Not quite sure what's missing...

This living room is still not there. Not quite sure what's not working.... I changed up the pillows to see if that would help. This fun patterned pillow was the inspiration. It was from the grocery store. I love it, but I think it looks a bit lonely on the bench.Then I did my ever-so-classy gluegun cloth napkins to make a few coordinating accent pillows around the room. I am happy with them. The blue feels more like me.
I guess it's the fact that I still need lighting, a new couch (or cover), a new fireplace, etc. is my distraction here. I will keep thinking on it.

Happy Birthday to ME!

My scrapbook cake from Uncle G and Auntie N, how creative!

My B-day is smack dab between princess L and big boy R so it gets little attention. Which is ok, really just fine. This year my mom was away too, so there was even less fan fair than usual (Mom likes a good party).
So we had a few family members over for desert the day after my actual birthday. And a lovely and delicious cake. And of course a super thoughtful gift from my in-laws.
On my actual day the kids were in daycare and I was off.
My sweet hubby surprised me and took the day off work so we could hang out together. We worked out, visited my Dad, went shopping for clothes, and went to the Boathouse for a late lunch, then we picked up the kids. What a great day!
These are the TWO dozen white roses (my fav flower) and the MAC cosmetics gift card from my MIL.
And this very flattering picture is what I looked like after I ran.
That's right, I ran. For 35 minutes. Well, after running the first 10 minutes, I ran for one song and walked for one song. I haven't really ran since High School, I hate it. But I like to get sweaty and work hard, and I have been reading about Chi running and I wanted to give it a try. They call it effortless, injury-free running. You can see by my face that it was not exactly effortless, but it wasn't bad. I was not sore at all the next day. It is not really practical for me to run when I spend most of my time at home with 3 kids, but maybe in the fall.
And now I am 31.

Kitchen details

The kitchen is coming along, bit by bit.
Since I wrote last we got a new stove, and handles on the cupboards. There are still a lot of things on the TO DO list, but I was recently reminded to think about the TA DA list and be encouraged.
If you want to see it before go to this post.

this is all that I can say right now...

All I Can Say
David Crowder Band

Lord I'm tired
So tired from walking
And Lord I'm so alone
And Lord the dark
Is creeping in
Creeping up
To swallow me
I think I'll stop
Rest here a while

And didn't You see me cry'n?
And didn't You hear me call Your name?
Wasn't it You I gave my heart to?
I wish You'd remember
Where you sat it down

And this is all that I can say right now
I know it's not much
And this is all that I can give
yeah that's my everything

I didn't notice You were standing here
I didn't know that
That was You holding me
I didn't notice You were cry'n too
I didn't know that
That was You washing my feet
