Sand, Sun & Surf

Every year my family goes to the beach for a week. This usually includes my parents, my sisters, my niece and nephews and my grandmas…all in one house…fun right? Our annual trip was last week. I am going to warn  you, there are a lot of photos (none of my grandmas in their swimsuits, disappointing I know). I’ll post them all through out the week. Here are the first few photos.

Happy Weekend!

Hey you, stop and smell the roses (or whatever flower that is).

Have a good weekend!

Recent Finds

Did I ever tell you that I love yard sales? Because I do. I. LOVE. THEM. Here are some of my recent finds:

Cute little bowls. I use them for ice cream. Kind of like I did here.

I hung this gem on the wall in my bedroom.

I really liked the shape of this mirror, but it had a boring wood frame. So, I spray painted it bright blue. Don’t get me wrong, wooden frames can look nice, but this one didn’t (trust me). Now it’s got some spunk.

A handkerchief, for all my boogies.

Actually, I much prefer tissues, so it will not touch my nose. I’m not sure what I will use this for, but I like the pattern.

Last, but not least, this purse with wooden handles.

So, how did I do? Like it? Love it? Hate it?

Spicing Things Up

Sometimes I get really bored with my clothes, ok a lot of times. Since this happens frequently, I can’t just go out and buy new items, so I experiment with what I have.

A few months ago, I bought a lace dress. It needed a slip for under it and I couldn’t find one. So it has been hanging in my closet ever since. I was having one of my “bored with all my clothes” moments and decided to wear it with jeans and a belt. This is the result.

I really like this outfit now. I’ve already worn it twice. We are going to be best friends, I can tell.

My Excuse

Sorry for not giving you any Wise Words for your Monday morning. The reason is, I ran into Captain America the other day (see picture below) and we’ve just been so busy saving the world that I didn’t have time to write you a blog post. You can understand where my priorities stand, can’t you?

But, I will resume with normal frequency (hopefully) the rest of this week.

You’ll Never Guess…

…what my roommate made. Ok, you probably will. It isn’t that hard to figure out. Actually it is quite common to make in the summer. And it is DELICIOUS. Especially when it is in my favorite flavor.

Drum roll please.

Yummy! Here’s the recipe. Evidently, it is easy to make (and you don’t need an ice cream maker), but I can’t confirm that, since I never made it.
