"what the creepy?"

Friday night...I'm sitting at home, being lazy, when Ashley and Ali decide to come rescue me. As I'm waiting for them to pick me up, I glance out my backdoor to see if they're here yet. Wait a second...there's people out there! I open the door saying, "What the creepy?" only to hear, "CRAP!" and see several boys take off into the bushes. Uh oh...I think I just caught someone asking me to Prom. AWKWARD.

But despite the embarrassment date persevered and returned a few hours later to finish the job.
After several rings to the door bell..I found this:
Inside the "hart-socks" was this note:
 Hmmmm...the key?
oh wait..the BASKETBALL KEY!
Low and behold:
And right in the center of the key was THIS:
And what was inside the basketball?
A wee bit clever?
capital YES!

the color purple

more specifically...PURPLE KEDS!
Last week I was browsing through Nordstrom's online shoe clearance sale and came upon THESE:

My heart beat faster, my eyes opened wide, my feet got all tingly,
my heart fell in love.
I bought them without an ounce of hesitation.
After a week of much anticipation...they arrived in the mail on monday.
I saw the box and did a little dance for joy.
There they were: SPRINGTIME all wrapped up in a box.
So Tuesday...I wore a pair of purple keds that made me ridiculously happy :)
And the sun even came out to celebrate.

raindrops on roses

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens" 
those endearing lines from "The Sound of Music" are inspiring. 
So inspiring in fact, that I have decided to make a list of my own.
A list of my own favorite things: sights, sounds, smells, feelings, activities...
whatever it is that brings a smile to my face.
And in doing so, I have discovered that Julie Andrews was right.
That "when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad."
 It works.
Try it.

My Favorite Things:

-feeling my skin soak in the warmth of the sun
-hot chocolate
-feeling sore after a long, hard workout
-Broadway musicals
-the freshness of Spring
-the smell of rain

-matching words with fonts
-driving with the windows down and singing at the top of my lungs
-falling asleep on the beach
-kisses on the forehead
-being rocked to sleep, like a baby
-taking long, hot showers
-sitting and just talking with a friend, and not being bored at all
-the feeling of accomplishment after finishing a project
-the color yellow
-the hungry anticipation before eating a favorite meal
-vintage clothing...vintage anything really

-old movies
-Audrey Hepburn
-reading on a rainy day
-Disney movies
-the "swish" sound of a basketball going into the basket
