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!

    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!

    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.

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!
