Blog Crushing

Have you ever stumbled upon a blog and just wanted to sit and read every post they've ever written?  Okay, good, because I was thinking maybe it was just me.  A couple of weeks ago Better Homes & Gardens pinned a pin "Blogger We Love" and it was Kelly Carambula from The Best Remedy (formerly Eat, Make, Read).  Her blog is so pretty.  Almost every single post I found myself thinking, "I want to make that" or "I want to eat that now!".  And of course she shares a fair amount of recipes for cocktails.  What isn't to love?  Here are some of the things I'm excited to try from her site.

Smashed Cherry & Whiskey Cooler

Peach & Blackberry Crostini

Grapefruit Margarita

Apple Pancakes

Pretty in Pink

pink ceiling! love the floor and the molding too.

Isn't everything so much prettier in pink?  I think so.  I pinned this gorgeous bath some time ago, but it makes me so happy, I just had to share.  I wonder if the Mr. would approve a pink ceiling in our next master bath?  Wink, wink.  A girl can dream!

Dreaming of Fall

Isn't this Chevron pumpkin not to die for? I came across these fun pumpkins on Pinterest this morning and they instantly made me happy. I think they are definitely on my "To Do" List this Fall!  Check out all of the other cool pumpkins at Feeling Lovesome.  Happy Monday Y'all!

Funday Friday

ice cream

Hello!  It's been a shorter week for me than most, I'm off today and am taking little baby doll to her twelve month appointment.  This means shots, this means crying.  Probably more so for me.  It's hard to keep it together when I know how much it has to hurt Liv.  But, aside from that I'm very much looking forward to spending the day with my little doll.  This week I :

Finished the book Fifty Shades of Grey.  Wow.  My mind is blown.  

Had lunch with an old friend whom I had not seen in over a year, what a very special treat.

Survived this insane heat.  Really, not much of anything has survived in it.  I'm very ready for fall.

Found out where our new Chick-Fil-A is going to be.  Game on! ( I realize this is not exciting news to most, but my love of their food is just insane)

I hope everyone has a super weekend.  I'm looking forward to making a few things I found on Pinterest.  If they are a success, then you'll definitely hear about it.  HaHa.  Happy weekend to all!

Stay Cool, Pony Boy

Oh my, I'm afraid to ask, can it get any hotter here?  I know the whole country is scorching hot, but it's even torture walking outside.  You can't breath, it's like walking into a heated oven.  Everything is dying, it's insane.  So, I hope whatever is on your agenda for this weekend, it involves air conditioning!  Or a pool, wink wink.  We're headed to a birthday party today.  I know there will be water, but not much of it.  I may just lie down in it with the other toddlers.  HaHa.  What a sight. 

Yesterday I got a steal on a few items I wasn't even shopping for.  I ran into Pier 1 to buy a stuffed animal (I know, weird place to buy an item like that, but they seriously have the cutest stuffed animals ever- and what child doesn't love a stuffed animal?) and I found these---

The bowls on the left were $1.89 and the ones on the right were $4.98.  What a steal, right?  I was super excited.  The entire summer collection is on sale right now (and so are the stuffed animals!) and I couldn't resist them.  Here is the Pig I snatched up for Liv a couple of weeks ago. I think she's pretty cute. 

I also scored some great books at B&N's bargain bin.  I could stay in B&N all day.  I love it, and with a Starbucks what more could you want?

I hope your weekend cool and fun!  Until next time.

Happy 4th!

So, I know I've been VERY neglectful of posting on the blog, so I have a lot of catching up to do!  What better way than to post on such a fun day than Indpendance Day?  The 4th has always meant hanging out with my favorite friends, who are really an extension of my family.  Shooting off fireworks, having a few cocktails, eating hot dogs and having a lot of fun and laughs.  I sure hope it means something just as enjoyable to you all as well.  With one part of my family at work today, it's going to be a tad bit off this year.  Oh, and the 4th falls right in the middle of the week so- there's that looming issue of WORK tomorrow.  Ew!  Here are some pics from my Indpendance Day Board on Pinterest.  Enjoy and be safe!(and cool!)

I think this picture is so American!  Love it.

Who wouldn't want one of these awesome ice cream shakes?  Too cool for school.

Don't forget why we celebrate.  Someone else's sacrifice made us all free, and we are the home of the brave!

Sparkler fun.  Love it!
