Happy New Year

Hello! I'm back from my unplanned blogging haidus. We came home last night, sans Daddus, and we're doing our best to readjust to the day to day. It's a little surreal - trying to get back to normal, but knowing that it's only a temporary "normal." It feels a bit oxymoronic, but I'm well rested and inspired, so I'll take it.

This weekend I'll be painting the new place, and I'm fixin' on a trip to Ikea. But for today I'm playing with ideas for my big boy's birthday. He'll be 4 (!) in a few weeks and he's asked for a mustache party. How fun is that? I'm thinking about bringing these guys back. And maybe a pin the mustache on the walrus game? Does anyone have any ideas? I picked up this awesome stationery today to play around with. So awesome.Anyway, I wish you all the best for the new year. Thank you so much for reading my blog, you make my small, housewife world feel wide open and inspiring. Here's to the many adventures and creative pursuits 2011 has in store for all of us!


  1. What an awesome idea for a party theme! Beckett is too creative. :) This may be too much (or not enough), but just an could have those silly glasses with attached mustaches as party favors.

    Or for a more creative version:

    Also, aren't these etched glasses amazing?!....

  2. Hi Kellie! Thanks for the links. Those pint glasses are drool worthy!

    We'll definitely be having the classic Groucho glasses, and B has asked for mustaches on sticks. That's the next project on the list.
