happy fourth of july, everyone!
i wanted to share a post this morning, since i’ll be at my parents’ with the family + EP all day. i don’t think i’ll actually be able to stay with this once-per-day blogging plan [for the ultimate blog challenge], but for now, i’m giving it my best shot.
things i’m loving, 7.4.2012 [not at all related to the holiday]
1.) espresso in the bialetti [this morning is about half espresso + half almond milk + sugar-free vanilla syrup]
2.) elise joy. i both love + hate the internet because of its insane ability to suck me down its black hole. i almost never remember where i’ve come from or how i stumbled upon whatever my newest FAVORITE THING is. but this one… came from then heather said, where i saw a print she keeps on her nightstand, that linked to an etsy site, where i then found the creator’s blog. <3 i don’t think i’ve stopped reading for two days.
3.) from elise’s blog, i then found out about project life. i have researched and explored this for probably 24 combined hours, and i am so excited for 2013. that’s right; i think i’m going to scrapbook. not the regular/real kind, with the stickers and butterflies and cutting and pasting. i’m not bashing it by any means, i just could not get into it, and always felt like i wasn’t creative enough while doing that kind of scrapbooking. this is like scrapbook: simplified. color me excited. in fact, when i tried to tell EP that i was going to do it next year, i got so excited + started talking so fast, my tongue got so twisted that i started stuttering and had to stop + laugh at myself. not at all ridiculous.
i think i will stop at three for this morning. really, i can’t beat project life [in my head] right now, and there’s no use trying. i tried to create a pinterest account just so i could save all the incredible ideas i want to use, but apparently it’s invitation-only. really, pinterest? i’m not even linking to you. i’ve gotta go make a tomato salad and get to the house early to save my mama from a pre-party meltdown. they like things to be nice [and they ALWAYS are], but they get a little stressed.
