Diggin’ It

It’s Friday.  Beautiful, beautiful Friday.  Don’t you just love Friday?  Me too.

Here’s what we are diggin’ this week.


1. World Market's Yarrow Curtains:  It’s a really stinking good thing that we don’t have a World Market in our town.  Seriously.  I am, however, headed to the land of World Market this week-end and these beauties may be coming home with me.  If I don’t hate them in person.  Which is always a good possibility.

2. BB Daily Deals:  Rachel's mom has opened an on-line boutique called BB Daily Deals.  Sign up and you will receive e-mails regarding two deals per week.  I hear the selection is going to be great… cute boutique clothing and accessories to seasonal home décor to adorable kitchen items.  This week’s deals were the cute key fobs above and adorable seasonal garland.  Be sure to sign up here!

3. The Color Run:  I am running The Color Run tomorrow with some friends from back home and Nate’s sister.  The Color Run’s slogan is that it’s the “Happiest 5K on the Planet”.  The only rule is that you start with a white shirt.  You can walk, run, or dance your way to the finish.  At each kilometer, you are blitzed with color.  I. Can’t. Wait.


1.  Baby by Summer of Tears: **Warning:  This video has some sensitive material. If you’re easily offended, please skip!**   Nate showed this YouTube video to me last week-end. Mascara was running.  We both about peed our pants.  It’s about how these new parents feel more prepared to have children because of their dog.  Good stuff.

2. Photo Editor by Aviary: Nate thinks this app has better options to get you better photos on your phone.  There are more fine tuning options.  (That’s all I could get out of him.  Seriously, this series is liking pulling teeth.)


1. Self Portraits. Ike’s loving photos of himself this week.  There are no issues with self esteem and our furry friend.  I think this high level of self love comes from hearing “I love your dog”, “That’s the cutest dog ever”, “I’m going to steal your dog” on our nightly walks.  Oh, Ike.

What are you diggin’ this week?  Have you ran The Color Run? What’s your favorite phone photo app? Does your dog like looking at himself in the mirror too?


  1. I watched that YouTube video because I can definitely relate. It got dark really fast, though. Probably won't show it to my mommy friends, but thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Have fun at the Color Run! I'm pretty much obsessed with World Market too. I'm actually going to scout it out at lunch. Please tell me that you're part of the Explorer club? They have a 25% off coupon this weekend. Sign up!

  3. oh. my. gosh. That video was horrifying. lol It feels so wrong to laugh at it. lol

  4. Have fun with the color run! I want to try it next year (that is, if I ever start running...)

  5. World Market is my FAVORITE place for curtains - they are so colorful and fun.

  6. The colour run looks super fun- have a good time!!

  7. I don't really understand the ending of that video. The rest was hilarious though. Have fun running while people pelt you with packets of color. I will say that it sounds more fun than being chased by zombies and running through mud.

  8. Photos of this run must be Instagrammed.

  9. The Color Run looks like SO MUCH FUN! I wish there was going to be one in my area :(

  10. Have fun at the Color Run!! That sounds like a blast. I'm hoping you share some pictures!

    I don't have a World Market near me either...and thank gosh. It's saved me from spending a lot of money that I don't have!

  11. I was just scoping some picture taking apps today - weird timing! Take pics at the color run! (World Market is the best.)

  12. The color run! Very cool, good luck with your mom's online boutique! You never know what people will wear or buy, it could be a goldmine!

  13. I can't wait to hear about the color run!!! I contemplated doing that not too long ago...since you can walk! :-) Can't wait to see pictures!

  14. I'm so jealous that your hitting World Market. Also thank you hubby for the app rec. consider it downloaded.

  15. We don't have a World Market near us either...good thing I guess, since I would do some serious damage there...Have a great weekend!

  16. World Market is having a 25% off sale this weekend!

  17. Ok, that video was funny until the very end and then it was kind of creepy. Nate has a twisted sense of humor. :o)

  18. I have been a big fan of your blog for over a year. I love your sense of humor and the stuff you write about. That said, I don't think that's a video to promote. The end was disturbing and then just upsetting. Don't think there's much of anything funny about suicide especially, or several of the other things in the video. Of course, it's your blog so you can post and promote what you want, but even with such a fabulous blog that you've built here, it's giving me second thoughts about following.

    1. I do apologize. We will make sure to put a nice big ol' warning on anything questionable in the future!

  19. I just stumbled across your blog - love it! Especially your dog and those curtains from World Market! I've been looking for curtains endlessly since moving into my new apartment. Looking forward to reading more!
