Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.

...that's one of my favorite Dr. Suess quotes. My mom bought me most of the Dr. Suess books when I was little, and I remember sitting in my basement reading them over and over again.

Pottery Barn Kids looks to be mainstreaming the Dr. Suess brand with its cute new line of bedroom linens! How cute is this bedroom??? There aren't a lot of cute and not too over-the-top bedroom linens for toddler boys out there - but I think this one would be perfect! Too bad I just redid my little guy's room.
I really don't think about the Dr. Suess books much these days and I never knew then how deep some of his famous quotes really are. I was looking for a fun quote to use as the title to this post and came across a lot of his famous sayings:
  • Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
  • The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
  • Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
  • You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
  • Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
  • You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
  • Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try.


  1. I love Dr. Seuss. I just saw that ad from Pottery Barn and was going to post about it tonight too! Those are great quotes...thanks for sharing!

  2. i just love dr. seuss. i have all the books and always buy them for baby shower gifts. i got my PBKids the other day and fell in love with the whimsy of this room. the dr. does have some great sayings.

  3. Oh yes. Love Dr. Seuss. I used to read Oh, the Places You'll Go! to my senior students every year at the end of the year. And they liked it. I regularly use it for a grad gift! And there were other books that we sometimes used with high school students. The themes are timeless and ageless. Great quotes. Thanks!!

  4. I love these quotes! That room is cute. Thanks for posting, this made me smile :)

  5. I love that quote. J2's yearbook staff used it on the final page of their book and it was so fitting, as they had such a wonderful class and while they were all excited to be moving on, it was very bittersweet to see it all come to an end. That seemed to sum up their experience perfectly.

  6. How cute is that?? But it's probably super-duper expensive, huh?

  7. i love me some Dr.Seuss...

    "Oh the Places You'll Go" is one of my favorites!

    of course PB is doin' Dr.Seuss now! and you KNOW they'll rock his stuff...

    the colors are amazing!

  8. That is adorable! My kiddos are all too big now, but that would make a SWEET kids room!

  9. I love Dr. Seuss! We even read him in my AP Literature class senior year of high school! For graduation, our family friends bought me the book "Oh, The Places You'll Go!"

  10. Stumbled on your post... love it! Quotes are so true! Love LOVE that bedroom!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
