“Cheers to the freakin weeken (silent d) I drink to that” – Rhianna

That girl is wise beyond her years.  Can we talk about the fact that it is April, and not just April…it is mid-April.  Seriously, wasn’t I just hunkering down for the end of the Mayan Calender with my jar of peanut butter and flashlight?  Where is time going, and why aren’t all these projects finishing themselves.

This weekend we are going to be kicking some home-sweet-home rump, but before I get all sweaty and exhausted let me revel in this sweet little Etsy shop. jen skelley Jen Skelley’s sweet prints easily caught my eye with all the vibrant colors and whimsical characters.  You put a whale on just about anything and I pretty much call you my soul mate.  How adorable would a grouping of those be in a playroom?

Along with everything Coachella, I was also able to find some pretty sweet DIY projects.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these and make them my own. lovely indeed I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a sweet little bar cart that I can refurbish, and when I find (or build) my dream companion you had better believe a few of these DIY bottles will be riding dirty on top.  Look, we are young and fairly broke so we can’t afford the “bottles” you see in those rap videos.  Our bottles are generally of the plastic variety, so giving them a little makeover might be good for our bar carts reputation. one charming party I am getting a little overly excited for Cinco de Mayo, it is one of my favorites.  Okay, I really enjoy nachos and salsa and maybe a tangy green drink (on the rocks, extra strong).  The adorable little pinatas that One Charming Party whipped up are getting me in the fiesta spirit.  These look like they would be super easy for kiddos to pull too, so instead of giving that neighbor kid that murders ants with a magnifying glass a giant stick to terrorize everyone with just put up a couple of these and watch everyone go wild. honestly wtf Talk about unexpected.  I have seen a lot of cool sunglasses, but these are taking the cake right now.  Erica from Honestly WTF actually drilled holes in her shades to embroider an awesome little design.  She even makes it look easy.  I must admit I have gone a little embroidery crazy.  Maybe it is my inner granny, or maybe it is because I can’t embroider beans but I think I like it. design mom I am excited about this, it is one of those things you don’t really need but it makes your day a little bit better.  You buy this customizable printer and chose what is sent to you daily.  It can be news updates, grocery lists. Sudoku puzzles, or even your astrology report.  Imagine grabbing you morning horoscope before heading out the door, or even better sending yourself little love notes since it is all manageable from your cellular.  I don’t even think my explanation does this little guy justice, so check it out here.  Now what is my excuse for absolutely “needing” one of these?

What did you find out there this week?
