Loving Lately

A few things I'm loving lately...
  Red Velvet Pupcakes: Over the weekend I made a batch of cupcakes for Charlie...
 He loved them! 
 
Fresh Flowers: During the springtime, a magical fresh flower stand parks right outside of my office. Bouquets are $10-$20 and are absolutely gorgeous.

Quick & Easy Dinners: Taco Lettuce Wraps {black beans, corn, fresh salsa, avocado, sour cream, seasonings}.
Unnecessary Target purchases this week:
-2013 Gold Polka Dot Planner: this looked way too "Kate Spade" to not pick it up for $10.
-Gummi Bears: these actually were necessary ($1)
-Thank You Cards: $3.99

Black Coconut Yankee Candle: Whenever my MIL recommends a new candle to me, I immediately run to the store and purchase it. I swear she is  a candle connoisseur. And I have to say, this scent does not disappoint!

  1. Target is such a bank account killer! I went in for sunscreen and diapers and came out with shorts, and baby sunglasses! Dangerous!

    Love the flower stand- that is such a wonderful way to brighten our work week!

  2. Great idea for the dog cupcakes. My boys just had their b-days, and this is a great belated birthday idea for them.
    Love the flowers! I have been cutting 2 tulips from my garden to put in my living room. It's amazing how fresh flowers really perk up a room.
    I have started to substitute taco shells with the lettuce wraps as well - try tuna salad lettuce wraps. Great healthy meal.

  16. I have that cake mix from my BarkBox a few months ago also. Is that where you got it? I need to make some cupcakes. My boy deserves a treat :)

    I love the planner!! I might have to search Target for one next time I'm there.

  17. I'm loving all of this too!! Hanna just barked 3 times in hopes that you'd send some pupcakes her way (girl likes to EAT!).

    I have that same planner from Target, but in coral.... kicking myself for ordering another expensive planner before I found that one. It is perfect and cheap. Yes, please.

    As for those flowers, ahhhh, I need some! I have a cute little sunflower bouquet that has about one day left! :/

    Happy weekend, dear! :)

  20. Some great thoughts, and I'll certainly take it onboard with my writing. I can't help but think you should take a look at a film called 'Freedom Deep' when talking about 'Book of Eli'. The Denzel film shares a staggering amount of similarities to this independent Australian film, particularly the main characters and themes. Hell, even a lot of the shots and scenes are familiar! Keep up the good work, this blog is worth its weight in gold!
