some random weekend lovelies...

I was on the lookout for all the loveliness I could find this weekend:)

I finished up some teacher appreciation holiday gifts...

Spent almost an hour getting the dang seeds out of a pomegranate...but it was so worth it.
Aren't they beautiful?
My favorite new breakfast is vanilla greek yogurt with pomegranate seeds and crushed walnuts.  Yum!

My new, very colorful curtains.
I love them.
One day I will photograph the whole room for you...

The kids spent almost the whole weekend in here.
Daddy hooked them up!
He set up very comfy beds with pillows and blankets, a TV that streamed netflix with a que of Christmas movies, and some snacks.
You can't see them but at night the whole patio is decorated in Christmas lights.   They camped out all weekend and it was so cozy and fun!

Driving home from my mother-in-laws birthday celebration yesterday we came upon this peacock!
I had to take a photo from the car.
I have a slight obsession with peacocks and I am inspired to paint one soon!

Little Miss found some lipstick yesterday...and applied it over, and over, and over again ;)

Easiest treat ever...
I am on the hunt for Hershey hugs...the white striped ones...they seem to be out of stock everywhere!

Three more half days of school...and then it's time to celebrate!
I hope you are having a blessed holiday season...and finding lots of your own lovelies...

I love pomegranates and was so pumped when I came across this post on one my fav blogs - you have GOT to check it out! - Wow that doesn't look like a very good link. Go to and it's the Nov 14 post. Have fun checking out her adorable creations too;)

Hi there! Just found your blog tonight and am enjoying it! I adore pomegranates also... So delish, and so good for you. You may already know this, but I didn't discover it until this year: you can break pomegranates open and pull the seeds apart sooo much easier underwater! Cut off the top and bottom and discard them, then score the flesh, then put it into a large bowl of water and break it apart. Continue to break apart & pull seeds off underwater. So much easier and so much less mess.
