With back to school and Oscar’s surgery and our anniversary, this has been an exciting and emotional week. I won’t lie, I’m looking forward to a do nothing weekend. : ) How about you? Is your summer coming to a close? Has school started yet? Doing anything fun tomorrow? While I make plans to sit still, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:

-I featured Susan’s before and after couch pictures on Cafémom. So neat.
-Dibs on one of these cake paintings!
This photo (above) made me happy.
-He calls this series Jackson Pollock on Prozac.
God Save the Queen as a mural.
-I love these photos of old and new together. Thanks, Tala.
-I don’t remember losing so much hair before. Advice, please.
-What do you think about this extension cord lamp?

I write a daily post for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here are this week’s posts:
Kitten lipstick.
School supply labels.
Issue 2 of Maeve Magazine.
A small crib. Because babies are tiny.
Tada! Shop is such a fun site.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll see you back here on Monday. I miss you already!

kisses,
Gabrielle
