tuesday randomness

Well, hello!  How are you?  I am full of randomness today.  Nothing too earth shattering going on over here..but if we were chatting in person I'd probably tell you...

I've been drinking this iced coffee recipe like it's going out of style and I actually wake up thinking about it {not even kidding}.

I am dying to try the grey nail polish trend.  Want to go get a pedicure with me?

and...


I have been eating this soup {from Vons deli section} with fresh croutons almost every day for lunch for almost two weeks.  I am a creature of habit.  And I love this soup.  So good and autumny and fresh.

and...

I downloaded the Craig Pro Craig's List app for iPhone and as a consequence have become completely addicted to searching Craigs List for random items multiple times a day.  I'm a little worried I am going to end up in a 12 step program for Craig's List junkies..."Hi, my name is Amber and I am addicted to Craig's List"

and...

I added a few more little DIY projects to my Halloween decorations:





BOO wall art and crooked frames and a little paper banner that says 'be very afraid'.  I would have preferred 'trick or treat' or 'happy halloween' but I'm missing a few chipboard letters, so I was just working with what I had.  Do you like them, or did I just cross over from tasteful Halloween to cluttered and cheesy?  I'm still not sure...but, it's only up for a few weeks and I'm too lazy to change it back now.

and...

Reid has started using the word "whatevs".  I find it mostly annoying.  He thinks it sounds seriously cool.    Really??  If I don't react maybe it will go away...let's hope.

and...

I made these muffins the other day and the kids went crazy for them. 

and...
 
After seeing this post I am seriously debating hosting a Halloween cookie decorating party.  But, I haven't yet found the energy to commit.  Then I could show off aforementioned Halloween decorations.  We'll see...

That same post also made me want to whip up a fort kit. Because, honestly, what kid doesn't want to build a fort??  Heck, I'd like to build a fort myself...think the kids could still find me??

I am working the sweetest little design for the shop.  I keep tweaking and tweaking and I think it is almost perfect.  I can't wait to show you.  Maybe a giveaway is in order?  That seems like a fun way to introduce a new product, right?

I am obsessed with this console table.  Unfortunately, at $1500, there is zero chance that I will ever actually own it, but isn't it lovely?

and...

As I type this, my two year old has sensed that since I'm distracted, it's a good opportunity to scoot his stool up to the kitchen counter to rummage through our junk drawer looking for gum and matches and trouble.  Better run!  Nice chatting with you!

I hope your Tuesday is wonderful!
