Happy Friday!

Live Colorfully

Happy Friday Loves!  I hope you all had a nice week!  I am wiped out.  Last Saturday and Sunday I had my two best friends and their kids over to stay at my house and it was CHAOS.  (I mean that in the best possible way.)  We were just busy doing things the entire two days.  It was a blast but I am old and if I don’t get some downtime during Saturday or Sunday it throws my whole week off.  Thankfully, this weekend is going to be a pretty relaxing one for me and I cant wait!  I have brunch planned with a girlfriend, some errands to run and a mani/pedi planned but other than that I want to just watch Netflix and veg.

Today I am linking up with AprilAmanda and Della.  Let’s jump right into it:mattress-pile

    1. New Mattress.  I took advantage of the sales last weekend for Columbus Day and scooped up a brand new mattress for myself!  I haven’t gotten one in over ten years and that one was a hand me down from a family member’s guest room.  Since beggars cant be choosers I took it gratefully at the time but it is the opposite in what I look for in a mattress.  I like a soft, fluffy cloud and this thing is a firm, hard cinderblock.    The springs poke me in the back and I have wanted to get a new one for years.  I CANT WAIT for it to be delivered on Sunday!  I feel like a little kid at Christmas!  


2. Taylor Singing.  I think I may have mentioned in the past that my daughter has an amazing voice.  She is extremely musically inclined.  I honestly have no idea where such a little thing gets such a big voice.  Usually she is private and doesn’t like me to tape her singing or post about it but last night she let me!  So, here you go…

3.  Halloween Sweatshirt – Take II.  You guys may remember the super cute orange sweatshirt I ordered for Halloween.  It came.  It’s brown.  That’s over.  I just ordered this one and hopefully it is cute and the right color.

4.  Escape Room.  I’ve been wanting to do an escape room for a long time (have any of you ever done one?) and I just bought a Groupon for one.  I am pretty excited about it!  Me and five of my friends are going to try to solve Detective Story next month in order to escape the room.

5.  Ballerina Bun.  This is awesome!  I want to try it on Taylor’s hair.

Okay loves!  Have a fabulous weekend!

    Whoa! I am legit blow away with Taylor’s voice. My boyfriend was listening next to me and the first thing he said: “she’s so young and so talented and what’s even crazier is that you can tell that she’s even holding back a little. Like there’s so much more to her voice still.” Seriously, she’s brilliant and the fact that she plays the piano is astounding! Taylor, send me a signed copy of your CD when your big and famous, girl!

    Hi Pamela, I just popped over from Charlotte’s My Pixie Blog and so glad I did. What a lovely site you have. You had me at glitter. I love the Halloween sweatshirt! Congrats on your new mattress. There’s nothing better than a comfy, cozy bed. I pinned your first image to my PINK & RED board 🙂

    Omg, your daughter has such a big, beautiful and powerful voice. It was so incredible to hear that voice come out of her and glad she let you videotape her!

    Ahh a new mattress. You enjoy it momma. I totally understand b/c I felt as though I had an old one for YEARS and you seriously cannot put a pricetag on something you spend god only knows how many hours of your life sleeping in. You are going to sleep like a baby 🙂

    OMG ESCAPE ROOM! I totally TOTALLY want to do this too!! Let us know how it is!

    PAM, THIS IS LORI CATHY’S FRIEND. CONGRATS ON YOUR MATTRESS, BUT YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY PUT TAYLOR IN SINGING COMPETIONS. SHE HAS A BEAUTIFUL.VOICE. MY SON WHO IS 16, USED TO HANG OUT WITH TAYLOR AT CATHY’S AND AT 1 OF HER BIRTHDAYS, AND HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S HER. TO TOP IT OFF SHE PLAYS PIANO. LOOK FOR COMPETITIONS TO GET HER INTO, UNTIL SHE IS A LITTLE OLDER FOR THE VOICE, AND IF AMERICAN IDOL IS STILL AROUND, BUT I HEARD THIS IS THE LAST YEAR. SHE CAN GO PLACES.
