good morning! good morning! good morning!
it's time to rise and shine!
good morning! good morning! good morning! 
i hope you're feeling fine!
get out of bed, you sleep head....i forget the rest of the song.
that may sound like a cute little jingle, but i'm haunted by it because my dear mother used to burst into my room and sing it to me nearly every morning before school. it was about 17x too loud (aka it was more than a whisper) and was never-ending. it also made me want to go even further under my sheets, so it didn't really work. i woke up with it in my head and couldn't decide if it was a sign of a good mood, or something worse. 
i'm not entirely sure how it's already the end of the week, but i'll take it! i'm heading out to the suburbs later this afternoon to attend a wedding tomorrow, so i'm looking forward to wrapping things up here and hitting the road!

i'd been contemplating this dresser for awhile (a girl can never have too much storage space), so i finally pulled the trigger this week and am so glad i did. extra storage space = less junk being visible, which is good because i'm in total de-clutter mode. i'm hoping to find some fun drawer pulls at Hobby Lobby to personalize it a bit more to my style, too.

speaking of home stuff, i was in the burbs yesterday to help a friend from college decorate her new home! she reached out to me for help and i was so excited. i've only ever decorated for myself or my mom/sister, so i knew this would be a fun challenge. we had a lot of success yesterday, so i'm looking forward to getting back out there and keeping the momentum going next week! 


i used my second Tan Towel last night in preparation for the wedding on Saturday and i think i'm convinced. it is a darn good product - easy to apply, natural looking, and not streaky. as a self-tanning novice, i'm totally understanding the appeal of adding a little healthy glow. 

i plan on trying out this (new to me) podcast on my drive home today. i'll let you know what i think! 

have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Your ikea link isn't working. Hope it wasn't the Hemnes dresser. I just got an email saying they are 15% off right now!

  3. My mom sang the exact same song in the morning! Didn't work for me either. And I hated it! It was so annoying!

  4. Lauren,

    With the tan towels did you use gloves on your hands when applying? Or did you just make sure to wash your hands well after applying? I've been thinking about trying these, but I have pale skin so as extra information from someone who has used them is greatly appreciated!

    1. I saw your question and I had to chime in, I am very fair as well and I use them all the time! I do not think a glove is necessary at all! I always just wash my hands off after using. Something I have found to be helpful is immediately applying lotion to my wrist area and then my hands. I feel like it helps it to fade into my hands instead of there being a line! :)

  5. Sometimes I wake up with the song we sang every morning in kindergarten in my head:

    Good morning to you!
    Good morning to you!
    We're all in our places
    with smiles on our faces
    Good morning to you!
    Good morning to you!

  7. I can sympathize. My mom did similar with "birdie, birdie on the window sill....cocked his shiny head and said get out of bed you sleepy head." Scarred....for life.

  8. My mom did too. Same song. AS she pulled off my comforter. Not cool.

  9. My mom used to sing that to me too! Pretty sure it was a take on an old song, from Sunday School. :) Glad to hear my mom wasn't the ONLY one who sings it.

    Thanks for bringing up an old memory!
