She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Simply LKJ

Today one of the sweetest friends I have in blogland is sharing her love list.  Lauren blogs over at Simply LKJ and she has the most genuine, kind heart.  Her daughter's are so very lucky!  Over in her corner of blogland she shares home decorating projects, beautiful pictures of her garden and her love for life and the Lord. Take it away...

Hi everyone!  I am super excited to share what I AM loving and what I am NOT on Michaela's blog today.  Michaela is such a sweetheart.  I have two daughter's of my own (17 and 21) and would be proud to call Michaela one of my own.  She is passionate about life and her schooling, and sets a great example for young Christian women! So here is what I'm loving...

She Loves Me:
1. Hydrangeas...ours are just about to bloom!

2. My silly girls...they always make me laugh!

3. The month of May...Mother'sDay (I was spoiled beyond belief, our 23 wedding anniversary, school's out for summer, and a much needed vacation-just hubby and I!!!

4. Scotty...what momma of two girls wouldn't like to bring this sweetie home?  I so admired how he interacted with his sister  via skype last week!!

5. Tom's espadrilles.

She Loves Me Not:
1. Need I say more?!!!

{Michaela's Note: I was going to make this image full-size, but I really couldn't handle it. It's THAT bad(:}

2. Turning 40, hormones, lack of sleep!!!

3. Mean Girls, what do they hope to accomplish???!!!
4. Exposed bra straps...since when did undergarments become apparel???

5. Lastly, kids misbehaving in restaurants.  I've been there...don't get me wrong, but if your child is screaming at the top of their lungs, kicking the back of the seat of the person behind them, throwing things two tables over, please remove them from the situation until they calm down!!!

Thanks, Lauren! So enjoyed hearing your loves. I agree- those hydrangeas are beautiful. One of my favorite flowers! And my mama taught me well and always made me hide the extra straps.  Keep it classy girls (:
Go say hello to Lauren!


Extra, Extra: read all about it!

I'm over at Simplified Bee today sharing what I'd do with this Jonathan Adler console table:

Go check out my design, along with 3 other very talented student design bloggers who you're sure to know from blogland!  I can't wait to see what they've come up with (: Cristin's series is so fun. 

I'm also over at Katie's blog, The Bright Life, dishing on ways to decorate a small home, apartment or rental place.

Phew! That is all.  Happy Wednesday!


  1. Thanks for having me today Michaela! You are such a doll. Okay, going over to check out what you've been up to.

  2. Love those espadrilles! and the baby crying...whooo I remmeber those days well. Actually, though my boys were pretty good. :)

  3. That jean shorts picture is hillariously bad!! Glad you did not supersize it, I might not have been able to finish my cereal! I love Hydrangeas and if my son acted up like that I would be so embarrassed I would most certainly take him out of the restuarant!

  4. cute the mean girls and lindsay :D
    xx the cookies
    share the feeling
    visit dear <3

  5. I agree! I hate kids misbehaving in a restaurant. My mom would always take us outside until we behaved. If we wanted to go in we had to stop... and it worked.

  6. Totally agree with all her likes and dislikes!! Great post!

  7. Goodness girly, you've got a full plate today! Hope your day is going well. :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  14. That photo of that woman is hilarious... I could bet a million dollars that I can guess her nationality (not american), but I don't want to say because I don't want to promote negative stereotypes.

    Those hydrangas are gorgeous!
