summer heat, late nights, and some pretty light

Oh man, am I ever ready for the weekend. This past week has felt particularly long and much too hot. We had temperatures near 100, and they completely wiped me out. I am hoping for a cooling trend. Even if it's just to the upper 80s. I'll take it!

Mabel is planning a late night with some friends tonight. Do you do late nights? We have a no-sleepover rule, along with everyone else around here, it seems, so late nights are a thing. One of her friends has never seen Studio C (and I am pretty sure her parents are even BYU alum, so it is extra shocking!). Obviously a Studio C marathon is on the agenda. My kids love that show.

I sort of never have a reason to go down to the basement while the kids are at school, so when I popped down there to put clean sheets on the girls' beds the other afternoon, the pretty light in their room stopped me in my tracks. I am a sucker for pretty light. I'll admit that once the sheets were back on the beds, I laid down for a minute and soaked it up.

Have a nice weekend!


  1. My kids LOVE Studio C. :) I love the idea of late nights instead of sleepovers- unfortunately around here- I am about the only one who has this rule-no sleepovers- which makes me look like the mean mom. how late is a late night? ;) have a nice weekend! (by the way- love your girls bedroom- the bed and the mirror- everything- so beautiful!)

  2. I have never heard of that, but I'm not familiar with BYU. : )
    Beautiful photo.
    I can't imagine heat like that already - we're finally enjoying spring here in Illinois which means daytime temps of the low 70s and nighttimes that are still cold in the 30s sometimes, with an occasional odd day here and there of only highs in the 40s. Our trees and flowers are just barely beginning to get going with opening. It's taking so long this year, but I'm enjoying the days at hand.

    Have a nice weekend,

  3. Lovely picture of your beautiful, uncluttered life. (I wish my kids' rooms looked like that.)

  4. My girlfriends and I were discussing the no-sleepover rule this past weekend. Our littles are still too little for it to really matter, but we are all torn about the decision. Would you share sometime why you chose to make a no sleepover rule? I know we'd love to hear another mom's input.
