my baby brother turned 21 on March 20. this weekend we held a celebration for him at my parent's house. it was so much fun.

this is my best friend, Kelly. we've known each other since 5th grade. we worked on a project together that year - Rocks and Minerals. ever since, we've been two peas in a pod. of course she was there to celebrate with us!

one little word

hey guys.

I hope you are as excited for the weekend as I am. My mom is coming to Mill City. It is always the best time when she visits.

We are going to work on a project called 'one little word' is taught by super talented crafty woman Ali Edwards. Very inspiring. Check it out!

I am the happiest girl and can hardly stand the wait...I bought this neclace yesterday from Nest Pretty Things. I had about 5 necklaces in my cart, and decided I shouldn't give my hubby a heart attack!
For me, this is love at first sight. <3

Happy Saturday, friends!

There is just so much I want to share with you today -

This is absolutely the coolest coffee mug I own. It was a gift from my wonderful mother. She likes to spoil me, and usually brings me a little something whenever we get together (which is never often enough). But I think this is by far the best surprise yet! Doesn't it make you want to sip on some goodness all day long?

My wonderful friend Darcy sent me this AMAZING (and truly vintage) bracelet. It was waiting for me at the post office on Friday (and it was at the end of a very rough week, too - the timing could not have been better). Kindness like this is what makes the world a good place to be.

My brother's birthday is March 20 - so the count down is on until I can unveil his birthday surprise. I am seriously so. excited.

I had my first Etsy sale this week- yahoo! I am playing around with packaging (and trying to use what I have on hand).

I think tonight the hubby and I are going to watch the new movie with one of my favorites, Rachel McAdams! (Morning Glory? I cant remember the name!) I am so excited. She is so darling and I like to pretend that I am her sometimes:).
