ten on tuesday.

1. I spoke too soon on Sunday when I was all braggy happy mama about this being thebestsummerever. I lost my cool with my kids today at the Cottage. In front of Ginger. And maybe a few clients.

Oops.

2. I think I’m in a post-vacation fog. I’ve gone to bed every night by nine and I still feel wiped each morning. There’s only one solution for this: more vacation! (See you next week, California.)

3. I’m a sucker for any article about the power of photography. And this one didn’t disappoint.

4. While at the Beach my mama sent me a link to Julianna Miner’s blog post about The Sweet Spot. I cried both times I read it and if I had the guts to read it again, I’m sure I’d cry once more. Our little fam is right smack dab in the Sweet Spot. Or as my BFF would say as we laid on my bed counting our blessings last week, “This is what I’ve always wanted. I’m living my dream come true.”

5. Also while laying on my bed last week Samantha, Amy and I plowed through the last two seasons of Burning Love. It’s a bad, bad habit but it’s so, so good. Fans of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series, betcha can’t watch just one.

6. Speaking of things that are so, so bad yet so, so good…

Yep, that guy.

7. I posted that picture on the Erin Cobb Photography Facebook page yesterday. Go ahead and “like” it for your daily dose of adorable faces and randomness from my brain. 😉

8. We’re in the process of getting our Fall activities squared away and somehow even amidst our insistence that we not over schedule our kids we find ourselves with FIVE collective weekly activities: dance, piano, soccer, tae kwon do and a mid-week church activity. Yikes!

9. We’ll be attending two weddings coming up with receptions inside barns. I’m so excited to see how they turn out! One is out West and one is down South and it begs the question, what does one wear to a barn wedding? This is a serious question. Brent is stressing.

10. I have 26 minutes until I turn into a post-vacation pumpkin. It’s pushing 9:00 y’all! Night. =)

Can’t wait to see you at the barn wedding ‘out West’ – if not sooner! 🙂

TOT and a Karen Russell blog post all before I go to bed! Awesome night! I always love your TOT posts! Can’t wait to see how you like your travels thru Oregon! This state rocks!:)

If it makes you feel better, I lost my cool with my kids last night. After which, they proceeded to be the BEST kids ever by doing their chores, picking up their rooms, and generally being the sweetest ever. Which, of course, made me feel HORRIBLE for losing my cool… 🙁

Speaking of weddings in barns, have you seen this? http://www.refinery29.com/hipster-wedding. Wear something from a thrift store.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand, thank you for the tears! At least I haven’t put makeup on yet. 🙂
