2. I love my new alarm clock/sound machine! It's the Sound Soother White Noise Machine from The Sharper Image. I got it for Christmas from Peter but I didn't set it up and start using it until last weekend. It has twenty different sounds, which is awesome. It's been so nice to read and go to sleep to the sound of a crackling fire, which I like to picture being in a cozy fireplace in my room. I haven't used the alarm clock yet (my 2-year-old has that covered pretty well), but when I do use it, it will be nice to wake up to the sound of chirping birds or a babbling brook or the ocean waves crashing against the shore near my dream beach house on Cape Cod. Anyway...I love it!
3. I got this adorable new book, When My Baby Dreams by Adele Enersen, that is so cute. I'd read about this woman awhile ago and how she sets up different backgrounds around her cooperative and soundly sleeping baby while she napped. This is a very creative mother! (I would never be able to do this for many reasons, one of them being that naptime is my hallowed time to get things done or just relax. Another reason is that I wouldn't be able to come up with these ideas and props in a million years!)
My favorite is the Bookworm. So cute!
"When my baby dreams of being a little bug...she thinks to herself, 'Today I'll be a bookworm!'"
4. What would this post be without a Downton Abbey mention?
This scene from last week's episode made me happy!
|Matthew and Mary. Sigh.|
5. And of course, I need to mention the other big interest in my life right now, Pinterest! I've been a member of the site for two weeks. I totally love it. It's been increasingly challenging to manage my time with it though, which is why I took so long to join it in the first place. Help! On the bright side, a sophisticated friend of mine from Philadelphia seriously wrote this on my Facebook wall the other day: "Just FYI every time I go on Pinterest I think I wonder what Donna pinned today and if I could I'd repin like 90% of your stuff. " How awesome is that? I may not be able to cook pancakes, but I've got mad Pinterest skills! I pinned a ton of things this week, and here is just one of them. This is such a pretty kitchen!
I hope you had a good week and that you have a great weekend!
