if i could reach up and hold a star for every time you've made me smile, the entire evening sky would be in the palm of my hand. (unknown)
today was a big (and i mean huge) day at our house. malena has moved up to a big girl bed. this is a milestone day. the crib (thanks again ann!) was dismantled (which stirs many emotions for me which will be a topic of a future blog) and the big girl bed was assembled. she was so excited all she wanted to do was be in her room. it was so fun watching her sit up, lay down, sit up, lay down, organize her blankets, rearrange her animals (telling them to smile for pictures), take multiple pictures of her bed/blankets/animals and saying "got it" after each and every click. i can't believe that our little girl is almost three. the time has gone by in the blink of an eye. i have loved every millisecond (even the brutal potty training ones that continue), and i look forward to every millisecond to come.

some fun things that i came across this weekend and thought i would share...
- this cover of adele's "someone like you" - thanks jon for sharing, really like this male/female version of the song.
this new magazine. if you love ideas for hosting parties, this is the eye candy you have been waiting for. i am already scheming the next party we could have when i am feeling better.
- these awesome handmade custom pieces of art that show family trees in a totally new and imaginative way.
- this fabulous on-line bakery shop with some of the cutest cupcake picks i have ever seen, i now have on order on the way to my house. more baking is one of the many things on my "i will do this after treatment" list so i figured that some fun things would be good motivation to get started.

the last two links are ones that my mom had seen in magazines, so we sat side by side last night (after some good glasses of reisling) and did a little on-line shopping. super fun.

lastly, the winner of the card giveaway this week was michelle - woohoo, will hand deliver the cards to you this week my dear. here is the bonus one:

unlike most sundays, i actually look forward to tomorrow. i am taking the day off to spend the time with my mom as we celebrate her birthday. a fun day is planned, topped off with trick or treating with dora (oops, i mean malena).

happy halloween all, hope you get more treats than tricks. xoxo.
