I don't even know how to start this post.

Like most here in the blogosphere, I try to keep things light and fun...I don't talk about the things that suck in life, just the things that are fun or funny.

This is not one of those days.

Yesterday, my sister called and told me that one of my good friends....a girl I grew up with, played on sports teams with, went to church with, and cut my hair...just found out that her three year-old has stage 4 cancer.

How can something that adorable be riddled with a terrible disease???

I know how devastated I feel about this...I can't even imagine what she is going through...and I can't stand the thought of the happiest little boy that I have ever met being in pain.

Thank goodness for prayers and for miracles...I know I'm hoping and praying for one now.

I don't usually talk about my beliefs here either, but darn it today is an exception. I am so very grateful for my faith in a merciful Heavenly Father that loves us and blesses us...even in these, our darkest hours, He will comfort and help us if we will ask Him.

Please keep this sweet family and little man in your prayers, they could definitely use the help!

He is so know what he asked for?

I think we can handle that, Matthew.

Christmas List: Plum Street Prints!

My love affair with prints can quite possibly be traced to one of the first shops that I fell in love with:

Plum Street Prints!

Shannon and Lori are the perfect pair to have a cute shop like this one, they have quite the passion for design and it shows in all the fun things you can find in their shop!

Absolutely darling prints...
 Perfect little reminder...

 Aren't you just planning an entire nursery around these in your head???

And their new endeavor...iPhone and iPod touch cases!

All available at their new website!

And all their lovely printables available at their etsy shop!!!

And my own personal pick:

Could you just die over that chevron yumminess??? And monogrammed to boot. Shut the front door.

Go ahead and check it out for know you want to!!! (c:

Plum Street Prints is a sponsor of ATB&B, but all opinions expressed are 100% my own because I think they are all that and a bag of chips (c: In other words, pure awesomeness.

So did you all survive Black Friday???

Hopefully this is just a joke and not a reality for any of you hard core Black Friday-ers...

And on to more important things like making my Christmas wish list (c:

And I know y'all are confused by this last're all like "but Aubrey, you don't *AT ALL*...why would you want that???"

So true...and so the reason is slightly ridiculous...because it would look adorable in my kitchen (c:

Don't worry, I would use it at least once. (c:

I can't quite put my finger on why I love these so much...they actually kind of remind me of something that a crazy golfer would wear...but still, I love them...are we detecting a little of a color scheme here???

And don't even get me started on Christmas wait...YES, get me started on it because I did a whole post on it over at Kristy's super fun blog...

Drop by and say hi and get those creative juices flowing!!! (c:
