hello gorgeous weekend...

the inspiration word for today's post!
At two years old, "gorgeous" is Ella's new word - thanks to Ema - and so now we are all feeling exceptionally gorgeous every time Ella tells each of us we are gorgeous...and we are finding ourselves using the term for everything now.) *wink*

With that said...
before we all head off into our gorgeous weekend...
(in this case, gorgeous is indicative of a fabulous attitude - not weather conditions)...

I wanted to share a few "gorgeous" photos depicting the various "gorgeous" projects going on around here...

The first official gorgeous shipment of pastry pedestals has arrived!!!

gorgeous chocolate truffles for a photoshoot...(thank you Mount Dora Confectionary)

gorgeous petit fours for the same photoshoot...(thank you Publix bakery).

the gorgeous magazines I'm itchin' to read...

and we of course can't forget to include Ella's gorgeous project she created yesterday in the 1/2 bath...

I'm REALLY looking forward to a gorgeous weekend...

• Date night tonight
• Neighborhood family picnic on Saturday...
• downtime with my family...

It's going to be absolutely gorgeous...
because I have a gorgeous atttitude...
and therefore I'm going to "will" it to be gorgeous! *wink*

Wishing you a gorgeous weekend as well...
Here's hoping we all take the time to find the "gorgeous" in the everyday details! *wink*

See how fun it can be to use the word "gorgeous" in a repetitive manner?
Try may become addicted.
(although it sounds MUCH cuter when Ella says it - "Gore-juice"). *wink*

For some odd reason I really find the creative detail in Ella's toilet paper art to be quite gorgeous.
I'm not sure how she created so many long strands but regardless...
it's gorgeous.
And what's the harm in it?
We all know she won't be doing things like that forever...
I'm glad I took a gorgeous photo of it. *wink*

By the way...I'm really loving my freshly washed rug from Homegoods in this's very shabby chic...
I wish I would've gotten two others for my own bathroom. *wink*

So happy to read about your attitude towards the toilet paper project. I am sure that is the way creativity begins.

Love your blog!
