My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


August in Instagram

August was a crazy fun month and full of making memories with my little family.  We ate a lot and went on lots of little road trips to the coast.  See that bear?  We were in the kitchen of the beach house and a mama bear and cub came and sniffed the bird feeders.  The mama bear smacked them down and they gobbled up all the bird seeds.  I have never seen a "wild" bear that close before except maybe the zoo but it was a little scary.  Tim did ask me if bears know how to open doors- which made me laugh because I don't think they know how to open doors.. I mean maybe a circus bear could but not a wild one. ok maybe now I sound a little crazy.  The bears went away when we knocked on the window but still scary! whew!

September always seems like a short month because of labor day and my birthday is this month. and I know I look forward to all the wonderful birthday wishes and my husband trying to surprise me with a gift that I always find before my birthday :) I can't help it if he hides things horribly! but my husband asks me what I want for my birthday and I always just say I just want a date with my family and maybe watch a movie together.  I guess I am just a simple girl when it comes down to it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Doing anything fun?

That's the best kind of birthday present though! The things you can't wrap up with a pretty bow. Hope you had a good (bear-free!) weekend. I love that Nora's ice cream cone is bigger than she is! xo
