    Maybe I should start calling this “Good Stuff of the Month” or something like that since I can’t seem to get it together enough to post regularly every Friday. What can I say, I have big ambitions but an extremely hard time sticking to task. Oh, well.

    Now back to the post…

    Here are my favorite things for this week, month, or whatever this ends up being!

    Command Picture Hanging Strips, 8-Large, 4-Medium ...

    via Amazon

    Star   I have a small, ok maybe somewhat large, obsession with Command Strips! I use them for everything from hanging pictures, wreaths, hooks, brooms, or whatever else needs to go somewhere that I either don’t want to be permanent or doesn’t have a wall stud behind it. They are one of my perennial DIY favorites!

    I used the Command picture hanging strips on the back of my mirror for my Fireplace Makeover back in March.

    I love these little things because they are not only crazy strong, but they also don’t cause any damage to the wall. {Well, except for in my pantry where I had a nice innocent hook holding my broom and some big giant man with massive elbows dashed the hook to pieces and ripped a pretty little hole in the sheetrock. Gee, who could that have been?}

    If you haven’t tried these yet, there is a Command hook or hanger for anything! If you are like me and you like to change things up, you need these.

    Whenever I need a shot of happiness, I go drool over Caitlin Wilson’s interior design blog. I love the way she uses big shots of color and mixes patterns. Every space she designs has it’s own personality and I LOVE that. If you haven’t seen her work, check her out. She is awesome.

    Star   If you are an American Idol fan, you’ll probably remember the darling BROOKE WHITE from Season 7 of American Idol. She is my very favorite contestant that they ever had. I love her sound, her style, and her hair. Girl has gorgeous hair!

    Here she is singing one of my favorite songs. Girl has gorgeous hair AND talent. I love it.

    Speaking of her gorgeous hair, she did a crown braid tutorial over at LITTLE MISS MOMMA that I have been crushing on. I tried it last Sunday and did I mention I wish I had her hair? Needless to say, the Boho Crown Braid wasn’t as gorgeous on me as it is on her. But, I tried!

    If you have long hair and are looking for an easy feeling updo, you should try it out.

    I adore it.

    Star   Lastly, I found this little art print the other day on PINTEREST and fell in love with it.

    This past Sunday, my hubby’s grandma and another sweet lady named Fern, were honored for Mother’s Day.  Fern’s son talked about how his mother always saw the good. How she was fun, witty, and faced the challenges of life with a smile on her face and determination in her heart. He mentioned that everyone felt better about life after being with his mother. As I sat there, his words touched my heart. That is exactly who I want to be. More than anything, I want my children to remember me as someone who chose joy. I love this simple reminder from The Brave Girls Club to “Choose to see the good stuff.”

    That’s my goal for the rest of the month.

    Well, there you have it…some of my favorite things of the week…or month…or whatever.
