This Tuesday we get a double edition of treasuries! Warm Gradient The warm tones of this collection make me itch for summer, despite the fact that some of them are not very "summery" in a sense. This was a fun one to put together, to show a gradient from a deep red of the Cardinal … Continue reading Treasury Tuesday: Gradients
Who's awesome? I'm awesome! Not to toot my own horn, but I've been doing really well with eating right and going to the gym the past week or so. I started out kind of slow in the beginning of this year: slacking on the diet my trainer gave me, not going to the gym as much, … Continue reading Motivating Workout Shirts
Treasury Tuesday: Under the Sea Green I can't tell if I'd rather break out into my own rendition of "The Little Mermaid" or to go lounge on the beach with a margarita in one hand and a good book in the other, must be the Pisces in me. Either way, I LOVE this color and … Continue reading Treasury Tuesday: Under the Sea
Morning petals and Happy Wednesday again! From the last post, the Saturday before last was definitely a "Me" part-ay! I bought The Hunger Games, made my Sweet Potato Stew (even gave a little to Bruno, who LOVED it), made some gluten-free brownies, and crafted to my little hearts content! My parents were out having dinner … Continue reading DIY Fabric Bow Flip-flops
HAPPY HUMP DAY! Boy, do I need a happy hump day. Things have been ca-razy around here, I'm beginning to think there is never any breathable downtime here! Part of me loves it, the other part hates it, mostly because life gets away from me and I have no idea where it goes! All of … Continue reading Weekend Wrap-up… almost a week late

I'm still working on that. Anyways, I've been dying to make some new wine glasses... and by make … Continue reading DIY Rainbow Fish/Mermaid Wine Glasses
Last Saturday was the big party day for Michelle! After weeks of planning and preparation, it was a fabulously successful day but over far too quickly. Family from both sides came up from North Carolina, Virginia, etc to celebrate the couple and we partied in the humid Maryland air until we couldn't anymore. And, boy … Continue reading Country Chic Party: Neon-colored Mason Chandelier
I'm sure you have all seen this pin on Pinterest recently: Making your own decorative flip-flops! Anyway, I used to do this when I was younger, but obviously Pinterest was never around to share it so I was excited to pick it back up when I saw this tutorial. But sewing beads on seemed like … Continue reading That’s an Idea! – Button Flip-flops
Ok. It is Friday the 13th. And for some reason, this has been labeled a "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day." Why, well that is a long post that I am not at a mind-set to discuss right now (mostly because I'm still working on my caffeine intake). BUT, here is something good and … Continue reading Happy Friday the 13th!
Happy Sunday Petals! I'm rather devistated that my vacation is coming to an end and I will end up at work tomorrow. SAD. PANDA. But such is life. While my original plans for the fourth revolved around sitting on a beach and drinking alcoholic beverages, the actual plan was just as hot but also just … Continue reading Weekend Catch-up: What a patriotic vaca!
