A Little Friday Inspiration

Friday, July 22, 2011


Isnt this all just amazing? I am going to start writing down my favorite quotes on sticky paper and attaching them to my bathroom mirror so I can see them daily.

Today I am going to soak up life a little more and give my favorite little person in the whole wide world my full undivided attention. I am having a small case of Mom guilt...so today is all about little trucks and blocks and a trip to the duck pond.

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

Oh and want to know what I hate more than anything?! ANTS. Why are they in my dryer!!?! Umm hello there is no food in there weirdos. They are SO ruude and apparently immune to Windex.



Don't forget to enter this giveaway.

I like it! I'm a little addicted to sticky notes, which is not very "green" of me. I use them for my daily to-do lists. I think the quotations would be a little more inspiring, though!

I love leaving notes around the house for people! A hey good morning next to the coffee maker kinda thing. This a great idea for the mirror though. Sometimes I need a hey you're beautiful anyways in the morning :)

I love the sticky notes idea! I have a big section at the front of my Moleskin journal dedicated to quotes that inspire me, but I might have to do this too.

Erika Lee Sears said...

I love the idea of this! I put quotes all in my art journalling book. :)

Leslie *Fresh Out of Lemons* said...

I'm a sucker for a good quote. You know that I have a whole Pinterest board of them. ;)

One of my favorite gifts that I ever gave a few of my girlfriends was a quote journal. I bought each a pretty journal and filled a few pages with my favorite quotes. All have told me that they have continued to jot down other quotes that they come across.

PS: We have ants in our dishwasher!

Amanda said...

Ants in your dryer?! We had to have pet-friendly exterminators come in, and now they were gone. It was the last straw when I found them on my pretty dresses and cashmere sweaters...

LaynahRose said...

Ahahaha, those rude ants!

La la love the quotes :)

Aww have fun with your little boy!!! You're such a great mom. And how weird! They must be very confused ants! I love these quotes - especially the Eleanor Roosevelt one. That is probably my all time favorite! Have a wonderful weekend girlie!!!

Jessie said...

Ants are the worst! They are so sneaky and intrusive. Grr.

Anne said...

You should see where my sister lives Lindsay. She's got sticky notes and other mantras plasted all over every single wall in the house. Some of them are funny because she never takes any notice of them! LOL Enjoy time with little Maxy. They love the duck pond, don't they? And I hate ants too. Have a great weekend!

Lindsay said...

Susan said...

I love this! So many of my friends have done this with post its and it's so cute! Great inspiration!

Jamie @ charmingly ordinary said...

Yay for you and babe (not the ants, though)! That "full, undivided" part is easy to neglect and not even realize it. XO

Mindy said...

I saw the BEST quote today. "Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not: but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for." Amazing right? I had never thought of it that way. I love it.

I really love the Gandhi quote. They are all very inspiring.

Chunny said...

I have the same way of writing quotes in sticky notes. Mine are the 45 ways in living a happy life in my mirror. Every time I wake up in the morning I always read the sticky notes and it makes me happy and satisfied the whole day. =)

Nonoy said...

I like Gandhi's an eye for an eye. I'd also like to add Proust's "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new horizons, but having new eyes."

Great blog! Cheers! :-)

Collins said...

i love all of those and the one above from nonoy!

Val said...

These quotes are words to live by!! Awesome.

Bibi said...

Hate that for you with the ants... ever tried 409? I used to have a babysitter kid who got the biggest kick out of spraying ants with 409 and watching them curl up... hahaha :)
Have a great weekend.

Stephanie said...

Ants is the dryer?! That IS bizarre.

May I add to your quote collection?
"There is one thing one has to have: Either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art and knowledge."
-Friedrich Nietzche

Rachael said...
