Seven Quick Takes: A New Brother, 100 Acre Woods and a Fabulous Recipe

Linking with Jen today for...

7 quick takes sm1 7 Quick Takes about rattlesnakes, books, and holidays that should be more fun than they are

1.  I AM GETTING ANOTHER BROTHER.  That's right.  These two were engaged last night.

They are two of the most loving, faithful people you will ever meet.  And, Sean is pretty good about setting kids straight, too :)  Love them and cannot wait for the wedding!

2.  How can any other quick take compare to that one?  Hmmm, we'll see if we can at least come's this lady's birthday today!!!!  She really is the best!
If you don't know her, you should.  She is confident, determined, sweet-as-can-be and as true as they come.  She simply makes life better.  Go to her blog - read it - get to know Tiffany.  You will be glad you did!

3.  I made these scones yesterday.  
Seriously, they are to die for.  Better yet, they're easy.  Make some - you won't be disappointed.

4.  Halloween went a thousand times better this year than it did last year.  

5.  I love Anna's idea of encouraging beauty this month.  She's just amazing, isn't she!?!
Today's prompt is "confident in color."  I lean toward neutrals in all areas of life - look at my walls!  Today, I added a bit of color.  Not my go-to, but it was fun.

6.  Some people think John Paul is tou young for candy.  He doesn't.
When the big boys weren't looking, he found Peter's stash and was so very proud!

7.  And, back to #1.  I just can't get over it.  Here's to the future Mr. and Mrs. Lee!!!

Head on over to Jen's place for a whole lot more takes!


  1. Aww, thank you for the sweet take! You're the best. THE BEST. You know what else is the best?? Sean and RoRo being engaged! I mean, seriously, how much fun is this going to be?!?

  2. Thank you so so much! We cannot believe how blessed we are! So excited to start this journey with you, my sweet sister!! And happiest birthday, tiff!!!

  3. I know this post is older but I just came across your blog. I'm wondering what wall color you have? I really like it. We have that same rug!

    1. Hi Kelly! It's actually a color I had custom made to match a crib sheet, ha! I used it for a nursery first. I'd be happy to email you the formula if that would help!

    2. that's ok, you don't have to do that! it looks great!
