The Missing Link–Week 4

064 RSHave you ever felt like something was missing from your life? Well, it could just be one of the links below. Hence my post title! You may ask yourself "Is she serious?" Well the answer is "No, I'm definitely NOT serious." I'm just feeling silly. Seriously though, I thought I'd share some of my favorite links with you in an effort to spread the love. What's better is that I thought I'd make this post a weekly thang! No that isn't a typo. I told you I was feeling silly. So the links below may not complete your life, but I'm hoping they, in some way, add to it. I separated them into categories for easy navigation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

1. Love this photographer.
2. You have to see this maternity photo session. It’s gorgeous!
3. Love, love, love these camera straps!
4. For photo books, this is a great place to create one.  They have a HUGE variety of backgrounds, clip art, and fonts to work with.  I made a photo book of Alivia last Christmas and have been meaning to write a post about it.  Can you believe I’m just getting around to it now?  What are we in, May?  Shame on me!

5. Cute idea for displaying your pictures.
6. Great place for stationery, cards, announcements, invitations, etc.
7. You can find some truly stunning photos on this site!
8. This site is a very entertaining one.  Lots of Photoshop disasters! 

1. A silly little book that is sure to make you smile.


1. A sweet place to shop for your wee little ones.
2. The next item on my list to buy Alivia.  It will be great to use for outdoor excursions like the park, zoo, fairs, carnivals, etc.  Bring on the nice weather!
3. How sweet is this patchwork bean bag chair?
4. This retro roadster rocker is so cute.  The entire line is so cute!
5. I absolutely love this place.  I can’t just choose one thing to show you.  Grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a look around; have fun!

1. This is a riot!  I have to buy it!
2. Cookie jar anyone?  Who doesn’t like frogs?
3. The pieces on this site are about the coolest pieces I’ve ever seen!  Someday I’ll have my entire home decorated with these pieces.
4. These pieces are another favorite!  They’ve been around for awhile and I’ve always wanted to own a piece.  I really have to buy myself a lazy susan already!

1. Like designer clothing, but can’t afford it?  No problem.  Here are some great sites that offer all of your favorite designer brands for up to 75% off.
  a. Hautelook
  b. Gilt
  c. Rue La La (this is an oldie but goody)
  d. Buy Now or Never
  e. CUSP by Nieman Marcus
   f. Bluefly
  g. MyHabit powered by Amazon

As always, I can’t leave you a post without some pictures.  I call these “a day in mommy’s shoes.”  Yeah a day in mommy’s shoes, but without the dish washing, laundry folding, dirty bum wiping, boo boo kissing, constant disciplining, dinner cooking, toilet bowl scrubbing………..  I think you know what I mean.

  1. I love these posts you do!! SO much fun and so many great links! I too love photo books. I have done yearly books for the first 2 years for my oldest and need to get one for my youngest who just turned one. Then I do a yearly book for the whole family. Again need to work on 2011 book. So many things I want to do but so little time to do them!! Where do you do your books from? I have used shutterfly and blurb so far.

    1. Thanks for such a nice comment! I've done my books at Mixbook and Blurb. The print quality from both are very good. Mixbook however is way more fun. They have a ton more backgrounds and clipart.

  2. I love your posts and the photos with my Anna and Alivia they look great.... you can see love in ther eyes
