A little weekend reading for you

A little reading for youThis is the castle in Salzburg.  It has nothing to do with anything, but isn’t it amazing?

After one of the craziest most exhausting weeks ever, I’m spending the weekend in bed watching Netflix with my pneumonia-ridden kiddo.  There will be sleeping in, there will be no bras {for either of us}, there will be magazines and lots of sparkling water, many hot baths, no interaction with the outside world.  Except for the 8:00 pm screening I’m planning of Crazy, Stupid, Love.  I consider that enough interaction to last a whole week especially knowing Ryan Gosling loves me. {P.S. don’t call me a mommy blogger; I will cut you}

Here’s a little weekend reading for you while I’m away:

Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Carina :

    Crazy Stupid Love is so cute.

    Know what’s even hotter? Drive.

    (Although it’s kind of violent.)

    • Allison :

      I need to see Drive, like pronto. I’ll have Viktor narrate while I watch through my fingers- I hate the violence.

  2. Erin @ Brownie Bites :

    No bras, hot baths, and no interaction with the outside world? Sounds like a weekend to me.

    • Allison :

      I know huh? Like a spa weekend, minus the fever, cough, complete exhaustion.

  3. Tracy :

    thank you for the artichoke love!

    you are gonna LOVE that movie. there’s a locker room scene that…umm..I…uhhh…yeah.

    i think i’m gonna watch the Notebook tonight. I haven’t seen it yet! blasphemy, right?
    (husband is away)

    hope you all feel better!

    • Allison :

      Whaaaa? Put the Notebook in RIGHT NOW and grab a glass or three of wine. And maybe tissues.

  4. Michal :


    • Allison :

      you’re FIRED.

  5. Jenny :

    That movie never gets old! EVER! I mean, except for the mandatory awkward-rom-com-unrealistic-grand gesture-of-love (which I fast forward if I’m feeling efficient). Yay for RyGos being hot and funny! I recommend watching the double feature of Lars and the Real Girl and then Crazy Stupid Love. It’s a great mother with a pneumatically inclined son coping mechanism if I do say so myself…

    • Allison :

      I love that you fast forward to the good stuff, we all should. What is it with pneumatically inclined little boys? It’s horrid!

  6. DDS :

    “Hey girl-pinterest can wait but our bubble bath can’t”
    Made me giggle like a 15 yo!
    Ashamed of myself!

    • Allison :

      Don’t be ashamed, it’s the funniest stuff on the planet.

  7. Heather :

    I am dying over that Ryan Gosling /Mom Bloggers website!!
