this photo of what I thought was a photo of a flying circus tent or something.  Come to find out it is a whole photo series by Laurent Chéhére called Flying Houses.  I’m always taken with anything magical and surreal.  But, the fact that it is about houses, totally makes me swoon….la la love!  These are  are just a few of my favorites, but there are so many more stunning ones, here.

So the weekend is upon us, once again.  Fridays feel so full of anticipation.  I’d like to get my Mondays to feel that way, too.  Sometimes they do, but they are mixed with a large does of expectation, anticipation and a little anxiousness at the thought of will I get it all done?  I guess that is just a sign of still needing to work on taking one day at time.

But, for now I’m looking forward to this weekend…spending time with an out of town bestie.  A soul sister, really.

Beyond that, I’m thinking spring break and Easter.  Do you have any big plans for Easter?  Any lovely traditions?  I need to start making more holiday traditions.  I didn’t have a ton growing up, but the little things we seemed to repeat each year are things I find myself trying repeat with my kids now.

Speaking of Easter, I shared the easiest Easter eggs ever this week, if you are going to be dipping, dying or coloring.

Happy weekend, lovelies!


01 / Do people really not notice the weather when they are happy?  What do you think?

02 / Kids love to play with shaving cream, but how about create with it?

03 /  Fat flushing detox water.  Ok, that got my attention and you can make it yourself.

04 / Have you tried this on Instagram yet?

05 / Narcissism seems to be all the talk these days, doesn’t it?

Happy Friday, lovelies.  I hope your week has been a good one.  Although, it’s freezing, it is sunny and I have the promise of warm weather awaiting me next week…..my soul sighs.

In other news, my lob got a lift.  I decided to go above the shoulders and go a bit blonder.  I’m still hoping to go lighter than this, but it’s a process they tell me.  The cut feels like an actual change, which is just what I was needing.  Now, I’ve just got to learn to style it, beyond soaking myself in sea spray (I’ll be studying this post this weekend).  Oh, and pretty coffee.  I had a pretty coffee this week, and little things like that can be such big things, sometimes.

We have a winner for the Dot + Bo Giveaway.  Click through to see if it’s you….along with some links i’m loving this week.

Happy friday!  Or, happy freezing friday, to many of you.  How was your week?  I’d like to say mine was productive, or inspiring, or lively, but it wasn’t.  It was the very normal kind, where most of the good stuff lives, if we look for it (I’m learning this art, which doesn’t come natural to me or likely anyone).  We stayed in, and then tried to get out, basketball games, tv watching, field trips to a Wizard of Oz play and the easiest (and cheapest) trip, I’ve ever made to IKEA.   So, I guess I did accomplish something new.

I’m sharing some of my favorites this Friday, both include some kind of WILD.

this week we made it through a flooded basement, little mermaid tryouts, basketball, and valentines boxes. well, the basement is still in disaray, but the play parts are being assigned today and the valentines boxes have been brought in.  as usual, this “should be ahead of holidays” blogger is always behind (both on the blog and at home).  i procrastinate on my children’s homework just as much as i did my own.  i guess some things never change.  well the one thing that has changed is that the
