My Everyday Life: Week 34

Here’s what this past week looked like:

Last Sunday morning I was reading a magazine & drinking coffee in Carmel. Heaven!

Big fat daisies in Carmel.

Graham crackers don’t fit in jars of milk. Cooper still doesn’t realize this. Also hello lashes!

Cheesy egg sandwich.

My nail polish that will be good for Autumn.

I made baked dark chocolate donuts. Recipe SOOOOOOON!

Our fish are still alive! The blue one is in a jar next to this one.

I love staring at this one. I cleaned their bowl out this week. Our fish don’t really have names. Is that bad?

Drinking coffee outside.

I get really excited when I get a Joy the Baker + Lost Crates package. This one is my favorite so far.

A big ole salad in my new favorite bowl.

It’s been foggy every morning this week. Burns off at about noonish. It makes our house super cozy.

Toe curling while watching TV.

Making paper airplanes with my boys on a sunny Saturday morning.


Flying the paper airplanes!

Getting my craft on. Gin, blood orange soda, washi tape, new moleskine & a grocery list. Boom.

Cooper’s drawings are changing. They’re so much more controlled. I see he wrote COOP in there.

Beet salad & an Arnold Palmer at Il Fornaio.

I froze one of Cooper’s yogurts and told him it was a Popsicle.

He believed me for 2 minutes and then told me that it wasn’t and didn’t want to eat it anymore. Boo.

New office color matching!!!!!  I totally picked that color because it was named Raccoon Fur.

    I have to have a good name to my paint colors – I totally get it.

  • Katrina

    Looooove those nail colours! You’re going to be super styling for fall 🙂

  • Alex

    Wow that fish is amazing looking! And I can’t wait for your donut recipe 🙂

  • Judi

    We have the same plates with the circles on them : )
    I LOVE those things!

  • Jane M

    Your week looked fantastic. Mine sadly was not. I sure hope it gets better and soon!

  • jenny

    baked dark chocolate donuts? you do know how to make a girl salivate. also, that salad looks delish. I need to grab some radishes when I go to the grocery store tomorrow–you’ve inspired me! 🙂

  • Diane

    I got my boss a fish that looked just like that! His name was Rembrandt.

  • Hannah

    I’ve been loving these foggy mornings too!

  • Amanda Barkey

    Coops toes- so sweet

  • Lori from a family's life

    Baked chocolate donuts!! Sounds Amaz!!!

    Loving the nail polish colours! I definitely prefer autumn colours!!

  • Val

    lovely pictures

  • Saar Dockx

    Oh those pictures are beautiful!
    I’m really looking forward to the donut recipe!
    And that bowl is SO pretty where is it from?

    love, Saar!

  • Lucia

    Love both the fog and the daisies.

  • jackie @ marin mama cooks

    Ok, I’m going to keep checking back for that chocolate donut recipe, what a perfect weekend treat to whip up for the kids. My kids are back in school, so I’m all excited for fall cooking, soccer Saturdays and routines. Routines are awesome!

  • Nicole @ The Dirty Oven

    Love the pictures. Gotta love the gray crayon. Just Gotta! Fav.

  • Erin @littlesacredspace

    What’s all in that salad in your new favorite bowl? Looks great. Would love to recreate it!

  • Roxy

    Do tell about the moleskine/washi tape/grocery list situation. What were you making? Any craft that involves notebooks, tape, and lists seems right up my (dorky) alley.

  • Julie

    I need to get my fall nail polish colors on… thanks for the inspiration!

  • Kristen

    As a former picky eater I’m glad to see Cooper is discerning enough to know you were trying to pull a fast one on him with that yogurt ;-). My dad once tried to hide sliced up radishes in my strawberry ice cream…yea right. Eventually I grew out of it (as we all do) and frustrate my parents to no end with all of the food I now love but used to refuse to eat. Oh and LOVE the new office color

  • Robyn

    well clearly gin is the key to successful meal planning! haha

  • stacy

    I love these “Every Day Life” segments. Giggled at Cooper busting you on the yogurt “pop”! I freeze my 3 yr old’s Stonyfield Farm squeezable yogurts and give them to her as a frozen treat, but Im pretty sure that gig is gonna be up soon. Oh well, I gave it a good run.

  • Megan

    I just painted my bedroom a color that I call Heather Hornberry… I think it’s actually Heather Harmony of something… It’s gray purple.
    No bigs.

  • Megan

    I can’t wait for the donut recipe, too!! And I love foggy mornings – and Carmel!!

  • Rachel

    Man that is a fancy paper plane! My mum used to do the yoghurt Popsicle trick all the time. I don’t thin it worked then either. But I LOVE froyo now. Did I just use froyo…oh lord.

  • Linda

    I painted our family room in our townhouse back in DC a Farrow and Ball color called “Mouse’s Back”. It really was the color of a mouse back. I think I picked the color just because I loved the name.
    I am now having all the ugly brown woodwork in our new house painted a F&B color called “Tallow”, a gorgeous creamy off white color. My painters sarcastically call it “Kick plate Yellow” because I made them repaint all the kick plates.

  • Michelle {LiveLoudly}

    I would have totally picked the color because of the name too! 😉
    The picture with the paper airplane is awesome – great capture.
