Weekend Happiness

I woke up today feeling crampy and gloomy. So, to cheer myself up I bought this awesome poster from the Photojojo store. They sent me a discount code on Friday and I took advantage of it. :)

P.s. I got my poster in black. :)

Happy Weekend!

The boy and I went to a wedding back in March. They had a photo booth and we had a blast in it! This is a compilation of some of my favorites. It includes myself, the boy, my mom and my friend Laura.

Have a great weekend! Hope you have fun!

Summer Camp

The boy has been gone all week. He's been a rowdy counselor at a camp put on by our church. I've missed him immensely and I'm ecstatic he'll be back tomorrow. :)

I can't wait to hug his neck.

Ps. I have no idea if they have this at the camp, it just reminds me of Heavyweights. :)

Take a little visit.

I've re-opened my etsy shop. I've added the items that didn't sell in the festival. Go take a peek. Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell everyone you know. Spread the word.

Fuego Fuego

Nicely done, Stephanie Hughes! Stephanie designed the Fuego hot sauce line as her final project at the University of Washington. I'm loving the way she designed this. I would by this sauce just to have it sit on my counter!

Sorbet for a summer day

As I've said before, I have a very big sweet tooth. And this just looks...DELICIOUS. What a perfect treat for a hot summer day...

Strawberry Mango Sorbet


1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 quart strawberries, leaves removed
1 mango, peeled and cubed
1 tbsp vodka
Juice of one lime


Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then set aside to cool completely.

Put the strawberries, mango, vodka and lime juice into a food processor and puree. When the sugar syrup has cooled, add it to the strawberry puree. Freeze with your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Makes about one pint of sorbet.

Hat Love

I've been looking for a good summer hat for quite a while. Something to keep my face in the shade, cool me off from the hot summer sun. I've always been a fan of the floppy brimmed hats, but I'm going to expand my hat horizons and go for something different. I've got it narrowed down to two...

Summer Shoes

Like most girls, I love shoes. Since I'm not a fan of summer, I like to cheer myself up with making my feet look pretty. Here are some of recent favorites. Which ones do you like best?

I sold some art!

The festival was a success! I sold 4 paintings. There were 30 vendors in the festival and thankfully, I was on the lawn. The heat was almost unbearable, but I met some great people and had a good time. It's such a neat feeling knowing something I created is hanging in someone's house.

My two favorite parts of the day:

1. When I sold my first painting. (This family with two little twin girls bought "Sundress" [3rd picture down, yellow painting with red flowers]. The little girls picked it out, they were so excited. :) )

2. Later, 2 girls came by the booth one of them said something that made my day...

"Your paintings make me feel happy."

Dear girl, you make me happy. :)

To view more of my art, visit my etsy shop.

I scream, You scream, We all scream for...

With the crisp, summer air around us, I've had a lot of cravings for ice cream. Smooth, melt-in-your-mouth homemade ice cream. Plus, how cute are these American Flag ice cream spoons? Great for 4th of July!

What's your favorite flavor?

Want List

I've been wanting to give my camera some style. This fabulous camera bag and the bright teal strap are very high on my want list. Isn't that bag just divine?!

My birthday is coming up soon...

Day Trips

The boy mentioned recently that he wants to take some day trips this summer. I am all about that. Of course, the beach was my favorite idea. Seafood, walks in the sand, the salty air...Yes, please.

How amazing would it be if we could take our trips in this!

Love Me Some DIY

I'm a huge fan of DIY projects. I've started a list of some I'd like to use to decorate the new apartment. Can't wait! :)

Here are some my favorites...

I'm in love with the flower pillow!

Such cute vases! (and painting idea!)

I know I don't have a backyard, but still love these torches.

You can find more here and here.

New Space Inspiration

My apartment lease is up at the end of August, and as of Monday, it has been officially decided that I will move in with my future sister-in-law! I can't tell you the joy this brings me. We are going to have an absolute blast in the year we will live together. We've already started searching for places and talking about paint colors.

I haven't had a roommate in about a year and a half, so I'm excited for the change. (I've always liked change.) Here's a few photos from my inspiration folder.
