If I had a chunk of time with nothing to do, I'd like to spend it painting with watercolor. It's always been a favorite medium. And these birch trees are just lovely.

Saw this pin and my heart smiled. Such amazing work. I'm still recovering from a terrible fever-like bug that hit me yesterday. ICK. But hopefully rest tomorrow and then a BBQ yay! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

lovely bundle {seafoam}

No reason for loving seafoam today. I just thought "oooo pretty!" and then made a collection for inspiration. I'm looking forward to catching up on cleaning and feeling organized. And then a superhero birthday party, haha. Anyone else have fun plans or lack of plans?

Here's wishing you a great weekend!

lovely bundle {hint of neon}

Quick! A neon post before this trend goes out of style (in case it's out as fast as it was in). I'm especially loving the neon dipped shoes!

Any fun weekend plans? I am in DC for a wedding and we are making the trip into a mini vacation. Hopefully some beach time included! Have a great one!

A little inspiration to usher in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games! Festivities begin 3pm CST. Do you have fun plans for this weekend? Are you planning any Olympic celebrations?

Enjoy your weekend!

notable: bad decisions...

This is sooo fitting because I am preparing to step back into high school (almost literally). This weekend is my husband's high school reunion (same school I went to) and I can't express how giddy I am about it. Many of my friends will be there, but also I love that I will witness the fact that some people are exactly the same—just ten years older. Small town drama is the cheapest entertainment out there. True story.

go celebrate!

Happy day of celebrating our democratic freedom! Enjoy food, friends, and fireworks—as I will too. I am taking half the week off of blogging, see you next week!

july 4th bbq ::: festive sprinkles

Apparently this year for July 4th all I care about are food related posts. So here's another—with fun sprinkles! After crossing paths with these festive red-white-blue balls, I knew they needed to be used in something like this ice cream sandwich. But taking these photos made me think "perhaps something that doesn't melt would be better". Like smothering rice crispy bars with nutella and then sprinkles. YUM.

Hope you're having a fantastic mid-week workday!


summer please

Am I the only person battling a serious case of summeritis? Dreaming of the days when there was such a thing as summer break....and hoping I can plow through some work to embrace the weekend.

Hoping yours is also a great summer *weekend* break!
