For My Mom (who's probably the only person reading at this point)

What happened?  I blacked out. 


Oh I haven't blogged in a month??




What?



Where have I been?  Y'all, I don't even know.  Somewhere between trying in vain to hold on to the baby's last remaining thigh roll, reorganizing our toys for the 655th time and walking past the growing pile of laundry, pretending not to see it, I got out of the blog habit.  I knew I'd be back because I love blogging so much, but I just had to do it.  Someone should make that a tagline for their product "Just do it."



So now I'm back as a Mother's Day present to myself.  And to my Mom, The Suze, who maybe forgot to notice that I haven't blogged in awhile.  Just kidding.  She really doesn't know how the Internet works. I'm pretty sure she thinks it's magic. 



True Story.  I started Beclaire House after I would share other people's blog posts with my mom and she would say, "I love your blog! Everything you post is everything I love." Such a Mom, right? Giving me all of the credit.  I didn't have the heart (or was it the energy) to tell her the posts were from blogs all over the World Wide Web and I was simply hitting the share button.  And really, those are details The Suze doesn't like to bother with.  As long as the pretty pictures end up on her screen she's happy.



And I'm so happy to be here chatting with y'all and sharing pretty pictures again.



But bear with me because we are about to enter Summer a.k.a. No Man's Land.  I have not signed my kids up for one thing this Summer.  Soo we are about to get a lot of quality time together.  A lot. 



It'll be good.  It'll be good.

* amateur iPhone photos by moi. A few new acquisitions over my accidental hiatus. I intend to blog more about them. Lots of monograms, I'm just now realizing. 

** the last image is what happens when it's quiet. Baby on the desk (trying to find candy), his favorite Keurig cups abandoned for more precious desktop items, potential ER visit or unpleasant trip to the Apple Store almost certain. 

*** yes, that's Britney.

    1. Thank you! We've had the rug, but I've probably never shown it on here because I wasn't sure we were going to keep it. It's actually from Nebraska Furniture Mart. The sofa is new (although we ordered it months ago), it's from Z Gallerie in a custom(ish) fabric (hence the wait). I'll hopefully get a post up about it soon!

  6. Lol very cute. So funny about your mom thinking all the blog posts were from you (think our moms are related). Wishing you a wonderful and most relaxing Mothers Day! Missed you and so happy you are back:)

  8. So glad you are back. I can tell you've been busy, two little ones AND everything looks beautiful! I love the monograms and blue and white. I'm searching for some similar white curtains. Details please.

    1. Thank you so much! Those pictures are strategically cropped so no one sees the child climbing the wall in his undies or the pile of toys and kitchen utensils on the floor ;) I will definitely blog more about the curtains, but I've discovered that Ikea is the place to go for white curtains. AINA is 100% linen and sheer or the RITVA which is cotton. Both are much prettier than their pictures on the web site.

  10. You've been missed and I totally relate to your mom's way of thinking. Just keep the pretty pictures coming, no words necessary---I can draw my own conclusions on the beauty in a well designed room. :-)
    Does that help, can you rejoin us, maybe only when time permits?
    xo,
    Karen

(i.e. Your Comment: what's up with the Biebs and Selena Gomez? My Reply: I don't know but it's keeping me up at night. He's so cryptic on Instagram, it's hard to really know)
