Feature yourself Friday!

Talk about losing track of time.

It's FRIDAY? When did that roll around? I had a meeting last night at 8 so by the time I got home and crashed, 10 pm Feature Yourself Friday was a dream floating around in my head, as I was snooooozing. Then my lovely children slept until 11 this morning. I think they knew their mama needed some beauty sleep.

I feel refreshed.

Well sort of. When I get too much sleep I feel way more groggy. Does that happen to you? I got the sleep cycle app on my phone because I've heard good things but I've yet to try it. It's kind of magical and wakes you up when you WONT be tired and groggy.

This just went to no-where land didn't it?

Want some more randoms?

Talk about twins right? And, when did this child get so big? Um.. she's supposed to be 3 not 13.

This little gal is a pirate. Can you tell? I don't know what says pirate more, the eye patch, tattoo or flowered dress.
But, she does get 100 points for popping out her sunglasses lens and using a headband to fashion a eye patch. Atta girl. How can I be mad about broken sunglasses when you use mad DIY skills to use your imagination? Awesomesauce, baby.

Okie dokie.. time for me to wake up, and you all can party hard. Sound good? :)

11??? Seriously?!? Lately I'm lucky if my kids sleep until 7! And yes, I totally know that groggy feeling of too much sleep. But I'm sure it did your body good! Love your little pirate girl :) Sounds like she's on her way to her own brilliant crafting career ;) Happy Friday!

Okay, your girls is a genius. That DIY eye patch is seriously a fabulous idea! May have to use that for a Halloween costume. Brilliant! Tell her I said thanks for the idea! : )

This week FLEW by quicker than I imagined too, and for some reason my 7 am on the dot waker upper slept in until 9:30 with me. How odd, must've been something in the sleepy air. Thanks for the feature yourself opportunity again! This is my second time on your blog posting up a piece of restyled furniture! Have a great weekend! xo

I've heard that you actually "feel" TWO-nights-ago's sleep. So you'll feel rested tomorrow!

My kids are always up pretty early - especially on days I want to sleep a little later! Thanks for hosting today! Have a nice weekend.

I tried the sleep cycle app. And it was good to start with although I was unsure, and still am, about having your phone right next to your head, under your pillow, all night. I liked it until the morning it didn't wake me up and I was late for work! I'm afraid that was enough for me to give it up completely. Hope this helps. x

OMG! SO sorry for totally linking 3Xs. It wasn't working so I kept doing it. Dang! Again, sorry.
