 i've got a date with this little man this AM....we're both still under the weather.  i might have a case of laryngitis.  i'd love to curl up and watch a movie....walker agreed.

he always picks good night's the one movie i'm okay w/ him watching.  it last 10 minutes and he will sit the entire time and watch it.  i use this to my advantage....
 i need helps the throat.  i wish i had a doctor here.  i probably need an antibiotic by now.  i've lived here for a year but i still don't have a doc.  and it never works to call when you get sick b/c they always say they aren't accepting new patients.
i feel like this picture i found at a thrift store yrs ago....i call him achoo....b/c he looks like he is about to sneeze.
 i really need to clean my house.  i have company coming tomorrow AM.  i don't have it in me.
 instead i work....walker thinks he should help....95% of the time when walker's not at school, this is how i work.
 9:30 and it's time for walker to take a nap (secretly i might be doing the happy dance)....
b/c now i can curl up on the sofa w/ a blanket and read my new magazines....finger's crossed his nap last long.....
if you want something to read, lauren at the cottage mix asked me to answer some questions about how the designer's attic got started....
i hope y'all have a wonderful weekend.  xoxo.

we packed up and heading to the mountains last was so nice to just veg and not have one thing that we had to do.  we hiked and cooked and sat by the fire at was just what the doctor ordered.  and then it was time to return to the real world: i came back w/ a cold, a suitcases full of dirty clothes, a pile of emails and work that i couldn't do b/c my ipad didn't have service (so if you are waiting for an email from me, it's coming!!)...happy monday, right?!!

do y'all feel like you have been celebrating halloween for a long time.....we have had several halloween things and i must say, i'm kind of glad it's finally halloween and today will be the last time the kiddos dress up and get more candy!!  last night, we had a neighborhood party and i was going to make some mummy cookies but i seriously think that every mom in SC is on pinterest and pinned the same recipe and the nutter butters were sold out!  only cookie at publix missing!  i was shocked and disappointed b/c i thought that was such a cute, easy way to be crafty!!  i hope y'all have a wonderful halloween!!! i'm off to pass out candy at taylor's school!

*all images are on my pinterest (sorry i am running last this am)

seriously this blog is such a good place for me to come and daydream.....b/c my real life is so polar opposite.  it's not the easiest being a mom that works from home (and sometimes i get jealous of my husband as he leaves for work).  my youngest is going through a stage...a stage we don't remember w/ taylor.  he's very needy, he gets mad, and yes- he might hit (i said it....usually just me though...but sometimes others).  trying to send emails w/ a child that is crying next to you is not that luxurious...and i guarantee you i don't look glamourous when i am answering phone calls....i'm probably mouthing to my 4 yr old that i am on the phone and she has to wait to talk, wiping my child's nose, getting someone a sippy cup, or shutting myself in the bathroom so i can carry on an adult conversation.....either way, i love being a mom and i am thankful to have this blog as a way to daydream:)  thank y'all so much for still coming to visit....i am so glad to have you in my life!  xo- shannon

so i have to admit, it's really hard for me to cook during the week.  i feel like i always make the same things over and over again.  i need meals that are good, that the kids will eat, that are semi healthy, and that don't take a lot of time i am cooking out of my crock pot all week.  last night i made the best should try it (it's totally not healthy but oh, so good).  the only bad thing about cooking out of the crock pot is that you have to start thinking about dinner at right now, i just got done searing a roast...and i'm not really in the mood to touch red meat at 9:00 in the morning.....
